My self-summary
I am not good at summarizing/introducing myself and therefore I don't like it. Or maybe it's vice-versa, I don't know for sure...
What I’m doing with my life
Living, I guess... Trying to give the whole thing called existence a meaning at least.
I’m really good at
Sometimes I think it could be talking and listening. Though it may only be procrastination and self-doubt after all...
The first things people usually notice about me
Some people I met in my life refered to me as eloquent, kind but withdrawn or even an introverted intelectual. I prefer to doubt that as I also got described as weird, arrogant furthermore egocentric and affective, too talkative at other times.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
-Literature:
- All time favourites: Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit, A Song of Ice and Fire, Steven King, especially The Dark Tower Series and It
- I have a certain thing for Thomas Harris' novels and (psychological) crime or political/Sci-Fi novels in general. May it be quite dystopian or not so happy ending.
- Philosophic works(Schopenhauer, Sartre, Spengler, Camus Zizek and Slotterdijk to name a few but personally important authors.)
- I also like historical settings. As an exampel I would choose Shogun by James Clavell.
- When it comes to fantasy topics I would say I enjoyed Harry Potter, just not a real fan. But I really liked Jonathan Strouds Bartimaeus novels and I would highly recommend them.
Music:
- Definite, long time favourites: German stuff like Rammstein or Subway to Sally, Linkin Park, Turmion Katilöt, VAST, SOAD/Serj Tankian, Laibach. To drop a few names.
- Classical/Soundtracks
- But I'd say have I a wide taste in music, with a tendency towards Metal.
-Movies:
Too much and therefore too hard to call out favourites here.
But I would definitely high-light every movie from Studio Ghibli/Myazaki. I have a nerdy, nostalgic relation to the old, japanese Godzilla movies. And regarding movies Edward Norton is in, I usually can't say no. I worship that actor!
- Documentaries. Really cannot get enough of them. May it be about (recent) politics, culture, historic events, nature and animals or scientific topics.
Shows:
- I really love Star Trek, especially DS9 for it's more critic and grim, not so much utopian view, but Next Generation of course is an absolute classic. I also really enjoyed Babylon 5 and The Sopranos. I'm totally hooked on GoT since it aired. And I fucking love Fringe. I did enjoy Andromeda but I see it as one of the weaker Roddenberry inspired series. When it comes to Comedy I really love South Park or Parks and Recreations. The It crowd really was fun aswell. I have to say I have some kind of tendency towards cynical or sarcastic humor regarding comedy, but cleverness, witty and (pop-)culture references are always tolerated as well.
-Food:
- Also a very wide taste, literally. Really can not clearly identify a preference when it comes to this.
The six things I could never do without
Food, water, shelter, clothing, sleep and social interaction. Basic human needs and stuff.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Existential stuff yet also the most trivial. I sometimes compare myself to the figure of Oblomov as I am overthinking things most of the time - getting lost and stuck somewhere inbetween Weltschmerz and utopia...
On a typical Friday night I am
At home.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I find complimenting to be very akward and it makes me feel rather uncomfortable :S
You should message me if
I know should write something clever here to promote myself - it's a dating platform and so, but... Just message me... if you want to do so.
