are you a little offbeat but not fatally so? know a bit about all kinds of indie, punk, electronic, and other non-mainstream music? do you do detached third party observer pretty well? what's your opinion on llamas? can you syncopate the rhythm generators but appreciate a well played guitar? you've noticed that poetry isn't always words, and art might not be limited to your eyes. snow covered sand with the sound of waves across a desolate beach, listening to the cocteau twins on a misty day. wondering if this film your watching is just a collection of non-sequiturs but loving it none the less? you're on the right track.
do you not know what the hell i am talking about at all, but wouldn't be adverse to finding out what this strange babble is? that's cool too, i don't have a mold i'm trying to fit any one in, just want to represent a little of where i'm coming from.
are you rigid, very-opinionated, aggressive and selfish? the next profile is just a back button away. shoo! that's the only thing that outright irritates me. (and friendly advice, the louder the voice, the less worthwhile said)
things that i'd rather not deal with: country music, hearing the word "yo" more than 15 times an hour, militant idealogues, disease, the police, conspiracy theorists, l. ron hubbard, chiropractors, barry mannilow, tassels of any kind, hiphop that isn't hard enough to step to me, sequins, blood, theives, dr. phil or oprah as a religion, musicals.
i'm more of a surreal guy than that REAL GUY i keep reading about, but i guess beyond the silliness and the boredom with the things we're supposed to like and think about and all that, i'm a very warm hearted, good natured guy, who relishes peace of mind and a good hefeweizen here and there.
things i do: play guitar, write electronic music, occasionally write a odd poem or two, play videogames, go out once in a blue moon, work at a small company as the IT dept, muddle about with my phone, make snarky comments, goof about, meander, and be
here's a dumb poem i wrote for another profile in the long forgotten age where friendster and livejournal still roamed the young earth. :) still, i like it.
i'm walking on the wilde side
somewhere voltaire wouldn't dare
as if bukowski fell from heaven
landing square on baudelaire
(yeah, bukowski and heaven don't rhyme, but it wouldn't be right if they did, would it?)
i'm alright looking i suppose, some people find me attractive, other people, well, they don't matter much. :)

“Like most qualities, cuteness is delineated by what it isn't. Most people aren't cute at all, or if so they quickly outgrow their cuteness ... Elegance, grace, delicacy, beauty, and a lack of self-consciousness: a creature who knows he is cute soon isn't.”
? William S. Burroughs, The Cat Inside
Oh, and no worries if I ask for a picture.. I want to see you wearing EXTRA clothing. To hell with nudes. Or just take pics of the clothes lol. That's my sense of humor.. :)
I'm seeing here on Pof just how closely related needy is to demanding. A profile that is merely a list of things someone musn't be? Well, theres some pretty faces riding on some ugly people. Wow, good luck with that. At least they wont be reproducing. Really, it's about as attractive as a letter from the irs. I for one am not sitting here looking for the most stringent list of regulations to fail to live up to and call it dating. The only relationship i want with some one like that is one of increasing distance..you'RE correct to think there isn't something wrong with you, EVERYTHING IS WRONG ABOUT YOU. Sad.
I work at retail store fixing computers as a second job. Tonight I could've cried for the crush I had on a customer that came in. She wasn't done up or too beautiful, but just right from smiling, to being cute, and maybe just a little clumsy. Someone somewhere must have written an indie pop song about her. My brain went to mush, my heart was throbbing in my throat.. and she was gone. #sadface. Hadn't felt anything like that in an age. What about you?
To be fair, it was all visual and for all I know maybe she maims kittens for fun. I dunno. Would have loved to find out but the situation was all wrong.. le sigh
Whereby (yes I did just effin' start a sentence with whereby. Get over it ;) ) this profile might seem to be devolving into chaos, a: this is not one sitting but a mosaic of a few times I've edited or added to this. Why be one dimensional? My personality doesn't fit in a blurb. I'm not a meme, nor am i looking for one. B: those afraid of thinking outside of the box will just say wtf, maybe smirk a bit, and walk away, which is perfect. Bye!

Update: what I REALLY REALLY want is one word messages at 4am that say "fake". Really, I 3 trolls. Good luck with that. Sorry your daddy didn't love you, or whatever drives your need for superiority. I'm just a person. That's it. Peace.
