My self-summary
Many words can be used to describe me. Among my favorites: Lumberjack. Viking. X-Man. Giant. Wildling. Galactus, Devourer of Planets.
Tall, dork, and handsome, cross between Andy Dwyer and Ron Swanson.

I'm originally from Upstate NY (where we keep all the trees), and spent 2 years in NJ (the nice part, but still... Jersey) before moving to the city 7 years ago.

Anything else you want to know about me you'll either have to read further or ask me. (Actual contact with another human? That's just crazy talk!)
What I’m doing with my life
Working. A lot. I'm a union stagehand and freelance all over the city, so I work odd hours sometimes.
I also have a Tumblr where each day I post a song about a historical event for that day. Basically I gave myself a daily research project involving music and history, for fun. This speaks volumes about me.
Or sleeping. Not gonna lie, I LOVE sleeping. I need to get a job sleeping. Like an MTA employee. (Jokes, America. I got jokes.)
I’m really good at
Making people laugh. Either with me or at me.
Useless trivia.
Bumping my head a lot and otherwise generally injuring myself in fun new ways. My old boss called me "Crash."
Making up new lyrics to songs.
Crossword puzzles.
Eating delicious food. I eat the FUCK out of good food.
The first things people usually notice about me
I'm quite tall. And look like a "Sons of Anarchy" extra.

Also apparently I look Croatian. I'm only 1/4 Croat, but the old Balkan men in my neighborhood talk to me like we're back in Karlovac.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
this list could be pages longer...

Pretty much any Vonnegut, Heinlein, or Palahniuk. Steppenwolf, American Gods, Bossypants, League of Extraordinary Gentlemen, Jitterbug Perfume, just started ASOIAF. Currently reading: Rap on Race

Dirty Dozen, Big Lebowski, Roger Rabbit, and too many others. Too many. Most recent watched: Ghostbusters

I'm huge into GoT, and I quote Futurama, 30 Rock, and Arrested Development in casual conversation. Also other shows you probably watch.
Currently watching: Mr. Robot, Ink Master, John Oliver, @midnight, football, and as always: SVU
Also rewatching Homicide on DVD

I have an incredibly eclectic musical taste, but predominantly like hard rock, 90s rock & hip-hop, but I also dig folk, old country, blues, Motown, etc. Recently acquired a record player, my folks' vinyl collection, and a line of credit at the local record shop so that's been my musical obsession as of late. Most recent purchases: White Zombie, John Prine, Smashing Pumpkins, the Roots

I generally prefer food that used to have legs. I also like food from all over the world (living in Queens helps). And of course, salt potatoes. You don't even know what those are, but you love them. They're that good.
The six things I could never do without
besides the basics (food/water/shelter/loved ones/sex)? In no order:

- music (I don't think you understand how important music is to me)
- intelligent conversation (I don't get enough)
- a creative outlet (I love making things)
- my car (it's not much, but it's a way out of town, and it's mine)
- naps (sleep is the best)
- I tried to not say "my phone" but who am I kidding?
I spend a lot of time thinking about
My next tattoo.
The semantics of the OKC questions.
The logistics involved in the construction of various structures and buildings.
The paradox of HATING the tourists, but knowing my job depends on all all the sweet money brought in by the chain-smoking Québécois and mouth-breathing Appalachians that clog our sidewalks.
Hoping Québécois women aren't offended by that last statement.
UPDATE: at least one is, she wrote to tell me.
On a typical Friday night I am
doing the same thing I do every night: try to take over the world.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I love George Michael's "Freedom '90."
You should message me if
You've got a brain, a personality, and maybe some appealing physical traits.
You're 5'9" or taller. I'm serious, that's a deal breaker. Nothing against shorter women, there's just any number of annoyances that come with dating someone drastically shorter than me.
You're GGG too.
