I love discussing politics, but I'm not political. I love discussing religion, but I'm not religious.
I need to travel (surprise surprise), and get very antsy if too much time goes by without going somewhere. Though, I also love time around the house, and go crazy if too much time goes by without wasting a weekend at home.
I'm fascinated by people and their differences. I love meeting people with varying views on life & the world, it teaches me so much.
Music: Overall, I love bluesy rock. Jack White is something like my music hero. But my favorites are kind of all over the place... Pearl Jam, Radiohead, Kanye West, The Roots, DMB, Guns N Roses (old GNR that is), The New Pornographers, Jay-Z, The Black Keys, Muse, Led Zeppelin, TV on the Radio, Fiona Apple, Neko Case, The National...
Movies: I tend to like things that are at least a little bit depressing, and get pulled really hard toward that which is relentlessly depressing (think: Requiem for a Dream). But as long as it has a brain and/or heart at all, it can work for me. I have no time for most popcorn fare (think: anything Michael Bay). Memento, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, Pulp Fiction, Finding Nemo, Young Frakenstein...
TV: Current favorites are Game of Thrones, Mad Men, Daily Show, Doctor Who, Boardwalk Empire, Homeland. All time favorite, never to be trumped, is The Wire.

You love music too, and want to discuss it over a drink.
Or we're nothing alike at all, and you want to tell me how wrong I am. Really if you see anything at all interesting, I'm fun to talk to, promise :)
