My self-summary
I'm a 6'1 Dorothy on the streets, and an equally tall Blanche in the sheets. Proud dog parent, pro-choice and pro-selfie

My favourite superhero is Captain America; we're both handsome bisexuals with great hair.

Also, sapiosexuality isn't real. It's eugenics for pretentious fops.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm an illustrator, baseball player and human rights advocate.

Currently working for a well known NGO. I love it.
I’m really good at
-Not sleeping.

-Being too legit to quit.

-I also feel I have a talent of figuring out ways Carl Weathers should be cast in movies. (why couldn't he have played Jor-El in Man of Steel? Answers that don't make you sound like a racist on a postcard)

-Talking to old people. I had do some research about nursing homes, and was kindly welcomed in by a few, as long I mucked in and helped out. Man, old people are awesome, even the ones who forget to wear trousers or the borderline white supremacists. Well, the racist ones aren't that great, in fairness.

-I'm also really fucking good at being modest.
The first things people usually notice about me
People hear me before they see me. I have no indoor voice. Also, I really hope they notice my hair.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Favourite book is too hard, but my favourite writer is easy peasy, Terry Pratchett. But I'll give it the old college try anyway. Redefining Realness, The Graveyard Book, The Yiddish Policeman's Union, Summerland, Guards! Guards!, Witches Abroad, White TeethCatcher in the Rye, The Bad Guys Won, Moneyball, I Know Why The Caged Bird Sings, Three Nights in October, Night Games, That is All.

Movies: MAD MAX: FURY ROAD, Sister Act, Sister Act 2: Back in the Habit, Drop Dead Gorgeous, Back to The Future, This is Spinal Tap, Thelma and Louise, Raiders of the Lost Ark, Monsters Inc, The Royal Tenenbaums, Seven, The Apartment The Departed, Some Like it Hot, Captain America; The Winter Soldier. I will watch any film that was directed by a woman and/ or features a Black President of the Untied States.

Shows: Parks and Recreation, OITNB (More like Piper is the New Larry, AMIRITE?), Brooklyn 99,Person of Interest, The Good Wife, Elementary, Nashville, Call The Midwife, Last Tango in Halifax, Happy Valley, The Flash and Arrow are the shows I am watching currently.

My favourite shows of all time are either a toss up between Arrested Development, Friday Night Lights, Father Ted, Cheers, Buffy,The Golden Girls, Murder She Wrote, and the West Wing. PLEASE DON'T MAKE ME CHOOSE.

Music: Led Zeppelin, FKA Twigs, Jurassic 5, AC/DC, The Beastie Boys, MetallicA, Beyoncé, M.I.A., Adam Warrock, Janelle Monáe, Tony Bennet, The Be Good Tanyas, Frank Ocean, Friends, Jay-Z, PJ Harvey, God is an Astronaut, Nicki Minaj, Theories Divide.

I think I can find joy in any piece of music where it's super clear the artists doing it are loving what they are doing. That's how I got into hip hop.It was clear that Jurassic 5 and the Beasties were having an amazing time in the recording booth and that really shows.
The six things I could never do without
The internet or access to information (or gifs of bears waving)

Sketchbook and paper.

My Family, friends and my dog (Feel weird calling them things)

High fives. People might say I high five people too much to which I say, they don't high five people enough.

My catcher's mitt and a baseball.

Headphones. Even with no music, I can still ignore / avoid people on the bus.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
One of my favourite singers is Tony Bennett; he served in WW2. How many people did the dude who sung "I left my heart in San Fransisco" kill?

Why don't we have more comics where Batman fights Deathstroke?

What my dog is thinking is about. And what all dogs are thinking about, really.
On a typical Friday night I am
Generally swinging between buildings, looking for crimes in progress, and hoping my crime fighting won't interfere with my personal life, which it almost always does. Damn that Parker luck!!

Oh, sorry, that's Spider-Man, not me.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
There was almost an Irish version of Jackass and I was the Johnny Knoxville, or I least I thought I was. I was probably the Bam Margera.

I also used to be MUCH heavier and I'm trying to get down to a non life endangering weight by using the new fad diet of eating less and exercising more.
You should message me if
I generally won't respond to messages to that aren't longer than a sentence. Unless that sentence is
"I've ordered too much pizza and I need your help."

Also, not willing to lie about how we met. It's Twenty fucking Fifteen.

While I'm a cis man and I'm in no position to police someone's feminism, I don't want to talk to anyone whose feminism isn't intersectional. Especially when it comes to trans women. So yeah.

Don't contact me if you think it's ok to call yourself a Grammar Nazi. Come on. It's not cute to feel superior because you know when to use whom instead of who. You're basically throwing people who speak English as a second Language under the bus. Those people almost definitely speak more languages than you so sssshhh. Never mind the fact you're gleefully pissing all over people with learning difficulties who could never grasp one of the most complex languages in the world. GOOD JOB. And how dare you trivialize one of the most horrific regimes in history because you know when to use a semi colon. So instead of calling yourself a grammarn*zi, just do yourself and the world a favour and say what you truly are; A Pedantic Asshole with a Superiority Complex.
