I produce, perform, and promote music and events from a gallery/studio of sorts in Wicker Park. Sometimes I make arts. Sometimes I play lots of Talking Heads songs in a row. Teaching is something I like to do. Learning is something I like better.
Fundamentally, I suppose I'm attempting to apply curatorial discretion and mindfulness to my lifestyle and my social interactions, whilst learning to manage my time with intention.
My sleep schedule trends towards erratic. I'm on that 24 hour hustle... don't think I'm weird for creepin' on your profile at 4 in the morning. There's plenty of better reasons than that.
Books*: I think I'll never finish Infinite Jest**. Kurt Vonnegut. Palahniuk. Charles Bukowski. Brothers Karamazov. The Count of Monte-Cristo. Mostly been on a non-fiction kick lately. Read the autobiography of Miles Davis! Do it.
Television: Bored to Death. 30 Rock. Twin Peaks. Breaking Bad. Daily Show. Party Down. Louie. Community. Newsroom. Arrested Development. I don't have a TV, but I got that internet
Film: "Her" is the greatest film I've seen in years. Waking Life. Synecdoche, NY. Broken Flowers. Wet Hot American Summer. Wes Anderson. Stanley Kubrick. Bill Murray. Robert Redford. Tarantino. I like smartypants shit and great acting.
Food: My food choices are more dependent on the moment than any specific label, but lately I've been trying not to vote for meat with my dollar. I've been eating fish and eggs, and will occasionally go for animals that I feel were able to live the life of an animal(i.e. wild caught, humanely slaughtered, actually free range etc.) I will consume meat that would otherwise go to waste, as I'm approaching my loose pescatarianism from an ethical and not health bent, and will never say no to my Italian grandmother's sauce. Sushi, Indian, and Thai are amongst my favorite. Longman & Eagle. Beans. Bahn mi. Srirachaaaaa
Music: I take music seriously like it's my job(it's my job). In recent years my understanding of it's social and functional role has grown to consider the function of a piece, and the context within which it is relevant/appropriate. This means that I like a lot of different things for a lot of different reasons, and that I can appreciate a lot of music I don't necessarily like. This is some music I really do like:
Burial. Boards of Canada. Ifan Dafydd. Theophilus London. Daft Punk. Maurice Ravel. Broken Social Scene. James Blake. Brad Mehldau. Washed Out. Fela Kuti. Paul Motian. Mulatu Astatke. Com Truise. Miles Davis. Bela Bartok. David Byrne/Talking Heads. Gustav Mahler. Of Montreal. Michael Jackson. Beach Boys. Billie Holiday. Bill Evans. Claude Debussey. Luther Vandross. Lapalux. Death Grips. Brian Eno. Hall and Oates. MGMT. Radiohead. Atlas Sound. M83. D'Angelo. Prince. O.V. Wright. Marvin Gaye. Kurt Rosenwinkel. Wayne Krantz. Bill Frisell. Fennesz. Mount Kimbie. Zomby. Aaron Neville. Earth Wind and Fire. Big Boi.
*A quick rant about books. Books are like Vinyl. I love vinyl. And I love books. But I am a busy adult in the 21st century, and physical print media is a relic, no longer a practical medium that fits in our life. Sure, I have the boxes of novels and half read tomes I cart around with me whenever I move, just like I have hundreds of records, the majority of which will never be spun again(and I'm a DJ!). I also don't get my news from print media, and I don't use the yellow pages when I'm trying to find a mechanic. This is not to say that I don't read books(although I certainly don't put in the hours that I'd like to), it means that I get my information, entertainment, and ideas from myriad content streams, blogs and trusted filters in my life.
**I must have read enough David Foster Wallace, because I'm footnoting an online dating profile.

You think Vonnegut was wrong about semicolons; They're great.
