My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm a roundish fellow who tends to lean on his brash sense of humor to squeak by socially. When it comes to finding a laugh, I'm not the type to walk on eggshells. I more often completely disregard the sensitivities of those around me.

I'm a creative type. A dabble in screenwriting and stand-up comedy and I played in a band called Senator Fightmaster for a couple of years. I am currently working on a rock operetta/concept album.

More recently, I've developed an interest in cooking. While I couldn't in good sense claim to have any real talent in the kitchen, that doesn't stop me from trying.

I and my wife have been together since 2002. We married in September of 2009.

I am creative, empathetic, and goofy
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I am a music major at Portland Community College. I am studying piano and bass guitar, but I'm a composer long before an instrumentalist.

For pocket change, I write freelance tech reviews for an online distributor. It certainly doesn't pay the bills, but it's a relatively painless way to make a buck or two on the side.

I'm not gainfully employed at the moment, but I'm trying my best to avoid re-entering the soul-crushing industry of sales, which I unfortunately have a knack for. I'm surviving on grant and scholarship money at the moment.

In the long-term, I know that I'll never be a healthy, functioning adult unless I find a career that doubles as a creative outlet. I've even thought about going into the marketing industry. I would rather write campy jingles for frozen fish sticks than work at a desk.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Needlessly complimenting people, writing prose, telling a story, remembering a joke, berating a friend (for a cheap laugh), avoiding enemies, diffusing conflict, spelling, conjugating, cooking, singing, whistling, and typing. Aside form that, though, just about everything I touch turns to crap.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Those little voices of self-doubt and deflated ego want to say "It's your gut, fatty! Look at it jiggle! No one can love you!" I'd much prefer people to first notice the volume of my voice (excessively loud), or my deliberate lack of social tact. If they see me at a concert, maybe they will notice my misguided sense of fashion or the fact that I am tall and they cannot see over me.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
(A) For the last couple of years of my life, I've been completely disinterested in fiction. As such, my favorites fall almost exclusively under the banner of music non-fiction. Some choice cuts are Bob Spitz' massive biography, "The Beatles," Oliver Sacks' exploration of music and the mind, "Musicophilia," and Fela Kuti's explosive autobiography, "This Bitch of a Life."

(B) True Stories, Cidade de Deus, All the President's Men, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, Night of the Hunter, and literally hundreds more. I tend to be a director fanboy, so if I like one picture, I've got to see the rest of the filmography.

(C) Psychedelic Rock, Classic Rock, Freak Folk, Indie Rock, Alt. Country, Underground Hip Hop, Electronic Music (particularly French Electro), Afro-bet and (good) 80s Pop.

(D) I've eaten my life's share of pizza for the time being, but aside from that, I've never been picky (hence the gut).
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1. Music.
2. Word Processor.
3. Acoustic guitar.
4. Access to literature.
5. Food.
6. Water.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
My future and the festive cornucopia of ways that it could wind up sucking hard. Other than that, I'm generally trying to figure out scenarios for a film, or a song, or a short story. I should be thinking about my bank account or my homework, but I generally take my own approach to prioritizing my life. Even now, I do sometimes think about nicotine, which, until the month of may, ruled my everyday life.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Well, my schedule pervading, I'll either be studying, exploring the city of Portland, writing, playing music or drinking with friends.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I have always believed that ironic racism can be a subversively delicious way to mine chuckles, in specific company.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
If you can laugh at the expense of your politics, your feelings and your shortcomings. If you don't like being seen with fat people, well, this is the internet. I won't tell.
