My self-summary
So I've become fond of the 5 favorites trope; this is it in profile form.

5 Most Interesting Things About Me:
5. Forever learner, particularly film and pop culture-obsessed
4. Happiest directing a show (happiest if its on a stage)
3. Sapiosexual as fuck (the best conversations are sex of a sort)
2. Fascinated by adult film (made 2 shows on the subject, one centering on the women who make such work)
1. Learned to dance watching Michael Jackson music videos (still a fan)

5 Least Interesting Things About Me:

Six things I could never do without
1. The Internet: it's basically an extension of my brain at this point.

2. A good, physical book: no matter where the technology goes, I'll be alright with it, as I currently read PDFs and text files on my computer and listen to books on tape, and I could see myself getting a Kindle or Nook sometime soon for the convenience of travel (EDIT: Received a Kindle Fire for Christmas; so far have used it for scripts more often than books). If, however, we end up living in a world where only virtual copies are sold, I'll be the stubborn old guy with a house full of books and a printing press.

3. Good friends: I need them. I have always been lucky enough to have a few, and I gained two whole fraternal organizations full of them in college. They are my true family, and no person or situation could make me give them up. I should add that I'm always looking for more, and am just as willing and eager to hook up with awesome people for adventures as I am to hook up with awesome people for romantic relationships. These things are not mutually exclusive, by the way.

4. Tolerance: while I generally follow Voltaire's position of advocating strongly someone else's right to advocate against everything I believe in, I am heavily intolerant of a closed mind. The lack of a willingness to at least learn more about things you know nothing about is an instant dealbreaker for any sort of close relationship.

5. Diversity: I can't stand being in a place where people all look the same, act the same, and have the same interests; it's boring. When I find such a group I generally try very hard to introduce them to new people and new things.

6. Hedonism: "the doctrine that pleasure or happiness is the sole or chief good in life", according to Merriam-Webster. I strongly believe that one should work hard to make every living moment as happy and fulfilling as possible--and while some can achieve that happiness and fulfillment through the proverbial wine, women, and song, they don't necessarily do so all the time. (I also take pleasure in reading, dancing, and seeing a good show.) In fact, there are an infinity of personal pleasures to choose from, and almost every human being, whether they are aware of it or not, has their own personal cocktail. As far as I'm concerned, as long as it doesn't interfere with the happiness of others, an individual's personal pursuit is up to them--but they shouldn't resist the pursuit. To quote a Noel Coward play, "life is for living", and it's the only thing we know for certain is promised to us.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
5. Sex, sexuality, and relationships
4. The global political clusterfuck
3. Fighting the patriarchy
2. Random shit related to things I've seen and read
1. Things I shouldn't worry about
On a typical Friday night I am
Exploring the city, finding new places to love. You will probably find me around midnight at the Plaza Theatre, preparing to enjoy Lips Down on Dixie's impressive Rocky Horror shadowcast. It's possible I might be one of them in the near future.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I am most turned on by androgyny, and most turned off by cis men (again the dysphoria).
You should message me if
"Life's too short babe, time is flying--I'm looking for baggage that goes with mine."

If you actually read all that and are still somewhat interested, you should.
The two of us
