I am giving this profile a complete overhaul because I am changing. I feel it, maybe it's what some people call growing up, maybe it's just gas. I express myself in odd ways, I take music to heart, I like to pretend. I think that life is nothing without a curious disposition and a song in the heart, that people need to share more, and that when it comes right down to it, you, dear reader, is all that matters.
So in short, I'm someone of eclectic and varied tastes who self-identifies as a geek. I am: a gamer of the roleplaying and board/card variety; a budding costumer; a lazy writer; a city-dweller who loves every dirty, dusty corner of this strange city; an explorer in the fields of good music; a dilettantish historian; a lover of the English language; and a consummate compiler of semicolon-separated lists.
When I grow up, I want to be some hithertofore unseen hybrid of Oscar Wilde, Noël Coward, and Klaus Nomi.
Lately, I find myself examining the fine detail of life, opening it up and examining the gears, springs, and quartz of it. It looks like it needs a little adjustment, so I'm in the process of taking out my tools and putting on the loupe to make it run even more spectacularly than before.
I am keeping, things, and interesting
Movies: Some currently circulating faves include Deadpool, Mad Max: Fury Road, Cabin in the Woods, Clue, Velvet Goldmine, (most) anything by Terry Gilliam, Labyrinth, etc. If it's deeply evocative/emotional or hopelessly nerdy, mind-blowingly fantastical or breathtakingly beautiful, I probably like it. That said, I don't watch many movies these days.
Shows: In fandom (I know, shut up) terms, Doctor Who is my show. I know an embarrassing amount about the world it occupies and by extension a lot about how TV was made in the UK from 1963-1989 and then again from 2005-the present. Also genre classics like Buffy, Angel, Firefly, Star Trek, etc. My geekiest act ever was watching the canon of Star Trek in roughly in-universe chronological order. I followed this up by watching The X-Files in its entirety, complete with the movies and the show with one of the worst theme tunes ever, the Lone Gunmen spinoff (so much to say about this, too much for here.) I've been through my Fringe, Dollhouse, and Battlestar Galactica periods in the last few years, and am now trying to stay current on current shows (!) like Crazy Ex-Girlfriend, The Flash, Grimm, iZombie, Venture Brothers, and MORE.
Music: I have an undying love for Kate Bush, but I'm always exploring new music in genres I enjoy (right now I'm alternating between The Protomen and October Project, explain that) and unlocking the joy that is well-done mashups. Otherwise, my musical tastes run the gamut from Tom Waits to TMBG to Ultravox to the Tiger Lillies and is very hard to classify. I like music with depth and meaning, often on the slightly dark side. I'm currently hung up on Sarah Bareilles and her incredible capability to effect emotion in even a stone. And because her song Brave is the anthem a generation of disconnected, inward-looking people need.
Food: Honestly, I suck at answering this question. My last job put me in contact with a ton of different cuisines on a daily basis, so I developed a difficulty in making up my mind. But I am very food-adventurous, always have been. I'll try almost anything once.
Also, I moisturize. Now more than ever.
