I guess the first thing you should know about me is just how much I try to laugh. I've got a knack for spotting the absurdities in life and take great pleasure in laughing at them. I like movies, and not in the sense of just watching movies, I like to study them. I think you can tell a lot about someone based on their favorite movies. I'm often told that I am far too harsh in my criticism of movies, but I think if you're gonna do something, you should do it well. I would like to say that I'm laidback, but this seems to be a misnomer to me; sometimes I like to sit forward, and occasionally stand upright. I think a far more accurate word would be relaxed or mellow and even those aren't wholly accurate.
I'm a realist. If it sounds like a good time, I say do it. I mean, the reality is that not everything is gonna work out the way you want it to, but I never let the probability of failure or catastrophe stop me from trying.
Homer: Kids, there's three ways to do things. The right way, the wrong way and the Max Power way!
Bart: Isn't that the wrong way?
Homer: Yeah, but faster!
What I’m doing with my life
Work, dog, friends, games, repeat. Plus I'm looking forward to getting some new stamps on my passport in the coming year.
I’m really good at
Having an encyclopedic knowledge of movies, a near perfect sense of comedic timing, telling stories, sarcasm, video games, and snapping wet towels. Like Indiana Jones good.Oh, and I can speak entirely in Simpson's quotes.
The first things people usually notice about me
My dark hair, and I've got eyes that shift colors from light green
to light blue, my height, my ever expanding vocabulary
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books - anything by Don Winslow, a song of ice and fire series, world war z, assorted comics, and I just picked up "The Walking Dead and Philosophy". I haven't started yet but I'm really looking forward to it.

Music- Slayer, Anthrax, Amon Amarth, The Real Mackenzies, Ex Deo, Meshuggah, Black Tusk, Kingdom of Sorrow, Rob Zombie, Iced Earth, Blind Guardian, Dropkick Murphys, All That Remains, Lamb of God, As Blood Runs Black, Blood or Whisky, Chthonic, Ensiferum, Kataklysm, Primordial, Machine Head, Silent Civillian. Plus a smattering of rap, punk, folk, and the odd top20 song.
Shows- Breaking Bad, Archer, The Simpsons, American Dad, Spartacus, The Shield, Suits, American Horror Story, South Park, Hell on Wheels, The Walking Dead.
Food- along with the typical assortment (sushi, tacos, etc) I really like looking for food I've never had before
The six things I could never do without
1. My dog
2. Fine liquor
3. My friends
4. My sense of humor
5. My freedom
6. My dog
And the gym gets an honorable mention.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Far too much, or maybe not enough...I'm not certain...I'll have to think about it.
On a typical Friday night I am
Friday nights are rather mundane because of when I get home from
work, I usually go out on Saturday. However, when I do go out on
Friday it's usually drinks with friends, movies, and the
occasional concert or comedy club.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
If I admit to it, it ceases to be private.
