My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I mean well. I try to get as much laughter in my life as possible. I struggle to be as earnest, sincere and optimistic as possible when the default setting is to be ironic and cynical. I try to like as many things as possible, and not be too contrarian in my tastes--even though most of them are a bit eccentric.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Trying to work out the balance of living simply, but still having outlandish experiences.

Pondering if self-improvement is the goal of life, or merely a cultural fetish.

I work as a project manager in marketing. I'll never understand why I thought the field would be shamanistic. Blame the advertising?
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Having a sense of beer snobbery that goes down smooth.
*I think italics are super classy.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I often have little to no sense of shame for an introvert.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books: I read mostly non-fiction right now, but that comes after years of binge reading postmodernism, metafiction, comics and big fancy New Yorker writers.

Movies: I used to list a bunch of hip auteurs, but I'll just say that I'll watch anything that's a bit off center. I wish more directors were like Edgar Wright, and I'm really excited about Mad Max: Fury Road. Everything else is coffee and cigarettes talk.

Shows: Yes, I do like ArrestedSixDeadWireBreakingMad. Thanks for asking! But only up until when the Cylons/Tribbles/Tardis jumped the Smoke Monster and found out that it had St. ElseLupus, then the family moved to Mexico due to Winter Coming.

Anyone notice how these shows star sociopaths and psychopaths? More than a little disconcerting.

That being said, I'll most likely refuse to to watch a series until I know that it's going to wrap in a satisfactory manner. Too many Carnivale's for one lifetime.

I'll stop pretending, my favorite show is Killer Karoake

Music: There's very little I don't like. But nothing puts me in a trance like Dr. Hook and the Medicine Show, Nick Cave, Dan Deacon, Warren Zevon, Kool Keith, Ennio Morricone, Klezmer-style music. I also love musicians with gravely voices like Captain Beefheart, Frank Zappa, Tom Waits, Honus Honus (of Man Man), and Leonard Cohen. Even though he's not a musician, Clive Barker's voice makes me swoon.

Food: I'm the kind of person who like's to try something new for the experience of it, as well as trying to understand our wonderful sense of taste. The Modernist Cuisine thrills me, even if it is a bit decadent. I've tried tripe more than a few times, and liked it on the third try (I wasn't a fan of the texture the first two times). But mushroom flavored ice cream? Spoon. A few times a year I'm awfully tempted to go vegetarian. But I need to have ethically gleaned foie gras first.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Proust moments or Peak Experiences. Ambition, Connectedness.

A few thought-provoking ideas, perhaps a tasty buzz and I'm fine to survive.

An adventure now and again lets me thrive. As well as self-improvement attempts, learning to master everything and I'll be self-actualized.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
If self-improvement is the goal of life, or merely a cultural fetish.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
I'm more into trying something new, rather than cultivating a reputation for having "the usual".

As such, several friends and I are working on the 2013/2014 Pittsburgh Best Restaurants list.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I may not know French, but it doesn't stop me from trying to find the cheapest way to buy bande dessines and google translate them at 2am in the morning.

My family has the worst family crest imaginable.

I kind of actually liked "Anthem" by Ayn Rand.
