My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
About the screen name (because I know it sounds pompous)- I was trying to arrive at a sexy screen name and thought, "sexyscreen, yeah, that's it!"

Alright, I have a tendency to write too much and use a number of collegiate words, which I’m so very pleased with. I guess I don’t want to sound like one of these people that’s “trying too hard,” as they say, but I actually speak using these words; they belong to my lexicon, I’m not reaching for a thesaurus to impress. (Not that there’s anything too terribly wrong with that.) ←---- when being parenthetical, the punctuation goes on the inside of the parentheses if it is a separate sentence. The period would belong on the outside if the parenthetical information were a part of another sentence.

With an effort toward accessibility, I give you ‘at a glance’:

(This is who I am, it doesn't need to be who you are entirely.)

At a glance:

I don't believe I fit into Jung's alphabet thing. I'm a fucking person. In fact, that's kind of how I feel about psychology in general. That's going to sound ignorant to some of you, but others are going to know exactly what I'm on about. I respect psychology, I understand its usefulness, and so on. Too much emphasis on ANYTHING is reductive. Okay.
Nose breather (this also means I don’t snore)
No soda (and things like this)
Avoiding 'sofalarity' (neologism)
Masculine as fuck (don’t think ‘bro’, think Camus)
Fruit (berry smoothies are the best)
Favorite pizza toppings: artichokes, spinach, garlic and basil
Coachella twice (2003 & 2004)
Italy once
Autodidactic (stressing this)
Radical liberal
No “tatts”
No drugs (this has never been a thing [aside from a couple years of enjoying pot pretty regularly])
No kids
Not really super fun all of the time
I speak at the appropriate volume
I’ve been done with videogames and television (with a few exceptions [listed below]) for quite some time. This has thoroughly become who I am; it’s not a choice any longer. It’s 12/24/13 and I just learned about Duck Dynasty roughly a week ago, for example. NB: television consumption isn't a deal breaker.
I read.
At 6’, roughly 185lbs and devoid of a muffin top, I’m physically fit.
I often wear facial hair.

This is why I'm a socialist:


I love going to art museums and galleries. That's actually fun for me, if you can imagine that. I studied Art History, with a minor in English. Prior to that I studied photography at an unaccredited subsidiary of BU. I'm also really mellow about it all. I realize it's esoteric knowledge.

I'm super literate, and I really hope that the smart/ sexy dichotomy will ultimately prove to be a false one. I don’t expect my mate to have it all in spades, but I’m seeking a nice blend of cute, fit and learned.

I make electronic music. No one is cutting me a check for it yet, but music punctuates everything else that I enjoy (more accurately, I should say “things I’m interested in”). It’s a way for me to lighten up, and it’s a way for me to be creative myself.

I see through atheism the same way I see through religion, though I've a serious spiritual bent.

I haven't owned a TV in over 6 years and I don't watch it nearly at all via other means. However, as I suggested earlier, I’m cool with a spot of television if that’s something that you like.

Of less import: I'm fairly certain I'm an anglophile and a francophile. If ethnicity is something you concern yourself with, I feel mine is pretty unique. Just ask.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Just passed a NY Life Insurance exam. Yay. I'm aiming for securities next. If you think you might want this for yourself, hit me up and we can make that happen. I can set you up with my company, enabling you to register for the exam. This should provide some additional income on the side, with potentially limitless growth potential. (Again, hit me up for further details.)

I moved back to Albany around two years ago after spending 5 months in Austin, TX. I returned with the thought of earning a master's in philosophy, but I realized around midterm that I had perhaps had enough formal education. I really liked Austin, but there were maybe a few too many hipsters, and I suffered two rather significant setbacks while there. I really miss the climate of TX. I was laid off from local bar recently and now I'm trying to move on to the next thing.

