Ian's Interests

General

I got two main interests: physics—especially condensed matter physics, and atomic, optical, and molecular physics—and analog electronics—with synthesizers, computers, and recording being my main specialties. Aside from that, I like programming in Julia, Haskell, and various other languages. (Find me on Gitlab!) I like other stuff too—playing boomer shooters like Doom, Half-Life, or Deus Ex is something that comes to mind—but the ultra-nerd stuff is what takes up most of my time. (I added all the links for people who don't really know about the stuff I'm talking about.)

Music

I actually make music, which you can listen to on my bandcamp. Aside from that, I listen to a ton of different music. I've been in an ambient phase right now—likely because I'm making a lot of ambient music but I've also been listening to some classic acid house and jungle music.

Movies

Blade Runner and Blade Runner 2049 are probably my favorite movies; I'm a sucker for sci-fi, and I love the early cyberpunk aesthetics—plus the writing and acting in them is just brilliant. They scratch all the itches I got with movies. I watch other movies—obviously—but I don't feel like putting all of them down.

Television

I don't watch much TV outside of anime—especially Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood, Cowboy Bebop, and Keep Your Hands Off Eizouken!—and shows like Breaking Bad—though I watch old gameshows with my family pretty frequently.

Ian's Blurbs

About me:

Howdy, I'm Ian (19, he/they)—in general, I'm a queer, a bisexual/pansexual faggot, and I have no idea how to actually describe my gender/sexuality aside from that. In general, I'm what you'd call a fucking nerd. Feel free to listen to my latest album!

Who I'd like to meet:

I mean, hey, if you're cool then I'd like to meet you—but if we share some common interests, that's cool!
