Hi, I'm Ryan.
I'm just this guy, you know? If you can tell me where I ripped that
quote from, we'll probably get along great.
What I’m doing with my life
I love my job in IT, but I love doing other things more. Like
flying airplanes. Great hobby. You should try it. Kind of
expensive, but awesome.
I love a lot of stuff, including traveling, playing music, cooking
for people, and sitting around in the woods watching the sun rise.
So I try to do those things as often as possible.
I’m really good at
Computers, accents, cooking... I'm good at quite a few things, so
it is kind of hard to choose what to include. Instead, I'll tell
you what I'm absolutely NOT good at, and that is any kind of visual
art. I can music like a motherfucker, but I can barely draw a stick
figure. And I can't dance, either. I don't mind trying, though.
I'll happily go out and make a fool of myself.
The first things people usually notice about me
I have no idea.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: Asimov, Crichton, Sagan, Clarke, PKD, Clavell, Michener,
Bukowski, Burroughs... and lots more.
Movies: I like a lot of movies, but I tend to think Brazil is
probably just about the best movie ever made and I wish Terry
Gilliam would make more movies.
Shows: Oh, the usual. Sundays on HBO are awesome right now with
Game of Thrones, Veep, and Silicon Valley. Oh yeah, and John
Oliver's new show is on now, too. Breaking Bad. Bob's Burgers. The
Walking Dead. Mad Men. Firefly (OK, anything Joss). Anything set in
space, really. Pretty much anything at all for that matter, as long
as it's good. OH GOD I FORGOT DR. WHO AND TORCHWOOD. OK, there they
Music: All the music. Jazz, metal, classical, bluegrass... don't
care. Love it. Special place in my heart for punk rock,
Food: All the food. Even the nasty bits.
The six things I could never do without
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Orbital mechanics. Mostly because I suck at Kerbal Space Program.
On a typical Friday night I am
Enjoying live music, or not enjoying live music.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I would totally go gay for Alex Gordon.
You should message me if
You think I'm potentially interesting (hint: I am).
