( 7/ 2016) Hello - I am not a typical Virgo & an amateur writer of weird fiction and Cthuhlu Mythos short stories. Established / starving artist & published author.... as i have seen my first mainstream published work of several of my short stories & drawings in the book "Asylum of the Ancient Ones" published by Black Bed Sheet Books in spring 2016. I am very enthusiastic on any thing H.P. Lovecraft or Cthuhlu Mythos related.I note Clive Barker & Neil Gaiman as also being very influential.I recognize Aleister Crowley as being the father of magickal interpretation, and highly value every thing I have ever read written by the man ( 1875 - 1947). All my life ,I have had some type of severe attraction to the supernatural, paranormal, mystical side of things & a strange attraction to the idea of conspiracy theories and cosmic consciousness, & the thought of civilized life on other planets intrigues me. I am a chain smoker of cigarillos, & can never get enough of drinking black iced coffee all day long & into the night, and besides that, I do often enjoy the finest Tea that I can get my hands on mostly specialty teas and flavored herbal tea - I do not use drugs or drink alcohol at all ever I have 6 hermit crabs which live in an aquarium in my apartment with me. ( Blue Zebra, Sal - Rad , Beenus, Droner, Salsbury, & Roboticon) I like the idea of having small animals in aquariums. I adore cats but do not own one. I want one. i terribly despise dogs of any type & find them completely loathsome and barbaric. I humbly take part in volunteer & humanitarian work on a regular basis, as I usually tend to drift from job to job.....currently it is my goal to attend the local technical college to advance my career opportunities where I may focus on graphic arts, pursue my writing interests, or even welding or wood working. I have been obsessing on what ever type of social media I involve myself in at this point, and find face book extremely entertaining and amusing - it is not uncommon for me to spend hours on face book reading articles, watching videos, and talking to my friends casually. I LOVE s*xy cosplay but i think it's foolish for men to do cosplay. I indulge in any thing CONAN related with the likes of Robert E. Howard. I have reached a point where i have decided to totally become vegan. After dining on all the fine and delicious dishes my vegan friends have prepared for me when they invite me for dinner, I feel it is the healthy choice since my current eating habits have become unfulfilling. I WILL NOT how ever once i become vegan, force my ideas and beliefs about alternative foods, and nutritional habits on others, like some kind of cult member. I consider myself an introvert by nature, but enjoy meeting new people, though I choose to surround myself with very few, except those very special to me. I enjoy shopping for clothes , and unusual trinkets, oddities, or strange antiquities to fill my apartment with, but you should know that over all, material possessions mean very little to me wholly at once. Gardening, and taking care of plants is a past time I cherish, and I have worked in several different greenhouses in my life. Caring for Plant Life is very rewarding. I can not stand the city I live in currently, it is a vulgar wasteland , spread out like some plague upon the land. Little is offered in the way of entertainment, and no culture to speak of in the least. I have not met many people in the last 2 years I have had much in common with, where the friends I have made , I value very much so. Lately, I have found it interesting to study books on psychology & mathematics right now. Some times I attend an open mic night at a local book shop where I read my poetry, where my friend also accompanies me there, where we enjoy other local poets also reading. I have never been one to frequent on line dating sites, how ever my friend was obsessed with them, and after all, I felt I needed to see what all the hype was about in the long run.My past times aside for writing are as follows - Photography has always been very much a hobby that I am talented with - mostly black & white decrepit landscapes, abandoned buildings, waterfalls, GRAVEYARDS, and statues in a graveyard like Angels , twisted trees that seem eerie or abnormal, live bands on stage, and I like photographing animals as well. Drawing is creative expression for me. Mostly in black & white / ink. Some times with scratches of colored pencil. & water colors. My favorite artists are Todd McFarlane, Simon Bisley, Julie Bell, Boris Vallejo, Sam Keith, Jae Lee, Stephen Platt, Greg Capulluo, & Rodney Matthews. I enjoy fantasy & sci-fi art, but also darker & more morbid work from the likes of Hieronymus Bosch, H.R. Giger, Salvador Dali, as well as that I consider Clive Barker's most simplistic paintings and sketches finally unbelievable - the guy is an artistic genius. With films, I choose to indulge in mostly psychological thrillers, film noir, occult dramas, I am interested in Japanese Anime, and most forms modern American animation besides all the hokey Disney / Saturday morning type cartoons. and all types of more artistic avant garde films and movies. David Lynch is ( it takes some one with a serious imagination to fully understand what he is doing with a script & camera) my favorite film maker of all time, & any thing Twin Peaks is a must !!! Quentin Tarentino, M. Night Shyamalan, Dino De Laurentis, and Sam Raimi, Tim Burton, Ridley Scott, & Francis Ford Coppola are a few others who I will name here who's work I enjoy immensely. I will admit that I find any type of severe graphic violence in film / movies completely unacceptable, and that am repulsed by blood and gore in the cinematic arts, all though, I do recognize that the "Hellraiser" series has kept my interest through the years, that may be the one exception. I will add that I NEVER watch television at all, as I find the programs on television these days rather disturbing, vulgar and distasteful all together - not even to watch the