My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
To say music is my life is an understatement. I live through and for the stuff and have done so for over a decade.

I'm a Portland native (East Side) living in Eugene while studying... something at the University of Oregon.

Other than on a stage, or when I'm with my friends, I'm kinda shy and introverted, some might say downright aloof. But something about the lights, stage and action brings out my inner rock star. Still, it takes me a little bit to warm up to a stranger. If I don't know you very well, I might be a little quiet, but get me talking about something I have a lot to say about (music, writing, nerdiness/geekiness) and I might not stop XD

I'm working on cultivating new friendships at this point in time, but casual dates with interesting people also sounds particularly appealing. I don't believe there are such things as "leagues"; there is only mutual attraction. We're all different, so why standardize and stratify?

As the stresses of life plague me and my social circle, I'd like to meet someone light-hearted and carefree- at least on the surface. It can be difficult for me to let my guard down since I've been on the receiving end of a number of unsavory relationships, but I'm not flighty. I want to have -fun- with somebody. I want to BUILD a relationship; even if it starts intense, I don't believe in telling someone I love them in the first week or even in the first six months. I have to truly mean it, and that means getting to know them. The adventure is the journey, not deciding you already know the road. "Only one condition: it has to be amazing." Once said a certain doctor...

I write music constantly, and I love playing my guitar(s) every day. My favorite band is The Mars Volta, though I have many other second favorites including Rush, Pearl Jam, Smashing Pumpkins, Hot Water Music, Bear vs Shark, At The Drive-In, The Decemberists, The Dear Hunter, Biffy Clyro, and Muse. I would jump on the chance to see any of them in concert! I'm also currently working on putting together a band of my own. Feel free to check us out at facebook.com/rightlaneendsrocks.

Speaking of which, our EP is now available at rightlaneends.bandcamp.com for $5. Check it out if you've got the time!

Attempting to eat healthier has made me pretty creative in the kitchen. I can whip up a lot of things out of whatever ingredients I can find, and I have an adventurous palette. I'm an XBOX vet, though I recently set down the controller in favor of, well, having money to spend on better things. However, I'm working on transitioning to the PC, as well as hanging around with competitive Smash Brothers players.

I wouldn't call myself blessed with the gift of gab. I'm easily impressed by others with silver tongues. Mine attempts to sabotage my sentences whenever it gets a chance, so I try to put a lot of thought into what I say before I say it. Try as I might, it still doesn't always come out in the right way, order, or occasionally, language. When all else fails, I try to make jokes and inject humor into nearly every situation. I'd much rather laugh about something than to be deadpan all the time.

Warning: I pun a lot.

TL;DR- I guitar, I art, I geek, I blend.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Surviving college while very seriously trying to put together a progressive/punk rock band.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Guitar. I can write some mean riffs, if I do say so myself. I can play along with just about anything, just give me a key (or not, I can usually figure it out after the first few bars)! Improvisation: culinary, musical, general. I find creative solutions to everyday problems, and I look way more comfortable wearing a guitar than most anything else.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Glasses, bizarre personality, hair.
I grow out my hair every other year to donate to cancer patients. I've been doing this since my 11 year old cousin died of brain cancer.
I often try to be funny in a Douglas Adams-y sort of way.

"Does that guitar have stickers on it?"
"I thought you were (insert name of doppelgänger that apparently everyone I meet has of me)!"
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books: The Salmon of Doubt, The Rogue Squadron Series, Heir to the Empire Trilogy, Pendragon, The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, The Long, Dark Tea Time of the Soul, The Da Vinci Code, Saga, The Engineer Trilogy, Illium, various things my friends have written.

Movies: The Men Who Stare at Goats, Airplane, To Boldly Flee, Return of the Pink Panther (Peter Sellers was the best Clouseau), Young Frankenstein, Die Hard, Ghost Writer, The Island, Star Wars, Star Trek, Serenity, Kick Ass, Zombieland, Shaun of the Dead, Tucker and Dale vs. Evil, Vertigo, Cloud Atlas, Wreck-It Ralph... others

Shows: My newest addition is definitely Attack On Titan. 30 Rock, Burn Notice, Dr. Who, Stargate, Firefly, Parks and Recreation, Battlestar Galactica, Deadliest Warrior, Colbert Report, Daily Show, Grimm, Soul Eater, Sherlock, Game Of Thrones, and I have a weird soft spot for Jeopardy. I don't watch a whole lot of tv anymore, especially while in Eugene, so if Internet shows count: Atop the Fourth Wall, Nostalgia Critic, Todd in the Shadows, Red vs. Blue, Zero Punctuation, Freeman's Mind.

If podcasts count, I've become a fan of Welcome To Night Vale... as I was destined.

