My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
"..It's really simple, people are selfish fuckers who don't give a shit about anyone but themselves. And you're one of them too, so relax..."

Full-time knowledge-fiend, part-time musician, quarter-time eremetic, I seek the low-key, the intense, the ridiculous, and the sublime on equal terms ( a typical Aquarius I suppose).

I enjoy ephemera of all kinds, but I seem to have a knack for interests that are now ridiculously commonplace; po-mo analysis, "good" bad movies, musical colonialism, etc. To be honest, I'm kind of tired of it, or to quote the guy behind the other guy: "I'm so far ahead of I'm behind you."

I guess the bone-basic core of a personal "summary" for me is best iterated by a wayward OKCupid Bodhisattva whose profile caught my attention:
"I want to start a revolution. In the mean time...I drink."
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Working at a fun (albeit not so high-paying) and popular establishment, Catering to my highly vocal cat-rabbit-pig hybrid's every whim, reading about dead people who lived a long time ago in a far away place, making/updating/deleting humorous sonic creations, and pondering entrance/exit strategies.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Calling bullshit, digesting it and then regurgitating it as a less "bullshit" form of bullshit.
Major-raging on the four stringed motherfucker.
Getting those one or two trivia questions right that makes the team win by a narrow margin; usually involving dead people who lived a long time ago in a far away place.
Singing harmony.
Being decisively and compassionately adjudicative in common settings.
Oh yes, making soup. I love soup...mmmm...
(I almost forgot, making basil pesto as well... mmmm...)
(...and two more things: elipses and parentheticals, I'm good at those too...)
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I used to have a bunch of personal historiography accompanied by hyperlinks here, but I realize now that shit doesn't really matter unless you are a musician/artist/etc. (which you obviously would understand if you were one right? except you're not? right?}
Instead I'll just post shit that interests me in the moment (or personal long-time favorites), and hopefully you may or may not enjoy it: movies, music, random BS, etc.
For your pleasure:

RIP Chris Squire: One of the most sonically influential major ragers on the 4 string mofo, and a damn fine harmony vocalist as well.
Prog rock may not be your thing, but this guy was one of the architects of modern electric bass playing. His finest hour (IMO):

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
hot water
toilet paper
"the arts" (music, visual arts, film, etc.)
victuals
my ability to think and feel
and of course, a good hoppy ale
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
this
this
and this
I don't spend too much time thinking about this unless I'm looking at some (update: almost ALL) of your profiles.

and of course...
Wes Anderson
Haruki Murakami
The National
"The Cohen Brothers"
TED Talks
NPR,
...and why so many of you fudge your age and/or your location with nary a (or somewhat buried) qualification. C'mon gals, this shit's hard enough as it is, moreso for you, right?
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Hmm... I'll have to get back to this one since my Friday night dynamic has changed quite a bit.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
If you wanna hang out and play/make music, talk about dead people who lived a long time ago in a far away place, or perhaps do both at the same time? Or maybe if you just wanna hang out and discuss the weirdness that is goin' on.

Oh yes, and as always, if you like the cut of my jib (or topgallant or lateen...). I almost forgot to mention chess, beer, discussion of "what-if" scenarios, gardening strategies, and anything pertaining to food and food making. I love to learn; I love to teach...
