Usually this is pretty easy, but late-20s ennui has me a little flummoxed.

Hi, I’m Jeremy and I am a proud geek (hi Jeremy, welcome to Crunch!).  I own Tron and a big flat screen TV, I have a blog.  I also love to cook, and try out new recipes and such.

My passion is information.  I can’t get enough, and I guess that makes me a true consumer.  I read, subscribe to way too many RSS feeds, inhale new music and new ideas.  If this sounds familiar to you, I’d love to hear about what’s piquing your interest.

I make a living in the online sector of the music industry trying to make what we do as a major label a little less evil, a little more interesting and transparent, and a little easier to get behind.  Sometimes I fear I’m too late to change perception.

As far as physical characteristics, I’m 6’1 and cuddly (i.e. not a skinny guy but not huge either) with glasses.  People seem to think I have pretty eyes.  I’m a Jew by birth, but other than the penchant for self-deprecating humor and latkes, I’m not particularly religious.  I tend to wear button-down shirts (or t-shirts) and jeans, so I’m not particularly identified with any subculture (although I used to be pretty involved with the local goth scene in my youth as a club goer, promoter and DJ.  I look hot in eyeliner).

Somehow between working long hours, spending a lot of time online and having a bunch of friends move elsewhere in the country, I’ve managed to build a nice little insular life for myself.  I’m now totally sick of my nice little insular life and would like to invite some people into it.

As far as what I’m looking for, I don’t necessarily have a particular type.  I tend to gravitate toward whip-smart brunettes with wicked senses of humor and glasses (yes, I have a thing for Lisa Loeb).   I don’t want to be a project for anyone, and I don’t have the time for projects.

I like conversations that sound like Aaron Sorkin scripts.

My musical and movie tastes are all over the board.  My top 10 albums of 2007 includes Crowded House, Burial and Spoon.  My DVD collection contains both When Harry Met Sally and Terminator 2.

Anyway, if you’ve managed to read this far, then congratulations to you, and if any of this strikes a chord with you (hopefully Eb m), drop me a line.

So I suppose this is the time I need to write it all down finally. Why is it extra difficult this time? I define myself I realize but what I don’t do and where I don’t go and how I don’t act…this is not new but I hadn’t noticed it before…I wonder what the upside is and whether its something I can shed…so many things I should be doing for my health and well being. I guess it gives me some kind of control to know I need to do things like go to the doctor and not do them…it used to make sense to need something I could control when I was living at home but now that I have my own space and somewhat my own life it doesn’t fit anymore except that its very comfortable. I can stay in my cave with my internet and nobody will leave or yell or be mean. Not much of a life though. I’m the most popular lonely person I know, probably. What do I want really though. I am so used to being by myself or alone that the thought of inviting others into my little world seems while it would have its benefits it would also necessitate a major change in habits. I’m stuck in my shell, most of my friends don’t really know much about me I realize and I’ve kept myself insulated for so long that I feel stuck this way. It’s an actual physical battle to leave the house and a challenge to identify the opposing arguments. I think if I found some clarity as to hat the actual internal selling point to staying this way was I could make a more well-educated decision on how to address. Ideally I’d like to be able to say yes more often and share more of myself with the people around me that care. I’m not even sure what the small steps would be, as its still a battle to even leave the house for other than work, and I guess to go home too. What am I worried about I’m not sure I wish I could lock down the rationale. So many things on the list and I feel backlogged in both actual stuff and brain stuff…shouldn’t I be over this by now? Someday…
