My name is Jacob. I was born and raised in California, went to college in NY, moved to Austin, TX after that, and currently living in Maplewood. I strive to be honest, open, non-judgmental, and empathetic, and I enjoy serious conversation about things philosophical or practical. But I also like just hanging out, shooting the shit, and generally being silly and sarcastic. I'm not exactly outgoing, but if you are I open up pretty quick. Into cats, science, nerdy stuff, video games, humor, craft beer, feminism, geology, Netflix, and all sorts of other stuff. I'm married and just looking for friends.
For movies and shows I like most genres but, like with books, I prefer more sci-fi/fantasy stuff, and smart comedy. Inception, Lord of the Rings, BTTF, Hot Fuzz, 28 Days Later, Star Wars, Dr. Who, BSG, Star Trek, Always Sunny, Daily Show, Adventure Time, Louie, Arrested Development, Parks and Rec. I dislike most reality TV, cop dramas, and while I enjoy your average big dumb action movie I wouldn't say they're actually good.
For music, I'll listen to pretty much everything unless it's crude or pointless (exceptions for intentionally or unintentionally hilarious though, like this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_yomQw30-To), but my preference (stuff I'll listen to with headphones or loud in the car) is generally for prog-rock/-metal. Porcupine Tree, Stephen Wilson, Opeth. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ycYewhiaVBk
