My self-summary
"Oh god, they fucked it all up. Everything is fucked. We're all fucked." -me, June 24th, 2016

You are here because I sent you a snapshot of my brain shortly after reading your profile. Hello! I am Thomas. This is a collection of snapshots of my brain at several different times when I felt like updating my profile. Have a look around! If you like it, why not try requesting a custom snapshot to see what's happening in my brain just after you send me a message. Fun times for all!

I can be utterly nerdy if I want to be and I know a lot of stuff about a lot of things, none of which is correct or useful.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm a game developer turned software developer for an architecture firm. I code and save time when it comes to planning buildings. I also do RnD some weeks. I'm sort of my own boss because no one understands what I'm saying when I try to explain what I'm doing.
I’m really good at
Climbing, mumbling, touching my toes. Snowboarding.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

You can find me on thesixtyone.com under the same name as here if you'd like to listen to the kind of music I like. I pretty much just go with the suggested tracks now. The "for you" tracks are normally pretty good..

Oh and if you don't recognise any of the people I just listed and you want to look up just one to get a general gist of what I like, look up George Watsky's "Whoa Whoa Whoa". In fact, here's a link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XVQOhIVcMj0

More of a pop song fan? Have a Bo Burnham link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nt9c0UeYhFc

Favourite film is "Frequently Asked Questions About Time Travel" at the moment, although "Galaxy Quest" was pretty awesome and "Treasure Planet" makes me melt inside.

These are just some of my favourites. With most things, if you suggest something I'll probably go look it up and I'll probably like it.
The six things I could never do without
My limbs
My health
My memories
Friends
Family
Fun
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Losing track of what I've just lost track of.
On a typical Friday night I am
In all honesty, I'll probably be playing a computer game. I've lost some of the hearing in my right ear from people yelling into it in clubs so I'm a little pissed at loud music these days. It wasn't even good music.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
If I'm willing to admit it, it's not very private is it.

I change this section every now and then depending on what I want to reveal

This week's reveal is: I watched the new Fantastic 4 film and it was almost one of the best super hero films I've seen. Then the last twenty minutes rolled round and they messed it up by going full Power Rangers. Never go full Power Rangers.

Unless you're a Power Rangers movie. Then always go full Power Rangers, what are you even asking me for, of course go full Power Rangers!
You should message me if
You've read all the stuff I've written here and you're still interested. That's always a good sign!
