My self-summary
I'm trying to be honest, ambitious, and a "good person," whatever the hell that might mean.

I'm a literary dude and culinarian.

"Some people are preoccupied with the symbolism of their dreams and with who they might have been in past incarnations and with where their souls are going after they die, but I never think about any of that shit. I just love this earth."
What I’m doing with my life
Food things and Meat things and Book things, apologizing, bicycling.

Oh whatever, here's a link to my most recent review:

The best restaurant in Portland is my house on a Sunday night and if you think that's hyperbole or shameless self-aggrandizement then you're partially correct but you'd still be missing out
I’m really good at
Cooking. Being a lot of fun to drink with. My mom tells me I'm an excellent writer and interviewer, and sometimes other people who are not my mom agree.
The first things people usually notice about me
My looming physical presence and my beard and my stupid smiling face
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I get all sorts of excited about authors like JM Coetzee, Raymond Carver, DFW, JJ Sullivan, Italo Calvino, Wells Tower, and Nam Le. Chekhov, Dostoevsky, Tolstoy and Herman Melville too; I've got a Moby-Dick tattoo.

I love The Little Prince. I'm currently working on a review of a newly translated story collection by Kjell Askildsen. I've been thinking about John Berger a lot recently.

In the Heat of the Night and Tampopo are probably my favorite movies. Those and The Lion in Winter. Have you seen Tampopo? Can we talk about Tampopo?

For music, Can and Animal Collective and Tom Waits and whatever's in between. Real Estate, Deerhunter, Thee Oh Sees. The Howlin' Wolf Album.
The six things I could never do without
-Human companionship
-Tasty beverages
-A bicycle
-Mes couteaux de cuisine
-The undulating yet persistent dread of sameness and stagnancy and (duh) death that drives me to seek out meaningful experience and "live fully" or whatever
-Books in piles
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Free will and evil and red pandas and oblivion and gender norms and race and privilege and the usefulness of art and the nature of truth in creative nonfiction and Adventure Time and craft beer and sex and oceans and sex and book cover design.

What We Talk About When We Talk About David Foster Wallace on OkCupid
On a typical Friday night I am
Imbibing, taking part in whatever may follow.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Share a meal with me and a couple pitchers of something strong and see what all I do and don't tell you.

Here's a thing that's not really private:
Seven years ago I helped an off-kilter old man move out of his house and in return he gave me a relatively tasteful Alberto Vargas pinup print, which had been sleeping undisturbed in my parents' basement until I decided (why?) to bring it to Portland with me. So now it's on the floor staring at me from across the room and I can't decide if it's a lovely bit of vintage chic or if it's a hopelessly offensive image of objectification that propagates unrealistic standards of beauty favoring whiteness and youth. So it stares at me. It makes for great conversation. I don't look at it much, though.
I’m looking for
  • Girls who like guys
  • Ages 21–30
  • Near me
  • For new friends, long-term dating, short-term dating
You should message me if
You read books and think I've got a cute face

I'm totally down with existential despair so long as you've got a sense of humor about it but I'm not cool with overstimulated affluent ennui. Don't get at me if you often complain about being bored.
