My self-summary
I am all kinds of things that logically seem to disagree.

I believe that every time someone says they're "laid back" or "easy going" that they secretly have an uncontrollable fear of spiders, or feet, or tiny white kittens.

I think a lot about the duality of life - that traits are inexplicably tied to their diametric opposites. Supersymmetry and all that.

For instance: I'm n3rdy and love Star Trek etc. but I'm sometimes referred to as "cool"?

I'm a philosopher. I consume information voraciously, and never stop moving during the day. But equally love a weekend indoors with whatever new Netflix show just came out.

The truth is... language (especially written language) is a poor conveyor of the nature of a thing. There's just nothing to substitute real human interaction when it comes to communicating. I guess that's why we're all here...?
What I’m doing with my life
I’m really good at
Lots of things! Basically anything I set my mind to...

Things like:

Geometry Wars
Remembering funny quotes
Forgetting those quotes and trying without success to retrieve them
Critiquing HBO shows
Losing things
Logic puzzles
Making lists
Crossing things off lists
Making people laugh
Knowing random trivia
And Snood. I'm a world champion at Snood.
The first things people usually notice about me
I'm outgoing and funny, and I try to always have something interesting to say. If we'd met in person, you'd never guess that I'm actually rather shy.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: I like high fiction mostly, with the occasional political critique like a Michael Lewis. Science fiction of course - Dune, etc. but generally literature with a message. I just finished Neverwhere because somehow I skipped Neil Gaiman entirely (except for Sandman, of course). Now I get to devour his entire works though, so I guess it worked out ok!

Movies: I watch a lot of movies. I can talk about them for days. Although I'd have to say my favorite of all time is The Princess Bride, I'm well versed in the heights of the medium: Lynch, Polanski, Kubrick, and modern greatness: Aronofsky, Jonze, Whedon.

T.V.: I can also binge watch with the best of them. The obvious ones like Breaking Bad and True Detective, and the hidden gems like Orphan Black and Rick & Morty. Buffy, however, will always have a special place in my heart.

Music: I was classically trained in piano and voice for more than a decade, so I am all over the place when it comes to music. Andrew Bird, Jack White, Rachmaninoff, Sleigh Bells, Pretty Lights, Minus the Bear, YACHT, The Mountain Goats, Tipper, Caravan Palace, Kendrick Lamar; lots of stuff. Anything that's good.

Food: The spicier, the better.
The six things I could never do without
Teh Int4rwebs
My PS4
Good Conversation
A Challenge
Those I Love

I know that's only 5 things, but I think that about covers the necessities...

(o rite, sex.)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
I hate to be trite, but I spend a lot of time thinking about everything! I read the news. I read about science, economics, finance, technology, politics... I try to take in as much information as I can. I love to talk to people and try to make sense of their views when we disagree. I check my assumptions regularly, and am eager to admit when I've been wrong, because it means I've learned something that I didn't know before.

I mean, aren't we all just trying to make sense of this whirling, seemingly-impossibly complex grouping of atoms/probabilities/waves/strings(?)/something-else-entirely/all-of-these-at-once?

I am, but I can't claim to have gotten very far.
On a typical Friday night I am
Probably watching Netflix. Saturday nights, however, are a different story...

I try to stay relatively on top of NYC events. Concerts, new restaurants and bar openings, art shows, film screenings, parties, etc. I'm spending a lot of time recently in my new Brooklyn neighborhood and the results have been overwhelmingly positive so far! (There's a bar... with a TARDIS in it. It's even bigger on the inside.)

Or, alternatively, I might be at home watching Amazon Instant when the Netflix queue runs cold. Life is meant for us to enjoy it, I think, and to absorb as many positive experiences from it while we can. But balance, I've found, truly is the key to a happy time here. Everything in moderation... especially moderation itself.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Sometimes... when I'm home by myself... I order sushi from Seamless... and eat it with a fork.
You should message me if
You're quirky weird and fun and you love cartoons and the internet but you also *HAVE SOCIAL SKILLS* and are looking for a meaningful connection with an equal human being in this fucked up, crazy world.

You noticed that in the above sentence I failed to use an Oxford comma. It irks you privately, but you accept and admire my stylistic choice.

You kind of think this cultural obsession with the Oxford comma is just about as played out as the old Chuck Norris meme, but you're willing to laugh at it with me, at least this one last time.

You're really, really smart and like talking about things that normal people don't like talking about for fear of stepping on someone's toes.

You're not looking for someone to watch animal porn with you and your girlfriend who's cool with it.
