My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
This is a work in progress, but for now I'll just say that I’m smart, funny, silly, and unlikely to turn weird on you after a few promising conversations. I'm still figuring a few things out, but I know what's important and I'm not afraid of complicated/real.

Update: I really have nothing to add to this, except that I might be more fun than this intro makes me sound.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Reading, watching movies, hanging with friends, taking showers.

I also work at a white collar private investigation firm. At this point it's fair to call it a career, but I'm also trying to decide whether grad school in my mid-late 30s is a good idea.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Talking and listening. Synthesizing information (said in an electronic voice). Sorting through confusion. Sucking it up and having a good time.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Stump and glass eye?

Joking. I guess the first thing would be, “Whoa, that's a big dude." Followed by, “Oh, he’s actually smart and kind of funny.”
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Wouldn't blame you for skipping over this part, but. . .

Food: Tacos, iced coffee, the butcher's steak at St. Anselm, pistachios, spicy Sichuan, stuff you dip into other stuff. The Jew (mother's side)/New Yorker in me requires at least one bagel per week.

Shows: Deadwood, The Wire, Mad Men, Jeopardy, Twin Peaks, True Detective, Simpsons, Breaking Bad, Peep Show, Louie, Broad City, etc. We all like the same stuff, apparently.

Movies: Unforgiven, Apocalypse Now, (Forget it, Jake. It's) Chinatown, Long Goodbye, Big Trouble in Little China, Fearless, Dirty Pretty Things, The Wild Bunch, Blade Runner, Children of Men, Coen Brothers, The Thing, Alphaville, Groundhog Day, Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, After Hours, etc. Also, plenty of the horror/sci-fi stuff your average fanboy is into (as if this site needed another nerd with dreams of killing zombies and piloting the Millennium Falcon).

I can understand not being a movie nerd, but who are these people who write: "I'm not really a movie person?" I assume these sad creatures are also indifferent to puppies, sunshine, the smell of the ocean?

Music: Bruce Springsteen and Sam Cooke are essential/restorative. Also - Talking Heads performing This Must Be the Place, Paul Simon singing Graceland, David Bowie, Nina Simone, Motown, Stax, and other 60s and 70s soul, Iggy Pop, Elvis Costello, Fever Ray, Thin Lizzy, Tom Waits, Mark Lanegan, Leonard Cohen ("I'd crawl to you baby, And I'd fall at your feet, And I'd howl at your beauty, Like a dog in heat, And I'd claw at your heart, And I'd tear at your sheet, I'd say please, I'm your man").

I also dig hip hop/rap, mainly stuff that makes you want to dance and/or flip over tables.

Books: Nick Hornby, Lord of Light, Watchmen and other stuff written by Alan Moore, Paradise Lost, Wonder Boys, Ragtime, Born Again, Astro City, The Right Stuff, Kurt Vonnegut, Graham Greene, Neil Gaiman, Charles Willeford, Hunter S. Thompson (but for his romanticism and vulnerability, not as a cult of personality), I Was Dora Suarez, The Goodbye Look, and plenty of stuff that falls under the category of noir, or pulp (Dashiell Hammett, Chandler, Ross Macdonald, Lawrence Block, Richard Stark, etc.). Book recommendations are welcome and much appreciated.

Recently read Baldwin's Notes of a Native Son and was blown away by the honesty of his writing and the power/beauty of his language.

Also, I would just like to say that I do not like this Kindle stuff.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Laughs, whiskey (not really, but it sounds cool), portable music, boots, stories, girls in their summer clothes.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Courage and clarity. Lunch.

Also, where to live in NYC. I love my city in its totality, but I'm growing increasingly discouraged by what's happening to its neighborhoods.

Also, is there anybody alive out there????!
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Hanging with friends, Netflix-ing, watching a ballgame on mute with some songs playing in the background, howling at the moon.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I've watched more than a few episodes of VH1's "Mob Wives."
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
I'm into smart, kind people who are prone to laughter and have a nose for bullshit (presumably mine included)

But really, just do it
