My self-summary
I'm some guy who works in Antarctica, plays in bands, and sleeps in Minneapolis when I can. Last week I moved to Portland and I'm trying to figure out a way to fill a decent-sized one bedroom apartment with furniture. I just finished a 12-month contract at the geographic south pole, so my brain is totally melted and I'm terrified of people and animals and the unfamiliar in general, but it's all good.
What I’m doing with my life
For the past 5 years I left each October to fly down to the US Antarctic Program's Amundsen-Scott South Pole Station. I'm sure you're wondering what I do there - probably studying penguins or examining ice cores, right? Nope, I do IT - I was the sysadmin at South Pole for 2012-2013. And no, the computers are not for penguins, there aren't even penguins anywhere near our station, don't ask about the penguins. You can, but you'll be disappointed.

Now that I've done a full year I need a break, and to be fair the US interpretation of the Antarctic Treaty System's prohibitions on new territorial claims means that legally, they need me to have a break as well. So here I am in the real world with a pile of money in savings and absolutely no responsibilities, plus a standing job offer to return to Antarctica in the future if I'm feeling masochistic. I don't have to fucking do shit with my life at the moment, I'm just going to chill out, buy all the bikes and guitars and sushi and decent internet access that I couldn't get while I was away, and make decisions about where I want to be geographically without any preplanning at all. You can't tell me what to do, OKCupid question box.
I’m really good at
Music - I play bass (for money, usually), drums (nothing to write home about, but I can keep a beat - wait, who writes home about drummers?), keys (mostly cheesy synth stuff, but I know enough theory to build real chords and not that mashing fifths shit), guitar (this is all I do for hours per day right now), sax (I haven't played for years so my embouchure is terrible), trumpet (even more years, even worse embouchure), pennywhistle (no comment), and I can sing.

Biking - I like to bike places, using my bike, you know - pedaling it and all.

I suppose I'm good with computers too, it's my job and all.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: Heart of Darkness and The Satanic Verses (to make me sound smart), Michael Crichton thrillers (to disabuse anybody of the former notion), and pretty much anything sci-fi. Also, I just discovered this summer that A Confederacy of Dunces is really unbelievably fantastic and I'd kind of like to live in 1960s New Orleans now.

Movies: I own a copy of "The Rock" and "Punch-Drunk Love". Also, have you seen Cube?

Shows: I barely watch TV, but that's not because I'm some sort of anti-tv snob. Firefly broke my heart by ending, Battlestar Galactica taught me how I'd do as a heroin addict, and I've watched every episode of Star Trek TNG as a continuous set.

Music: The trifecta of artists that get the most airplay on my laptop are Elliott Smith, Cloud Cult, and Bright Eyes, depending on whether I'm feeling depressed, optimistic, or apocalyptic. Here's a list of the other things that I chose to listen to from my library over the past year or so:
Ace Of Base - Aesop Rock - Andrew Bird - Andrew Jackson Jihad - Ani Difranco - Animal Chin - Atmosphere - The Avett Brothers - The Bad Plus - Ben Folds - Billy Joel - Bjork - Blackalicious - Blink 182 - Cake - Charlie Parr - Citizen Cope - Conor Oberst - Crooked Still - Dan Israel - Dance Band - Dawes - Death Cab for Cutie - The Decemberists - Depeche Mode - Emily Haines - Eve 6 - Fiona Apple - Florence + The Machine - Garbage - Gotye - Heatmiser - Heiruspecs - Herbie Hancock - His Mischief - The Hold Steady - Imogen Heap - Jethro Tull - John Vanderslice - Jose Gonzales - Junip - Korn - Lauryn Hill - Linkin Park - Liz Phair - The Mammals - Mason Jennings - Matchbox 20 - Michael Jackson - Modest Mouse - The Mountain Goats - Movits! - Mumford & Sons - Nine Inch Nails - The Nylons - Of Monsters And Men - The Offspring - Peter Mulvey - PJ Harvey - Poe - P.O.S. - Presidents of the United States of America - Prince - The Raconteurs - Radiohead - Regina Spektor - Ryan Adams - Sean Na-Na - Semisonic - Sia - Sims - Sleater-Kinney - Soul Coughing - Spoon - St. Vincent - Ted Leo + Pharmacists - Tegan and Sara - Tenacious D - They Might Be Giants - Third Eye Blind - Tori Amos - Trampled By Turtles - Violent Femmes - Weezer - The White Stripes

Food: cheese.
The six things I could never do without
Plastic money
Some kind of instrument
A starting point
A destination
A path
I need six? Cheese, I suppose.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
The fact that any time you walk upright you're really just practicing controlled falling with a direction in mind. And you swing your arms in rhythm because your reptile brain still thinks you're on all fours.
On a typical Friday night I am
Either working somewhere where 6-day weeks are required, or not working and confused about what day of the week it is because they all blend together.
I’m looking for
  • Girls who like guys
  • Ages 20–35
  • Near me
  • For new friends, long-term dating, short-term dating, casual sex
You should message me if
You would like to have some form of communication with me, I can't tell what you're typing unless you send it to me as a message. Don't just put it in the address bar, it doesn't work.

More specifically, if you wanna go ride bikes I'm totally down for that. You'll have to provide your own bike though, I'm not running a bike rental shop here.

Also, if you want to play through Secret of Mana with me I am totally down for that.

Oh, who am I kidding - I don't get messaged.
