Personal Ad for 7/28/08

Hi, I’m Jeremy. I’m 6’1 with glasses and dark wavy hair, and I’m broad shouldered (which is code for “I’m not skinny but I’m not a mess either”).
Apparently (I just did an IM survey) I have nice (hazel) eyes and a pretty mouth (Deliverance style!), and I’m cuter than my pictures. I’m a Jew by birth, but other than the penchant for self-deprecating humor and latkes, I’m not religious. Or cheap. And yes, I have pictures. And a Facebook account, like everyone else.

I enjoy all kinds of wordplay, I like to cook and I’m pretty funny (well, that creepy Facebook app that has you rate your friends seems to think so, anyway). It annoys me that there’s no way to talk to a stranger on the subway without it being a whole personal space invasion thing. I think quiet nights at home with movies and a home made meal (preferably made collaboratively) are awesome.

I inhale new music of all genres (seriously, pandora and last.fm have no idea what to recommend, it’s kind of depressing… SoftLord is my last.fm username if you want to stalk my tastes), read a ton of blogs and generally enjoy learning about people and…things. Some of my favorite things are: anything Jim Henson-related, anything Neil Finn-related, anything Alton Brown-related. I never use a miniscule word when a long one will suffice. Not “do,” “suffice.” I have a big plasma-screen TV for movie, but I swear I’m not overcompensating.

I work at a record label, making blogs and podcasts and responding to fan emails, in an attempt to have everyone love music on a deep level as much as I do.

Here’s a joke: How many surrealists does it take to change a light bulb pasta bicycle cyclops?

Are you in your mid-to-late 20s? Do you read books on the train? Have you always wanted Carl Kasell’s voice on your home answering machine? Did you stop watching The West Wing after season 4? Do you have trouble keeping up with RSS feeds? Are you always running out of room on your iPod? Do you love making out? Do you always wish you had someone to try out new recipes with? Do you crack yourself up? Then we’d probably get along smashingly. I dig quick-witted, smart, interesting and interested self-assured women with a wide variety of interests (mmm…geek girls). I’ll cook if you do the dishes. Or we can skip it and go to brunch, I know a place that has amazing crepes and is open late.

In terms of a physical type, think more Janeane Garofalo and less Paris Hilton (though my ultimate fantasy is Lauren Ambrose).

I’m mostly hoping to be able to experience new people and what we can offer each other. It would be great to find someone to make laugh and to share work stories with at post-NPR brunch. Yes I’m a nerdy middle-class New Yorker.

Anyway, if you’ve managed to read this far without closing the tab and going back to the index, then congratulations to you and I owe you a cookie, and if any of this strikes a chord with you (hopefully an Eb minor), feel free to drop me a line!

Hi, I’m Jeremy. I’m 6’1 with glasses and dark wavy hair. Apparently (I just did an IM survey) my eyes and lips are my best features. I’m a Jew by birth, but other than the penchant for self-deprecating humor and latkes, I’m not religious. Or cheap. And yes, I have other pictures. And a Facebook account, like everyone else.<br>
<br>
I’m a flirt and I’m pretty harmless (wordplay = fun), I like to cook and I’m pretty funny.  I feel bad when guys stare at girls breasts in a slimy way when they walk by, but some of y’all are just so beautiful and scantily clad!  It annoys me that theres no way to talk to a stranger on the subway without it being a whole personal space invasion thing.  I think quiet nights at home are awesome.<br/>

So its early Sunday morning, and my current late-20s what-does-it-all-mean-oh-my-Gd-I’m-gonna-be-30! ennui has me a little flummoxed, so I will try to be brief to keep some mystery. *deep inhale*

Hi, I’m Jeremy.

I’m tall (6’1) and broad-shouldered(I think I wear it pretty well, and no I’m not obese) with dark wavy hair and glasses. I’m a Jew by birth, but other than the penchant for self-deprecating humor and latkes, I’m not religious. Or cheap. And yes, I have pictures. And a Facebook. And a MySpace.

I am a reader of books and blogs, inhale new music (1500 CDs and more, from all different genres) and new ideas. Some of my favorite things are: anything Jim Henson-related, anything Neil Finn-related, anything Alton Brown-related. I never use a short word when a long one will suffice. Not “do,” “suffice.”

