My self-summary
Yo! My name's Jared. I like music, and games, and books. I have a lot of creative ventures, and I get on well with creative people. I keep an open mind, though I'm prone to getting lost inside it.

Do you want to hang out with me on the internet while I play guitar? Hell yeah you do! Hit me up, I stream most evenings:
What I’m doing with my life
I'm in that slightly ambiguous phase in life after you're done school and are suddenly forced to realize your destiny. I'm getting on with it slower than other people, but it's coming along lately.

I play a lot of music. My best instrument is percussion, but lately I'm spending a lot of time playing guitar and singing on Twitch. I've been in a bunch of bands, played in a load of shows, and recorded and produced a lot of original music.

I dabble in all kinds of other creative ventures, including writing, photography, and film.

But mostly, I play video games. I'm a DotA fiend foremost, but I dig any good game. RPGs and beat 'em ups are my favourites. And music games, naturally!

Here's a bunch of guitar covers:

Or you can listen to some of my original music, if you like:
I’m really good at
Drum solos, cleaning house in poker, fixing your computer, racing cars, imagining big.

I always win at board games. My friends like to team up on me to keep me in check.
The first things people usually notice about me
People say nice things about my voice, and supposedly my jawline and eyebrows are pretty distinctive.

I hear a lot about how lanky and young-looking I am, too. Yeah, I know, I'm a living anime protagonist.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
As far as music goes, I enjoy a large variety of stuff. Most of what I listen to is rock, metal, and electronic, but I also dig a lot of post-rock, prog, indie, funk, and jazz, and a little of almost everything else.

Six things I could never do without
Night. Music. Technology. Language. Vision. Freedom.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Existence as order and chaos, artificial intelligence, superorganisms and superconsciousness, matter evolution, how the universe is a god putting itself back together in slow motion, behavior, melodies and rhythms, art, the psychology of change, systems of creation, characters I'd like to write about, how to extend my deadlines, the path the world is walking and what it'll be like in the future, morality, information existing as an abstract entity overlaying humanity, freedom, mechanical comprehension of semantics and connotation.

Y'know... stuff.
On a typical Friday night I am
Gallivanting, no doubt!
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
One time, I had sex in a shower stall in residence. The bathrooms were communal for each floor - this was in the women's. Post-coitus, we clean up and get ready to evacuate the scene of the crime. But just as I turn off the water, two girls come in together wrapped in towels. I hush up and let the one who actually belongs in the bathroom do the talking.

But there's only two shower stalls. And so, I realize: I cannot exit this bathroom unseen.

So with a fresh nothing-to-lose attitude, I casually walked out of the stall and gave a salutatory "'sup?", to which they responded by making really loud screeching noises and sprinting out of the bathroom like a bad sitcom. Luckily, they took it in good humor, but I didn't hear the end of it from my floormates for a while.

That was an arbitrary example, but the moral of the story is that I'm mostly an open book.

As long as we're on the subject, I guess I should talk a little about "looking for: casual sex" (admit it, you totally noticed):

Sex is not something I actively seek or require for fulfillment. I take it as it comes, and I let it unfold at a natural pace. I'm open to no-strings when it feels right, with a person I'm comfortable with. I'm a bit of a flirt by nature, but don't let that fool you - I'm not easy.

I also have a non-platonic crush on Neil Patrick Harris.

Okay, that's enough. Need to leave some mystery.
You should message me if
I like passionate people with strong opinions, freethinkers, creators. I admire empathy, sticking to your principles, always trying to better yourself. If any of this sounds like you, I'm interested in what you have to say.

If you play an instrument and want to jam. I love to jam.
The two of us
