My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
What it is, everyone. My name is Ian, and thank you for taking the time to check out my profile. (Wait! Wait! Don't hit the "Back" button! It'll be fun, I promise!)

I'm a Northern California native who was born and raised in Redding (*sigh...* look it up on a map if you don't know where it is), though I also spent a couple years in Chico. I came to the Bay Area in 2009 (first to SF for school, then Oakland a year after I graduated), though I still make the trek up north on occasion and still have great friends and know a lot of amazing people up there.

I'm a one-time college radio DJ (KCSC, to be precise) and dropout from Chico State. A sometime student activist against budget cuts to higher education and graduate of SF State [BA, 2011, Sociology (oh, and there was that whole Occupy thing. Yeah, I was part of that, too)].

For work, I'm an agency temp at a warehouse in South Sac while I look for something more permanent. Not particularly glamorous, but I'll take it for right now.

On my days off, you can find me at a record shop, a show, at home cooking dinner for myself, or on a road trip somewhere.

For what it's worth, and it's probably not worth a whole hell of a lot.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Recently started a job up in Sacramento. Commuting from Oakland until I find a place up there because that's always a great idea, right? I don't know; I'm not that great at this whole "being a functional adult" thing.
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!
I'm short, pale, and not much to look at.
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. I don't listen to the radio, so I'm not necessarily down with (or even aware of) what all the cool young people are into. (But seriously, y'all; there's nothing quite like playing Wes Montgomery's "Bumpin'" LP on a rainy afternoon to take you to a different place).

Books: I read almost entirely non-fiction and I'm totally fine with that. Politics, history, sociology and popular culture to be more precise.

Movies: I'm trying to watch actual movies again, instead of relying on documentaries for my visual entertainment. And it's more motivation for me to get through my long Netflix queue. In any event, though, my favorite movies of all time would be The Shawshank Redemption and The Godfather, Part II.

Television: I'll watch it for the occasional sporting event or when I'm visiting family but I tend to stay away from it most of the 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.
Home-cooked food.
My record collection.
Family and friends.
Time alone to recharge.
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. The politics of music and the sociology of pop culture. Adding to my record collection. The origins and ultimate fate of the universe. Sports and the fortunes of my favorite teams (Raiders, Giants, Kings) in the coming season.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Depends on what's going on, but you can usually find me at a show (in Oakland, Sacramento or occasionally Chico), or sitting at home listening to records and making dinner for myself.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
If you wanna be friends with the possibility of being more. If you lean left. If you wanna see a show. If you live in Sacramento and wanna show me around. If you'd just love to get together sometime, get coffee or a drink, and get to know each other.

PS: I have zero interest in venturing down the Peninsula, so if that's where you post up, don't even bother.
