My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Good (insert proper time of day greeting that you are viewing this)!

Grab a beverage (it's okay, I will wait until you find one), sit back, and learn all there is to know (well not all, but hopefully enough knowledge to know if you want to talk to this guy or not. I sure hope you do, because I think you are pretty cool for clicking on my profile to begin with) about this echolden guy.

echolden's History in 200 words or less or How I stopped worrying about trying to wow you all with flair and just put down the nitty gritty details:

I moved to Seattle about ten years ago from NYC and am enjoying myself in Seattle. I grew up in a small town in Northwest Ohio and got the hell out of dodge as soon as I could. I love to watch movies, going on long walks, eating at interesting places in this great city, finding a quiet place to read, getting lost and finding my way back home (I get lost a lot, but never the same way twice), and finding a place to have a drink where I don't have to shout (i miss my old dive bars, it seems they all have become sports bars with a ton of LCD monitors...alas).

echolden quick facts:

I have been called quick witted, charming, kind, and a bunch of expletives that I am sure that were meant as a compliment.

I have a problem saying the following words:
- Salad and Solid
- Single and Signal

I am a sucker for a clever cat photo meme (hell sometimes a not so clever one).

I am a World Records Holder (along with 5,785 other people).

My new philosophy on how to live life is taken from the main rule in improv comedy: "Yes, and..."

I will admit my mistakes which will haunt me until...

...I replay my entire day in my mind before going to bed every evening. This is a very humbling practice, sometimes one does not realize one is being an asshole until much later in the day.

I am positive that human evolution peaked when we started putting ice cubes in our drinks to water them down or cool them.

I have a gym membership, but often opt to go on crazy long walks throughout this city with a backpack full of books instead.

ok, I lied, here is some flair. *sparkle* *fizzz* *crack crack pop* and for the grand finale <razzmatazz>
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I love my job.

I have been cigarette free for longer than Obama has been in the white house.

Taking really long walks with no purpose (until it hits the time to go home, then there is purpose to the long walk in reverse) except to explore the city.

I also am kind of angry being in the year 2011 and I still do not have a flying car or jetpack. **UPDATE** I have come to terms with my non jetpack having society. A majority of Americans can't ride a bike without being an asshole, I would hate to see what assholery would happen with jetpacks! I will gladly exchange my dream for a jetpack with universal health care and a burrito the size of my head.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Solving problems. I am like a one man A-Team, minus the gold chains and the cigars. I do love it when a plan comes together though (I may pick up gold chains, if the plan is amazing enough).
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Not sure, you tell me if fate decides for us to meet.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books: Stranger in a Strange Land, The Master and Margarita, The Sirens of Titan (can't believe I forgot to put that in here the first time), The Outlaws Guide to Literature, Electric Kool-Aid Acid Test, Junky, The Rum Diary, The Grapes of Wrath, Mr. Nice. and Ready Player One (not for it's literary genius, but it filled a big void in my pop culture hole).

Currently reading: Astoria.

Podcasts: Harmontown, WTF, How did this Get Made?, and Nerd Poker.

TV: Bunk, Community, Breaking Bad, Mad Men, Arrested Development, and Wilfred.

Hobbies: 3D Modeling (for Work and Play), puppetry, and trying to learn the ukulele (or at least looking at my poor ukulele with ever building guilt from the neglect).

Movies: The Abyss, They Live, The Muppet Movie, Pitch Black, A Face in the Crowd, The Man Who Would be King, and Singing in the Rain. <--- is my short list, I pretty much love most movies, the last movie that I hated was Funny Games (It made me so mad, that I reported the disc lost from netflix, paid the penalty fee, and then took the disk outside and smashed it on the street).

Music: MGMT, The Rolling Stones, Ween, Of Montreal, Gang Gang Dance, The Velvet Underground, St. Vincent, CHVRCHES, The Wu Tang Clan, Chilly Gonzales...I like it all (well almost all of it, crap is crap no mater how you package it).

Food: I will eat anything but shrimp, actually most crustaceans kinda freak me out. I guess if you deep fry em, they may be okay, deep fried food is like natures way of gift wrapping a time bomb for your heart.

To sum it up all up: I like pretty much everything, or at least will give it a chance...even if I hate it...even if I hated it after giving it a chance last year...or the year before that...even if it still owes me five bucks, or said something mean about my mother at the last church social tea.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
iPhone ( even though I hit information overload at times, glad they put an off button on that sucker!), books of all shapes and genres, ice in my drink, comfortable pair of shoes, good friends, and cheese...lots and lots of cheese (with cheese sprinkled on top).
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
What I could invent that would make me millions, and then googling the idea and cursing the person who beat me to it.

How to make puppets come alive in front of a camera. or Why are there so many songs about rainbows?
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Decompressing from a week of zany adventures and tomfoolery.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I am a mere mortal man and can not leap over tall buildings; but that hasn't stopped me from trying, or will keep me from trying again when the moment feels right.

I also do not own a car, or plan on owning a car any time soon. I will however rent a car if needed; but I love the challenge of mass transit, and the peace a decent walk brings.
