My self-summary

- dogs
- beer
- flying
- good music (subjective, I know)
- epiphanies
- North Carolina
I’m really good at
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
None of this really matters, because half the fun in getting to know people is discovering new things but . . .

Music: Townes Van Zandt, Drive By Truckers, Johnny Cash (THIS:, Robert Earl Keen, Hank Williams Sr. Lightnin' Hopkins, John Hartford, Tony Rice

Movies: The Big Lebowski, True Grit (2010), Barton Fink, Dr. Strangelove, Vanishing Point, Cool Hand Luke, Blazing Saddles, Blues Brothers, Casablanca

Food: Currently wrapping a fiscal year of beer. My sub-quest in life is to find the perfect combination of burger, beer, space and time. So far a Yuengling and a burger at Callaghan's in Mobile, Alabama is the winner. I've had much better beers and arguably better burgers, but the synergy wasn't there.

Three books that shaped the way I view the world: Autobiography of Malcolm X, The Mind of the South and the Singularity is Near.

I miss Christopher Hitchens and Tim Russert.

TV: Rarely watch TV but still fond of South Park, Simpsons and old Andy Griffith episodes.
The six things I could never do without
I am unabashedly stealing this from another OKC member because it is the most brutally honest I've ever heard to this question, "the truth is we don't really know until we have lost it and I hope to never reach that point."

Oh, that and fire. Seriously, think about how critical fire is to everything that is humankind.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
The impact of increasing automation and robotization on the future of humanity (the singularity, robots in warfare, etc.)

How much our pre-historic "monkey-brain" dominates our day-to-day interactions in ways we don't perceive (especially mating / date selection).

Oh and why so many women define yoga pants a the opposite of "classy". I mean seriously ladies, that isn't even to the halfway point on the spectrum from classy to trashy.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
- I was briefly (and largely accidentally) employed by a deaf porn star for an afternoon in Los Angeles.
You should message me if
Any, though not necessarily all:
- You like good live music.
- You have dogs.
- You like beer.
- DC is not where you want to spend the rest of your life.
- You're not looking for someone with whom to reproduce.

Also ladies, I love the fact that this town is filled with goal driven women who have spent their 20s focusing on their careers and are now ready to focus on starting a family . . . seriously I do. But at the moment I'm finding dating to be akin to a series of job interviews on my way to employment as a husband and that shit ain't cool.

This isn't to say I'm closed to the idea of settling down, but I'd rather let it happen than make it happen.

Finally, please do not be someone who finds Andrew Sorkin's screenwriting compelling.
