My name’s Matt, I’m a 31 year old software developer. If you're the
type to stay in, I can cook a meal and relax and watch movies or
anime. If you're the more outdoor type, I know good places in the
area for walks in the woods, or relaxing bike rides.
I’m rather good at making breads and candies, when the mood strikes
me. My peanut brittle and buckeyes tend to be in high demand when I
make them, and I can make my own pizza crust. And one of these days
I’ll learn how to make taffy that doesn’t result in butterscotch.
What I’m doing with my life
Programming, maybe. If I can ever concentrate on one project
enough, I might find one I can make money from. Also, I'm trying to
learn japanese via osmosis. It's somewhat successful
I’m really good at
Programming, being a geek, making horrible puns, recognizing voice
actors. Taking things apart and getting them back together
Using oddly chosen and large words at random times.
The first things people usually notice about me
My hair it seems. Wavy and strawberry blonde. I've been growing it
out lately, instead of my normal buzz
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I’m a voracious reader, and getting a Nook has helped with that.
I’ve pretty much read everything Asimov and Heinlein ever wrote. I
also have an interest in rather technical books about cosmology and
physics. I’m also a fan of translated light novels, mainly the
Suzumiya Haruhi series, and Toradora!.
Movies tend to be either goofy comedy or sci-fi. I’m building up
quite an extensive collection of Blu-Ray discs, and at some point I
might watch some of them. Not counting the various movies that
Mystery Science Theater has riffed, the movies I’ve watched most
recently have been Austin Powers, Spaceballs (The Blu-ray! The kids
love it.) and American Beauty.
I’m somewhat ashamed to admit I’ve been listening to a lot of
Gangham Style recently, although chiptunes and j-pop are heavily in
my playlist too. Though Approaching Nirvana and Eve 6 have been
making a push into my playlist lately.
The six things I could never do without
And four other things.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Right now, which of the 11 hard drives around me is making a
On a typical Friday night I am
Programming, playing games, or watching some form of entertainment.
Or sometimes just plopped in bed with my kindle.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I actually enjoy cooking and the outdoors too. I also spend a
surprising amount of time discussing orbital mechanics with my
You should message me if
If you don't mind a geeky guy that can also hold a conversation. Or
if you want to help me get through my backlog of movies, or try my
cooking. Recommending some good science fiction authors who aren't
dead is a plus, too.
