My self-summary
I'm TJ, and when I'm not playing video games and listening to punk rock, I'm reading poems or going on adventures in the city. If you enjoy doing any or all of these things, we're going to get along fine.
I moved to Chicago not long ago - most of my good friends are still in the suburbs, so I'd definitely appreciate meeting new people who would want to go play trivia at bars or go to concerts or whatever else fun people do.
What I’m doing with my life
I’m really good at
Video Games.
Making bad jokes.
Embarrassing myself.
Being a nerd.
The first things people usually notice about me
Probably my hair. I like making sure it doesn't look like shit.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: I read anything from Greek tragedy to postmodern novels. Here are some favorites - John Milton, William Blake, Percy Shelley, Shakespeare (of course), Thomas Pynchon, Paul Auster, Cormac McCarthy, Yukio Mishima, Douglas Coupland, Aeschylus - reading is fun.

Movies: I'm kind of a movie buff. Reservoir Dogs, in my opinion, is the best Quentin Tarantino movie. Let's watch it.

TV: My favorite drama is probably The West Wing, and my favorite sitcom is, without question, Arrested Development. It ain't easy bein' white, IT AIN'T EASY BEIN' BROWN! Anyway. Here are a few others: Freaks and Geeks, Firefly, Undeclared, 30 Rock, Space Ghost Coast To Coast, Family Guy (early seasons only), Breaking Bad, House of Cards, Sports Night, Twin Peaks. Have you seen The Neighbors? Easily the best TV show of the 21st Century (sarcasm).

Music: Metal is my favorite kind of music by far, especially European metal. But I was raised on classic rock and punk. I also have a soft spot in my heart for grunge and alternative, and hell, even dance music. Listing my favorite bands would be too tedious

Video games - RPGs are the best. If you have a PSN account and want to add me, just ask.
The six things I could never do without
1: My iPod
2: My books
3: Family/Friends
4: My hair
5: My sense of humor
6: Chairs
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Nerdy shit. Like:
Why do I keep buying 2D fighting games if I suck at them?
What is justice?
How the fuck can someone write as well as John Milton?
Why did I just watch an entire season of Alf in one sitting?
Why was I not born a squid?
On a typical Friday night I am
Saving the world. Or playing Twilight Princess. But really, they're the same thing.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
One time I ran across the street and I never looked.
You should message me if
Basically, if you're cool and you think we'll get along.
