My self-summary
Jaded idealist, looking for wise souls or holy fools.

Slowly learning how to treat myself better. Trying to make myself work a little less.

Love food and drinks and games and trying to get my favorite journalists to like my clever replies to their work on Twitter. Getting back into working out, and trying to decide if I'm enough over the trauma of middle school gym to take exercise classes.

Finally, succinctly, importantly, I have good credit and bad habits.
What I’m doing with my life
Working in digital marketing as a data strategist. Living amongst the Uzbeks and Hasidim of Ocean Parkway in Kensington and pining for a dramatically early retirement.
I’m really good at
Perceiving, cooking, making random friends, math, reading, 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 me to). Joined a book club to help get back to being a more active reader.

GAMES: This isn't part of the prompt, but I am an avid gamer when I have time to kill. 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 as long as they require as much strategy as luck. Let's play, as long as you don't mind putting up a fierce fight.

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. Lately digging Adventure Time, Archer, and Bob's Burgers too.

MUSIC: I'm not a "shuffle" guy. More interested in listening to full albums from my faves most of the time. Easier to learn the words so I can sing along.

The Cardigans are probably my favorite band of all time. I've been obsessed with Tame Impala, Beach House, Belle & Sebastian, Camera Obscura, and Neko Case lately. Before that it was non-stop Queen, Fleetwood Mac, and Joni Mitchell. Previous obsessions include: tUnE-yArDs, Deerhoof, Sufjan Stevens, Erykah Badu, Stereolab, Jens Lekman, Mirah, Portishead, Fleet Foxes, and Nellie McKay.

FOOD: Yes, please. Pass the butter. I won't order dessert usually, but I'm happy to help you finish yours.
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, 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
Sometimes it feels like I know nothing (some Buzzfeed quiz told me that my GoT character is Jon Snow, which was flattering and also annoying), but I am pretty sure that most cultural authorities have no idea what they're doing either.

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.
The two of us
