My self-summary
"It was the old battle, old as the world, wide as the world—the sudden panther leap of the animal, lips drawn, fangs aflash, hideous, monstrous, not to be resisted, and the simultaneous arousing of the other man, the better self that cries, “Down, down,” without knowing why; that grips the monster; that fights to strangle it, to thrust it down and back."

What I’m doing with my life
reluctant tech bro;
writing novels & comics & twitter jokes about poop;
drawing a million monsters everywhere;
learning to play a ukulele that looks like a watermelon;
trying to be a better human;
wondering about this very question
I’m really good at
Making jokes, being pedantic, regular bowel movements, English spelling & grammar, writing proper ampersands by hand, knowing stuff like that "ampersand" comes from and per se and & that the ampersand symbol is an abstracted et which is Latin for "and" (& per se btw is Latin for "by itself"), standing on one foot, Scrabble, eating really fast, clapping, seeming like I know things about foreign languages I don't really speak
The first things people usually notice about me
my hair is probably a color
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I like anything that plays with form/structure/conventions in clever or meaningful ways. e.g. Infinite Jest, Cabin in the Woods, Moby Dick, Community, If on a winter's night a traveler, 30 Rock, Tristram Shandy, Groundhog Day

I like ridiculous, idiosyncratic art with a core of humanity. e.g. The Royal Tenenbaums, Buckaroo Banzai, Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure, Adventure time, the good Star Treks (TNG, DS9), Howl's Moving Castle

I like fiction where there's a cop, and the cop is also a robot. e.g. RoboCop (1987)

My favorite music is harsh and weird but with catchy hooks. e.g. Tom Waits, Sleigh Bells, Son Lux, Joanna Newsom, Misfits, Sunset Rubdown, Soul Coughing, The Magnetic Fields, Talking Heads, the Vandals
The six things I could never do without
§ computer
§ Cadbury mini eggs
§ animated gifs
§ bright colors
§ emoticons that I made up
へ( ︶◡︶)>
§ honestly, girls to talk to
I spend a lot of time thinking about
jokes • words & their origins & meanings • dorky shit like Pokémon or Harry Potter • story ideas • what to sing at karaoke • names for bands that will never exist • human bodies • tattoos I may never get • what other people are thinking about • myself
On a typical Friday night I am
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I guess I'm a nihilist. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

yo, I have strong opinions about punctuation and spelling, BUT PROBABLY NOT THE ONES YOU WOULD EXPECT
You should message me if
the idea of being awake at 2 am on a school night debating whether sonic the hedgehog is a symbol of the bourgeoisie sounds like a rad time
