NOTE: most of this profile was written a couple years ago, I need to redo it. Currently (as of 12/12) I am dating a wonderful man, but we are non-exclusive on occasion.
I'm about a Kinsey 4 or 4.5.
I am a writer, artist, performer. I am learning and growing. I like weird.
My most recent job was acting and training at a haunted house. Fun to be a monster for the public! Make 'em scream, or make 'em laugh.
Life constantly provides opportunities for me to grow and learn.
Burning Man is an annual event for me, and colors my worldview rather a lot; probably even more than I suspect. There is a man I love whom I only ever get to see there and then. Anyone new in my life needs to be aware that this is not an optional relationship I will end because I meet someone new.
None of these things define me.
I am endearing, geeky, and serene
I also enjoy the less literal conversation: my mind connects with yours through the medium of story, film, music, dance. My mind connects with that of Douglas Adams, S.I. Hayakawa, Tennessee Williams, Robert A. Wilson, Miyazaki, Lynch, Alan Moore and mad, mad John the Revelator. And, if matter and energy are both phases of Information, in the universe can be seen as a giant computer (or pick your simile), then every breath, movement and thought is, in effect, part of a grand conversation among parts of an infinite whole.
I paint -- mostly non-representational abstract art. I perform in local theater. I write poetry, horror and fantasy shorts, novels and observational essays. I have a book published -- Chunnel Surfer II. I create experimental music or noise. I enjoy photography -- mostly urban decay.
I really want to go sailing sometime. I haven't been on the water since I got out of the Navy.
I want to go to a gay bar. I had a nice hole-in-the-wall place I liked in San Diego -- not so much here.
Je Parle Francais un peu, sed latina lingua mortu mea est (crap, I know that's wrong, my Latin is so rusty.)
No, strike that.
Everyone says that. If it's true, then neither is really noticeable, now is it?
I really have no true answer here. If you know me, considering letting me know what you notice first.
a) Fantasy, horror, sci-fi, juvenile adventure. Preferably all together, like some Bradbury and King and most all L'Engle and Bellairs. Surrealist/Spec-fic/magical realism books make me wet: Tom Robbins, Chuck Palahniuk, Douglas Adams, Vonnegut, Gaiman and their ilk (I know I'm forgetting some). I'm a big fan of comics and graphic novels: Swamp Thing, Sandman, Hellblazer, anything by Neil Gaiman or Alan Moore.-----
b) Almost the same as books. I like multi-layered, surreal and visually stimulating film. Miyazaki makes some lovely examples of this. Also, Rocky Horror, Silent Hill, Pan's Labyrinth, regular Labyrinth, and on and on. Currently in my lineup are Gozu, Naked Lunch, American Werewolf in London, Altered States, The Onion Movie, Lust in the Dust, Andy Warhol's Flesh, and Velvet Goldmine as an example of my eclectic tastes. Oh! And zombie movies. Love Zombies. Even have the tabletop game.
c) I like multi-layered music. A lot of classic rock fits the bill. Jethro Tull and Pink Floyd have some exceptional examples. They Might Be Giants, The Beatles, movie soundtracks, show tunes: you name it. Recently re-discovered Manu Chao. Lovely.
d) Varied texture, flavors and colors. Mexican, Japanese, Thai, Indian, Cali Cuisine have exceptional examples.
e) Video games: Silent Hill 1-4 (and now Origins), any horror/survival genre that creates a strong mood and has an interesting story. Non-video games: Munchkin, D&D, Zombies!, Pirates, Knights of the Dinner Table: Hack, World of Darkness games, that one card game my family plays all the time but they have to remind me of the rules every time!
Not necessarily in that order.
