I'm a lifelong, impulsive world traveler and like to drag unwitting souls along with me. I've lived in a couple of boring European countries and dream of ditching it all to do language preservation work in Central America. Somehow I ended up in Minnesota after living in the San Francisco Bay Area for a while - not sure how that happened or whether I'm fully on board with it.
I'm married to a shy, meditative homebody who is happy for me to have outgoing female friends. And no, not poly or "ethically nonmonogamous" or whatever the hip kids call it these days. I don't want to have sex with you. Really. But I will happily help you find the next great grungy taqueria - if such a thing even exists in Minnesota, see your band (or someone else's), day drink, go running - I'm not picky.

Music: I listen to a lot of electronic/IDM like Boards of Canada, Tycho, Aphex Twin. In a previous phase of existence, I was in a noise-rock/stoner metal band, and I truly love stoner metal (Pelican, Kyuss, Sleep) and stuff like The Sword or Black Sabbath. I can keep it to the car or headphones, though.
Books: I was a German Lit major as an undergrad and will go toe-to-toe with any English or Classics major. I read constantly, but authors at the tippy-top include: David Foster Wallace, Donna Tartt, George Saunders, and Gary Shteyngart.
Movies: mostly documentaries. Cheesy action flicks are fine, too.

You would like to hit Zooey Deschanel with a shovel.
You're serious about meeting in person for a Manhattan, beer, etc. and just looking for people to hang with. Or go to Iceland with.
