I'm big into music - constantly checking the internet for the latest mashups and indie rock releases, though I'm totally omnivorous and will listen to just about anything (insanely catchy pop! black metal! underground rap! bring it on!). Let me know if you wanna meet and swap mixtapes! It's my only marketable skill.
Movies are for watching, not for making out during (that can wait til later.) I believe than anything worth seeing is probably worth seeing on the big screen. Help me find the best indie cinemas in the Bay area and I'll probably love you forever.
I run marathons on the side (keeps me in shape, I suppose). Last spring I ran the Cleveland Marathon with my dad, we dressed as Batman and Robin. Best idea ever, you wouldn't believe the crowd support you get when wearing a cape.
Current beard status: Watson from the Sherlock Holmes movies doing No-Shave November.
I am up for adventures and seeking the same.
Movies: During Oscar season I spend more on movies per month than food. Most recently, Ran (by Kurosawa), Double Indemnity, Blade Runner, Winter's Bone, Grizzly Man (because Herzog is so great), Jurassic Park, Adaptation, Being John Malkovich, Pulp Fiction, Aladdin, Zoolander.
Music: I'm really big into mashups. Also, Soul Coughing, early White Stripes, the Weeknd, the Decemberists, Klaxons, Fleet Foxes, Kanye West (don't hate, he's awesome), Spoon, Portishead, the xx, Clipse, Daft Punk, Das Racist, and whatever the hell is at the top of Hype Machine at the moment.
Food: I was born and raised in Greece, so Mediterranean food has a spot in my heart, but I will eat just about anything. Which will probably be my downfall one day.
2. Macaroni and cheese
3. Meeting new folks
4. That tingling feeling you get in your neck when you hear your new favorite song
5. Singing (oh man my shower singing wakes the whole house)
6. Mexican standoffs?
Also, fake band names! I have a huge list. (My real band's name is Rat Trap. We have three albums and a Christmas special planned.)
I'm the nice guy your mother warned you about.
