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 three times had people come up and compliment my eyes, so I'll say that comes in a close second.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
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 reflection of what I'm usually reading. Currently Reading: The Rubáiyát of Omar Khayyám

I've got pretty old fashioned taste in music. Really into blues (where I got my username from, if you're curious), jazz, Irish trad, 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, Little Walter, Howlin' Wolf, Ella Fitzgerald, Louis Jordan, 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. Last movie I saw in a theater: Birdman

I'm a seious TV procrastinator. Currently finishing Mad Men and trying to avoid spoilers for season two of True Detective. For something lighter, I turn to Rick & Morty and Bojack Horseman. Not sure if this should go here or movies, but I think TCM is one of the only 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.
Paper Books
Wikipedia (I've wasted more hours randomly browsing than I care to admit)
Harmonicas
A good rye whisky
Pen & a pad of paper
A sense of humor
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, both in a cosmic, big question sense and in the sense of where I'm going to get lunch as well
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
My usual Friday plan is hanging out with friends at over cheap drinks at the local pub, discussing the state of the world. Of course, I'm always happy to go to a concert or show, if the mood strikes me and the company is good. And on some nights, when it's too hot, too cold, or the MTA is being particularly cruel, I'll settle in for a 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 old-school bartenders, and then head there for some bar room philosophizing and earnest raconteuring.
