My friends would say that I'm loyal, dedicated, and the sort of
person who will drive a friend 45 minutes from Palo Alto to San
Francisco (and back) just to avoid the possibility of a public
transit snafu. You may understand this if you've taken the train
during a Giants game. I can both hobnob with the fancy folk and get
down and dirty in the pit. I'm looking for someone who can inhabit
contradictions like that.
What I’m doing with my life
Besides the usual day-to-day hunter-gatherisms, I basically take photographs of inanimate objects for a living. I do a fair amount of it in my free time as well. I also like all of the other regular things people write about in these little boxes, like movies and food and doing stuff in various locales.
I’m really good at
Photography, finding things people want to find, ducking out of
dumb parties, talking to animals both wild and domestic, being
The first things people usually notice about me
If they're at a dumb party, they see me heading for the door and
they're probably jealous. Most likely because I'm about to have
more fun than they're having.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: Irish fiction and general non-fiction. I love Salman Rushdie's Haroun and the Sea of Stories. David Foster Wallace, Roddy Doyle, Glen Baxter, Dermot Bolger. Calvino, Hornby, Salzman, Wolff, now there's a party! Does Phantom Tollbooth count?
Movies: Blade Runner, Before Sunrise, Before Sunset, The Lives of Others, Run Lola Run, The Seventh Seal, City of Lost Children, Fight Club, Night of the Hunter, War of the Worlds(1954), Cocteau's Beauty and the Beast, Metropolis, if Beastmaster is on, I have to watch it. I love the History Channel and any number of documentaries
Music: I've been listening to quite a bit of ambient, noisy stuff lately. Though I'd love to make an endless laundry list of my library but I'm passionate about half a dozen bands which shake me to the core. You might catch them at the Great American Music Hall, Bottom of the Hill and some of the smaller clubs.
Food: I'm a vegan but I don't care if you aren't. I like seitan and praise it, hummus, Indian, Thai
The six things I could never do without
Only four things: Camera, Computer, Books, Live Music. Food and
water are overrated. Oh yeah, air. Air is important
I spend a lot of time thinking about
No, wait, how to make my friend's standoffish cat like me. What the
doomsday predictors are doing with their time now. Traffic
patterns. Road trips to desolate locales to photograph decrepit
On a typical Friday night I am
Plotting, implementing, engaging in content aggregation. Kidding
about that last one.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I really like anthropomorphism. I mean, who doesn't like talking
toast and coffee? Let me think about it, there has to be something
You should message me if
You think this prompt is ridiculous, but you want to look past that
and meet a new friend. I'll even accept triva questions and try to
answer them without any Googlish help
