My self-summary
I'm Jason. Named for the months July through November, and am as clever as the inspiration for my name... Which is to say, not very. :P I enjoy bears, puns, bear puns, and getting really excited about things that don't warrant quite that much excitement.

Beyond that, I tend to take things easy. Incredibly so. No drama. I have a bad case of Resting Grump Face, but the general rule of thumb is that if I say nothing bad, I'm thinking nothing bad.

The sun is my nemesis. Light in general, really. If you have seen me, I have done something terribly, horribly wrong. I am... Techie. Or a ninja, you know, I'm not picky.
What I’m doing with my life
Working at Guitar Center and various theaters and venues around San Diego. Thinking about the Star Wars Tabletop RPGs I DM. Nerdy stuff.
I’m really good at
If I had to pick three things, it would be computers in general, the technical side of music, and video games. Lots of video games. So many video games. I need to find people to play multiplayer games with, because I'm running out of single player games that exist. In the world.
The first things people usually notice about me
My serious-face. My entire family has a bad case of serious-face. I swear I'm enjoying myself, even if you don't think I am.

I crack jokes. Lots of jokes. Sarcasm, off the cuff remarks, puns, tongue in cheek comments, you name it. I try to stay away from the offensive stuff, but I can honestly say that sometimes I don't see the Line of Tact, trip over it, and sail headlong into I'm Going To Hell For Laughing At This land. And I don't regret it in the least.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Oh God, here we go.

Books: the Star Wars Expanded Universe. I was sad when Disney cut them from the canon, because now I have trouble remembering which fake stuff is the right fake stuff. Also, the King Arthur and Sir Apropos trilogies, both by Peter David, as well as the Song of Ice and Fire series by GRRM. The Eisenhorn Trilogy, set in Warhammer 40K, is another really good trilogy. Has anyone noticed the best things usually come in trilogies? Like the Lord of the Rings trilogy, how did I almost forget that one?

TV Shows: Community. Game of Thrones, to a lesser extent than I like the books... The actors are great, though. Doctor Who, though I lost a lot of interest after Ten left. Nine and Ten were, ahem, "Fantastic!" I can't think of anything else, off-hand. I don't want much TV, I prefer Doin Thangs(tm).

Music: I'll spare you a novel and just go with the bands I have on my phone. All That Remains, Amaranthe, Avenged Sevenfold, Breaking Benjamin, Bullet for My Valentine, Dark Tranquility, Darkest Hour, Delain, Fireflight, Five Finger Death Punch, Hurt, In This Moment, Machinae Supremacy, Masterplan, The Material, My Darkest Days, Persuader, The Red Ribbon Army, Scar Symmetry, Shinedown, Sirenia, Slipknot, Stone Sour, Three Days Grace, Thrice, Within Temptation.
The six things I could never do without
Sarcasm.
Bears.
Music. Preferably metal, more symphonic these days.
Communication. Like, not so much 5 hour phone calls, more like "hey I noticed this thing and I don't like it lets talk about it and fix it alright cool now everyone's happy and punctuation is for suckers."
Good stories, be it books shows, movies, anecdotes told by people, etc.
Anxiety crises, it seems like. I mean, man, just going through my normal day when WHAM OH ARE WE FEELING THINGS TODAY I GUESS THAT'S WHAT WE'RE DOING, DIDN'T WE DO THIS ALREADY ONCE THIS WEEK OH WELL.

(Note: I would have listed friends, but those are people, not things, and that's just disrespectful.)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How I've listened to my music so much that I'm starting to get bored of all of it, and that's a travesty.
Also, my Star Wars RPG. Not afraid to admit it.
On a typical Friday night I am
Probably playing video games of some kind, if I'm not running lights or audio at some theater or concert. Or I could be, you know, KICKING ASS FOR JUSTICE, but probably video games.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Uh, pfft. It's been like 3 years since I last had sex, I guess? I dunno, I don't really keep much about myself private, it's more like other people just never ask.
You should message me if
You like Star Wars, video games, music, whatever.

Do women even message men to start with on these things? I mean, they should. Break the norm. Fight the patriarchy. Or something. I dunno, I'm not a doctor.
