My self-summary
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. (bonus points if you get the reference)

OK, not really. 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, in large part because the musicians of this fine city seem to be obsessed with meathead hard rock and "metal" that's made specifically for guys who wear Tapout and Affliction t-shirts unironically, and I'm just not looking to play that stuff. If you can help me with that, please let me know, because that whole scene has been done to death in Philly, and sometimes it seems like those are the only bands out there. Sigh.

Aaaaanyway... 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
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
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
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. Thankfully I haven't heard this in a while, because it was getting irritating.

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
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. Started The Game by Ken Dryden.

Movies: I lean toward comedy, but 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, for reasons I'll be happy to discuss if you ask. Romcoms are right out, so don't bother asking unless you're going to offer something stupendously awesome in return. (No, sex doesn't count - when you've been dating someone for a while and the relationship is good, sex is part of the deal, not bargaining currency.)

Shows: Game of Thrones, comedy cartoons (some Adult Swim shows, South Park), among some others. The majority of my TV watching time is sports-related, and I'm a sucker for any hockey game. I like Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert, but I don't watch their shows much, because they're a constant reminder of all the stupid shit I hate about this country. My feelings on reality TV are similar to my feelings on romcoms: No. Except maybe Brew Dogs. Also have a small interest in anime. Black Lagoon, Ghost in the Shell, Cowboy Bebop, to name a few.

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 (this includes Jager and Sambuca, though I'll generally do one shot of anything if someone else is buying).
The six things I could never do without
Music
Friends and family
Electricity (I like technology too much to completely go without)
Hope
Humor
Air conditioning in the summer (see electricity above)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
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. For example, if I think I have an opinion on something, I'll actually play devil's advocate with myself (heh, play with myself) and maybe even do a little research to see if there are any problems with my opinion that I haven't considered yet. See, people think that all opinions are equally valid just because everyone is entitled to one. Not true. The Westboro "Baptist" "Church" is entitled to its opinion that blah blah something about gays blah blah blah 9/11 was awesome blah blah, but that doesn't make them right, and the fact that they're entitled to dumb and/or reprehensible opinions doesn't make them not assholes.
On a typical Friday night I am
Going to (or preferably playing) a show. Having some friends over and firing up the hookah (the only kind of smoking I ever do, only about once every 6 weeks or so at most, so don't worry, I don't smell or taste like smoke and neither does my house). 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. Well, mostly. Don't judge me.)
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
If you put something on a website, it's not private anymore. Come on OkCupid, this isn't rocket science.

Though I will admit that I dig natural gingers. Doesn't mean I think everybody with red hair is automatically hot or anything, just saying it's a plus.
I’m looking for
  • Girls who like guys
  • Ages 23–34
  • Near me
  • Who are single
  • For long-term dating, short-term dating
You should message me if
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 don't play games when it comes to dating. If we hang out, just make it clear whether you're interested or not, mmmkay? You don't have to literally spell it out, but don't make me wonder either.

Side note: if your profile contains any variation of the phrase "if you can't handle me at my worst, you don't deserve me at my best," please read this immediately and adjust your attitude accordingly. Thanks :)
