My self-summary
I am a musician, writer, nerd, occultist and libertine.

cloud90224 is my fiancee, bandmate and partner in crime. We are polyamorous. We are mostly looking for new friends in our new town (we don't know anyone in Washington at all). We are also open to the idea of dating a nice bisexual person collectively. And while it may sound intimidating to date a couple, I assure you it is rather nice.

I have extremely ecclectic tastes in pretty much everything: Music, movies, literature, comic books, art, food, drink and so on and so forth. I'm a decent conversationalist, or at least I know at least one small something about everything, so I can take part in essentially any conversation (or try, at least).

I am a quixotic character.

Oh, and some of my opinions (in the broad sense) run as follows in this bulleted list:

- Art: Art is the expression of one's thoughts/feelings through a physically perceivable medium. It is a method of communication; and is only really valuable if others are able to interpret its meaning and apply it to themselves. The rub is that the method is also more arcane than more direct communication. It will never be understood by all, and the broader the appeal, the less it actually means. I'm constantly torn by the competing drives toward specificity versus mass appeal. Where is the best balance?

- Politics: Baby, I'm an anarchist.

- Religion: Universalist Hermetic Christian.

- Feminism: Equity Feminist

- Racism: I can't abide racism of any kind. It is my opinion that one cannot be both a bigot and a good person (at least not in today's society).

- Philosophy: Neo-Platonic.

- Psychology: Generally, I lean toward the trans-personal school of psychology which is, essentially, the offspring of Jungian psychology.

- Science: I love science! Never really had a head for number-crunching, but I can converse on the theoretical end for hours. My favorite kind is "Science!" with a mandatory capital "S" and an exclamation point.

- Bulleted Lists: Are awesome!
What I’m doing with my life
I and my bandmates are moving the first week of September to Tacoma, WA. After five years of limited success in Pittsburgh, PA, we're moving to a bigger pond. The Pacific Northwest is calling us and we have decided to answer.

My band is called Buffalo Buffalo Buffalo and we kick ass. We also play music. We're on the rise to stardom. I'd say "meteoric", but it's not. We're scratching and fighting for every inch the world will give us, and there ain't no way in hell we're letting go of any of it.

I'm also looking to network myself with as many filmmaker, musical and thespian types as I can find. If you have a project that needs people, I offer my services.

I have a blog where I'm laying down theological groundwork for a church I'm trying to start. www.wordpress.com/continuingrev
I’m really good at
I'm can write, play music, sing and cook serviceably well. Aw, hell, who am I kidding,? I fucking own at all those things.

I'm extraordinarily good at having opinions. I try to have as many as possible.

I'm a really good listener, except when I'm a really bad listener. It's kind of a coin toss, really.

People have said I'm an exceptional dungeonmaster.
The first things people usually notice about me
People first notice the long hair. Then they usually notice that I am well-spoken, opinionated and a conversationalist. Next, that I'm friendly, genuine and empathetic. I think that about spans the entire first impression (for most people).
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
FICTION: Anything by Dostoevsky, Tolstoy or Gogol. Anything by C.S. Lewis, J.R.R. Tolkien, or George MacDonald. Anything by Stephen King. Everything ever written or scribbled or falsely attributed to Edgar Allen Poe. I rather like detective stories like those by Dashiell Hammett or Raymond Chandler. Science fiction rocks, especially Jules Verne, H.G. Welles, Isaac Asimov, Phillip K. Dick, Orson Scott Card and Michael Crichton. Chuck Palahniuk is amazing as hell. Christopher Moore is very funny.
NON-FICTION: Israel Regardie, Paul Foster Case, Franz Bardon, Henry Cornelius Agrippa, Iamblichus, Michael Harner, Donald Tyson, Meditations on the Tarot by Anonymous, the Bible, the Bhagavad Gita, the Corpus Hermeticum, Fang and Fur, Blood and Bone by Lupa.

