My self-summary
What's up with all the selfie pics behind the wheel posted on here? Everyone's got one. It's making me nervous to drive. Seriously, safety first ladies.

Here's an easy one: looking for someone who is a living embodiment of the word 'awesome'. Simple enough, right?

Things I dig:

Music. The closest thing to a religious experience I've ever had is at concerts. I live for seeing my favorite bands live, but can talked into seeing just about anything. Music nerds, apply here.

Traveling. Not that "I went to Wisconsin Dells" traveling. I mean like "let's find a waterfall in Thailand and jump off it" traveling. If you have any idea how to get paid doing stuff like that, please contact me ASAP. Let's go. Anywhere.

Getting your ass outside . Biking, running, snowboarding, camping, hiking, volleyball, laying on a beach, or drinking on a patio. Any of it beats sitting on a couch.

I joke around and speak sarcasm like a second language. Its a way to find humor in the absurdity in life. If you're not on that same wave you'll probably want to slap me at some point. And I'd respect you for that.

Trying new things. Period.

That's just scratching the surface. Get a hold of me to find out the rest of the story.

I recently had a girl tell me that I seem normal, so what am I doing on this site (which begs the question just what kind of messages has she been receiving)? I replied that while dating isn't an issue for me, I want to cast a wide net to find someone I'm truly compatible with. Hopefully you see it the same way.
What I’m doing with my life
A wise man once said "If you ain't livin', you're dyin'".
I’m really good at
Understanding that humility is a virtue, you braggart.

Also, shouting the wrong answer to a Jeopardy question at the TV.
The first things people usually notice about me
Good question. How well I can karaoke "Humpty Dance" without looking at the lyrics?
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books - Matt Taibbi, Hunter Thompson, Noam Chomsky, Neil Strauss, decadent music bios, tons of non-fiction and social criticism, does the internet count as a never-ending book?

Movies - Fight Club, The Departed, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, Adaptation, Seven, American Beauty, Donnie Darko, Anchorman, Exit Through The Gift Shop, End of the Century, Decline of Western Civilization Pts 1 - 3

TV - The Wire (aka the greatest television show ever, and no, that is not an exaggeration), Arrested Development, Its Always Sunny, Game of Thrones, Frontline, 30 Rock, Democracy Now, Breaking Bad (aka the second greatest show ever), Baskets. TV in general: meh

Music - Dropkick Murphys, The Vandals, Eyedea and Abilities, Pennywise, Rancid, Alkaline Trio, Off With Their Heads, Direct Hit!, Slightly Stoopid, Queens of the Stone Age, NIN, Atmosphere, LCD Soundsystem, early 90's hip hop, whatever those Hip Hop Guys are spinning, and whoever is playing Riotfest this year.

Food - Spam. Nothing but spam.
The six things I could never do without
1. Family/friends (I thought this was too obvious to mention, but I have been informed otherwise. See, I'm all about constructive feedback)
2. laptop
3. DVR - I can't stand having to watch commercials
4. my Les Paul
5. Vacation days.
6. Passport
I spend a lot of time thinking about
...how people still vote for politicians who think climate change is a hoax and that all muslims are terrorists.
...how so many people who practice a religion that dictates you to care for the poor instead denigrate them
...how the greed of capitalism will eventually kill us all
...how cute puppies are (you didn't think I was gonna end on a downer note, did you?)
On a typical Friday night I am
...doing something different than the last Friday. If I had a routine for every Friday night it wouldn't be very exciting now would it?
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
That I really half-ass it when it comes to filling out online profiles, but you probably already figured that one out.
You should message me if
...you've got a hot-nerd thing going on, Grace Helbig style
...you make people laugh so hard their drink comes out their nose
...having an intellectual debate turns you on
...you give zero fucks
If that's you, hit the Message button. Now. Like, right now.

You should probably not message me if
...you think Donald Trump has "some interesting ideas"
...you think books are only for propping doors open
...you think Drake has talent. Cause he doesn't.
