My self-summary
I am a nerd.

I'm generally very laid-back.

When it comes to humor, I take the stance that very little is sacred. Or maybe nothing. I mean, I can't think of anything off the top of my head.
What I’m doing with my life
I own a business with my brother. We're doing pretty well--getting better all the time--and hope to continue expanding.

My main hobby is collecting video games. I currently own about 800 games and 25 consoles from Pong to Wii U. It'd be a much larger collection, but I only keep games I like or that are historically important.
I’m really good at
I could fix your computer, but I probably won't. Nothing personal.

I've become good at combining flavors to create new ones, since that's part of my job. I really enjoy it.

There are other things I've been told I excel at, but we don't discuss those things in polite conversation. Besides, I don't like to brag.
The first things people usually notice about me
Let's be honest, it's my boobs.

Seriously though... possibly that I smell good? I tend to wear designer/niche cologne. It's just something I like.

There's probably something else less flattering that people notice about me, but I don't know for sure because I'm not other people. And I'm so awesome nobody will tell me.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I absolutely love multiple-part questions. End sarcasm.

Books: Neal Stephenson, Lovecraft, Charles Stross, Harlan Ellison, Terry Pratchett, and the list goes on and on. That said, I don't read many books anymore, and for the most part I've only been keeping up with the new Stephenson novel every few years. And re-reading older Stephenson books. And listening to Stephenson on audiobook. The audio edition of Anathem is fantastic, by the way, and William Dufris knocked it out of the park with his narration.

Movies: B films, horror movies, mystery, comedy, drama, action, noir, romance, you name it. But give me a good documentary any day.

Shows: I haven't had cable TV service since high school, partly because there's not enough stuff worth watching and partly because I detest being advertised to. I do not think this makes me better than you. UPDATE: While I don't use it, I do now technically pay for cable TV service. It gets me a discount on my internet (since FIOS isn't available at my location yet) and also gives me access to HBO Go.

If I really want to watch a show, I'll buy the DVD, catch it on Netflix, or download it. Favorites include The Newsroom, Doctor Who, Red Dwarf, Twin Peaks, Batman: The Animated Series, and Game Center CX. I like Star Trek a lot (see the first sentence of this profile).

Music: I love Frank Zappa, Stevie Ray Vaughan, They Might Be Giants, Philip Glass, Devo, and pretty much all nerdcore hip-hop unless it's terrible... way too much to list, really. I have typically eclectic taste in music (no, listening to more than what's played on the Top 40 stations doesn't make you unique, sorry).

Some of the lesser-known bands I really like are The Darkest of the Hillside Thickets, Blitzkid, The Cryptkeeper Five, and Cancerslug.

There are a very small handful of songs that I can't listen to when other people are around, for "something-in-my-eye" reasons. Some of these songs are very likely to send me into a month-long fit of depression. I am highly unlikely to tell you what they are.

Food: I like to cook sometimes, but I don't have any favorite foods or types of foods to speak of. When dining out, I tend to lean toward Asian cuisine. Japanese, Thai, Indian, that sort of thing. But I'm just as content to go to a diner and grab a hamburger and some coffee.
Six things I could never do without
I'd be hard-pressed to think of six things I couldn't do without, besides the obvious necessities like food and water. I like having friends around sometimes, other times I prefer to be alone. I've almost completely sworn off television, as mentioned above. It'd be torture for me to go a long period of time without music, but luckily I've always got some playing in my head. I gave up cigarettes in May 2009, but I replaced them with an ecig, so I still use nicotine--just not tobacco. I definitely couldn't do without humor. Too much seriousness makes me antsy.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Count yourself lucky that you can't see inside my head. There's an awful lot of blood in there.

I let my mind wander whenever possible, and it often goes to unexpected places. It's not so much daydreaming as... well, I don't know what to call it. You could say I'm "contemplative", but that would be sugar-coating it.
On a typical Friday night I am

Seriously though, I spend my Friday nights doing what most folks do. Watching a movie, relaxing, hosting a charity gala, chatting with Alfred, fighting deranged supercriminals...

The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm not willing to admit anything truly private here. I won't insult you by flippantly tossing out some "guilty pleasure". Besides, I've already admitted how much I like Star Trek.
You should message me if
you want to talk about stuff. Bring up something you find interesting, and if I also find that thing interesting, I'll respond and a conversation will ensue! Or--and this is probably equally likely--I'll say something that offends you in some way and a conversation will not ensue. Hey, it was worth a shot.

Or if you want to play some video games. I often feel guilty sitting around playing games, so if you want to hang out and play them with me it'll give me an excuse.

Oh! I'm often reluctant to send messages on here, because my experience thus far has been that most of them don't get responses. I often spend a while writing something that I think is interesting, and while I don't feel entitled to a response from anyone, it's a bit disheartening. So if you don't really want to write a message either but you'd like to get one from me or want to know if I'm interested, rate my profile! If we both rate each other highly we'll be notified and I'm much more likely to start up a conversation. :)

Please don't message me because you saw that I'm an atheist and you want to ask me to accept Jesus into my heart. Been there, done that. I find it amazing that people do this on a dating site, but it's happened. If you choose to ignore this entreaty, please be warned that I will do my level best to convince you that you are wasting your life.
The two of us
