My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I've always found it interesting that as I get older, the things that never used to be directed towards me suddenly start looking very familiar. I am, of course, talking about my life and how it pertains to the characters on Seinfeld. That show came out when I was 11! Does that make you feel old, or what? So, quick question. Who's your favorite character? Mine's George. Here's why, and bear with me.

You know how old George is in season 1 of Seinfeld? 31!! How is this possible? What's ever stranger is that I find myself looking at someone like George now, at 34, three years beyond 31, and saying, "wow...I've grown up into George Costanza."

But it dawned on me that there's a reason for this, and there's a reason why probably no one but the odd few would say that they take after Jerry or Kramer in real life. And thus, why Costanza is my favorite character.

Who is Jerry? For the sake of simplification, Jerry is probably what Freud would describe as the division of the human psyche known as the Super-Ego. He's fastitious, orderly, has a dream job that affords him a great Manhattan apartment and scores of beautiful women, and attains all this despite having the fashion sense of a blind Bill Cosby. He's the most "grounded" character in the series, and casually avoids most of the real-life pratfalls that his co-stars seem to have to endure on a weekly basis, offering only witty observations and musings , seemingly about nothing, but that's exactly what makes him so unrealistic. It's so nice when it happens good. That's Jerry in a nutshell. New gig and girlfriend every week.

Now what about the K. Man, Cosmo Kramer? Anyone who's ever taken intro to Psych can tell you where he falls. Let's see, no real job, yet falls backwards into money. He does whatever he wants, be it asking out the naked woman in the apartment across the street, or smuggling in some real Cubans to make great cigars, he is our Id. He's just about everything that is not Jerry. He's a loathsome, offensive brute, and we cannot look away, and this of course makes him a funny character, but realistic in real life? Nope.

But George. Ah, George. The everyman. The Ego. There's a little bit of George in all of us. He has ups and he has downs. He's got a job one week, but the next is out because he slept with the cleaning woman. He cuts corners, tries to take advantage of the system, but it never really works out for George in his grand schemes. He's always pulled back to reality by, well, reality. Which, if you wiki this whole Freud thing like I did ;-) , you'll see that the Ego is what happens when the Id meets reality. Look at it this way: who hasn't wanted to hide under their desk to take a nap at work? Or take a pastrami sandwich into bed with you? If Kramer tried those things, they'd work. But not with George. Jason Alexander was the only cast member not awarded an emmy for his character, despite being the funniest and most realistic character on the show. Perhaps the voters saw too much of themselves in him and shied away.

George is there to remind us that life sometimes sucks Sometimes you get dumped, even though it's not you, it's them. Sometimes your boss throws your clothes into the ocean, or you get handcuffed to a bed and robbed, or try to make yourself sound like you have a great job working for Vandalay Industries as an import/exporter even though you're really just scamming the unemployment system. We've all been there. George is such a great character because he knows where he stands in life, and embraces that fact. Sure, he freaks out and is going bald (I'm not, thankfully) and has crazy parents that in the end he still clearly loves. But he doesn't let it get him down. He goes at it, week after week, trying to do his best in this world that keeps doing its best to keep him down.
I know Elaine falls into this discussion somewhere, but honestly, I clearly slacked and didn't look into this fully.

Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Taschen books. Medieval Japanese history books. Cyberpunk books. Poetry books. Text books. Music books. Murakami books. (Both of them.) How-to-books. History books.

A quick look at my DVD selection will tell you two things: I like science fiction movies, and I like 80s movies. Those two things say a lot about my aesthetic and, to some degree, my personality. Though I guarantee I'm not what you think.

Romantic-Era classical music. The violin motif from Schehererazade. Wave by Oscar Peterson. The Thieving Magpie. Anything that was ever sung by a character, or used in as source music for a Looney Tunes or Ren and Stimpy Cartoon.
Led Zeppelin and Pink Floyd. Talking Heads. Tangerine Dream and 70s-80s electronic bands and their awesome soundtracks for awesome 80s movies.

I like intelligent comedies. AD, Simpsons seasons 3.5 through 9, South Park, old Nickelodeon shows like Ren and Stimpy and Adventures of Pete and Pete and who could forget Salute your Shorts! Hannibal. Season 1 of Dexter. Futurama. I love history shows and am getting pretty damn good at correctly estimating the value of goods on Pawn Stars and Antiques Roadshow.

Food is wonderful.

Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
How did I get to be 34 already? I still feel 25. Fortunately, I feel a lot smarter than I did at 25. That's the one perk of aging I look forward to the most I suppose. That and incontinence!

How much would I need to comfortably live on a beach in Thailand while leading SCUBA expeditions in my free time for ten years?

How standards are too high.

Why do some ladies on her only include pictures of themselves standing at a distance with a group of friends? Sorry, but I don't want to have to play detective to figure out which one you are. Take a picture of yourself. It's not hard.

Also, when did cargo shorts become so passe? I mean, I get cargo pants, because: cargo pants. But if I'm a grown man wearing shorts to begin with, why the hell can't I have some extra pockets to hold stuff like water bottles or glasses cases? They're shorts. The definition of casual. You all get cavernous purses capable of hiding small animals, yet I'm stuck with four small pockets and a wallet? I have things too, damn it!
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Working, bowling, making something, watching a movie, reading, hanging out with people, out on a date, buying something at Home Depot, Judo practice, watching the dogs for my parents while they seemingly have a more active social life than I do...
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I like dogs more than people.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
If you feel so inclined, of course. Or, if I wrote to you first. If I did it's because I read all of your profile, saw some key things we had in common, looked through your pictures to make sure you weren't too wild ;) , read through a sampling of your questions, and then felt interested to contact you and learn more about you. I even typically ask questions and provide humorous observations pertaining to the information available to me at hand in my message, and 99% free of typos and grammatical errors! (From the look of things around here there are major issues with proper use of Their/There/They're with my gender. )

Or don't. Whatever. It's your buck, not mine.
