I love going to concerts (indie, electronic), dancing, video games, brunch, and being around friends!
I love listening to and making music. I get really excited by new albums, and if I don't rotate my selection every month or so, I'll 'inexplicably' turn dour until I get something fresh on. I sing, play guitar, mandolin, and can fool around on bass, too. Most of my music I made is software based these days.
Off the cuff quips and puns.
Typing while maintaining eye contact and a conversation.
Leading the group at the expense of my own personal agenda.
Under reporting my credentials and abilities.
"Hey! Oh? Nice to meet you too! Oh, while we're on the subject, what's the first thing you noticed about me? Oh? Uh hun, go on... Perfect! Thank you for participating in my survey!"
Oooh, I know! I need someone to follow me around with a questionnaire. They can conduct the survey after I leave the room to remove bias! You any good with a clip board?
Really, though? I like to dress well.
As long as it is freshly prepared, and delicious. Double points if it's healthy! Wine pairings are fun too. I'm less for cooked seafood, but I'll try anything twice.
Stephen Colbert (Ask me about my trip to the Rally!), Last Week Tonight, Battlestar Galactica, The Mighty Boosh, Gurren Lagann, Cowboy Bebop, Always Sunny in Philadelphia, Rick and Morty... Not really TV, but PBS's YouTube series Idea Channel
Cloud Atlas, American Beauty, Interstella 5555, Indiana Jones, Star Wars, Birdman. I go through these so quickly I can't keep very many in my memory. My Dad used to run a home theater business, so I've seen a fair share of cinema.
Mostly Indie-rock and house, but I seriously enjoy every flavor. Daft Punk is and always will be my favorite band. Hot Chip, Bonobo, Four Tet, Fleet Foxes, Kendrick, Royksopp, Moderat, LCD Soundsystem, Sylvan Esso, First Aid Kit, The War on Drugs, Chvrches, Shearwater, Gesaffelstein, Fourplay, BBC recordings of Beethoven symphonies, The Crusaders, and Mingus.
Anathem, Redwall, Shadow of the Wind, anything by Palahniuk, Wise Man's Fear, Dune, Sandman, DMZ, The Massive,
My water bottle
That said, I'm amazing at improvising, so 'never' is an incredibly relative term. I'm an Eagle Scout. I roll with it. Never confuse being prepared with being equipped.
10 second comedy sketches.
Jokes that use two or more languages for the punchline.
Sex, positivity, and why we can't just all pile in a big ball and play.
Elaborate pranks to pull on my lovely roommates (they said that the job I did of tin-foiling their beds after vacation was a work of art. Made me feel warm and fuzzy inside).
How frequently my state of being can be compared to Don Henley songs, and how dirty that makes me feel.
Track lists for the next mix or playlist I'm brewing.
How to set up a reason to cook something elaborate without raising the stakes high enough that people will get angry if it turns out poorly.
If I should type any given statement out using colloquial jargon and spelling conventions or a nigh-impenetrable assembly of exceedingly precise verbiage.
How frequently my state of being can be compared to Garth Brooks songs, and how dirty that makes me feel.
The best way to add neon lights to drab pieces of clothing, so that I can glow in the dark and my friends can find me easier.
Whether anyone reads this, or if I'm just spouting text into the wind.
Where that pair of headphones that's slightly better in this situation have gotten to. Seriously. I have 4 pairs in sight, but I can't find my running Klipsches. THIS IS A DISASTER.
Board games with friends.
Playing the story driven RPG of the month.
...you interested in an evening of banter and snark.
...you know of an up and coming artist who you want to share with someone new.
...you want to smoke and watch Slavoj Žižek documentaries.
...you've got a great idea for an adventure, and need a jack of all trades to cover your bases.
