I'm kind of shy when surrounded by strangers but am very outgoing once I know somebody. I have a fairly dry sense of humor, but I make jokes of all types and love to laugh.
I love art, nature, and beauty of all kinds, but I'm addicted to music and film. I also love to read, but don't always find the time.
I make music, but I don't know if that's what I want to really do. I also occasionally write, and have been known to make a short film or two.
I'm an INTJ, which means a lot of things, but basically: in person, I will almost never talk to a stranger first, I like having plans, I look stoic a lot, and I think far too much.

Video Games - In the last couple of years I've realized this is a medium capable of the same heights of expression as any other form. I'm super into narrative and experimentation, but pure gameplay can hook me too. I'm not into Halo, or whatever the mainstream stereotype of video games is. I've been playing a lot of indie games the last year (which aren't necessarily listed here). Bioshock & Bioshock Infiinte, Fallout 3, Grand Theft Auto IV & V, Civilization (III & V), Starcraft, Diablo, Hotline Miami, The Walking Dead (Telltale), Bastion, Portal & Portal 2, Red Dead Redemption, LA Noire, Flower, Journey, Metal Gear Solid I-IV
Podcasts - I've been listening to a fair amounts of these lately, adding a good dose of comedy to my life. Here are my favorites: Comedy Bang Bang, How Did this Get Made?, The Flophouse, Filmspotting, The Bugle, Professor Blastoff, Improv4Humans, Giant Bombcast, Cane & Rinse, The Indoor Kids, Doug Loves Movies
2. iPod (or some way of listening to music)
Also, my only irrational fear is of death, but then again that might be rational.
You want to start a shoegaze band with me.
