My self-summary
I've got nice traits. See below.
What I’m doing with my life
Referring to myself as a master of library and information science.

I just moved to Chicago last summer, foremost to be with my partner. We're in an open relationship, and so here I am on this website. I'm not sure how to summarize what I'm here for exactly, but some things I hope to be doing with my life in this period of reorientation are:
*meeting new interesting people
*learning about Chicago
*learning about the nebulosity that is "Chicagoland"
*having some form of fun

If you can assist with any of these goals (and you aren't excessively weirded out that there's this person who I live with) please let me know.
I’m really good at
Well, I don't know if I'm really GOOD at these things, but I spend a bunch of time reading books and talking about them, and listening to music and talking about it. I like believing that I'm good at shaking my ass to dance music, though that claim has been contested. If there's one thing I'm really good at, it's biking through city traffic.
The first things people usually notice about me
That I'm wearing a red hoodie. That's what I wrote when I created this profile last winter. I thought I'd have to change it for the summertime, but now I live in Chicago, so the hoodie is still on regular display.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Recently all I make time for is non-fiction that explains why the world is so bad (David Harvey, Philippe Bourgois, Mike Davis, and stuff like that). I've been in an urban studies book club for a couple years now, and so that's meant lots of urban histories. I used to mostly read fiction, though, and I still sometimes do. Major faves are Thomas Pynchon, David Foster Wallace, Flannery O'Connor, Vladimir Nabokov, and stuff like that.

Some favorite movies are Dead Man, Who's Afraid of Virginia Wolf?, all the best Kubrick movies, all the best Coen Brothers movies, The Passion of Joan of Arc, The Godfather 1 & 2, and Mohammad Ali: The Greatest. I really like quoting the supermarket scenes from My Blue Heaven.

I kinda spend a lot of time listening to music. Some favorites, in no particular order, other than listing the best first: the Beatles, Fugazi, Ornette Coleman, Steve Reich, Pavement, Bach, John Fahey, Fela Kuti, T.P.O.K. Jazz, the Velvet Underground, Terry Riley, Yes, Mississippi John Hurt. And my friends' bands.

As for TV, I haven't had regular access to one since 1998, but I did watch The Wire and I always want to talk about it. Also I'm sure I'll go to my grave with Simpsons references emerging from somewhere in my rotting cerebellum.

As for food, I like everything and I love to wash dishes. No joke.
The six things I could never do without
my bike, sleepytime tea, kale, the internet, avoiding the internet, and the carabiner that's kept me from losing my keys since I graduated high school (not once)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Why cities are the way they are.
Why good art/music is so good.
What the Left is to do.
What I should do this weekend.
What, generally, is to be done.
On a typical Friday night I am
Hanging out somewhere doing something, hopefully. Recently such nights have involved very long bike rides up or down (or both) Damen Avenue.
I’m looking for
  • Girls who like guys
  • Ages 25–39
  • Near me
  • For new friends, short-term dating
You should message me if
. . .you want to. That desire will probably be strongly influenced by my answer to the second prompt above. Please note that if you didn't already.
