My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
There's just one thing I ever need to know about anyone: Would you put your brain in a robot body? You'd have the strength of 5 gorillas, but you'd only be 5 feet tall.

OK, not really, but bonus points if you get the reference. I guess I should be serious for a minute. I work in IT, but my degree is in music. I play bass and have been looking for a new band for some time now. Trying to find the right people to play with is an awful lot like dating, honestly, so I'm dealing with twice as much futility and bullshit as the majority of you. Weep for me. (Ha! Jokes! Kidding! Sort of...) Update: Got something potentially coming together. Fingers crossed.

I'm a sports fan, especially hockey. I consider myself a nerd/geek/dork or whatever you want to call it, because I enjoy several nerdy pursuits to varying degrees (video games, sci-fi/fantasy, anime, the occasional tabletop RPG, etc.). Craft beer? Yes, please.

I'll stop there for now, because I get wordy when I write. Plus there's a bunch more shit for you to (probably not) read anyway!
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Paying bills. Spending money. (Good thing I'm gainfully employed, eh?) Becoming a rock star, if only I could find a band. Spending time with my friends, who are by and large sarcastic assholes, but not in a bad way. For example, we might say "fuck off" or "no, you can't do that" instead of "bless you" when someone sneezes.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Bass guitar. Chili, which is really the extent of my cooking skills, other than bacon and scrambled eggs (and I'm serviceable on a grill). Spelling and grammar. Being a good friend. Being aware of (most of) my own strengths and limitations. Getting bitten to death by mosquitos in short periods of time. Being awesome. At least, in my opinion, anyway.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
People I'm meeting for the first time sometimes tell me I look like somebody they know, like their father's brother's nephew's cousin's former roommate.

I don't have the ginormous reddish beard anymore, but when I did, that was usually the first thing. I know some of you are into beards, but I'm probably not bringing mine back on anything resembling a permanent basis. It would take some convincing.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books: Semi-recently finished book 5 of A Song of Ice and Fire, as well as a collection of short stories from the Cthulhu mythos. I'm currently reading A World of Ice and Fire. Yes, I'm a nerd, no need to remind me. I started The Game by Ken Dryden a while back, but haven't finished.

Movies: I lean toward comedy. My favorite movie is Slap Shot, which is a much better overall film than it gets credit for. Warning: I'm VERY picky about movies regardless of genre, and it can be difficult to talk me into watching a movie. If I'm going to sit and watch something, I'd rather it be TV than movies. I have a few reasons, but the biggest is probably that I just prefer ongoing stories to short self-contained ones. I also like the option you have with TV of just watching an episode or two, or the entire damn series in one shot if you want.

Shows: Game of Thrones, comedy cartoons (Robot Chicken, Aqua Teen Hunger Force, Harvey Birdman, Archer, South Park), @midnight, among some others. The majority of my TV watching time is sports-related, and I'm a sucker for any hockey game. I also have some interest in anime.

Music: Minus The Bear, Skyharbor, This Day & Age/The Reign of Kindo, Thrice, Innerpartysystem, Dead Letter Circus, Black Sabbath, Maybeshewill, The Philosopher Kings, Soilwork, MF Doom, Cloudkicker, Tesseract, and of course many others.

Food: Yes. Except olives, raw tomatoes, and black licorice. Mexican is my favorite.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Friends and family
Electricity (I like technology too much to completely go without)
Air conditioning in the summer (see electricity above)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
What to do when I grow up. Whether or not to sell my house. I tend to analyze things, so I spend a lot of time analyzing.

Let's see, what else...

How can we get people to realize that being entitled to an opinion doesn't mean that every opinion is valid?

Why do people think the First Amendment protects them from being fired for saying stupid shit?

Why do people think that being assholes toward service employees will get them better service?

Why, in the name of all that is good and right in the world, have the Phillies not fired Ruben Amato Jr. yet? Does he have compromising photos of all his superiors? Is he literally a wizard who has cast a spell on them? What in the actual fuck has he done to warrant continued employment?
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Going to (or preferably playing) a show. Having some friends over and firing up the hookah (the only kind of smoking I ever do, and that's once every couple months or so at most, so don't worry, I don't smell or taste like smoke). Anywhere with an awesome beer selection and great food will get my attention. Maybe just relaxing at home if that's what I feel like doing.

Or doing 2 chicks at the same time. I think if I were a millionaire I could hook that up, too, 'cause chicks dig dudes with money. Well, the type of chicks that'd double up on a dude like me do.

(I shouldn't have to put this here, but yes, that last part is a quote from a movie, and thus, a joke.)
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'll go with a few minor things I haven't already mentioned, I guess?

I like gingers. Not a dealbreaker by any means, but it's a bonus.
I bite my nails.
I live in the house I grew up in, but I don't live with my parents.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You think I'm awesome. Which would force you to assume a lot about me just from reading some bullshit I wrote on a free dating site. In other words, go for it! ;)

You have lots of common interests with me, the more the better. Nerds/geeks/dorks definitely preferred. I've done the whole "not much in common" thing with mixed results, but I've never dated anyone I've had a large amount in common with, so I'm definitely interested in giving that a try.

Your political opinions tend to lean left, or are at least legitimately in the middle. I hate to be judgmental, but most current right wing talking points double as idiot filters for me. So... yeah. Totally judgmental on that. Sorry.

You do not in any way subscribe to the phrase "If you can't handle me at my worst, you don't deserve me at my best," because no.
