Update: I really have nothing to add to this, except that I'm probably more fun than this intro makes me sound.
Also: reading, learning, going to the movies as often as possible, DJing occasionally, hanging with friends, turning off Mets games in disgust, etc.
Joking. I guess the first thing would be, “Whoa, that's a big dude." Followed by, “Oh, well that's not what I expected."
Shows: Deadwood, The Wire, Mad Men, Jeopardy, Twin Peaks, True Detective, Simpsons, Breaking Bad, Hannibal (really), 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).
Recent stuff I liked: Inherent Vice, Boyhood, Predestination, Selma, John Wick, Under the SKin, Only Lovers Left Alive.
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, Fever Ray, Thin Lizzy, Prince, Outkast, Tom Waits, Mark Lanegan, and Leonard Cohen's sort-of-cheesy almost apocalyptic sounding stuff from the 80s ("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, Philip K. Dick, Paradise Lost, Wonder Boys, Ragtime, Born Again, Watchmen and other stuff written by Alan Moore, The Right Stuff, Kurt Vonnegut, Graham Greene, Lord of Light by Roger Zelazny, 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.
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????!
But whatever, just do it
