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.
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.
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.

Wait. That's 14. 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. Generally I have a special focus on sci-fi and fantasy movies, monster movies (no torture porn horror, please), and Asian cinema, usually (but not always) 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.
And the number of people on here who both "work hard" and "play hard".
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.
You are, at the very least nerd-friendly.
You can deal with a moderately hateful cat.
