My self-summary
Hi there, I'm Alex, a fan of horse_ebooks (you will not regret Googling this), an informal scholar, and a Marxist of the Groucho persuasion.

Among other things, I am also: witty, healthily cynical, terminally nerdy, probably a little too much of a worrywart, but love intelligent conversations, good poetry, a few close friends, and politics. Shy until I know you well and an inveterate night owl. I walk the tightrope between INTP and INFP, although I'm still on the fence about the whole MBTI concept and not wild in principle about putting entities as unfathomably complex as humans in boxes.
What I’m doing with my life
Graduated from college a year ago with a BA in Political Science. Looking for work as a paralegal or legal assistant at the moment.
I’m really good at
Ripostes, mocking bad films, poetry, essays, listening, awkward moments, caring "too much," singing, trying to transmit my passions, and hugs.
The first things people usually notice about me
Pallidly neat, pitiably respectable, incurably forlorn. (I'm just kidding; no one ever notices me.)
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
The fact that this is by far the longest section of my profile is itself a bit telling, but...

Books: George Saunders, Bret Easton Ellis and Don DeLillo. Winesburg, Ohio. Poetry by Charles Bukowski and T.S. Eliot. Raymond Carver's short stories. Watchmen. Also a big David Foster Wallace fan, although in my opinion: his essays > stories > novels.

Movies: Intelligent satires (Network, American Beauty, Brazil, The Princess Bride,) atmospheric mood pieces (Jacob's Ladder, There Will Be Blood, The Weather Man,) and the occasional unclassifiable masterpiece (Adaptation, Being John Malkovich, Synecdoche, NY.) Musicals, pretty much without exception. (Faves: Moulin Rouge and Across the Universe.) Finally, I'm by no means above the occasional camp "classic," particularly Birdemic: Shock and Terror. (Best time I've had with friends!)

TV: Mad Men, Scandal, Queer as Folk, Girls, Law & Order, Joan of Arcadia, True Detective. I'm a big enough fan of The Simpsons to quote or reference it on a pretty regular basis. Strangely enough, my guilty pleasure is actually Aaron Sorkin shows.

Music: Fairly eclectic, although I do avoid really heavy stuff like the plague. A few of my absolute favorites: Bob Dylan, Tom Waits, Radiohead, The National, Bright Eyes, Billy Joel, Regina Spektor, The Velvet Underground, Elliott Smith, and Bruce Springsteen. Representative sample:

Food: I've gotta be honest, I am far from being a "foodie." If it tastes good and it's not so appallingly unhealthy that it makes me ill to think about eating it, nothing else matters that much to me. Extreme spiciness is something I do prefer to avoid, though.
The six things I could never do without
Idealism, cell phone, biting wit, voluminous book collection, good company, and journal.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
whether I will ever live my dreams, what I should be doing with my life, whether my disbelief is light enough to risk suspending.

Love, but perhaps that goes without saying.
On a typical Friday night I am
Why is "Friday night" such a big deal that it warrants a section dedicated to it, one might well ask, but in any case...I'm either scouring the internet for weird quips and odd music or (my definite preference) enjoying drinks and quality conversations with a good friend or two.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I used to hide in the bathroom during high school pep rallies. :p
I’m looking for
  • Guys who like guys
  • Ages 21–32
  • Near me
  • For new friends, long-term dating, short-term dating
You should message me if
you're equally puzzled as to what's supposed to go in this section, and/or you aren't put off by my falling back on this lame "meta" copout.
