My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm a Southern boy transplanted to Brooklyn, which means I will only say "ya'll" at times of extreme pressure or necessity. I go to grad school in philosophy, and when I need a break from the small print and long books, I like to unwind by playing guitar and harmonica. I'm a voracious reader, lover of trivia, learning languages, and weird history, and can provide sworn witnesses as to the quality of my Martinis.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Studying and hoping someday will pay me for thinking great thoughts instead of just continuing on pro bono. Until then, the usual grind of academia - writing, reading, learning to look very erudite even when taken by surprise. I earn my keep by transcribing focus groups, which is exactly as exciting as you think it is (except for the wiretaps-but I've said too much). Otherwise, making music, going out, staying in, and generally enjoy life.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Conversation. I love to talk and joke and debate, and feel I've missed out if I can't pick up a good story or two in return from whoever I'm speaking to.

If I'm allowed two, see above re: Martinis
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My curly blond hair.

Also, I've twice had people come up to me to compliment my eyes, so I'll say that comes in a close second.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

Books: Definitely too many to list, so as a compromise, on my most recent trip to the bookstore I picked up some short stories by Melville, a book of poems by Frank O'Hara, and a collection of ancient biographies of Socrates. That's a pretty accurate, although not exhaustive, reflection of what I'm usually reading.

I've got pretty old fashioned taste in music. Really into blues (where I got my username from, if you're curious), 60s rock, jazz, Irish, and old-timey country. 80s pop and hip-hop are my guilty pleasures. Some artists, in no particular order: the Carolina Chocolate Drops, the Pogue, the Rolling Stones, Little Walter, Howlin' Wolf, Charley Patton, Ella Fitzgerald, Louis Armstrong, Dave Brubeck, Django Reinhardt, and Uncle Dave Macon

My first cinematic love was gangster movies like The Godfather, Goodfellas, and Scarface. A big fan of Scorsese and Coppola (Mean Streets, After Hours, and Apocalypse Now especially) as well as more off-the wall stuff like Inland Empire and Last Year in Marienbad. The two most recent things I've seen I really liked: Lincoln and Whedon's Much Ado About Nothing

For TV, your usual: The Sopranos, The Wire, Curb Your Enthusiasm. Also devouring 30 Rock on Netflix since I missed it on the air. Not sure if this should go here or movies, but I think TCM is one of the best reasons to have cable.

I will eat and love anything, but if forced to pick, Italian.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
My Books
Wikipedia (I've wasted more hours randomly browsing than I care to admit)
A good rye whisky
Pen & Paper
A sense of humor (probably the most important out of the six)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
A lot of things. My future would be the main one, I suppose. Not in an anxious way, but just making plans and thinking about how to live the fullest life. Gather ye rosebuds, as they say.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Until fairly recently, the depressing answer to this question would have been "Reading very thick books and then staring at the blank pages of my thesis until 2am." Now that I am allowed freedom again, I've been trying not to be such a homebody. I like going to concerts and shows (especially the free ones!) or just hanging out with friends over cheap drinks, while still making for the occasional Netflix marathon.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My most bizarre interaction with the police was when I was ticketed by undercover cops in Venice for having an expired water taxi ticket. I am not too sad the city is sinking into the sea.

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You're a Marxist of the Groucho tendency.

You want to hear the story about how I nearly disemboweled myself performing Shakespeare.

You're willing to share the location of your favorite dive, the one that has the great jukebox and wry bartenders, and then head there for some barroom philosophizing and earnest raconteuring.
