My self-summary
People tell me I am funny. I agree with those people.
I'm laid back, polite and inquisitive. I enjoy trying new things, I'm restless for good conversation. I can have fun in any setting, except for burning orphanages, those are decidedly not funny.
I enjoy good comedy. I'm well read and in good shape. I have weights that I actually use, a gym I occasionally attend, a bicycle I ride when I can and a dog I walk every day.
I'm stealing this description, but I work for an agency and do internet things, largely editing, writing and project managing. I very much enjoy good books and good writing. I have a 13-year-old lab mix, she is the way to my heart.
My tastes in music and film are relatively eclectic. I enjoy sports, which isn't to say I'm obsessive about sports. Fine, I'm somewhat obsessed with the NBA (go Cavs).
I do not play any 'actual' instruments, but let's be honest, air guitar takes just as much skill. Probably more.*

*Definitely more

I love live music. I've seen Jay Z, Bob Dylan, My Morning Jacket, Radiohead, Wilco, Beck, Doctor John, Kanye, Justin Timberlake, TV on the Radio, Muse, Trombone Shorty, Deer Hunter, Death Cab for Cutie, Sirs Paul McCartney and Elton John, Bob Dylan, Arcade Fire, Janelle Monàe, Outkast, Wu Tang (for like 30 minutes), Zappa Plays Zappa, Billy Joel and Tame Impala (plus countless local bands) since moving here.

I like dancing, a lot. I attended an amazing disco dance party at a bumper car arena in Coney Island for New Years and I've been lucky enough to be invited to The Loft. I can have fun dancing for hours.

I'm looking for a woman who is intelligent and likes to laugh and likes adventures but is not opposed to doing nothing on occasion.
Also, she should be insanely wealthy and willing to give me exorbitant sums of money on the thinnest of pretenses, i.e. "Um, look, I'm 'researching' flying ... cats? ... yes, that makes a certain kind of sense. Yes, the research requires 'ridiculously expensive bourbon' ... why? ... I don't know. I'm not a flying cat. I had hoped that was obvious."
I prefer a woman who is adventurous, passionate and sympathetic. I like informed, sarcastic women -- that combo is such a plus that I'd call it a prerequisite. Unless you desperately want to fund my research. In that case, be as dumb as you like.
What I’m doing with my life
I work as a senior content manager for an agency, which is more interesting than it sounds -- though that assumes I know how it sounds to you. I hope it sounds cool and impressive and slightly dangerous and you're like, 'I wonder how often he has to wield a sword?' (annoyingly often)
I've worked with said company for nearly a year and have worn several hats -- mostly backward because I think Fred Durst was messianic and should be emulated as such.
I’m really good at
Solving arguments -- something about me must seem impartial because I'm asked to do this a lot. Yes, I can be bought.
The first things people usually notice about me
Typically I would say, 'the fact that I am hovering about 2 inches off the ground,' but the beard seems to win out these days.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Authors: Bukowsi, Hemmingway, Vonnegut, Rushdie, Stephen King, Neil Gaman, Hunter S. Thompson, Graham Greene, Russel Banks, George Orwell, George RR Martin, P.G. Wodehouse and Poe. I've read stuff by David Foster Wallace, Murakami, Lovecraft, Zadie Smith and John Irving.

'm fairly well versed in current events. I very much love The New Yorker, the NY Times, the Post (there is only one and it is in Washington, DC), the Atlantic, NYT Review of Books, et cetera.

I'm a podcast junkie and if I ran NBC News, I would make Rachel Maddow the face of it tomorrow.

The only film genre I tend to shy from in film is horror. I have no desire to see people tortured for sport sans a compelling narrative. I enjoy comedy, both film and standup, and haven't seen nearly enough of the latter in my time here.

Deadwood is my favorite TV show of all time, but (past and present) I also really enjoy Fargo, Key and Peele, Louis, Broad City, Rick & Morty, Community, Treme, Sopranos, Six Feet Under, Game of Thrones (yes I've read the books), Louie, 30 Rock, Children's Hospital, Archer, Curb Your Enthusiasm, Mr. Show, The Office (truth: the BBC version is better), Arrested Development, Always Sunny and the Simpsons.

Where it concerns food, if the people making it are good at what they do, I don't care what it is. This city is, happily, replete with that.
The six things I could never do without
Curiosity, a good dog, great friends and family, riotous laughter and stimulants (physical and intellectual) of various kinds and potency.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Does the way people commute reveal something about their character? Who, exactly, walks into bars and thinks "For fuck's sake, I can hear people talking to me, this BLOWS."?
On a typical Friday night I am
Furiously stitching the fabric of space and time. Heads up: I am a terrible seamster. Further heads up: Seamster is a weird word.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I have no idea who my father is

talking to right now, sorry, passed out there for a minute.
You should message me if
You're the matriarch of a clan that you long ago shunned as useless morons and are at a loss as to what to do with your vast wealth. You want to explore the 'Inception'-'like' dream world I built from paper mache (hurry, it's wilting) and then explore the actual world. You want to ride bikes. You want to go to comedy shows.
OR ... you are from an immortal race of elves and it's time for me to do something awesome, preferably while controlling lightning, but that's negotiable.

P.S. The last group should not hesitate to leave me a voicemail
