My self-summary
Hey there, fellow profile-skimmers! I'm a fairly quiet man, rather easy-going unless I hit on something that really interests me. Still, when I get going I can get pretty engaging: I can talk about near anything, and listen even better. I believe you should learn something on a good date, about the date, yourself and the world at large. I'm not looking for anything serious at the moment, and I'm just trying this out. I think I'm built for romance and monogamy though, so something growing out of this is a definite possibility.

I also have no idea what on earth is going on with my "personality" tag.
What I’m doing with my life
Going into my last year of University in Guelph, may go overseas and teach English once I finish. I will probably go into copywriting, although I'm good enough with the physical sciences to do technical writing as well. I hope to one day write fiction, but that falls by the wayside more than I would like. Made some real strides lately though.
I’m really good at
the English language: I can talk, write and parse with the best of them. So I'm really good at communicating, defusing conflict and getting on people's good side. Beyond that I'm good at knuckling under and getting something done without complaint: a job's gotta get done.
The first things people usually notice about me
Well, my profile picture shows off my eyes pretty well. Beyond that, I do have a lot of people tell me how smart I sound when I first meet them, no matter how much I try to hide it. Still, once the initial shyness rubs off I am garrulous, witty and very charming. I also feel weird self-cheerleading like this, ick.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: huge Cormac McCarthy fan, still plowing through Infinite Jest. Love Kurt Vonnegut. Have a soft spot for Frank Herbert, Fyodor Dostoevsky, Junot Diaz. Nick cave is surprisingly good.
Also let me tell you about GENE MOTHERFUCKING WOLFE (do not under any circumstances allow me to tell you about Gene Wolfe for the love of God)

Movies: Lawrence of Arabia, Dr Strangelove, Robocop. Unconditional love of Nicolas Cage, official diagnosis is pending with my psychiatrist over that one.

Shows: Breaking Bad, for the most part. I tend to do the DVD binge thing, I suppose I'm just impatient by nature. Student life doesn't lend itself well to television, sad to saw.

Music: Huge Nick Cave fan, have inordinate fondness for 80's heavy metal and N.W.A/Death Row style gangster rap. Love punk, especially Iggy Pop and the Stooges. I'll honestly listen to anything, I'm a firm believer that any genre is an acquirable taste.

Food: I'm kind of quick and dirty about my food, but every so often I spluge and make something really good. Dates are a wonderful motivator that way.
Six things I could never do without
1) My family and friends
2) Good books
3) Music of all kinds
4) Indoor plumbing
5) Lacking self-awareness of my dance skills
6) The ability to get wild once and a while
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Life, the universe and everything. The inner workings of art and how it comes to be how it is, where our society is going. I dwell on a lot of stuff, high and lowbrow. How I'm going to go about my next run through Dark Souls, for example.
On a typical Friday night I am
Taking it easy. On a memorable Friday night however, things are very different.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Look, it's the era of Trump. We're all going to die, might as well have sex in the meantime.
You should message me if
you want to cross the ol' Rubicon, cast some die and see what happens. Only instead of conquering Rome and ruining democracy for everybody, you're meeting a pleasant dude with a wicked sense of humour for coffee and knowing that you're getting out and meeting new people. I am told that these are roughly equivalent, but in retrospect that date did go quite poorly.
The two of us
