My self-summary
My haters and future biographers would say: He comes from a long line of gamblers, thieves, miscreants, charlatans, raconteurs, and misguided geniuses. He is the absolute best of the worst but his mother did a fantastic job of making a gentleman out what should have been an outlaw. May the gods bless her. She's pleased that, though her son was born in a barn, he's going to die an astronaut.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm living the life a moderately successful freelancer and business partner which seems odd, irresponsible, and perhaps downright unfair. Then I spend a few months out of town between projects and the guilt somehow dissipates. I'm a very lucky man, for which I'm grateful.

Because of all this institutional irresponsibility, I have longer hair and shave less often then I have when I've been more corporate. You've been warned! That said, I am the age and height that I say I am - I know that's a thing.
I’m really good at
the right things at the right times. The art of the compromise. Turns of phrase. If a friend is in need, I'm there.

I'm also a big time bruncher from way back. French 75's, good conversation, and some great laughs are the stuff of life.

Finally, I am remarkably good at ordering for the table. If you are a weirdo who does not like sharing food then please, please do not apply. If there's one thing I've learned at my advanced age: a woman who does not share food is bad in bed. You're welcome. Now slather me with barbecue sauce or gtfo.
The first things people usually notice about me
is my distinct lack of concern. Also, the shoes. I'm into 'em.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
The New Yorker (I once very foolishly read Infinite Jest which may have ruined me for books forever)

Pulp Fiction (or at least that's the one that comes up most in conversation - I know a lot of brilliant but culturally clueless kids)

Update: I try to see the Oscar nominated films, if only to get myself out of the house during the winter.

All my faves have arrived: Mad Men, Louie, SNL, and is Broad City not one of the best things to ever grace the small screen?

I've been listening to LCD Soundsystem's The Long Goodbye on vinyl almost exclusively for the past six months (and am embarrassed to admit that I don't see that changing anytime soon)

Bourbon and cheese or oysters and champagne, depending on the season (or, you know, the time of day)
The six things I could never do without
are... Yeah, this is bullshit. Beyond food, clothing, and shelter, I can do and have done without almost everything. That said, money, friends, and antibiotics seem to solve most problems most of the time, so... There's your six.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
the weather. In the short term, I'm finding myself a bad layerer these days and in the medium term, what the hell, it's cold again? Thoughts about the weather in the long term I try to avoid. Just give me a few more good years riding motorcycles and drinking outside before it all comes to an end, that's all I ask.

Update: It's nice out again and I'm digging it. I am still concerned about the weather, but I'm out on the bike and drinking outside. Let the summer commence.

I'm also at war with myself over getting a dog. I'm sure you know how it is (though at this point it's not if, it's when). I'm currently soliciting names if he or she doesn't already have one. Ideas?
On a typical Friday night I am
avoiding the amateurs, staying up way too late, and looking forward to making you breakfast on Saturday afternoon. You ain't never had eggs like mine.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
is that I'm super excited about being a grumpy old man.
You should message me if
you've got the class, the sass, the ass, and are open to the idea of moving this situation into the real world. Let's put our technology down and go find a good time.

Also, before you get too cocky, we all have plenty of options. End of the day; I'm fun and funny. Are you?
