My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
My educational motto, throughout my life, has been breadth not depth. This wasn't a conscious decision, it just worked out that way. I've done a whole lot of things in not a whole lot of time. I'm an Indie Rock Nerd, NPR junkie, and modern day cartographer. Once upon a time I was a community organizer, but I decided I don't like my paycheck being tied to my politics. I've worked in 39 states in the past 36 months. I'm aiming for 50 in 50.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I am perpetually seeking out awkwardly named ethnic restaurants. (Pho puns don't count.)

As far as paying the bills goes, I make maps. Or, more specifically, I drive around collecting and encoding the information that goes onto the maps. It's a pretty cool job. I get to travel a bunch, and play with fancy high-tech toys. I'm getting ready to go back to school for a related degree, but that's still a little ways off.

Beyond that, I'm a former community organizer, and I still have a great deal of passion for, and drive to do political work. At the moment though, I don't have anything particularly engaging me and commanding my energies and attentions. Keeping an eye open for the next cause to put my time into. Past campaigns include things like traveling around NY with a 15 foot tall wheelchair, becoming a city councilpersons mortal enemy, and making senior citizens in the Hamptons really really angry about Medicare.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Showing up at historic baseball games by accident. (Both Yankee perfect games in my lifetime, the Mets clinching in '86, Mo's 603rd save, several no hitters, and more.)

Also Scrabble.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
The fact that I am probably wearing a hat. Also, that I have a beard. Those who are particularly perspicacious may, if I am wearing short sleeves, notice that my left arm is very tan and my right arm is very not tan.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Words: I like books. In particular I like novels by dead russians full of Big Ideas, and your more esoteric SF&F stuff like China Mieville and Mervyn Peake and other things that people who like those things also probably like.

Rules for Radicals changed my life.

Sounds: Instead of listing everything I like I will list a few things I have been listening to a lot lately:

Dexy's Midnight Runners, The Jam, early Style Council, assorted other soul revival stuff and it's various descendants.

Newish stuff from RTJ, Heems, The Mountain Goats, The Alabama Shakes, Colleen Green, Screaming Females.

Third-wave ska bands that I listened to in high school, and new music by people who were in those bands.

Also, a whole lot of NPR and Podcast stuff.

Moving Pictures: I watch a lot of Storage Wars when I'm on the road. It's awful, but hypnotic. I like oddball comedies and heavily serialized, intricately plotted stuff. You know, your Arrested Developments and your Always Sunnys. Your Wires and your Breaking Bads.

I think I like the opening shot of The Player more than the opening from Touch of Evil to which it's a tribute.

Flavors: I have a mild obsession with finding the best pizza in New York. I've tried all of the classics (Tottonno's wins amongst them, though Patsy's in Harlem gets points for still serving slices), as well as as many of them fancy newfangled places as I can get to. I'm always looking to try more of them though. Also, since beverages are nominally 'food', I will mention here that I am a big craft beer snob and love tracking down and trying cool new things.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Convictions, taste, stimulants, depressants, words and schadenfreude.

Especially schadenfreude. It's usually funny because it isn't me.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Whether Dexy's Midnight Runners will ever get the respect they deserve for that first record.

Baseball, Politics, and Rock and Roll.

The mechanics of Power.

Getting lost.

Whether the owners of Kum Bowl Kitchen really understand what it is they own.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Searching for the Young Soul Rebels
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I learned to get good at scrabble by cheating at it online.

My reaction to mint is not unlike that of a vampire to garlic.

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You want to know why I was told by US Border Patrol to not attempt to return to Canada for a decade. (UPDATE: as of 8/13 I have returned to Canada! And from Canada! My name has been cleared!)

You know the song lyric I grabbed this username from.

I don't care what you think about the Oxford Comma; if you're the sort of person that properly uses semicolons in casual writing like texts and emails though, we ought to talk.
