I’m really good at
Listening. I'm a good listener. I care about what the people I'm talking to have to say, and I'm good at figuring out what they're getting at.

I'm also fairly funny. In, you know, my opinion anyway. And I'm a good writer, and working at getting better - I'm studying screenwriting currently.
The first things people usually notice about me
I'm tall-ish? And I've got a sense of humor, and I like joking around with friends. I can be sorta sardonic/sarcastic, but generally not in a mean way.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Too many to name here. But I'll put some of each for a sense of things.

Books: Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, the Dresden Files and other stuff by Jim Butcher, basically anything by Terry Pratchett, most stuff I've read by Gene Wolfe, the Years of Lyndon Johnson, Joe Abercrombie's books, Mark Lawrence's books, Harry Connolly's books, Patrick Rothfuss's books (if you can't tell I tend to follow authors), and the odd crime or history book.

Movies: The Royal Tenenbaums, Tarantino's stuff (even Death Proof! well, kinda.), Fight Club, Garden State, The Raid: Redemption, Aliens, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind. And to be honest, I'll put up with fairly high levels of suck in the other parts of a movie if it has enough cool action/fight sequences. Unless it's Michael Bay. Then that's still a "nope".

Shows: The West Wing, Parks and Rec, Community, 30 Rock, BtVS, Firefly, It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia, Archer, Justified, Terriers. And while I don't watch it much anymore, classic Simpsons was basically foundational for my sense of humor. If you can whip out and/or recognize a good classic Simpsons reference? Oh, so many points to you.

Music: Fairly eclectic. Some selections - Alkaline Trio, Atmosphere, Be Your Own Pet, Eels, Green Day, some of Johnny Cash's stuff, Kanye (don't hate!), Magnetic Fields, Modest Mouse, Nirvana, Rilo Kiley, Sublime, SoaD (though I don't listen to them as much anymore), Yeah Yeah Yeahs (more their earlier stuff though). Yes, that list is alphabetical because I picked it out by scrolling through my iTunes.

Food? Not my biggest passion. Though I do love me some pizza. Mm, pizza.

Also, even though the category doesn't ask, I do love me some computer games in my free time (when I'm not occupied with the other stuff above). So: Baldur's Gate II (for nostalgia anyway), Borderlands 2 (so addictive) Fallout: New Vegas, Saints Row IV, Witcher 2, Skyrim (and the billions of mods for it), Torchlight II, Batman: Arkham City, Bioshock Infinite (story/setting counts majorly here)... the list could go on but it probably shouldn't. Anyway, if you couldn't tell, I tend to favor RPGs, but I also enjoy some shooty/explosiony type gameplay as well. Especially if some RPG elements and/or a good story are mixed in.
The six things I could never do without
Family, friends, internet, books, music, games.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
The most random shit. Pop culture, politics, whatever. I also find myself gaming out various implausible hypothetical scenarios, like what I'll do once I achieve my secret life-long goal of becoming Space Emperor (it's like being a regular emperor, but with SPACE! fuck yeah, space). Or how I'd make various things into movies, given the opportunity. Or... well, you probably get the idea - I can be a bit of a daydreamer. But if you're not dreaming, you're dying. Either somebody said that, or they should have.
On a typical Friday night I am
Probably chilling out with a good movie or book.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
If you're willing to admit it to total strangers, can it actually be considered private? Besides, I already admitted that sometimes I think about becoming Space Emperor. That's not something that you'd usually admit in public, is it?
You should message me if
If you actually read this far and still think I might be interesting? If you're also upset that Parks and Rec is really over? If you like joking around/sarcasm/irony/whatever? Hell, I don't know. Message me if you want to get to know me better, basically.
