My self-summary
Not into mainstream culture at all, much less gay stuff. I'm into cheap living, traveling, film, literature, art, music, cooking.....just don't ask me about tv or any of that crap. I'm pretty committed to being as anti-capitalist as possible, and have a generally no-bullshit kind of attitude. I'm a good listener and have total loyalty to my friends. I guess I have a tough exterior but I'm really sensitive and caring once you get past that. People are always more important than things, and fun is always more important than prestige.
What I’m doing with my life
Living, learning, exploring, trying to change the system. Reading and studying voraciously and helping friends around the country set up spaces of withdrawal from capitalist logic. Maybe having more fun than I should; making music and drawing on things.
I’m really good at
cooking, adventuring, traveling, making people laugh, looking shady, dialectical materialism.
The first things people usually notice about me
"Have you noticed how, after western neoliberal democratic capitalism has outsourced both manufacturing and torture, they have outsourced our love lives to dating sites like this one? In order to continue to reproduce itself, capitalism must not only erase all cultural bonds (such as the ways gay men formerly met one another, pre-internet) and symbolic meaning, it must commodify the meaning itself....hence the ads that border this website. Under capitalism, love and sex become commodities, and we are merely customers here. Due to the insidious hold of capitalist ideology, the vast majority of people on a site like OKCupid have succumbed either to a race for corporate accomplishment and the thoughtless embracing of its supplemental consumer (non)culture (a valorization of vapid cultural artefacts such as expensive fashion and Lady Gaga), or a retreat into vague New Age obscurantism (yoga, crystals, and weak-minded pseudo-Eastern philosophy). The emergence of dating sites like OKCupid is no accident and nor is it the end result of a techno-utopian teleology--capitalist ideology must remove the irrational and spontaneous aspects from the process of searching for love in order to both account for the dissolution of cultural and personal bonds and in order to create good capitalist "subjects". Another example of what Althusser called 'interpellation'. But are we even able to call a good capitalist a 'subject'? Does the democratic capitalist 'subject' comprise an actual 'political subject' or merely one to whom rules and injunctions are subjected? For that we must turn back to Althusser....."

....and i guess my eyes and beefy chest and all that stuff, too.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
cormac mcarthy, roberto bolano, slavoj zizek, alain badiou, jorge luis borges, julio cortazar, lars von trier, michel haneke, stuff like that.

i dig punk, old country and blues, some noise stuff and weird postwar classical music. ever hear of giacinto scelsi or luigi nono?

Food is whatever tasty stuff me and my friends can concoct out of a dumpster, or some really good asian or mexican food.

You should message me if
you're sick of shallow culture, want to hang out with someone who's real and a little crazy, and you like to go from the extremes of wild fun to the quiet of reading a book in bed.... you have a refined sense of don't take life seriously at all, but you ascribe to a notion of universal ethics that you take deadly serious.
