Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I am silly, cerebral, and sentimental.
Edit: and now, thanks to OkCupid, I'm married to an amazing
Malaysian girl. This profile is an archive.
I have some stuff on YouTube. This is a good way to learn what
makes me tick:
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I like changing jobs and locations every few years. I like
startups. I've worked in video production, music, politics, and a
few other things. I've worked on every side of the YouTube
Leisure-wise, my main interests are guitar
, hang gliding
, and Reddit
. I have a friendly ball python. I
love dogs but don't have one. I will get on the ground to play with
a dog in any locale. In the Queen's presence!
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
• Asking provocative questions on guided tours when nobody else can
think of anything to say.
I walked past a Pontiac and by the time I got home I was
"Apt icon to panic anti-cop coatpin, tip a con into cap." - An
optic caption–not a pic. I can top it on a PC.
• I may not be "really good" at hang gliding, but I usually

For an instant, in the reflection in a store window, they thought
they saw a tall figure in a black cloak standing behind me, with
his thumb up my butt.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
• Check out my Pandora station. It makes up about half my music
• For books, I'm a major Marcel Proust
fanboy. Beyond that obsession, I
like other fiction that requires chewing, from Moby Dick to House
of Leaves. I read plenty of non-fiction too but not in book form.
• For movies and TV I have really broad tastes, highbrow and
conventional. I'll shout out Breaking Bad, since everybody does. I
don't have a TV but I stream a-plenty.
• I was vegetarian for a long time. Now I'm an omnivorous gourmand,
so pass the farfooblies, if they exist. I am an espresso
snob and a whiskey
enthusiast, but a
wine philistine, so you can always throw that in my face.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
^ This headline is sofa king trite, but my favorite things:
Money, This American Life, Fresh Air, the comforting voice of Scott
don't know all the 2-letter words, we can still play, but let's not
keep score, hm?
• HM: 7 points.
• Road trips
I've been to all 50 states! They're nice. You know, trees.
• Knowing many different kinds of people.
• I've already mentioned my guitar. I play the kind of music in my
Pandora station. Have you checked that out yet? Change your life.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
I've been thinking about Sultan Mehmed II's 1453 sack of
Constantinople. The results were ironic.
I am continually occupied with knowledge acquisition. If you're
incurious, I will bore you. If, however, you want to know about the
enzyme mutation that causes the unique color pattern of Siamese
cats, let's hang out.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
On Easter morning when I was 10 years old, in my blue blazer, cream
trousers and white Nikes, the family having just returned from
church, plastic eggs still hidden, my mother directed her son and
daughter onto the rocks for a photo. I leapt to a patch of leaves
I'd stood many times before, and all the family froze at the sound
of a desperate squealing beneath my feet. It were the dying breaths
of a bunny under the ivy. I was become death, destroyer of
We buried it later that day, after a brief funeral, on the side of
the house, in a cardboard jewelry box about 6-inches deep. Casket
by Nordstrom. Popsicle stick cross. Three mornings later the hole
was dug out and empty; the likely work of a fox. I learned my
lesson. Bury bodies deep.

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
I tend to have a thing for short-to-average-height girls. I have no
racial preference. There's also something about the magic
combination of boots and a skirt which melts the caramel lozenge
between my lungs. That's what it feels like anyway.
Be kind to the elderly. When I see a girl get lovey over old people
she thinks are cute, I say to myself, that's a good woman. I'd be
lucky to have that one.