local news, with is more of the same.... just horror stories. I get my news from the BBC radio, and listening to talk radio programs is much more fascinating and less absurd than any thing televison has to offer some one like myself, ha ha ah (no kidding). I like riding my 10 speed mountain bike here & there when the weather is pleasant.It is not uncommon for me to ride from one side of town, to the next - and back again. Video games are amusing at times. To me, I feel the Elder Scrolls Skyrim , & Fallout New Vegas are enjoyable right now, and any type of fantasy / sword & sorcery RPGs, but as time goes by I find myself playing less and less, where i focus on my art & writing more, to have some thing to show for time invested. I have always taken pleasure in simple games, like Dice, and Dominoes with a friend or even up to four other people playing. The idea of playing scratch off Lottery cards is starting to become more & more appealing to me right now as well.( gambling, YES !!!) Using THOTH Tarot cards & Donald Tyson's Necronomicon Tarot is quite valuable to me, and has been for years and years.Music has ALWAYS been a big part of my life. Glenn Danzig has always hands down been my favorite singer/song writer/ performer in my life since I've discovered his music at age 14. i had the privilege of seeing him in concert again a few months ago. The Dwarves, & the Hookers (seen 'em twice now, which is a shock because they book gigs, and just never show up half the time.) are definitely my two most favorite bands since I was a teen. I have never been to a Dwarves show, for some reason . Not sure why. Maybe it's because they are not welcome in most venues after the first time they play there. HA !!! but I would love to get a guitar smashed over my head, or kicked in the face by Blag any day. I'm still young. there is still time for that in the future. (ha ha ???) I've put my time in throwing myself around in mosh pits & riding a skate board (yeah for transportation) even in my youth, died my hair, yep done that as well. SO I see a lot of people on this sight flashing their piercings - yeah, yeah, I've got 8 piercings - Use your imagination. Tattoos, yep that too just a few. (and I plan on getting more soon) Headbangers are called headbangers for a reason , missy, and punk is not just a form of music, or a fashion trend but a lifestyle. Have you ever seen the film "SUBURBIA" ? if not check it out. Then watch "Tougher than Leather".... for a laugh, watch "Spinal Tap" (just kidding) Mostly - 90's metal / old school punk/ / 1990's underground scene garage rock & roll / all types of experimental music/ stoner rock / stoner metal / doom/ psychedelic desert rock / i am very picky about rap / & late 70's - late 90's indie type rock bands are the kinds of tunes I listen to mostly. I also realize that most mainstream American metal is garbage, and take more pleasure in punk and metal bands from overseas (Japan, France, the UK, ect.) & you should also take into consideration that for most folks taking a look at my list of bands here mostly is my faves I've been listening to on and off all MY LIFE, narrow minded individuals may take a look and say to themselves "Wow, this guy has no taste in music." I can assure you I have diverse tastes and my record collection is as big as as a Whale - so there. So, I suppose, all in all, I am on this site seeking a like minded woman who has the time & Patience to get to know me and what makes me tick, because I'm not really sure myself , ha ha.... People with similar interests, weird or unique individuals who are disappointed by the norm (.) girls or women that find any of this written here interesting in any way should also take into consideration that if you have an Astrological sign that aligns with mine that should be a plus. Unusual sense of fashion ,another PLUS Gothic Fashion another PLUS, but don't forget that the Goths were a race of people , not fashion trend setters, (thought I still find the style irresistible) Why, I ask should one man with an intricate system of beliefs and an array of diverse personality traits be DOOMED to wander through life on this destitute and decrepit dying planet with no sole companion??? THAT is the million dollar question. This may be a cry for help - at this point I am quickly losing interest in the world around me and the human race as a species. I have recently made the acquaintance once again of a man I have had not seen for nearly 20 years, and you should know that he has begun to initiate me into the ideas that there is more to life than pursuing the mundane goings on of day to day life, ( PHONES ARE TURNING PEOPLE INTO ZOMBIES & SLAVE OF SOCIETY, and, for that matter , destroying today's youth) as well as the monotonous life style that is only available to the height of the five basic senses, so all in all i have realized there are things in this life that even now I have yet to behold or comprehend.... & it is feasible for me to recognize at this point that I am ready , willing, & able to journey the rest of my time on this planet - my life alone if that is the hand FATE has dealt me. So be it then. I do not believe there is a such a thing as "soul mates" or that there is some one out there for every one. how ever , I do embrace the idea there are special people here & there, and I have met many of them. i am convinced there is a force at work of re incarnation at all times.It is interesting to speculate.... Trial & error. Trial & error - there must be some girls / women who will really get this point of view, or long to understand it's definitive over all meaning. If you have had the patience to read ALL of this , then cheers to you. For a different take on art, film, music & humor, add me on face book if you like, as I am on there frequently & enjoy making new friends. & Feel free to message me on here as you see fit - i try to respond quickly!!! I am a very social person & I am always looking for new and interesting people to talk to - Thanx for reading !!!