What I'm working on: getting a real job/ career (I think I know what's a good match for me now [not insurance]), getting insanely fit (I've virtually no gut as it is, but I'd like to be cut) and getting signed (I'm super experimental, and that's part of my sound, but I want to hone in a tad more and throw a demo at these 2-3 labels, which I think may be receptive to my material). I would just like a small cult following.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
You may be thinking “I can read, too. What a joke.” Only people who read truly know what I mean. In other words, literacy admits degrees.

being compassionate, tolerant, etc.
physical things (cooking, sports, and so on).
cerebral things (reading, writing, conceptualizing etc.).

the rest are TOP SECRET
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
is that I've already noticed them.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books: I read quite a bit. Most people who claim to enjoy reading seem like phonies to me. Dostoevsky is one of my favorites, but I haven’t read a lot of his work. I just really love the way he writes and what he writes about. I also think I want to read more science fiction. I primarily read nonfiction. I really feel that books and music are too sacred to list extensively on here. Meet up with me and I’ll natter away about it all. :D

Movies: Food Inc., Examined Life, Inglorious Bastards, Atomized (The Elementary Particles), Upstream Colour, The Happening, Tony Takitani, Fight Club, Black Swan (for the right reasons), Love Liza, Avatar, The Illusionist, The Decalogue, Three Colours, American Psycho, American Beauty, Magnolia, Annie Hall, Bottle Rocket, Moon, The Sheltering Sky, Zeitgeist, Whatever Works, Man on a Wire, The Corporation, Princess Mononoke, Adaptation, Examined Life, Requiem for a Dream, Unbreakable, Deconstructing Harry, Blue Velvet, American Splendor, Food Inc., High Fidelity, 12 Monkeys, Caché, Being John Malcovich, The Wrestler, Cast Away (this may be a bad movie) etc.

Shows: Television sucks. With that said, here's what I sometimes watch: Real Time (Bill Maher), Jeopardy, Curb Your Enthusiasm, Art:21, Californication, CBS Sunday Morning, msnbc (Okay, I've given up on msnbc), House of Cards, The West Wing, and I watched all of Breaking Bad (over the course of about two weeks). Lost was also pretty incredible.

Music: electronic music. I'll give you one name, which you've probably heard of: Boards of Canada. I've already pretty much exhausted pop/ rock (indie, classic etc.). I simply like music. You know what it's like to be ahead of the curve, I'm sure.

Food: whatever. Carbs and calories, I suppose. Pizza may be at the top of the list.
(I cook and enjoy grocery shopping.)

Things I've never liked:

muscle cars
brussel sprouts
guns (or any weapons, really [I'm always at a loss in COD and the like])
dip (tobacco)
country music
energy drinks
fancy trucks
star trek
pro wrestling
scarves (for me)
pop punk
most metal (as a serious genre)
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
My mother and father (they're still together).
Good food (whether that means tasty or wholesome, it doesn't matter).
Companionship (this is why I'm here).
Music and the means to make it.

As far as possessions go, I really love my collection of books and my bike (synths are covered by "the means to make music"). The books keep my mind sharp and are a sort of physical residuum of my accomplishments and understanding of art and the world. The bike keeps my body fit, and subsequently my mind as well.
There are, of course, other things, but those two are the most important, I suppose.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Art, politics, sex, a zillion abstract intellectual concepts and health.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Well, up until recently I was working every Friday.
I guess I'm viewing this field (box) as an opportunity to disclose the following:
I find Albany to be more than a little underwhelming, so I'm pretty reclusive. I'd like to see if I can make Albany work out, but I'm entirely open to relocating in the near future, preferably to someplace more urban… …or rural.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Under all the layers of dry, stoic, well-preened intellectualism, there's a jubilant kid who wants to jump on the bed, make funny faces, and laugh like we're immortal!
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
If you're inclined, just message me. We'll determine our particular level of compatibility one way or another.
Want to take me to an art museum/ gallery? Message me.
Want to buy me edibles? Message me.

I'm not sure it's a good practice, but I'm going to list a few things that I don't think I can deal with (i.e., I'd rather be single):

an out of control BMI (slightly ≤ "normal" would be great, and slightly ≥ "normal" I feel is being pragmatic).
