My self-summary
Music maniac with a side of nerd, sprinkled with a weird mix of introversion/extroversion depending on mood, moon phase and radiation levels. Probably?

According to the MBTI, I'm an ENFP-T. Not a 100% match - naturally, I'm a unique and very special snowflake - but still surprisingly accurate overall.

Also, looking at all the gender options offered here nowadays, I feel somewhat inferior. I'm neither a gender fluid Two-Spirit nor a Sweet Transvestite from Transsexual Transylvania - I regret to inform you that I'm just a straight white guy.

I'm here because I'm looking for something with long-term potential. I'm also leaving "Looking for new friends" active because I don't want to discard a nice message just because it came from across the globe :).
What I’m doing with my life
Graduated from University - Have been working at my current job for ~4 years now: Sysadmin, Linux, Data Security, Networking. There are a lot of responsibilities and it can get damn challenging at times - but that's exactly what I'm looking for in a job.

I spend most of my free time doing all the music stuff. Listening, playing, composing, discovering, rehearsing, recording.
I’m really good at
• Humor. The whole spectrum: Sarcasm, cynicism, puns, complete nonsense, situational. I love making others laugh and will attempt to do so in every-day life and even (or especially) in more serious and / or business situations, because being a little silly from time to time makes everything much more bearable or even enjoyable.

• Music. Guitar, Bass, Keyboard/Piano, Vocals. I did all kinds of music stuff in the past (Choir, Musicals, (Big)Bands...) and I'm currently active in 2 bands. I haven't been part of any well-known projects and I'm not having illusions of grandeur and becoming a rock star, but I will continue to put a considerable amount of my free time into making music, because potatoes gonna potate.

I also excel at overthinking all the things, trusting and opening up to the wrong people and aspiring to weird ideals that are both unachievable and in no way beneficial for my mental health. Yay!
The first things people usually notice about me
My built-in beacon functionality.

Ever go out with friends, lose track of them for a few seconds and then can't find anyone because it's super crowded? It doesn't have to be this way: Just take me along - the blond hair and increased height ensure immediate detectability in almost all lighting conditions and crowd compositions.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Music

Metal. Rock. Pop. Electro. Progressive and complex structures? Great! More straight forward songs with all the melodies? Also great! Both? Greatest. In other words: I don't care much about genres - if it's good, it's good. A selection of current favorites: BOY, Animals As Leaders, I The Mighty, Jinjer, CHVRCHES, Involvers, Wolf Alice.

All-Time favourites include dredg, Nine Inch Nails, Coheed And Cambria, Katatonia, Opeth, Paradise Lost, The Birthday Massacre.

Movies / TV Shows / Series

More into series than movies because I like epic plot arcs and interesting character development, which is mostly very difficult to condense down to movie length. But to name a few anyway: Basically all Christopher Nolan movies (The Prestige!), Harry Potter Part 3+. Aditionally I'll probably enjoy all the Post Apocalyptic, Steampunk/Cyberpunk and Dystopia-themed stuff.

All-time favorite show: Veronica Mars. Also good: Buffy, Game of Thrones (Yes, House Targaryen, that should not come as a surprise :D), Stargate, Deep Space Nine, Jessica Jones, New Girl, Rick and Morty. If some of the usual suspects seem to be missing here: Laugh tracks are not for me.

YouTube

Because why not, here's a random selection of YouTube folk I fancy: Rob Scallon, Anna Akana, You Suck At Cooking, Savannah Brown, Rob Chapman, Dodger...

Anime

Ergo Proxy, Last Exile, Serial Experiments Lain, Ghost In The Shell, Claymore, Noein, Darker Than Black. I haven't really watched a lot of Anime recently so I'm not really up to date anymore - feel free to bombard me with suggestions!

Webcomics

xkcd, Poorly Drawn Lines, Loading Artist, Hejibits, nichtlustig, Sarah's Scribbles, Pepper & Carrot, Fail by Error...

Art

I'm hilariously untalented when it comes to painting / drawing and you probably won't run into me at the nearest art exhibition, but surreal paintings still seriously tickle my fancy; for example Geiger, Dalí and especially Beksiński.

Games

Everything The Elder Scrolls, Fallout, The Longest Journey, Dragon Age, Mass Effect, Bioshock, Portal, Dishonored. Recent favorites include Transistor, Life Is Strange, The Talos Principle, The Swapper, FEZ, Dust, Dex. Really looking forward to playing Deus Ex: Mankind Divided.

Food

Not a big fan of most seafoods and "high caliber meat" like steaks. Other than that pretty much anything. I started to pick up cooking some time ago and can actually produce a few edible dishes by now.
The six things I could never do without
• Music
• Coffee / Tea
• Escapism
• Cheddar
Moist towelettes
• Colorful blinking gadgets
• Disobedience
I spend a lot of time thinking about
a lot, ranging from mind-boggling sciency stuff that makes my head explode to things like contemplating how Iggy Azelea could ever become a thing ô_Ô.

Also, because current: Brexit. I know that the EU isn't the solution to everything and the bureaucracy is too damn high at times, but is that enough reason to endanger everything Europe has worked for over the past couple of decades? Did the majority of Brits seriously believe the bullshit those twats Farage and Johnson were proclaiming? Oh well. Ultimately it's just the first big bang in the wake of rising nationalism all over the world. I fear there'll be a lot more bangs before people start to remember why we started this EU thing in the first place :(.
On a typical Friday night I am
GETTING SCHWIFTY IN THE CLUB OBVS

Not convinced? Okay, okay... Probably rehearsal, sometimes actually combined with doing the going out thing afterwards, but mostly it's just video games, watching series and doing internet stuff.
You should message me if
... you manage to sit through an entire Kyary Pamyu Pamyu video without vomiting rainbows.

I'm looking forward to receiving all kinds of messages! I can't see likes, so please don't hesitate to throw a few words at me as well :). Englisch oder Deutsch, vollkommen egal - It's all the same to the Many-Faced God.

You have arrived at the bottom of my profile. Thanks for visiting and actually reading some of the word things I put on here; please accept this bad pun as a parting gift: http://i.imgur.com/O9kydha.gif
