My self-summary
According to the MBTI, I'm an ENFP-T. Not a 100% match - naturally, I'm a very special snowflake and totally not like all the other guys - but still surprisingly accurate overall. Apparently I get along exceptionally well with INFJs (both in theory and reality). Please take this information with a bunch of pepper, since the MBTI doesn't exactly hold up to scientific scrutiny ;).

Looking at all the gender options offered 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 primarily looking for something with long-term potential, not too far away (long distance isn't a complete no-go, but maybe not over 2 hours by car). I am however also leaving "Looking for new friends" active because I don't want to categorically 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, recording.
I’m really good at
• Humor. 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 (Metal and Rock; will of course gladly provide links to music if requested :D). I haven't been part of any well-known projects and I'm not having illusions of 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. Hooray!
The first things people usually notice about me
is 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 increased height and blond hair ensure immediate detectability in almost all lighting conditions and crowd compositions.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Music

I don't care much about genres - I'm a little more on the Rock / Metal side of things but if it's good, it's good. A selection of current favorites: CHVRCHES, Involvers, FJØRT, Animals As Leaders, Casper, Jinjer, The Naked And Famous.

All-Time favourites include dredg, Nine Inch Nails, Coheed And Cambria, Katatonia, Opeth, 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, 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, Because Geek, Rob Chapman, Dodger...

Webcomics

xkcd, Poorly Drawn Lines, nichtlustig, Sarah's Scribbles, Pepper & Carrot, Gramfel

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, SOMA, 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
• Colorful blinking gadgets
• Cheddar
Moist towelettes
• Disobedience
I spend a lot of time thinking about
a lot, everything ranging from mind-boggling sciency stuff that makes my head explode to contemplating how people like Iggy Azelea or DJ Khaled could ever become a thing ô_Ô.

Also current events all over the world, like Brexit or that thing running for president in the USA that's basically Hitler but more orange. How much crap has to happen before people realize that nationalism on overdrive is never a good idea?
On a typical Friday night I am
GETTING SCHWIFTY in the cluuuub
.
.
.
Not convinced? Alright, alright... Probably rehearsal, sometimes actually combined with doing the going out thing afterwards, but mostly it's just video games, watching series, doing internet stuff.
You should message me if
... you manage to sit through an entire Kyary Pamyu Pamyu video without vomiting rainbows.

I can't see likes, so please don't hesitate to throw a few words at me as well :) - I'm looking forward to receiving all kinds of messages! Especially since I have man-parts and there are still a lot of ill-conceived notions about her approaching him being "desperate". It's not; it shows that you're self-confident and that you know what you want, and that's a good thing!

Englisch oder Deutsch, vollkommen egal; It's all the same to the Many-Faced God.
