My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
New Jersey native with roots in the Deep South and heart in the Upper Midwest. No Scarlett O'Hara or "Fargo" accent, but I love barbecue, magnolia trees, snow, bratwurst, and public radio.

I share an apartment in Crown Heights with two Northern Californians. This means that the dreaded "hella" has crept into my vocabulary. Please make it stop.

Almost my entire adult life has been spent in the Upper Midwest--first Chicago (for undergrad), then Minneapolis (for law school), and it's definitely a part of the country with a special place in my heart. I still miss Minneapolis like crazy, especially its comfortable summers, snowy (not soggy) winters, amazing local music and theater scenes, and open-minded, friendly, unpretentious, fun-loving, progressive people.

I love to travel, even just a short trip to get me out of NYC for a few days. I'm totally open to meeting people beyond the metro area, and if you're in Philadelphia, Northampton, New Haven, Providence, Boston, Baltimore, Albany, DC, or anywhere a BoltBus or Amtrak ride away, I'd love to hear from you!

I'm somewhat miffed at OKC for having only three options with which to describe my sexuality. Consider me "unlabeled," although "bi" describes me better than either of the other two options available. I've found myself mostly attracted to women, transmen, and genderfluid/genderqueer folks, but I generally see attraction as evolving or fluctuating. I practice ethical non-monogamy (some people prefer the term polyamorous), as do many of my friends.

Pronouns: he/him

ENTP, GGG.

I'm an atheist, although I was raised Jewish and still consider myself culturally Jewish.

Politically, I lean pretty far to the left. I consider myself an antiracist feminist, and I would happily call myself a socialist if that weren't such a dirty word in the US. I use words like "cissexist", "kyriarchy", and "problematic" in everyday conversation. I love a good argument, but I'm not interested in dating libertarians or Republicans; our basic values would just be too fundamentally different for an intimate relationship to work.

I smoke the occasional bowl; I don't mind if you don't, but it would be thoroughly awesome if you did.

Because I miss the little "three words" thing at the top of my profile: I am open-minded, inquisitive, and surreal
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
After passing the bar and surviving a year-long, multi-city job search, I am finally lawyer-ing for real. Well, kind of; I'm a document reviewer, which means I read, summarize, and sort through the vast quantities of documents that get produced in large-scale litigation. Sometimes it's interesting, sometimes it's deadly dull, but usually it's a pretty low-stress gig where I can just zone out and listen to ambient music or reruns of "Car Talk." In the long term, I'm chasing the sweet work-life balance and great benefits of federal employment... or learning Java and Ruby on Rails and jumping ship to a Web-development job. Whichever comes first.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Mario Kart, exploring cities, road-tripping, making shit up, sleeping, dancing, cuddling, crossword puzzles, l'esprit de l'escalier, discovering streaming radio stations from New Zealand and reading long-form journalism on my smartphone instead of working, missing the B44 bus by mere seconds, thinking up awesome hiking and biking and neighborhood-exploring adventures, being particularly opinionated about most things, making poutine (does anyone want to help me start a food truck?), giving directions.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
People always seem to be impressed by my super-thick hair. Also, I may have grown up in New Jersey, but I don't sound like it. My dad grew up in Brooklyn, my mom in Memphis (they met at the University of Arizona, and had me while they were living in Detroit. I am an American geographical mutt), but somehow I ended up with a Midwestern accent that becomes more Southern as I consume more beer.

Oh, and I kinda look like Seth Rogen. At least that's what a lot of people have told me.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I realize that my lists are woefully short on women/POC creators. I'm working on this, but feel free to suggest your favorites!

Books: anything by Michael Moore, Bill Bryson or George Carlin, A Confederacy of Dunces, Brave New World, American Psycho, A People's History of the United States, The Disaster Artist.

Movies: Monty Python and the Holy Grail, The Big Lebowski, Rain Man, History of the World Part 1, Koyaanisqatsi, THE ROOM. That last one is super-important; I met Tommy Wiseau and Greg Sestero when they came to Minneapolis in 2009, and then again when they came to New York last year (and probably again when they come back to New York in April).

Music: M.I.A., Santigold, Grimes, Interpol, The Cribs, Spoon, Hot Chip, Grizzly Bear, LCD Soundsystem, Joy Division, Passion Pit, Lykke Li, The Hold Steady, Vampire Weekend, Girl Talk, Sleigh Bells, Animal Collective, Washed Out, Toro y Moi, Wild Flag, Sleater-Kinney, Dan Deacon, The Weeknd, Atmosphere, Titus Andronicus, Purity Ring, Bloc Party, Boards of Canada. Living in Minnesota has also given me a newfound appreciation for Prince, to the point where I loudly sing along to "Let's Go Crazy" or "Purple Rain" every time I hear those songs on the radio. After spending an awesome evening discovering Boards of Canada, I've been trying to find more music that has the trippy, analogue-synth type of sound associated with public information films and children's television shows from the late 60s to early 80s. So far, I've loved Advisory Circle and The Focus Group, but I need more suggestions.

"All My Friends" and "Dance Yrself Clean" by LCD Soundsystem are my two "STOP EVERYTHING AND SHUT UP AND JUST LISTEN AND APPRECIATE HOW AWESOME THIS IS" songs.

I recently got bit by the shape-note singing bug. I get together with a bunch of folks to sing somewhere in the city at least once a week, and it's always a good time. It's an early American folk music tradition that is completely participatory (no audiences), easy to pick up (but there's always more to learn), and delightfully nerdy. If you're not familiar with it (or if you are!), you should totally join me for a singing sometime.

