My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I am equal parts Dante Hicks and Peter Gibbons.

Really, though, I'm just a guy in my late twenties looking to move onto the next phase of life.

I can also be a rather snarky, cynical bastard (with a hopelessly romantic side) with a sense of humor that ranges from the deadpan to the dark to the simply absurd. A few biographical notes:

* I was born and raised in Redding, a city where old folks go to retire and young people go to start families.
* I spent three years in Chico after high school--two unsuccessful years at Chico State followed by a year of living in a punk house. (During my time at Chico State, I was also a DJ at campus radio station KCSC, an experience I continue to miss immensely.)
* I finally returned to school in 2007--first to finish up my GE at Shasta College, then to SF State in 2009, from which I graduated with a BA in Sociology in 2011. (During my time at SF State, I was also involved somewhat in organizing against budget cuts to education and participated in a few student coalitions which never quite got off the ground for various reasons.)
* I moved to Oakland in June of 2012 after deciding that life in SF was just too damn expensive.

I love to nerd out on matters both musical (subcultures, oral histories, the process of recording and production) and technological (Linux, FOSS, retro-computing, vintage hi-fi) in my spare time. I'm the kind of guy that will use a computer in order to use a computer.

That's most of it; now here's the rest of it.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I've got a Bachelor of Arts in Sociology, yet I work as a produce clerk at a grocery store in San Francisco. Go figure.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Why don't you tell me, chief?
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Definitely the bags under my eyes. And my height. And the deceptively angry look on my face. Other than that, I'm not too sure.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Music: Favorite band of all time is The Beatles, with Bad Religion a close second. I'm mostly into punk, hardcore, jazz, country (think Wayne Hancock), metal, hip-hop, folk, and ska.

Books: Non-fiction, mostly; politics, political theory, history, and music/pop-culture.

Movies: I know it sounds weird, but I prefer documentaries to actual movies. There's just so much to learn and so little time to learn it! My favorite movie of all time, though, is a tie between The Shawshank Redemption and The Godfather, Part II.

Television: I find it to be a tremendous waste of time.

Food: Meat and potatoes. No avocados, though. Or mushrooms. FUCK NO NOT MUSHROOMS. UGH.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
My computer (let's be honest here).
My record collection.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Past experiences and lessons learned. Making plans for where I'm gonna be and what I'm gonna be doing when I hit 30. The politics of music and the sociology of countercultures. Adding to my record collection.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Playing records in my room. Watching documentaries on Netflix or YouTube. At a punk show. Cooking dinner for myself. On an impromptu road trip and hanging with friends up at home. But most likely working.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I feel like I was born fifteen years late. I guess that explains my fondness for bands like Huey Lewis & the News.
