My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I bulldoze and rebuild everything in my profile every few months when I get bored with it, and it's about that time again. Mildly different content, with half the calories!

Let's get started. I'm yet another of the apparently infinite influx of people migrating here from the less-awesome parts of the world, in this case from the Midwest because cornfields and political corruption quickly lose their novelty when you're not in control of either. I've been here for about a year and a half, and I don't know many more people than I did before I got here. I'm here hoping to change that, hopefully with a combination of dazzling personality, terrible puns and wordplay, and award-winning levels of modesty.

I won't say I'm here looking for a commitment per se, but I want to have interesting and mutually-rewarding relationships of varying duration and levels of intimacy - I'll never turn down new friends, but the less platonic, the better. So, basically, open relationships are my default preference for the foreseeable future. I want something that can either be defined as "casually serious" or "seriously casual." I don't care for meetups or hookups that only last the one night/weekend, though.

I have a nice little conga line of -ists that define my social identity, because I find labels provide and refine detail rather than restrict it, as well as demand a certain level of internal honesty and consistency. So, in no particular order, I'm an anarchist, socialist, atheist, feminist, secular humanist, polyamorist, technologist, and aspiring roboticist. I'm a casual PC gamer too, but that doesn't end with -ist so it's hard to put it in there.

I consider myself a student of life, and most of my side projects are ongoing challenges to my comfort zone and worldviews more than particular milestones. Currently experimenting with ethical non-monogamy, 420, and figuring out where I am on the kink spectrum. Anyone want to help me learn more about any of this?
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm a manufacturing tech for an aerospace company on the east side. I hate it because it means I work nights 4 days a week and thus my social life is mostly nonexistent, but it pays the bills while I figure out how to get somewhere else. Current career goal is to get into the cybersecurity industry, and I'm doing online classes to get my IT certifications toward this.

Sometimes I swing dance, and occasionally I'm good at it. But I'd rather be out tecking, or rather I'd rather be at home watching videos learning how to do so, because electronic shuffle and house music are WAY more fun to listen to.

Recently, I've taken up more of a renewed interest in doing standup, because my friends think I'm hilarious and my enemies think I'm insufferable, so I figured why not. So even though I haven't actually done any bits myself, I try to get into the city on weekends for comedy nights and also stay reasonably updated on current politics, because as a wise man once said, "It's easy to be a comic when you've got the whole government working for you."

I've been a lifelong gamer, but nowadays I have much less time or energy for it if I'm not with friends. Default titles = WoW, League of Legends, Borderlands, Left 4 Dead, Dungeons of the Endless, FTL: Faster Than Light, Minecraft, and especially Skyrim. Puzzle platformer games are the best. Also I bought a PS3 exclusively to play COD Ghosts with a friend, because I'm a masochist like that. I am always interested in having a new co-op partner!

When I'm not being a homebody, I try to keep myself semi-human through sightseeing, meetups, and piecemeal community service (food/clothes drives, blood donation, etc). I'm a proud member of the relatively-new Seattle chapter of the Satanic Temple, and I love our ongoing work to maintain the separation of church and state.

Also, of course, Netflix.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Getting down to business and defeating the Huns. Why do you suppose you've never seen any in this area?

I bet I'm a terrible singer, but that doesn't stop me from belting along with whatever's on my Pandora channel at the moment. I want to go karaoke'ing sometime and duet Voltaire's Stuck With You with someone, it would be hilarious.

Also, I'm fairly proud of my handshake and can make a decent rum and coke.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
1) Love of theatrics. Puns, physical comedy, wild gesturing for emphasis, I do it all!
2) Corollary to 1): I love physical contact with people I care about and/or am generally attracted to. Always looking for a good snuggle buddy!
3) Love of pasta and food in general
4) Terrible music/literature/game references
5) I fidget a lot when I'm in a good mood, and have a similarly springy step while walking in said mood. I call it "Baldur's gait."

Also, possibly due to how seriously I take clear communication (hopefully evidenced throughout this profile), some people tell me that I intimidate them. I don't do it on purpose, I promise. I'm a teddy bear.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Stuff I read:
I read a lot of political history and social issue books these days. Most of it revolves around class warfare and polyamory. I just finished The Ethical Slut and I'm working on Opening Up, thanks to the several people here who have recommended both.

But obviously, just sticking to politics and the real world would be incredibly boring, so some of my favorite fiction titles and authors:
Most of the Forgotten Realms series by RA Salvatore
Ready Player One
Fahrenheit 451
A Clockwork Orange
The Harry Potter series
Dune
The Alchemist
A Canticle For Leibowitz
World War Z

I have a bad habit of buying large numbers of books at Value Village because of their damn "Buy 4, get the 5th free!" deal. So I collect classics, tech manuals, whatever - but I've been trying to refresh and expand my fantasy and scifi tastes more recently. Name me an author! (I love homages to Lovecraft and classic mythology)

Stuff I listen to:
I listen to just about all kinds of music except country and rap, I default to classic rock/hair metal because Joan Jett is the sexiest woman alive and probably will be even if she lives to be a hundred.

Other bands/performers important to my well-being:
Jonathan Coulton
Tim Minchin
Voltaire
Garfunkel and Oates
Bo Burnham
Lily Allen
Infected Mushroom
Glitch Mob
Iron Maiden
Combichrist
Marilyn Manson
Daft Punk
Five Iron Frenzy
Streetlight Manifesto
Electrixx

I also listen to a lot of standup these days, thanks to Pandora. John Mulaney is quickly becoming my next idol after Elizabeth Warren. Also I adore the hell out of Iliza Shlesinger.

