My self-summary
Originally from Rhode Island. In Chicago since 2009. Love the city but miss the east coast (mostly due to my nephew being there but I try to visit as often as possible.)

I'm a nerd about almost anything.

I have 2 jobs, one of which (writing and production assistant work) lets me express all the nerdly goodness life has to offer. Through said nerdy job I've been able to meet some awesome people and a few celebs (The cast and writer/producer of Doctor Who, Neil Degrasse Tyson, a whole bunch of comedians and a fair amount of star wars people)
Also, i wrote a star wars parody video for them which did pretty well.

I have a world record for high fives.
What I’m doing with my life
living, working, stuff, things.
Day job takes a bit of my time and when I'm not there I'm working for the other. Good news is that I'm literally paid to be a nerd so it involves "research" on things I'd already be enjoying
I’m really good at
- being an uncle. Before my nephew learned names he ranked all 4 of his uncles. I proudly held the title of 'Uncle 1' & am now "Unca Bwake"
- i have a stupidly encyclopedic knowledge of random things no one in their right mind would commit to memory.
- being a decent cook.
The first things people usually notice about me
my ability to rarely take anything too seriously. Worrying gets you nowhere.

I am a massive annoyance with random info about random things. i am a wikipedia/google junkie and will find an answer to something if asked.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Hitchhikers guide and anything Douglas Adams wrote.
along with anything by Kurt Vonnegut and A.J. Jacobs.
Moon-walking With Einstein
The Moral Landscape
There's more, but lets finish this list with: comic books

Movies? I watch almost all types of movies and have my favorites here and there, if you've seen it, i probably have too and could shoot off more trivia about it than you'd like.

Shows: Daily Show, Colbert, Shameless, Law & Order SVU, Burn Notice, You're the Worst, The League, Archer, Family Guy, Mystery Science Theater 3000 & Rifftrax, Breaking Bad, Better Call Saul, Sirens, Agents of Shield, Game Of Thrones, Rick & Morty, Doctor Who. the list goes on and on. Anything on cartoon network, the history channel, discovery channel or Food Network.

Music: Most anything except twangy "i love my truck" country and "my life was so hard" rap and R&B. My ipod confuses people. i guess i should name a few anyways: Mike Doughty, Huey Lewis & The News, Rustic Overtones, Ted Leo & The Pharmacists, Cake, The Kooks, Hall & Oates, The Mad Caddies, Soul Coughing, Five Iron Frenzy, Jr Jr. This list also goes on and on

Favorite foods: I love a lot of food with the exception of being the worst New Englander ever by not liking lobster, crab or shrimp (it's a textural thing) I dont think you cant go wrong with a good burger and a cold dark beer.
The six things I could never do without
•Family & Friends
•My nephew (he gets his own mention because he's the coolest person I know)
•The internet (Face it, the internet is miraculous. Any information you need often literally in the palm of your hand)
• Embarrasingly large amounts of sleep
• My sometimes overly critical but good natured outlook on things

Ahh, shit. I should have listed "You, maybe?" as one of the 6 things, that would've been the dorky romantic thing to do, right?
I spend a lot of time thinking about
-What to Wikipedia next
-How i can become Spider Man for real. It's got to be possible!
-How some people seem to pride themselves on "Not having a TV" as if they're somehow above being a normal person but then mention their love of netflix.

Also, there's got to be a way i can find my antithesis match on this site. Someone with whom i rank at least 90% enemy, i would imagine we would of course hate each other, but in an awesome arch nemesis sort of way. I'm pretty sure we'd get along.
On a typical Friday night I am
Enjoying a beer and some food with friends. Catching up on crappy TV.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I don't like guacamole. Hate me if you must.
You should message me if
You want an new friend named Blake*

*You do, in fact, want an new friend named Blake. It'll be great.

It's a bit odd that girls on this site demand more than just a "hello" right out the gate. Saying they won't respond to just a hi or something that doesn't knock their socks off is delusional. If you find the person attractive you'll message the "hi" guy back.

Its just that, 1. Isn't it kind of presumptuous someone will pour their heart out in the first interaction? And 2. Wouldn't anyone be creeped out if someone walked up to you in public without saying hello and started a heartfelt soliloquy?

So we'll be adults about it. I'll say hello and you say hi back if you want and vice versa.