Music: The Mars Volta, anything punk/progressive, Native, We Versus the Shark, Cinemechanica, At The Drive-In, The Dear Hunter, STP, Portugal the Man (though only their first album), This Town Needs Guns, Bear vs Shark, Mystery Skulls, George Watsky, Biffy Clyro, Five Iron Frenzy, Rush, Eric Clapton, Led Zeppelin, Pearl Jam, Rage Against The Machine, The Foxy Shazam, New Politics, Smashing Pumpkins, Silversun Pickups, The Decemberists, Radiohead, Muse, Cursive, Kings and Vagabonds (gotta support local talent!)

I like sonic diversity, raw musicianship, odd time signatures, and for an artist to refuse to be white noise. Crossover country, R&B, and acoustic duos do not accomplish this. I still have a special place in my heart for classic rock (and country music from before 2003) and I'm starting to branch out into rap and Drum & Bass. If it can't keep me awake on a long car drive, it will definitely not be on my iPhone (with exceptions- see above qualifiers).

I'm not a fan of anything "Hot Topic Produced" including Asking Brides, Black Veil Horizon, Bring me Alexandria, Pierce the Dance Floor, Blood on the Veil, or whatever the heck kids are listening to these days. I remain opinionated, but I'm not above giving things a shot.

Food: I'm practically a goat. As long as it isn't an onion, saturated with garlic, or wasabi-infused, we're probably good.

Games...?: Bastion, Ace Combat 04, Ace Combat 5, Journey, Age of Empires, Starcraft, FTL, Flotilla, Halo, COD/MW/BlOps, Star Wars: Rogue Squadron/Starfighter, Rocksmith, SSX, Smash Bros, Syphon Filter, Hydro Thunder... I think I lost you at Ace Combat 04, so let's just say that I like a lot of these and while I enjoy the "candy", the games with creative storylines, wicked memorable levels/gameplay, LOCAL multiplayer, and unbreakable immersion leave the best impressions on me.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1: Music, including the ability to write and perform it
2: Those stress-free days
3: Family
4: Friends
5: Social interaction
6: Basic human necessities
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
The past and the future. Never really the present, but you never really do think about the present, do you? It's always immediately in the past or future. Weird, eh?

Gender and identity are becoming the torch of my generation. I'm admittedly behind on some of this stuff and acknowledge that I can be/am largely ignorant. Please do not take it as a sign that I'm prejudiced. I am accepting of all lifestyle choices/predilections that don't actively harm other human beings without their consent. I'm ignorant because I don't think any of it matters so long as I treat you like a human being, regardless of your identity. If you happen to not be a human being, but some other kind of intelligent life form with similar core values, please fill me in on the appropriate way of addressing to your species. Point is, you are who you are. If you also believe in accepting one another and politely explaining when someone doesn't immediately understand the situation, we'll get along.

As far as my torch goes, I am adamantly anti-censorship. It dismays me how many people are willing to give up so much for the sake of their paranoia. I do not believe in "trigger warnings," and I expect people to speak their minds. Offense is a crucial step to understanding, compromise and acceptance. I believe that noble organizations have been hijacked by radicals that only drag their movements down. We are all still learning.

Do expect me to ask questions. It's how I find out things are grounded in reality, how you'll help me understand more clearly, and just how I operate as a skeptical being.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Spending time with the social circle or the band- possibly playing a show. The bar scene has opened up to me in the last year, and I'm still getting used to that. I've become involved in several pen and paper games recently as well (Pathfinder, DnD, Star Wars, and a custom Pokémon DnD. This stuff is the bomb), so there's never a dull moment.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm more or less an open book, but the devil's in the details.

Body hair: I have it. I have it on my chest, I have it on my back. I have mixed feelings about it. On one hand, I'm actually kind of proud about it (why the hell else did I eat all that spinach?). On the other, society's ideal male is as hairless as a twelve year old, and society and I butt heads regularly. So please, steer clear until I'm broken by the system and cave to the media's standards, unless, well, you're fine with it.

Bastion is the only video game that has ever made me physically shed a tear.

I have Seasonal Affective Disorder that shows up between November and March. In particular, November is a consistently bad month for me. Murphy's Law seems to govern my life for that twelfth of a year. In spite of all that, fall and winter are my favorite seasons- wind, rain and snow are totally my elements!

Questions, comments, death threats?

You're an awkward-but-lovable intelligent, agnostic/atheist, artistic vagabond with a unique haircut that's possibly dyed, tattoos, piercings, heterochromatic eyes, and freckles; that plays bass guitar, DnD, MtG, and Super Smash Bros; between the ages of 19 and 24, and the heights of 4'11" to 6'2". But I'm willing to make exceptions XD
