Maybe this makes me a good badboy. I just happen to think that there's more going on in this world than mainstream culture dreams of, although I'm still hooked on the core values.
My limits are high. I can tolerate difficult people like nobody's business, especially creative wonderful geniuses. Most people can't, so I often get to keep them. But I give many more points to people of grace and dignity and would probably prefer to connect with someone who just walked off the set of Little House on the Prairie.
I survive by grooming myself and acting polite. I work as a marketing creative at the highest end of the luxury spectrum, like a house slave. That world I serve is like a book I'm reading, not my life at all, and most of my intellectual antics at night tend to be as inappropriate as possible to that kind of propriety. I mean, sh*t, I actually used to have to write etiquette.
I used to be a writer by day and an impresario and a raconteur at night. I used to curate art and criticize it and even make it. I tried selling it, but I was never very good at that part.
When, after a decade+, I finally lost my superpowers, I took pause to reflect and realized that I done the same exact thing for all that time, mostly out of habit, and for all of it I had paid absolutely no attention to what anyone was doing unless they walked directly into the purview of my immediate creative concerns (I think maybe that's the long-winded way of saying, I was having fun). I was so busy trying to make the world just a little bit more entertaining, as though nibble by nibble we would get to something profound.
So, now I'm trying to take a step back and figure all that out. This is a process and it involves meeting new people and getting new perspectives. More specifically, I want to have a crush on someone and I want it to last forever.
Books are where I am most at home. Currently loving Some Kind of Fairytale by Graham Joyce, Russell Hoban's Riddley Walker and The Birthday Boys by Beryl Bainbridge.
Some of the genres/authors and books that have had a big impact on me include: Charlotte’s Web, Candide, Don Quixote, Tomas Hardy, Klaus Theweleit’s Male Fantasies, Jonathon Carroll, Dostoyevsky’s The Idiot, Poe, Coleridge, Mary Shelley, historical fiction, Luc Sante’s Low Life, Cormac McCarthy’s The Road, Magic Mountain, John Barth (particularly Giles Goat Boy), The Black Dahlia, Moby Dick, Roald Dahl, Hucklebery Finn, theory, Virginia Wolfe, Robert Coover’s Spanking the Made, Graham Greene…
I am a foodie and an omnivore. My favorite meal is breakfast. I have a very healthy curiosity about new things and am especially fond of seafood. Dim sum, yes. Middle Eastern, yes. Rustic Italian, yes. Asian fusion, yes. Indian, yes. Regional American comfort food, yes. In restaurants, a chill, relaxed vibe is important to me.
TV: Not so much. I’m a big fail here. Haven’t quite figured out how to get into it, but am open to trying, so long as it doesn’t become habitual.
