My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Hello! My name's Nik, and I'm moving to the Bay area fro Portland, Oregon at the end of November. I like Fig Newtons, back scratches, and having inebriated philosophical conversations that last for hours (that, or I just like trying to pronounce "the transvaluation of values" after I've had a few).

I play the ukulele fairly well (aka, Beirut level) guitar fairly poorly (aka, Green Day level), and drums even worse (so... Nickleback level?), but I am always learning, which is is something I'm passionate about. I've been told I'm like a walking Wikipedia; I've also been told I'm an iPod on shuffle, due to being able to sing along with just about any popular song released since 1960. Oh, and I dance too.

I love movies, especially animated ones. Yes, I'm one of those pricks who gets mad when people facetiously call them "cartoons" or "children's films". If "Up" didn't make you cry, you're a robot. That doesn't mean we can't be friends, 'cause having a robot friend would actually be awesome. Maybe I'm being a little close-minded. Okay androids, you're alright in my book.

As the previous paragraph attests, I'm very fond of going off on tangents. My favorite conversations always end with someone saying, "Wait, how did we get here?" and no one remembers.

And that's awesome.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm currently moving to the Bay area from Portland, OR, for a dream job at Pixar (I start December 1st)! However, I know no one in the area, nor even the area itself ( I visited once when I was six, but all I remember are the seals), so I'm looking to explore and see what my new home has in store for me.

Care to show the new guy around town?
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Making people laugh, often times at my own expense. I really don't have much of an ego when it comes to entertaining people. I'm happiest when I'm causing other people to be happy. I'm not just saying that to be nice; I'm being super cereal.

Also, trivia. And board games. And I'm not talking just Settlers and Apples to Apples. All the Meeples know my name.

I'm also exceptionally inappropriate on occasion. If I feel comfortable with someone, I'll answer just about any icky question honestly.... and subsequently be made fun of for it. I'm pretty much okay with this, as I accepted my weirdness long ago.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
That I'm really good at being tall.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I like books with unreliable narrators and lyrical prose. I also like books on history and tend to fixate for a year or so on a particular time period: right now it's post-Matthew Perry Japan to the Sino-Japanese War. A few of my favorite novels:
F. Scott Fitzgerald's The Great Gatsby (Baz Luhrman of Moulin Rouge fame directed a movie adaption lat year, and I can talk your ear off why it was better than I expected while simultaneously worse than I could imagine).
Douglas Adam's Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy : The books decrease in excellence as they go on, but when it's hot, oh, it's Zaphod Beeblebrox, baby.
Shakespeare : The tragedies... and maybe some of the histories. The comedies have their moments, but if I have to see another Shakespeare Festival put on an uninspired adaptation of The Two Gentlemen of Verona I'll unseam them from nave to chops.
Frank Herbert's Dune Saga : Indeed, you Bene Gesserit witch, you.
Brave New World : The most prophetic book of possibly the past hundred years.

Princess Mononoke
City of God
Monty Python and the Holy Grail
Toy Story 2 (the best. I look forward to many arguments where you try to convince me 3 is better).

Dr. Who
Cowboy Bebop
Game of Thrones (I've also read the books and am I compulsive explain-er)
Red Dwarf
Breaking Bad

Neutral Milk Hotel
The Mountain Goats
David Bowie
The Violent Femmes
Seu Jorge

I used to cook all the time when I lived with other people, but these days I don't do that as often. Having to throw out the now-spongy half of an unused bell pepper feels like I failed, somehow. As such, I'm really good at throwing seemingly discordant remaining ingredients together to make a dish that doesn't have a name, but is surprisingly delicious.

And Mozzarella sticks. Gawd, I love Mozzarella sticks.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1) Family. I'm close with all three of my younger siblings and call my parents every Sunday.
1) Contacts/glasses. I'm blind without them.
3) Music. I'll actually be serious about this one. I only gave a short list above. The world needs more music.
4) Good company. If you recall the happiest moments of your life, wasn't there always someone else there?
5) "I cannot live without books." - Thomas Jefferson.
6) My computer. Where would I do my work? Where would I watch my movies? How would I get music onto my iPod? Our dependence on these is absurd, but dammit if I don't love them (I built mine from scratch. Her name is GLaDOS).
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
How I can be more like Feminist Ryan Gosling.

The Higgs boson. I'm determined to successfully wrap my head around it.

Are these characters I'm writing simply pastiches of my favorite tropes and not as genuinely original as I hope them to be?

Why do I spend 90% of my time thinking about the things I'm supposed to be writing about rather than actually writing them? Because they're just that awesome, but whatever.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
At the movies, maybe with a small group at the Helium comedy club, followed by drinks with friends at a bar, having way too loud of conversations that tend to resemble "After Hours" on So, like this:
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I know all the words to Weird Al's "White and Nerdy" and sing them loud and proud.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
“Kilgore Trout once wrote a short story which was a dialogue between two pieces of yeast. They were discussing the possible purposes of life as they ate sugar and suffocated in their own excrement. Because of their limited intelligence, they never came close to guessing that they were making champagne.”

If you'd like to eat and suffocate with me, I'd love to hear from you. If you're out-spoken about being a feminist, want to discuss the eventual heat-death of the universe, or show recommend this new transplant something to do in his new home, send me a message!
