Sorry, hardly ever here, I freelance and don't have much spare time right as I'm in the middle of a huge contract!
I was a singer, drummer and DJ in the Alt scene. My 'sensible' job is in academia. For 'fun' I write dystopian/cyber, dark science fantasy and/or historical fiction, when I get the time! Some of my stuff is out there on the net (goodreads, Lulu etc)- free reads/previews and to buy should anyone be feeling generous
'Goth' but not trad- I just like what I like
Have put a couple of bands on. I have 1000s of tunes I love by as many bands, so not putting them all on!
Not looking for a date (cynical to the max about whether sites like this will ever work but hey if it happens) and DEFINITELY no hookups- panromantic (not bi but that was the only choice) but not poly. (Edit: let me spell this out, didn't think I'd have to but ho hum- no, no threesomes, no messages from people in 'open relationships' looking for a bit on the side, no relationships involving more than one person at a time- that's what 'NOT POLY' means. Panromantic means being attracted to someone of any orientation, not attracted to everyone all at the same time. I'd go all out there and say I'm actually sapio-romantic.) Never married, no kids both by choice. Not looking to be someone's stepmom or a baby sitter for a potential partner, but friends with kids bring it on. New friends of all sorts would be cool.
I don't game, (prefer to read) and have no tattoos.I'm probably the only person I know without any! If someone has them that's cool as it's their body but it's not something I'd want on me
Same with piercings really, I have a couple, one in my nose and seven in my ears but not necessary for other people to have many/any. I'm into a lot of sports (especially biathlon and other endurance sports,) sadly an armchair enthusiast as work and other stuff stops me participating...
I guess it's worth staying for a bit if there are any nice people on here! (Note: I have no real response to 'winks'. It costs nothing but a few minutes of time to compose a message. So yeah, hi there but not sure where it's supposed to 'go' from a 'wink'. If you've sent one, thanks very much but I have no way to connect to that, so they're unlikely to generate a response, sorry.)
LGBTIQA phobia (you're not scared, you're an a**ehole)
people who chew their food audibly
unsolicited d*ck pics/ requests to s*xt or go on cam from strangers (actually won't be happening full stop)
spiders (genuine phobia)
cheesy goth stuff (skulls, zombies, people pretending to be vampires, badly made statues of dragons)
people who proudly say 'I don't read'
grounds (i.e. hitting them at high speed, as opposed to 'fear of heights')
organised patriarchal religions
users, liars, narcs and players
national and mulitnational conglomerates and anyone else whose CEO/Director earns hundreds of thousands of pounds while their staff struggle to make ends meet
horror films (suspense and gothic/Victorian horror yes, though! Just find most modern horror cheesy, sexist and contrived.)
people who say music is sh*t just because they don't like it
music (from Ancient Sumerian to classical to futurist to doom metal and almost everything in between)
art (from ancient to pre-Raphaelite, to surrealist and almost everything in between)
medieval/ antique weaponry and decor
wearing black (easier to match!)
ancient historical sites
so yes the environment, and preserving it, is a good thing
thus unsurprisingly I love museums and art galleries
Sci fi and fantasy
graphic novels (Sandman, Preacher, Hellblazer etc. Asterix is also awesome)
Action, surreal and suspense films
Alan Rickman (requiescat in pace)
my car, Magnus
almost anything Nordic (except for racist connotations)
Ichabod Crane (the TV show one)
almost everything about Celldweller (apart from the Christianity bit.) Also black and red hair is a GOOD combo (and his music is ace.)
being tall (I am almost six foot)
writing (music, literature)
