My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I realize my username is idiotic.

Anyway, I am an all-purpose nerd going through a modest (and seemingly interminable) quarter-life crisis re: you know, important stuff, like What I Want To Do and Making Positive Change in the World. This is mostly about me not knowing myself very well when I was a teenager.

Reviews from my pals:
"You're an exemplary dude."
"Hah, you're such a cat pushover. Remember when Harry would rub his teeth on your neck and you'd just sit there quietly whimpering?"
"I'm pretty sure I'm cooler than you." (my friends are 100% cooler than me)
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Work: computer stuff. I'm pretty low-grade, cf. that Education bit on my profile (I have two years towards an incomplete masters in math, due to non-academic Circumstances).

Not work: I'm going back to school for economics and sociology (part-time for now), and try to keep myself busy with various artsy projects.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Neologisms, puns, being somewhat knowledgable on a broad scale, connecting like *this* with dogs, deftly navigating the MBTA buses. I'm pretty good at math and physics. Friends and roommates seem to think I'm a really good blues guitarist, about which I probably have some self-esteem issues.

Things I'm not so good at: penmanship, drawing things comprehensibly, remembering key elements of the plot in books/TV shows, eating healthily.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
From a distance I am nicely dressed, but up close I suffer clinical-grade sartorial malfunction.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I read way too much, seriously. I know people say that a lot. My favorite fiction writer is William Gaddis; Paul Beatty, Donald Barthelme, and Toni Morrison are also up there; nonfiction might be Ta-Nehisi Coates or Catharine Mackinnon, and poetry is Louise Glück or Charles Wright. My overall fave/hero is Ralph Ellison - go read Shadow and Act! Lately I've been reading a lot about 20th century urban history and civil rights.

I'm not hugely into comics, but I love Guardians of the Galaxy (haven't seen the movie yet).

Music: blues, jazz, hip-hop. Representatives include Booker White, Memphis Minnie, Thelonious Monk, Lee Morgan, Jean Grae, and Pharoahe Monch. B.B. King is my lifelong Guitar Idol; I probably won't show you the shrine on a first date. Stuff like this is my comfort music:

Movies: Ratatouille is obviously the greatest film ever made, but also My Winnipeg, Killer of Sheep, Gates of Heaven (Morris), The Up Series, The Emperor's New Groove, Jackie Brown, Control Room, City of God, Dr. Strangelove, Paths of Glory. I like dumb action movies if they aren't politically icky.

TV: The Wire, Police Squad!, Orange Is the New Black, Everybody Hates Chris, Mad Men, Blackadder (<3), FLCL, Adventure Time, Gravity Falls.

Food: I'm pescetarian and will die for fried clams. At home I eat mostly vegan, but I can really tear through some eggs. I also tear through hot sauce, about which I've become a budget-level connoisseur.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
- books
- a guitar
- coffee, and I guess places where I can buy coffee and catch up on reading
- an ecigarette, hopefully without any/too many real ones (it's tough)
- something to write with
- something jazzy, music-wise

And requisite stuff about friends, family, love, etc, which almost goes without saying except that I don't want you to think I'm a cold, asocial, stimulant-fueled nerd.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Apartheid, momentum, Phil Upchurch, algebra, work, whatever I'm reading, etc.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?

This is the part where I should mention that I don't drink very much these days due to medical shizz - two drinks in a night is normally my max, depending on how I feel. Drunkenness isn't going to kill me; I'll just be lethargic and quiet and no fun, and will wake up with a cosmologically-sized hangover.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Occasionally I log out and, out of anthropological interest, look at other men's profiles from the "similar to" box on mine. OKCupid is the cruelest mirror.
