What I’m doing with my life
Running PSU's IT Helpdesk and studying chemistry because I aspire to run computer simulations that determine exactly how screwed we are with regards to our atmosphere. I already have a BA in English but the amount of concrete existential dread I had to absorb for that degree was unsatisfying. I'm looking at grad schools in sunny places right now.

I also play furious drums, cook bountiful meals, own various domain names, keep a 25 year old pickup truck running and constantly put off selling my motorcycle (1985 K100RS), but my main use of free time involves deep dives of the nether reaches of the internet, furthering my search for the greatest gif.
I’m really good at
Breaking up cat and raccoon fights going on in my backyard at night (cat/raccoon fights, raccoon/raccoon fights, cat/cat fights), keeping my cool, drum solos, the internet, stoichiometry
The first things people usually notice about me
My Semitic good looks.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: If it doesn't have Conan of Cimmeria in it I'm just not going to read it. This sounds like a joke, but I'm dead serious. Getting an English degree tore away any desire I had to read anything that wasn't total schlock for 12 year olds.

Movies: David Lynch, Tim Burton before he became a parody of himself, Wes Anderson AFTER he became a parody of himself, Hayao Miyazaki, Wet Hot American Summer, Do the Right Thing, Rover Dangerfield, Pee Wee's Big Adventure, Nicholas Cage losing his shit.

Shows: Dragonball, Twin Peaks, X-Files, Most currently airing kids cartoons, The Critic, Lucky Star, Puella Magi Madoka Magica, Watamote, Berserk, Aim For The Top! Gunbuster, Azumanga Daioh, JoJo's Bizarre Adventure, Himouto! Umaru-Chan, anime in general

Music: Death Grips, Otis Redding, Black Keys, De La Soul, Phil Collins, Snooks Eaglin, The Faint, Gogol Bordello, Bill Withers, Hank Williams Sr and III, White Stripes, Elvin Jones, Black Rebel Motorcycle Club, Benny Greb, Bernard Purdie, Hexen, S.T.R.E.E.T.S., Savage, Nasty Savage, Exorcist, Finntroll, Black Sabbath, Black Sabbath, Black Sabbath, Dio-era Black Sabbath, tons of other dorky metal and Steve Reich. Crowbar.

I spend a lot of time thinking about
mie scattering, rayleigh scattering, aerosols, HCFCs, ticket-tracking software, drumheads, oddly-shaped animals, ADOM, large-diaphragm condenser microphones, whether my shelving suits my current needs, going to bed
On a typical Friday night I am
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I drink maybe once every 3 or 4 months, and only if I have to make smalltalk with someone I don't like. So if we meet up I'll probably have a drink.
