My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Details obviously mean nothing. Several years and several edits later, I've come to realize it doesn't matter how articulate, thoughtful, or detailed this profile is - women don't want someone who is actually sensitive or intelligent, because it frightens them.

Naw, ya'll would rather have some 'bad boy' with a half dozen illegitimate kids and mountains of debt (including back child support) than someone who took the time to strategically plan a future for themselves without all that baggage.

I will challenge your perceptions, if you're brave enough. I will respect your unique character, if you can see mine. I will be honest and straightforward, if you don't want to play games.

I know, scary.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
In my dreams I'm a writer, lover, traveler, scholar, and hero. Dreams don't always translate to reality very well but I do write, I care deeply about people who make an effort to connect, I drove 1,600 miles to live in a new place, I'm always learning and I have saved the day many a time.

Looking for someone to be there in the good times, support in the rough times, and share in the spoils of a difficult life in a world hell-bent on making actual progress impossible for regular people.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I like biking, hiking, fixing things, building things, I'm great at gardening, general problem solving (as long as it isn't my problem), automotive repair/upgrades (a geeky gearhead) and laying like a piece of driftwood on the beach.

I used to make cat furniture and throw raves and deliver pizza and I was good at all of those things too, but that sort of thing doesn't really show up in my resume.

I'm really good at saying the things nobody else wants to say but thinks, and ignoring the things other people say but don't actually mean while picking up on the in-between.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
That I'm opinionated, passionate, and not at all cut from the same cloth as most. If you can't pick me out of a crowd then you aren't looking very hard.

On the other hand, I've been known to disappear into the surroundings and just watch the way people interact, so they dont even notice me unless I want them to.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I read anything that interests me but lean heavily to science fiction/fantasy - Terry brooks, Greg Bear, Terry Pratchett, Neil Gaimen, Dan Simmons.
I listen to a lot of techno but I have an extensive music collection (250+ GB, which is, frankly, more music than I'll ever have the chance to listen to). I was raised on classic rock - Yes, Pink Floyd, Zepplin, BTO, Beatles, etc. When I was 5 I was introduced to KISS. The same person introduced me to NIN about 7 years later, and about a year after that took me to my first rave. I was 14 and already into music most of my classmates had never heard of. I'm down with jazz,classical, hip-hop(atmosphere, beastie boys, etc.), industrial, trance, techno, downtempo/ambient, drum and bass. dj shadowdj krushdj foodfrankie bonesstewart walkerninja tuneorbitalrichie hawtinmarilyn mansondj mishjadj sonaracg3carl coxessential mixesskreamdubstepvenetian snaressister machine gunradioheaddavid bowiedepeche modeplaidthievery corporationwhite zombiebassment jaxxchemical brotherjuno reactorpsytranceidmbeckaphex twinthe orbswayzakdieselboyom recordsderrick cartermassive attackwhite zombie. I helped establish a thriving techno scene in Iowa and I'm always listening to one of my dj/producer friends' new mixes, they tend to seek out my advice as well. I DONT LISTEN TO SHITTY TECHNO/ELECTRONICA - I feel defensive about the perception that it's all the same crap but it truly is not. Thats like saying country and rock both suck because they both use guitars. Obviously I'm passionate about music of all genres so ask me if you want to know more. I loath most newer pop music and modern country, and I refuse to listen to the radio unless I absolutely have to. I'd rather stick a hot poker into my ear canal. So much better stuff out there...

I used to watch too much TV, surfing cable channels like Nat Geo, Discovery, History, Comedy Central, Adult Swim, Sci-fi, FX, etc. I'm also known to watch the news channels every now and then but most of my current info comes from the extensive net surfing I do. I'm a Joss Whedon fan - Firefly, Angel, Buffy Dollhouse. Also SG1/SG Atlantis, daily show, simpsons, family guy, american dad, and speedvision, namely Formula 1 racing, which is the pinnacle of all motorsports/racing in the world. Not a big fan of NASCAR or most of your other televised sporting events but I will watch. Just keep me well lubricated whilst viewing. I don not, however, own a TV and prefer to obtain my entertainment online, without commercials and whole seasons at a time. Just easier that way.

Food is good, yes. I like Anthony Bourdains No Reservations show and secretly lust to be able to go out and sample the world in that way. Someday I plan to travel and enjoy real foreign foods. I'm a pretty good cook and have been trying new things from the various international stores. I really enjoy hosting gatherings, or at least having a reason to cook for people other than myself (which I have been doing for far too long). Nothing like spending an hour+ in the kitchen just to sit down and eat alone...
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
My computers/gear/technology (ipod, laptop,etc). They include several of my other things: Movies/TV shows, music, my writing.

And a warm, soft, big-ass blanket/bed. Much better w/another warm body in it.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.

Too much? Well I laid it out in detail and that also frightened away anyone from even replying. Seeing a trend here?
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
At the movies, passed out drunk in front of my neighbors house, trying to run over drug dealers up my street, calling everyone and leaving obscene msgs, hiking very quickly down the mountain, catching up on facebook (I know I know...) playing xbox, brewing some beer, drinking some beer <--- most likely of all) riding my motorcycle somewhere, etc.

I've got literally nothing holding me back from doing anything and everything life has to offer except I'm usually trying to find someone to do it with me. I've spent several years on the path to personal enlightenment and I've decided I'm a teacher of life. You can only teach yourself so much before it's time to share.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I often wonder if there is someone out there who can understand me, and actually take the time to do it.
You should message me if
