My self-summary
I like to think I'm "zen." One of my friends says that I just don't give a sh*t about anything. Isn't that the same thing? I like to picture the world as a song and, much the opposite of the real world, I'm fluidly dancing through life.

There are several things you need to know about me:

First, I'm a nerd/geek/dork. I often consider myself a "high functioning nerd" in the sense that I can write a profile that you find humorous and charming, but not overly goofy. I am able to carry on a conversation, I think I generally sound intelligent, and I don't live in my mothers basement (though I hold nothing against anyone that does).

Secondly, I'm a confusing mix interests and lifestyles. I'm a nerd and gamer, I can tell you all about the next xbox and Microsofts Illumiroom project. I can also tell you that the paint in my new apartment is Timeless Ruby offset by Country Linens, not Burgundy and Tan. I ride a motorcycle, I like cruisers, not sport bikes, and while I generally don't like the way I look in pictures, I look pretty f**king good in my leather jacket. In the future I hope to own a home with a small library/study where I can begin collecting antique, collectible and ancient books.

I was in the military for about 5 years. It was, without a doubt, the best and worst times of my life. It's not something I talk about a lot, but I'm not adverse to discussing it.

I like to sit at my computer and sing at the top of my lungs while I listen to music. I'm not sure my neighbors are amused. I also like to rock out in my car, but I don't sing in the shower, because I'm not so good a capella.
What I’m doing with my life
Working, living, eating, breathing. Wondering when my stock will go back up, trying to figure out that next "if you don't do it now, it's never going to happen" adventure. Planning how to be super successful so that everyone will be just a little bit jealous.

Looking for my Art3miss.
I’m really good at
Kid/Teen week on Jeopardy. 63% of the time, I can beat them every time.

Being awesome. Thinking outside the box, I spend most of my existence outside the box. I'm not like any guy you've ever met before.
The first things people usually notice about me
Yes.

I like to be totally absurd. I get a lot of my inspiration from movies and tv (like Family Guy). Many people look at movies and say, "You can't act that way in real life."

I can.

Why?

Because it's unexpected, and that's golden.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Movies:
1-Fight Club
2-The Fifth Element
3-Corpse Bride
4-Pineapple Express
5-Resident Evil

I LOVE the first Resident Evil movie. Even the commentary is great.

Stranger Than Fiction and Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind were also very excellent movies.

Books: I mostly enjoy science fiction, hard scifi, and fantasy. My absolute favorite book is Ready Player One by Ernest Cline. If you like video games, 80's pop culture, treasure hunts and a dash of hopeless romance, you need to read this book. I also greatly enjoyed The Name of the Wind by Patrick Rothfuss. On the non-fiction side, I loved Lone Survivor, and The Professor and the Madman (an account of the compiling of the first English Dictionary ((the Oxford English Dictionary, if you were curious)).

Tv shows: Stargate SG-1 was the greatest show on TV, it's not up for debate. Pretty much anything DIY, especially Bath Crashers and Renovation Realities. Big Bang Theory, Breaking Bad, Archer, Bob's Burgers.

Music: This is where I list a bunch of stuff you've never heard of, and you list a bunch of bands that I've never heard of because that's how cool we are and it does nothing to draw us closer. So: I like the music I listen to.
The six things I could never do without
I recently discovered the awesomeness that is cruise control in my car. I love cruise control. Quick note: having used it for a while now, it has really shown me how inconsistently other people drive and they are making me crazy.

I would come up with some other things, but I'm too unconventional to list "normal things" ie: food, air, computer, family etc... and I'm too lazy at the moment to come up with something clever. So, just know that whatever I would have put here would have simultaneously been impressive, made you smile, and maybe even turned you on a little. NBD.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Oh you know... pondering the mysteries of the universe and whatnot.

Like whether or not (or which) sitcoms are still filmed in front of live studio audiences.

I also find myself thinking about people that love their jobs and why I don't love mine. Have I just not found that job yet, or do I have the type of personality that won't allow me to love a job?
On a typical Friday night I am
Okay, serious time. If you don't find me totally appalling, send me a message. Let me buy you dinner sometime. Worst case scenario? We don't really have anything in common, and you lose a few hours on a date with a guy that is delightfully awkward, but definitely not an a**hole.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I like some chick flicks. I think a lot of guys do, but they're just not willing to admit it. I enjoyed The Devil Wears Prada, Julie and Julia, and She's Out of My League.

Don't tell anyone.
You should message me if
Hopefully if you looked at my profile and liked it.

Protip: don't message me if you've hated everything you read.

Oh, but no zombies please.

Okay, zombies.
