Every time I try to start one of these I start wondering not only what Im conveying but also what Im projecting... the tone of my information so to speak. I could tell you I am a great something or other but the way I tell it is also... er, telling. In order to minimize the posturing and chest puffing, I figure bullets are the way to get across the point without muddying the method.

I am Artsy, Mischevious, and Anti-Subtle
I come across as totally extroverted but Its easy for me to be shy in large social settings.
Im also fairly funny. See? I just did something funny. You missed it.
I like to think I have an eye for details in many things... little stuff that people tend not to really notice but can improve/detract from the character of something. For better or worse, I tend to remember everything. The color of a room, the wording in the way someone explains something, the timing of a joke. By no means am I am expert but I do have an extensive background in effective theatrical and dramatic aesthetics.
That is unless I am currently dancing somewhere or climbing something I shouldnt.
Books - The Princess Bride, RPGs in general, Harry Potter, Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy, Alice in Wonderland, Alice through the Looking Glass, American Gods is my current favorite book...
Movies - (changes too often but currently...) Snatch, Sin City, Burn the Floor, Labrynith (oh and I have to add some of my fav cartoons, though Im not at all a tv person besides these... Harvey Birdman, Venture Brothers, Aqua Teen Hunger Force, Family Guy!)
Recent Addition... though I do not even own a TV, Ive been watching episodes of Heroes online and, while the writing isnt brilliant and some of the character interactions are clearly plot railroaded, its very very fun
Update... Ok, so its gotten so much better. Yay for www.nbc.com
Update... finished first season... its pretty awesome
Music - Lately alot of Bobby Darrin... but in general 80s new wave, Jazz classics, synth pop, hair metal, Indie Rock... lots and lots of stuff. Here is a short list of artists, in no particular order, that come to mind - Frank Sinatra - Prince - Pink Floyd - Talking Heads - Talk Talk - Tears for Fears - AC/DC - Beethoven - Danny Elfman - Smashing Pumpkins - Me First and the Gimmi-Gimmis - Tons of musicals - Tons and tons of video game music - Tango (in general) - Really anything I can dance to... any number of styles
Current favorite songs are "Song with a Mission" by the Sounds, "Legs" by ZZTop, "Wonderwall" covered by Ryan Adams, "Now that I am Blind" by Death Ray and the long intro from "Shine on you crazy Diamond" by Pink Floyd

I know most people put actual objects in this but I really dont own much I actually care a great deal about...
Update: cept for my wonderful and amazing corner desk from IKEA! I think they deserve the free advertising for it!
Update: At Great Scotts in Allston, basically... thats more or less a sure bet these days. Indie Rock night called The Pill... yea, its pretty awesome!
