Disclaimer: I am weird. As you read on you'll say, "Wow, this guy is a huge geek..." and you'll be right. Most people can't handle it, but people who get to know me usually find me quite charming believe it or not.
Once you get past those, my shameless honesty.
EDIT Oct 2013: I now have vastly improved fashion sense approaching that of an average human! So perhaps being seen with me will be less embarrassing.
I really just love great stories. Reading them, writing them, watching them, hearing them, telling them, retelling them.
Shows in no particular order:
Star Wars & Star Trek (can never decide which...) Farscape. Lost. Firefly. For some reason I always find myself watching Law & Order and its derivatives. Walking Dead (Comic & Show). Anime; Though I find I've gotten really picky about it as I've grown up. Attack on Titan recently. SUPER loved Black Lagoon. Guren Lagan. I love cartoons. Does that make me immature? DC Animated Universe (from Batman: the Animated Series to Young Justice) Avatar: The Last Airbender probably my all time favorite. Legend of Korra started real real good but now the jury is out. The new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles CGI series is REALLY good! (he said with surprise). Adventure Time & Regular Show. WWE Wrestling (it's as dumb as it looks but a lot of a fun to watch.)
Fight Club changed my life. (But may not be for everyone)
The 5th Element. Lethal Weapon 4. Demolition Man. Miazaki films. Pixar films. Jacky Chan films. The Marx Brothers films. Old silent films, but only the important ones like Metropolis and Nosferatu.
I have EXTREMELY eclectic musical taste (you'll see what I mean if you come to my store and listen to the playlist for an hour.) My favorite bands right now are Lostprophets, Florence + the Machine, and Rise Against.
I feel listing my favorite things doesn't really tell enough about me. However, one thing everybody always tells me is that the way I talk is very unique. So instead of things I couldn't do without, I'm going to list my top 6 things you will have to put up with hearing if you hang out with me:
Blake's Top 6 Phrases
6) "I believe you."
5) [Immediately after I inform someone of a decision I have made] "...no matter how bad an idea it is."
4) "I like to make a tradition of not doing that."
3) "I eat a bowl full of [subject of conversation] for breakfast."
2) [When something good is likely to happen] "We're in danger of [that good thing]."
1) Yeahokay (one word)
I'm just going to use this section to broadcast a couple messages to anybody who reads my profile:
I respond to all messages and would appreciate the same consideration, even if only to say "not interested." Doing so is to deliberately put yourself in a socially awkward situation just to make a stranger feel slightly better, so I pledge to never make it more awkward by arguing or pestering with subsequent replies. "No means no"
Ladies, message men! I respect women who have the guts to message a man cold on the web. Takes a healthy disrespect for sexist cultural conventions.
Fill out those Details and answer more match questions! Add explainations to your answers! You're on here to meet people, no sense hiding who you are. Much better to turn away 9 out of 10 where the 10th is attracted to your actual qualities than to attract 9 out of 10 and let them turn on you the hard way.
I don't consider going on one date to be a big deal. Somehow it seems like or society has morphed the concept of a date into some kind of a implicit relationship. We're not "dating" until it's something we do regularly.
North Carolinian ladies, you're lovely and I appreciate the compliments, but it's just a tad too far for me to consider dating. Apparently I should consider moving down their though...
