I'm a pretty laid back person and it takes a lot to rile me. That's not to say that I can't be passionate about the things I care about. I've been known to go on for quite a while about French New Wave Cinema and it's importance on 70's American film and it's ramifications on 90's Indie film. So with that said, yeah I'm a bit of a geek too.
A good friend described me as an Optimistic Cynic. I mostly agree with that assessment except I would actually reverse it and say I'm more of a Cynical Optimist. Meaning that I'm usually a fairly upbeat and hopeful person but also realistic, to put it nicely, in my expectations. Does that make a lick of sense?
Finally and most importantly, and hopefully this won't scare too many people away, I have two teenage (15&13) kids who live with me part time and are the biggest part of who I am as a person. Being their dad, and being a fantastic dad, is huge part of life and makes me who I am.
Oh yeah and apparently I'm one of those INTJ people, which is frighteningly accurate I have to admit.
So yeah, that's my spiel.
Trying to figure out how to squeeze 36 hours into a day.
I work as a freelance editor cutting mainly commercials and music videos. I also have my own production company with two of my friends that we use to create our own original work.
These two things keep me pretty damn busy and can throw my schedule into absolute chaos.
I go see as many live shows as I can, usually a few a month.
Films: Kubrick, Truffaut, Malick, Aronofsky, Godard, Paul Thomas Anderson, Hitchcock, Tarantino, Coen Brothers, Sidney Lumet, David Fincher, Spike Jonze, Michel Gondry, Stan Brakhage, Edgar Wright, tons more and the movie Oscar with Sylvester Stallone. Seriously that movie cracks me up.
TV: Community is currently my favorite thing on tv (6 seasons & a movie!). I would compare it to the British tv series Spaced, which I also loved. The rest of my tv list would be Simpsons, True Detective, Archer, South Park, Mad Men, Game of Thrones, Parks and Recreation, Veep, Californication, Curb Your Enthusiasm, The Inbetweeners, The Daily Show - if I don't watch it the day it airs I won't watch it. I'm weird like that.
Books: Film Books, Don DeLillo, Michael Chabon, Kafka, Phillip K. Dick, Jim Thompson, Borges. A Visit from the Goon Squad & Super Sad True Love Story have been two of my more recent favorites.
Food: I'm kind of a recent vegetarian/pescetarian because my animal loving 13 year old daughter wanted to try it and I agreed to do it with her.
Chances are if I look at somebody's profile the first thing I read is the movies/music/books section. I think you can tell a lot about person by their taste, not good or bad but compatibility.
I was married for ten years and though we haven't been together for five years now I still consider my ex-wife one of my best friends.
If you're a bit weird, eclectic, unique, artsy. My life is whirlwind of activity and I think you'd have to be one of those things, or preferably all of them, to be a part of it.
