My self-summary
Hey! I'm Spencer. I'm super friendly, energetic, and distractible. I like to overanalyze things, jump to conclusions, and argue about the artfulness of video games, often using 8x10 color glossy photographs with circles an arrows.

My interests range all the way across the board but have a tendency to clump in the geekier end of the spectrum (i.e. comic books, boardgames, all of the science, and Terry Pratchett). On a more active note (but not too active) I also love skiing, biking, sailing (on other people's boats), dancing (swing and blues mostly), and parenthesis.

Like everyone else in this city, I'm a Software Engineer. Unlike everyone else in this city, I'm from New York, which, in my humble and totally 100% unbiased opinion, makes me a better person. I've been out here for a few months now but I'm still pretty jaded about all of my New York things including pizza, bagels, public transportation, and 24 hour diners. If you were to introduce me to a solid slice of plain pizza, I might fall in love on the spot, no questions asked (of the pizza). I think it's cute how pedestrians out here wait for the light to turn and I haven't figured out what the big deal is with the space needle.
What I’m doing with my life
Unlocking the secrets of the universe, building a kickass data platform, and makin' new friends
I’m really good at
Drawing absurd connections between books, movies, tv, music, and other forms of media that aren't remotely related to each other
The first things people usually notice about me
My crazy [awesome] curly hair
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
A Canticle for Leibowitz is my latest 'favorite book ever'. I've had a few before it like Good Omens, Boomsday, and for a super long time, The Martian Chronicles. Favorite authors include Terry Pratchett, Neil Gaiman, Ray Bradbury, Ursula Le Guinn, John Le Carre. Right now, I'm reading Kafka on the Shore by Haruki Murakami, and it's my first Murakami!

Venture Bros, Frisky Dingo, Archer, Adventure Time, Breaking Bad, Sherlock, Luther, the IT Crowd, and Joss Whedon are some other things that I love. I have a complicated love/hate relationship with Girls. Brazil, Time Bandits, Best In Show, Death at a Funeral, Zoolander, and Tropic Thunder are a few of my favorite movies.

Like any good geek, I've read and watched Game of Thrones (if you haven't read it, you really should!). Star Wars, the Hobbit, Dune, and Rugrats were all profoundly influential during my formative years.

I listen to a lot of underground hiphop these days. Aesop Rock is still probably my favorite, but I'm really impressed with Chance's mixtape so we'll see where that goes. But really I listen to just about everything else as well and I fucking love London Calling (perfect album), David Bowie, the Grateful Dead, Elvis Costello and way too many others http://www.last.fm/user/spooch56

I eat pizza, bagels, dim sum, and most of everything else (but not usually pizza-bagels)
Six things I could never do without
Moving to Seattle has made me rethink what's important in my life. As it turns out, I'm perfectly capable of surviving without pizza and bagels but I'm rather bitter about it. I still need my buddies, my books, and my laptop because I'm a slave to technology
I spend a lot of time thinking about
New and creative ways to say 'fuck the gender binary'
On a typical Friday night I am
Hangin out with friends. Whether it's board games, drinking, seeing a show... whatever it is, it's no fun to do it alone (especially drinking)
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I am the Bat.
You should message me if
You've got a brain in your head and really anything in common with me. Or not. I thrive on learning new things and meeting new people so if you think you're interesting and can talk excitedly about it, then I'll probably agree. I'm still fairly new in town and I'm more or less down to meet up, make new friends, relationships, and/or bitter rivals
The two of us
