My self-summary
Many words can be used to describe me. Among my favorites: Lumberjack. Viking. X-Man. Giant. Galactus, Devourer of Planets.
I'm somewhere between Andy Dwyer and Ron Swanson.

I'm originally from Upstate NY (where we keep all the trees), and spent 2 years in NJ (the nice part, but still... Jersey) before moving to the city 6 years ago.

Is there something between one night stand and serious girlfriend? Cuz that's what I'm looking for. Something with no pressure or games, just two people enjoying each other's company.
I'm not against something real, but I'm often VERY busy, so I don't really have time to invest in a serious relationship right at the moment.

Anything else you want to know about me you'll either have to read further or ask me. (Actual contact with another human? That's just crazy talk!)
What I’m doing with my life
Working. A lot. I'm a union stagehand and freelance all over the city, so I work odd hours sometimes. And when I'm really busy, I work ALL the hours. So I try to make the most of the time I'm not working.
I also have a Tumblr where each day I post a song about a historical event for that day. Some days are more difficult to do than others, so I spend a lot of time researching that.
Or sleeping. Not gonna lie, I LOVE sleeping. I need to get a job sleeping. Like an MTA employee. (Jokes, America. I got jokes.)
I’m really good at
Making people laugh. Either with me or at me.
Useless trivia.
Bumping my head a lot and otherwise generally injuring myself in fun new ways. My old boss called me "Crash."
Making up new lyrics to songs.
Crossword puzzles.
Eating delicious food. I eat the FUCK out of good food.
The first things people usually notice about me
First they notice I'm tall, and then they make a "witty" comment about it.
Then they notice my hair and tattoos and say I look like I should've been on "Sons of Anarchy." Lately I've been getting Khal Drogo.

Also apparently I look Croatian. I'm only 1/4 Croat, but the old Balkan men in my neighborhood talk to me like we're back in Karlovac.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
this list could be pages longer...

Pretty much any Vonnegut, Heinlein, or Palahniuk. Steppenwolf, American Gods, Bossypants, League of Extraordinary Gentlemen, Jitterbug Perfume, just started ASOIAF. Currently reading: Modern Romance

Dirty Dozen, Big Lebowski, Roger Rabbit, and too many others. Too many. Most recent watched: The Night Before and The Wolfpack.

I'm huge into GoT, and I quote Futurama, 30 Rock, and Arrested Development in casual conversation. Also other shows you probably watch. Currently watching: Man in the High Castle, Jessica Jones, Brooklyn 99, and as always: SVU

I have an incredibly eclectic musical taste, but predominantly like hard rock, 90s rock & hip-hop, but I also dig folk, old country, blues, Motown, etc. Currently listening to: Faith No More and Clutch's new albums, STP, Run the Jewels, Ramones, and J Roddy Walston & the Business.

I generally prefer food that used to have legs. I also like food from all over the world (living in Queens helps). And of course, salt potatoes. You don't even know what those are, but you love them. They're that good.
The six things I could never do without
besides the basics (food/water/shelter/loved ones/sex)? In no order:

- music (I don't think you understand how important music is to me)
- intelligent conversation (I don't get enough)
- a creative outlet (I love making things)
- my car (it's not much, but it's a way out of town, and it's mine)
- naps (sleep is the best)
- I tried to not say "my phone" but who am I kidding?
I spend a lot of time thinking about
My next tattoo.
The semantics of the OKC questions.
The logistics involved in the construction of various structures and buildings.
The paradox of HATING the tourists, but knowing my job depends on all all the sweet money brought in by the chain-smoking Québécois and mouth-breathing Appalachians that clog our sidewalks.
Hoping Québécois women aren't offended by that last statement. UPDATE: at least one is, she wrote to tell me.
On a typical Friday night I am
doing the same thing I do every night: try to take over the world.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I love George Michael's "Freedom '90."
You should message me if
You've got a brain, a personality, and maybe some appealing physical traits, and you're not looking for something serious, there's other guys here you can go to for that.
You're 5'9" or taller. I'm serious, that's a deal breaker. Nothing against shorter women, there's just any number of annoyances that come with dating someone drastically shorter than me.
You're GGG too.
