What I’m doing with my life
I finished my first video game in October. Been taking a "creative hiatus" since then. In between jobs. Thinking about the recent death of David Bowie (ETA: Prince, Merle Haggard, etc, etc etc... The Great Boomer Musical Deity Die-off) Missing my cat who died in August 2015. Enjoying our new cats who came to us in February. Cursing capitalism and short term gain thinking under my new job.
I’m really good at
Being Devil's Advocate. Sadly, sometimes I play that role too much... ;P

I think I'm decent at giving good massages. I have a knack for finding the knots and using the right pressure, from very firm to soft, depending on the needs of the person. (I've thought about going to school for Massage Therapy). Parenthetical asides. I love them. And use them effusively.

Thinking in the abstract and trying to synthesize information. My friend says he thinks I write well, so there's that. I'm a bit wordy, though, no?
The first things people usually notice about me
*I'm a big guy (to non-euphemistically say it, "I'm fat").
*I have nice eyes. I have great taste in 80s cartoons judging by the comments on my shirts.
*The geek glasses and the goatee and sideburns.
*If in my room, the glowing Cherry MX Blue keyboard with it's clickety-clack. And maybe how messy I am.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books:
VALIS trilogy by PKD (thought that last book sucked), Archaic Revival by Terence McKenna, Tao Te Ching, Dhammapada, End Game by Derrick Jensen, Millenium by Hakim Bey. Nth Man comic book series (if you were a teenage boy growing up dealing with the loss of innocence, reading a comic ostensibly about a CIA ninja assassin and childhood friend turned psychic nemesis and then finding something much deeper about the loss of innocence and friendship really can hit home)... And The Invisibles comics.

Movies: Fight Club (of course), Matrix (the first one, the others sucked), Tron, Blade Runner, 2001, Memento, Monty Python's films, Office Space, Kurosawa's Dreams, Cast Away, Legends of the Fall, Oldboy, Akira, City of God, and lots more I'm sure, if you pried. Those are off the top of my head.

Shows: I don't watch much TV these days. Mr Show, Sealab 2021, Voltron, Transformers, Neon Genesis Evangelion. Yes, I know maybe the last 2 episodes are hit you over the head Existentialism and High School Level philosophy, but it doesn't mean I don't cry any less when I watch the end :P And Serial Experiments Lain. (Apart from that, I'm not a huge anime fan, but I do appreciate the form when I find something unique enough to stand out.) Breaking Bad and Adventure Time are my two newer current faves. I've been told Regular Show is good, as well. I also love the animation style of Drinky Crow.

Music: Autechre, Boards of Canada, Squarepusher, Aphex Twin, Venetian Snares, Faith No More, Dead Kennedys, Dead Can Dance, Dead Prez, Minor Threat, Sex Pistols, The Cure, Nine Inch Nails, Shpongle, The Cars, Cyndi Lauper, Jimi Hendrix, Yellow Magic Orchestra, Parliament/Funkadelic, Herbie Hancock, John Coltrane, Beastie Boys, Souls of Mischief, Hieroglyphics, EC8OR, Pizzicato Five, X-Dream, Infected Mushroom, Mogwai, Godspeed You Black Emperor, If These Trees Could Talk, and on and on and on...

Genrewise, it'd be be primarily IDM, Breakcore, Jazz, Funk, political, abstract and/or old school Hip-Hop, Psy-Trance/Goa and Post-Rock.

Food: PIZZA (P-I-ZZ-A... Gimme PIZZA! +1 if you get that reference)! I don't eat it as much as I used to, but who doesn't love it? Mexican food is always awesome. I like chicken in it's various forms. I respect and honor vegetarians and vegans and healthy eaters, I wish I could be one. I have a hard time being one, however. I'm trying to be open minded about food these days and have come a long way from my childhood menu of "meat and taters".
The six things I could never do without
1) My Cat
2) Beautiful Music
3) A warm comfy blanket and naps
4) Sunny days!!! it's really essential (I have mild SAD, I think)
5) Laughter and humor.
6) Love - in whatever form - romantic, from friends, from pets.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Depends on the season. It can be Politics (Bourgeoisie - up against the wall!) to Music (who's got a new album coming?) to game design (what mechanic can I use for this idea?) to philosophy (what is mind? what the hell are we in the grand scheme of things?) and whatever else trips my trigger.

(well, I guess I sort of covered this in my "about me" as well)
On a typical Friday night I am
Playing board games w/friends (usuually my 2 roomies: lemniscateheart and sophygurl; and throw in cadbunny and occasionally other non-OKC peepz); maybe playing WoW (just started it up again after a year hiatus), designing board games, making music. It all depends.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm lonely but shy, so this makes for an awkward combo right now! I'm not sure what I'm actually looking for. I'd like to just cuddle, but I don't want a full relationship, but I need to have *some* connection. I'm a bit afraid of getting into any relationship because I kind of want to focus on myself and my creative side right now. Meh. So that's that.
You should message me if
I seem half-way interesting and you think we'd get along.
