Sarcastic, tsundere, sanguine, sombre, and semi-nocturnal.
I tend to change hobbies as often as I change my underwear. Mostly
because the breadth of the human experience is fascinating, but
also because there's nothing quite like the feeling of warm
underwear straight out of the dryer.
I've watched the man burn but would not consider myself a burner. I
wear all black but dance like a hippie. Cool under fire, but twitch
when I sleep.
What I’m doing with my life
I research human behavior and design things for a living. I will probably judge you based on how you peel a banana. Nothing personal. It's for a science project.
The first things people usually notice about me
I'm left handed. My tattoos. I have a love/hate relationship with
fashion. I like to think that I dress well, but that's debatable.
My wardrobe ranges from contemporary menswear to post-apocalyptic
goth ninja shit. It's kind of hard to find a middle ground between
these dichotomies so I tend to just go all out in either direction.
I post a bunch of selfies on http://www.instagram.com/andymai
you're into that sort of thing.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
The Fifth Element, 2001: A Space Odyssey, Gattaca, Firefly, Cosmos,
Star Trek, Gattaca, Starship Troopers, Miyazaki. The Large Hadron
Collider turns me on. In my fantasy world, Carl Sagan, Elon Musk,
and Neil deGrasse Tyson are my gay dads. Winter is Coming. I would
probably be a neckbeard if I had the capacity to grow facial
I like to read books that fuck with my brain. Vonnegut never fails
to impress. I just recently finished Jeff Vandermeer's Southern
Reach Trilogy which I want more people to read so we can discuss
theories about what the fuck is going on.
Depeche Mode, David Bowie, Booka Shade, Royksopp, Odesza, Henry
Saiz, Tycho, Disclosure, Die Antwoord, The Faint, Grimes, Simian
Mobile Disco, The Knife, Lo-Fang, Flume, The Weeknd, Moderat,
London Grammar, The Presets, Hot Chip, Chromeo, Lorde, Chvrches,
Tegan & Sara, IAMX, Hipster shit. Goth shit. Experimental shit.
Occasionally trap shit.
The six things I could never do without
The internet. I'm outdoorsy in that I like to get
intoxicated in scenic places, but if I'm away from the Internet too
long, I'll start fading away as if my parents never hooked up when
they were 21.
Shoes. Some people talk with their hands; I talk
with my feet.
Pepcid AC. I got my DNA profiled and it told me I
have an alcohol flush reaction. Pep helps me look like a normal
human being during social situations which is already hard enough
as it is.
Staying up late. Wearing all black.
Sleeping in. Brunch is served at 2PM.
