I have a somewhat morbid sense of humor and believe that if you cannot laugh at yourself then you have issues. I'm pretty straight forward and tend to say what is on my mind rather than what people want to hear. Not saying that I am a jerk but lying to people does not usually end well.
Books: Sci-Fi, Military History, Military fiction and Non-Fiction. I'll read pretty much anything though.
Movies: Aliens, Shaun of the Dead, 28 Days/Weeks Later, LoTR, Some Kind of Wonderful, Dangerous Liaisons, Just about anything from Horror to Chick Flicks.
Music: VNV Nation, Combichrist, Funker Vogt, Wolfsheim, Depeche Mode, Abba, Ministry, Human League, Irish Folk, Middle Eastern, Polka, pretty much listen to everything.
Conversation Starters (i.e. what you'd like to do on a first date...)
Meet for coffee or drinks to see if there is a mutual interest.
