My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Hi, I'm Byron. I love talking about how things influence and affect society. I am reasonably cultured and interested in such things but I am not a supreme intellectual. I will challenge your assumptions as I hope you do mine as well. I don't like pretentiousness but I enjoy conversation. I like GOOD THINGS, but wouldn't put my baser desires on trial. I can be loud and obnoxious, and sometimes tend to ramble. If you bring up Star Trek, god help you! You may see your next lifetime before I shut up about it. I have a great deal of respect for deep thinkers and those who are willing to talk about the complexities of modern day life.
I am not angered very easily, but do have very strong opinions. I'm interested in gender studies and feminism and consider myself pretty well versed, and I'm always willing to get schooled by a super smart feminist. I'm open minded, and am considerate of others boundaries. That being said, I have a fairly high amount of energy, even if that energy isn't directed towards any specific type of activity.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I am an aspiring writer (read: hack.) I am writing and directing a webseries. (edit: as the webseries is starting in January, I will have serious time constraints for the next 3-5 months during the first season.) I love serialized television and movies, and am trying to have satisfying involvement in those industries very soon in my life. I'm a bartender downtown. I really enjoy dancing, and I'm actually rather good at it. If you want to dance, I'm so down. Though don't think I need anyone else to get me started, I'll probably be on the dance floor before you will.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Haha. I don't know. adapting to different situations. keeping my cool. Acting like a fool? Oh yeah, DANCING. I make a pretty good quinoa and mushroom salad.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I can be rather loud, and obnoxious, but in bursts. I am shy and than I EXPLODE WITH ENTHUSIASM. Sarcastic? Obsessed with internet memes? Glasses? Confounding? I believe most people really don't know what to think of me at first. I'm very contradictory, and a lot of people tend to think I'm either one thing or another, later to be completely surprised to find I am neither. What I'm saying is, I get better with time... hah.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Douglas Coupland is my favorite author. (Microserfs, Jpod.) Snow Crash, Halting State, Ender's Game, Red Mars (Kim Stanley Robinson is amazing) The Left Hand of Darkness (My Cat's name is Ursula K LeGuin.) Pretty much all David Sedaris (I haven't read Squirrel Seeks Chipmunk, and if you haven't listened to them as audiobooks, you've missed half of the experience) Less Than Zero, The Rules of Attraction, American Psycho (movie is great the book is amazing) The Big Lebowski, (I guess all Cohen Brothers stuff?) and Blade Runner are my favorite movies. (I know right? Another one?) Saw Take Shelter last year and I thought was the best movie I've seen in a very, very long time. The Fountain, Pi, Winter's Bone, Bill Cunningham NY, Alien, Moon, Kick-Ass, The Specials, Scott Pilgrim Vs The World, Shaun of the Dead, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, A Scanner Darkly, Slacker, Before Sunrise/Sunset, District 9, Cave of Forgotten Dreams, The New World, All Tarantino, Bottle Rocket, Rushmore, The Royal Tenenbaums, CQ, Memento, Insomnia, All the Marvel Movies, 2001, Batman: Mask of the Phantasm, Batman Begins, Night of the Living Dead (Original), Halloween, Paranormal Activity (i don't know i'm a sucker for them) The House of the Devil, V/H/S, The Shining, Star Trek, Louie, 30 Rock, Parks and Recreation, It's Always Sunny, X-Files, The West Wing, Arrested Development, The Sopranos, The Wire, Fringe. All my favorite TV. I'm sure you can gather my tastes from this list. I like music. David Bowie, The Hold Steady, LCD Soundsystem, Fleet Foxes, Vitalic, Lone, Destroyer, Kanye West, Smog, Lou Reed, Tears for Fears, New Order. I'm vegan so I eat a lot of these things: quinoa, avocado, black beans, black olives, spinach, corn, flax seeds, balsalmic vinegarette, bannanas, pears, i like fake meats but i'm starting to get away from them.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Uhm. Beans and Rice. Quinoa. DS9 reruns. Guayaki Yerba Mate. A copy of OK Computer and some way to listen to it. A good pair of socks. That's six, right?
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
The ethics and possibilities of technology and how it will help or harm us. The Future of the Internet. Why there aren't better female characters on TV. How to make the best Cheese Alternative.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
99% Chance I am at the theater working, but a good chance I'm getting drinks somewhere or at Sizzle Pie. I'm trying to drink less beer, despite the fact that I enjoy it.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I don't have any tattoos, nor do I want any.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You're cool with nerds and have good amounts of energy. I'm always down to hang out, get yerba mate. You would like to wander around the city. (unfortunately my current bike is in a sad state of affairs. I lied about the bike. It's been DOA for over a year now.) You want to go on a bad-ass date (i'm pretty good at just cooking up date ideas.) (Edit: So I'm not really looking for a relationship right now, so know that. More looking for friends/hang out type of thing. If there's chemistry sure, things happen.) You want to watch some X-files, TNG reruns.
