Freakish Uproar's Interests

General

I'm an avid reader of books, short fiction, non-fiction, literary-criticism, academic/essayist texts, zines, poetry, artsy UG comics, art surveys, exhibition catalogues, photography publications and magazines. I have a very open-ended taste in music of various styles and (sub)genres, primarily of the independent/underground/D.I.Y./outsider variety, but I have a strict zero tolerance policy in regards to gatekeeping and elitism. I spend an inordinate amount of time watching online content, YT and Twitch channels, etc. Other than what I'll primarily focus on in this profile, I also have interests in history, weird nature and biology, Fortean subjects and eating extremely unhealthy food.

Music

Movies

I'm embarrassingly out of the loop when it comes to movies. Some of my alltime favourites include The Thing (1982), Lake Mungo, Shutter Island, and Withnail & I

Television

Same as I stated with films, I barely watch telly anymore!

Books

I certainly have a bunch of writers and publisher series I can recommend!

Freakish Uproar's Blurbs

About me:

I'm here to post stuff I've discovered that I like, in the hope that someone else will stumble upon that new favourite band, book, artist, Twitch/YT channel, etc. If you're a creative soul or just appreciate anything unusual and outré, feel free to send me a friend request! :3
Because this is the internet, I have to get some tedious stuff out of the way! I'm a heterosexual white man from the West Midlands in England. I'm left-leaning, pro-LGBT, anti-racism, anti-misogyny, pro-choice, and really not onboard with any kind of discrimination based upon arbitrary guff.


(P.S. anyone who likes our tiny invertebrate friends is also welcome to send me a friend request)

Who I'd like to meet:

Fellow appreciators of eclectica! Anybody involved in making and promoting music, art, literature, online content.

Thank's dude! Honestly I'm a bit embarrassed by my lack of HTML know-how, hence the attempt to compensate by embedding a fuck-tonne of Bandcamp albums :p I appreciate the kind words all the same :D

I only understood parts of what you said (I'm not fluent in Ghooric fungal-realm parallel Welsh ;p) but I am indeed a big fan of invertebrates. I sadly don't own any pets these days, but I have stick insects as a kid, so I'm rather fond of phasmids :3

You're into your noise and industrial music, correct? I'd have to cherry pick the Wraiths, Iron Sight, Les Hôpitaux, Body 13 and the Dave Phillip & Cornelia Hesse-Honegger albums. But it's all good in my humble opinion :D

I hope you find something you like :D It is a pretty eclectic pile of bands. Truth be told, I felt a tiny bit self-conscious about the mundanity of my relatively HTML-free profile page, so I compensated by embedding a bunch of albums from my BC collection ;p

THANK YOU FOR THIS

Report Comment



It's just the worst thing, isn't it! Sure, we all feel a little bit embarrassed about our weird interests from time to time. We fear not being understood, we fear being mocked for it, etc. I think what gatekeeping and elitism is the crystallization of that anxiety into an unhealthy defence mechanism, one that pre-emptively builds barriers to anyone "outside" the elitists comfort zone. It's self-doubt and fear masquerading as confidence, and it's so pitifully obvious.

by Freakish Uproar; ; Report

I can't tell you the amount of times I've been quizzed on something that I mention enjoying even if it's just a small hobby or a franchise that I started getting into. I definitely don't pretend to know everything, but it makes me feel more hesitant to reach out to people from those fanbases if they're going to be asshats about it.

by _Madame X_; ; Report

It's so weird! You'd think they would be happy to find someone else who had even the mildest interest in ANYTHING they also enjoyed.
