My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
(Update: I'm currently involved in a relationship. I should warn you about that upfront. Someone from here as a matter of fact! 99% match. Although we're open to other partners, that's not why I'm on. I'm also always interested in meeting new friends. That's always cool. I met some neat people through here. Honestly, if I'm browsing your profile right now it's because I'm really interested in the social dynamics of dating sites. I love hearing the stories of relationships in the 21st century. I'm also working on a dating app, so there's that too. If you still feel like contacting me, go nuts. I won't bother you, however. I don't want to waste anyone's time.)

Normally, this is the part where a person says what's so great about themselves. Well, I've always been one for doing things a little different. I'm a pretty happy and confident guy. I like my life. I work as a writer and computer consultant, and I'm starting a new microbrewery this summer. I'm looking for someone who is intelligent and fun. I don't want to waste anyone's time, so I'm going to talk a little bit about what the drawbacks are to going out with me.

First, I don't want drama in my life. You know the difference between a drama and a comedy according to classic theater? In a drama, everyone dies. That seems like a drawback. I'm an honest guy who looks for the same in my friends. I would rather a person be rude rather than keeping their opinions hidden. If you groove on everything being dramatic, I'm probably the wrong guy. If you want someone to argue with, I'm not going be him.

I'm also not going to get most of your pop culture references. Soon as hockey season is over, my TV tends to gather dust. I don't watch "Dancing with the Stars" and I couldn't recognize a Kardashian if one bit me. I'm more likely to bust out a line about James K. Polk, Neil Degrasse Tyson, or Proust instead. Don't mind if that's your thing, but it's not mine. Sorry!

Finally, I'm a Father before I'm anything else. Nothing is more important to me than my son. If you have children, I would hope you feel the same way. I love kids, while at the same time I think it's important to take things slow when they're involved.

That being said, here's what you do get. You get a guy who can make you laugh. You get a guy who likes his scotch served neat, his beer at a proper temperature, and can mix a mean drink for you. You get a guy who change a tire, write a poem, cook a meal, pilot a plane, shoot a gun, program a computer, fix a sink, change a diaper, keep a clear head in an emergency, and tell you useless trivia about the platypus. You get a guy who, when he is with you, is actually interested in who you are and what you have to say. You get a guy you can talk to, and in time trust. I'm an open book, even if some chapters are twisty and odd like James Joyce on a bender.

Who are you? Well, hopefully you're a person who is independent, intelligent and is genuinely happy in her life. You like a little adventure, and you're the first to try new foods. You're open to all sorts of new music and art. You're open to new ideas, and you can take life in stride. You're not looking for anyone to change you, but at the same time you don't feel like changing anyone else either. You're looking for someone to share your life with, not to be dependent upon. You're open and free and in love with the world. You can be just as comfortable in the city as you are in the country.

Who knows. In the big roulette game of life we place our bets and let the wheel spin. Let's take a chance.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Oh, I've done a little of everything in my life. I've been a game designer, writer, card player, fortune teller, repo man, skip tracer, juggler. Now I work as a computer consultant and writer.

I'm entering into a new phase where I'm opening up a new brewery. Roller coaster fun ahead! At least I'll always have beer on tap when you visit.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.

I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
They don't. I'm a ninja. They shall never notice until I step out of the ever concealing shadows.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I strongly believe that the American character can best be understood by reading three books. Catch-22 for the insanity of the modern age. Moby Dick, because it's a rorschach test of the reader, and Huck Finn, because it's simply the best book ever.

Music? I need variety. I love pretty much everything, but my music shuffle is as vast as my interests. Former punk, but I love bluegrass, hip hop, country, rock, blues, jazz, classical, and the sound of my head being driven repeatedly into the floor. Not the last one. Just checking to see if you're still reading this. My holy trinity is Tom Waits, Johnny Cash and Frank Sinatra. The apostles would be the Clash, "Tennessee" Ernie Ford, Social Distortion, Ella Fitzgerald, Asylum Street Spankers, Chuck D and Public Enemy, John Lee Hooker, Carl Orff, Miles Davis, Katzenjammer, Wu Tang, The Cramps and whatever happens to be playing on my iPod. Latest bands I've been really enjoying are Gangstagrass (hip hop/bluegrass band), Tilly and the Wall, The Mountain Goats, Hayes Carll and Grouplove.

Movies? Well, I love classics such as Duck Soup, The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance, The Third Man and the like. I'm also a big fan of trashy grindhouse movies and cult classics. Total bonus points if anyone has seen "The Forbidden Zone" with Hervé Villechaize!

Television somehow became cool in the past decade. Loved the Wire, Deadwood and the like. Grooving a bit to Game of Thrones (like everyone else). Even like some modern comedies such as It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia, Community and Louie. The new Sherlock series on the BBC is incredible as well.

As for food...I eat pretty much everything. I'm a hell of a cook with a big garden for some fresh produce. Just try me!
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
My son.
My dog.
My phone.
My spleen.
Gravity being a universal constant.
Good books, good music, good food and friends!
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
My bathroom. Previous owner had installed mirrors on the ceiling, the walls, the doors, all over. As one walks out of the shower each morning, you are faced with myriad images of yourself as you truly are. There is no way to hide yourself. You must decide, each morning, who you are. Are you awesome today, or do you want to eat a bullet? It's a strange room of infinite awareness.

Well, perhaps not all that, but it does take up more time in my skull than it should. I still have no idea if I'll take them down or not. People who come to my parties seem to like them.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit

I once shot a man...just for snoring too loud. Wait. That's the most private thing Billy the Kid would be willing to admit. I dunno. I'm a let it hang out kind of guy. No time for shame.

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
If you know who Norman Borlaug is, but still aren't quite sure what a snookie might be. Damn. That might rule out most folks. (Hint: He saved over a billion human lives. Put that in your pipe and smoke it, Superman!)
