Right now: I scan shit for a living. It's pleasant enough for now, and infinitely better than working at Wal-Mart like I used to, but I don't want to do it forever.
Oh, and I majored in philosophy with a minor in film studies, so I guess I'm good at those things as well. It says so on a piece of paper!
Also, coming up with animal philosopher puns. Let me know if you can come up with any! So far I have: John Lockodile, Platopus, Aristurtle, Albert Camoo, Gill Deleuze (philosopher fish), Michel Foucaw (philosopher crow), Ant Rand (author of Atlas Bugged), Simone DeBoarvoir, Jean-Paul Sharkre, Jacques Dairyda, Flyogenes the Cynic, Bearaclitus, Soinkrates who died from Hamlock poisoning and, of course, Karl Barks ("From each according to his ability, to each according to his pee").
Best fiction book I've read recently: Hopscotch by Julio Cortazar
I also like reading philosophy; I'm currently reading Difference and Repetition by Deleuze which is really interesting though I'm sure I'm not getting 100% of it because it's dense as hell. Foucault, Nietzsche, Schopenhauer, Kirkegaard, Marx, Kant, and Descartes are all also fascinating as well. That being said, sometimes reading philosophy is like chewing steel wool.
Movies: I love movies even more than I love books. Feel free to skip this section because there are a lot of movies that I love so much that I refuse to rank them.So, I'm just going to start with directors (and favorite therefrom in parentheses) then individual movies, in no particular order because its different whenever I try to order them.
Hitchcock (North by Northwest or Strangers on a Train), Renoir (The Rules of the Game), Bresson (A Man Escaped or L'Argent), Kubrick (2001), Resnais (Last Year at Marienbad), Kurosawa (High and Low(modern) or Ran (historical)), Malle (The Fire Within), Godard (Alphaville or Contempt), Melville (Army of Shadows), Scorsese (Taxi Driver or The King of Comedy), Lynch (Blue Velvet), Welles (obvious answer or F for Fake), Mallick (The Thin Red Line), Ford (The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance)... I should probably stop now, but I'm not going to... Cronenberg (Videodrome or Dead Ringers), Fellini (8 1/2), Bergman (Fanny and Alexander), Buñuel (The Exterminating Angel), Antonioni (The Passenger), Altman (The Long Goodbye), Polanski (Chinatown), Herzog (Fitzcarraldo), Coen Bros (Barton Fink), Tarkovsky (Solaris).
Singing in the Rain, The Conversation, Z, Alien(s), In the Mood for Love, Wings of Desire, Brazil, Bicycle Thieves, Star Wars (Empire > the others), The Room, The Third Man, Who's Afraid of Virgina Woolf, Lola Montez, Il Posto, The Big Sleep, The Royal Tenenbaums, City of God, The Good the Bad and the Ugly, Unforgiven... alright I'll stop. One more actually: Antonio Gaudi and Teshigahara in general. Okay, now I'm done. Oh, and Harold and Maude!
Favorite movie I've seen in theaters this year: Moonrise Kingdom
Books (cont.): How did I forget to mention Borges? Anyway Borges is the king of short stories.
Shows: The Wire is the best show ever! Daily Show and Colbert, Doctor Who, Breaking Bad, Mad Men, Parks & Rec, Community, Boardwalk Empire, Arrested Development, Star Trek (TNG is my fav), X-Files, and the shows People & Power and Faultlines on Al-Jazeera English are phenomenal.
Music: I listen to more jazz than anything else. John Coltrane, Wayne Shorter, McCoy Tyner, Charles Mingus, Duke Ellington (cotton tail is probably my favorite song), Charlie Parker, and Louis Armstrong to name a few. David S. Ware when I'm in a free jazz mood. I'm also a big fan of The Beatles (<3 Revolver) and 60s rock in general. David Bowie, Talking Heads and Parliament/Funkadelic as well. Classical music also rules. I listen to a bunch of other stuff as well, pretty open about music. Haven't found a genre yet that doesn't have some great music in it.
