My self-summary
I wanted to be an astronaut when I was a kid, but it seems like so much work now.

I'm pretty good at building forts out of books I don't have room for on my bookshelves.

I went to school for film and English, which seemed like a great idea at the time.

If I get overly enthusiastic about something in a conversation, I will apologize when my rant ends 10 minutes later.
What I’m doing with my life
Working in the illustrious comic book industry.

Avoiding the comment section.

Waiting patiently for records to arrive in the mail. (Ugh. Yeah, I know. But I'm not sure I get the cassette resurgence. Please explain if you are into that.)

Teaching myself musical instruments.
I’m really good at
Listing Replacements albums chronologically.

I'm also really good at sitting through bad movies and tv shows and then wondering why I have no time to do the things I want.
The first things people usually notice about me
"He sure owns a lot of black t-shirts."

Or that I listen to The Smiths a lot.

When you think about it, they are basically the same thing.

I spend a lot of time thinking about
Time travel. But mainly, how I feel that I would never actually want to time travel. I find the physics behind the theories absolutely fascinating, but I would definitely screw something up so intensely that the above mentioned physics would become null and void and, therefore, any chance of returning and fixing the mistakes I've made would be eliminated. And then everyone would be mad because I just ruined time travel.

I'm not sure if destroying the theory of relativity and time travel is either a case of monster ego or extremely low self-esteem.
On a typical Friday night I am
You know, probably the usual thing most people do these days. I'm either hanging out with some friends or just recovering from the work week and trying to find something terrible to watch.

The advantage to being close to the city again is being able to see way more bands when they come to town. I used to go to shows multiple times a week, but that slowed down, and now I am looking to go see as many as possible. That's not isolated to Fridays, but I think it is in the spirit of the question. And if it isn't, then I misread the subtext.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I used to be in a ska band.
You should message me if
You want to discuss the evolution of pop punk, like watching movies, want to recommend some books, go to a museum, have a conversation about Anthony Bourdain that involves a lot of high fiving each other, see some live comedy, want to check out some bands, you play an instrument and want to write some songs with me.

Or anything adjacent.
The two of us
