My self-summary
I've just returned to Portland after five years in Southern California. I am bookish, literate, I love movies. On the other hand, I love sports and surfing and being outside. So not exactly a nerd, though I sort of dress like one. I also hit up the Portland thriftstores which I love. I work a lot, but I love what I do, so I'm pretty lucky with that.
What I’m doing with my life
My job is associated with the creative arts, so I keep up with all the new books and music and film. I pay close attention to street fashion. I am an elder-hipster! I am also studying Spanish. I am heading down to Mexico City to take an immersion program this spring. I am hoping while there to explore the whole Mexican obsession with Morrissey. He is apparently a GOD down there. (I too am a Smith's fan, but not like that.)
I’m really good at
Making fun of things. Wry cultural observation. I am quite amusing in a Supermarket.
The first things people usually notice about me
I'm pretty open to whatever your deal is.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Food: Pizza -- Pasta -- British-style egg salad sandwiches
Music: At this exact moment: Cloud Nothings "Hey Cool Kid", Cage the Elephant "Cigarette Daydreams" and on a little Stevie Wonder kick as well.
Shows: SNL !!!!
Movies: Maps of the Stars. Everything. I like old foreign movies a lot. And 70s movies. SHAMPOO and SPLENDOR ON THE GRASS are long time favorites. Not a serial TV watcher tho. Don't binge watch anything.
Books: Everything. Tao Lin, John Updike, Murakami
The six things I could never do without
Arnold Palmers. Swiss Army Knife. Something good to read. Surfboard. A best friend to call me on my bullshit.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
I learned how to surf when I was 40. I feel like I want to keep learning new things, like learning Spanish.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I have my share of odd habits, I'm sure.
You should message me if
you want to meet up.
