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
What I’m doing with my life
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 apsiring 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, Kevin Smith, 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, Big Bang, 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, Kill La Kill, FLCL, Cowboy Bebop, Samurai Champloo

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), folk, metal (from the classics to the extreme), country, jazz, avant-garde, progressive, punk, electronica, trance, noise, video game music, some rap & hip hop, and a plethora of others. I'm always looking for new stuff, so any suggestions welcome

Some examples: Deftones, Townes Van Zandt, Type O Negative, Tom Waits, Faith No More, Mr. Bungle, Zac Brown Band, Incubus, Circa Survive, Coheed & Cambria, Aesop Rock, Interpol, Devin Townsend, Pink Floyd, Thelonious Monk, Pokey LaFarge, Death Cab For Cutie, Bright Eyes, Leonard Cohen, Baroness, Opeth, Boris, The Matches, Eyedea, Aesop Rock, MF Doom, Converge, Stone Sour, Trampled By Turtles, The Devil Makes Three, Flogging Molly

The fact that I just listed Mike Patton directly after sex. Weird, but appropriate.

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 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.

Do not message me if;

You 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.
