My self-summary
Sentient meatpuppet with a penchant for games, weight lifting, dad jokes, geeky things, and dogs.
What I’m doing with my life
Researching random things by link-hopping, physically training, playing games, repairing computers and random household problems, taking care of two beefhounds, and hanging out with my partner and friends whenever our free time lines up with each other, which is less than I'd like due to everyone having to adult these days.
I’m really good at
Using inflection and body language to use "mao" as an effective response to many varied situations in life.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I feel that interests can tell a lot about a person.

Books: nonfiction on bizarre topics most avoid like the plague. No, seriously, I have a miniature library of all kinds of obscure topics. Each shelf is another field of study.

Movies: the usual for a late 80s and early 90s kid, especially dystopian and scifi. Matrix, Fight Club, Equilibrium, V, Terminator, Short Circuit, Office Space, Rules of Attraction, Party Monster, Big Lebowski, Ghost Busters, Shaun of the Dead, Star Wars, Pulp Fiction, The Mask, plus some newer stuff: Rise of the Guardians and Inside Out (yes, I know they're kids' movies, but all the feels, man), Invention of Lying, Cabin in the Woods, most any superhero/comic book adaptation.

Shows: again, most any superhero/comic book adaptation and most in-depth action-dramas: Flash, Daredevil, Arrow, Longmire, Burn Notice, Justified, SoA (honestly, only up until mid-series, then I thought it lost its way, which is the same way I feel about Dexter), Hell on Wheels, Star Trek: TNG. Also quirky/weird shows: P&T Bullshit, Parks & Rec, Archer, Bob's Burgers, Always Sunny (one of my all time favorites!), Star Trek ToS, Mr. Pickles, Rick and Morty, Venture Bros, South Park. Anything but broadcast primetime, gameshows, soaps, and *gags* "reality" TV.

Music: the whole spectrum, but very specific things from each genre: club/EDM, hipster/indie/folk, hard rock, numetal, metalcore, classic rock, rockabilly, oldies, darkwave/EBM/industrial, country, hip-hop, classical/choral/opera/world, techno/electro/dubstep/trance, pop from across the decades. Varies by the day, mood, and weather.

Food: I'm eating healthier now that I'm entering my third decade of life. I LOVE sushi and pretty much any spicy or exotic dish. I also enjoy simple coffee (none of that $7 a cup blueberry shit grown in diamond crystal soil in the Andes type of stuff). I imbibe a drink per day for health reasons, but I don't binge. Although I can appreciate a fine drink of any liquor, my standard daily rotation is primarily made up of darker ones: whiskey and scotch, with an occasional aged rum or brandy.

Games: (my own edition): in-depth open-world games (Skyrim, Fallout, Farcry), action-RPGs (Diablo, Mass Effect, Dragon Age), story-driven FPS games (CoD, Battlefield), sandbox (Infamous, GTA, Sleeping Dogs, Saints Row), action-adventure (Assassin's Creed, Tomb Raider), and games I can play with groups of friends (Rock Band).

I'm also down for any tabletop games, if I can find players who will learn and actually keep with it. I played MtG for years, but I haven't bought new cards in a decade. But, if you want to play a legacy game, I have a ton of older cards to work with.
The six things I could never do without
1) games of any kind
2) fans (even in winter)
3) barefoot girls sporting firearms
4) barbells
5) the severed head of a vanquished foe used as a goblet to toast victory
6) dogs
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Priorities: I don't care how unique, powerful, attractive, smart, wealthy, effective, popular, or fun you are. Nor even how NICE you are. Plenty of "nice" people are terrible human beings who speak flowery words while stabbing others in the back for personal gain. Nice is superficial. "Nice" people often compromise their ethics to appease others, too. And a strong ethical compass is the true measure of a person's worth, and only consistant ACTIONS prove ethics. Generosity, responsibility, industriousness, loyalty, honesty, autonomy, refraining from aggression, violence, and theft, standing up for liberties and rights, and protecting the innocent: those are the traits that matter to me. The rest are just decorations, and sprinkles can be put on dog shit just as easily as they can be dropped on a cake.
On a typical Friday night I am
Sitting on my porch, ranting about the state of the world.

What's wrong with the kids these days? People now brag about things that they should be ashamed of. If you get wasted and vomit on someone's couch at a party, you should not find it funny, but, rather, feel embarrassed about it and apologize for it the next day. You should not BRAG about being a bitch, slut, dick, or jackass. You should admit those are character flaws and work on them. Yelling profanities at strangers and trying to fight people randomly should not be taken as proof of "being a badass," but, rather, of having anger issues. Breaking mundane laws for the hell of it doesn't prove you are a "rebel," but just that you are a petty child throwing a tantrum. And disrespecting others' property, rights, and boundaries, including that belonging to the public or companies, is just proof that you were raised wrong. *Shakes cane.* Now get off my damn lawn!
You should message me if
Want a game night? Someone with whom to lift weights or practice basic self-defense? Tell me some awesomely bad jokes? Just plain bored? Discuss how the kids these days have no upbringing? Tell me why I'm wrong in some way, especially over something pedantic and pointless?
