My self-summary
I was born...Then twenty-one years later I thought it could be fun or at least mildly amusing to try online dating.

I consider myself, above most other traits, a curious man--hence my presence on this website. I am eager to see what's (or who's) Out There.
What I’m doing with my life
I majored in English in college, and like many great English majors before me, I am now doing nothing that pertains to literature (at least as far as a job is concerned). I spend most of my working days walking, feeding, and occasionally singing to cats and dogs. I am a "veterinary assistant," yet I have never actually owned a pet...Besides a single goldfish...Named Scott...

Of course, in the future that will change. By 2018 I'll be living in New York, a young and successful Vice journalist who writes witty and incisive features on obscure-and-interesting-and-topical...topics. Maybe...Is Vice even cool anymore?

Besides that, I keep it pretty simple. I like to read, hike, walk around, find and listen to all sorts of music, and play cheap instruments.
I’m really good at
I've yet to think of a "fun" or cheeky way to fill this out, like so many others have, so I'll just play it straight. I tend to get distracted easily and find new interests quickly, so I've tried, know a bit about, and still occasionally dabble in film photography, electric guitar, melodica (such a great instrument) among other trifling things like darts, bowling (too late to get good at a "real" sport)...baking...I may not exactly be "really good at" all of these things, but they're things I like nonetheless.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: Cane by Jean Toomer, The Island of Dr. Moreau by HG Wells, The Sound of Waves by Yukio Mishima, Ball Four by Jim Bouton, Babbitt by Sinclair Lewis, The Brief and Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao by Junot Diaz, The Heart is a Lonely Hunter by Carson McCullers, Where I'm Calling From by Raymond Carver, Langston Hughes' Selected Poems, Winesburg Ohio by Sherwood Anderson, The Commitments by Roddy Doyle.

Movies: Movies are cool. I watch a lot of older foreign films and documentaries, but I also love movies such as Wayne's World and The Big Lebowski.

TV Shows: I usually just watch TV to procrastinate. I don't watch it too often. I normally just watch episodes of stuff like King of the Hill and South Park, or I'll return to my favorite Adult Swim show--or perhaps just my favorite show in general--Tom Goes to the Mayor. Also, I watched Twin Peaks recently, and it's probably the best TV drama ever...

Music: The Velvet Underground, Berry and Diddley, R.E.M., Charlie Parker, Public Enemy, De La Soul, early 70s soul groups (Chi-Lites, Stylistics), Tune Yards, Ariel Pink, Neil Young, The Magnetic Fields, The Moldy Peaches, Jonathan Richman, lots of 80s music (the punk, the pop, and the hip-hop), reggae that is and isn't Bob Marley, Gram Parsons, Lucinda Williams, and, of course, Tony Toni Toné. My profile, if you're into that:

Food: Food. I could go for pretty much anything, but I am partial to Chinese, Japanese, Indian, Thai, "American" (burgers, regional fare [e.g., soul food, chowdah]), Vietnamese, Mexican, etc. I had Ethiopian food once...It was tasty...I also dig farmers' markets. I care deeply about food quality.
The six things I could never do without
a nearby park
something to read, ideally in the form of a book or a newspaper
a few friends
On a typical Friday night I am
On a typical Friday night I am usually hanging out with some friends, doing any of the following activities: chatting, driving around aimlessly, going to a show, eating out, or just watching something on TV. If I'm not doing any of those things, then I'll probably be at home, reading, or listening to music. Any of these activities--except driving around and the ones that involve me, alone--may or may not involve varying quantities of cheap, or, as I get older, not-so-cheap beer.
You should message me if
You think we have similar interests and could get along in person. Or if you would like to discuss music or movies or books or news or the universe or food or amusing anecdotes or strange phenomena (e.g., or anything really.
