My self-summary
I'm Matt
What I’m doing with my life
I go to/ teach at Brooklyn College . I teach English composition, so most of my days are spent in a state of mild to severe frustration. I feel like I finally understand the Myth of Sisyphus.
I also play in a folk band, among a few other projects.
I’m really good at
not being good at sports.
The first things people usually notice about me
My very long and wild hair. At some point it will be donated, but for the meantime it is a crazy mess.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: the closer to World War II, the better. My thesis is on Beckett.

Movies/ Filmmakers: Bergman, Kurosawa, Tarkovsky and pretty much all of the Star Trek universes (except Enterprise), which is the most nerdy thing about me. I also love mindless movies with big explosions and shit.

Music: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T71gb8eQRKg&feature=channel&list=UL

also some old emo stuff, jazz (ala Coleman, Dolphy, Taylor), Arvo Part, Max Richter, A Silver Mt. Zion, Bonnie Prince Billy, Swans, early Bob Dylan/Leonard Cohen etc.
The six things I could never do without
Whiskey, books, good company, good flicks, music that makes things a little better, and banana sandwiches.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
What movie to watch next.
What whiskey to buy next.
What the heck I want to do with myself, both in the immediate and in the relatively distant future.
What random purchase I want to grab from Amazon that I will instantly forget until the day it arrives. Not only books but strange stuff like organic ginger ale and tapioca flour.
On a typical Friday night I am
Mostly doing things, but sometimes I change it up and do stuff. My life is spicy.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
About 7 years ago I was mugged by a group of 13 year old kids in broad daylight on a busy street. They had no weapons or anything, yet I gave up my stuff immediately. The most private thing about that story is that I am totally unashamed of it.
You should message me if
You don't mind talking about literary things/ movies/ geeky stuff.
