My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
A friend of mine recently said, "That's you, Emil: always thinking." Another friend of mine who's known me for many years once said, "Looking at everything from a million angles? That's just Emil." That probably sums me up about as well as anything.

(Almost) everything interests me. I've been known to simultaneously believe contradictory things, and I've also been known to have huge shifts of perspective that make me change everything in my life. However, I think I'm starting to settle down a little (not a lot) - there are some things that I find I always like in my life, and I'm learning to cultivate them better to weather the changes. That said, some of the things I thought were forever weren't, so I keep an open mind and try not to grasp.

Before you think I spend all my time living in my head, having a body is way awesome. Dancing and walking and biking and all the other great stuff you can only do with a body are high on my list. Especially dancing.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Settling into a new job that seems to promise both challenge and meaning while I figure out what I want to do now that I have the life I dreamed of in my 20's. Along the way, I'm riding my bike, dancing, playing nerd games, eating out, cooking in, drinking and brewing beer, and a whole bunch of other stuff.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
nerd stuff, playing it cool, making a good impression, remembering weird trivia I've read/heard, remembering weird non-trivial things I've read/heard.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
The first thing I know people notice is my name, but I don't know about anything else. I get lots of compliments on my t-shirts.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

I've heard it was John Lee Hooker who said that there were two kinds of music, good and bad. I subscribe to that philosophy in music and pretty much everywhere else. I'll give anything a shot once, and most stuff twice; trying new things is as important to me as enjoying old favorites, so I particularly love getting introduced to other people's old favorites.

A few things that have been getting a lot of play at the moment:
- Cannot get enough of Brandon Graham's sci-fi comics; King City was amazing, Multiple Warheads: Alphabet to Infinity was amazing, Prophet was amazing.
- Enjoying the heck out of Choker, a cyberpunk-ish crime noir collaboration between Ben McCool and Ben Templesmith, my current interruption to catching up to a_bean_in_pdx in Fables.
- Prose reading right now is The Life and Times of the Thunderbolt Kid, a Baby Boomer memoir with a refreshing amount of perspective and laughs.
- I love cartoons and think Adventure Time is one of the best things ever.
- Musical tastes have been all over the place lately - gone back to some Brahms symphonies between instrumental hip hop from the likes of Jay Dee and Pete Rock and Necro and also getting in some metal from Red Fang and Sodom.
- On near-constant overload from all of the delicious food Portland has on offer.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
everything. I'd delete the "about" if they'd let me and leave it at that.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
dancing like there's ass in my pants, watching cartoons with my lady or movies or Starcraft or who knows what with other friends. I used to spend a lot of Friday nights at my local, but I moved across the river and it shut down a few weeks later. Need to find a new local!
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm poly and live with my primary partner, a_bean_in_pdx, which continues to be totally awesome.