I consider myself sweet and thoughtful but not a pushover. I’ll cook if you do the dishes. Or we can skip it and go to brunch, I know a place that has amazing crepes. Oh, and I try to remember to be silly a least once a day, to keep perspective.

Here’s a joke: How many surrealists does it take to change a light bulb pasta bicycle cyclops?

My day job is in the digital area 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 less prone to mockery.

Somehow between working long hours, outgrowing the club scene and having a bunch of friends move elsewhere in the country, my life right now is kind of insular. I’m now totally sick of my nice little insular life and would like to fling the doors wide open and shout from the hilltops.. .erm… “HI!”.

I dig quick-witted, smart, interesting and interested self-assured women with a wide variety of interests. My previous relationships have taught me that it is quite rare to find someone who is kind in addition to these traits, so I value the amazing women in my life who are. In terms of a physical type, I’m not too limited. I do appreciate curves on a girl though, if they are worn well. Also, you must love to make out.

Anyway, if you’ve managed to read this far without closing the window and going back to the index, then congratulations to you and I owe you a cookie, and if any of this strikes a chord with you (hopefully an Eb minor), feel free to drop me a line! I do bite, but only a little.

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 read, I blog, I do other geeky things.  I also love to cook, and try out new recipes and such.

My passion is content.  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 (1500 CDs and more) and new ideas.  Some of my favorite things are: anything Jim Henson-related, anything Neil Finn-related, anything Alton Brown-related.  If this sounds familiar to you, I’d love to hear about what’s currently turning you on (you know, in a mental sense).

I make a living in the online area 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.

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 life for myself thats pretty insular.  I’m now totally sick of my nice little insular life and would like to invite people into it.

I’m tall (6’1) with dark hair and hazel eyes (with glasses not of the coke bottle variety) and a Jew by birth, but other than the penchant for self-deprecating humor and latkes, I’m not particularly religious. Or cheap.

I dig smart, funny and self-assured women.  Very much.

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 an Eb minor), feel free to drop me a line!

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.

Match Profile for June 18, 2007

_Aboot Me:_
People tell me I make a solid first impression, so if this profile doesn’t make you giggle at least once, then people don’t know what they’re talking about. Stupid people. With their possibly untrue statements on first impression…ness.

I’ve got a voracious appetite for information. I try to make sure I learn at least something about as many different things as I can. Also, I’m full of secrets, just like on Conan. Or, you know, a secret pinata.

I enjoy discovering new music and films, adding to my encyclopedic knowledge of minutiae (I want to know something about everything), attempting new recipes, spending evenings with friends in a park or on a roof drinking both expensive and cheap wine (not simultaneously, though), and finding beauty in unexpected places.

Performing random acts of kindness for the special people in my life is part of who I am.  Random acts in general as well, actually.  My friends have described me as sweet, smart, quick-witted, geeky and tall.

I also dig the silly and the sensual, like making out during The Muppet Show. Something about Fozzie just gets me going; maybe it’s the ears.  I’m a total fan-boy for all things Henson, actually, and I’ve already pre-ordered the DVDs of season two.

A goal I’ve been working on this year is to spend more of my time with a camera taking pictures of unguarded moments throughout the city so my Flickr account can be fed.

And that brings us to…

_Aboot You_

In a “let’s be friends and maybe more” kind of way: Someone who feels like Empire Records and kisses like Sigur Ros. Alternately, someone who understands what I’m getting at.

Also, it would be great if you are the kind of person who gets a lot of pop culture references, since I use them a lot in my something something (in case you hadn’t noticed).

On a purely physical level, I’m powerless over women in black tanktops and Lisa Loeb glasses. Seriously, it’s my Kryptonite.

Are you a girl who reads on the subway, and hates losing concentration due to people chattering on their cellphones? Do you have more than four genres of music on your ipod?  Have you ever caused milk to come out of someone’s nose due to a well-timed joke?  Are you happy with who you are, flaws and all, but still passionate about learning about yourself and how you fit into the world?  Can you give as well as you get?  Have you ever gotten a “not living up to her potential” on a report card?  Can you juggle (cause I’d love for someone to teach me!)?

Are you reading this and thinking “now he seems like a fellow I’d like to get to know a bit!”  If so, then I strongly suggest you click that little button marked “Email Him” in the corner and say hi, especially if you said that last part out loud to yourself in a cockney accent, ’cause that would be awesome.

