My self-summary
I recently moved from Minneapolis to the balmy southern city of Milwaukee.

Also, here is my favorite autocorrect. I tried to type, "I'm home. G'night!" What I actually sent was "I'm home. Gunfight!"

Let's see... I like taking walks just to take walks, sometimes very long ones, even in the dead of winter. I respect people with strong opinions who will let them be challenged. One of my dreams in life is to have a frisbee dog. I bought something called a "knork" in part as protest to all the times I was scolded for cutting food with the side of my fork growing up. My favorite part of my job is working with people. I think bicycles are beautiful. I have read the Vonnegut book, Galapagos, while in the Galapagos. I attended to French Camp (aka Cool Kids Camp). I have belayed down the side of a cliff, anchored by trees, to look at 400 million year old fossils. I have helped people from five continents with immigration issues. (Why only five? It's like I always yell well picketing at the border, "Go back to Antarctica! And/or Australia!" Just kidding, who doesn't love Australians?) I once completed a NY Times Sunday crossword but am way out of practice now. I remember a time when I usually wished I was doing something else, but now I would rather be doing what I'm doing.
What I’m doing with my life
I am reacquainting myself with Milwaukee after many years in Minnesota, Pennsylvania, New Zealand/Jersey. Suggestions for fun things to do, interesting events to check out, cool places to bike, etc., are more than welcome!
I’m really good at
Scrabble - I can even define such useful words as "aa" and "cwm."

Parallel parking

Tetris - It's been a long time, though. I may be past my peak, which was probably around 9 years old.

Growing a beard - Though it is a rare look for me ... maybe next winter?

Fixing my parents' computer problems using Google

Analogy-making
The first things people usually notice about me
People who have only just met me can often recognize me by my laugh.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: I am now reading Freedom Evolves, by Daniel Dennett -- a fascinating look at the human brain. I love it. Recently read American Gods by Neil Gaiman, Cloud Atlas by David Mitchell, The Adventures of Kavalier and Clay by Michael Chabon, and The Tipping Point by Malcolm Gladwell. All-time favorites include Foucault's Pendulum, House of Leaves, Infinite Jest, Kavalier and Clay, One Hundred Years of Solitude, Midnight's Children, Everything Is Illuminated, The Elegant Universe, The Omnivore's Dilemma, Consilience by E.O. Wilson.... I will occasionally read a book at a bar. Is that weird? For awhile, I would read a book while walking 5 miles home from work. That, I believe, is even weirder.

Movies: Brazil, The Big Lebowski, The Princess Bride, There Will Be Blood, 12 Monkeys, Primer, Memento, Usual Suspects, Les Miserables, The Prestige, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, Being John Malkovich, Lost Highway, Blue Velvet, Mulholland Drive, Dr. Strangelove, Pan's Labyrinth

Music: The Smiths, Arcade Fire, Okkervil River, Neutral Milk Hotel, Andrew Bird, OutKast, Regina Spektor, Tom Waits, Leonard Cohen, Mountain Goats, Talking Heads, TV on the Radio, Beirut, Neil Young, Of Montreal, Decemberists, Fleet Foxes, Janelle Monáe , Pert Near Sandstone, The National, David Bowie, Dark Dark Dark, Stubby Chubbz Brass Band, Hello Death, Said the Whale, pretty much any classic Motown, many many more .... Please suggest something new and/or local to me.

TV: Twin Peaks, Arrested Development, The Wire, Community, Battlestar Galactica, Portlandia, That Mitchell & Webb Look, Peep Show, Louie, Parks & Recreation, Daily Show, Lost, Breaking Bad, Always Sunny in Philadelphia, Bob's Burgers, Fishing with John. Happily, I don't spend too much time on TV these days.

Art Style / Medium:
I'm a sucker for modern (and post-, post-post-, etc., -modern) art as well as the old oils. I am constantly eyeing and internally (or externally) debating all kinds of architectural choices.

Food:
I like tasty local food and local beer when I can get it. I also enjoy the occasional Mexican goodness, Vietnamese noodles or soup, Thai curries or pad Thai or rad na, sushi, Ethiopian, some good Montreal poutine, brunch in general, almost anything really.
The six things I could never do without
Live dancin' music
Puppy love
Comedy gold
Sunshine - I was recently asked if I'd rather have it always be day or always be night; fair question, but I am pretty sure there is only one right answer.
Public radio
Comfy shoes - Whatever you do, take care of your shoes.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
What makes a city great? Find your city, find yourself a city to live in. What makes a neighborhood great? What are the cheapest and simplest ways to improve a neighborhood? (Should I have been an urban planner? Can I still?)

What if everybody on Earth jumped at the same time?

How have sloths survived? And how does it feel to have your entire species be named after a human deadly sin? Which other sins would make the coolest species?

What is a dog doing when he tilts his head while looking at me? I recently read it might have something to do with their hearing, but that doesn't feel right. It seems more like a gesture to indicate to me that he is trying to comprehend my communication. (Hooray for anthropomorphizing!)

Did Salon.com actually find The Worst Tweet in History? Or is it just the first in a bold new line of accidentally-on-purpose viral marketing campaigns? (Or maybe second, after the Janet Jackson's Super Bowl "debacle," which has garnered the Wikipedia entry with the highest words-to-importance ratio ever.)
On a typical Friday night I am
A drink and a conversation with a friend. Or maybe a raucous game night / dance party at someone's home. Or driving out of town for a camping trip or a quick vacation in Minneapolis or Chicago, etc.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I still have my tonsils ... and my appendix ... and my wisdom teeth ... and my ... coccyx? I'm pretty much intact, vestigially speaking. Those things are pretty private, too. Not just anyone makes it to tonsil base with me.
I’m looking for
  • Girls who like guys
  • Ages 21–42
  • Near me
  • For new friends, long-term dating, short-term dating
You should message me if
If that's the kind of thing that you think you might be into.

Holy crap that's a long profile. Please don't read the whole thing. You can probably find the important bits quickly enough.

Let's grab a beer or a coffee, catch a live show, go to a museum or a bookstore.

If you have read my profile and think you know me through and through, you are wrong. Likewise, I will not assume after reading your profile that I know you.

Watch this when the world is pissing you off:
