I love discussing the arts, going to museums, going to the theatre, attending operas and seeing good films. I typically go to the monthly gatherings of the New York chapter of Wikimedians. I consider myself an intellectual and would like to meet someone like-minded. Politically, I am a progressive independent. I am drawn toward independently-minded people who are intelligent, artistic and affectionate. Ideally my girlfriend is my best friend.
I love going to the Museum of Modern Art, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, and the American Museum of Natural History. The latter has the ancillary pleasures of how blatantly 1950s some of the cards, diagrams, and typefaces look (the time capsule effect has a huge charm for me)--in spite of any misgivings one may have about taxidermy ;) Diorama, being mixed media, is still an underappreciated art form exclusive to science museums.
My DVD collection:
Hear me sing opera:
Hear me sing rock opera:
Hear me sing rock with a choir:
My collections of DVD, mostly rare VHS, books, and comic books, etc. are mostly in storage in the NYC area until I get through the probationary period at my current job.
Here are the answers to the statistically important questions.
-I do not like the taste of beer.
-I like artistic, classic, comedic, giallo and gothic horror films. I don't like crappy franchise slashers or gore for the sake of gore. Aside from gialli, I prefer supernatural horror to murderer horror.
-I would travel around a foreign country alone, but have never done it.
-I would not want to chuck it all and live on a sailboat. Living without my library for even a few months is aggravating.
-I prefer complex people to simple people.
-Spelling and grammar mistakes annoy me. I have an English degree.
