Outside of work, I design board games. I currently have four that are playable and a dozen that are in the works. I'd like to get them published and quit my day job, but it's a difficult world to break into.
I'm also pretty good at math and useless trivia.
And I recently invented a new way to whistle, which is handy since I couldn't whistle before.
Directors/Movies: David Lynch, Judd Apatow, Matt Stone & Trey Parker, Hiyao Miyazaki, Joss Whedon, Richard Ayaode, and Wes Anderson; Tommy Boy, Phil the Alien, Six-string Samurai, Role Models, Zombieland, Scott Pilgrim vs. the World, Equilibrium, Dark City, Dr. Horrible's Sing-along Blog, The Man from Earth, Synechdoche NY, Kick-Ass, and Seven Pounds. I really like movies.
TV: Arrested Development, Lost, It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia, The Office, Weeds, Breaking Bad, Cowboy Bebop, Firefly, Flight of the Conchords, Modern Family, The IT Crowd, Louie, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles(original series and current), Death Note, Darker Than Black, Speed Grapher, Bleach, Dragonball Z, Monster, Attack on Titan, and Titus. I also really like TV.
Music: Blind Melon, System of a Down, Serj Tankian, Weezer, Cake, The Mountain Goats, Flobots, Pearl Jam, Flight of the Conchords, Tenacious D, and The Lonely Island. Not a big music person, I'm more of a visual guy. Listening to music, I either ignore everything else around me, or ignore the music. I have trouble finding a middle ground.
Food: My favorite is almost any pasta dish with tomato sauce. However, I'm a terrible cook, so anything homemade is delicious to me. It's easier to name the things I don't like, including mushrooms, olives, peppers, pineapple, liver, cole slaw, and sauer kraut.
Seriously though, I'm a minimalist. I could lose everything and I'd be fine. As long as I still have my ideas.
Also jokes that are only funny because they are so bad. And jokes that are only funny to me. And un-jokes.
Also, the Fermi paradox.
Also, why women say they enjoy intelligent conversation and then don't respond when I ask them about the Fermi Paradox. That shit is intriguing.
Also, why do so many dudes have their gender set to woman these days? For the record, I'm not referring to transgender women, I'm not an asshole. I'm talking about bros who apparently think the "Sex" option is asking who they want to bang.
Also, feel free to just say hi. I'm a bit of an introvert when it comes to new people. I'm terrible at starting conversations, but excellent at making them meaningful.
