My self-summary
I'm a one girl kind of guy and I'm not looking for anyone who's involved with someone else/still pining over someone else/trying to make someone else jealous.

I'll be honest; I'm a weird guy, and I'm not an egg that cracks easily, but I will when and if the right person comes along. I keep my feelings pretty close to my chest these days, but I'm cautiously hopeful of possibly meeting that one amazing woman that makes me forever lower my guard. If you're not extraordinarily unique and one-of-a-kind, I'm probably not going to be interested in you as anything other than a friend. Friends are good, too, though. Otherwise, I'm happy being alone.

I'm hoping to meet someone that I enjoy being around and have something in common with and go from there, and it seems daunting if you know how particular and eccentric I am. I can guarantee I'm not like anyone else you've ever met, and whether that's a good thing or not probably depends on your own perspective. I almost never message anyone on here, primarily because I just don't "get" most of the people I come across. (Reeeaaalllly sick of the duck faces in your pictures, ladies! Pursing your lips to make them look like a horse's ass is really not cute at all. But I digress...)

I'm intelligent and articulate, and I'm most attracted to others that are as well. I'll take brains over Barbies any day. If your idea of literature is the 50 Shades trilogy, I'm probably not going to like you. Like, at all.

I love movies, weekend getaways, good food, and I'm always open to new adventures. Music is a huge part of my life and career, so any interest in that is welcome. Friends often describe me as "quirky", "an old soul" and "comically cynical". I'm completely fascinated with the idea of fate and asking "what if...".

Basically, if you're looking for a bald, monosyllabic d-bag with an I.Q. of 20 and a soul-patch, then you're better off throwing a rock in any other direction because you're likely to hit one.

I'm not "country" by any stretch of the imagination. I should mention that in case you have a predisposition toward such things. Cowboy hats make me laugh, and "red dirt music" is downright loathsome. The charm of small-town life is not lost on me, however.
What I’m doing with my life
I landed my dream job producing a syndicated public TV music program when I was barely two years into college, so I made the tough decision to leave school but I've never regretted it. Since then, that opportunity led me to a great career in videography/television that I love and the occasional composition/production music-related endeavor. Just last year, I got my first credit in a feature film and even got to go to the premiere. I also run a small online record store specializing in rare and out-of-print titles. In my spare time, I like to travel whenever possible.
I’m really good at
Anything musical, of course. I can play mostly anything, or at least fake it relatively well. I write songs and make records whenever the spark hits me. I travelled all over the U.S. when I was younger for various musical endeavors. The difference between me and those other guys you know that play in crappy bands is that I actually know what I'm doing mechanically, mathematically and melodically.

I think I'm a great listener and friend. I genuinely like hearing other people's stories. I'm often the level-headed voice of reason who solves problems when friends are having issues. I often play devil's advocate not to change someone's mind about something, but to encourage them to question and explore why they stand for what they do.
The first things people usually notice about me
My blue eyes and my acerbic sense of humor, I think.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
A short list of some of my favorite recent-ish shows in no particular order include: Breaking Bad, Sherlock, Seinfeld and The Office. British comedies are good, too.

Given my profession, I'm well-versed in all kinds of music, even if I don't like it. And, believe me, there's a lot I don't like, but I'm tolerant.

Regarding personal enjoyment and listening preferences when I'm alone, I tend to gravitate toward British Invasion/British folk, obscure 60's psychedelia/pop/baroque/garage rock, old-school punk, arrogant French pop, old country, avant-garde crooners and some indie.

Recently, this girl told me I was "un-American" when I told her I've never been a fan of Creedance Clearwater Revival. I like Wilco and Tom Waits, though. A lot. They're American. So there's that.

Also, I'm not so myopic to argue that rap isn't a legitimate form of art of *some* sort, but it is NOT, in fact, MUSIC, despite whatever your booty-shaking friends may claim when they're loaded at a club.
The six things I could never do without
1. Everyone says family and friends, but it's true.
2. My pets
3. Music
4. I drive a lot, so I'd have to say my car. Or at least a car.
5. Diet Mountain Dew. It's like my coffee.
6. Um... soap? I'm a really clean person.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Life, death and the universe...

... and why no one gets that STEAL/STALE question right. And why, when someone does, it's counted as an unacceptable answer.
On a typical Friday night I am
Probably at a friend's house watching a movie or working. Possibly fighting crime as my masked alter-ego. You think I'm kidding.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I can bend spoons with my mind, but not forks. And if you've got a Spork, forget about it.
You should message me if
1. You are your own person, you have class, you think for yourself, and if you think we'd get along. I will probably NOT message anybody first. If I happen to, it's probably a safe bet that I think you're pretty amazing based on what little I have read and seen.

2. You don't type or text using ridiculous internet acronyms such as "c u l8r", or "wrud"... (Yes, my life IS pretty interesting, but I'm not big on providing quarter-hourly updates to someone that can't be troubled to type a cogent sentence.)... Also, please know the difference between "you're" and "your", as well as "to", "too" and "two". I don't have many pet peeves, but that's a big one. I can't truly get to know someone if their communicative skills aren't above grade-school level. I know this sounds judgmental, but there's no excuse for not having a primary language mastered as an adult human.
