Five things about me
Here is a list of 5 things you may or may not know about me:
(idea stolen/copied from lakeguy)

1. My last job was programming for an adult online streaming website. Walking through the office regularly had porn on someone's screen, which also made the casual conversations much more likely to include sexual content as a topic. This is where I learned of the flat penis (google it, if you dare) and talked about tenticle dildos on toy helicopters.
2. I have a thing for jockstraps, red heads, and moderately hairy guys. Combinations of the three are especially nice.
3. I was a teacher's pet in school and enjoyed learning. Despite that I don't have a thing for learning for the sake of learning and don't fall victim to the Wikipedia trap very often.
4. I get bored with repetition very easily and strive to automate or simplify as much as possible, in both work and personal life. I still don't understand how others tolerate doing the exact same thing over and over. Once I've learned the concept and have a good grasp of things then I start getting bored.
4b. I'm a problem solver. When there's a problem then I try to find a solution. Some people like to just complain, but I still look for a solution. I dislike hearing people talk about problems if they aren't also looking for solutions.
5. I occasionally think about taking adult-oriented photos and videos and posting them publicly online. I have no concern about being exposed or impact on political career possibilities (bring it on!), yet I can't bring myself to do it without some sort of feedback or collaboration.

Current Mood: accomplished accomplished

I've gotten into posting on Xtube. Yes, it's for strangers, but I also get good feedback, offers for collaboration, and I've actually made a friend or two.

Ooo.... now I'm curious. :-P

Mainly I'm hoping whoever I'm involved with would encourage it, play camera man, and help make sure the shots are actually decent (whereas I am really bad at getting good shots of myself).

I've gotten quite good at getting good shots on my own. If you need any tips, let me know! ;)

Mainly I'm just curious what you've posted to xtube. :-P

That's something I've occasionally thought about making a post about, asking if anyone on my list has ever posted anything online. I'm curious like that. :)

I've just posted a lot of cumshots. lol

If you ever join, let me know! We can subscribe to each other's channels. :D

I have an account on Xtube already; I've just never posted anything to it. It's not anonymous or psuedo named either. At least one friend found it and starting using my favorites as a jumping point for more content.

*waves back*
*waves back enthusiastically*
*waves back so enthusiastically he falls out of his chair*
Help! I've fallen and I can't get up!

... okay, not really. I had a conversation similar to that with a coworker when they started an IM conversation with "hi" and then nothing else for several minutes so I just started spamming messages similar to the above.

That's my natural response when someone starts an IM conversation with "hi" is to go off into the ridiculous.

Now I feel like you're just trying to screw with me. :-D

Fine. *pretends*

I took quite a few unclad self-portraits a few years ago, and a few of them have actually made it into print. I did it partly because of some lingering self-image issues, and it was seriously good for that. No regrets, at all.

There used to be a couple of porn shots of me out on the web, too, posted by a former partner ... but I think those are gone now.
zimzat From: zimzat Date: November 17th, 2013 08:44 pm (UTC) (Link)
Probably not gone, but very obscure. If you had a copy of the originally posted images you could probably look them up in Google Image to see where all they may be posted now, if any.

I imagine getting positive feedback would be nice, though I am concerned about getting negative (which would just confirm my self-image) and overly-enthusiastic responses. Or maybe no response at all would be what I fear the most about that idea.
kishenehn From: kishenehn Date: November 17th, 2013 08:55 pm (UTC) (Link)
I don't think I'm going looking for the old porn. :)

For me, at least, the act of taking and posting the photos was the liberation ... more so than the response. But yeah, I wouldn't have had the nerve to post anything on xtube. LJ and places like it are much more supportive.
zimzat From: zimzat Date: November 18th, 2013 12:06 am (UTC) (Link)
LiveJournal/etc is much easier to get to know your audience and give personal feedback, yeah. Xtube is too easy to be just some anonymous sex-driven drive-by. :/

My target audience on LJ has shrunk and contains a number of straight friends (especially via cross-posting).
kishenehn From: kishenehn Date: November 18th, 2013 12:37 am (UTC) (Link)
Yeah, my friends list is much more diverse these days, compared to the early years of LJ. That's not a bad thing, really, though a part of me admittedly misses all the catty-gay posts of days gone by. :)