B: Movies are totally my forte. My favorite movies ever are Citizen Kane, Pulp Fiction, The Big Sleep, Shawshank Redemption, Princess Bride and Dr. Strangelove. I very much enjoy the directorial styles of Stephen Spielberg, Stanley Kubrick, Alfred Hitchcock, John Huston, Fritz Lang, Orson Welles, Terry Gilliam, Quentin Tarentino, Robert Rodriguez, Kevin Smith, The Coen Brothers, Wes Anderson, The Wachowski Brothers, or Ridley Scott(Well, except this new Robin Hood film... ).

C: Music is life. I like every genre of music with no exception. There are examples of every genre that I love, and examples of every genre that I hate.
So far, in 2015, I have enjoyed the following albums: Beat The Champ by The Mountain Goats, The Mindsweep by Enter Shikari, Pale Horses by mewithoutYou, The Monsanto Years by Neil Young, 12 Reasons to Die II by Ghostface Killah, Pound Syndrome by Hopsin, American Spring by Anti-Flag, The 25th Hour by Terror, Skeleton Crew by Madisen Ward and the Mama Bear, Rhythm and Reason by Bhi Bhiman, The self-titled release from Nathaniel Raitliff and the Night Sweats, Pleasure to Meet You by Dead Sara.
I didn't like this year's Modest Mouse or Mumford and Sons albums, but I typically have enjoyed both.

D: Literally, I like every food. There is no food I dislike.
Six things I could never do without
Music, Friends, Stories, Food, Water and Shelter (in no particular order)

NOTE: I'd put God on this list, except that it would be silly. If God is omnipresent and omnipotent; then her total energy must be infinite and therefore exceed the size of the universe. This being said, one could never be 'without' God because everything is within God. Thus, to say that one "couldn't do without God" is like saying one couldn't do without one's self (or some other, equally meaningless paradox of words).
I spend a lot of time thinking about
All the artists have become graphic designers. All the poets and writers are spinning ad campaigns for major corporations. The Revolution is available in your local, suburban mall across the aisle from the Abercrombie and Fitch, and next to the Gap. You can buy a rebellion in a neat, slick package. The new counterculture are outfitted by clothes, music and accessories produced by the same corporations who peddle to the mainstream, and they'll sell it all to you over-dosed, over-priced and over-the-counter at any of their nation-wide retail outlets.

Every time you bite into an ear of corn or any of the countless products containing corn products, you are essentially sucking down crude oil. Mmm, fossil fuels.
On a typical Friday night I am
Out with friends. Doesn't matter where. Shows, clubs, bars, roaming the streets, movies, Denny's, whatever.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I practice hermetic magic, and I believe it actually works. It's not something I hide, or anything, but it's something I don't bring up in casual conversation with, say, coworkers.

I'm not, in general, a private person. I don't keep secrets (unless it's someone else's). But, there are some things (like polyamory and the occult) which are just easier not to bring up in certain social groups.
You should message me if
I am really, always looking for new friends. I get bored easily and I'm always scouring for people to join me at music shows, parties and movies. I tend to keep friends for a long time and I'm fiercely loyal to anyone I call "friend".

If you're the open-minded sort who'd be interested in dating a polyamorous group collectively, I think you should really consider messaging me in the near future. Also, if you're part of a polyamorous group who might be up for some double-dating, that would be neat.

If you are a guy and are interested in romance, message me. However, if you are a girl, you should message Chelsea cloud90224.

The most succinct way to describe the people I would like to date is: cute, bisexual, polyamorous, nerdy, occultist musicians. As few as three out of six of those is acceptable.

By the way:

Don't message me if you think Nickleback, Ke$ha or Bon Jovi is awesome music (it may be okay as a guilty pleasure, as long as you recognize they are horrible). Don't message me if you've read any of the Twilight books because you enjoy them. Don't message me if you believe Siddhartha Gautama is burning in hell. Don't message me if foul language or off-colour jokes offend you.
The two of us
