My self-summary
Fine Arts degreed, subsisting on odd jobs.
Curious, analytical, pragmatic but soft edged. Well-read but broad-focused.
Well-intentioned loner: randomly, selectively social.
Laid back, friendly, affectionate smart-ass.
Feeling simultaneously inferior and superior to everyone I meet.

I am DIY, iconoclastic, and voided warranty
What I’m doing with my life
Trying to live more intentionally.

Chasing stomach butterflies

Tanning only the left side of my body.

Learning all I can about your strange land,
Embracing cynicism, fighting pessimism,
Daydreaming about patterns, loops, coincidence,
Learning to cook and be thrifty, to minimize wastefulness,
Watching things grow,
Writing music, drawing diagrams,
Drumming, Didjing, Vocalizing, recording it,
Building a new network of friends and acquaintances,
Planning my next break from my old pathology.
I’m really good at
Keeping promises.

Drawing, drumming, dancing,
Using every utensil in my kitchen when trying to cook one thing,
Misplacing things, forgetting to finish my senten
Sounding like an expert on topics I know little about,
Listening and offering alternative perspective to your dilemmas,
Making up new words to songs on the radio,
Finding the sources of obscure quotes and samples found in collage music.
The first things people usually notice about me
Probably that I'm talking to myself or humming a tune.

Usually I feel invisible, but then I'll have some kind of awkward interaction with a stranger and realize it's not true.

I'm a bit of a daydreamer and the here-and-now people often mistake me for a here-and-now person. Awkward moment ensues.

You tell me, what is it about me that has captured your interest thus far?
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: Philosophy, non-fiction, self-help, education, aesthetics, sketchbooks, diatribes found lying in the street.
I like some fiction, but fantasy not so much: I read to investigate reality, not to escape it.

Music: Cacophonous synthetics, french-fried samples, deeply layered instrumental textures. Rhythm heavy bombast, genre-defiant novelty. Organic electronics, eclectic grooves and rootsy guitar driven jams. Psychedelic freakouts. Introspective lyrics. Music for loners and freaks. No whining, no bling-bling, no clear-channel favorites.

Movies: Existential drama, audience confrontation, quirky indie comedy, cult animation, seminal classics.

Food: I eat it. Make it extra spicy, por favor.
The six things I could never do without
Authenticity.
Condoms.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Travel.

Sex, what's for dinner, and where I left my keys.

how comfort is the enemy of self improvement, how getting what we want sometimes cuts us off from greater happiness, and how the pursuit of happiness fails without a concurrent pursuit of discipline.

How under-appreciated my penis is.

Why doesn't anybody put "condoms" in their 6 things?
On a typical Friday night I am
Recovering from a typical Thursday night.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm kinda shy in real life.
You should message me if
You're already touching yourself.

You just rolled your eyes.

You need some hallucination-inducing oral sex.

You need someone to referee your threesome.

Now you rolled your eyes.

You want me to read your favorite book to you.

I'm not for you but you think I should meet your girl friend.

You have a guy friend you think I'd be friends with.

You'd like to be my tour guide and show me around your home town.

Or, for any reason really. I like awkward first dates, meandering conversation, and activities out in the world. Let's go biking or bowling or something. I'm looking to add good people to my life, in whatever way those people choose to be involved.
