My self-summary
I'm very observant. But I remember aesthetics over names. (I know how to get there, but I have no idea what street it's on.) I think artistic expression is the meaning of life. I'm a good listener, and people often ask me for advice. Most of my humor is very wry. Some people call it sarcasm.
What I’m doing with my life
I write code for an educational web start-up. I also play in two bands, and produce my own music occasionally.
I’m really good at
snowboarding, drums, computers, dancing, keeping promises, learning new things - particularly if they are electronic in nature. someone told me once that i have good instincts.
The first things people usually notice about me
I'm smart, but down to earth. I know a lot of random stuff, mostly stuff you'd find in a museum. I'm kinda quiet, but I can easily get going on a topic.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
So much - all i can do is name a somewhat random sampling... from Caribou, Modeselektor, Com Truise, Grizzly Bear, White Denim to Yes, Curtis Mayfield, Mahavishnu Orchestra... I like a ton of music (but not all). I respect bands more when they bring their live shows to a whole new level instead of just reproducting their album really well. But some bands are worth just getting their recorded music. I like a lot more electronic music that I don't necessarily buy the albums to but still really love. Like this mix my friend made: http://soundcloud.com/atish/atish-028-september-2012-god. As for movies, I really liked Moon, Choke, and Confessions of a Dangerous Mind independently before I realized the Sam Rockwell connection. Though I'd prefer to be stuck on an island with Natalie Portman. A Clockwork Orange is a fascinating book and movie. Isaac Asimov and Orson Scott Card are perhaps my favorite authors, though Ray Bradbury gets an honorable mention. Breaking Bad, Modern Family, Archer, Game of Thrones, The Walking Dead, and The Daily Show come to mind as good TV shows. Food -- come on. There are very few things I wouldn't eat, but good food is one of the most enjoyable things in the world.
The six things I could never do without
1. I'm going to count my senses as one thing instead of five
2. relatedly, music (and it's cousin dancing)
3. a quick escape route to nature
4. a bicycle
5. that's pretty much it
I spend a lot of time thinking about
stuff i want to do, see, read, bake, or create, but that i don't; politics (so much idiocy, but also often fascinating); and a ton of random stuff that is too varied to categorize, like how different kids being born today will interact with the world when they're older, or how valuable human life really is when the population is expanding so rapidly and continuously, why there are so many 24-hour donut shops, or if people notice and/or care that some of my profile is capitalized correctly and some of it isn't.
On a typical Friday night I am
out to dinner, then a bar or a show, perhaps a house party. or sometimes holed up in a room trying to iron out a song with some band mates. or sometimes just watching a movie with some wine in bed.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
sometimes i like to wear colorful briefs.
You should message me if
you don't get too wrapped up in notions of people from reading their profiles and then have super specific ideas of who they are supposed to be when you finally meet them. you don't take anything to seriously. you don't take nothing seriously. you don't give something a chance simply because there is a possibility that it might suck.
