My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I am a twentysomething who is amazingly enough gainfully employed and somehow hasn't lost his soul to the grind. I work so that I may live, I don't live to work. I believe that a good time, and plenty of hobbies, are the way to stay young forever. Who wants to grow old when there's so much out there? Adventure, sights, sounds, knowledge. Life is for the taking, and I will have it.

Then I will conquer this planet and present it as a gift to my robot, or non-robot, bride.

I am, or at least think I am, intelligent, witty, motivated towards important things, able to feed and dress myself, capable of opening jars, reaching semi-high places and cage fighting bears.

My sense of humor tends to be absurdist, and if I don't have a snappy comeback, then there is something wrong with me. My idea of a fine summer day is to take some sun tea (with a splash or three of bourbon) to the porch, smoke a good cigar, and read a book. I buy more books than I do DVDs or video games. I read anything, from non-fiction, to fiction, to philosophy.

i also like to drink cheap beer, smoke cigarettes and play disc golf.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I work Monday through Friday. After work, it depends. Some days, I hang out with my friends. Others I sit in front of this idiot box. I read, I listen to music, I talk to people.

So, really, the appropriate answer is 'Nothing of substance.' Even so, I'm a productive member of society with a full time job. I pay my taxes, I can even cook. I'm a real adu---Video games.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Being awesome. And singing.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
That I am big and scary. Or that with a horned helmet and an axe, I'd look like a dwarf. Only taller.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books: I will read anything I get my hands on. Fiction to nonfiction, short stories and essays to epic sagas of struggle. I've been reading a lot of cosmology books lately, debating the truth or falsehood of the Big Bang Theory. Really, really interesting stuff.

Movies: I like action flicks and absurd comedies with a smattering of horror in there. My favorite movie that I can never pass up if it's on TV is Die Hard. Bruce Willis is my hero. I also really dug the LotR movies, Star Wars is essential, and I really liked The Devil's Advocate. I'll watch almost anything once.

Music: My favorite band of all time is Nine Inch Nails. I found them in my teen rage period, and Mister Reznor has grown with me to Grown Up Fury. I like a lot of heavy stuff, Rammstein, In Flames. I like electronic music too, like VNV Nation and Assemblage 23. I've gotten into the Smashing Pumpkins a lot lately, too. Honestly, as long as it's not new country music, i'll probably like it. From concertos and operas to hip-hop and indie rock. There's very little that doesn't please my ear.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
I hate this question, because it makes me choose. My friends are on this, as is my dog. He's my buddy. Assuming my survival needs are met, this leaves frivolous things. Like music, and entertainment and BOOKS. I'd kill people without books. The last thing, probably, would be this idiot box called a PC. It's a link to the outside world!
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
The sorry state of the world and how my army of killer robots could make it right, only to have a creation of my nemesis stop them one by one and take their weapons. Then he'd come after me, but I'd escape for the sequel.

Otherwise, I get infuriated at politicians, irritated at celebrities, and disgusted by the actions of my fellow human beings for the most part.

Otherwise, I'm trying to exorcise the damn songs that get stuck in my head. I mean, seriously, when you have the Electric Six's "Gay Bar" lodged in your head for THREE DAYS, you have a problem.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Usually, I'm out wrecking up the place. If not, I'm sitting at home, selling my soul to the internet.

My soul's pretty cheap, though. Ask for special black magic rates!

I still have a schoolboy crush on Alanis Morissette
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
I think part of my problem is that I don't know exactly what I'm looking for. A woman who will laugh at my jokes, not through obligation but because they are funny dammit, who is not afraid to tell me I'm being a complete tool, who is well educated and well read. Someone who can come on zany adventures about town or across the country. Someone who will put up with my shit as I put up with theirs.

No one is perfect. No one is perfect for someone else. I'm just looking for someone who can get me.

I have discovered that the built in IMs suck a lot. I am on AIM all the time. Hit me there. MaximumPontifex
