My self-summary
Hey boys. I'm a reformed hipster with a good job, long term financial goals, good friends, and my own studio in a slightly unsexy part of town. Looking for great guys who are funny, grounded, and ambitious. Knowing how to have fun on a budget is a huge turn-on too. Let's compare hang-ups and see if they cancel eachother out!

Love cooking and drinks and gaming and trying to get my favorite journalists to like my clever replies on Twitter. Finally getting back into working out, and only succeeding because I'm prepping coffee protein shakes on the weekend and then feeling obligated to use them.

Just so we're clear I smoke a few cigarettes every day so if that's a dealbreaker let's save ourselves a little time.
What I’m doing with my life
Working in social/digital marketing intelligence and strategy. Living amongst the Uzbeks and Hasidim of Ocean Parkway in Kensington and saving aggressively for an early retirement.
I’m really good at
Perceiving, cooking, making random friends, math, reading, writing, empathy, video games, singing, waiting tables, making people feel at ease, snarkiness, making lists of short phrases
The first things people usually notice about me
Absurdly tall, and I've been told I have a very welcoming energy. Also, the blonde hair and blue eyes.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
BOOKS: I like very long and quite serious literature from the 19th century as a general preference (I could speak to you about George Eliot for hours, but I don't think you'd want that). These days I'm drifting into fantasy novels whenever I pick up a book.

GAMES: This isn't part of the prompt, but I'm a dedicated gamer when I have time. Love RPGs and strategy games, but great platformers and fighting games are right up my alley too (beating me at Smash Brothers or Street Fighter is the fastest way to my heart). Also love board and card games of all varieties.

MOVIES: Give me something to think about and gripping experiences, and I'll enjoy it -- if it features weeping elderly people or exploding helicopters, doesn't really matter. Also, I like porn, but not too much.

SHOWS: The Simpsons allowed me to form a tolerable personality. Love Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Game of Thrones, Veep. I can't get enough of Tina Fey or Amy Poehler or RuPaul. Obviously Samantha Bee and Stephen Colbert. I watched Sealab 2021 in its original run and it had an outsized impact on me.

MUSIC: All time faves are definitely Bjork, The Cardigans, Belle and Sebastian, Neko Case. I've been obsessed with Tame Impala, Beach House, Rilo Kiley, The New Pornographers, Unknown Mortal Orchestra, M. Ward, and Camera Obscura lately. Before that it was non-stop Queen, Fleetwood Mac, and Joni Mitchell. A brief list of others: tUnE-yArDs, The Zombies, Deerhoof, Sufjan Stevens, En Vogue, Erykah Badu, Stereolab, Jens Lekman, Mirah, Portishead, Fleet Foxes, and Nellie McKay. Beatles and Beach Boys and Blondie and Beyonce for obvious reasons. For classical and jazz, Chopin, Ravel, Beethoven, Gershwin, Holiday, Glenn Miller, and fuckin Nobuo Uematsu (if you know this reference you should probably say hi). From my choir nerd days, Eric Whitacre, CV Stanford, The Real Group.

FOOD: Yes, please. Pass the butter. Love eating healthy but also indulge the urge for pasta early and often. Not a big sweet tooth guy.

I love cooking like a prosperous peasant. Sunday is stew day most of the time if I'm not roasting a chicken or making a bolognese baked with mozzarrella.
Six things I could never do without
Being Seated
Being Unseated
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Income inequality, queer theory, my lovably dysfunctional family, psychological astrology, scientific astronomy, personal investment strategy, agnostic spirituality, white male privilege, the decline and fall of western civilization, how to get citizenship somewhere that's colder and more socialist.
On a typical Friday night I am
Low-key night out with friends (but maybe I should start going out dancing again lol idk kill me). Some reasonable quantity of whiskey is pretty much always involved.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
On a mission to figure out what my real goals in life are, and actively working on not stressing myself out that I haven't figured them out yet!

I am a dabbling astrologer who looks at it as a tool for personal development, and I'm interested in some esoteric stuff like tarot. Even if you don't buy it, I hope that you can respect my interest in it. Always looking for the right spiritual direction.
You should message me if
You are brave and thoughtful and truthful.

You like long make-out sessions before the clothes even start to come off.
