My self-summary
A native New Yorker (of Five Points, NYC, 19th Century immigrant Irish stock, no less)... Yeah, that about explains it.
What I’m doing with my life
Remaining largely unimpressed... but a dream after all.
I’m really good at
Asymmetrical warfare; deconstruction; faint praise; sifting through the residue; nondescript; contingency; shadow boxing; pricking bubbles; flailing about; shrugging; slipping out the rear...
and rationalization, including all its resultant happiness.
The first things people usually notice about me
The distinct smell of sulfur (Banality of evil, indeed).

And the hat.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Film: Being There; Happiness; The Bicycle Thief; Duck Soup; Lives of Others; The Celebration; Paths of Glory; Adam's Rib; Sexy Beast; Crumb; Annie Hall; After Life (Japanese); Wings of Desire; Remains of The Day; The Sweet Hereafter; Here Comes Mr. Jordan; Au Revoir Les Enfants; Raise The Red Lantern.

NY Post headline: "Headless Body In Topless Bar"

Toy: Rock'em Sock'em Robots

Corduroy: slim wale (not to be confused with jumbo shrimp)

Game show host: Chuck Barris

Party food: cocktail wieners. (honorable mention: Petunias...when drunk)

Infomercial gadget: Pocket Fisherman
The six things I could never do without
Lies I tell myself
The precariousness of freedom
Steel: girders to glances
A foolish consistency
And, of course... S&S Cheesecake (Bronx, NY)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Bliss and its all too lightly regarded precursor, ignorance.
On a typical Friday night I am
Behaving atypically
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Let's just say, in my youth, I hadn't failed noticing Wilma Flintstone displayed remarkably smooth legs for the Upper Paleolithic Period.
You should message me if
You delight in the inconsequential and are prone to the occasional la-di-da.
