I'm an opinionated asshole. What's worse is, I'm usually right.
I'm gonna continue to be the unbridled, unrepentant, unremitting awesomeness that is me, and everyone is just going to have to come to terms with that.
"I am aware that there are folks on the intarweb who can't cope with my existence, and, you know what? That right there strikes me as being a tragic case of Not My Fucking Problem." - leswamp
"[This article speaks to] my stance of not giving a shit what people think of me as a person but caring very much what they think of me as a competent adult. Sure, it's nice to be liked, but when it comes down to it, I don't give a fuck if the people I work with think I'm a good person." - clevermanka
"Fuck this shit of 'respecting everyone's political opinions' - I'll respect your goddamn political opinions when your political opinions respect queers, minorities, women, the poor, marginalized people everywhere. I have no obligation to be nice to assholes." - raeling
I consider religious belief to be essentially the same as recreational drug use - what you do to and with yourself, if you enjoy it, is hunky dory. As soon as it negatively affects anyone else, you are fucking up and need to knock that shit off.
Independent of my general awesomeness and rampant egoism... well, really, that's all I've got. You'll just have to find a way to cope with it. That, and a whole lot of opinion, blather, unsolicited advice, and the occasional meme. It's a fucking LJ, people, what do you expect?
I also have a fitness-centric blog at http://digitaldiscipline.wordpress.com. Anyone wishing to be included on my [Fitness] filter here in LJ-land should comment on whatever my most-current public post is, because I am notoriously apathetic about checking for comments on my older entries. Like, I'll respond to them three years later.
I work for a very nice (and financially responsible) credit union by day, and exercise and dick around (for both fun and profit) online by night. I occasionally document these shenanigans on Youtube (again, fun & profit). Yes, I can reasonably called a cam whore. I prefer the term "purveyor of shoulder porn."
I'm on the staff of Dragon*Con's MMO Track (http://www.dc-mmo.org/blog/). This is because I refuse to shut up, and used play a lot of World of Warcraft (I still play Star Wars: The Old Republic), and the head of the DC-MMO track was in my guild, and figured he might as well harness my powers for the forces of [good/evil] (please choose one). I will be the insufferably energetic guy in the Utilikilt herding gamers around and wishing desperately that I had a vodka tonic in hand.
Disclaimer: In case it isn’t blindingly obvious, this is all my own shit — opinions, advice, colorful verbiage, and all — and has nothing whatsoever to do with my day job or the company I work for. The fact that many of my office colleagues come to me for fitness advice is merely a reflection of their good judgment.
