My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Nerdy cat owner, in charge of digital media production at a CUNY college.

I can be pretty sarcastic, dry, random and observant. Very much into technology and media consumption (bask in the glory of my 500+ DVD/Bluray media shelf), but I also enjoy the outdoors and things like playing soccer, bike riding, hiking and basically just wandering around. I play video games, though not nearly as much as when I was a teenager. Oh, Phantasy Star Online and those 250 hours you took away from me in high school.

I drink lots of tea, but never alcohol or coffee. Very socially liberal and politically aware (listens to NPR, watches Rachel Maddow every morning, etc.) though fairly fiscally conservative. I can also be a bit stubborn, but very passionate in what I believe in.

In alternate universes I am either Batman or an urban planner.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Because of my super useful MEDIA STUDIES degree, I work at a college with the fancy title of DIGITAL CONTENT MANAGER. So me and my team of artsy misfits go around campus covering all the various events (sports games, lectures, music concerts, theatre, etc.). We edit the video and I post it to our campus YouTube channel and website. I also get to wear an IT hat, managing 70TB+ of data, setting up Macs, SANs and other technical things, while also helping students and faculty with digital media problems.

When I get home I start my other job of CAT MAINTENANCE SUPERVISOR. I adopted Garfunkel when he was nine from the Humane Society because he looked awesome and was there for almost a year since nobody likes adopting older pets. He's sixteen now, but still fairly active. We also fought diabetes and kicked its ass, which is great because my schedule is too erratic to reliably give him insulin shots every twelve hours. Yes, cats can go into diabetic remission. Oh, he also has no teeth left now. But he's still awesome.

Excluding work and the cat, most of what I do is fairly low-key and involves hanging out with friends. I'm trying to travel more.

To elaborate on my erratic work schedule, because it's based on when events happen on campus, at least once a week I'm probably working until 9 or 10pm, or coming in on a Saturday. Then I get random days off sometimes. There's no real pattern to it.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Witty one-liners and dry, sarcastic comments.

Observing things and then usually tweeting them. On the flip side, this makes me not like to discuss private things outside. See, I knew I should become a detective. *puts on detective hat while noir music starts playing in the background*

Digital media stuff and hoarding (archiving) digital files. I can pull up saved AOL IMs from 1995.

Anything (mostly) Apple related and pretending Windows doesn't exist.

Buying things off Amazon.com and helping to keep the USPS pension fund solvent with my PO Box.

Statistics and budgeting. But otherwise, I hate math.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My sexy glasses. ... or maybe that I'm wearing green, because I wear green a lot. Or that I'm not wearing jeans, because I don't own a pair of jeans.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books: When I read books, it's almost never fiction. Usually I'll read things related to societal issues, or about companies or people I find interesting (Steve Jobs, Apple, Amazon.com, etc.).

Music: I tend to listen to podcasts the most (NPR: Planet Money, This American Life, Intelligence Squared and the various TWiT shows), but I also enjoy classic rock (The Beatles) and have tons of video game and movie soundtracks. Occasionally a pop song, or a terrible but catchy rap song will enter the playlist and be repeated a lot until I become sick of it.

TV: 24, American Dad, Castle, CSI, CSI: NY, The Daily Show, Dexter, Family Guy (first three seasons), Frontline, Futurama, Get Smart, Home Improvement, Seinfeld, The Shield, The Simpsons (season eight and prior only), Sonic the Hedgehog (SatAM Sonic), Southland, The Wonder Years

Reality TV is kind of a guilty pleasure for me sometimes. Gordon Ramsay is awesome.

Movies: I have many favorite films, but if we're talking about the ones I could watch over and over again: Beverly Hills Cop, Die Hard, Die Hard: With a Vengeance, Eagle vs. Shark, Goodfellas, Scott Pilgrim vs. The World, The Shawshank Redemption, The Social Network, The Taking of Pelham One, Two, Three (1974), True Lies

In terms of genres, mostly comedy, action (action-comedy) and documentary. I like horror, but let's be real, horror films are basically comedies.

Food: I'm pescatarian, so that means vegetarian plus seafood. Anything from fake meat, to sushi, pasta, pizza, etc. I can be pretty picky though. I don't like Thai food, for example.

How can this not include video games? In terms of genres, I love platformers and RPGs. As for specifics, here's a random list of some favorites. I'm sure I'm forgetting stuff: Panzer Dragoon Saga, Shining Force (series), Sonic the Hedgehog (series), SimCity (series), Burning Rangers, Streets of Rage (series), Metal Gear Solid (only the original), Ratchet and Clank (series), Super Mario RPG, Yoshi's Island, Skies of Arcadia, Katamari Damacy (series).
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Public transportation, since I never plan on owning a car, nor do I know how to drive. This kind of limits me to NYC, Chicago and San Francisco unless I move out of the country.

An iPhone with unlimited data. Oh yeah, I'm grandfathered in. Who wants to touch me? Mm, baby. ... what?

A cat.

The internet. How else would I shop and find random memes?

Friends and the wacky adventures that come with them.

Glasses, because I would be blind without them, and bump into things like a confused old man. That is, ultimately, my future - isn't it?
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
What's up with this "race to the bottom" mentality that so many Americans seem to have? Since when did "union" become a dirty word? Growing up in the 60s probably would've been fun. Maybe I would've hung out with Steve Jobs and did LSD, yo'.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
It depends. Perhaps a movie, comedy club (UCB), dinner with friends and randomly wandering around, just staying in binge-watching a tv show, playing video games or board games, or something like that.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I've never been to a music concert. Although I would probably go to something like "Video Games Live!"

I don't know why OkC thinks I'm "more dominant."
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
If you just want to say hello. Maybe you want to swap cat pics, because we're both crazy cat people. Or you want to discuss why Batman is the only super hero that matters. Or how Sega was cooler back when NINTENDON'T. Really just anything nerdy or interesting is fine.
