My self-summary
You know, I've tried sincere, I've tried funny... I don't know what to put on here. I'm going to try Informative...

[Edit - I'm not A-List so if you want to chat, please just say Hi.]

I'm a computer tech for a living. I've lived in Syracuse for about 10 years, but I'm an introvert and a homebody, so I still don't know the area around Syracuse very well. I'm the kind of guy who likes being open-minded about as much as I can, which includes trying to learn new things and suggesting new things to others.

I love music, especially rock of all kinds. I sing, play guitar and piano. I'm also teaching myself bass and drums, since I record music at home in my spare time (and publish it on YouTube when it doesn't sound too horrible). I also am the creative type in other ways. When the muse hits, i write poetry, my own songs, and I'm working on some stories that I hope become books in my spare time.

I value loyalty, honesty, good conversations, and good friends. I've been lucky to meet extremely good friends over the years, and I appreciate them very much.

And I am a Weirdo, but in a good way hopefully.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm currently working full time and attempting to figure out how to also study and finish my BA. I'm also trying to work my ass off (or my stomach actually) and get into better shape.
I’m really good at
Fixing Computers.
Video-games.
Listening to others.
Giving good advice.
Seeing the good in others, though sometimes I'm wrong about that...
Day Dreaming.
Seeing the beauty around me that others sometimes miss.
Other random things...

For a full and detailed list, just ask.
The first things people usually notice about me
It'd probably have to be my sense of humor, which is dry and sarcastic though rarely intentionally mean.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
A) The entirety of Harry Potter, most Dianne Wynne Jones books (especially the Chronicles of Chrestomanci), the His Dark Materials trilogy, the Eragon books (called the Inheritance Cycle now), the Vampire Chronicles, the Mayfair Trilogy, the Sookie Stackhouse books, the House of Night series, Vampire Academy, Vampire Diaries and anything else that strikes my fancy.

B) My god, too many. Romantic comedies, comedies, horror, action, sci-fi, fantasy... you name it. Examples include: 300, 2012, A Walk In The Clouds, As Good As It Gets, Constantine, Erin Brockovich, Forgetting Sarah Marshall, French Kiss, I Love You Man, In and Out, Life As A House, Mickey Blue Eyes, Next, Real Genius, Sneakers, Someone Like You, Speechless, That Touch Of Mink, The American President, The Count Of Monte Cristo, The Craft, The Exorcism of Emily Rose, The Killers, The Ugly Truth, The Three Musketeers, Tron, Yes Man, You've Got Mail ... add hundreds to these.

C) All Rock, throughout the years. I know songs from Elvis and the Beach Boys to Fall Out Boys and Aerosmith. Some bands to give you a better idea include: Lacuna Coil, Beatles, Aerosmith, Al Green, Alice Cooper, Alice In Chains, Audioslave, Billy Joel, Bryan Adams, Bush, Counting Crows, Creedance, David Bowie, Def Leppard, Deftones, Disturbed, Dishwalla, Dropkick Murphys, Enigma, Evanescence, Fastball, Fiona Apple, Five For Fighting, Frank Sinatra, Flaming Lips, Jace Everett, La Secta, Live, Maná, No Doubt, Queen, R.E.M., REO Speedwagon, Roxette, Stone Temple Pilots, The Fray, The Wallflowers. This is just a sample. And obviously, I don't know ALL the songs of ALL the above. I just know certain songs I love.
The six things I could never do without
My family
My friends
My computer (internet included)
My cellphone
My guitar or piano
My car
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How the world could be a better place, how we as people tend to forget our manners or think less of those we think have menial jobs, how silly people can be, how incredible some news stories are, how incredibly beautiful the world can be...

Why no one messages me is in there somewhere too.
On a typical Friday night I am
Hanging out at home watching a movie or series, or with friends.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I don't know right now.
You should message me if
If you like long conversations... if you like movies and/or video games... if you're open minded about the millions of possibilities in the universe...

If you like gentlemen who will open the door for you any time their absent-mindedness lets them remember... if you like guys who are honest and kind...

And of course, if you want to.
