My self-summary
I try not to take myself too seriously...but I also try not to take "not taking myself too seriously" too seriously.

I have a very strong sense of "cheesiness" (so every now and then I can't help but read what I've written here, cringe, and delete it all). It's a pretty damaging way to live, but that's what separates me from most people. In a somewhat ironic twist this has taught me to better appreciate the hard work of others even when I don't like the end result.

If you're with me so far, then we'd probably get along.
What I’m doing with my life
Moved from Alabama to Portland to San Francisco to Portland.

I'm about to start my own software enterprise. Fear and excitement are a way of life.
I’m really good at
Being clever (hit or miss), guitar (impressive but usually boring because I improvise instrumentals..I try to keep it to myself), practicing things I'm terrible at, other things that I won't enumerate here, philosophy, being objective, making good decisions, making seemingly bad decisions that always turn out to be good decisions, parentheses, not being judgemental, being really judgemental, cooking.
The first things people usually notice about me
That I typically don't give a fuck about first impressions (metahumor).
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I'm not medium-ist...if it's art, it's art. If it's great art, then I like it. But, to conform to the norm:

Books: Anything written by someone trying to express an idea and not trying to prove how smart they are (I'm looking at you, mathematics textbook writers from the 80's!)

Shows: Humorous shows mostly...if it's a humorous detective show I'm there. Futurama, Harvey Birdman, Archer, Doctor Who...blah blah blah.

Movies: Gene Wilder, Richard Pryor, Mel Brooks movies. Select Mel Gibson movies (I'm still upset that he's insane). Movies that lend themselves to being made fun of (MST3K). To shorten this list: Most of the movies that are widely popular because they're really interesting, funny, or unique.

Music: Led Zeppelin, Edward Sharp and the Magnetic Zeroes, A lot of 60's and 70's classic rock/folk and a select group of 2000's indie stuff.

Food: I love caramel apples. Other than that, I'll eat most things and be happy about it. Except for fucking sour cream and/or cilantro.
The six things I could never do without
I hate this question so much I can't even think of a humorous way to express my disdain (though I did think of a decent synonym for hatred)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How to be successful and not be a dick about it.
On a typical Friday night I am
I'm bored...not on Fridays, necessarily, but by this question. I do things sometimes.
You should message me if
Message me if you're awesome. And not that "Oh, I'm major awesome" with fake bravado kind of awesome (though that is appreciated friend-wise), but the real-deal, "I'm a considerate person with well-developed philosophical notions and a great need to express both my intellect and emotions" kind of awesome.

Or if you're also hyper-sensitive to cliché usage and appreciate humor that builds from that.

Or you like me solely for my looks...I honestly think those are the healthiest relationships. (*actually not complete sarcasm)

Or if you just think I'm kind of cool.
