My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm embarrassed by my uncreative screen name. I really just wanted to look around this site at first, and so hurried through the process of creating a profile, ASSUMING that I'd have the chance to change my name if I wanted to. Nope. Doesn't work that way, apparently. I promise I'm really much more clever than the screen name suggests.

I think I'm going to start keeping a list of alternate screen names, for if I WERE able to change it:

I'm a displaced Southerner (no accent, so I'm told) still learning how to cope with NYC. After 12 years in Manhattan, I escaped to Brooklyn (Dumbo, specifically), and it's the BEST decision I could have made. It's so beautiful, and so much QUIETER! Two years here now and loving it.

I love just about anything British. Television, films, comedy, music. Even the food. Seriously. I lived in London for about six months right after graduation from college and try to go back to visit whenever possible.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
During the day, I'm a mild-mannered entertainment lawyer but, the rest of the time, I still like to pretend I'm a rock star. I have a "band" called Leckerphonics (look us up!) that provides the majority of fun in my life at the moment.

I like to go running, and wish I did it more often and knew more interesting places to run. My ideal morning starts with a run, picking up a coffee on the way home, then chilling to music and doing a good crossword puzzle. Mmm...

I used to play tennis a lot as a kid, and am just now trying to get back into after...15 years? As long as you don't laugh at my 1980's racquet, maybe we can play together.

Recently took up Transcendental Meditation. A little embarrassing to admit, perhaps, but I'm enjoying it so far.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Being humble. Not great at answering this type of question. I'm generally a self-deprecating kind of guy, but mostly just because I'm put off by people who brag. I mean, I've got plenty of great qualities, but you're just going to have to figure out what they are yourself...
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I used to have what I thought was a HILARIOUS answer here, but I've started to think that maybe not EVERYONE would feel the same way, especially if you don't yet know mys sense of humor. So I'm deleting that old answer and seeing how it goes.

The true but boring answer is probably my blue eyes or usually long-ish hair.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Music is the big one here: I live and breathe it. Got to have it on all the time. I tend towards indie rock, and stuff that makes me nostalgic for the good ole days. A small selection of favorites: Replacements, Robyn Hitchcock, Beatles, Andrew Bird, Nick Drake, Peter Gabriel, Pink Floyd, Billy Bragg & Wilco (individually, but not so much the Woody Guthrie albums they did together), Too Much Joy, Gravel Pit, Pixies, Ryan Adams, Bright Eyes, Sleigh Bells, Titus Andronicus, Jaymay. I'm an encyclopedia of early 80's music. I know everyone here says it, but I mean it. Really.

As for movies and TV, I tend to gravitate towards dark and/or clever comedies or geeky sci-fi stuff. Fave movies: Ghostbusters, Rushmore, Big Lebowski, Beyond the Valley of the Dolls, Blade Runner. Fave TV: Daily Show/Colbert Report, Breaking Bad, Game of Thrones, Homeland, It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia, Doctor Who, Walking Dead, Mad Men, Battlestar Galactica, The Wire, Freaks and Geeks, anything on Adult Swim.

I promise that I never use the word "fave" in normal conversation.

I'm into comedy, particularly the "alternative" scene here in NYC. I love going to see comedy shows at The Bell House, Union Hall, UCB, etc. I regularly listen to comedy podcasts "WTF With Marc Maron" and "Comedy Bang Bang". Good stuff.

I wish I were a bigger reader, but I'm still blaming college for burnout. Just finished the George R.R. Martin "Song of Fire and Ice" books (what can I say? I'm a dork!) and am biding by time until the next one. Some of the authors I'll always go back to: Tolkien, Vonnegut, Pratchett, William S. Burroughs, Hunter S. Thompson.

Food? I will always be a pizza & burger guy at heart...my cholesterol-clogged heart.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1) Music
2) A guitar
3) My friends
4) TV (sad but true)
5) My dog
6) My other dog

(please don't tell my family they didn't make the cut)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Everything. I'm really trying to learn to stop over-thinking everything and just have a good time without always working so hard.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Usually in bed by 11. A workweek tends to tire me out, and all I can do by Friday is crash. Saturdays are better, though....
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I like taking self-portrait photographs of myself on my phone in bathroom mirrors when I'm drunk. I've got 89 of them at last count. I guess this isn't such a private confession since I post them all to Facebook. [UPDATE: I officially closed this chapter of my life back in Jan. '13. I was tired of being known as "the bathroom picture guy" and had to shed that moniker]
