ATTN: I'M TRANSGENDER, PRE-HORMONES, CHASERS CAN MOVE ON
I'm mostly off guys tbh, I've been hurt a lot and find it difficult to open up and trust men. Socialist, but not as active as I'd like to be. I try to make a living with my creative skills, which are largely based around traditional media. Like games that heavily feature strategy, though tend to be put off by actual so-called strategy games. I have anxiety problems and find it difficult to start a conversation or join an existing one.
Wait: Selling paintings during a recession, when you're not - and intend never to be - part of the Charles Saatchi crowd? Yep, that's a great career choice. (Aside: it isn't.)
I'm not a guilty secret. If you can't bear to introduce a trans partner to the other people in your life, don't invite them into your life.
What? It's dead good.
Building a portfolio of display models. Warhammer type stuff.
Commissions as and when.
Writing down all my vegan recipes and planning a YouTube channel for them.

I'm a fairly introverted person, so if there's anything about my personality that contributes to first impressions it's being a bit quiet and awkward.
Telly: I actually lived with no TV for a year and didn't miss it one bit. But I did have DVDs and internet, so that doesn't count as no telly, not really. Either way: Archer, Yes Minister, Police Squad, Daria, PhoneShop, TMWRNJ, Blackadder, Beavis & Butt-head, King of the Hill, Star Stories, Brass Eye, Monk, Walking Dead, blah blah etc. Graham Linehan always seems to produce the goods. Also, The Goon Show. It's not telly; it's better. It's like a podcast you could only stream at a certain time.
Films: Aliens, A Town Called Panic, Natural Born Killers, Twelve Angry Men, Big Lebowski, Die Hard, Idiocracy, Some Like it Hot, Wall Street, Falling Down, Laputa, Terminator 2, The Sting, All Monty Python...
Music: Mostly harder stuff - Pantera, Public Enemy, Dead Kennedys, Crystal Castles, NIN, Otep, Ramones, Placebo, KMFDM, Black Sabbath. Aside from headbanging stuff: Presidents of the United States of America, Dvorak, Beastie Boys, Buddy Holly, George Formby, Tchaikovsky, Johnny Cash, Willie Nelson, Rolling Stones. And I listen to game soundtracks; not modern stuff with all licensed acts, but bleepy old school Nintendo, Capcom and Enix stuff.
Food: Love Thai. And I get a lot of love for my vegan cuisine. Haven't tried my ocean pie? Well, then.
Standup: Yeah, I'm breaking your mould, OkCupid. Whatchagonnado? Richard Herring, Stewart Lee, Richard Pryor, Katherine Ryan, Harry Hill before he got hooked by ITV and the advertising industry, Eddie Izzard, French & Saunders, Bill Hicks, Bill Bailey, Tim Minchin, Dylan Moran, Billy Connolly, Rich Hall, Dave Allen.
Aside from that, I pay attention to world events. Outspoken commentary on economics, animal ethics and civil liberties have gotten me followed by hundreds of strangers, and unfollowed by dozens of friends. I count both of those as indications of success.
