My self-summary
Hey, I'm Bill. I'm big into physical fitness, humor, and food . I love books, movies, re-enacting , videogames, podcasts,and a whole lot of other stuff. I'm an Ipod Junkie, and virtually live off the darn thing. I'm an NPR listener, and particularly love the BBC World Service, Fresh Air, and American Routes., and Wiretap I've also become a huge fan of John Hodgman's brand of whimsical nerd humor. John Oliver is pretty great too. I've gotten really big into social justice at this point of my life, and I prefer humor that punches up instead of down. Also on occasional weekends I go to a high fantasy live action role playing game. It's pretty rad.

In general, my life is mainly taken up by work, reading, the gym, and my friends, though I'm looking for a relationship at this point, be it serious or casual.

I am energetic, analytical, and curious.
What I’m doing with my life
I work for the Federal Government. I am very proud of what I do, but I don't trumpet it about on random websites (Ask me for details.)

And no I'm not a G-man.

I live in a nice little apartment in East Falls, where I spent most of my time on the top floor looking out the window at the skyline writing poetry, or just plain old writing. I definitely dig it.
I’m really good at
Analytical writing, reading, writing poetry and knowing random historical facts. Keeping to an exercise schedule.

Getting lost in wiki articles for hours on a weekend because there is always something else to learn.
The first things people usually notice about me
My voice, as I have something of a booming sound, and my smile.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
My favorite two books are the Count of Monte Cristo, and the Lord of the Rings. My favorite movies are The Empire Strikes back, Pacific Rim, and the Good, the Bad, and the Ugly. I adored Mad Max: Fury Road, and would love to talk about just why I liked that particular movie at length.

That being said, I also like foreign films/and or independent films. Amelie comes to mind immediately, as does the Seven Samurai.

I am complete anime trash. If you name it I have probably seen it, read it, or read the light novel. I will also have an opinion on it, though it will be an enthusiastic one.

I've really enjoyed the recent comic series Saga.

My musical taste tends towards Bach, Beethoven, Tenacious D, the Lonely Island, Barenaked Ladies, Steely Dan, The Protomen, Bastille, Yes, Annie Lennox, and to a lesser extent Mozart. I work out a lot to cheesy Power Metal like Dream Evil. As for foods, I've fallen in love a bit with Sushi, I enjoy a good steak, I'm on a quest to find the best cheese steak in Philadelphia, and pretty much anything new or old is wonderful for me, in terms of food.
Six things I could never do without
Sunlight, Music (Aka my Ipod), the sense of taste, the capacity to think, a sense of wonder, winter, fall.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Politics, religion, and my own place in the world. Ways to be kind, and how to have positive interactions with others.
On a typical Friday night I am
Geeking out with my buddies in Norristown, or having a delicious dinner then hitting the gym. Or dating, I love Friday nights for that reason.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I once bicep curled John Hodgman. I'll tell the story if you ask.
You should message me if
You're curious about me, love books, movies, and humor, or just want to make a friend. Basically, if you want to.

If you enjoy sincere people, by all means message me.

Don't message me if you think working for the government isn't a real job.

If you are super into something nerdy and want to share or talk about it.
