My self-summary
My name is Ryan. I'm a musician, I play in a couple bands and also do a lot of solo gigs. In good times I make about half my money that way which is great. I care about people more than just about anything. I love to think about everything, I love to question everything; I love to make noise out of it.

You know, I really don't feel like writing an essay about myself here. There's enough info in the rest of the profile to get you started.

Also, I read okcupid profiles backward.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm playing in a somewhat tongue-in-cheek tribute band, which is strangely successful, as well as playing solo gigs as often as possible. It's fun and it miraculously pays the bills sometimes. I also play in a garage/psyche rock band for fun, work a day job, and live in my favorite neighborhood.

Moving forward I'm interested in returning to making my own music again, and still looking for what might be my lifelong career. But right now, music and driving are working.
I’m really good at
Being intuitive. Playing and listening to music. Singing. Driving. Seeing the big picture. Catching the details. Being compassionate... usually. Doing whatever needs to be done. Having fun when it's available. You know... stuff.
The first things people usually notice about me
That I know what I want and why I'm there.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
My all time favorite book is Time Enough For Love by Robert A. Heinlein.

I love Lost in Translation, Leaving Las Vegas, Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas, The Matrix, American Beauty, High Fidelity, Office Space, Bernie.

I love The Office and King of the Hill and Full House. I loved Lost while it was on. I like a lot of sketch comedy. Mr Show, Kids in the Hall, SNL, Portlandia. 30 Rock. Trailer Park Boys. Bob's Burgers. Derek. Orange/Black.

Music is obviously a lifestyle for me and I listen to a lot of bands and artists. Some are Radiohead, Tool, Bright Eyes, Queens of the Stone Age, FAILURE, Beck, Gillian Welch, Jenny Lewis/Rilo Kiley, Flaming Lips, Modest Mouse, St Vincent, Puscifer, Carina Round, Cage The Elephant, Fiona Apple, Corb Lund.

Mexican, Italian, Thai, and everything else.
Six things I could never do without
I like to keep friends, a lover, guitars, some good music, a little cash, and a few beers around.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Everything. Especially how it relates to everything else.

...and women.
On a typical Friday night I am
Doing something questionable with my best friends. Or playing a gig in my silly but stylish country and western singer outfit while drinking and making new acquaintances... for money.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I've given up on the ideas that used to mean the most to me. Now I'm just trying to live comfortably and laugh a lot. And I think that's okay.
You should message me if
You want to. Period. I'm open to anyone.

Or if you've read Time Enough For Love and enjoyed it.

Or if you want to talk about or play music.

And especially if you want to watch Full House.

The two of us
