OOM Compass

6


6 per unit Virtual OK

Ask of me, and I will point you to an OOM: a Strange Thing as described in my profile in the OOMlich hex.

If you so wish, you may request to be pointed to an OOM that falls primarily into a certain one or more of the six arms of the OOMlich hex:

Surreal, Grotesque, Unpolished, Sexual, Symbolic, Textured.

For example: "I'd like an OOM heavy on the unpolished, and light on the surreal, please."

It will be an OOM I have not yet shared as one of my daily OOMs:

I also have Pinterest boards for each of the arms of the OOMlich hex, if you would like to see what they are like. :)

(Note: due to the utterly undefined phrase in the Simbi terms' legalese: "You agree not to post or provide any services of a sexually explicit ... nature" I cannot provide any service that more than tentatively involves the mysterious and blessed things of the sexual arm of the OOMlich hex.)

Training & Qualifications


I am thoroughly and unapologetically fascinated by all things OOMlich.

I've posted about a Daily OOM each workday for over 270 OOMs, written over 145 Daily Written OOMs, published 14 OOMlich games on itch.io, published an OOMlich novella and children's haunted house book, have two OOMlich short stories in the Fantastic Schools magical school anthologies, and have completed various other OOMlich endeavours.

Availability & Preferences


Sundays through Fridays, 6:00 am - 7:00 pm, but away from the computer for hard to predict periods throughout these times. :)

Trading Preference: I’m flexible, just hit me up!

About Patrick Lauser

I am a lover of Yahweh, and of all who love Yahweh, a purveyor of the strange things of our Maker. Your neighbour taking out their garbage on a different day than normal would be strange, which is ...obviously not what I'm talking about, so to specify I call the strange things I purvey using the term "OOM" (Of Our Maker). For a thing to be that kind of strange, to be an OOM, that thing must fall heavily enough in one or more arms of the OOMlich Hex, which are: Surreal Grotesque Sexual Symbolic Unpolished Textured The Surreal The closest thing to "OOMlich" in a more familiar word. Where fiction can express what history cannot, and fantasy can express what mere fiction cannot, the Surreal can express what mere fantasy cannot. The Grotesque The gruesome, horrifying, disturbing, ugly, these are right aims of an artist, as well as the beautiful and comforting. The Sexual Few things are as naturally, celestially, and deeply strange as sexual intercourse, and the intimacies which radiate from that perfect centre. The Symbolic The mystery of curious symbols, why people try to interpret dreams, why other languages are used in fictional magic, why languages and scripts in general are OOMlich in concept and aesthetic. The Unpolished Why a child's drawing, or movies from the late 1900s, are often OOMlich, and also one reason this rather ungainly hex is itself OOMlich. The cheesy, edgy, grunge, rough-cut, the attraction of things even oneself dislikes. The Textured Refers to an aspect in the other aspects: how repeating patterns are part of the surreal, how trypophobia stimuli are part of the grotesque, how multiplication (especially among prolific animals) into a teeming swarm is part of the sexual, how symbols in scripts form textures, and how the coarse and grainy is part of the unpolished. Let me know if you share my interests! I was curious and did some figuring, and I found out that if you take a series of 12 circles with an increasing number of points at equal intervals on their circumferences, the number of single-line, self-crossing star polygons (like the pentagram) that you can make on the twelve circles is also 12: 4 can make 1 star, 2 can make 2 stars, 1 can make 4 stars, and the smallest number of points that can make a star is 5 (the pentagram), and 5 of the circles cannot make a star. !show more
