My self-summary
Lapsed academic. Archivist/librarian in training - focusing on moving image archives and special collections. Incorrigible cinephile and budding film programmer.

I'm moving to Austin in the nearish future for what could be my dream job (a short-term gig which could become full-time). It'd be nice to make a few friends before coming to town.

What I’m doing with my life
Appreciating the absurd in everyday life.
I’m really good at
not wasting food, changing my mind about things, walking into inanimate objects.
The first things people usually notice about me
Bewildered facial expressions?
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: Georges Bataille, Johanna Drucker, Michel Foucault, Susanna Paasonen, Alexander Weheliye. Venus in Furs. The Dream Life by J. Hoberman. The Tactile Eye by Jennifer Barker. Currently reading: The Forms of the Affects by Eugenie Brinkema.

I follow academic presses with an enthusiasm akin to sports fans (Duke!).

Movies: After Hours, Au Hasard Balthazar, Beyond the Black Rainbow, Blood for Dracula, Blue Steel, Cleopatra Jones, Cruising, Dr. Caligari (1989), The Human Tornado, Killer Party, Lady Terminator, Messiah of Evil, Ossessione, Portrait of Jason, Querelle, The Strange Color of Your Body's Tears, The Telephone Book, Truck Turner.

I'll watch almost anything released by American International Pictures or directed by Anger, Antonioni, Argento, Denis, DePalma, Hitchcock, the Kuchar brothers, Lubitsch, Pasolini, Sternberg, Verhoeven, Winding Refn, and Żuławski.

TV: The Twilight Zone.

Music: Most of musical interests come from living in Chicago and frequenting Dusty Groove. Mostly funk, soul, disco, boogie, electro, italo disco, sound library, and film scores.

Food: Burritos and tacos.
The six things I could never do without
Film, a nearby library, intellectual stimulation, my glasses, Franco Nero, sweaters/sweater weather (this is the only thing that makes me anxious about moving to Austin).
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Artifice and excess. Theories of affect and embodiment. The mingling of high and low culture. My love-hate relationship with the Italian Futurists. Vocoders.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
The last time I rode a bike I (accidentally) ran over someone's head.

I love the films of Jerry Lewis. I realize this is probably a deal breaker for most people. Sorry, I can't help it.
