My self-summary
These sorts of things are always impossible to express and actually cover 1/10 about oneself. Fortunately, that's what conversations are for. Still, I'll give a shot at least enough background to convey an idea of who I am. At least I hope.

I'm a fairly eccentric sort of fellow seeking oddities. A companion to share such oddities would be nice too.

I'm easily distracted and excitable. I like tangents and getting lost and waffles.

Originally, I hail from Edisto Island, SC. It's an island the size of Manhattan with a year round population of 1000, so social protocol is sometimes beyond me. I grew up socializing with retired people in the south. It's not my fault. They stopped caring about social protocol a long time ago.

Imagination is escape. I especially love sci-fi, horror, and fantasy. I enjoy pretty much any sort of media content, especially comics, television, and movies.

Interesting people are rare, subversive people are rarer. It's best to meet as many as possible. The weirder the better. I seem to have an affinity for that sort of thing; weird is sexy.

I am frequently barefoot.

I only resemble one celebrity, Wil Wheaton, but I get it ALL THE TIME. At least among TNG fans. That's what I tell myself, to be honest, most of them probably only know him from Big Bang Theory, a show which I refuse to acknowledge on grounds of cultural taste and the general affront to nerdom that show generally represents.

Not sure what else to say. I'm no good at this one-sided 'getting to know you' thing. Besides, it's more interesting to get to know each other in conversation.

So I guess I'll leave it at this. I'm an open book, so if you have any questions, fire away. Or if you are just bored and want to distract yourself with a conversation, then that's ok too.
What I’m doing with my life
I am presently taking some time off bouncing between the Charleston, SC area and Little Switzerland, NC doing some writing. I'm a graduate PhD student in the English department at UF. I study pop-culture/new media/theory and plan on applying said knowledge and theory to the real world. Or running a BBQ Bar. Or drifting aimlessly attempting to gain every experience I can before I die. Maybe all three. Life is too chaotic to make plans or have too many ambitions.

I wanna be seduced to the song Brand New Key.
I’m really good at
rambling, drinking, thinking, video games, making bad puns, making good puns, reading theory, cooking, lecturing (which is frequently the same as rambling), writing (on occasion, I've got skills), getting messy, constructing neologisms, other such stuff and things
The first things people usually notice about me
It's a toss up between my Darwin's peak (pointed ears), one of my arm tattoos or my 3 piece suits (if I'm wearing one). Also, my pocketwatch is very shiny. People like shiny things, right?

According to Spotify, I have recently been listening to an excessive amount of:
Old 97s, Parker Millsap, Fruit Bats, Clem Snide, Arctic Monkeys, The Mountain Goats, Middle Brother, Shovels and Rope, Lucinda Williams, Arc Iris, and The Muppets Green Album. And then a whole lot of Motown and 50s and 60s Soul. So, that probably says something about my present state of mind, which reads lots of Alt Country with an after taste of silly, who then retires into the body of a retiree. Apparently, you can also eat my state of mind, preferably with soft cheese and mild crackers.

Food: I cook a great deal at home because I have trouble finding restaurants I really like. I can grill most anything. My specialty is Carolina style pulled pork bbq, fixins included (naturally)
Also, Feta Cheese. For some reason, I can't get enough of it. I eat it by the block. I shouldn't... but I do.

Also, Gorgonzola is a monster cheese, and it should be feared and respected.

On a typical Friday night I am

The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I will dig into a cave and watch marathons of series on SyFy channel when desperate boredom sets in.
