My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
A public service announcement from my old friend Quinn:

"Internet love is possible. I know, because I met Samuel on the internet. He is a wonderful, witty young lad. I would say that he does everything with a certain literary flair, but that's not always true. And that's a good thing. I hate people who can't just be human once in a while, which is something that Sam is exceedingly good at.

A globe-trotting adventurer, young Sam has seen and experienced a bunch of places. It's pretty typical on here for someone to post pictures of their study abroad in India and talk about how much it TOTALLY CHANGED THEIR LIFE, but I can say with certainty that Sam's travels have had a deep and lasting impact. There is nothing so good for one's character as exposure, and Samwise has it in droves.

One time we had to sleep in the same bed and Sam didn't complain when I stayed up late reading comic books and later farted on him.

Ladies, Sam is a catch. He's well-read, funny, handsome, and above all, human - so very, very human."

I think human means I fuck up sometimes in really endearing ways but I can't confirm this.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
After another three-month exile overseas, I'm in New Haven for the long haul. Started work on a new book, (50,000 words and counting) and hope to have a draft by summer.

It's the most difficult thing I've ever done. It's part madness, part devotion. Some days you think you're Melville, most days you're Dan Brown. I've lived like a vagabond on and off for years, and this is my first attempt to live like a grown-ass person. It's like putting down the spyglass for a microscope: a new perspective, full of smaller creatures, but no less strange.

There are crocuses and daffodils in bloom. It's almost worth a New England winter for the sight. (I'll say "almost" until I see the magnolias, then I'll forget all about it.)
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Telling stories
Recognizing obscure actors in bit parts
Talking to strangers
Finding my way without a map
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My voice. If writing doesn't pan out I could be the future of NPR or a discount Alec Baldwin.

Movies
Master and Commander, 8 1/2, Synecdoche New York, The Big Lebowski, Rushmore, Blade Runner, The Life Aquatic, Commando, Before Sunrise/Sunset/Midnight, La Dolce Vita, Manhattan, The Fall, La Grande Bellezza, Apocalypse Now, Brazil, Aguirre: The Wrath of God, The Master, Inside Llewyn Davis and The Grand Budapest Hotel [saw the last couple five times in the theater, no shame]

A favorite scene:
"I know how to do it now. There are nearly 13 million people in the world. Can you imagine that many people? And none of those people is an extra. They're all leads in their own stories. They have to be given their due."
(Synecdoche NY)

Or when Claudia Cardinale takes Guido for a ride in 8 1/2, and she deflects in the most delightful and loving way all of Guido's bullshit.

Or the smile on Zero Moustafa's face at the end of The Grand Budapest Hotel, just as the elevator closes.

Listen, I've spent a lotta time in a big dark room by myself, with my own consciousness dissolved, witnessing other lives. That's move-going. It's important.

One favorite passage:
There's nothing back at "The White Visitation" he really needs. Nothing he can't let go. Clothes on his back and the pool motorcycle, a pocket full of spare change and anger unlimited, what more does a 30-year-old innocent need to make his way in the city? "I'm fucking Dick Whittington!" it occurs to him zooming down Kings Road, "I've come to London! I'm your Lord Mayor. . . ."
(Gravity's Rainbow)

TV
Deadwood [and anything else David Milch wrote and HBO cancelled], The Wire, 30 Rock, Arrested Development, Broad City, Louie, Carnivale, Game of Thrones, Peep Show, Boardwalk Empire, Curb Your Enthusiasm, Archer, Breaking Bad, Mad Men, The Sopranos, Firefly, Marion & Geoff, The Trip, I Claudius, Twin Peaks

One favorite scene:
"This is love! Missing her because she's gone, wanting to die. You're so lucky. You're like a walking poem. Would you rather be some kind of a fantasy, some kind of a Disney ride? Is that what you want? Don't you see this is the good part?!"
"I thought this was the bad part?"
"No! The bad part is when you forget her, when you don't care about her, when you don't care about anything..."
(Louie)

Music
The Duke Silver Trio
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
"Stories was everything and everything was stories."
They're all I need to get by. How we live and who we are determined by the stories we hear, the stories we believe, the stories we keep telling ourselves.
Did I just cheat this category? Yes, yes I did.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
How do you write like that how do you even think of those words and put THOSE words in THAT order I wonder if PT Anderson doesn't like opening his eyes unless he can frame everything beautifully that building is butt ugly thanks modernism wonder if I could climb it yeah I could totally climb that oh man that person is so old but I bet he knows some good stories am I ever gonna be that old I hope so jeez that woman looks sorta down wonder what's on her mind look a dog! stream of consciousness is a pretty weak technique and yeah I'd tell that to Joyce tell it right to his FACE too I'm kinda hungry
New Haven is a beautiful city
lucky us huh?
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You like a good ramble and a good rambling talk. You're not ashamed of what you like and how you want to live. That's a great place to start.
