My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm a nerd. I like to learn. I like books. I like to write and discuss. It's what I do.

I'm also a vegetarian. I make a pretty random exception for sushi. In a world where I had a stronger will, I'd probably be a vegan - but I'm not judgmental.

I'm a leftist radical and I'm committed. The basic idea is that I oppose oppressive and exploitative relationships of all kinds - particularly and most vehemently capitalism. Essentially, I think society ought to be organized for the sake of the well-being and autonomy of all equally; rather than the profit of a few exclusively. In the last year, I have been passionately involved in the movement for racial justice.

I wish I exercised more.

I'm much less pretentious than I sound.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm a professor of philosophy.

I recently threw a dance party at my apartment and I thoroughly enjoy karaoke.

I'm a social media propagandist.

Sometimes I also play guitar, but I'm not very good. I like to write songs - and then deprive the world.

My alter-ego rides a bike around town, jogs regularly, and maintains a seasonal garden. But he's an ass. Who can be that perfect??
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Navigating the complex intersection between the virtual and the real, where the difference between how things are and how they are perceived is - at best - fuzzy.
^^^
Using convoluted academese to convince people that I am superior and deserve their respect despite the fact that the words I'm speaking mean very little, almost nothing.
^^^
Contriving to allude to philosophers without citing or naming them in inappropriate contexts.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My beard.

Later they may notice: eyes, listening, questions, thinking.

Beard again!
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

Some stuff I kind of read recently or read kind of recently: Octavia's Brood, The Left Hand of Darkness, poetry from Rimbaud and Whitman, Dixie Be Damned: 300 Years of Insurrection in the American South. I read small pieces of a lot of things. I read more philosophy than anyone should. I read an extremely unhealthy amount of online news and analysis.

Some stations/artists from Pandora (back when I still used it at work):

Rachel's, Kronos Quartet, Hazel Dickens, Kate Bush, Swans, Broken Bells, Polica, The Velvet Underground, Sigur Ros, Sun Kil Moon, Dirty Projectors, Tokyo Police Club, Lupe Fiasco, Grimes, Jens Lekman, Beach House, Brother Ali, The Microphones, Jessica Lea Mayfield, Warpaint, Akron/Family, The Coup, The National.

I like the new Sun Kil Moon a lot!

I'm really open to pretty much anything that isn't overtly stupid [even some overtly stupid stuff]. Particularly, I don't like chauvinist, macho, patriotic, or anything that celebrates wealth as an ideal. I do like Kenny Rogers and Dolly Parton. I do not like most things played on mainstream rock stations - with some obvious classic rock exceptions.

Netflix uses words like "Independent," "Cerebral," and "Critically Acclaimed" to describe my taste in film. But, to be fair to me, I desperately tried to round up friends for a viewing of the new Godzilla.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Tortilla chips (seriously!)

Oxygen (get it??)

Cheap Beer

Good friends with whom to drunkenly discuss half-cocked ideas late into the night - around fires - under stars - etc., etc...

That's about it. Everything else can fall away.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
I should probably bypass this question.

But for fun:
Language and Meaning
Place
Ecology
Mortality
Capitalism/Communism
the relationship(s) between all of the above mentioned...
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Out drinking beers with friends and listening to music.

OR

At home watching Netflix.

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
...I seem like the kind of person you'd like to hangout with or know in one fashion or another or you have some insight into good music in Buffalo or you like coffee and beer and books.
