My self-summary
I suppose it's time to update my profile, mostly because I'm bored, but also because I haven't given it a thorough updating in quite some time, instead just updating it in patch jobs here and there. Okay I'm starting to sound like I'm talking about a car.

Hi! I'm Logan! While my location currently says Chicago, IL, I don't actually live there yet. I presently live in Mobile, AL, but am in the process of prepping my house for sale with the hopes of moving to Chicago (fingers crossed) by the end of October.

I have set my profile to say I'm in Chicago because I have no desire to try and meet women here in Mobile anymore as it makes zero sense from a relationship standpoint to try and explore anything at this point. So I figure I can put Chicago in there and maybe chat with someone before I show up so I don't go into Chicago blind. I'm open to whatever, too. If you just want to meet a new friend, that's cool, I'm friendly! If you're interested in me as more than that, I might be interested, too, who knows!?

None of this is a summary of myself, and I apologize. Aside from typing way too much (which you'll notice if you actually decide to read all this): I'm honest, I'm loyal, I'm a bit of a nerd, and I love Chicago Cubs baseball way too much. Well, way too much for someone who presently lives in a red state that only cares about college football. I'm sure I'll be just another Cubs fan in Chicago.

I'm funny, or at least I think I am. Second City thought so, and they accepted me into the Harold Ramis Film School program for the winter session, which is the impetus for me moving to Chicago. Oh yeah, I'm a filmmaker. Howdy!
What I’m doing with my life
Aside from the aforementioned film school, just trying to get my life in order to prepare for a major city change. When I first started updating my profile for Chicago I said I was aiming to be there by the end of August. Then the end of September. Now it's looking like the end of October. My house is doing that thing where it knows I need to fix very specific things, so instead of being cool it wants to stab me in the back and have different things break down and cost me money that I had been saving up to fix the other things. My house is alive and its name is Judas Iscariot The House. He's a dick.

Aside from filmmaking and house renovating, I also build websites for a local tech shop. I've been building websites for so long that I really hope I never have to build another one as long as I live, but that's just not gonna happen.
I’m really good at
Making decadent peanut butter & jelly sandwiches, spending money on interesting and/or useless things, fawning over filmmaking equipment, ignoring my dentist, throwing away the yellow pages, driving a car safely like a God damn champion, and saying the words/phrases "apparently", "here's the thing", "but, uh, yeah, so...", and many many more.

Haha, ahhhhh I'm just kidding, I don't have a dentist.
The first things people usually notice about me
My voice is as deep as the ocean is... deep, I guess. I was called Barry White in high school by two girls who insisted on having me say "Hey baby" over and over again much to their delight. They would walk past me in the hallway, ask me to say it, I would, then they laughed and left. I have forgotten their names.

Speaking of, I forget names easily. I should probably put that in the "Things I'm good at" section, but you might notice it quickly in a social setting. I will literally forget someone's name 10 seconds after being told their name about 90% of the time. Unless it's a unique name like Chrysannalisa or someone who actually goes by Zachariah instead of Zach like a weirdo.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I don't read books as much as I'd like to. I buy them with the intention of reading them and mostly never do. Of the few that have escaped my lackadaisical reading nature:

The Chaos Walking Series (first two books anyway), World War Z, Ready Player One, Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?, The Rules of Attraction, American Psycho, and I'm trying to start reading the A Song of Ice and Fire series, which is way too daunting of a task.

