My self-summary
Thanks for stopping by.
This is hard for me. It's hard to market myself. To be an "honest" salesman of a product I know all too well.
I'd rather not summarize myself just yet. The jury is still out. There have been a few big changes in my life and myself as of late. What has remained constant? I am rather shy and introverted (until we know one another, then all bets are off). I have a great (and perhaps grating) sense of humor and love for others that do as well. I love wit and the horrible puns it can generate. I'm new to e-dating and dating in general for that matter. (More later)

I have a self-worth that borders on the arrogant that is matched only by an inversely proportional lack of self-confidence and "a shyness that is criminally vulgar". How is THAT possible? I'm working on it. (More later)

I love reading, drinking and brewing beer and cider, playing pool, and discussing/arguing really big, but ultimately pointless topics. (More later)
What I’m doing with my life
I assume this is career related. I work in the industry of my favorite hobby...brewing beer. Though when clocked-in, my job is more along the ops/admin line (love me some spreadsheets), I am still immersed daily in the home/craft/micro/nano-brew world. I love my job!
Other than career related. Learning, laughing, and forgetting.
I’m really good at
Arguing. (No, not the "knock-down-drag-out-screaming-fight" variety, the philosophical "let's-clarify-our-terms-and-see-where-or-if-we-really-disagree-and-why" variety.) Listening. Problem solving. I know Poe's "The Raven" and Monty Python's "Philosophers Song" by heart. Oooh, and cunnilingus. ;b ;p d¦
The first things people usually notice about me
The hula-hoop. Nah, just kidding, probably my height. It's the fifth thing they notice that blows their minds.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: I read A LOT. Lately, I've become a slobbering P.G. Wodehouse fan-boy.
Presently reading "Excel 2007 Power Programming with VBA" (I just couldn't wait for the movie to come out. ugh!)
Authors: Terry Pratchett, J.R.R. Tolkien, Douglas Adams, P.G. Wodehouse, Albert Camus, Friedrich Nietzsche, Bertrand Russell, Frank Herbert, Tom Robbins, Douglas Hofstadter, Richard Dawkins, Christopher Hitchens, Lao Tse, William Gibson, Bruce Sterling. (more, as I think of them)
Series: Dune, Discworld, Lord of the Rings, Hitchhiker's Guide, Chung Kuo, Incarnations of Immortality
Novels: A Canticle for Liebowitz, A Confederacy of Dunces, Pillars of the Earth (more, as I think of them)
Non-Fiction: Philosophy, Mathematics, Logic, Philosophy of Mathematics and Logic, Cognitive Science, General Science

Movies: Love 'em but haven't seen a new movie in a long time. But to offer up something...I was recently reminded how much I love "Auntie Mame".
Anything by David Lynch, Monty Python, Coen Bros, Terry Gilliam. The Alien franchise, Fantastic Planet, Serenity, A Clockwork Orange, Blade Runner.

Shows: Twin Peaks, Firefly, Lost (except for the ending (that pissed me directly and precisely off)), Faulty Towers, Venture Bros, MST3K, Monty Python's Flying Circus.

Music: Mostly Industrial or good ol' fashion silence. Skinny Puppy, Dead Voices on Air, Einstürzende Neubauten, Wumpscut, Revolting Cocks, Big Black, (older) Ministry. I like lots of other genres too; it just depends on the mood I'm in. For instance, I also love George Jones. Go figure! Old R&B, 20-30's era jazz (the kind with ukeleles in it).

Food: Yes, please.
Six things I could never do without
Craft Beer
Oooh! Oxygen
More Craft Beer
I spend a lot of time thinking about
A lot of things, then again, nothing. No literally, I think a lot about "nothing", what it "is" and how it differs from "me". My pet project is to find a way to give Solipsism it's rightful place as the fundamental, rational, philosophic standpoint.
On a typical Friday night I am
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I don't drive (never have). I don't solicit rides either. I am completely self-sufficient with a black-belt in CapMetro, walking, biking and cabs. I confess this because I know it could be a deal-breaker to Miss Wrong.
You should message me if
Any of the above was interesting to you.
