I like live music, novel events, and showing up at places where black denim jackets are de rigeur, despite owning none myself. I've been to book signings by Pratchett, Rothfuss, and Chris Hadfield. In the right company, I can haunt a basement, dance at Transmission, third your Thursdays, and sing in the shower (although I'll spare you the singing). I am a champion bouncy ball jouster.
I'm passionate about science, social justice, and public health.
If you want ridiculous trivia or abstract concepts oversimplified into analogy, I'm your man. I'm a badass of free association.
Movies: SLC Punk, The Dark Knight, Shawshank Redemption, Good Will Hunting, Dogma, Dodgeball, Shoot 'Em Up, Shaun of the Dead, Monty Python, Iron Man, and loads of campy film you'll either love or judge me for.
TV Shows: House, Breaking Bad, GoT, House of Cards, Misfits, The IT Crowd, Firefly, Cowboy Bebop, QI...Stephen Fry is the man.
I'm a musical dabbler, so in no particular order:
Rush, The Pillows, Nine Inch Nails, Tool, Liz Phair, Prodigy, Rasputina, Gorillaz, Daft Punk, Jonathan Coulton, Clutch, Against Me!, Smashing Pumpkins (Billy Corgan can piss off, though), Flogging Molly, Cake, Soul Coughing, Harvey Danger, Les Claypool, dan le sac Vs Scroobius Pip, Gold Panda, Dillinger Escape Plan, Ennio Morricone, Yoko Kanno, Spoon, Amanda Fucking Palmer, Minus the Bear, TV on the Radio, The World/Inferno Friendship Society, Joy Division
Minnesota chapter: Hardcore Crayons, Doomtree (P.O.S., Dessa, Sims, Mike Mictlan, Paper Tiger), Building Better Bombs, The Friendly Beers, Brute Heart, Polica, Marijuana Deathsquad, The Soviettes, Awesome Snakes, Lake Street Dive (The name and the guitarist is ours; I say that counts), Jeremy Messersmith, Husker Du, The Replacements
I love szechuan, and spice, and everything nice, but getting in shape means my pizza delivery guy is left wondering if it's something he did.
I could use some gym/biking/skating/concert buddies, too.
9/14/16 specific: you wish you were rocking out at Riot Fest this weekend too, or you are going and are willing to tell me all about it afterward.
