My self-summary
I'm a 20-year-old punk rocker, actor, and compulsive knowledge-seeker with an outrageously overactive imagination. I might also be the skinniest guy you've ever met.

Things I like: power chords, literature and good writing in general, video games, history, adventures. Couldn't live without music and the ability to play it. If you have any interest in hearing any of my original stuff, my youtube channel is "thefrancfurter" although the quality is exactly what you'd expect from a shitty guitar and GarageBand. I've discovered that I'm the type to talk to strangers (which is part of the reason I'm here), because yeah, you can actually find some amazingly fascinating, even beautiful stories from people you've never met before, once you get over that weird hesitation to talk to people you don't know.

Things I despise: dishonesty, intolerance (especially homophobia and the shaming of people with depression/mental illness), and anything you could loosely describe as "bullshit." I value straightforwardness and openness more than just about anything. I leave few things unsaid and prefer that the people I'm close to do the same.

Thanks especially to my musical influences I try to be extremely aware of the world and its injustices, but though I occasionally call some fuckers out in the three-minute, three-chord format, I'm getting to the point where I want to actually do something that matters and helps make the world a better place. Aaaaand that sounded cliched as all hell. But, yeah. If you have a cause that's extremely important to you, tell me about it.

Born and raised in Somerville (MA), moved to Arlington when my parents split when I was 15, currently in Amherst. I went to an all-guys private high school in West Roxbury, which was *exactly* as painful as it sounds.

I always write way too much pointless shit in things like this ( you may be able to tell), so beyond that, I'll only say that for better or worse, people rarely find me boring. I don't find others boring either, so message me for any reason at all.

Finally, If you have a good short joke I want hear it. I love them. I swear I'm not being sarcastic. I will tell you my favorite one if you ask.

(If I sound like someone you'd want to talk to or meet or whatever, you also might want to read some of the explanations to the questions I've answered. They give you a sense of some of my opinions on things. I especially tried to explain a lot of my answers to the sex and dating ones, since those can be touchy subjects and it's good to be clear about stuff.)
What I’m doing with my life
I'm studying history at UMass Amherst in the Commonwealth honors program, with a second major in theatre because acting. This is an amazing place, but I just transferred here after taking some time off from school, and it's taking some time to get used to it and meet people. So if you're in the area I am *always* looking for stuff to do and cool new people to meet. I'm also a coxswain on the varsity men's crew team, although I'm taking a hiatus this season.

While I'm here, I'm trying to figure out if I want to pursue a career in teaching, law, or something like that, or instead try my luck at acting, writing, or (especially) playing music.

On a related note, I'm trying to start a band, so if you live or go to school in the Amherst/Northampton areas and you play bass, drums, or guitar, get at me (bro).
I’m really good at

Talking, writing, listening (or so I've been told, but I'm honestly a little skeptical), sarcasm, memorizing song lyrics and movie quotes.

Acting, I hope.

Playing power chords very fast and sloppily while aggressively singing about liberal politics, girls with peculiar names, and alcoholic ex-criminals with gambling debts getting whacked by their creditors and dumped in rivers in upstate New York.
The first things people usually notice about me
My terrifying and imposing figure, of course. Besides that...intense cheekbones, maybe? And the fact that I have a weird sense of humor and tend to speak sort of elaborately while cursing a lot.

Also, I'm apparently the only person who actually uses the tagging function on this site (see below).
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Music: Rock in most forms, but punk rock above all.
-The Clash. Joe Strummer died for my sins.
-The Ramones. So did Johnny, Joey, and Dee Dee.
-Rancid. If you know where my username comes from, *please* message me because I already think you're awesome.
-Social Distortion. Mike Ness is a living legend.
-Anyone who says Green Day have lost their edge doesn't know what the fuck they're talking about. Although I will say their most recent albums were pretty lame, for them.
-The Replacements, because Paul Westerberg is one of the greatest songwriters of all time.
-The Offspring, Rise Against, The Hives, The Bouncing Souls, Foo Fighters, Dropkick Murphys, Talking Heads, blink-182, Sum 41, Billy Talent, Husker Du, Pennywise
-The Who, Led Zeppelin, The Kinks, The Beatles
-Pearl Jam, Soundgarden, a little Nirvana and Alice in Chains
-Iron Maiden, Metallica
-The Decemberists, The Mountain Goats
-Finally, if you listen to Dire Straits—actually, if you've even ever heard of them—you just earned some serious Bonus Points.

