Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Born in Detroit, raised on curry, found my passion in words,
invented stories out of sticks and stones, had several birthday
parties, was scared of the basement, saved a dog once, met the
voice of Master Shake twice. You get it.
I've been told that I look like Danger Mouse (the rapper), Neil
DeGrasse Tyson (the science guy), and some guy's friend's brother
(an astronaut cowboy).
Thoughtful, compassionate, smart, sweet...these are adjectives.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I was going to turn this profile into a choose-your-own-adventure,
but that saga deserves its own profile.
Meanwhile, I'm looking for a career right out of college as an
English major with a minor in film. Go ahead, ask me a word, and
I'll give you one in response, or just ask me about movies (which I
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Frogurt, writing, writing while watching frogurt, reading about
frogurt that involve writing, riding frogurt about reading, and
being a friend to all children and animals.

Possibly my intimidating stature, but don't worry, I am easily
dropped with a sock full of quarters. But please, only quarters.
I'm not a fan of nickels.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books - Lolita, The Thin Red Line, Hitchhiker's Guide to the
Galaxy...though mostly I read subtitles on foreign-language movies
which look like books if you squint.
Movies - Rather than rattle off my saber of sharply esoteric film
choices, I'll just tell you the directors I enjoy: Tarkovsky,
Kaurismaki, Kubrick, Kurosawa, Fassbinder, Kiarostami, Nolan,
Tarantino, Jodorowsky, Cronenberg, Ozu, Hou, Wong, Truffaut,
Welles, Bresson, and sometimes (why not?) Hitchcock.
Shows - I've watched The Simpsons far longer than I should have and
still do. Been down The Wire while I was Breaking Bad with
Sherlock. And of course, anything by PFFR and/or Tim and Eric.
Anime in general has my vote this November with a life-long
devotion to Yuru Yuri.
Music - I love the following songs:
Careless Whisper by George Michael
Total Eclipse of the Heart by Bonnie Tyler
The Rose by Bette Midler
Kiss on my List by Hall and Oates
Little Girls by Oingo Boingo
Food - I prefer stuffing myself with popcorn, but I understand that
other food can be good as well. Halal makes me holler, and fried
chicken gets my ticker stickin'. I love all world food equally,
because it's the current year.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
My ability to write, my ability to laugh, others' ability to
acknowledge my right to live, my skill in not inducing murder in
others, and my living conditions.
And I guess I need another one, so...glasses?
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.

angel, and a zombie. Two lesbians ten years apart and an ageless
love. Mutant police in the future. Death and her boyfriend. My
On a typical Friday night I am

At the IFC Center round about midnight seeing a movie for free or

I have a crush on Venus Xtravaganza. Tragedy what happened to
I also appeared in the Onion, sports section to be specific. So you
know I'm fakely athletic.
You should message me if

you want to see a lot of baby races and discuss them in-depth. I
like to think that I'm a good conversationalist on that topic, and
experience has borne that assumption out.
You like planned events and on-the-fly box parties.
Or if you're just a nice person with no part of your brain
