My self-summary
I am looking to meet people with similar interests and make new friends. If a romantic relationship happens, that's just a bonus.

I would consider myself to be a pretty funny guy. My friends at my old job were constantly amused by me. My sense of humor is pretty dry/sarcastic. I can be extremely goofy sometimes. I make obscure pop culture (sometimes not-so-pop culture) quotes and references.

I'm a TV/movie geek; mostly sci-fi/fantasy. I will probably go to Dragon*Con every year as long as I live in Atlanta, and would most likely come back for it if I move elsewhere. I actually attend guest panels and stuff instead of just hanging out drinking (I don't drink).

I was in band and art classes in school, but have not played an instrument or done any serious art since then. I still think of myself as a creative person at heart. I want to get a drum set eventually when I have a place to put it and practice without causing noise complaints. Current art outlet is costume and prop making.

Halloween is my favorite holiday.

I enjoy bowling, pool (billiards), and miniature golf. I will not claim to be good at any of those.

I haven't been to Europe, but I've been to Egypt.
(update: going to London in May 2014)
What I’m doing with my life
I work in IT. I briefly considered culinary school, but decided that being a chef for a living is very different from enjoying cooking for myself, and is probably not the right job for me.

When I'm home alone, I'm usually either on my computer looking at various things on the internet or watching entire seasons of a TV series in only a couple of days. Lately I have preferred going out to staying home.

I work from home most days, so any chance to get out of the house after work is welcome. I'd really like to meet people who are up for going out on short notice (dinner, rock show, whatever)

I play music trivia almost every week at the same place.
I’m really good at
EVERYTHING!, being modest, and sarcasm

serious answer:
I guess my best skill would be cooking. I consider myself a good cook. I typically do not use recipes. I figure out how to make something and make my own version. I like to cook mostly international cuisine (Asian, Indian, Mexican, Middle Eastern, etc) I'd like to learn how to make sushi, but I don't know if I'd trust to eat raw fish I prepared myself.

I am also good with computers. I can build a computer from component parts.

I'm pretty crafty with making costume things, though I don't own nor know how to use a sewing machine.
The first things people usually notice about me
Possibly my voice. I've been told I talk loudly and my voice tends to carry. Physically, um... naturally black hair, full beard (usually), and a thin frame are my prominent features I guess.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
books: Tolkien, Douglas Adams, classic sci-fi/fantasy. I'll admit to not being an active reader. I have A.D.D. I've been thinking about trying audio books.

movies: crime caper movies (Usual Suspects, Snatch, Lock Stock, those type), comic movies, vampire movies that aren't Twilight, Kevin Smith stuff, Fight Club, Dodgeball, Anchorman, Shawn of the Dead, Idiocracy.. stuff like that

TV: Buffy, Angel, Firefly, Smallville, Supernatural, Scrubs, The League, House, Chopped, Top Chef, Star Trek (TNG, DS9, Voyager), True Blood, Arrested Development, Game of Thrones, Lost Girl, Orphan Black, Fringe, Archer, Venture Brothers.. I could keep adding to this. I work from home. I watch TV while working, hence I have watched a lot of things.

music: Protest the Hero, I am Ghost, Avenged Sevenfold, Strung Out, Iron Maiden, Bad Religion, Strike Anywhere, Rise Against, old Metallica, 80s rock, Bloc Party, The Faint, silly cover songs (usually punk/metal versions of songs you would not think of in those styles), rock arrangements of classical music or video game music. I'm open to new genres, but mostly rock-oriented stuff

food: Indian, Thai, Mexican, Middle Eastern, Persian, anything exotic, BBQ, burgers, pizza, steak, eggplant.. this could go on. I forgot pie (both dessert and savory kinds).
The six things I could never do without
in no order: good food, good music, air conditioning, comfortable place to sleep, my brother, and probably the internet

also, the numbers 1 - 6. Seriously, would you want to go through life unable to quantify anything less than 7?
I spend a lot of time thinking about
..what I would go back to school for if I decide to change careers interesting things to try cooking at home
costumes
On a typical Friday night I am
..trying to get people to go out to eat somewhere good, hanging out at a bar but not drinking, playing Magic: the Gathering (its a nerdy card game. You get bonus points with me if you knew that already), or staying at home scouring Netflix for something cool to watch.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Since I've already mentioned that I don't drink, I'll explain why. There is a history of alcoholism in my family. My father was an alcoholic. It ruined my relationship with him, and my parents relationship with each other. He died of liver failure. I also have tried many alcoholic drinks and don't really like the taste of any. I'm not uncomfortable around drinking, even really drunk people, but I have no intentions of ever starting to drink myself. That being said, I still join friends at bars and can have a perfectly good time sober.
