My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm one of those guys who grew up rational, stoic and pragmatic, so I went to business school. But then I realized I was more of an idealist and romanticist. The bridge between the two was filled with cynicism and irony, but now I'm starting to really get to find my earnest and sincere self.

I'm an INTP, but I have a strong hunch that I'm classified wrong.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Finally getting around to running my first 5K. I was so psyched about the Color Run, until I found out it was a For-Profit thing. As an MBA, that probably shouldn't bother me as much as it does.

Living somewhat Byronic-ally but losing faith in nihilism. Learning to tune down the snark and sarcasm, and trying to make earnest sincerity fashionable.

I often may be reading several books at a time.

A few friends and I are trying to make it through Pittsburgh Magazine's top 30 restaurants. I'm getting good at budgeting.
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.

-Reading several books at a time and keeping their internal plots and characterizations in place.
-Trendwatching (in an advertising sense, not sadly--fashion)
-Making low-brow pop culture seem more important than it actually is.
-Finding the most ridiculous or absurd item on the menu.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
If I'm being truthful, probably that I'm a bit of a hobbit. But I'm told I make up for it through my smile, blue eyes and sense of humor. I usually smell good too. Personality-wise, I'm pretty nice, honest, earnest and humorous. Travels fast between serious and laid back. I've been told I've got a nice balance of masculine and feminine at just the right times.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

Books: I'm currently on a nonfiction kick; I've beaten my way through a fair share of the classics and I've recently read enough postmodernism and metafiction to choke something. Everything became so "experimental" and pretentious. So onto post-postmodernism! And prayers for a better name.

Recently: My Struggle Vol. 3, The Bend of the World, and some lowbrow stuff you'd probably be embarrassed to see me with.

I like my comics and genre fiction post-modern (or deconstructionist or post-apocalyptic or meta) but my non-fiction creative and honest.

Authors: Vonnegut, Philip K. Dick, Baudelaire, Umberto Eco, Christopher Moore, John Barth, Nabokov, Hume, Knausgaard, and many others.

Movies: I'll watch anything weird (Jodorowsky, Bunuel, Depeux, etc) and watch anything from someone with a serially hip repertoire like Tarantino, Coens, Boyle, Kaufman, Payne, Jarmusch, Aronfosky, Wenders, Haneke, etc. --A bunch of older stuff too, but it's not as topical.

Ex.) Hot Fuzz, The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford, The Last Temptation of Christ, Harold and Maude, Stalker, he Thing, Point Break, The Order, El Topo, The Fountain, Ravenous, Brick, Revolver, The Darjeeling Limited, Synedoche NY, Diving Bell and the Butterfly, CQ, Charade, The Thin Man Series, American Werewolf in London

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.

Slightly more obscure shows--Bored to Death, Wilfred, The Prisoner, Three Sheets, Fishing with John, Extras, Brew Masters, Disinformation, 30 Days, Utopia, Da Vinci's Demons, John from Cincinnati, South Park, Skins, Adventure Time, Broad City.

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

Comics: I love the medium. I work at times in the medium. I like both indie books and some of the mainstream stuff. I've actually boycotted Marvel and the DC mostly at this point. I like my superheroes slightly kinky.

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.

I'm also a fairly strong beer snob. I started out with beer as I thought it would be less pretentious than wine. I was wrong and became a monster . Not that I drink often, but if I do, I'm terribly partial to Belgian Trappist beers or weird abominably hoppy microbrews that Europeans would called abortions.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Days of Outlandish Decadence. days of simplicity

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.

My new life statement is try and live in a state of Véjà Du (or Vuja De) at least once a day (experience something you know you haven't experience before, or to see something familiar with fresh eyes).
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
When Robin Williams died, it made my tear up a bit, not because I liked his films that much--but because my favorite joke (Pagliacci the clown, was a truth, rather than an absurdity).

Self-Improvement through adventure;
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Most likely hanging out with my droogs. I don't like having a standard hangout. I'm more into trying something new, rather than cultivating a reputation for having "the usual".
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I was told that my drag persona would be a manic pixie dream girl. That's a hell of a compliment, but I don't know why.

My family has the worst family crest imaginable.

I have a pretty strong aversion toe Jellyfish.

I kind of actually liked "Anthem" by Ayn Rand. I also liked a reality tv show once called "The Mole".

One of my best friends is a Charles Bukowski, so it's ok if I tell jokes about Charles Bukowskis' as vile and drunk misogynists.
