My self-summary
I am a master abstractor.

I am also a master bullshitter. These two things may be related.

I am a writer. My work has been called a bastardization of poetry and prose, a description of which I am quite proud.

I'm also more than just a little bit of a goofball and a dork.

"Live and act within the limit of your knowledge, and keep expanding it to the limit of your life."
-Ayn Rand
What I’m doing with my life
Pursuing a path as a Veterinary Technician at Baker College. Trying to finally commit my words to paper in a way that I don't destroy when I reread it.

Also learning to play the Violin I just bought on 10/10/11.
I’m really good at
Analytical/rational thought and creativity.

Seeing the big picture, yet obsessively dwelling on a single detail.

I have a belief in the ultimate conquering power of love, along with a pure cynicism in the ability of most people to achieve it.
The first things people usually notice about me
Not sure what to put here, so I'm going to write something I think is cool.

Did you know that they've made a neutrino go faster than the speed of light? Yeah. Threatening to punch Einstein in the face.

If you think about it and assume there's a man pulling a trigger to fire it and a box with a light that goes on when the particle gets there you would actually see the light go on BEFORE the man pulled the trigger. Time travel, people!

Not really though. In actuality he still pulls the trigger first, but the particle would travel faster than the reflected light from his hand that allows us to see the gesture and arrive at the receiver first, triggering that reaction.

Still, I think if I actually saw that my head would explode on the spot. Messy.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books:
Atlas Shrugged - My atheist bible, various eccentricities of the author understood, this is man's guide to living without God.

Pillars of the Earth - Ken Follett's finest work and perhaps one of the best historical fiction novels ever written. An unparalleled exploration of the relationship between the church, the monarchy, and the peasantry.

American Gods - It isn't so much Gaiman's ability to create a world as it is to create a reality - a state of existence that immerses you so completely that suspension of disbelief is no longer necessary.

Dune - The scope and scale of this series is something I will forever be in awe of, even if it got flat out bizarre toward the end. P.S. Fuck Kevin J. Anderson.

J.R.R. Tolkein, George R. R. Martin, Robert Jordan, Brandon Sanderson, Robin Hobb, Garth Nix, The Poisonwood Bible by Barbara Kingsolver, Larry Niven, David Brin, Terry Pratchett, Sharon Shinn, Snow Falling on Cedars by David Guterson.

Yeah, I'm a fantasy nerd.

Television:
Dr. Who! Firefly, BSG seasons 1-3, Eddie Izzard stand-up, Futurama, Southpark, Scrubs (fuck Degrassi Junior Scrubs), Arrested Development, Family Guy, vintage Simpsons, Breaking Bad, The Office, Parks and Recreation, Escaflowne, Cowboy Bebop, Seinfeld, Big Bang Theory, Louie.

Recommend me some. I'm always on the lookout for new television.

Movies:
Scott Pilgrim vs. The World, The Fifth Element, Lucky Number Slevin, Memento, Barbarella, Lord of the Rings trilogy, Dead Alive, Dark City, Sin City, Taken.

Why can't I think of them when I need to make a list?

Music:
Everything from Metallica to Schubert's Mass in G.

More specifically, Rise Against, Tool, A Perfect Circle (essentially the same band), Devotchka, The Lonely Island, Matchbox 20, Wallflowers, Bruce Hornsby, Mike + the Mechanics (Don't worry, no one else knows who they are either), various video game music, such as Yuki Kajiura, Yoko Kanno, Yasunari Mitsuna, Nobuo Uematsu, and Koji Kondo...

I also have to mention Gasta. Localish Irish/Celtic/Bluegrass fiddle and drum combo. They play at Quinn and Tuite's every once in a great while. If you're not familiar with them, become so.

You know what? This might be easier.
Genres I don't like - 90% of rap and country. Exceptions are as follows.

Rap: Snippets of Eminem and DMX
Country: Mary Chapin Carpenter
The six things I could never do without
1) The written word
2) Electronic media
3) A rational universe
4) Social downtime
5) Dictionary.com
6) Spaghetti
I spend a lot of time thinking about
My story. I have one and, yeah, I know all writers do. They all say it's their life's work too. Well, this one is and there's a good chance what free time I have is devoted to it in some way, shape, or form.
On a typical Friday night I am
Reading at home, gaming with friends, looking for the next Zardoz on Netflix.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
For a period of three years, I devoted myself to the search, if not for God, but for some sort of being or meaning in life. For spirituality. I went through every cult or religion known to man searching for meaning; I found nothing.

In the end the discovery I made was that I didn't need any of those things in order to live a full, happy, and meaningful life.
I’m looking for
  • Girls who like guys
  • Ages 21–32
  • Near me
  • Who are single
  • For new friends, long-term dating, short-term dating
You should message me if
1. If you've got the guts. I'm a pretty easy guy to talk to and if I'm not interested I'll politely let you know. Either way you will hear back from me. But I like a girl with balls... Figuratively...

2. If you're looking for a guy who doesn't play games. Not video games. Because I do play those. But I mean emotional and mental games. I'm a straightforward person with no interest in being jerked around. That aspect of dating lost its appeal years ago.

5. If you know what this references. Heh.

3! If you know what Zomb is and think grabbing a Nerf gun and running around a field sounds like a pretty good date.

4. If you're a nerd in some way, shape, or form.
