My self-summary
I'm a born southerner (born in Chattanooga), raised northerner (that never really fit in up north), and have finally returned to the south, where I finally feel at home again.

I just moved to Florida from Georgia. More to come soon.
What I’m doing with my life
Coming soon.
I’m really good at
My best skills lie in cooking, science, and technology. In addition to that I am an amateur author and screenwriter (with one movie in process, likely indefinitely). I am certainly a geek, and tend to focus on creative ways to engineer solutions to problems. Because of that, I do tend to be highly logical at times, even though my nature is mostly juvenile and emotion driven.
The first things people usually notice about me
I guess that now I have all of my hair cut off, people tend to notice my smile and friendly demeanor.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Anything by Neil Gaiman, Aldous Huxley (I love Brave New World), Ken Kesey, George Carlin (a brilliant writer as well as a brilliant comedian, RIP), George Orwell (1984 in particular - it was supposed to be a warning, but it appears to now be an operating manual), Anthony Burgess (A Clockwork Orange), and many others. Predominately I prefer political fiction (specifically anti-totalitarian or technological hell fiction - and I don't mean Tom Clancy sort of shit - I want real literature), as well as social and religious satire.

I love cinema in all its forms. I really prefer independent film, however, as very few original films have been made by Hollywood in the past 30 years. In fact, Hollywood has destroyed the art form, rather than contributed to it. I much prefer independent cinema to anything else. That said, a few of my favorite titles (some of which were distributed by major film companies after completion, but were created independently) - Full Metal Jacket, Clockwork Orange, Mating Habits of the Earthbound Human (it's not porn, really), Breaking the Waves, American Beauty, Pink Flamingos, Cry Baby (I was an extra in this one - in the theme park scene - I'm really hard to see, but I'm there - the scene was shot a mile from where I was living at the time), anything by Troma (Lloyd Kaufman, the owner of Troma is a personal friend of mine, and still one of the last bastions of truly independent film-making - not to mention, one hilariously warped filmmaker) - the Toxic Avenger series, Poultrygeist, Sgt. Kabukiman, NYPD, etc.

Music: Just about anything, except rap and country. Lately, I've been really into contemporary Irish folk fusion. I've also been really into old-school punk lately - particularly on days when I'm feeling nostalgic about my youth.

Food: I cook. I make all kinds of great goodies. I've mastered Italian cooking and general American cooking (burgers, ribs, anything fried, etc.). I'm pretty good with Maryland style cooking, but still have room for improvement - I make a damn good crabcake, steamed crab, and ocean fries. I'm working on my UK (specifically Scottish) styles. I do make a pretty mean haggis.

I do pretty well with TexMex, though almost all of it has a discernible Maryland twist to it. I still make some pretty killer tacos, burritos, piled nachos, and Mexican rice. I'm also pretty good with Cajun, though, once again, it all has a definite Maryland twist to it. I make some killer gumbo, dirty rice, and jambalaya.

I also like Thai, Korean, Japanese, and Vietnamese, and, since they're all so inherently healthy, I'm working my butt off to learn these styles.

I'm also open to try anything that's put in front of me - how can I say I don't like it if I haven't tried it?
Six things I could never do without
Realistically: Books, good food, good films, good friends, internet, warped senses of humor (including my own), and time to myself. (Okay, that's seven... shoot me. I've never been good at following rules.)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
What I think about largely depends on what is going on in my life. Often it's work-related. If I'm in a relationship, it's more often about the woman I'm with. Most often, though, it's about completely bizarre shit like, what did this nutjob think he was going to accomplish when murdering all of these women (serial killers), or why the fuck are the people allowing this to happen (Constitutional rapings like the Patriot Act and subsequent legislation), thoughts about how to approach the off-grid living project, or such little nuances like, "Why the hell did I just watch 2 girls, 1 cup AGAIN?"

Yeah, my mind works in strange ways.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Realistically, I'm kind of a homebody with a wild imagination and a hell of an alternate personality that rarely comes out to play.

I'm on a diet, and working to lose 80+ pounds, and could really use a good exercise partner.

I really miss how thin/attractive I was back in my stagehand/roadie days, and have a hell of a drive to get myself back to that state of physical shape/prowess.
You should message me if
You're open minded, interested in the bizarre, and are willing to explore the world off the beaten path.

If you get the reference in my username, bonus points!

Hell, just send an email if anything above even remotely interested you.
