My self-summary
Seductive, sapiosexual, secular.

When I find things I enjoy, I make time for them. Music, fitness, friends, good eats and brews, those sort of things. I'm extremely experimental, I always want to try something new, and I love to do it with hardy companions.

I enjoy a variety of reading, music, visual art, film, and Netflix - as much as I enjoy a variety of outdoors, cultural, and artistic activities. All are things that I love to enjoy with a partner, especially when enriched with engaging conversations.

Bits about my attitudes can be summed up in the personality tab. I can be outgoing, though in my natural habitat I'll oscillate between nerdy excitement and calm attentiveness. I'm extremely nice, to a fault, and compassionate. If I can make time for it I do activism, focusing largely on secular, environmentalist, and humanist activities. I'd like any potential dates to find these interests appealing and want to join me in some of my intellectual, natural, or musical adventures.

I'm making a concerted effort to complete a half triathlon in the next year or so with the Ironman set as the end goal. I'm not that much of a masochist, I swear! If you have a RunKeeper, we should be fitness pals.

Most of my free time is spent doing lab, band, & school related things. Science & Metal \m/,
What I’m doing with my life
Full-time undergraduate studies, research in a social neuroscience and a cognitive psychology lab, bass guitar in a couple metal bands, and food service to pay the rent.
I’m really good at
Studying, puns, alliteration, baking, massages, stir-frying, math, meading, flaring nostrils, computer technology, science.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Trying to shorten these lists. Heh.

Webcomics! XKCD, The Oatmeal, Questionable Content, Saturday Morning Breakfast Cereal

Concerts

I recently enjoyed Children of Bodom in Chicago and just finished my first gig with Stormcaller. Best show of this spring was Enslaved opening for Amon Amarth. Check out A Black Sea, the product of a collaboration between the STL bands (folk music) Indian Blanket and (doom/black metal) A Lion's Daughter - and it's amazing. They blew me away last fall playing it live, and if they ever do it again you won't want to miss out.

Books

Don't have much time for recreational reading, but I love making time to read things related to research/school, so I read a lot of non-fiction though my favorite authors are J.R.R. Tolkien, Phillip Pullman, Kurt Vonnegut, Patrick Rothfuss, Douglas Hofstadter, Alan Moore, Niel Gaiman, and Oscar Wilde

Movies:

Monty Python and the Holy Grail, Clerks, The Hobbit, Stardust, Thank You for Smoking, Anchorman, The Princess Bride, Watchmen, Black Swan, The Illusionist, The Seventh Seal, Labyrinth, The Boondock Saints, Lord of the Rings Trilogy, Dogma, V for Vendetta, Zoolander, Donnie Darko, The Life of Brian, The Usual Suspects, Dr. Strangelove, Eddie Izzard specials, and anything with Simon Pegg or anything directed by Quentin Tarantino, the Coen brothers, or Tim Burton.

Music?!

I am very keen on folk, symphonic, and progressive metal. The occasional bluegrass, jazz, and indie, folk, and punk rock artist is found on my youtube and computer. From time to time I will delve into related genres, symphony, and ethnic instrumental music (Arabic lutes ftw). Most of my listening habits consist of metal, with deep explorations in various subgenres including avante-garde black, symphonic, power, thrash, death, viking, pagan, and techdeath. I'm also quite fond of many video game and a few movie soundtracks.

My last.fm is zanthir.

Games.

I enjoy card, table-top, and board games socially. Especially Scrabble, Munchkin, and Cards Against Humanity. Social console games are great. Come over and play Rocksmith with me! I might also bust out my silly dancing Playstation Move games. I still have my n64, so Mario Kart. Outside of these multiplayer games I don't really play video games anymore. I used to. The last games I played extensively were League of Legends and LOTRO.
The six things I could never do without
I'd rather not lose my lust or faculties responsible for enjoying complex understanding and physical activity.

I don't take Fridays off except for important concerts.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I don't know how to drink IPAs or what to put here. I'm only secretive about things people tell me to keep secret.
