My self-summary
To ensure objectivity this profile has been written in collaboration with my good friendmrugly83. When I switch between the first and third person speak, rest assured I'm not going crazy, just poor at transitioning. Tamen used to be a goth kid, fraternity brother(Kappa Sigma anyone?), volunteer and student. Now he's just Tamen. Very open to challenging status quo and popular belief. He moved here from the Midwest 3 years ago after a two year stint in americorps. He just finished with college here studying education and being very involved in campus organizing and activities. Tamen stays fit climbing, riding bikes, and is up for a game of wits as quick as a game of frisbee or basketball. He likes to paint, read about differing philosophies and current events and conversate about these things. Tamen has a unique ability to discuss hot button issues and Entertain both sides of an argument while keeping a level head. If you like to discuss a range of topics from religion to politics and philosophy, preferably over coffee, then find Tamen, hint, here he is.
What I’m doing with my life
Tamen is currently figuring out his post-college move, hoping to find someone that stimulates his mind and can give direction to his many random projects that currently occupy his time, from founding political action groups, to making YouTube videos, volunteering, and bike riding.
I’m really good at
entertaining people, sales, rock climbing, debate, ultimate frisbee, basketball, creative writing, teaching, community organizing, painting, photography and most importantly...making people think.
The first things people usually notice about me
either my smile, kick ass outfit,
or my tattoos.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Some of my favorite books are Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance, A New Earth, Catcher In The Rye, The Revolution, Nausea and One Nation Under Sex.
My favorite movies include Eternal Sunshine of a Spotless Mind, The Truman Show, The Darjeeling Limited, The Royal Tenenbaums and Adaptation. My favorite shows are Big Love, In Treatment, The Sopranos and Californication.
My favorite food is Thai.
My taste in bands has changed throughout the years: death cab for cutie, afi, Marilyn Manson, motion city soundtrack, rancid, left over crack, DMB, Kane west, nirvana, smashing pumpkins, the cure. These are a few of my favorites. Really open to most music minus country and real mainstream rap.
Six things I could never do without
Good books, cognitive discourse, Idevice, my cat, the inter web, and my autoimmune system, you guys rock
I spend a lot of time thinking about
the creative projects that I have in the works.
On a typical Friday night I am
Tamen is not much of a bar gooer, unless you get him really drunk or make it sound like, this time, it's a really good idea. If he's not hanging with a friend, he'll be reading or hanging out with other friends.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I just joined a dating website.
You should message me if
You're over the bar scene. Tamen could use someone who is most importantly intellectually stimulating. Points of view being aligned is not of highest priority but rather the ability to defend and think critically about your own and others ideas. He tries to be funny all the time which is, in and of itself, very funny at times. Especially when he actually is funny. Then it's hilarious. Message Tamen and you're guaranteed a well thought out reply at the very least.
The two of us
