My self-summary
Hrm, summaries were always something I had trouble doing in school. It would be better for all of us if you directed your attention to the prompts below.

(I'm sure I'll expand on this stuff eventually but tonight is election night and I think I'll go pay attention to that now.)
What I’m doing with my life
I'm working on a PhD. A friend's uncle asked me what kind of work that led to, I responded "the 'un' kind."
I’m really good at
Failing at things and being really stubborn. Those two things usually add up to eventual success so I'm ok with them.
The first things people usually notice about me
My gentle giant qualities or my viking-like appearance. Right now the beard is a bit short for viking, but after a few drinks my heritage comes through.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: The Joe Ledger Series; The Dark Tower; The Necroscope; On Bullshit; The Nightwatch Series; anything from H.P. Lovecraft; The Walking Dead; Great old school sci-fi/dystopian lit (Fahrenheit 451; 1984, etc).

Music: Metal (mostly Melodic Death and Folk Metal); Blues (especially a dirty southern harmonica); Baroque; Tom Waits and Son of Dave.

Movies: Das Experiment; any Danny Boyle movie; any David Lynch movie; any Darren Aronofsky movie; Moon; Horror flicks (not a huge fan of slashers, not squeamish enough); Sci-fi stuff (preferably not the "my aliens are badder than that guy's" variety).

Shows: Breaking Bad; The Walking Dead; The Killing; Dexter.

Food: Ethiopian; Greek; Indian; Canadian (what ever the hell that actually means); Chinese; Japanese.
Six things I could never do without
My Computers: I need them to work and to keep in touch with friends from the old days.

My Books: I forget things so I need to look them up. Books are handy for that.

Pants: Without pants I wouldn't be able to leave my apartment and that's important to me. Pants also have pockets which make for easy storage.

My Instruments: I play the trumpet, guitar, and harmonica. Right now I'm focusing on my harmonica.

That's only four but if I discover two things during the course of my day I'll add them.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Indie game development, going to other planets, writing and art. Oh yeah, my research. I suppose that should have come first but oh well.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I had a wicked man crush on MacGyver as a kid and I think Jack Layton's stache is rad.
You should message me if
You are a sentient and sapient being.
You have a visceral and emotional response to metal or the blues.
You like to argue about politics with someone even if they don't agree with you.
"Nerdy-non-nerd" or "Non-nerd-nerdliness" describe you or intrigues you.
You've had your mind melted by the weird mathematical mysticism of set theory.
You're look for places that belongs on a Tom Waits album because you'd feel at home.
The two of us
