My self-summary
Hi, name's Chris. El Khan is a bastardized version of a nickname my friends gave me back in school (El Conquistador).

I have an odd sense of humor that can hold a room's attention. I speak geek well enough; I identified tattoos on a girl's arm as being Klingon script at a glance. Also: read comics/ graphic novels, enjoy watching and dissecting movies, headbanging sometimes, and game.
What I’m doing with my life
Live alone, full time Pharmacy Technician 4 years now. Attended IU Bloomington and South Bend before working.

Trying to learn: the Bass, making mead, and sewing things. All of which make life a little more interesting. Taking a vacation to Europe inside the next couple months. Take in some culture, see the world. That kind of thing. Mostly western nations.
I’m really good at
Strategy games, but not chess. Never could get the hang of it. I do some funny jokes and imitations.
I'm surprisingly adept in the kitchen, more than capable of making things from scratch.
I have a healthy competitive streak, I'll more than likely beat you at a game of air hockey.
The first things people usually notice about me
Personality wise, I might be like some weird fusion of Troy and Abed from Community. Geeky enough to throw out catchphrases and pop culture references, and talk more adult subjects right after.

My good friend while drunk stated "You're a really good friend, but kind of a smartass". So there's that.

People have taken to acknowledging my beard on several occasions, as "magnificent" even.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Short list of movies: Yojimbo, The Professional, Star Wars EP 5, Monty Python and the Holy Grail, Blazing Saddles, Scarface, the Good, Bad, Ugly (not to be confused with another favorite The Good, Bad and Weird from Korea), Detective Dee and the Phantom Flame.

I've been reading more often. A big fan of Stephen King, Mark Twain and HP Lovecraft. Recently finished Native Son by Richard Wright, The Jungle by Upton Sinclair and I'm through the eighth Dresden File book. I'm a bit of a comic guy as well; Preacher, Hellblazer, Sandman and Deadpool.

I don't watch TV much anymore after cutting cable at my place, but I did like;Torchwood, Luther, Doctor Who, Breaking Bad, Walking Dead, and Game of Thrones.

I'm a metal guy: Rush, Iron Maiden, Motorhead, Megadeth, Judas Priest, Nirvana, Black Sabbath, Led Zeppelin, Local H, Mastodon, Faith No More etc. The Mars Volta is a favorite too. Listening to more Punk stuff like Black Flag, Germs, Misfits, The Stooges, The Damned, Buzzcocks and Ramones.
Six things I could never do without
A comfortable Bed, Chris Farley sketches (preferably Chippendales or Matt Foley) , Monty Python and the Holy Grail, good sneakers, an MP3 player, and good book to keep my mind occupied.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Why it seems like the world is becoming meaner and stupider, and the people worse off and less worth knowing.

Also random bits of funny or comical thoughts. Listen to routines from Bill Hicks, Carlin, Pryor, Jim Jefferies, Russel Kane and a bunch of others. It helps get through the day.

If we use the ironic "spirit animal" thing, I'd choose Henry Rollins. Guy's talking shows are a lot like how I think.
On a typical Friday night I am
At work until 7 or later, but I still find a way out of the gloom and into the world. When I do manage to get off I like to go see a movie, or grab a drink with friends.

Most recently, marathoning Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Flight of the Conchords.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Despite what my music listings might indicate, I really like the band Parliament.
I can do a Pec Dance.
There was a couple month period in my pre-teen days where I wore a Du-rag and listened to Eminem. As a related point I used to do the Hammertime dance, as like, a three year old. My mother had no idea what I was doing, and through a seemingly unbelievable series of events, had a voice sample of me saying "hammertime" on MTV in the early 90s.
You should message me if
You can answer me these Questions Three.

What is your Name?
What is your Quest?
What is the Capital of Assyria?

If you want to talk about movies or music or pick my brain.

I've no illusions regarding the state of online dating. The Local H lyrics probably sum it best "That's it, I quit, I don't..........give a shit". And yet I persist.
The two of us
