Feisty intellectual looking to meet a like-minded person to have fun with and stimulate my senses.If you message me with some perverted statement or the typical "hello", do not anticipate a response, your message will most likely be deleted. Not interested in wasting anyone's time or anyone wasting mine. Not interested in surface conversation so if ya have nothing else to offer, keep moving along. I'm not here for casual sex, so if that is your motive, find it elsewhere. I enjoy witty, creative types who think outside the norm and can bring new stimuli to my realm. I am ready to share my life with someone who will appreciate me and my idiosyncrasies and join me in my adventures.
It's been a bit since I have read any good books but Bukowski & Haruki Murakami are two of my all time favorites. My music favorites list is so vast in terms of genre. I can't say I like only one specific type of music but I definitely have a preference and its often driven by sound then lyrics, sometimes the opposite. To name a few and in no particular order: Pixies, Bjork, Throwing Muses, Legendary Pink Dots, Fugazi, Massive Attack, Tricky, Lamb, Sonic Youth, Nirvana, Rasputina, Dead Can Dance, Portishead, Elliot Smith, Mary's Danish, Baxter, Boards of Canada, Vast, Blonde Redhead, Lush, The Cure, Neena Trottier, Sneaker Pimps, PJ Harvey, Cocteau Twins, The Sundays, Duran Duran, Air, Hooverphonic, Faith and the Muse, 7 Seconds, Dead Kennedy's, Minor Threat, Vast, She Wants Revenge,Ellie Goulding, Deftones, Deadmau5, St Vincent, Sleep Party People, random dubstep remixes (yes I admit it), The Breeders,The Joy Formidable, Tori Amos.. the list goes on and is always growing.
I prefer independent and foreign films. I can easily admit that I despise the "American Comedy", they most often do nothing for me. I like to walk away from a movie feeling something, emotions, invoked thoughts and curiosities expanded. A few of my favorites are Donnie Darko, Y Tu Mamma Tambien, The Motorcycle Diaries, The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo (original 2009 Denmark), & Once.
"I'm sorry, but I don't want to be an emperor. That's not my business. I don't want to rule or conquer anyone. I should like to help everyone, if possible, Jew, gentile, black man, white. We all want to help one another. Human beings are like that. We want to live by each other's happiness — not by each other's misery. We don't want to hate and despise one another.
In this world there is room for everyone. And the good earth is rich and can provide for everyone. The way of life can be free and beautiful, but we have lost the way. Greed has poisoned men's souls, has barricaded the world with hate, has goose-stepped us into misery and bloodshed. We have developed speed, but we have shut ourselves in. Machinery that gives abundance has left us in want. Our knowledge has made us cynical. Our cleverness, hard and unkind. We think too much and feel too little. More than machinery we need humanity. More than cleverness we need kindness and gentleness. Without these qualities, life will be violent and all will be lost.
The aeroplane and the radio have brought us closer together. The very nature of these inventions cries out for the goodness in men, cries out for universal brotherhood, for the unity of us all. Even now my voice is reaching millions throughout the world — millions of despairing men, women and little children — victims of a system that makes men torture and imprison innocent people. To those who can hear me, I say — do not despair. The misery that is now upon us is but the passing of greed — the bitterness of men who fear the way of human progress. The hate of men will pass, and dictators die, and the power they took from the people will return to the people and so long as men die, liberty will never perish.
Soldiers! Don't give yourselves to brutes — men who despise you — enslave you — who regiment your lives — tell you what to do — what to think or what to feel! Who drill you, diet you, treat you like cattle, use you as cannon fodder. Don't give yourselves to these unnatural men — machine men with machine minds and machine hearts! You are not machines! You are not cattle! You are men! You have the love of humanity in your hearts. You don't hate! Only the unloved hate — the unloved and the unnatural!
Soldiers! Don't fight for slavery! Fight for liberty! In the 17th Chapter of St. Luke it is written: "the Kingdom of God is within man" — not one man nor a group of men, but in all men! In you! You, the people have the power — the power to create machines. The power to create happiness! You, the people, have the power to make this life free and beautiful, to make this life a wonderful adventure.
Then, in the name of democracy, let us use that power! Let us all unite! Let us fight for a new world, a decent world that will give men a chance to work, that will give youth the future and old age a security. By the promise of these things, brutes have risen to power, but they lie! They do not fulfill their promise; they never will. Dictators free themselves, but they enslave the people! Now, let us fight to fulfill that promise! Let us fight to free the world, to do away with national barriers, to do away with greed, with hate and intolerance. Let us fight for a world of reason, a world where science and progress will lead to all men's happiness.
Soldiers! In the name of democracy, let us all unite!"
