I'm still bitter about the 17th Amendment.
I was once distracted from a burlesque show because of how bad the lighting was. No, you don't want to use cool colors for that part! As you may be able to tell, I get passionate about things.
Side projects at the moment are becoming a better swing dancer, getting better at front-end development, and learning category theory.
Fiction: Jacques The Fatalist, for some post-modernist enlightenment-era brilliance. Max Gladstone is brilliant and very philosophical in his worldbuilding. I see way too much of my past self in Kvothe.
Fanfiction: HPMOR and The Last Ringbearer.
Movies: Moonrise Kingdom, the Swedish version of The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, The Avengers, Black Widow 1: The Winter Soldier. This is a sample that approximates the mean?
Shows: West Wing, Firefly, Black Books, Scandal.
Music: Jay Psaros, Sassafrass, Amy Kucharik, any gospel song I can Lindy to.
I get annoyed at modern rad fems for being insufficiently Marxist, modern Marxists for being insufficiently materialist, liberals for being excessively realist, and 17th amendment supporters without good defenses.
I'm looking for a mind at work.
I'm quite happy meeting people I can dance with and kiss like we never have to do anything else.
It's complicated (I like history and politics too much for anything to be simple, and I welcome messages on this), but I identify as an intersectional feminist.
More practically, I'm interested in storytelling, and narrative, and if you ever flirted with the idea of being an English major I'd love someone to watch The Sopranos or The Wire with.
I'm dating multiple people independently, and I'm looking for someone that meshes well with. It is really important to me that I be open about the existence of those relationships, though I will respect your privacy if you ask for it and will avoid talking about my partners too much (even though they're amazing). Most of my relationships at the moment are long-distance, so I'd ideally like to date someone a little closer to home.
