What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Let's see, after my '08 tenure as a blacksmith's apprentice in Ireland, I went and taught English in China for a couple years. After teaching, I went through a slew of weird/entertaining jobs made for foreigners, like being an extra as an evil American military guy in an upcoming Chinese blockbuster ("Naked Soldier" (relax- like most stuff from China, it has false advertising)), a web content writer for a shady electronics exporting company, or a "Foreign Beauty Consultant" for Gralisa Heuer, a fake company that claimed to use Gamma Ray technology to shear off the ugliness-causing parts of your genes, and other such Noble secrets that only the British Royal family used, until it was discovered in some rubble during WWII. Yeup.

Nowadays, in addition to working for an IT support company and a film...company, I'm trying to develop two different startup businesses with two different friends- With my traveling pal, we're developing a restaurant that has all the delicious, healthy (sorta) Chinese food you can't normally get in America, including the Xinjiang Muslim dishes, and the creative yet extremely tolerable northern cuisine.

The other is a repertory movie theater in Philly that I'm developing with my film-making friend. In addition to showing awesome nostalgic films, it will be renovated to resemble those palatial theaters from the 1930's. Think chandeliers, sconces, and a healthy load of red velvet. I'd buy that for a dollar.

Lately I've been thinking about going back into teaching English abroad, but haven't actually considered it yet.

I also go outside whenever possible.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
analyzing things, thinking about things, gargling things (actually, not really), drawing, being a guuf, climbing things that weren't made to be climbed, venturing into abandoned urban structures, and just plain walkin'.

I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I really have no idea- I suppose I start asking. Maybe that my eyes can change color...

Or perhaps it's the fact that I have almost no visible scars?

Books: REAL Ultimate Power, Ghosts/Aliens. Both by the same author, both encapsulate my adolescence to a disturbing degree. I also like Tao De Ching, except that it mirrors everything I've figured out on my own up to this point, so I actually avoid reading it for that reason. People innately have what it takes to discover the path on their own and follow it to enlightenment, so the only reason to write about it is to help people who have no interest in the path, but could use a few life lessons here and there. The reason all those classic sages always give fuzzy advice (assuming they aren't nuts), is because the more time and effort you spend struggling with ignorance and cultivating an understanding on your own, the better you'll be at connecting the dots down the line.

Movies: There's a lot of good ones out there, about 159 last time I counted. But my all-time favorites listed in no order at all include: The Nightmare Before Christmas, Gremlins 2, Phantom of the Paradise, Eddie Murphy Raw, Repo Man, Total Recall, Escape from New York, Fantastic Mr. Fox, Labyrinth, Coraline, Hot Fuzz, Shaun of the Dead, Scott Pilgrim vs the World, The Fall, The 5th Element, The Warriors, Little Shop of Horrors, and last but almost farthest from least, Robocop.

WOW, I am so pumped just from proofreading this list, I feel like going out and throwing a child right into a basketball hoop. But you know what- I'm not going to...I don't want to be THAT guy.

Music: Oh, most things, as long as there's a healthy beat to it. Lately I've been heavily into 80's European dance music, aka Italo Disco, but I like to listen to any genre out there, as long as the piece is decent. That and traditional Celtic music. Loreena McKennitt is pretty good too.

Shows: What, like, TV? Ptsch, no.

Well actually, Game of Thrones is pretty alright. If only I could show it to my younger relatives without scarring them for life...also Adventure Time is (edit: USED TO BE) rather rad.

ADDENDUM: Frigghin' 1960s Batman. It's online if you want it hard enough.

Also, anything by Tim and Eric has yet to disappoint (only because I haven't watched their movie yet). Still don't want no cable in my house, though.

Lists that are about me

Natural settings

Small cats fighting. Either with each other, or against their human captors. To be certain, I like dogs just as much, but their brand of fighting is too direct to function as pure entertainment for me.

Anything that comes out of my subwoofer (one time a mouse did, which only made this conviction stronger)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Everything I can. (Except stuff I feel I've already determined beyond a doubt. Then I'll just occasionally reflect on it.) Mostly, the universe and human nature (gender/sex/race/religion/basic function), which are really the same thing. Since we're just walking, talking little chunks of the universe, we naturally operate by the same principles. And those subtle little principles are the most significant and hard-to-grasp. But it's also the most rewarding...I assume
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Actually, I can't say. Nothing's been very typical since I got back from Deep Channel (Shenzhen)..

So far I've hosted a David Lynch marathon, helped film an Autism documentary, been a video switcher guy at a Cagefighting match, acted in a sitcom pilot, and got punched in the eye by some crazy street-man. Although I did manage to steal back this jacket he took from a lady's thrift shop, so no regrets.

When left to my own devices, I like to go to ̶B̶o̶r̶d̶e̶r̶s̶ Barnes & Noble and flip through a book with some fancy chocolate-flavored coffee.

Otherwise I might be filming something eccentric with my friends, then hitting the Indian buffet, followed by some kind of cool-down activity

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You're ready to be appreciated for WHO YOU ARE.

Biking to an abandoned distillery and sneaking in sounds like the start of a nice, full afternoon to you.

You want to teach me French, or German. In exchange, I can teach you Engrish.

You're just looking for someone to go on platonic bike rides with (preferably through a forest), and just talk about stuff..

OR if you simply want to hang out and watch movies or play games on my home-style theatre projector. Not that I don't enjoy the more active activities the city has to offer, but it's always nice to be welcomed home by such decadent possibilities.
