My self-summary
Quiet, sarcastic bisexual nerd looking to add more weirdos into his life. Here's an assortment of facts about me:

-I grew up in a village where I was 12.5% of the population.

-Learning about probability theory and about intersectional feminism are easily the two most important things that happened to me in my 20's.

-I'm almost certainly aromantic.

-I love cold and I utterly hate summer. I suspend all socialization in those horrifying months. People think it's hilarious.
What I’m doing with my life
Writing and programming and hoping to produce something I'll be proud of. I'll settle for something I can buy whiskey with though.
I’m really good at
Cooking. I have total mastery over rice and over chicken soup and my allioli success rate is well above 50%.
The first things people usually notice about me
My unfriendly, humorless facial expression. I tell myself people find it sexy and mysterious. My fake smile is a horror I only unleash when I feel threatened and want to clear the room.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Food:
I like everything, and I like it a lot.

Movies:
Amadeus (My favorite of all time. To me, they don't get any better than that), Ghost World (my definitive teen angst movie), Cabaret, The Girl Who Leapt Through Time, The Night of Varennes, Robocop (really, seriously, a brilliant movie), Persepolis, Shortbus.

Comics:
Gunnm (Pretty much the piece of fiction I've enjoyed the most in my life. My goal is to be able to create a story and characters as engaging as these. I've obsessed over every panel trying to figure out what makes it so good. It's also interesting to look at the sequel to figure out what makes it so disappointing) , Persepolis (can't decide on whether the movie is better), Box Office Poison, anything by Jiro Taniguchi.

Books:
-War and Peace (After you get through the first 200 pages it's pretty much the best book ever)
-This Boy's Life (My childhood wasn't even a bit as bad as Tobias Wolff's, so it makes me feel guilty that I identified so much with his)
-Harry Potter and the Methods of Rationality (Read it. READ IT!)
-Midnight's Children (A weird case. A guy in a hostel gave it to me and I had nothing else to read. I couldn't stand the writing style. Some sentences pissed me off so much I would give up reading it in disgust. Then I would wonder how it continued and I would pick it up again, sometimes from the trash can. When I was done i realized "Fuck, this is now one of my favorite books." and I read it again.)
-Notes from Underground (If you are bitter and misanthropic as hell this is a great book. Now that I'm not much of either anymore it's lost some charm but is still a lot of fun, in its own horrifying way.)
-Lilith's Brood (This book made me feel very, very, uncomfortable. It was awesome. I might have showered afterwards.)
-Worm: A web serial of 1.6 million words, many of which need to be cut out. I almost gave up on it, and I'm glad I didn't because it's been my favourite read in the last several years.

Videogames:
Deus Ex (the old one) and X-Com (the old one). Telltale are kicking ass lately. The stuff Christine Love makes, it's all great.
The six things I could never do without
Writing material, reading material and solitude. Good food, music and people. I think that's all I need to live. I'd miss booze and videogames a whole lot, though.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Rationality, laziness, politics, social justice, storytelling and game design. But mostly food and sex.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I close the curtains, make sure no one is home, put on my headphones and start dancing like an idiot. Occasionally dogs join me.

You'll never see it though.
You should message me if
You think that we might get along and that what we are looking for is compatible.

I'm a bit of a loner; the idea of sharing my life with someone is not appealing to me. What I do find appealing is sharing moments and good times with people that I like and falling for them now and then.

I have a tendency to fall for awesome cold, geeky, promiscuous, intellectually passionate people.

Also, if you know of a place that serves mulled wine in Barcelona message me with it and enjoy my eternal gratitude.
