My self-summary
Curious. Mischievous. Well-intentioned. Disarming. Will make you shake your head and groan.

Inspired by Jim Henson, Groucho Marx and Alton Brown.

I am clever, a surprisingly good dancer, and you should IM me. (Hey, remember when OKC had you pick three adjectives? Good times.)

I'm in an monogamish relationship with the insanely awesome alamo_basement. If this squicks you out, or if its clearly not what you're looking for, please feel free to tell me so. I get it, it's not for everyone. That said, I am not just looking to get laid. I am looking for a real connection.
What I’m doing with my life
Used to work for record labels, and also doing social media before anyone called it social media. Now I'm done working for the man.

Spend my days combining my many interests as a way to pay for my toys and my book addiction.

When it's nice out, I take my fancy DSLR out and take pictures of whatever happens to catch my eye.

I have a freelance biz aimed at creating online audio and video telling the stories behind how things came to be. Go here if I'm making no sense.
I’m really good at
Recommending music, being curious rather than judgmental, combining flavors to make awesome iced tea, making Muppet references in everyday conversation.

I also make kickass brownies. Fudgy, not cakey.
The first things people usually notice about me
Tall. Pretty eyes. Three arms.

Oh also that I'm not wearing any pants.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books. I'm really into books on how our brains work to create and inform our behavior. Recent favorites include Incognito: The Secret Lives of the Brain, This Is Your Brain On Music, Predictably Irrational. On the fiction side, I'm very much into magical realism such as Douglas Adams, Neil Gaiman, Matt Ruff and such. More on my GoodReads profile, of course.

Movies. As with most other folks here, its too much to list. My all time favorite movie at the moment is Almost Famous. Additionally, I love all things Muppet, Aaron Sorkin (except The Newsroom. Blech.), Joss Whedon and David Mamet.

Music. Well, my collection of almost 2000 individual pieces doesn't give me much room for themes, but I love strong melody and interesting texture. last.fm says my most played artists are Crowded House, Apparat, The Weepies, A Tribe Called Quest and David Bowie. I suppose that's a start. (softlord is my name on there if you're curious for more). If you have bands on your list that I haven't heard, I will listen and I will message you about them. It's pretty rare that it happens, though. :)

Podcasts.Harmontown, Comedy Bang! Bang!, Nerdist.

Shows. The West Wing, 3-2-1 Contact, NewsRadio, Everwood. Those pretty much sum me up. Currently hooked on Parenthood (though this season has gotten pretty ridiculous).

Food. Sushi, Thai food (especially that spicy brown noodle dish, and the cooked mango over sticky rice), Golden Grahams, Godiva Cocoa, homemade baked ziti when the cheese is a little burned so it has a crispy crunchy shell on it, paper-thin slices of prosciutto, chewy oatmeal cookies.
The six things I could never do without
- Curiosity
- Tea (Find me on Steepster.)
- Hugs (I am an awesome hugger.)
- The half-second before a first kiss
- Slow deep breaths
- Wordplay and silliness.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
- How to dissolve the concept of "them" wherever possible.
- Disappointing second albums.
- Overarching themes and why we think they're so important.
- Whether I should change my handle on here, just so people don't keep getting the wrong idea and calling me Master (I mean, get to know me first!)
On a typical Friday night I am
Almost done re-watching Angel.

Playing Cards Against Humanity. Wishing I could be playing Cards Against Humanity.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Sometimes I like to be the little spoon.

See the aforementioned pants thing. What, is three callbacks too many?

I'm pro-queer, but not queer myself.

When I'm browsing OKC, I always click on profiles that are listed as "kinkier" or "hornier" in a quest to find the horniest and kinkiest person on the entire site, just to see what they're like. I'm secretly worried that it might be me.

...well maybe not WORRIED, exactly...
I’m looking for
  • Girls who like guys
  • Ages 24–34
  • Near me
  • For new friends, short-term dating, casual sex
You should message me if
YAY: If you're on a path. If you smile back. If you have a high tolerance for double entendre. If you seek connection. If you're funny. If you like to cook and be cooked for. If you have your shit together enough to know that nobody really has their shit together. If you wanna talk monogamy and non-monogamy, I'm happy to have that conversation. If you're interested in making a new friend-maybe-flirting-partner-maybe-makeout-partner-maybe-more.

BOO: If you put "if I told you, it wouldn't be private" in the "The most private thing I'm willing to admit here." field or complain about the length of the "about me" section.

A clever turn-of-phrase will catch and keep my attention, especially when its delivered by a sharp-tongued geeky mischief-maker. That said, it does on occasion manifest as a predilection for awful puns. I can't help it.

Hey, you. The person reading this. I see you! Get your hands out of there and use them to say hi already!
