My self-summary
I've lived in Arizona for nearly all of my life, and have been in the Bay Area for about two years now. My job moved here, so I moved with it. It's a big change for sure, and for the most part I'm enjoying it. Gas is much more expensive...along with everything else. And it's colder. Wearing a jacket in June was definitely different. And what is all this water that's been falling from the sky? Is that supposed to happen?

I'm definintely a nerd, and damned proud of it! Most people who know me will tell you I'm one of the nicest guys on the planet. I'm usually pretty quiet, though that can change based on the situation and/or blood-alcohol content. :) I also have a very strange sense of humor and am dripping with sarcasm, which comes out at the most random, unexpected moments. You have been warned.
What I’m doing with my life
Trying to enjoy it, and usually succeeding.

I'm working for a small computer company. We'll see how much longer that lasts. There have been layoffs and pay cuts all around lately. Hopefully I can get off this ship before it sinks.

I've also spent some of my spare time doing humorous reviews of horrible movies, and judging by the reaction so far, I'm fairly good at it. If you feel like checking out my work, it's at or
I’m really good at
getting theatrical productions canceled, apparently. I don't actually try to get them canceled. But it appears that my showing interest in them dooms them. Thankfully that didn't happen when Spamalot came to SF, though an understudy did have to step in for John Hurley as King Arthur. So I didn't doom the entire show this time, just the lead. I've always been good with music, and proudly admit that I was once a band nerd. (And this one time, at band camp...) Of course I'm good at fixing computers, or I wouldn't be able to keep my job. Good skill to have, but it does mean that I'm the one my friends always come to when they have computer troubles. I am doomed to be the digital messiah, I guess.
The first things people usually notice about me
Probably how quiet I am. But this doesn't really apply when I'm drunk and/or watching the Suns/Wildcats during the playoffs, assuming they actually make the playoffs in the first place (2012 was not a good year, 2013's not looking much better). I've been told I have pretty eyes and a nice ass. Judge for yourself, I guess.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: Hitchiker's Guide to the Galaxy, Lord of the Rings...that's about it. Oh sure, I've read books other than those, but rarely by choice. It was typically school mandated. I'm not a big reader, though I'm slowly trying to fix that. Recently read The Hunger Games, it was okay. Abraham Lincoln Vampire Hunter was awesome!
Movies: same as the above books, along with Star Wars, Super Troopers (Littering and...), anything Monty Python, Serenity, Tarantino movies, Batman Begins, The Dark Knight (Why so serious?), Captain America, Iron Man, The Princess Bride, Mel Brooks films, Fight Club, Star Trek II: Wrath of Khan (I'm not a trekkie, but it's a great sci-fi movie), Miyazaki films, Scott Pilgrim, Back To The Future, Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz, The Avengers
Music: I mostly listen to metal, though I can usually tolerate anything except country, techno, and most modern punk. Some of my favorites: Black Sabbath, Ozzy Osbourne, Tool, Iron Maiden, Metallica (pre-"Load"), Dream Theater, Megadeth, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Children of Bodom, Dethklok, Flogging Molly, Lamb of God, Weird Al Yankovic, Austrian Death Machine, In Flames
Food: Mexican, Italian, Chinese...I'll eat almost anything really. I'm not picky. Except when it comes to pizza toppings. I don't like pepperoni. How weird is that?
Shows: Firefly, MXC, Robot Chicken, Metalocalypse (in case listing Dethklok under music didn't give that away), Red Dwarf (it's back! and it's good again!), Black Adder, Fawlty Towers, and other examples of British humor (or I guess that should be "humour"), The Ultimate Fighter, Invader Zim, Family Guy, Mythbusters, Dirty Jobs, The Big Bang Theory, Dragon Ball (including Z (Kai), NOT including GT), Sgt. Frog, Avatar: The Last Airbender, Legend of Korra (although the end of Book One sucked), Doctor Who (new and classic)
Six things I could never do without
Friends, family, my car (it's a gutless wonder, but I feel very strange without it), my computer, my sense of humor, and my smartphone (finally got with the times and ditched the "feature phone")
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Mixed martial arts (UFC, Strikeforce, that sort of thing). I love my combat sports, and I hope to catch a Strikeforce show sometime since they're based in San Jose and apparently just got a TV deal.
Music. It's always been a big part of my life. I try to go to concerts whenever I have the chance.
Video games. This has also been a big part of my life for years, but it doesn't consume it. I do actually see the sun once in a while. :)
The stupid things me and my friends have done, which usually involve fire or beer in large quantities (never both at the same time, that's just asking for an ambulance ride).
People who think allowing homosexuals to marry will somehow ruin the sanctity of their own marriage. It still boggles my mind how any sane person can arrive at this conclusion. If a relationship between two consenting adults that you have never met and likely never will meet hurts the sanctity of your marriage, your marriage never had any sanctity to begin with. Get the fuck over it, live your own life, and let others do the same, kthxbye.
Wow, did that sound as angry as I thought it did?
People that enjoy Twilight (non-ironically). I haven't read the books, but I have seen (and reviewed) the movies. It's one thing if you're a teenager and like it, since they're young and have no taste. We've all been there. But if you're a grown adult you have no excuse, unless you watch it for the unintentional comedy.
On a typical Friday night I am
Probably at the gym. I'm sure that doesn't sound terribly exciting, but hey, it's less crowded on Friday.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I watch professional wrestling...well, I used to anyway. I'm not into it nearly as much as I used to be. Not sure what killed the magic, although so many wrestlers dying way too young may have been a factor.
You should message me if
Obviously, if you saw something you liked before you scrolled down to this part. Beyond that...

-you enjoy going to concerts (especially the type I can headbang to, but as I said I can enjoy other stuff too).

-you know a good place for rock climbing, or just want to try it out. I used to go to an indoor climbing gym in AZ all the time, but I've done it exactly once since coming to the Bay. I kinda miss it.

-you don't smoke. If you're just looking for a friend, not a big deal. But if you're looking for a date, I'm afraid this is a deal breaker. Smokers taste terrible.
