My self-summary
Good Morning, Starshine! The Earth says hello!

So.....I'm Ben. Not having a ton of luck on this site, but may just be taking a wrong approach. That said, I'll just try and be as succinct as possible. As there is plenty of information to be gleaned further down the page, I'll skip the boring stuff here and put out a silly little PSA of sorts instead.

If you're here because I sent you some random-ass "Hi there!" type message, that's because you did a spectacular job of catching this guys attention. Which is not particularly easy to do with generically framed boxes of information that don't really lend themselves to the "sparks flying" aspect of relationships. But I digress. In hopes of not coming off as some condescending douche, I'll just say nice work. Imagine a high-five here (I do those a lot). Hopefully you're here reading this, and the sentiment is mutual. If so.....let's talk. Maybe at some point, real life high fives will ensue.

If you're here because OKC sent you here and thinks we may click....I'm sorry, their matching system seems slightly askew from what I've seen so far. BUT! I am a real person, I do check this thing pretty regularly, and am (Oh my god, wait for it....) actively looking for someone to be partners in crime with. No felonies though. Also, not really hoping that phrasing to be taken literal. Just felt the need to clarify as sarcasm and deadpan humor tend not to translate well via the interweb.
What I’m doing with my life
I've spent the last 5+ years working for a local restaurant, but plan on going to school for music in the next year or so. Until then, I am big on attending live music shows, attempting to be passable at the bass guitar, and finding various ways of being awesome.
I’m really good at
Off the top of my head...making people laugh, kicking my boss's ass at words with friends, sinking 3 pointers (In real life, not just video games. Though, I do both), working hard, making random references to music, video games, and pretty much anything else in the wheelhouse of a mid-20's guy that isn't a complete asshole.
The first things people usually notice about me
I tend to stay pretty quiet until I gain some sort of familiarity, so I suppose it'd be my demeanor. I hear alot of that "chill guy" stuff more often than not, anyway.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books-Kitchen Confidential, Waiter Rant, I Hope They Serve Beer in Hell, and the Harry Potter series have served pretty well.

Movies-All time favorites are probably Super Troopers and Waiting (can you tell I've probably spent too much time in food-service yet?). As trips to the theatre are concerned, I'm down for pretty much whatever looks awesome at the time.

Music-Won't spend a ton of time listing bands, but the ones I seem to always come back to are Thrice, Streetlight Manifesto, and Strung Out. That said, I think I'll just throw out bands catching my attention periodically in hopes of someone messaging me with a "Hey! I think those guys are great, too! Let's talk on it!" (Don't judge, a guy can dream right?)

Bands for the week of 3/25: Sevendust (will be attending their show on 4/2), Foals, Frank Turner, and Local Natives
Six things I could never do without
Adaptability is important, so this question is inherently wrong to me. That said, I would be pretty rocked to the core without friendship, music, and a sense of "home."
I spend a lot of time thinking about domination and how to keep the masses from hating me when it happens. Honestly though, I don't have a solid answer to this question as it changes daily, if not more often.
On a typical Friday night I am
Working. As for the nights preceeding my days off, usually having some sort of time enjoying the company of friends. Otherwise, enjoying time at home and nerding out a bit. Be it on video games, watching dumb tv, or dabbling on my bass.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
hmm...sounds like date night conversation to me. I'll pass on this one.
You should message me if
you want to? but really, I'm terrible at "making the first move" so something as simple as a "hey there" is plenty to get a conversation started.
The two of us
