My self-summary
Update: I'm traveling in Mexico and may be slow to reply.

Yeah so I don't like writing about myself... Well shit, guess this thing won't let me get off that easy.

I like good times with friends and doing shit outside. I think, dream, debate, discover and imagine. I like beer, movies, music and good food. I can be happy as a homebody or being social. I'm crass, sarcastic and occasionally awkward. I'm easy going and my humor tends toward unfortunately bad puns. For friends I get along best with smartasses and geeks. For lovers pervy nerdy girls. As long as you like to talk about random ideas we'll get along great. I'm of a liberal slant but pick issue by issue rather than subscribing to any particular political perspective.

I am inquisitive, introspective, and imaginative.
What I’m doing with my life
Working as a web developer, enjoying life and thinking about what next. Scheming for world domination or at least entrepreneurial satisfaction. Summer is for bikes, bars, bluffs, kickball, disc golf, backpacking, bbq, the beach and any other fun in the sun with friends. Winter used to be for snowboarding but now I'm looking for a new wet season obsession.
I’m really good at
Learning anything quickly. Putting my foot in my mouth. Mistaking casual banter for passioned debate. Getting distracted.
The first things people usually notice about me
That I look like Cary Elwes? That I squint a lot? I dunno, ask other people, not me.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Movies: Hell... I like way way way to many movies to list here. I love films with characters that go through a dramatic change, and particularly if it's from a subjective perspective or uses a novel storytelling structure. I'm also totally entertained by most any movie even if it's pretty bad. Shit go boom. Hur hur. Lock Stock and 2 Smoking Barrels. Heat. Collateral. Amelie. The Ice Storm. Pi. The Limey. Solaris. Requiem for a Dream. Trainspotting. Shaun of the Dead. Hot Fuzz. Blue. The Pillow Book, Prospero's Books... hell, any Peter Greenaway. Brazil. Baraka. Brick. Porco Rosso. Batman Begins. Bond Movies. House of Sand and Fog. Master and Commander. Dune. The Fog of War. The Fountain. The Girl in the Cafe, Notes on a Scandal.

Books: I don't read much fiction these days... most of my reading time goes to indulging my technical curiosity in non-fiction. Past fav reads: Demian, Siddartha and Steppenwolf by Herman Hesse, Nausea by Sartre, Still-life with Woodpecker by Tom Robbins. Ubik by Phillip K Dick. various Neil Stephenson and William Gibson. My sci-fi dirty pleasure series is Honor Harrington by David Weber.

Music: If I was trapped on the desert island with only 1 cd to listen to it'd be Massive Attack's Mezzanine. I love it for the melancholy techno songs, not the dub stuff. Right now I'm really liking Mt Eden, Bassnectar, M83, The Radio Dept., Nosaj Thing and lots of music off blogs. Other bands I've liked over the years: Amon Tobin, Hybrid, Nine Inch Nails, My Life With the Thrill Kill Kult, Machines of Love and Grace, Four Tet, Goldfrapp, BT, Future Sound of London, Circle of Dust, Hammock, Ladytron, Trentemoller, The Knife, Fischerspooner, Woob, Yasume, Royksopp, Strength, Andre Nicketana, !!!, Boards of Canada, M83. I like lots of music, but really tend to stuff with an melodic or ambient electronic vibe.

Food: I love it all from upscale to divey. So much good food in Portland. I'm not a great cook but I'm having fun learning. I'm a happy omnivore but saddened by our food industry and try to make practical sustainable choices.
Six things I could never do without
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Anything and everything... I'm consumed by curiosity, existentialism and introspection to the point of it being a disability. i'm easily distracted by both shiny and non-shiny objects.
On a typical Friday night I am
Watching a movie, playing a game, reading something I'm interested in, sharing a beer with friends.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
That wouldn't be any fun now would it.
You should message me if
You're rad, crass and conversational.
The two of us
