My self-summary
Simply, to summarize myself would take far too long and would involve too many pages of text (and a 9pt font at that). I'm verbose and can be quite rambling, and yet, at the same time, I don't talk much.
I enjoy learning and the accumulation of knowledge, or at least, the accumulation of theories but that's an existential distinction I won't go into here.
Who else am I? A hopeless romantic with delusions of grandeur, while still wanting to remain relatively anonymous. Oh, I can also be paradoxal, but in this age of boundless information and pseudo-human contact, it's bound to happen. But I think the easiest way to state that is, I am a cynical-optimist.
Oh, one more thing. I have a list of about 50 countries I want to visit before I croak, and at some point, I do plan on just jumping in my car and heading out to get lost in the great wild wilderness of the territory. Basically, I have big ideas for big adventures that I'm building toward. Haha.
I’m really good at
I'm really good at listening, being a loyal friend (to a fault) (oh, and on the subject of To A Fault, being honest)... Rambling about whatever may be on my mind, like to the point that it could be a fault, but that's neither here nor there... I'm also really good at using the ellipse and parenthesis when talking.
However, I'm also pretty decent at writing, at being a writer, weaving fun little intricate tales and stories (mostly short to not-so-short fiction as of late)...
The first things people usually notice about me
My quiet nature paired with my verbosity. In a group of people, I will sit back and listen and observe the people and their dynamics, at least until I'm comfortable enough to talk (assuming this is a group where I only know a couple people) more openly.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Favorite books? That'd be like picking a favorite child. But maybe I can whittle it down to a top ten kind of thing. American Gods by Neil Gaiman; Paper Towns by John Green; Innocence by Jane Mendelsohn (for a lot of reasons); Survivor by Chuck Palanhiuk; Lord of the Rings, JRR Tolkien; A Clockwork Orange, Anthony Burgess; IT, Stephen King; Thus Spake Zarathustra, Nietzsche; To Kill a Mockingbird, Catcher in the Rye and... anything by Hunter S Thompson...

Movies, my second love... Another need for a Top Ten list, I'm afraid, but this one should be a bit easier. Metropolis (hands down my number one film of all time), Citizen Kane, Batman Begins, Yojimbo, Dr Strangelove, Rear Window, the original Star Wars Trilogy, Coraline, Ghostbusters, Lost Highway and Mulholland Drive...

I don't watch a lot of television, but I do have a strange love for Sherlock, Doctor Who, Torchwood, and an even stranger love for Psych.

Music. Impossible to even begin to explain, I love music, and without it, I would be lost, but you know... Tom Waits, Nick Cave, Led Zeppelin, Saul Williams, The Dresden Dolls, Jane's Addiction, Nine Inch Nails, Tool, APC, Chopin, Mozart, Beethoven, Robert Johnson, Jack Johnson, Buddy Guy, etc...
Six things I could never do without
Music, movies, books, art, writing, a good news feed, computer
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Idiosyncrasies, philosophies, human rights, The World, abstractions, and a host of other things that more or less defy definition or specification. Ie, I spend a lot of time thinking about most everything.
On a typical Friday night I am
Usually, writing or trying to, or just spending time at home.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
That I have no secrets, only answers to questions that have not been asked.
You should message me if
If you're curious, intrigued, confused, or just want to.
The two of us
