My self-summary
Upfront- I am a widower, it doesn’t define me, but it is a part of me. My wife passed away a few years ago, and I’ve not dated much since then (outside of a LD relationship). I thought I’d update this and see how dating life is these days.

What I’m doing with my life
I work in IT in the Healthcare industry, due to restructuring, I recently had to move to 3rd shift. My current work schedule sucks, I had hoped it would “move from suck to blow!” soon, but I’m currently working nights, and weekends, hopefully that’ll change again soon.

I’ve started back to KSU to finish another degree, and will hopefully be done with that by the end of the year.

I’ve no clue when that leaves for any type of a date, but I’m guessing being a night owl would help.

Have I scared you off yet?

My niece and nephews think that I am cool…
I’m really good at
I’m really good at making cheesy puns and Monty Python quotes- girls LOOOVE that, right? Seriously, if you are annoyed by cheesy puns, you might have to see an obstetrician afterwards due to all the eye-rolling. I apologize in advance.

I’ve been trying to improve myself these days. Mentally and Physically- Hiking, going to the gym, I did a Spartan Race and a Tough Mudder last year. The job messing with me kept me from getting the Spartan Trifecta, but still in the plans.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I'm a geek, I'll make no pretenses or excuses about it. More specifically I'm an art-geek, gamer-geek, tech-geek, music-geek, comic-geek, sci-fi/fantasy/horror movie geek, cartoon geek and umm...probably even more geek-icities than I'm aware of.

I like to read for fun, mostly sci-fi/fantasy, or tech-related stuff - GRRM’s “Song of Ice and Fire”, SM Stirling’s “Emberverse”, Neil Gaiman Harry Potter, Dresden Files- just restarted those, after stopping at book 3 years ago, Terry Pratchett. Etc.

Movies -
Star Wars trilogy, LotR trilogy, Serenity/Firefly, Most of the Superhero movies, the Harry Potter series, The Princess Bride, 10 things I hate about you, Empire Records, pretty much all the Pixar and most Disney movies., Shaun of the Dead, 28 days later (My horror genre of choice is almost entirely of the post-apocalyptic variety.)

Recently started watching Parks and Rec on Netflix, and trying catch up with Doctor Who. Game of Thrones, Stranger Things, Chuck, The Big Bang Theory, Community, The Mythbusters, The Walking Dead (although I’ve gotten behind-getting harder to keep tuning in), Simpsons, Bob’s Burgers, 80s cartoons. Newer stuff- Dark Matter, The Goldbergs, Modern Family

My musical tastes have definitely mellowed in more recent years, but I cut my teeth on metal and punk (especially Celtic punk), and still enjoy it fairly often.
Nightwish, Epica, Within Temptation. Lacuna Coil, Apocalyptica, Tool, Demon Hunter, Metallica, Rammstein,
Social Distortion, Flogging Molly, Rancid, Bad Religion, Rollins, Cowboy Mouth, Clutch, Johnny Cash, Kaleo
I used to go to a ton of shows, but not as often anymore.
I listen to a lot of soundtrack music while working- anything from Disney movie soundtracks to game soundtracks.

Not too big on modern pop, rap or country, although I love 80s hip-hop and bluegrass.
Six things I could never do without
1. Air ;)
2. Water
3. Food
4. Shelter
5. other stuff
6. ^^what they said

Seriously though, while I don’t “Need” it, I am rarely seen without my phone, but with all the BS that I’ve had to deal with last few years, makes me appreciate how important friends and family are, I couldn’t have done it without them.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
I’m a simple man, I get excited when a trailer for the new Marvel or Star Wars movie comes out. I like to draw and paint. I get excited going to the art supply store. I go to DragonCon regularly, and would love to go to some of the other Cons out of state. I'm a tech-geek, I like figuring out how things work, taking it apart and trying to put it back together.

I want to travel, I have not had the opportunities for much travel, but I definitely want to.
On a typical Friday night I am
Sadly, these nights I am working, but I am guessing the question isn’t that literal. As far as dates, I’m more of a couch and Netflix kind of guy, but I’m willing to try to figure out an enjoyable date.

A couple of shows coming up that I’d love to go to-

Atlanta Symphony Orchestra is doing a Star Wars show, and a Harry Potter show soon- I’d love to go to either of those. I missed the Hans Zimmer show they did recently.

Social Distortion, Rob Zombie, Kaleo, Gorillaz, Lacuna Coil, Epica, Apocalyptica are all shows coming up soon that I’d like to go to.
You should message me if
-you are on fire. I know the number for 911.

-I messaged you first (it's only polite after all)

-even slightly amused by my currently overly-caffeinated, rambling, inane diatribe.

-I'm always up for chatting to people with similar interests, and turning them into new friends

I don’t care for drama
The two of us
