26-year old human male and aspiring physician, half-Arab who can't speak Arabic worth a damn (but fluent-ish in French, which comes in handy exactly never), plays guitar (formerly saxophone, piano), fences, likes science, video games, reading, cooking, redditing. I graduated from WashU in St. Louis in 2011, in biology. I'm originally from SF but I moved to St. Louis after college, where I live in a house with four of my favorite people in the world and two of my favoritest dogs. Our beagle is Lucille Bluth in dog form, the other is a incredibly sweet, fat German shepherd who is still working out the fact that he's gigantic.
I'll be the first to admit that I'm a total goofball, and extremely outgoing. My sense of humor vacillates between bizarre and abstract, bitingly sarcastic and sometimes just boyish to a degree that borders on caricature. I indulge my imagination whenever possible, and I have a penchant for embarking on curious projects that occasionally go unfinished (case in point: a tabletop forge that I am gradually constructing from a large soup can).
In essence, I might be your doctor someday, but I'll still be a kid at heart.
Oh. And er... my name is Sam. Hi. :D
I find the solutions to all the world's problems each morning, and forget them as soon as I step out of the shower.
I also have a very large voice that projects a long way, so it is likely that you'll hear me before you see me.
Movies: I like whimsical or mildly demented psychological comedies like Office Space, The Science of Sleep, The Truman Show, and Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind. On top of that I love scifi and fantasy films, like The Matrix (just the first one, not those crap sequels), Star Wars, and rather a lot of superhero movies, come to think of it. Namely the Batman and Iron Man trilogies. Lord of the Rings (the extended editions, naturally). The Simon Pegg/Nick Frost fare (i.e. Shaun of the Dead, Hott Fuzz). I also enjoy documentaries, both about nature and culture. I loved Exit Through the Gift Shop -- I'm still trying to figure out if Mr. Brainwash is an elaborate Borat-style prank being played on the art world by Banksy.
Shows: Firefly, House of Cards, Doctor Who, Sherlock, Archer, Arrested Development, and as of recently, Veronica Mars. If you couldn't tell, Netflix Instant Watch is my jam. Also, nature documentaries like Planet Earth or Planet Ocean regularly blow my mind.
Music: I'm a DJ for my university's radio station, so I'm possessed of a certain unquenchable thirst for new music. The list of "music I like" is long and ever-changing. Jazz and blues predating 1970, and then some modern contemporary jazz and fusion. Blues rock. Just... any blues rock, modern or classic. Black Keys, White Stripes, Muddy Waters, John Lee Hooker, Howlin' Wolf, Buddy Guy, Stevie Ray Vaughan, ZZ Ward, you name it, I probably like it. Also I enjoy some electro, glitch, trip-hop and dubstep. Daft Punk, Justice, The Toxic Avenger, Zeds Dead, Massive Attack, Portishead, UNKLE, Glitch Mob and so on. As for hip-hop, Jay-Z, a bit of Kanye, Chiddy Bang, Childish Gambino, Watsky, Das Racist, various other indie hip-hop artists and a healthy measure of nerdcore rap (see: MC Frontalot). Also, Tom Waits. He's the most irresistibly hard-to-place shade of weird, both in lyrical content and sound.
Food: I love to cook. My mom has taught me well in the art of middle eastern cuisine, and my dad, being a masterful griller, has shown me the right way around a steak. I love trying and making new things, and I'll attempt any recipe I find interesting, though usually not without some minor tweaks and alterations. I seem to have a particular weakness for Ethiopian fare -- injera might be the world's most underrated utensil. I'm more recently becoming an afficionado of Filipino cuisine. Fair warning, I like spicy things, and I am being very serious when I say spicy. The secret ingredient in my hummus is half a dozen whole habaneros. Whole. Not de-veined or de-seeded. I'm sure my abiding love of capsaicin is doing irreparable damage to my digestive system, but until that catches up with me, it hurts so good. I also, for my own amusement, like to sometimes turn my kitchen into a kind of Frankenstein-esque laboratory wherein I cobble together willfully awful monstrosities for the purposes of horrifying the townsfolk. Pizzas with hot dogs baked into the crust, or a crust made entirely of meat, or topped with poutine gravy, curly fries and cheese curds... I've created some truly bizarre pizzas, come to think of it. I should note that one of my favorite subreddits is /r/shittyfoodporn. I should maybe stay off there for a while...
Video games, martinis, books, the internet, my friends, and an tremendous amount of coffee.
I've mentally engineered a functional suit of powered armor, but I'm no physicist, so I need someone else to come up with a miniaturized fusion reactor to power it. If you can hook that up, get at me.
Also, Michael Bublé is my guilty, guilty pleasure. I sing his stuff in the shower. Naked. DON'T TELL ANYONE.
...Oh, MESSAGE. Um. If you enjoy video games and books, have a discerning taste for whiskey and/or beer, can appreciate a good joke and a bad pun, can talk turkey about the hard sciences (or at least be willing to listen to me rave from time to time), like -- no, LOVE! -- to cuddle, and can accept the fact that if you're possessed of a particular smallness, I might pick you up and carry you around. I measure my weightlifting milestones not so much in pounds or kilograms, but in multiples of the mass of small people I know.
