My self-summary
http://vocaroo.com/i/s1Z26WdnBqJl
This is what I sound like.

I'm Jacob. I'm a hippie-dippie, barefoot runnin, trail thumpin bum.

I want to marvel at the world and pursue my passions of song, poetry and history. I want to teach people stories, unify the battered and lost in song and make this a merrier world.

I like good conversation, loud music, thunderstorms, gentle rain, quiet dawns, driving slow, hats, good books, museums, old tattered things, peace, hyperbole, allusions, the outdoors and cultural literacy. I like bitter beer, tea sweet and whiskey smooth.

My heroes are Pete Seeger, Sean "Day9" Plott and Jim Henson.

Bert from Mary Poppins is my spirit animal.

I am a goofy motherfucker.
What I’m doing with my life
I work at a nonprofit outdoor school for disadvantaged children as a teacher - naturalist. I'm endeavoring to join the noble ranks of the perpetually broke and earn a degree in history.

I'm trying to become the darnest folk singer I can possibly be.

I've really focused on my health in the last year. I've lost forty lbs and have another 40 to go. I hit the gym 3-5 times a week and go to yoga errey sunday. I don't need a fitness pal, but if you're interested, lemme know.
I’m really good at
I'm good at croonin' a low-down tune, speaking to crowds, campfires, rambling and baking chocolate chip cookies.
The first things people usually notice about me
My long hair and my bright eyes.

My best friend says I laugh like a cartoon villain. She isn't wrong.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Cut this down ninety times. There's so much more.

Books: The Time Machine, Animal Farm, 1984, The Captains and The Kings, Abarat, A Tale of Two Cities, Cyrano de Bergerac, The Wheel of Time, Young Wizards.

Poets: Keats, Hughes, and Kipling.

These three are what I consider quintessentially romantic, American, and masculine respectively.

Movies: Casablanca, Goodnight & Goodluck, The Red Violin, Perfume: Story of a Killer, The Secret of NIMH, Dr. Strangelove, The Dark Crystal, Six String Samurai, The Labyrinth, Moonrise Kingdom. Every muppet movie in existence. BFG. The Neverending Story.

Music: Pete Seeger, The Beatles, Andrew Jackson Jihad, Highwaymen, Al Jolson, Caravan Palace. If you don't like Queen we can't be friends.

Telly: Big on cartoons and travel shows. The Muppets are a big deal.
The six things I could never do without
My senses, my honest heart, a song in my throat, my banjo and my bare feet.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
The measure of a man. Is David Bowie truly a perfect standard?

How to be queer and win hearts and minds. The revolution as daily practice. How to turn down and make out.
On a typical Friday night I am
Playing music on the banjo, singing loudly, drinking with friends, possibly playing Catan or out a-rambling.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I used to think Gene Wilder died tragically young, struck down and stolen from the world and the silver screen until I saw an interview with him on Reddit. I don't even understand.
You should message me if
I'm just a guy going about this waking dream, looking for friends along the way.

We can be friends and make out if you'd feel so fit.
