My self-summary
I'm a rather reserved guy. I bide my time tinkering, cooking and creating. I like to know how things work. I'm in a scooter gang, I row crew, I use oxford commas, and I keep a very healthy vegetable garden. I do these things but I don't think they define me. I either do things 100% or I don't do them at all. I'm a hard read and I like that way. I live without regrets.
What I’m doing with my life
Working a nine to five to keep a roof over my dog's head. Planning travel. Trying to grow the perfect cucumber. Cooking as much as possible.
I’m really good at
Critiquing art and design.
Google searches.
I have an uncanny ability to keep a straight face when I'm lying.
The first things people usually notice about me
I'm kind and quiet. My attitude is subdued but sincere. You're free to find out.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I have a soft spot for experimental noise music (Merzbow, Hijokaidan) but I save it for when I need to relax. Up until about the age of 16, I only really listened to Jazz. I know just about every Jazz standard by heart. Nowadays I listen to a lot of late Showa-era Japanese urban mellow, post-punk, pop, and fusion, haha.

I'm a real nerd for any super technical texts on anything from animal behavior to acoustics to programing to mechanical engineering. I'm a sucker for all hard-scifi.

I can't go a day or two without good Japanese food. I usually just make it

I'm into beer but I keep it real. From time to time, I'll host a bottle share at my house but snobbery of all sorts is forbidden.

I cook. A lot.

I enjoy ripping apart bad movies (or any other art) to no end.

Six things I could never do without
A project to work on. A subject to learn about. A goal to knock out. A person to help out. One great meal each day. A friend to share it with.
On a typical Friday night I am
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I stick my tongue out like a toddler when I'm really thinking hard :^p

You would like to meet or just trade music links.
