My self-summary
Oh no! Look behind you! There's a Yeti!

I'm a shortish white male of the stocky, northern European, get me a hat if I'm going to be in the sun, variety. I don't like wearing shoes, and I look really (ok, relatively) good when I get dressed up in a suit. Why? Because when you spend your days in t-shirt and shorts just putting on a button-down shirt makes people say "damn!".

I love reading, music, and I like to cook. My banana bread rules, but only because I can follow the Cook's Illustrated recipe. I can also prepare an entire Thanksgiving dinner without burning most of it.

I spend most of my time working, reading subversive websites, watching movies and reading books.
What I’m doing with my life
Working towards my eventual escape from this particular tax farm.
I’m really good at
Nothing practical. I mentioned the cooking. I still need a recipe to follow, but I'm getting better about that. A real cook can take whatever is around and make something edible.

Actually, my code is pretty tight, I read well, and I usually speaks good too.
The first things people usually notice about me
I have been told that I have pretty eyes. Not in a prison context. I have squealed like a pig though. Not in a "Deliverance" context.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I hate questions like this. The following are examples:

Mostly science fiction/fantasy.

Books I can read over and over (again, examples only):
Most things Pratchett.
L. Ron Hubbard's "Mission Earth" series. (I am not a Scientologist, and had never even heard of Scientology until long after reading this series.)
The Lord of the Rings (I'll admit it, I've even read The Silmarillion)
A Confederacy of Dunces

Political Books/Essays I REALLY like:
For A New Liberty
"The Constitution of No Authority"
Democracy, The God That Failed.

Movies (I can't stress enough that these are only examples):
All of "The Man With No Name" flicks.
Pulp Fiction (I took a girl to see this once and she walked out in the first 15 minutes. *sniff* Such a loss.)
The Godfather movies (except the POS Sophia Coppola directed. She made it up with her later films though so I'm not going to bad-mouth her)
The Princess Bride
Better Off Dead
Street Trash
50 First Dates (I'm not kidding.)

Shows (I can live without most TV):
The Boondocks
The Venture Brothers
(do you sense a theme?)

Music (this one is difficult):
The Dead Boys
Pink Floyd
The Monkeywrench
Slim Cessna's Auto Club
Nouvelle Vague
Willie Nelson
Bud E. Love
Oxford Camerata
Julie London
Ace Cannon
The Pandoras
The Ventures
Iron Maiden
Anything Amanda Palmer does
(pick a genre, there's probably something I like)

Nepalese (holy crap! It's like a combination of Chinese and's bitchen!)
(I'm going to stop now, I'll eat anything. I have eaten deep fried maggots. I've had worse things.)
Six things I could never do without
Indoor plumbing (you keep your iPhone and dysentery, I'll keep my running water)
Good Food
I spend a lot of time thinking about
I think way too much about the economy and politics. It's like a scab I can't stop picking at. Luckily, thinking about it means I'm not usually talking about it so that saves people quite a bit of annoyance.
On a typical Friday night I am
Doing the same thing I did on Thursday night. The fun stuff happens on Saturday like roasting pigs, playing poker, watching movies with friends.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I always get teary eyed at the end of 50 First Dates.
You should message me if
You're not exactly what people would call normal. Or you think we'd get along.
The two of us
