My self-summary
Hmmmmmmm.
I am a great lover of sarcasm, absurdism, quirkiness, wit and silliness. I enjoy playful teasing, both as victim and perpetrator. You should have the ability to laugh at yourself because if people are laughing at you might as well join in. I like breathing. I work in the film industry in the camera department and I enjoy old and classic/foreign films as well as graphic novels/comics (especially vertigo comics or anything by Neil Gaiman and Alan Moore) and books. I want to go through all the classic books and be all intimillectual n' articulate n' learned n'shit. I loved Crime and Punishment and am now reading War and Peace. Favorite comedians are Bill Hicks, Louie CK, Dave Chappelle, Bill Burr and Patton Oswalt. I spend too much time on the internet.

I'm exceptionally tall. I'm 245 pounds of gigantic man, give or take 200 pounds. When people ask me my height I say 6'8'' in heels when I want to feel pretty. No I don't play basketball on a regular basis and yes I can indeed reach things (impressively). I also grew up in Iceland and swam here on a whim when I was 12. Only took me 8 breast strokes.

and aaaaaah yeah, I don't take things too seriously although I love serious candid and sometimes introspective discussions about our flaws and what drives us. I'm very open about all aspects of my life and don't have much of a filter. I'm very hard to offend. I like all different types but I especially admire bold tough adventurous women that are hard to offend with an appreciation for unorthodox viewpoints and maybe crude humor......also bums.

UPDATE: Now have a beard.
What I’m doing with my life
Currently working in the film industry.
I'm available sporadically, my work life is such that I go through periods of working crazy hours to not working at all.

I plan on doing a lot of traveling but not within the next year or two.

I used to be a lot heavier in the past but lost a shitload of weight, gained some strength and am now currently in love with kettlebells and bench pressing women and the elderly.
I’m really good at
Teasing, generally fucking around and moving things.
The first things people usually notice about me
Height, my tendency for bantering bullshit. Also my overbearing rugged viking manliness, which is usually noticed while I am simultaneously chopping down trees with an axe and chewing on raw steaks as well as engaging in mortal combat with grizzly bears, mountain lions and toddlers.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Big fan of most of the stuff on the IMDB top 250 list.

But if you want a list of movies then.....oh boy. You better strap yourself to your seat and be ready to have your hair blown back. That's if you have the cojones to go through a list of so far 338 movies then check this out

Warning, this also might have the slightest of chances to be unbelievably boring......mega boring.
I may or may not have done most of this list one night when I was super bored and mildly intoxicated.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
I tend to be pretty introspective and wonder about my direction in life and the meaning of it as well as the reasons people do and say the things they do.

Also think about deep stuff, like about life and whatever....and stuff. Shiny stuff! LIKE TINFOIL! OR, OR, OR, LIKE BUTTERFLIES!

Not all those who wander are lost, but seriously where the fuck am I?!

Also think about how many times in history a stupid person has said the phrase "I'm not stupid". It's probably a lot and I know this because I'm not stupid.
On a typical Friday night I am
Blerghing n' derping
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I enjoy sometimes throwing the words "up in this bitch." at the end of sentences where it doesn't belong. I also described myself once as an optimistic apathetic egalitarian humanist. Sometimes I try to use adjectives to sound smrt (S-M-R-T!) and intimillectual n'shit. I also must admit I've had fun writing and editing this profile.
Also, yet another also......I have become more interested in mens fashion, especially the workwear/americana/lumberjack aesthetic which I feel strange and uncomfortable to admit.
You should message me if
You're semi decent at mud wrasslin, or enjoy how the word wrasslin rolls off the tongue.