I started reading before I could walk, and I've never been without books since then. I'm into a lot of historical fiction and alternate history. (Harry Turtledove, S.M. Stirling), etc.Science fiction as well: my favorite book ever is definitely Ender's Game by Orson Scott Card—even though the author is a bit of an ultra-conservative, homophobic dick—and it has damn good sequels as well.
I'm not sure I'd like to live like Tucker Max, but I'd damn well like to write like him.
Some "classics" I genuinely love: The Catcher in the Rye (which, I shit you not, I actually wrote a song about three years ago, and not just because Green Day did oh wait yes that's completely why I did it), 1984, Animal Farm, Catch-22, A Clockwork Orange, Slaughterhouse-Five, The Great Gatsby, Naked Lunch, On The Road.
-Anything Shakespeare, any time. Favorite comedy is Midsummer, favorite tragedy is Macbeth or Hamlet, favorite history is Henry V.
-Some others: World War Z, Looking For Alaska, Juliet, Naked, Band of Brothers, anything else by Stephen Ambrose, Who I Am (Pete Townshend's autobiography).

Shows: Family Guy, Band of Brothers, The Pacific, 24, Rescue Me, Homicide, Homeland

All the movies. Austin Powers, anything with Will Ferrell, Melancholia, Westerns in general, Saving Private Ryan. Anything Quentin Tarantino touches turns to gold—especially Inglourious Basterds, Kill Bill, Pulp Fiction, and Reservoir Dogs. Titanic. For the history. Really.

I'll try pretty much any food at least once. Italian, seafood, and burritos are my favorites. Love pasta with anything. And despite my best efforts I'm pretty sure I've never reached 110 pounds.

Video games: All the games. Anything open world (Fallout above everything), Just Cause 2, Far Cry, GTA, older Call of Duty games, real-time strategy, Civilization, SimCity, Bioshock.

Comics: Calvin and Hobbes, Dilbert, Zits, Doonesbury.

Webcomics: Questionable Content, xkcd, Cyanide and Happiness, Least I Could Do, Oglaf, Critical Miss.
The six things I could never do without
Music in general. In a pinch I'll just take three chords and the truth.
Guitar and amp.
Good books.
Friends I can trust.
The Internet because let's be honest here.
Oxygen, water, food hurr hurr hurr
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Where I'm going with my life. Lyrics. The nature of consciousness and self-awareness, and how fucking strange it is to be aware of your own thoughts. Whether my songwriting will ever be able to hold a candle to Joe Strummer or Paul Westerberg (it won't). I know saying "I think about everything" is another one of those cliches, but it's legitimately true, and part of the reason I like talking to people so much is that it keeps me from getting wrapped up in my own head.
On a typical Friday night I am
In college, going to a party with friends or playing at a local open mic night. Out of college, usually with a great group of people, hanging out in the Arnold Arboretum with a little bonfire and a few beers, enjoying good company and maybe the occasional drunken campfire singalong. Occasionally spending the night in getting immersed in a good RPG or practicing guitar with my cat as audience. Way too cool over here.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm pretty sure I'm straight, but I may have a tiny man crush on Billie Joe Armstrong.

Also, I write dating-site profiles that are like short novels. But that's not private, clearly. Sorry!
I’m looking for
  • Girls who like guys
  • Ages 18–23
  • Near me
  • For new friends, long-term dating, short-term dating, casual sex
You should message me if
Like I said, for any reason. Maybe if you want to have a real conversation with a real person, or if you live/go to school in the Amherst area and want to do Fun Things sometime. And, of course, if your name is Sheena and/or you are a punk rocker. (Ramones jokes!)

Also, the "casual sex" thing is there because right now I'm pretty much open to whatever comes my way, but casual sex is not what I'm actively looking for. Speaking of which, I am also perfectly fine with being only friends with people I meet here; it's like, I'd rather be friends with you than nothing.
