Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I was going to use a Neil Young song for my username, but Heart of
Gold was already snatched up and I'm not from the south, so....
I ramble. A lot. More accurately, I start sentences without knowing
how I'm going to finish them because language is an
I'm from California originally and despite 6 years of New York
living, it still shows.
I'm optimistic and quiet and a bit of a perfectionist, but in a
weirdly personal kind of way.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Trying to be half as insightful as David Foster Wallace?
I'm trying to be a writer of one kind or another, - that's the
dream. In the meantime, I work in film production (Yay, movie
stars! Boo, long hours!).
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Critical analysis. Writing (or so I'd like to think). Answering
phones, a byproduct of my job. I'm a half decent cook and a much
better baker. Reading. Pool (billiards, for the snobs), which is
definitely helped by the fact that there's a hall down the street
from my apartment.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
The hair. Specifically the length, usually followed by a comment on
its 'body'. My boss ran her fingers through it once. It was SUPER
awkward, for everybody involved.
But yeah, I look like I wandered out of a 90s alt rock band.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Well that's a monster category....
Books: Neil Gaiman's Sandman; Anything with David Foster Wallace's
name on it; House of Leaves; Catch-22; also a bit of a Shakespeare
Movies: The Lion King is my favorite movie of all time, followed
shortly by Eyes Wide Shut. Other biggies are Scott Pilgrim, 500
Days of Summer, Sunset Boulevard, Brick, and The Fountain.
TV: Doctor Who season is back! Loving Capaldi so far. Also a big
fan of Hannibal, Game of Thrones, and Archer. And True Detective.
Also The Knick is pretty underrated. Mythbusters too. And that's
just current stuff, not even going into old shows....This is kind
of a big topic.
Music: Yes, please.
I mean, I don't want to be one of those people that says 'I like
everything', but I DO like everything. Including Death Metal! You
haven't lived until you've been in a mosh pit at a Death Metal
show. I guess favorite bands would be The Hold Steady, Titus
Andronicus, Baroness, The Smashing Pumpkins, and LCD
I will literally eat anything, but I'm something of a beer snob.
Or, at the very least, I have an unhealthy obsession with local
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
This....is actually a lot harder than I expected it to be.
-A Pen and notebook
-Work. Sad, boring, and true. I get antsy when I don't have a
-My laptop, having lost it once
-Coffee. Cripplingly caffeine dependent.
-Running. Because I'm usually late, but also just because it's FUN.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
What House of Leaves was actually about.
The person across from me on the subway.
What the actual, straight up, BEST BAND OF ALL TIME is (please
weigh in on this, it bugs me a lot).
How awesome my life would be if I were Spider-man.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Probably at a bar, drinking a beer, with anyone I can drag out.
Hopefully my good friends, and hopefully a weird and unique and
local beer, but I'm hardly picky.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I've intentionally messed up when dealing with movie stars to
antagonize them. In my defense, they always start it.
