My self-summary
Do I contradict myself?
Very well, I contradict myself.
I am large; I contain multitudes.
-Walt Whitman

In my case, those multitudes include a mad scientist, a starving artist, a socialist and a libertarian.

Given the chance, I'm voting for Bernie Sanders (I voted for him in the first primary I have ever voted in).

I lean towards monogamish and would love to find someone that was my 'number one.'

I don't want kids.

People usually think I'm an extrovert but I'd say I'm a socially adept introvert.

I don't believe in god, ghosts, astrology, etc. I believe in logic, reason and the scientific method.
What I’m doing with my life
A few years back I started working in internet marketing and web design, that keeps me busy and I like that the work is challenging, creative, analytical and varied.

I've recently realized I need more activities and hobbies, I not very good at planning but I'm a good sport, open to suggestions.

I have a strong interest in human rights (equality, justice, etc.) so I am always interested in related pursuits; once I have my work situation settled and have more free time I plan to write about it, maybe volunteer, and just get involved however possible in trying to make the world a better place.
I’m really good at
I am visual so I am good at art, photography, hopefully web design.

I am an excellent swimmer.

I am pretty good at Spades, Euchre, Trivial Pursuit, Taboo, and laughing at things in movies that no one else finds funny...

Over-analyzing things, skiing and snowboarding, starting campfires.
The first things people usually notice about me
I'm not sure, maybe that I seem to have some sort of accent that they can't quite place (I moved around a lot as a kid).
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
The artist in me has crafted this profile to be—hopefully—intriguing and to represent my desire for new and wide experiences.

That said, the last book I read for pleasure was a year ago; I just don't have time.

I love movie nights on the couch with a lover. So if we have compatible taste in TV and movies, it will probably go along way towards long-term compatibility.

I like things that make me think, wonder, feel like I'm not alone/crazy, and/or see things in a new light:
Some books I enjoyed:
"Life As We Do Not Know It" (non-fiction about life: what it is, what it needs, where else it might exist in the solar system)
"A Supposedly Fun Thing I'll Never Do Again" (essays by David Foster Wallace).
I read more non-fiction than fiction; I enjoyed Freakonomics and Sperm Wars immensely.
My favorite author might be J.D. Salinger…(or Hemingway…or Burroughs).

As for movies, you can't really go wrong with Quentin Tarantino, also a big fan of David Fincher, David Lynch, Stanley Kubrick.

I don't care much for TV but when I have the remote rest assured I'll at least see what's on Discovery, Nat. Geo, and History. I enjoy Seinfeld and Robot Chicken whenever possible.

Contemporary stuff you've probably heard of?
The Black Keys, The White Stripes, Beck, DangerMouse/Gnarls Barkely, Sublime…and, of course, all the usual smacked-out greats.
Stuff most haven't heard of:
I like everything cEVIN kEY has ever done.
"Bad Music for Bad People."
Immortal Technique.

As for food, I am an omnivore but logically, philosophically, and morally would like to move closer to vegetarian.
Italian, Mexican, sushi, (the occasional) steak, pizza, and chocolate and more.

I don't currently act on it but I have a strong interest in sustainable and cruelty-free food production including organic, local, and self-produced foods.
The six things I could never do without
[*See Maslow's Hierarchy of Needs ]

I'm not very materialistic but I really value my friends and the Internet is a good way to keep in touch...letters work too but letter-writing is a dying art.

It's important to me to have things I like (living in a decent part of town, clothes and shoes that I feel fit my personality, etc.) but I'm not much of one for brands.

I could never do without some fun and passion in my life.

And I'd be heart-broken if I ended up without a beautiful woman who'd wear corsets, garters or other lingerie de temps en temps.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Everything...I think more about how things should be than how they are, if that tells you anything.

Nature vs. nurture.

Evolutionary Biology.

Whether I might be happier if I just moved to some liberal, socialist, European country and never came back.

How to best get the things I want (and what those 'things' are).

When living in another state I had another profile, but there are inconsistencies between the two that I find surprising like 'genius' vs. 'advanced' on the commonly confused vocabulary test and other things that shouldn't be mood dependent. I find that pretty interesting.
On a typical Friday night I am
"The same thing we do every night Pinky: try to take over the world."
You should message me if
Your profile is reasonably accurate.
You're ht/wt proportionate. You made it this far.

You struggled with the profile questions that ask if you are 'looking for sex or love.' Just to clarify, it'd be really cool if I could find both.

I view people holistically so if something on my profile excludes you but we are otherwise a good match I won't rule you out.

Nothing ventured, nothing gained.
