My self-summary
I'm a former philosophy and library science student and sort of a nerd. I like interesting TV shows like Rome, Buffy, and The Venture Brothers, but kind of ambivalent about TV itself. I'm omnivorous but very veg-friendly (I like tofu and don't understand why everyone doesn't). My politics are mostly based around identifying power structures and being mad at them.

I'm not evangelistically polyamorous but it's what I've found seems to work for me.

I love wintery weather and consider the effort involved in getting around while it's snowy to be an acceptable price to pay for how pretty it is and for the delicious chill that cuts through the thickest coats. My favorite days are the ones where it's heavily overcast but isn't raining, cool and beautifully bleak.
What I’m doing with my life
I work a LOT these days and I probably should stop coming here until I have more free time.
I’m really good at
Clumsiness and overthinking.
The first things people usually notice about me
My hair. When it's more than about an inch and a half or so, my hair is curly as hell. When I was a kid, I used to hate it, but anymore I've come to accept it and even like the unruly tangles of it. Lately I've been keeping it short, and I think I like that for now.

If your first exposure to me is textual you'll probably notice that I use a lot of parenthetical phrases, which I try with variable success to control.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Authors: Terry Pratchett like wow, Neil Gaiman, George Orwell (I'm not the pretentious Anglophile those three in a row make me sound like), Iain M. Banks, early Poppy Z. Brite, Max Brooks, Sergei Lukyanenko, H.P. Lovecraft (speaking of Anglophiles and parenthetical phrases) is a racist douche but still amazing, Christopher Moore, Neal Stephenson, Charles Stross. I read 2600, but only really get about half of it. I have a bunch of old RPG books but no time the hobby lately. I also have a terrible weakness for Lovecraftian anthologies

I like some comic books- Superheroes mostly bore me (though Watchmen and Powers, which bring non-traditional takes on the concept, are okay), but Sandman, Rat Queens, and especially Hellblazer make me happy. I really wish Fables didn't have such awful, hateful politics. On the web, I like Questionable Content, SMBC, Nimona, Whomp, Awkward Zombie, Achewood, and that sort of thing.

Movies: Horror and comedy mostly. Airplane, Aliens, The Blues Brothers, Buckaroo Banzai, Caddyshack, Casablanca, Clerks, Clue, Dogma, Duck Soup, Election, The Fisher King, Ghostbusters, Grosse Point Blank, Near Dark, Night of the Living Dead, The Princess Bride, Repo Man, The Rocky Horror Picture Show, Saved!, Se7en, Shaun of the Dead, The Take, They Live, The Wicker Man.

TV: Arrested Development, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, I miss Daria, My Name is Earl, The Office, Rome, Scrubs, old Simpsons, Sons of Anarchy, Sopranos, Supernatural. The Venture Brothers is my all-time favorite TV show.

Music: Industrial, synthwave, punk, goth. Angelspit, Apoptygma Berzerk, Ashbury Heights, Assemblage 23, Atom and his Package, Aus-Rotten, Bauhaus, The Birthday Massacre, Black Flag, Cabaret Voltaire, Christian Death , The Circle Jerks, Cocteau Twins, Concrete Blonde, Crass, Creature Feature, The Cruxshadows, The Cure, Dance With the Dead, The Dead Kennedys, The Dead Milkmen, Depeche Mode, Dethklok, The Dresden Dolls, Fear Factory, Fetus, Front 242, Front Line Assembly, Gogol Bordello, Gorilla Biscuits, Helium Vola, Hocico, Jack Off Jill, KMFDM, Mindless Self-Indulgence, The Misfits, Mortiis, Napalm Death, Neuroactive, Nitzer Ebb, Obituary, Occam's Laser, Operation Ivy, Paralysed Age, Ramones, Rasputina, The Sex Pistols, The Sisters of Mercy (if this world has produced a better album than "Floodland" I would really appreciate your telling me), Skinny Puppy, SPK, The Suicide Machines, Sunshine Blind, ¡TchKung!, Test Dept, VNV Nation, Voltaire, Welle:Erdball, Wolfsheim, :wumpscut:, Xymox (Clan or otherwise), Zombie Girl. Anything by Ernst Horn will probably make me happy.

Food: I like a broad range of foods and cuisines. Favorites are Indian and Mexican, though I'm also fond of Chinese and Thai. Cajun food is amazing, but I have a low tolerance for spiciness. That's tragic, though my tolerance is up a bit lately. I really don't like shellfish, but a nice deep-fried cod or catfish with a couple of wedges of lemon to squeeze over it is pretty much the best thing ever. Sushi is happiness distilled into bite-sized pieces. I also love cheeseburgers more than is perhaps rational, and don't care if they're beef or plant matter.
The six things I could never do without
good music, good books, games, a readily available variety of ethnic cuisines, radical politics, and Lil' Bub
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Politics and inconsequential nerd shit, and the interaction of same. And Lil' Bub.
On a typical Friday night I am
Working, because I'm just that cool. Ask me about Saturday though.
You should message me if
You think I'd be interesting to talk to.

I'd really like to meet somebody who likes the same kind of music that I do. I don't have anybody to listen to the Sisters with or gush over the new Youth Code at.

The use of slurs targeted at people who are members of minority classes in the various intersecting oppressions pisses you off and you don't have to check over your shoulders to make sure the room is racially and sexually homogeneous before telling jokes.

You're local- I simply can't do long-distance. Tried it, can't do it.
