My self-summary
I'm originally from the San Francisco area, but lived in Arizona (mostly in or around Phoenix) for about 10 years, Tokyo for almost three and a half, and Seattle for 17. I like a lot of the usual boy-stuff -- cars, guitars, things that go boom. I'm a certifiable nerd and have been my whole life.

I'm a textbook INTJ. I can seem a bit socially retarded at times and I'm pretty sure that has something to do with it.

I'm in a fantastic, fulfilling (open, poly) relationship with smart, vivacious woman that I met right here on OkC. Being cool with that is obviously mandatory.
What I’m doing with my life
Enjoying life. I've got a lot of hobbies, so what I'm doing depends on where my fancy is currently pointing.
I’m really good at
Learning new things. When something catches my interest I have a tendency to dig in and gain a decent level of competence / knowledge / whatever in short order. Unfortunately I can be a bit mercurial as well; I sometimes gain an interest in something then move on to the next shiny. My core hobbies have been music and photography, neither of which I really feel I've put enough time into to really excel at. It probably doesn't help any that those have pretty much always been solo endeavors for me -- spending time with somebody who has similar interests makes a massive difference for me.

I'm also good at pushing my boundaries and helping other people push theirs. Leads to personal growth and all that.
The first things people usually notice about me
Depends on which end they're facing. I've got a nice ass and beautiful blue eyes. Also the bald head. I apparently come across as a bit scary (or at the very least intimidating) which amuses me to no end since I'm actually neither of those things.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I'm quite eclectic in my tastes, really. I'll read/watch/listen to anything as long as it's *good*. Two of my favorite authors are Hunter S. Thompson and Vonnegut. Opus Pistorum has to be some of the best bus books ever. I love scifi and horror movies, but my tastes hardly end there. Tombs of the Blind Dead is one of my favs, but zombie movies in general get my juices flowing. Clockwork Orange, Bladerunner, Buckaroo Banzai, Blue Velvet, Boxing Helena, Cemetary Man. Trainspotting, Spinal Tap, Raising Arizona, Office Space, Jesus Christ Superstar. Dystopian movies and books are almost always on my list. Dirty Rotten Scoundrels may well be the best movie ever made. Music -- well, I've been listening to a lot of Madness, Lunachicks, and Frank Zappa lately -- my tastes are really quite eclectic. Next week it may be Vivaldi, Tiny Tim, and Prozzak. I *love* good food. A great meal is one of my favorite things. The caeser salad at the Empress hotel in Victoria is one of the best things I've ever put in my mouth. Oh, and cheese.
Six things I could never do without
Honestly, as long as I have food, water, and shelter I'll manage. But I guess that's not what this question is about so...

1. Hot showers 2. Toothbrush 3. A towel 4. Sex 5. Caffeine 6. Cheese
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Lots of things. I can be pretty random, so there's no telling what I might be fixated on. Maybe hoarders. Maybe string theory. Maybe why people like to hate Anne Hathaway. You *could* just ask!

I also think about how I should go back and answer some of the questionnaires here again. My answers aren't going to be the same today as when I filled them out years ago.
On a typical Friday night I am
Doing something decidedly unwholesome.

OkCupid keeps bitching at me to expand my profile to 1000 characters. To that effect, I give you one Yngwie Johan Malmsteen's magnum opus, Heaven Tonight:

Lost in a dream in the arms of the night
Two lonely prisoners of our own device
Don't let me go. Hold on together
You wanna know if love can be real
I wanna take everything I can steal
Love on the line, it's now or never.
Why can't the night last forever.

This could be Paradise
Holding you here by my side
If we just close our eyes
We'll be in Heaven tonight.

Run through the night down streets of desire
Burning my soul, my heart's on fire
Give up the fight, it's sweet surrender
With trembling hands we reach for it all
Two desperate hearts waiting to fall
I need you now, now more than ever.

Why can't the night last forever.

Repeat first Chorus.

This feels like Paradise
I see the world in our eyes
If we just hold on tight
We'll be in Heaven tonight.

Suck on that, OKC.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I have a truly prodigious (It's improbable! It's bewildering!) porn collection.

I also have conversations with my pets. They don't talk -- I do that for them. S'okay though -- I'm pretty sure I know what they're thinking. I think I do a good job of nailing their voices, too.
You should message me if
Duh -- you find me interesting in some fashion. Seriously, I'm not here trolling for hatemail. I am awesomesauce though. I'm smart, funny, and occasionally humble.

If you've seen "Secretary" and thought it was weird, you probably shouldn't message me. If you thought it was sexy then you damn well should. I'm a catch, you know.

You want to grab a beer, coffee, or some other consumable. Or if you want to chat. I promise not to send you a picture of my wang. Unless you ask nicely.
The two of us
