My self-summary
Very outdated ditty I wrote to put here:

Hey, my name is Bradley.
I guess I'm pretty fond of life.
I'm a pacifist and a chameleon.
I like to think i'm good at everything.
And yes, this list is organized by length.
I'm VERY bisexual. (whatever that means)
I go crazy for Jazz and Irony. And nerding out.
I grew up as a devout Mormon, but I am an atheist.
I accumulate music at warp 9 and Levi's 511 jeans almost as quickly.
I'm an odd sort of optimist. i.e. "Whenever you're feeling stressed about work, just remember you're going to die." ...that sort of thing.

"Hey, Could we do that again? I know we haven't met, but I don't want to be an ant. You know? I mean, it's like we go through life with our antennas bouncing off one another, continuously on ant autopilot, with nothing really human required of us. Stop. Go. Walk here. Drive there. All action basically for survival. All communication simply to keep this ant colony buzzing along in an efficient, polite manner. Here's your change. Paper or plastic?' Credit or debit? You want ketchup with that? I don't want a straw. I want real human moments. I want to see you. I want you to see me. I don't want to give that up. I don't want to be ant, you know?"

What I’m doing with my life
I just graduated from UC Riverside with a degree in English. I almost studied Music (I play Jazz piano and I sing) but I figure I can do these without a degree - yes, I will play your piano if you have one.

I'd rather not talk heavily about religion, politics, or my family. Touchy subjects. Nutshell version: I grew up in Agoura Hills CA, and have moved around at least every year since graduating high school: Northern Cali, Hawaii, Utah, Encino CA, Riverside, Agoura again. I'm completely on my own and I've worked a number of different jobs, up to three concurrently. Forgive me if I have a hard time sitting still. =P
I’m really good at
making mix CDs.
and everything on this list:
The Nine Types of Intelligence - By Howard Gardner.
The first things people usually notice about me
I'm fucking interesting.
Like everyone else.

People are either chaos muppets or order muppets: Order muppets include Bert, Scooter, Sam the Eagle, Kermit the Frog - I am most certainly an order muppet.
Chaos muppets, on the other hand, include Cookie Monster, Miss Piggy, Ernie, Grover, Gonzo. If you are a chaos muppet, I have been waiting to meet you. <3

Myers-Briggs type: INTP
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: Sex Drugs and Cocoa Puffs, East of Eden, The Fountainhead (except Ayn Rand is crazy), A Clockwork Orange because of the film, Oryx and Crake, Zone One, The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier and Clay, Life of Pi, Tortilla Curtain, and the classics we read in school: The Great Gatsby, everything Shakespeare, Lord of the Flies, anything written by Edgar Allen Poe, (dare I mention Harry Potter)... etc. etc. I really like to read.

Movies: Waking Life, The Garden State, Hard Candy, Requiem for a Dream, A Clockwork Orange, Seven Pounds, Sweeney Todd, What's Up Doc?, Kinky Boots, Fight Club, Shawshank Redemption, Pulp Fiction, The Breakfast Club etc.

Shows: Doctor Who, Skins (UK), House, Scrubs, Will & Grace, Star Trek TNG, Archer, It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia, The Big Bang Theory, Community, Psych, White Collar, Burn Notice, Weeds, Modern Family, Breaking Bad, Game of Thrones, House of Cards, Orange is the New Black


The broadest descriptors would be Jazz (not listed here) and Indie:
The Weakerthans, Jónsi, Sufjan Stevens, Freelance Whales, Two Door Cinema Club, Mother Mother, Bon Iver, Darwin Deez, Bright Eyes, Animal Collective, Radical Face, Feist, Imogen Heap, Of Montreal, Beck, Daft Punk, Gorillaz, The Weepies, Belle and Sebastian, The Shins, Rogue Wave, Geoff Farina, The Strokes, Grizzly Bear, Fleet Foxes, Passion Pit, Hot Chip, Sigur Rós, The Naked and Famous, Boy in Static, Fionn Regan, Beck, Psapp, Explosions in the Sky, Elliott Smith, Zero 7, Télépopmusik, Shpongle, Washed Out, Parenthetical Girls, The Fruit Bats, Emancipator... etc. (this will be outdated in a week)... My music library is nearing 20thousand songs or something obscene. I'm the type who hears a song I like and downloads the entire discography. And I listen to it all.

Food: I was vegetarian for a year and a half after high school. I now maintain it very loosely, mainly out of habit. But it's college, so if meat is what we're having, I can't exactly be choosy.
Six things I could never do without
"the best parts of Lonely,
duct-tape and soldered wires,
new words for old desires,
and every birthday card I threw away."

—The Weakerthans
I spend a lot of time thinking about
On a typical Friday night I am
bending spoons with my mind.
Friday nights are not typical.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
-I like guys. And girls.
-I compulsively edit things.
You should message me if
you solemnly swear you are up to no good.

your music does not sound like microwaved lasagna or a trash compactor.

you are a huge nerd, and/or intelligent
- not mutually exclusive
- batteries sold separately.

Your first message should:
-be longer than 4 words.
-include proper grammar.
-require input from me.
The two of us