Food: I'm an adventurous eater (might have to draw the line at surströmming or hàkarl, though!), with tastes that lean towards umami, salty, and savory rather than sweet. If I had to narrow my favorites down, I'd say I like anything Vietnamese or Chinese, Chicago-style hot dogs, moules frites, Neapolitan pizza, Hawaiian plate lunch, quality burgers, chicken-fried steak, kimchi, kalbi, shoyu ramen, Waffle House (living in WH territory totally didn't diminish my love for it), Memphis and KC barbecue, and fresh berries.

Drink: My favorite cheap beer is Grain Belt Premium, the local lager of Minneapolis; I can't get it in New York, but I'm happy to drink Yuengling here in town. Otherwise, it's Spaten, Paulaner or pretty much anything German, Aecht Schlenkerla Rauchbier, Session Lager and Dark, New Glarus Spotted Cow, Boddingtons or any English pub ale served on tap or from one of those neato Smoothflow cans, malbec, California cabernets, Oregon pinot noir, French limonade, unsweet tea.

Shows: My Roku box is my best friend, which means I've finally cut the cord and stopped giving Cablevision what seems like half my paycheck every month. My all-time favorites are Tim and Eric Awesome Show, Great Job!, Tom Goes to the Mayor, classic Simpsons, Seinfeld reruns, Futurama, Look Around You, Peep Show, and That Mitchell and Webb Look. My semi-guilty pleasures are The Price is Right and Big Brother. I don't usually have the attention span for hour-long dramas, but Breaking Bad blew my mind and I absolutely adore Mad Men. I'm finally caught up on Game of Thrones--and I give my friends lots of credit for not spoiling it too badly for me these last few months!

Places: Brussels, London, the Ligurian-Tuscan coast, Berlin, Montreal, Vancouver, Washington DC, Asheville (my new crush), Mammoth Cave, Chicago, Madison WI, Minneapolis, Portland OR, far northern California, Tucson, the Grand Canyon, Los Angeles (yes, really... ask me why), any shape-note convention. Based on what I know, if I visited Melbourne, Stockholm, Buenos Aires, or New Zealand, I'd probably fall in love with those places too.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Good beer, good food, an Internet connection, my friends, comfortable pillows, decent public transportation.

#7 (it's not a tangible "thing," so it doesn't count--my profile, my rules): a willingness to critique, discuss, and debate. If you're the kind of person who doesn't value discourse, we probably won't have very much fun.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
National, state, and local politics. I listen to NPR and keep up with a bunch of blogs and news sites (Media Matters, AlterNet, ThinkProgress/CampusProgress, and longform.org, just to name a few) almost every morning. I think a lot about gender essentialism, classism, corporate control of government, and income inequality. How can we rise up and change all of this in an effective way? Might our resistance look like the Occupy movement, or will it take another form entirely?

The various quirks of places and other fascinating cultural phenomena. What baseball team do people in Nashville actually root for? How do all the hipsters I see in San Francisco and Brooklyn seem to know each other, afford a lifestyle of near-constant going out, and coordinate their clothes so ridiculously well? Why is it that the Italian beef sandwich hasn't caught on outside Chicago? How did the Twin Cities get to be such a hotbed of geek culture?

All sorts of (useless?) trivia. Among the things rattling around in my brain: area codes, Olympic cities, #1 pop songs, city populations, World Series winners, interstate highway termini. You definitely want me on your team for bar trivia, but you don't want to play me in Trivial Pursuit. I also enjoy playing Scrabble, but I'm only so-so at it.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
I fall right on the line between introvert and extrovert, so on any given night I may want: a sweaty queer dance party, a makeout party, karaoke, a divey bar, a beer-geek bar, a low-key bar without televisions or loud music, or a night in with a couple friends/a lover, a few bowls, and classic video games.

When I lived in Minneapolis, my favorite place to be on a Friday night was drinking beers and gossiping in the front yard with smitten612 and xcarouserx.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
When I was a kid, I used to read the Yellow and White Pages for fun.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You're in NYC, or anywhere in the greater Northeast, and want to hang out somewhere with a nice selection of beers, try a new restaurant with unpronounceable menu items where people aren't Instagramming all the food, walk or bike around a neighborhood or trail, do some kind of fun outdoorsy thing like hiking or geocaching, or make out like teenagers.

Your patience for twee occasionally wears thin.

You're curious about shapenote singing, or you're a shapenote singer yourself and want to connect with another familiar face at a singing.

You're cool with people who are poly/non-monogamous/who don't adhere to the mainstream conception of what intimate relationships ought to look like. If you're curious, just ask; poly is something I love to talk about.

You secretly wish Mark, Jez, and Super Hans were real.

Bonus points for Tim and Eric fans, cuddlers, and those of you who have seen/want to see The Room.

Also, bonus points if you consider yourself a "maker." I am immensely jealous of "makers" of all kinds. If you can do shit with your hands or your body, I am in awe. I don't care if it's cooking, woodworking, knitting, robotics, programming (though not brogramming), playing a musical instrument, DJing, jewelry design, dancing, martial arts, circus shit, homebrewing, or whatever, I want to learn the things you know how to do.

A word of caution: I generally won't respond to unsolicited IMs from cisgender men with a match percentage of less than 90%. There are plenty of other people out there on this site for you; I'm just not interested.

Femme-y gaymer/geek boys with match percentages over 90% who love to cuddle? I'd love to hear from you.

Also, don't message me if you're a bro, racist, sexist, ableist, homophobe, transphobe, or religious fundamentalist, or if you have ever unironically described yourself as having a "personal brand." Ugggghhhhh.
