About meI am a young manthing hailing from the western land of smog, consumerism, and disillusionment. I am a something of a nihilist philanthropist- although I suppose I'm only a philanthropist in my mind. I am characterized by a steady swaying between nihilism and hope, destruction and creation, love and loathing. I play synthesizers and feel that through making the most synthetic of music I am in a sense creating the most organic of art. That is, art as the product of human endeavor and passion.

I now only seek a path out of this land, into a place of orange sun and indigo skies, a place for me to rear young and graze beneath the sunset!

About my libraryAs is apparent upon glancing at my library, I have something of an obsession with Yukio Mishima, and, less specifically, a fascination with nihilism and existentialism. I embrace eastern culture and ideals, having something of a fetish for them. My disillusionment with my own culture has lead me to seek knowledge of others and the literature I have read has given me a deep desire to expatriate.

I enjoy science fiction, primarily of the dystopian and existential ilk. I am also interested in literature on psychotropic drug use, shamanism, and alternative lifestyle.
