My self-summary
I'm one of those obnoxious people who often asks "well, why not?" I like beer and thought "this can't bee too hard" so now sometimes I make beer. I have always wanted to learn to play piano, so at 27 I asked "why not now?" so I take lessons. Wanted to be an astronaut or a pilot for a while, so I flew model rockets and tool around with a quadcopter. Why not?

I love words, music, films, and television. It helps that I do that creative-type stuff for a living! I can also play any single piano piece in existence, as long it's specifically the first movement of Moonlight Sonata, a couple Chopin preludes, and none of the others.

If I could meet 5 dead people they'd be (in no particular order): Sagan, Lincoln, MLK, Hendrix and Cordwainer Smith. Each of them has influenced my life and opinions in such a way that I wouldn't be the same person without them.

I'd like to go back in time and visit medieval England, but an alternative version of England that has no completely awful plague that wiped out a third of the planet. Oooor the racism. You know what, maybe I'll just go to Medieval Times instead...

I like being a cornucopia of random knowledge and facts. I like trivia games. I can usually beat my friends at Trivial Pursuit, but I think that's more because they're bad at it than I'm any good. We'll keep that last part just between us, however. :)
What I’m doing with my life
I have an overwhelming passion for books, writing, and the process of taking a bunch of unrelated pictures and making a cohesive story - otherwise known as video editing. I work in post-production for reality TV. Additionally, I'm working on an independent feature and do some writing for a video game on the side.

I've always been rather decisive: I know what I want, I work hard to get it. Unless it's what restaurant to go to for lunch. THAT'S TOO TOUGH.
I’m really good at
I am pretty good at getting along with most anybody. I am a good cook, a good reader and a good conversationalist. I have a moderate vocabulary and etymology fascinates me to no end. I was told recently by a friend that I'm "really good at making my friends feel intelligent and capable!" which I thought was a nice thing to say.

Boring life stuff. I have my shit together. My friends usually come to me for advice about insurance, banking etc. That is super boring, and now I'm maybe thinking passively racist? Hey, let's get the Jew to do our financial planning! Apparently my friends are racist bastards.
The first things people usually notice about me
My impossibly laconic wit.

My favorite accent is of the Scottish variety. I listen to George Galloway on YouTube when I'm bored. Mostly just for his accent.
The six things I could never do without
Freedom, Books, Music, Humor, Internet, and Tropes
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Why my cats will come over to me after I've fed them expecting more food, acting all surprised when I don't feed them again. You get the same amount of food every day, cats, it's not that hard. Is this about that time my roommate fed you twice as much? That was one time, and it was like two years ago, get over it!
On a typical Friday night I am
Going nuts taking drugs drinking boozing and partying until I fall down. And by those things I mean playing a board game and watching Game of Thrones.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I am well aware of the correct pronunciation of "biopic" I just refuse to use it, it is stupid.

That goes for ".gif" as well; "Jiff" can suck it.
You should message me if
If you've ever read Jack Vance, Cordwainer Smith, or Ursula LeGuin.

No seriously if you read Vance, just message me so we can dork out. We'll have more ringlets than we know what to do with.

If you're a girl who has a medium-to-large-sized dog who would like to let me play with said dog.

You would like to discuss the merits and drawbacks of a free-market pseudocapitalist system as compared to the antonymous system of socialism controlled by a single governing body. Oooooor you want to just talk about how delicious bagels are. Because bagels -- for real.
