My self-summary
I suppose I'm just your standard, bearded guy, with a cheerful attitude and an overly zealous love for beer. I like bar trivia, but I also like bars in general. I've been called a hipster, but I don't really know what that means; I'm friendly and really down-to-earth even though I frequently wear plaid, work in a coffee shop, have a beard, andohmygodIjustrealizedI'mahipster.

My high school English teacher once told me I had an old soul, which is probably the best compliment I have ever received.
What I’m doing with my life
Living it, I guess? Or trying to, anyway.

Mostly making and eating sandwiches. And taking my dog to the park.
I’m really good at
Things I'm good at:
-cello
-canoeing
-trivia
-growing hair
-board games
-Backpacking
-Making obscure movie references

Things I'm bad at:
-growing plants
-basketball
-using glue
-banjo, but I'm working on it
The first things people usually notice about me
How much I look like Zach Galifianakis, but then on closer inspection, how much I don't.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
This is everything I could think of on short notice:

Books: Catch 22, Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, Cloud Atlas, ASoIaF, anything by Mark Twain, Ernest Hemingway, Kurt Vonnegut, Bill Bryson, or the science fiction greats: Bradbury, Asimov, Heinlein, etc.

Movies: The Iron Giant, Kiss Kiss Bang Bang, For a Few Dollars More (the whole trilogy), Unforgiven, Brazil, Death at a Funeral (the English one), Boogie Nights, Pulp Fiction, the Kill Bills, Looper, Back to the Future (I'm a sucker for time travel movies), Garden State, Walk Hard, The Gods Must Be Crazy, Blazing Saddles, and everything done by the Coen Brothers (especially The Big Lebowski, O Brother Where Art Thou, and No Country for Old Men), or Wes Anderson (especially The Royal Tenenbaums and The Life Aquatic).

Shows: Community, Breaking Bad, Arrested Development, Firefly, The Venture Bros., 30 Rock, Flight of the Conchords.

Music: Basically a lot of classic rock, a fair bit of folk rock, some indie rock, and a heaping portion of classical (Mendelssohn is my jam, but nothing beats Beethoven). But my music changes frequently.

Food: I love all of it. Except I don't like scrambled eggs. I make it a point to try scrambled eggs once a year or so, to make sure I still don't like them, but I haven't come around on it yet. Maybe next year.

*UPDATE* I like scrambled eggs now! Under the right circumstances, which are with a lot of hot sauce and wrapped in a tortilla.
The six things I could never do without
1. The Internet
2. Science. Yeah, Science!
3. Music, both listening and playing
4. A headlamp (seriously get one, it's never not useful)
5. Food, because then I'd be dead. Also, food is delicious.
6. Trees, because whenever I stay inside too long I get antsy.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Daydreaming mostly, thinking about my future, thinking about my present, wondering what the world would be like if the other hominids weren't all extinct, the normal stuff.
On a typical Friday night I am
1. Hanging out with my friends at a bar or someone's house
2. Staying home by myself to watch a movie/chill out and play video games
3. Something else entirely
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I occasionally sing along to Disney songs.

And not just the guy parts.
You should message me if
...you saw something in here that piqued your interest and you'd like to get to know me better. Also, if you want to talk beers or need an addition for your bar trivia team (I don't know music or sports but otherwise I'm pretty good).

I also just realized I said "guy parts" in the previous section, and it's making me laugh more than it should.
