About Me


Take myself less seriously and be more humble


I was born at the stroke of midnight, or so says the person that people, who common knowledge says define what the dictionary, what the people say is the ultimate definition of the building blocks of modern communication, says is knowledge, say is my mom. Then I was slapped and I cried. Then I was put in a machine where i pooped my white hotpants, and then i slept. Then I grew up and found myself sitting on my bed very bored, filling a very important section of my profile on CS with disdain, the rebel that i am

Extremely active, a little shy, a little cold, love conversations that use the mind, adventurous, and a generally nice guy.

I'm the king of awkward.

I have a very good sense of humour


Live and let live. We all consume too much ; the world cannot sustain our lifestyle. Plus the world, lately, seems to be dominated by assholes. But we all die in the end and nothing means anything, so it's all okay.

Music, Movies, and Books

I love Kurasawa, Miyazaki, Mamuro Oshii, Linklater, DH Lawrence, Heller and tons of other stuff that I mostly cannot recall at times like this.
I frown on books like the monk who sold his ferrari, which I just tried to read.
If Douglas Adams was Patricia Adams, and 25 years old, I would devote myself to being her slave.

Everybody - watch hedwig and the angry inch