I’ve got a voracious appetite for information. I try to make sure I learn at least something about as many different things as I can. I would love to meet someone quick-witted and kind with a similar zeal for learning about the world to spend some time with. (Thats right, I said zeal!) Also, I’m full of secrets, just like on Conan.

I enjoy finding new music, adding to my encyclopedic knowledge of minutiae, trying new recipes, making just-over-the-line comments, spending evenings with friends drinking both expensive and cheap wine (though not at the same time), and finding beauty in unexpected places.

A goal for this year is to spend more of my time with a camera taking pictures of unguarded moments throughout the city.

I think everyone has a story to tell or a passion that can be learned from, when you take the time to dig beneath the surface. I also dig (see what I did there?) the silly and the sensual, like making out during The Muppet Show. Something about Fozzie just gets me going; maybe it’s the ears.

And that brings us to…

_Aboot You_

In a “let’s be friends and maybe more” kind of way: Someone who feels like Empire Records and kisses like Sigur Ros. Alternately, someone who understands what that means.

On a purely physical level, I tend to prefer girls who are a bit on the curvy side rather than stick-thin women. I’m powerless over women in black tank-tops and Lisa Loeb glasses. Seriously, it’s my Kryptonite. I like assertive, independent, funny (not just people who say they’re funny on their profile), open-minded, communicative smart women. I’m never sure what to say to quiet demure girly-girls.   Think Natalie from Sports Night.

I’d like to meet someone who’s psyched about where 2007 might take their life, can explain the difference between baking powder and baking soda, and who will interrupt my frequent run-on sentence-list-things with some kind of creative way of shutting me up.

I drop a lot of pop culture references in my every-day speech, so it would be great if you could keep up.

Of course, this all sounds like I know what I’m doing, but I’m trying to find someone remarkable who wants to get to know me just like everyone else, so maybe we could wing it together.

People tell me I make a solid first impression, so if this profile doesn’t make you giggle at least once, then people don’t know what they’re talking about.  Stupid people.  With their telling me things.

I’ve got a voracious appetite for information. I try to make sure I know at least something about as many different things as I can, which basically means that I enjoy spending time reading blogs, finding new music (legally, of course!) and telling my friends about it, filling up my DVR, reading, and testing out new recipies. It would be great to have someone quick-witted and kind with a similar zeal for learning to spend some time with. (Thats right, I said zeal!)

My two main passions in life are technology and music, and I have a job in the online field of the music industry where I’m paid to indulge them.

I’m definitely more of a good bottle of wine (many levels of taste and texture), than a tequila shot (gets you blasted real quick). I love getting to know people beyond just what they put out into the world, and I find that everyone of us has an interesting story to tell or a passion that we can learn from.

I love the silly and the sensual, like making out during The Muppet Show. Something about Fozzie just gets me going; maybe it’s the ears.

And now for the short form: here’s a list of stuff that I think is good (the stuff, not the list). It’s totally different from the “Favorites” list, I swear. No…really.

Feeling cozy, eye contact, inside jokes, being appreciated and appreciating, disco (unironically), anything Henson-related, thai food, people who are assertive rather than passive-agressive, spring evenings, being good to each other, fall mornings, naps, napes, movies that you can recite all the dialogue to but love watching anyway,  perfectly crafted pop song (think Neil Finn, not Pussycat Dolls), a warm embrace that goes on just a second too long, white tuna sashimi, the first four seasons of The West Wing. Do you have any you’d like to suggest?

Now on to the “what I think I want for now” category.

In a “let’s be friends and maybe more” kind of way: Someone who feels like Empire Records and kisses like Sigur Rós.  Someone who understands what that means.

I much prefer strong, independent, funny, open-minded, communicative smart women to quiet demure girly-girls. I’m powerless over women in black tanktops and Lisa Loeb glasses. Seriously, it is my Kryptonite.  I prefer curvy girls to really skinny ones. I’d like to meet someone who’s psyched about where 2007 might take their life, who know why an Amy Sherman-Palladino script is better than a Daniel Palladino script except on Family Guy, who can debate whether Bootsy Collins or Nile Rogers is the better bassist,  the difference between baking powder and baking soda and where all the cast members of Silver Spoons and Full House are today. And then kiss for two hours.

If you call me a geek, I will thank you.  I less-than-three girlgeeks, muchly.
