I love always absorbing new information. I avidly enjoy listening to history podcasts, going down the Wikipedia rabbit hole, and watching random documentaries to learn as much about as many things as possible. I play a lot of history-based games like Civilization and Europa Universalis and love using them as a jumping-point for learning more. So basically if you're on here not for dating but just to find a pub trivia partner, I'm your man.
I love discovering new films (Netflix and Doug Loves Movies were made for me) and new music (college radio alum!), playing instruments, and tabletop boardgaming. I'm pretty into sports and every Kennedy ever.
Movies: When Netflixin', I usually search for "quirky." Wes Anderson, Duncan Jones, Woody Allen, Michel Gondy, Terry Gilliam, Sam Raimi. A recent film I enjoyed was Ex Machina.
Television: Hannibal, Agents of SHIELD, Futurama, Boston Legal, Twin Peaks, Freaks and Geeks, Arrested Development House of Cards, Game of Thrones, Veep, The Blacklist, Doctor Who, The Amazing Race, The West Wing, Mythbusters, random history things
Music: David Bowie, Weezer, Talking Heads, Oingo Boingo, The Smiths, Radiohead, Nirvana, Muse, Beck. I'm really into alt rock and New Wave.
I usually listen to music as album. The album I keep playing on repeat lately is Rilo Kiley's The Execution of All Things.
Here's my a link to my last.fm profile if you're interested.
Food: Pizza Hut recently released a pizza with a pretzel crust. My life was made.
- Did studying Mandarin for two years help me better understand Firefly?
- Did Zach Braff make Garden State just as an excuse to release his mixtape to the masses?
- Would the NSA employee reading my profile and Google search history be interested in drinks this Saturday night?
Lafayette is my historical man crush.
