My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I contradict myself more than anyone else ever has.

Well, THAT'S not very informative, is it now?

Like a lot of people, I'm unsure how well I can sum myself up in this little text box. So get to know me, maybe?

DMV native, politically progressive pragmatist.

ENFP, although the Meyers-Briggs is evidently bullshit.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm a partner, graphic designer and art director for a hobby game publishing company. "I make things up for a living" is sometimes an accurate job description. Being my own boss may well have ruined me for 9-5 work, but I hope to never have to put that to the test. I run another small imprint on the side, and do freelance layout and design as well. I'm basically a professional nerd. I have also been the poster child for "professional overcommitment," but I'm trying to tamp that side of me down.

Lately, I've been making a serious effort to get fitter. Running doesn't suck as much as I thought it would. Consistency is the thing I need to work on. It would be great to have someone to encourage, and be encouraged back, honestly.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Overcommitting.

*cough*

Oh, all right. I'm reasonably good at graphic design, cooking (given a recipe), writing, and procrastinating. I'm semi-good at a lot of things, but I'd like to master one or two of them.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'll talk to anyone and everyone.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Music: I have what could be called a "music problem". Rather than list favorite bands, I'll just list the last 10 albums I acquired (as of 5/11/2015):

Kamasi Washington - The Epic
TORRES- s/t
OST - Lost River
Oddissee - The Good Fight
Zoe Keating - Into the Trees
Amanda Shires - Carrying Lightning
Pale Blue - The Past We Leave Behind
The Jon Spencer Blues Explosion - Freedom Tower : No Wave Dance Party 2015
Chastity Belt - Time to Go Home
Swervedriver - I Wasn't Born to Lose You
v/a - Ultra-High Frequencies: The Chicago Party
Radical Dads - Universal Coolers
People Under the Stairs - 12 Step Program

Wait. That's 13. Well, I DID say I have a music problem...

Books: Dracula, Sherlock Holmes, Focualt's Pendulum, Cryptonomicon, anything by Heinlen, Lovecraft, micro-histories...Look, I have a book problem too, ok? I also have a basement full of comics and graphic novels, and a crap-ton of games.

Podcasts: Planet Money, America's Test Kitchen, Radiolab, There's No Such Thing As A Fish, Decode DC, Invisibilia, Ken & Robin Talk About Stuff.

Food: I will try pretty much anything once, and keep eating it again if I like it.

Movies: I love movies, although I've gotten out of the habit of going to them very often. Thank goodness for large TVs. with a special focus on sci-fi and fantasy movies, monster movies (no torture porn horror, please), and Asian cinema, usually of the action variety. (Through methods I cannot specify, I've acquired most of the 60s-80s output of the Shaw Brothers Studios, and am trying to watch them all. If this sounds like fun to you, extra points.)

TV: I've been terrible about getting hooked on any series TV, so I'm kind of culturally stunted when it comes to any of the current hotness. The Blacklist almost hooked me, and I recently watched True Detective. I've been known to watch a fair amount of baseball and hockey as well, when left to my own devices.

I'm a pretty ardent fan of fine, lowbrow and outsider art, pinup art and photography, and illustration. I'm running out of wall space in my house. I might have to start rotating things.

My tumblr name is atomicovermind, should you care to get an idea of some of my aesthetic tastes.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Good design, good food, good beer and cocktails, good books/comics, technology, DC Sports, games. (an un-ordered list).
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Work, politics, graphic design (card carrying font-snob), games, baseball & hockey (in season), how I'm so behind on seeing movies that I may get my nerd card revoked, how I really need to buckle down and finish Bioshock.

And the number of people on here who both "work hard" and "play hard".
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Out seeing a band, watching sports in a local bar, dining well in the city, or at a friend's place playing games. Those are the usual locations.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I own more clothing related to my fictional alma mater than my real one.

Outside of that, I don't tend to admit private things on the Internet. But I have some private things.
