Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I try not to take myself too seriously...but I also try not to take
"not taking myself too seriously" too seriously.
I have a very strong sense of "cheesiness" (so every now and then I
can't help but read what I've written here, cringe, and delete it
all). It's a pretty damaging way to live, but that's what separates
me from most people. In a somewhat ironic twist this has taught me
to better appreciate the hard work of others even when I don't like
the end result.
If you're with me so far, then we'd probably get along.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Moved from Alabama to Portland to San Francisco.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Being clever (hit or miss), guitar (impressive but usually boring
because I improvise instrumentals..Ii try to keep it to myself),
practicing things I'm terrible at, other things that I won't
enumerate here, philosophy, being objective, making good decisions,
making seemingly bad decisions that always turn out to be good
decisions, parentheses, not being judgemental, cooking.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I seem to be ranging between well-kempt frat boy, uptight nerd, and
moderately cool. I think it completely depends on the shagginess of
my beard, and how often I use "kempt" in conversation.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I'm not medium-ist...if it's art, it's art. If it's great art, then
I like it. But, to conform to the norm:
Books: Anything written by someone trying to express an idea and
not trying to prove how smart they are (I'm looking at you,
mathematics textbook writers from the 80's!)
Shows: Humorous shows mostly...if it's a humorous detective show
I'm there. Futurama, Harvey Birdman, Archer, Doctor Who...blah blah
Movies: Gene Wilder, Richard Pryor, Mel Brooks movies. Select Mel
Gibson movies (I'm still upset that he's insane). Movies that lend
themselves to being made fun of (MST3K). To shorten this list: Most
of the movies that are widely popular because they're really
interesting, funny, or unique.
Music: Led Zeppelin, Edward Sharp and the Magnetic Zeroes, A lot of
60's and 70's classic rock/folk and a select group of 2000's indie
Food: I love caramel apples. Other than that, I'll eat most things
and be happy about it. Except for fucking sour cream and cilantro.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
I hate this question so much I can't even think of a humorous way
to express my disdain (though I did think of a decent synonym for
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
everything....EVERYTHING...all the time. Economics,
platypuses, theories on music popularity, politics, manufacturing
processes, software development, dogs, space exploration, relative
humor, social theory, furniture, life goals, food, software ideas,
guitar techniques, blah, blah, etc.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
I'm bored...not on Fridays, necessarily, but by this question. I
guess lately I've been playing night ultimate and then getting
beers. And sometimes those events merge a bit.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
Message me if you're awesome. And not that "Oh, I'm major awesome"
with fake bravado kind of awesome (though that is appreciated
friend-wise), but the real-deal, "I'm a considerate person with
well-developed philosophical notions and a great need to express
both my intellect and emotions" kind of awesome.
Or if you're also hyper-sensitive to cliché usage and appreciate
humor that builds from that.
Or you like me solely for my looks...I honestly think those are the
healthiest relationships. (*actually not complete sarcasm)
Or if you just think I'm kind of cool.
Note: I typically get along better with low-key eccentrics, I.e.
You have idiosyncrasies, but they don't define you, you define
