What else is interesting about me? Well, I wish Art Deco would make a comeback, I once ate a balanced breakfast of cereal, juice, toast and milk just to prove it could be done, I can tell you all about how people try to file magic scrolls in courtrooms, and I was interviewed on a radio show in Tasmania. No, really.
My job is really stressful, and during my time off, I'm looking to relax. If you enjoy having a fun conversation at a coffee shop or playing a card game more than you enjoy extreme sports, then I might be the kind of guy you'd want to meet. (Not that I'm not willing to do something wild every now and then, but mellowness is priority #1.)
By night, I'm reading and filming a Web series in which I talk about obscure movies. In Idaho, I was a roller derby referee. If you want to start a league here, let me know!
Basically I am the kind of person that you would want to have around if you had a long layover at the airport.
Also, do you remember that Far Side cartoon with the cats fighting in the street, and inside a house, there's another cat with a violin, and violin cat is looking out the window at the other cats looking all sad? I feel like that violin cat all the time.
b. "Flash Gordon," "Army of Darkness," "Amadeus," "This Is Spinal Tap," "Monty Python" oeuvre
c. Here are some of my Pandora stations: I have an "epic metal" station that I got by combining Therion and Apocalyptica, a "rockabilly" station that combines Reverend Horton Heat and The Stray Cats, a "totally metal" station that combines Iron Maiden and Spinal Tap, and a "swingin' bachelor pad" station I got by telling Pandora I liked "Peter Gunn."
d. Reese's Peanut Butter Cups may be God's most perfect creations. Except maybe for a home-grilled bacon cheeseburger, or ice cream.
e. TV shows - "Arrested Development," "House," "Mythbusters," "The Office" (US and UK editions), "Look Around You," "MST3K," "The Kids in the Hall," the UK edition of "Gordon Ramsay's Kitchen Nightmares," "Batman: The Brave and the Bold," "The Tick," "Psych." If I had my own TV show, it would closely resemble "Louis Theroux's Weird Weekends."
f. Sports teams - Iowa Hawkeyes, New Orleans Saints, Minnesota Twins (because the Montreal Expos have gone to see "la grande Expo dans la ciel"), Manchester City FC.
A computer (I am a nerd, but not necessarily a geek. Ex. I know what WoW is, but don't play it; I know who some of the characters in Harry Potter are, but am not particularly interested in reading it for reasons I can explain at length if necessary; I could be that guy with the shirt that says "Pwnd" but I've decided not to be that guy.)
A mattress (although I lived without one for a while, and it wasn't pleasant)
A microwave (it's the source of much of my bachelor cuisine. Here's a bachelor cuisine tip: try chili over rice, like a curry. Or PB&J on a croissant.) (The latter does not require a microwave.)
Message me if you're an artist, a scientist, a philosopher, a singer, an athlete, a nerd, or a tomboy, but not if you identify so strongly with any one of those adjectives that you couldn't see yourself as any of the others. If you scored as a Sonnet or a Maid of Honor we'll probably get along fine, and we'll probably figure out stuff to talk about.
