My self-summary
I really like to tinker - computers, cars, cooking, welding, genomes, anything. I've been told that Machine Project would be my paradise, but I haven't found the time to leave my projects at home and start some new ones on the east side.

My college major sounds impressive, at least to me. You think that a science degree would arm you with the proper cognitive pipelines to ensure solid opinions and well-reasoned conclusions. I suppose it does, but I never realized spending that much time poking holes in arguments and questioning alleged causalities would lead to THIS amount of skepticism and doubt.

I really like laughing and thinking out loud. I already know what's going in my life, so I hope you don't mind if I ask more about what's going on in yours.
What I’m doing with my life
After graduating I hitched my wagon to an avant-garde method of determining evolutionary relationships across wide arrays of species. When funding ran out for my project I hawked my laboratory and research skills as a freelance contractor/hired gun.

Now my day job is being a web programmer for a law school. Not exactly my passion project, but the pay is better and I'm surrounded by computers and books, which isn't so bad. Right now I'm saving up cash for my MS and PhD. Because unless my punk rock or competitive crossword solving picks up steam, I think I'm stuck in academia.
I’m really good at
Holding a conversation, investigating shit, laughing at absurd situations, doing Tom Waits impressions, being deadpan, reading emotions (or so I'm told), and skanking.
The first things people usually notice about me
-That I use puns in really inappropriate situations.
-My eyes. They're green, with blue and grey streaks.
-My ability to listen and read body language.
-My allergy to passive aggression.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
MUSIC: I like bands that book really small venues and pack them with people who line up early, know all the lyrics, and hang out after. Music festivals can be really fun, but I'll take 30 people in a dive bar to 5,000 on a polo field.

With that said, Radiohead (San Diego 2006) was the best concert I've ever been to in my life, and I'll probably never top it.

MOVIES: Definitely highbrow/lowbrow opinion here. For most of my childhood I dressed each year in an outfit inspired by a Hitchcock movie. I also have gone to see The Room more times than I care to admit.

SHOWS: I can get really sucked into a procedural. Dramas can really captivate me, but my heart is ultimately in comedies. Matt Groening and Larry David have made possible 95% of the TV quotes I make.

BOOKS: Currently reading Marukami's Wind Up Bird Chronicle (and loving it). These have been my favorites from the last couple years-
-Role Models by John Waters
-This is How You Lose Her by Junot Diaz
-A Year of Magical Thinking by Joan Didion
-Foreskin's Lament by Shalom Auslander
-Big Sur and the Oranges of Hieronymous Bosch by Henry Miller
-A Room of One's Own by Virginia Woolf

I love Martin McDonagh and Samuel Beckett as playwrights, e.e. cummings as a poet. If you want to know how I think-

-Against Method by Paul Feyeraband
-Fear and Trembling and The Present Age by Soren Kierkegaard
-Reason in History by GWF Hegel
-The Second Sex by Simone de Beauvoir
-The Structure of Scientific Revolutions by Thomas Kuhn
-A Study of History by Arnold Toynbee

The six things I could never do without
1. NPR
2. Scotch/Bourbon/Whiskey in general
3. Coffee
4. Crosswords
5. Vinyl
6. Granny Smith apples (they're fucking delicious).
I spend a lot of time thinking about
art, biology, life, music, God (in a non-religious way - let's talk about it), literature, crosswords, how anyone can actually know ANYTHING, how to ensure my atheism doesn't stop me from being a good Catholic, how to add garlic to whatever I'm going to cook that night.
On a typical Friday night I am
Maybe at a show, preferably in the pit. (if available)

Honestly, I prefer going to bars/concerts/plays/improv on weeknights. Things are less crowded, and cooler, weirder shit is afoot. If you want to go to Doug Loves Movies on a Tuesday night, I'm in.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
When I was younger, I had a speech therapist who loved Fiona Apple. She made me memorize the full title to her album "When the Pawn...", and made me recite it whenever i got flustered or in a stutter frenzy. I don't have speech problems today, but sometimes I say it and it keeps me from getting pissed off.
I’m looking for
  • Everybody
  • Ages 21–30
  • Near me
  • For new friends
You should message me if
1. If you like talking a lot, especially about feminist writing. I've been fortunate enough to have awesome friends who have given me great suggestions over the years, and I'd appreciate further reading suggestions! Bonus points if you can convince me that Kate Millett is cooler than Mary Ellmann.
2. If you like talking about politics and current events just about as much as making fun of how CNN/MSNBC cover politics and current events.
3. If for you Titus Andronicus is a perfectly good answer to a "Favorite Band" or "Favorite Theatrical Play" question.
4. You have been dying to try something new you've heard about (restaurant, bar, graffiti, hangliding, whatever) and none of your friends have the brass to do it with you.
5. We have an enemy percentage above 50% and you know Krav Maga. I'll meet you in a back alley with my nunchaku and we can settle our disputes once and for all.
6. If you know what my OKC handle is about, and you approve.
