Beyond that, the main thing I've been doing recently is focusing on being less of a chickenshit. So far, so good.
(What every woman wants to hear, right?)
Joking. I guess the first thing would be, “Whoa, he’s a big guy." Followed by, “Oh, he’s actually smart and pretty funny.”
Shows: Deadwood, The Wire. Mad Men, Parks and Rec, Jeopardy, Twin Peaks, True Detective, Simpsons, Breaking Bad, Peep Show, Louie, etc. We all like the same stuff, apparently.
Movies: Unforgiven, Apocalypse Now, (Forget it, Jake. It's) Chinatown, Alphaville, Jackie Brown, Long Goodbye, Big Trouble in Little China, The Wild Bunch, last two Batman films, Once Upon a Time in the West, Blade Runner, David Lynch, Gone Baby Gone, Network, Crouching Tiger, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, Outlaw Josey Wales, Children of Men, Casablanca, Coen Brothers, The Thing, Groundhog Day, Before Sunset/Sunrise (haven't seen the new one), Rushmore, Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy, Wes Anderson, Heat, After Hours, Gran Torino, and much 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 (although clearly I am), 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 - David Bowie, Nina Simone, Motown and other 60s and 70s soul (Smokey, Otis Redding, The Drifters, Marvin Gaye, Al Green, Curtis Mayfield and The Impressions, etc.), Iggy Pop, The Knife, Fever Ray, Stones, Talking Heads performing This Must Be the Place, Paul Simon singing Graceland, Neil Young, 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"). Just started getting into Elvis Costello, but I have a feeling he'll be on this list a few weeks from now.
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, This Immortal, Kurt Vonnegut, Graham Greene, 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.
Also, I would just like to say that I do not like this Kindle stuff.
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????!

You feel like wandering
You're maybe just a little bit tired of hip
