I am pretty happy with where I am and the space I've created for
myself. I've been around and other cities have their charms but for
now and probably quite a bit New York is home. Though the desire to
drop everything, buy a sailboat, and hop from city to city
scrounging a living on ferrying people around is still pretty
strong so…there is that lurking or you know right on the surface.
What I’m doing with my life
Buying a boat and saying fuck it.
I’m really good at
Not dying on my bike in traffic. Cooking meats and making ice cream.
The first things people usually notice about me
The aura of pure awesome that surrounds me, of course.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I enjoy authors who can pick at an idea for a few hundred pages and
really take you with them on the journey. Neal Stephenson, Kim
Stanley Robinson, Frank Herbert are great at blowing an idea up and
getting you to stare at each piece that flies off. Or if you have
an author like David Mitchell or Amitav Ghosh who create fantastic
images with words I'll probably like them as well. I read a lot so
listing everyone would be awful. Recently I've been reading a lot
of non-fiction books about navigation and music theory.
I like all kinds of movies. My favorites tend to be quite
changeable. The same can be said about television.
Sometimes I like the kind of music you could see yourself listening
to when it is hot, sticky, and the sun is rising or setting. Other
times I don't. I like, and damn the cliche, all kinds of music.
Punk, rap, classical, rock, blues--I can probably find someone or
some track I like.
Avocados have become a daily thing. Dominicans taste a lot
different than Haas. I don't know if I like that or not.
The six things I could never do without
The simple bare necessities.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Other than saying screw it and buying a boat?
I think about life outside of our time often. Where will we be in
100 years? 1000? 10000? What will be different and what will
probably be the same.
And as always:
Fortune and glory, kid. Fortune and glory.
On a typical Friday night I am
Out or in. Watching people play music or hacking away on the guitar
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I feel bad when I get rid of Birthday/Christmas cards. It is like
you are throwing the thought away.
You should message me if
You should just do it. Life's an adventure.
