I'm pretty good at building forts out of books I don't have room for on my bookshelves.
I went to school for film and English, which seemed like an great idea at the time.
Also, I like comic books. So, I've got that going for me.
It involves speaking to people with zero social skills on a regular basis and listening to a lot of podcasts.
I have a regular comedy show in the city I do with some friends. I'm also getting back into playing live music.
I'm also really good at sitting through bad movies and tv shows and then complaining about how I have no time to do the things I want.
Or that I listen to The Smiths a lot.
When you think about it, they are basically the same thing.

I'm not sure if destroying the theory of relativity and time travel is either a case of monster ego or extremely low self-esteem.
The advantage to being close to the city again is being able to see way more bands when they come to town. I used to go to shows multiple times a week, but that slowed down, and now I am looking to go see as many as possible. That's not isolated to Fridays, but I think it is in the spirit of the question. And if it isn't, then I misread the subtext.
Listen, I have a bunch of female friends that use this site, so I have heard stories about how awful some guys on here can be. I sort of want to apologize for them on behalf of men that aren't absolutely ridiculous, but I am kind of hoping that if you have read my profile, you get the idea that I am not like that and realize that they don't represent everyone.
So, yeah, if you think that, then please, send me a message. I find myself blanking when it comes to starting conversations sometimes, so if you think that we would have something to talk about, go for it.
