In my free time I'm reading as much as I can, listening to a broad spectrum of music, and watching a wide range of movies and television programs, as per usual. Whenever I find the time and inclination to do so, I try to teach myself foreign languages in the most unorganized and easily distracted fashion, so I now have a woefully inadequate grasp on rudimentary Russian, Spanish, Latin, French, German, Italian, and Japanese (and 'woefully inadequate' is probably giving me too much credit).
Books: I read quite a great deal, with a focus on classic and contemporary literary fiction and select authors from a wide range of genres (a handful of favorites include Pushkin, Dostoevsky, Tolstoy, Chekhov, Faulkner, Flannery O'Connor, Graham Greene, Haruki Murakami, Terry Pratchett).
Movies: My favorite movies tend to be so-called art films, but I am by no means excessively highbrow and enjoy a wide range of genres (favorite directors include the Coens, Kieslowski, Kurosawa, Truffaut, Bergman, Tarkovsky, Werner Herzog). There are numerous guilty pleasures I would be reluctant to admit to liking up front (of the "I like it, but, yeah, it's a pretty terrible movie" variety), but I'm not ashamed to admit I've never lost my love for Disney/Pixar films (which are, of course, generally pretty amazing).
Television: Although I can be pretty selective about the shows I watch, I probably need to watch less television in general; some of my favorite shows: Community, Parks and Recreation, Louie, The Wire, Breaking Bad, Mad Men, Arrested Development, Party Down, Peep Show, Extras, Game of Thrones, the oeuvre of Joss Whedon. I also am a big fan of quite a broad range of animated programs.
Also--and this probably important--I'm not nearly as pretentious as I may initially seem, and there's a pretty drastic difference between how I write and how I speak (although there are more than a few similarities). Quite a few people have told me they find me very funny, although most of what passes for humor with me isn't really designed to make any kind of sense, or catered to any audience but myself. If you like inexplicable wordplay and copious tangential absurdities in your conversation, there's at least a good chance you may find you're my kind of people. Like I said, text-based first impressions are something of a weak point, so that's sort of a "real world"-only deal.
Finally, if you've read this far, it's probably obvious that I'm not exactly a huge fan of this profile. Though I've made some minor edits to it over the years (this being easily the largest), for the most part this is the same profile I wrote *years* ago (and honestly, even then I probably cobbled most of it together from profiles written for completely different dating sites). I'd tear it down and start from scratch, but even the thought of having to write something like this again...strike that--I don't want to even think about it. That said, I suppose that as a thumbnail sketch it's probably fairly accurate.
