My self-summary
Another carbon-based life-form with a squishy brain computer who is different from you only in superficial ways that everyone pretends are much more meaningful than they really are just to reinforce our sense of supposed uniqueness as a defense against becoming aware that we are all equally unimportant and fleeting in the face of an apathetic cosmos. Also, I like sushi.
What I’m doing with my life
Wasting time marathoning superhero shows on netflix and staying up all night playing videogames as a vicarious solution until the inevitable machine uprising.
I’m really good at
Utilizing inflection and body language to use "mao" as an effective response to many varied situations in life. =^_^=
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Interests can tell a lot about a person, so this is the one part of my profile that I'll write at length. Feel free to skim or skip, you impatient bastards.

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: hard rock, metal, classic rock, oldies, nightcore/EDM/electro, EBM/industrial, country/folk, hip-hop, classical/choral/opera, pop from across the decades and around the world. 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 have a drink per day for health reasons, but I don't binge. Although I can appreciate a fine glass 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, Witcher), 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) contemplation, meditation, copulation, cogitation
3) barefoot girls sporting firearms and/or strap-ons
4) barbells and a cage
5) the severed head of a vanquished foe used as a goblet to toast victory
6) a few loyal dogs and friends
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Which meta-narrative best explains our collective experiences in a way that neither denies reality nor insults my intelligence, yet still provides analgesia for the weltschmerz of modern life. And bad puns. Always bad puns.
On a typical Friday night I am
Playing games, researching some random topic, questioning the nature of reality and the reliability of human perception, ranting about the state of the world, or watching netflix until it asks "are you still there?"
You should message me if
Want a tipsy game night? Someone with whom to practice basic self-defense for the coming zombie apocalypse? To tell me some awesomely bad jokes? Do you hate life and want to die and want to show me exactly why and how with illustrations made in MS Paint?
