My self-summary
I moved to Austin from California one year ago, and I'm looking to meet new people and looking to find fun things to do, especially if they involve good music, delicious food, or the outdoors.

I like all sorts of activities including outdoorsy-adventurous things such as bike riding, hikes, wake boarding, snowboarding, water skiing, camping. I also like more relaxing, indoor things such as reading, playing video games, playing poker/board/card games, and watching good movies and television. I also love food, and I'm really good at both eating it and making it and especially good at eating the delicious and fun foods I make.
What I’m doing with my life
I am working, trying to stay reasonably healthy, and looking for fun things to do in the Austin. I'm open to suggestions!
I’m really good at
Memorizing random and mostly unimportant facts. Getting injured in silly and surprising ways (although it has been a while) and riding in ambulances.
The first things people usually notice about me
I'm tall. Yes, I know that I am tall. No, I'm not getting taller. And no, I don't play basketball.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I love science fiction, fantasy, and quirky/absurd comedy. Even better are books that combine those elements, such as H2G2 and Discworld. Right now, I'm reading Song of Fire and Ice, Dark Tower, Star Wars, Discworld, Ender series, and Simon R. Greene's Drood and Nightside series (guilty pleasures). Also classics such as Dune, The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, 1984, Frankenstein, and Brave New World. Even more nerdy books I really enjoyed are Freakonomics and Eats, Shoots, and Leaves.

Again, I enjoy mostly science fiction, comedy, and action movies. This includes Shaun of the Dead, This is Spinal Tap, Star Wars, Indiana Jones, Contact, V for Vendetta, The Day the Earth Stood Still (original), The Truman Show, Hot Fuzz, Austin Powers, Lord of the Rings, blah, blah blah. Basically movies that are good as well as entertaining.

I enjoy smart, witty comedies, well developed dramas, and science fiction.

My musical tastes are a bit varied. I listen mainly to classic rock of all types, from the 60s through the mid-80s. I also enjoy orchestrated film soundtracks, such as those by John Williams (Star Wars, Indiana Jones, and basically every important blockbuster), Howard Shore (Lord of the Rings), and Bear McCreary (Battlestar Galactica). I can also appreciate good jazz music. As for more modern music, I love The Black Keys and the Noisettes. I've also been listening to Fitz and the Tantrums, Alabama Shakes, and the Raconteurs. Also Spinal Tap.

Quite simply, I love food. I will eat just about anything. I am good at cooking creative and interesting recipes I've found online. I enjoy very spicy foods. I'm also quite partial to cheesecakes and cookie dough ice cream.
Six things I could never do without
Computer and a fast internet connection.
Good music.
Good talk show podcasts.
An entertaining book to read.
Hot weather.
Good food.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
I spend a lot of time thinking, period. I usually find it hard to stop. When I try, I end up thinking about trying not to think. I think a lot about politics, technology, my life, my future, economics, business ideas, and lots of other things. I think philosophically on society, humanity, the future, time travel. Also way too much time on exactly what I'm going to put in these silly profile essays.
On a typical Friday night I am
Sometimes out to dinner or a concert or a movie or maybe at home relaxing after a long work week.
You should message me if
We have some interests in common. Also, you have posted a picture taken of you by a friend; bathrooms are not attractive.
