My self-summary
This profile is deprecated! Find the new me here:
What I’m doing with my life
Throwing it away. Just like you.

Seriously, though: computational neuroscience at the faculty of philosophy.
I’m really good at
Verifiably? The game SET.

It has also been said that my back rubs are pretty good.
The first things people usually notice about me
Sure, sure. First impressions are important. They are also subjective as all fuck, resulting in this gem of circular logic: if I am your type, you will find me attractive. If not, not so much.

Also, I have long hair. Circular it is not, but all the more obvious.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books, fiction: Levin, Orwell, Greene, Hemingway, Tolkien, Ruiz Zafón, Gibson, Golding, Dahl, Patrick O'Brian (I have no shame), Gaiman, Murakami, G. R. R. Martin, Lev Grossman, Charles Stross (he writes what I would aspire to writing -- he does it really well, so I do not need to), Dennis Lehane (better a good thriller than bad literature), W. G. Sebald, Roberto Bolaño (if in moderation) and last but not least Slauerhoff (not in moderation).

Books, poetry: Bloem, Bukowski, Marsman, Slauerhoff again.

Movies: The Matrix, American Beauty, Solaris, Donnie Darko, Million Dollar Hotel, Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas, No Way Out, Control, Fight Club, Gattaca, Festen, Syriana, Sunshine, Black Swan.

Oh, don't get me started.
In particular order: the Cure, Nine Inch Nails, Oceansize, Tool, Deftones, Katatonia, Killing Joke, Marillion (with Fish), ISIS (the Los Angeles post-metal one), Curve, Underworld, Soundgarden, Faith No More, Piano Magic, Depeche Mode, Massive Attack, Type O Negative, PJ Harvey and quite a few more.
I love music. I consider it the shortcut to my heart.
Current fads: Drone and doom-jazz. Think Kilimanjaro Darkjazz Ensemble and their drone-incarnation Mount Fuji Doomjazz Corporation, Sunn O))), Bohren & der Club of Gore. Perhaps ISIS also counts.

TV shows: Californication, Game of Thones (the books are cool, and the TV series is an awesome rendition), Firefly, Deadwood, and House. Recently discovered The Wire and loved it.

Food: Hmmm, food. Let me cook for you! I have references.

I limit the amount of meat I eat, and probably should (yet too rarely do) limit myself to 'biologically raised' animal flesh. Still, militant dietism of any kind makes me sad.
Insisting on lots of meat makes you environmentally and morally short-sighted.
Being strict in the tenets of some kind of vegetarianism makes you dogmatic. Where do you draw the line? Why is it OK to keep cows in slavery for their milk but not for their flesh, and why do you avoid eating cows but not nematodes?
Finally, in my culinary experience, vegans make for unpleasant culinary contortions if one wants to eat a varied, healthy, supplement-less, tasty diet. Which I do.
Six things I could never do without
Garlic and games (power-, board-, strategy-, - of Thrones, and - Theory).
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Models of complex adaptive systems. My delightful girlfriend AngeDePerdition (well, she used to be on here; it's how we met, and it works excellently).
On a typical Friday night I am
Knackered from a week of working, and doing something comparatively mindless.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
The two of us
