I want to try new things...
Whether it's joining this site or exploring what the city has to
offer--cultural stuff, plays, social/political work, getting back
into movies, which I used to be really into--whatever.
Personality...I'm a pretty deadpan guy, I tend to express myself
more ironically than directly, I appreciate cleverness but I get

Movies: I decided to add three movies I really like: Network, The
Taking of Pelham 123, and Shaun of the Dead. Apparently, only two
other people on this site list all three of these movies, and one
is a straight girl and one is a straight guy. I must represent my
Recent movies: Margin Call and In the Loop are my favorite recent
screenplays. Her. Also liked The Help (which got entirely too much
flack, I think, from people who probably had their critiques ready
before they saw it), Hugo (especially some hypothetical Special
Edition that cut out the Sacha Baron Cohen scenes), and The Rum
Diary, although they wouldn't necessarily be all-time favorites.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1) Pen/paper/doodle stuff
2) Laptop/Internet connection/time sink
3) Uh, not really a "stuff" guy and that's about all I own.