Stuff I Watch:
Lot of sci-fi/fantasy stuff, mostly, and TED talks.

Continuum
Eureka
Rick and Morty
Invader Zim
Archer
Bob's Burgers
HIMYM
Supernatural
Warehouse 13
The Walking Dead
Arrow
Z-Nation
Leverage

I watch The Daily Show, Last Week Tonight, and old episodes of The Colbert Report religiously. I also have a tradition of watching Colbert's White House Correspondence Dinner speech on a semi-regular basis, because the shit-eating grin on W's face will never get old.

I'm generally addicted to older Disney movies, because the soundtrack for The Hunchback of Notre Dame is absolutely amazing and never gets old. But I like pretty much any kind of movie if it's done well (but I have a soft spot for zombie movies regardless of quality). Most of my movies are sci-fi, action-drama, and Pixar. Lord of the Rings marathon, anyone?

Stuff I eat:
I eat everything that doesn't have olives or mushrooms in it. Preferably pasta. You could bribe me with lasagna or Nutella, and possibly even with Nutella-covered lasagna. I love the royal hell out of BBQ anything, though.

Also, I love eggs but I don't know how to make them in any other form except "scrambled." Please teach me.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
The bottom two tiers of Maslow's Hierarchy are a given. Food and oxygen are incredibly boring to list as needs, and I am usually bored by people who list them, especially in multiple spots out of the six things.

My education (and also as many opportunities to expand on it as possible)

My fervor for making the world a better place for as many people as possible, in as unorthodox of a way as possible. Right now I happen to have a thing for buying a single meal or drink or something for intermittent homeless people, because if I can't make their lives better, at least I can buy them a bit more comfortable waiting period until it is.

A plan (with or without the canal: Panama!).

I'm pretty sure I couldn't survive for long as a member of the middle class of the 21st century without an appreciation for irony.

Finally and most importantly, a healthy contempt for arbitrary authority structures.

And I would be lying if I said I wouldn't severely miss a computer with internet connection.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
I consider myself an anarchist first and foremost. Even if managers, officers, specialists, and leaders are necessary to organize and give vision to larger numbers of people in specific contexts, I wholeheartedly believe that, in any environment, these hierarchies should always be subject to criticism, review, and replacement, either as necessary or on a regular basis. Any agreements between parties should work to the mutual, best-informed, and most equally distributed benefit possible.

As I said, my chief value in all relationships is informed consent, in business as well as any of the relationships I might find here.

I hate capitalism even if I also don't hesitate to acknowledge its usefulness. Go go, gadget Red Scare!

To that end, my pet fields of study at this point are inverted totalitarianism and anti-intellectualism, two of the primary vehicles of oppression in America, and how they relate particularly to corporate and religious privilege. TL;DR class warfare, although I think "caste warfare" is more accurate.

In tandem, I'm always looking for better ways of being a better feminist and ally to QUILTBAG folks. Fuck the patriarchy, good and hard.

I toy around with DIY technology and waffle around my interests between cosplay, animatronics, drones, and home automation/security. These have all kind of been on the backburner recently, but I do a lot of reading on these while I round up the materials and confidence to actually go through with any of my plans.

I think about sex a lot. Who doesn't?

I also kind of want to go to Burning Man some year. It's about as far in the opposite direction of my general boundaries and comfort zone as possible without also voting Republican as well, but I think it could be incredibly entertaining and enlightening as well. I just...don't think I should go alone, based on the testimonials of my colleagues.

Edit: Also, why the hell is "Yes" getting listed so often as an incompatible answer for the question, "Do you have a current passport?" I understand and completely agree with not wanting to live in another country permanently, but it completely baffles me as to why it's so problematic for someone else to so much as have the option simply to visit other countries.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Introvert mode: Flailing around in my bathrobe at home, packing a book, an internet, and Oreos.

Extrovert mode: I go into the city, visit museums, and/or attend meetups until Introvert mode takes over again. Sometimes I go into Capitol Hill with friends and work on acquiring a taste for clubbing.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
First off, you HAVE to have more to say than "hi." That's a must. It almost feels weird and kind of presumptuous to say being on the wrong end of the demand-side of online dating, but literally the only messages I don't respond to are ones that have nothing to say that actually suggests they read anything here. If there's one (more) thing my profile openly states, other than that I'm a dude with a green response-rate bar like nearly every other dude you'll ever see on OKC, it's that I really like communication with effort in it. It's like a dance between brains. In the words of Captain Picard: "Engage."

On the offchance you're more intrigued than disturbed or offended by any of the above, and want to talk about any of it, or about anything at all, I promise you that I'll always put as much effort into a conversation as you're ready to return.

You're in, or want to start, a casual relationship/FWB deal. More specifically, if you're willing to help me learn more about ethical non-monogamy and kink. The less platonic, the better. :P

You want an additional party member for epic adventures of any kind. Tank, DPS, Support, name it! Hiking would be cool, but I know nothing about it. You should come around, slap me in the face with a stocked backpack, and drag me to Mt. Rainier so I can learn on the way.

Or if you just want to hang out and have a Netflix-and-cuddling time.

And if you have blue hair, I will probably adore you right away.

***
As an aside, it's also worth mentioning that I actually live in Woodinville. I know a lot of people here/our age in general don't drive often or even own cars, but my weekends are typically wide open and almost all of my past relationships have been long distance on the order of hundreds of miles, so a half-hour drive into the city to meet/carry on a relationship is not a problem at all for me, and frankly far better than I typically could hope for even if I do 100% of the driving. I just want to meet someone for whom 20 miles isn't a complete dealbreaker all by itself.
