My self-summary
"I'm not a machine. I feel and believe. I have opinions. Some of them are interesting. I could, if you'd let me, talk and talk. Let's talk about anything."
What I’m doing with my life
I write, read, go to shows, marvel daily at things on the street, spend a measurable percentage of my income on coffee and cider... but most importantly, I'll stop whatever I'm doing to talk to a cute dog.
I’m really good at
Knowing the first thing about things. Learning second things is difficult and often dangerous, but the first thing is where all the fun lies.
The first things people usually notice about me
I'm taller than you. Yes, taller than that. No, think bigger. I'm really, really tall.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: I am undergoing a 1/4-life crisis because I didn't read as many books as I did in my earlier, nose-constantly-in-Harry-Potter days. Trying to correct that. I'm a big fan of David Foster Wallace and Nabokov, and as of late, Alan Moore. The best nonfiction book I've ever read is 'Thinking, Fast and Slow' by Daniel Kahneman.

update: my favorite writer is dril

Movies: Memento, Children of Men, Network, The Third Man, The Sweet Smell of Success

One time I dated a girl, and we watched Mean Girls together. She didn't like it. We broke up almost immediately after that.

Shows: RuPaul's Drag Race. That's about it

...okay fine also The Wire, Community, and a bunch of other shows. Does basketball count as a show? It is a show. I watch the NBA.

Music: punk/post-punk/all-the-indie-rock-influenced-by-punk; the indie rock NOT influenced by punk; hip hop; electronic music; Satan's Fingers; The Hospital Bombers.

Top 7 albums:
Public Enemy - Fear of a Black Planet
Gang of Four - Entertainment!
The Velvet Underground - The Velvet Underground & Nico
The Stooges - Fun House
Guided By Voices - Bee Thousand
The Magnetic Fields - 69 Love Songs
Kid606 - Kill Sound Before Sound Kills You
The six things I could never do without





I spend a lot of time thinking about
How to phrase things.

How to phrase things while using the word "boner."
On a typical Friday night I am
If I'm in, I'm at a friend's house playing games and forgetting who won the last game.

If I'm out, my favorite bar is one that looks like a complete dive, but secretly has the best cocktails for miles. It's like a secret, except with a purposefully-flickering 'BAR' sign.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Stop asking me about the Quest for Rutabaga, okay? I am so fucking sick of people messaging me for no other reason but to ask about the stupid Quest for Rutabaga. If you only message me about the Quest for Rutabaga and no other reason, you WILL NOT get a response.
You should message me if
...you're enthusiastic about something interesting. Humor is necessary, sarcasm is fine; just have something that you care about, and we'll probably get along great.

...if you want to talk about books, movies, music, movies about music, books about music, music about books, books about movies, movies about books, etc.

...if you think that OKCupid's 1k-word suggested minimum punishes those who spend time cutting words from their profile to make it read better. How dare you suggest my profile isn't "finished," OKCupid. It won't be finished until I sufficiently self-summarize in sub-haiku-length.

...if you're Charli XCX http://www.onionstudios.com/videos/charli-xcx-covers-backstreet-boys-2432

...if you're far, far away. Tell me about other places.

...your ideal man is not one featured on letsnotdate.tumblr.com or the dearly departed Nice Guys of OKC tumblr

...you think Ian Curtis is the epitome of masculinity.

...you have a cute dog.
