About me:I am a writer. As such, you should read my books and short stories.
I'm sure some of you will immediately wonder what the hell I write like anyway and are too lazy to actually go read some of my stories or a sample chapter. So I guess I'll sum it up in simple terms... If you like Max Barry, Douglas Adams, and other witty humorists with an absurdist streak, you may very well like me. I'd encourage fans of less-funny fare like Chuck Pahlaniuk and Bret Easton Ellis to give me a try, as I've heard there's some crossover there (and American Psycho is a personal favorite). My style of language has drawn mention of Thomas Pynchon and James Joyce, but I haven't read enough to know. So take all that for what you will...

Things really about me:
I am mainly human.
Most of time is spent on things that interest me, but don't make me money.
My time spent in front of the computer is time that could be spent writing, working on music, or any other thing I can think of.
But here I am, anyway.
I moved from Atlanta to Seattle, because I thought destroying my smooth and simple life for something complicated and unknown would be "cute". Now I have no job and dwell in a world of boredom. Join me.
My exciting websites are as follows:
RyanSpeck.com - Probably where you'd expect to see more stuff by me.
MediaGauntlet.com - Reviews and articles on all media

Who I'd like to meet:Someone who isn't a fucking idiot.
I know... Dream big
Sequels are often overrated. I mean, Boutros Boutros-Ghali wasn't half as good as the first one.
Following your apology with "Chill, dude" undercuts the whole "apology" part.
I wonder what the next post-Facebook popular social network will be and how long it will take to turn into Tumblr.
Registered last night for #TAM2013. It'll be my first time, so hopefully it'll be well worth it. I finally get to see Randi in person.
Why haven't we risen up as one people and killed Malcolm McLaren?