I also love comic books, though I've also not had time to read many of them lately either. Some of my favorites are

Fell, Saga, East of West, Peter Panzerfaust, Ten Grand, Locke & Key, Fatale, Chew, Happy!, Revival, Rat Queens, Transmetropolitan, Deadly Class, Sex Criminals, Petrograd, The Walking Dead, Letter 44, Y: The Last Man, Nowhere Men

I love movies, and can't wait to get to a city with proper theaters that show proper movies and not just popcorn blockbuster fodder and right wing propaganda documentaries (not a joke, there's an anti Hillary Clinton doc playing at my theater right now). As for my favorite movies, I can give you my Top 15 easy, and in order:

1) L.A. Confidential
2) Who Framed Roger Rabbit?
3) The Usual Suspects
4) Dawn of the Dead (1978)
5) Wristcutters: A Love Story
6) Spaceballs
7) Amélie
8) Shaun of the Dead
9) One Flew Over The Cuckoo's Nest
10) Moon
11) Clue
12) The Fall
13) Wet Hot American Summer
14) Se7en
15) A Very Long Engagement

Also, I intentionally leave out certain movies because they should be in everyone's Top list, and to me it's cliché to list them so I'd prefer to let people know about other movies that you might not expect to see that make you look them up on IMDB so it might interest folks in watching them (not that any of my choices are particularly obscure). These movies I refer to are ones like Back to the Future, Ghostbusters, The Big Lebowski, Goodfellas, Pulp Fiction, Shawshank Redemption, etc. They are all amazing movies, but everyone knows about them so I don't want to bore people into letting them know I like the same movies as everyone else.

TV. So much TV, too little time. At the moment the only shows I actively watch/DVR: Game of Thrones, Brooklyn Nine-Nine, New Girl, Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, STRANGER THINGS, Last Week Tonight with John Oliver, Last Man on Earth, Comedy Bang! Bang!, Better Call Saul, Billy on the Street, Adam Ruins Everything, Archer, Halt and Catch Fire, The Walking Dead, aaaaaaand... I don't know what else. I suppose The Grand Tour once it starts.

My TV favorite of all time though? Arrested Development, 30 Rock, Top Gear (ugh to the new stuff), Parks and Recreation, Community, Cosmos, Futurama, Human Giant, Hustle, Mob City, anything that was on NBC Must See TV in the 90's, and a myriad of other things that I'm too lazy to look up and you're probably too lazy to read about at this point in this epic novel of a list.

I used to be a huge metalhead when I was younger, now I listen to a lot of indie/electronic/alternative stuff. Pretty much anything except country music (as in schlock like Toby Keith). Music I'm currently listening to:

PUP, The Dirty Nil, Sweet Crude, Lil Dicky, Run The Jewels, Purity Ring, Pearl & The Beard, Dan Mangan, CHVRCHES, Grimes, Kavinsky, Alabama Shakes, Hurray for the Riff Raff, Sleigh Bells, Weezer, Aesop Rock, Sage Francis, Surfer Blood, Talking Heads, The Mountain Goats, Tom Waits, The Interrupters, They Might Be Giants, Future Islands, Dark Dark Dark, Tally Hall, Phantogram, You Won't, Baby Baby, Margot & The Nuclear So and So's, The Cat Empire, Youth Lagoon, Faded Paper Figures, Passion Pit, Metric, Asobi Seksu, Sleeper Agent, Kiss Kiss, Bad Religion, Streetlight Manifesto, Teddybears, Avett Brothers, Muse, Shane Koyczan and the Short Story Long, Eels, Sigur Ros, Jonsi, Daft Punk, Gogol Bordello, Fiona Apple, Ingrid Michaelson, MGMT, Regina Spektor, James Blake, Gotan Project, Devotchka

Among others. Spotify is everything.
The six things I could never do without
1) My unwavering hatred for making lists
2) just kidding, I love lists, I just spent like 63 paragraphs making them above
3) What am I supposed to be doing again?
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Ways to get to Chicago faster.
On a typical Friday night I am
Is it embarrassing that I'm updating this profile on a Friday night? Maybe.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
You should message me if
You understand that I'm not in Chicago yet, and that's cool with you. You like to laugh, you like to have insightful conversations, you're into artistic culture, you're not voting for Donald Drumpf, you really like decadent peanut butter and jelly sandwiches, you think I'm just a swell and entertaining gentlemen.
