Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm Eddie! I'm a nerd, and I love learning in equal measure about
the natural world and mankind's history of folly. I love nature,
though I don't see it enough, and I love the internet even though I
see too much of it. I live for myself and the people close to me,
but as a recovering punk rocker I still have a rather dim view of
society as a whole. I made the mistake of trying to rewrite my
profile without getting a proper night's sleep, so excuse me if
this makes me sound like a pretentious twit. Maybe I'll fix it
Take note: I identify as polyamorous, and currently girl with whom
I'm completely in love. That said, I'm still eager to meet new
friends and lovers here in San Francisco. It's the spirit of the
city, after all :)

What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
After graduating from college, I spent two years as a math tutor
for snotty rich kids. Two years ago, I decided that I was tired of
having a boss, and I quit so I could try my luck as a day
Today I earn my living playing the stock market, which is fun but
boring. I spend my time making movies, which is stressful but
exciting. The studio that I'm a part of just premiered its first
feature at the end of 2013, and we should be finishing our next
project this year. You can check out the trailer for our first
movie here: www.struggledreagansfilm.com
One day, I hope to earn enough to be truly independent, so I can
pursue my dreams. What would that entail? I don't rightly know!
Maybe I'll open an Oddity Shop? Start my own toy company? Build an
airship and sail around America? Maybe all three, or maybe
something else entirely! I'll cross that bridge when I get to it.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
-Spouting off random facts on a wide variety of topics (Thanks
-Climbing things (Rocks, trees, the sides of buildings, etc)
-Making it awkward.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I love to read, and I do it an awful lot. I've been on a bit of a
non-fiction/history kick lately. Right now I'm reading Edward
Gibbon's The Decline
and Fall of the Roman Empire
, and trying to re-learn all the
high school Latin that I forgot while I was in college.
Some of my all time favorite books are:
Demonic Males: Apes and the Origins of Human Violence
's Song of Ice and Fire
series, anything by Thomas Pynchon
, The Illuminatus
, and the comics of Alan Moore
. I also love Franz Kafka
, Lewis Carrol
I really love music too, and my tastes fluctuate constantly. I
develop a new obsession every week, or every month at least. My
preferences tend towards the fast, the loud, and the weird, but I
can appreciate quiet beauty, as well.
I only recently discovered the awesomeness that is rap music, after
being a steadfast punk/metalhead for most of my life. The Coup
, Wu-Tang Clan
, Kanye West
(I know), and
have a place on my iPod now.
Old favorites include: Star Fucking Hipsters
, Operation Ivy
, Anything with
, etc etc, and
oh yeah... BLACK
My favorite movie is Primer
, because it's so hard to
understand that you can watch it 10 times, and still not be sure
what happened. I also really enjoy basically anything from
, Stanley Kubrick
, as well as Charlie Kauffman
and Michel Gondry
Also, I love all food. Food is delicious. I tried to be a
vegetarian, but couldn't keep my edge. If you can help me stay
vegetarian/vegan, all the better.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Well hmmm... Gotta have my laptop and my iPhone, because I would
shrivel up and die without my technological umbilical cord. I'll
also want my synthesizers (for computer music) and an acoustic
guitar (for regular music). The Sun is pretty important, too,
seeing as it's the ultimate source of all life on earth, and
because I love a long walk on a nice sunny day. Finally: I have a
bit of an overactive imagination, and I just wouldn't be myself
without it, so that's gotta be number six.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
I tend spend a lot of time concocting ridiculous plans and schemes
that somehow never see the light of day. My current improbable
fantasy is building my own steampunk-style airship, and sailing it
across the country (or at least to Burning Man, ha)
Lately, however, I've been thinking more and more about the future.
What will I be doing 10 years from now? What will be going on in
the world? Will America fix its problems and become a world leader
again, or will our entire government collapse, plunging our country
into Mad-Max style chaos? I'm not sure I like where things are
heading, but I'm sure the journey will be anything but
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Out at some club or dive, hanging with friends, or hunched over my
pirated copy of Adobe Premiere, editing movies.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
These days are (mostly) behind me, but I've ingested more or less
every recreational chemical known to man.
I'm sure it was a good time, but I somehow find that I can't
remember most of it. =P
