My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
They say you should always open with a joke. How many Marxists does it take to change a light-bulb? None. The light-bulb contains the seeds of its own revolution.

Well, that probably would have been funny with some Groucho Marx timing (the funnier Marx!). Or not. I should have tried that one out on my college students first. I am a college film professor and I have tormented my students with some really terrible jokes over the years. I've always appreciated silly jokes and the anti-comedy of someone like Andy Kaufmann or Steven Wright. Don't worry, I don't plan on bringing cue-cards with horrible jokes, or lip-syncing to Mighty Mouse, on a coffee date or anything like that. Though the dadaist in me would be amused to watch a date a like that unfold at the next table.

But that is the silly/ absurdist side of my personality. I am also very committed to my career. I moved back to Chicago five years ago (well, now technically the suburbs having just bought a condo) to begin my new life as a Professor after many years in graduate school completing my Doctorate. However, there is more to life than just pursuing a career. Finding someone to share my life with is as important.

In terms of what I am looking for with someone, I have never created an ideal type but a few things are important. I'm probably more compatible with someone who is politically and aesthetically liberal. Having adventurous tastes in music and movies is certainly a plus. Openness to new sounds and images, preferring a museum to a bar, or getting way too excited about books are positive signs as well. Emotional chemistry is also very important, but I tend to need to know somebody a little bit before that registers. I guess you can say it takes a bit to warm up to someone.

I forget if you are supposed to close with a joke , in which case:

Wait. I opened with that one. Darn.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I am a college film professor. I consider myself lucky to have a job I love, though if you ask me when I am grading final papers I might change my mind.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Buying too many records (especially John Coltrane ones), watching any movie even really horrible ones, arriving early everywhere, spending too much time in a bookstore, and talking epic walks.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Hopefully not my gray hairs. Ok, forget I said that!
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

Movies: Barry Lyndon, 2001: A Space Odyssey, The Traveling Players, Sherlock Jr, Aguirre: The Wrath of God, Daises, Jeanne Dielman, many Westerns, and of course Better Off Dead (the greatest teen comedy ever!) Actually this list can go on forever too.....

Food: I like food!

Favorite Novels: The Trial, The Magic Mountain, Gravity's Rainbow, Naked Lunch, and Ulysses. I'm also fond of Stephen King's It and bad Star Trek novels...oh and my collection of Complete Peanuts.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Whiskey, my giant plasma television, my turntable, my gym membership, Iced Tea, Trader Joe's, and close friends.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Movies, arcane philosophical questions, The Simpsons, why people like morning meetings.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
I'm not a big bar person so I am mostly likely at a concert, a movie, or happily at home writing.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I've actually seen The Garbage Pail Kids Movie. Also Star Trek > Star Wars.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You want to say hi. Sometimes I can't think of an interesting opening to send along.
