My self-summary
There's a lot of life out there to be had, and I'm looking for someone to share in that with. I'm willing to just go on dates and see how things go, I'm not jumping super fast in to anything. The name's Eric. Aspiring writer. Sort of an old soul navigating the often exasperating millennial terrain I am unfortunately associated with by proximity of birth.

Anime, fantasy, sci fi, general nerd fare, conventions, video games and comics. All of these things are love and life. Always down for an anime and a drinking game.
What I’m doing with my life
I adore old fashioned romance, and people scoff at me (yes, this has actually happened). I've been trying to prove them wrong.

Been trying to get on that Overwatch hype train hahaha

I have a Bachelors degree in English Literature and that's why the paragraph above is perfectly punctuated, and the spelling's on point as well. I currently work for a law firm. My dream job is probably going to involve music, though I'm aspiring to be a writer. Music truly is my passion, and I'm good with most any instrument (all the ones I've tried so far anyway). I work in Manhattan, but I'm not particularly fond of the city, though it has its upsides. The country and wilderness speaks to my spirit.
I’m really good at
Poetry and freestyle rapping.
Discussing philosophy, music, and art.

(To sum up a quarter of a lifetimes skill set or interest list in a single list in one sitting is asking a lot. Message me and I'm sure I'll remember something new XD)
The first things people usually notice about me
People say I'm Charlie Day (Charlie Kelly). Otherwise, my laugh, my love of strange noises and sound in general. My open mindedness about things that make most uncomfortable. My eccentric tastes in music. People have cited my jaw-line and facial structure as outstanding.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Reading is a huge love of mine. Mythology geek. I read everything from novels to comics, poetry to magazines. Some of my favorite authors include R.A. Salvatore, Neil Gaiman, H.P. Lovecraft and Haruki Murakami ,among others. Also really big on classics from Dostoevsky to Arthurian legend to Paradise Lost.

Cinema is a big part of my life. Goddard's Breathless, Marx Brothers movies, David Lynch, The Big Lebowski, Alejandro Jodorowsky, Hard Candy, Evil Dead Trilogy, all assortments of bad horror (good horror is seldom found), Shaun of the Dead, Sword of the Stranger, old horror films, old films in general, anything Marvel related, Wes Anderson movies, Monty Python, In Bruges, Boondock Saints, American Psycho, Akira, Buffalo '66, The Neverending Story, Labyrinth, Hedwig and the Angry Inch, many more

I love Always Sunny and Rick & Morty! Adventure Time, Breaking Bad, Orphan Black, Stranger Things, Walking Dead, Mighty Boosh, Sherlock, Gravity Falls, Dr. Who, South Park, Firefly (anything Joss Whedon gets his hands on, really) and a bunch of others. Lots and lots of different anime. Favorites include Neon Genesis Evangelion, JoJo's Bizzare Adventure, Fullmetal Alchemist Brotherhood, Code Geass, Konosuba, Attack On Titan, My Hero Academia, Kill La Kill, FLCL, Cowboy Bebop, Samurai Champloo, Madoka Magica

Music is where this gets complicated. I LOVE music. Most music. Most all music. Its too hard to list bands, but some of my favorite genres are swing (20s 30s 40s stuff), shoegazing shit, folk, metal (from the classics to the extreme), some select country, jazz, avant-garde, progressive, punk, electronica, trance, noise, video game music, some rap & hip hop, and a plethora of others. I also am an unashamed advocate of Kanye West. He's deeper than he seems. I'm always looking for new stuff, so any suggestions welcome

Conspiracies seldomly
Words in general.
Sex in general.
Mike Patton.
The fact that I just listed Mike Patton directly after sex. Weird, but appropriate.
The Marvel universe.
On a typical Friday night I am
Hopefully something interesting. Going out with friends, playing music, perhaps reading. Often a concert. Hopefully something memorable with memorable people. Come join!
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I really wish I could be even more direct than I already am.

I don't drive. I live near the city and public transportation has been enough for me thus far, but I'll have a car in the near future.
You should message me if
You can appreciate differing points of view. You are an unconventional free thinker. You want to enjoy the guaranteed present. You enjoy exploring the planet. You play music. You want to listen to music and just laze around, you care about music, you are literate to a higher degree perhaps,. If you despise being a sheep, you want to cosplay with me. You play Super Smash Brothers. You like to do stuff. You know the difference between real feminism and the radical hogwash that has usurped it.

If we have similar values, that would be ideal, though I'm not expecting much :'D

Do not message me if;

You are misandrist (wasn't going to put this, but a profile here proudly proclaimed it and that ticked me off) do not value differences of of opinion, philosophical conversation or intelligent discourse along with troll random humor, you can't take a joke, you are too politically correct for your own good, you never want to go out and see the world. You think safe spaces are a good thing for society at large
The two of us
