My self-summary
I am a thinking man's artist. I go off on these tangents where I do nothing, but smoke cigarettes (I did quit), drink coffee and draw/paint. I read EVERYTHING(except trashy romance novels, I guess). I'm a well educated linguist with an affinity for using the entirety of my vocabulary. I love the cadence and sound of good grammar. I've traveled, though I've only visited one foreign country. I am learning how to play the guitar. I have plenty of scars. Real and figurative. I like them. They tell me where I've been. Despite having an awful childhood, I manage to smile and laugh a lot. I love the eccentricities of everyone I meet. I'm deeply empathic and give good (and fair) advice. I like having friends from all walks of life. I try to make art , think clearly and dream deeply.
What I’m doing with my life
"I'm tired of chasing my dreams.... I think I'll just ask them where they're going and hook up with 'em later!"

Puzzles. Codebreaking. Painting. Drawing. Martial Arts. Proof reading. Advice. Sex. Coffee.

TV: Penny Dreadful, Sherlock, Carnivále, Battlestar Gallactica, Luther, Community, Defiance, The Killing, The Bridge, Venture Bros., Game of Thrones, Firefly, Angel, too many to keep track of...

And Batman, in every medium.

Politics. Parking the Batmobile. Naruto. Since I used to live in Puerto Rico and Hawaii, I surf in my dreams. I really miss it.
On a typical Friday night I am
Working out only goes so far as entertainment....
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I snore. To varying degrees. Apparently have gotten better about it.
You should message me if
1) Anime is your bag.
2) You like (and can reciprocate) fascinating conversations.
3) Bemoan the loss of Carnivále.
4) The desire to chat with someone who's lived an interesting life because he tried it instead of just saying 'nah'.
5) Don't wish to convert me (whether it is your god or Twilight: I wish an audience with neither....)
6) Can teach me something new. I love learning...
7) I'll come up with more criteria!
8) You're a sex kitten with a doctorate (variations of that dynamic).
9) Inclusive and tolerant. You support marriage equality and gay rights. I don't understand people who would undermine someone else's happiness or thinks that even when two consenting adults get together the configuration or sexual acts are their business.
10) You're an atheist/antitheist/agnostic.
