I've been looking for a couple other journals to follow and I've noticed a lot of people have some sort of introductory post that's public so possible new friends/subscribers can get some sort of gauge on who they are.

Seems like a good idea.


Me:
Male in the upper half of the 30's. Southern California. Married with (not to) dog. Feminist. Geek stuff. High school goth (kinda sorta).

Job:
I work as a SysAdmin for a company that distributes eggs worldwide. Any job talk that shows up here will be IT-related bitching probably. "End user X sucks because Y. Waaaah." Not techinical stuff.

Random facts:
In addition to my full time job, I'm a part time student at a Cal State University. I tried college initially out of high school, but only lasted a couple years before my laziness and lack of direction/ambition got the better of me. Started attending classes again in 2009 and have been ever since. At my current pace, a couple years from graduating.

I consider myself agnostic because I don't like to go with absolutes based on nothing more than feeling.

I'm as left-leaning politically as anyone I know, but I feel like I still have a lot to learn. I have a particular distaste for "human" predators of any kind unless they're hunting other predators. I may have to think of a better way to say that. I'm a card-carrying member of the Legislative Drafting Institute for Child Protection and will be for as long as I am able.

Interests:
Covered by that part of my profile, but here's some detail--
Music - I like weird/experimental/metal/noise/industrial type stuff a lot. I listen to a lot of soundtracks and modern classical music, as well. I like "different". I don't actually believe that PJ Harvey is God, but she and her music are the closest thing in my life to religion. I've recently started re-posting mixes I used to make for LiveJournal to a blogspot because some friends on Facebook asked me to. I'll also start posting new ones there once I finish re-posting the old ones. You are welcome to try them out as you please, whether you add me or not.

Comics - I buy more than I can read. I'm a Marvel zombie and also really into just about anything Image puts out. Almost. I try to vote for comics with my dollars and always go through the independent/green section of Previews just as thoroughly as the rest of it.

Movies - I like all kinds of movies, but there's a special place in my heart for 60's and 70's Japanese movies. I have a website and Tumblr dedicated to the actress Meiko Kaji because I think she's the fuckin' coolest. And I have another Tumblr for classic Japanese movie stuff. I like to share that stuff when I come across it.

Hockey - The only sport I watch is ice hockey. I have a season seat for LA Kings games. I care little for the other sports, but I can watch them.

Books - Comics aren't the only thing I read! I don't read as many books as I'd like because there are only so many hours in the day, but I really enjoy mystery and horror stuff.

What I'm doing here:
I originally started this for private stuff, shown only to friends, but I like doing it again after being absent from LJ for so long, so... we'll see. I would like some more stuff to read.

Questions are welcome.
