My self-summary
Sort of like if a ridiculously optimistic kid and a morbid teenager had to operate the body of a very confused adult.

OKC says I'm more adventurous but less outgoing than the average male user and I think that contradiction actually describes me pretty well.
What I’m doing with my life
I've been shotgunning artistic pursuits my whole life, but I get the most professional results from screen acting. Plus, I love it. Trying to integrate what I know into a directing career but I'm pretty green. The only thing I love more than making is experimenting and exploring.
I’m really good at
Interviews, trip-sitting, staring contests, eating contests, throwing myself into things, not dropping my phone in the toilet ever, occasionally swallowing fire while still being a graceless clumsy person about it.
The first things people usually notice about me
I'm pretty pale, got big ol' sadboy eyes, and apparently look like I'm about to say something even when I'm not.

Strange men tell me to smile sometimes. I understand .05 of your struggle.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Clark Ashton Smith, Harlan Ellison, David Foster Wallace, J.G. Ballard, Guy Debord, H.P. Lovecraft. The college doomnerd starter pack, basically.

Comics - Minimum Wage, Black Hole, The Maxx, Blankets, Lint, lots of student work/independent comics.

Also dusty old water stained synthesizer manuals I find on ebay.

Movies: The Adventures of Baron Munchausen, Cemetery Man, Gummo, Eraserhead, Fargo, Evil Dead 2, The Five Obstructions, Mr. Lonely, American Movie, Phantasm, Nightmare on Elm St. 1 & 3, Pink Flamingos, Songs from the Second Floor - I love and appreciate many more movies than this. This is just sort of a taste sampler.

Music: Alien Sex Fiend, The Books, Crash Course in Science, Timber Timbre, Daniel Johnston, Grimes, Crystal Castles, Bauhaus, John Maus, Joy Division, The Residents, R. Stevie Moore, Jeffrey Lewis The Legendary Pink Dots, Tunng, Units, Fad Gadget, Siouxsie and the Banshees Nervous Gender Wire (etc.) Also just a taste sampler, but mostly gothy post-punk synth punk silly zolo lo-fi indie bologna electronic stuff. Contemporary popular stuff I can also dig, like Odd Future, Drake, Miley, Gaga etc.

Television: Chris Gethard Show, Baskets, Bojack Horseman, The Maxx, The Regular Show, Adventure Time, Louie, Parks and Rec, Community, Bob's Burgers, Slings & Arrows.

Food: I eat like Tony Soprano the first time he saw a bowl of Fettucini Alfredo.
The six things I could never do without
Retreats with friends. Brave performers. Keyboards. I'll come back to this.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Consciousness thinking about consciousness.

Daydreaming about owning a trailer and a little farm, even though I know nothing about these things.

That we're constantly in physical contact with things, whether it's clothing or a floor or a bed, we will just forever be touching something from the cradle to the grave.

What to message you based on your endearing but minimal profile about how much you hate it on here.

Stories I'll never finish.

Love and death and all those mandatory brain problems.
On a typical Friday night I am
Fridays don't mean much to me, but in the spirit of what I'm sure this question is trying to get at - I love unusual live shows. Performance art, creative burlesque, fire shows, freak shows, interactive installations, etc. When I'm with friends I like to play games, draw, or make music/soundscapes together. Not to sound pretentious or shit on the cultural phenomenon of "Netflix and chill" (oh god it's in my profile now) but I don't really enjoy marathoning shows with friends or lovers. I engage with people personally to escape the internet/media echo chamber, but that's not to say I don't enjoy sharing those things once in awhile. Like, I'd honestly probably have more fun cleaning a room with someone I like than watching TV with them.
You should message me if
If you want to talk, you probably should. I find it easier to strike up a conversation in person than on here these days and rarely send first messages.
