So my personality is available for rent on DVD.
I'm almost certain I'm better in person than "on paper'. Word of mouth on me as been good. I've been told by people who I had not yet met that they heard I was funny.
I really don't know how to even describe other people for one thing, and I'm not better at describing myself. As accurately as I could describe myself I'd still feel like I was trying to sell something that would be perceived subjectively. Even an accurate description would feel self serving, because I am serving my own interests and anyone reading it would have to know that. So why consider it trustworthy? And if it is to be dismissed then why write it at all?
My listed height is accurate though. I read a statistic that all men lie about their height in profiles and if anyone else has read that then they'd assume I did too and mentally cut me down. I'm average height for an adult male.
(Movies) Serenity, Dark City, Gattaca, Dirty Work, Office Space, About A Boy, 12 Monkeys, Changing Lanes, Mean Girls, The Cabin in the Woods, The Avengers, Much Ado About Nothing, The Hunger Games, Mad Max Fury Road, Logan.
(Music) I don't really listen to music. Probably because it always seemed so subjective. I can't even say why I'd like or dislike something so I've never been comfortable with music being what represents me to people. People are also more passionate about what they do and don't like and I didn't want to get into that. I don't like a lot anyway. I couldn't even fill the half gigabyte iPod shuffle model from 2005.
I did love the show Love Monkey though, which was about a guy who's an A&R rep for a music label. I'm a mystery.
So the only music I own is by comedians, like Bo Burnham and Garfunkel and Oats, and a DVD of Video Games Live which I saw twice in the same weekend.
(TV) Any show made by Joss Whedon, Buffy, (Buffy the Vampire Slayer, not the district attorney) Angel, Firefly, and Dollhouse, and most with Tim Miner, like Angel, Firefly, The Inside and Wonderfalls. I also like stuff from Bryan Fuller like Wonderfalls, Hannibaland Pushing Daisies. There's a lot of overlap on those shows because I've assumed people who make good stuff work with good people and I'm usually right. Continuing this over written list, Archer, Community, House, The Soup, Terminator: The Sarah Conner Chronicles, The 4400, Battlestar Galactica, Doctor Who, the various Star Treks, a couple of Gundam series. Veronica Mars, plus the movie which I helped fund and got two tee shirts for it. Parks and Recreation, Lost, Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, Rick and Morty, Don't Trust the B in apartment 23. I watch documentaries because learning is fun!
The three shows I'd say are of high enough quality that to not like them would be a personal failing rather than a flaw with the show are, Veronica Mars, Terminator: The Sarah Conner Chronicles, and Hannibal.
(Games) An invented category. Civilization, old Final Fantasy, Dragon Quest, Chrono Trigger/Cross, Mass Effect, XCOM. I also like Master of Orion, but each version manages to make some mistake that taints the game in some way. Crusader Kings 2, Super Mario Maker. The World Ends With You is probably my favorite single game.
(Food) I don't like a lot of food. I'm not trying to be difficult, I just don't like things and it's an inconvenient way to live but people act like it's a problem I'm creating for them. Griping done. I eat salsa almost every day. Other things I eat often are hamburgers, pizza, pasta, yogurt, waffles, chocolate chip cookies and muffins, and smoothies. I oft talk with the girls at the downtown smoothie place. I eat caffeinated chocolate in the morning because coffee it too bitter, and I don't want to be bitter.
These lists are not comprehensive, or necessarily up to date. I'm forgetful, even with my favorite things.
I don't think I was supposed to take this question so literally or analyze it to this degree. Oops.
The 'word of mouth' on me seems to be pretty good. People from work or formerly of school speak highly of me but I don't know what to do with that..
