Guess I should answer in more than one word though. You know the show 'Freaks and Geeks'? (Which was cancelled after one season since no one watched it), I'm pretty much what the guys in the geeks part would grow up to become. Which, by the way, is far better than being the guys from Big Bang Theory. Those guys are kinda jerks.
Some other facts:
I'm an atheist (but I prefer other terms to describe my beliefs).
I love cats and dogs (but I'm not a vegetarian).
I'm a bleeding-heart, left-wing liberal (but my political activism is summed up in voting and watching Jon Oliver).
I like an urban environment more than a rural one (but sometimes when I remember the visits with my grandparents in the kibbutz I entertain the thought of living in such a place).
I Prefer the winter to the summer (no buts here, I really do prefer the winter to the summer).
Outside of work, the standard stuff. Meeting friends, reading stuff, watching stuff, playing stuff.
Did some writing, but not lately. Keep thinking about doing some more, but never getting around to it.
Something I'm not good at, though, is writing what I'm good at, so let's move on to another section.
My taste in movies is not too high-brow. I like silly popcorn movies, and of course the classics that everyone my age should love, if they have a soul: The Princess Bride, Ghostbusters, Die Hard, Groundhog's Day, Back to the Future etc.
I did go to film school, so there is some "better" stuff I like too, like Hitchcock.
Some things I like to listen to, in no particular order:
Aimee Mann, Dire Straits, REM, TV on the Radio, Mumford and Sons, The National, Belle and Sebastian, Okkervil River, Bon Iver, Leonard Cohen, Florence + the Machine, Band of Horses, Explosions in the Sky, Wilco, Talking Heads, Suzanne Vega.
I could go for thai, or sushi.
Mostly series. I don't actually have a TV, so I download stuff.
Current favorites include: Game of Thrones, , Elementary, Doctor Who, Fargo.
Some hall of famers:
The Wire, Deadwood, various Joss Whedon shows, Breaking Bad, Fringe, Terriers, The West Wing, Freaks and Geeks, Parks and Recreation, Arrested Development.
I read mostly genre fiction. Sci-fi, fantasy some horror and I would pick up most new Stephen King novels. I try to have at least one book to read at all times, but I can take my time reading it.
And now, this:
Stories. Whether from TV, books, video games or movies. A way to get stories is something I can't do without.
By the way, I notice I didn't mention theater. Historically I haven't been much of a theater goer, but I'm open to the possibility.
Love. Or the possibility for love. Or the hope for it.
Really, without it, there's very little point for the rest.
This just became a little serious, so in place of a sixth item, here's a funny song:
Replaying conversations in my head to make them better than they actually were.
And since I don't really have anything to put in this section, I decided I will use it to type random things that don't really fall into the other categories.
You should totally feel free to skip this part.
As I said in the sidebar there, I want kids. Mostly, it's because I genuinely think I will be a good father, and, well, the usual reasons people want to have kids.
But, I have to admit, there's a small part of me that wants kids because I want to see what happens if I can avoid the annoying kids oriented music that everyone is trying to sell parents, and instead just play the music I like (see above for details) around the kids from the time they get home.
In other words, I want to see if I can engineer a hipster. That would be an interesting experiment. Don't you think?
(I hope it goes without saying, but I'm not actually serious about this)
I didn't hate the ending of Lost, though I really hated the ending of How I Met Your Mother.
I've been thinking about getting a cat. I haven't yet, for all sorts of good or at least semi-good reasons, but it's a thought that comes up every once in a while.
I do have to admit that one not so good reason I didn't get a cat yet is that I learned a while ago that only 25% of ginger cats are female, and I have the perfect name for a cat, but it only really works for a female ginger.
More random musings will come eventually. Probably.
