My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
So, about me. Well, how about the good stuff first. I have good manners. I'm smart. I'm a champion of the lost art of kissing as an end in itself. I'm a fine observer and an excellent listener. I generally know when to shut up. I'm fearless about adventure. I'm patient and even-tempered, except when I get excited and then I get silly. In fact, I can be a bit of a performer and clown sometimes, especially when I speak in public (which my job has me do often). Though I do intellectual work, I love building things and getting my hands dirty working outside. I know how to be serious when the times demand it. I'm my own favorite target for laughter. I like being constructively called on my faults and flaws so I can try to fix them.

To be fair, I should tell you some of the bad stuff too. Although I'm outwardly gregarious and social, it can cost me some effort because I'm still shy on the inside. By the same token, although I'm open and honest with people from the start, and tend to trust strangers in everyday ways, it can take me some time to truly come to trust someone in intimate ways. I sometimes lack self-discipline, and can be an absent-minded dreamer, known to walk into telephone poles while lost in thought (no joke). When I get involved in a piece of work, I can become consumed by it to the exclusion of everything else. Other times I have to fight my laziness. I can be too much of a scientist at times, focusing on cold analysis and dry problem-solving instead of on comprehension and understanding.

Oh, I should also say that I just moved to München a few months ago, and I'm learning to speak German, but I still don't speak very well. Perhaps you can help me to learn!

What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm an academic researcher in philosophy---I love to think and talk about almost anything, really, from food to poetry to the finer points of why *Buffy the Vampire Slayer* is the greatest TV show ever.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
kissing, cooking, physics, philosophy, gardening, building and fixing things, traveling to strange places and fitting in, eating strange things and liking them, remaining calm and collected during catastrophes, giving back-rubs, remembering poetry, delivering absurd remarks dead-pan, figuring out how things in the world work
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I suspect my strong jaw. Maybe my eyes. I've been told many times they're intense. Also that they twinkle.

Unless I haven't cut my hair in a while, and then it's probably the big curly mop on top of my head.

I laugh and smile *a lot*. That gets commented on frequently.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I love to read everything--classic literature, poetry, science fiction and fantasy, history, science, philosophy, the back of cereal boxes, you name it. Some of my absolute favorites are: Iliad; Gravity's Rainbow; Plato's Symposium; Remembrance of Things Past (I'm halfway through volume 3 right now); Hemingway's The Garden of Eden; Faulkner's The Unvanquished; the poetry of Rilke; Winnie the Pooh; Mad magazine from the 1950s (strictly genius)

Just like with books, I love all kinds of movies, from the old classics of Hollywood to the great Russian, Italian and French films to big, loud, dumb action blockbusters. Some of my favorites: 8 1/2; Chaplin's The Kid and City Lights; Tarkovsky's The Mirror; Fanny and Alexander; Casablanca; Mon Oncle; Céline and Julie Vont en Bateau; Groundhog Day; Annie Hall; The Jerk; Caddyshack; Apocalypse Now; Young Frankenstein; anything with Katherine Hepburn, Cary Grant, Jimmy Stewart, Humphrey Bogart, Barbara Stanwyck, Veronica Lake, Gary Cooper, Ingrid Bergman, Clark Gable...

Hmm, this may start to get repetitive, but, again, in music I really do like pretty much everything, classical, jazz, folk and old country, Latin, African, classic rock, house, trance, rap, grunge, speed metal, hardcore, bluegrass... Some of my absolute favorites are: Schubert; Beethoven; Chopin; Andres Segovia; Louis Armstrong; Thelonius Monk; John Coltrane; Duke Ellington; Charles Mingus; Patsy Cline; Johnny Cash; Elvis Presley; Joao Gilberto; Mahotella Queens; The Velvet Underground; The Beatles; Bob Dylan; Jimi Hendrix; Otis Redding; James Brown; The Doors; Cream; Buffalo Springfield; Pink Floyd; The Rolling Stones; Iggy Pop (and the Stooges); Bruce Springsteen; Squirrel Bait; Government Issue; The Clash; Minor Threat; Fugazi; Dinosaur, Jr.; The Flaming Lips; The Dead Kennedys; The Sugar Hill Gang; NWA; The Beastie Boys; Belle and Sebastian; The Pastels; Radiohead; Portishead; Ralph Stanley and the Clinch Mountain Boys; Tom Waits; Sam Cooke; Edith Piaf...

TV: I don't watch a lot of TV, but I must confess that I adore Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Firefly; I also am a sucker for Friends (a dirty secret) and Battlestar Galactica; Doctor Who rocks, old and new, and I'm really enjoying Arrow and Hannibal currently---so I guess it's clear I like a lot of fantasy and escapism in my TV; and, as I recently discovered, 30 Rock is a magnificent son of a bitch

food: peaches; lobster (crab, too); stinky cheese; bouillabaisse; grilled t-bone steak; fresh pesto; peanut butter; sushi; arugala (rocket, for you Brits); painfully spicy Chinese, Indian and Thai food; ridiculously rich French and Italian food; perfectly scrambled eggs; roast duck; blueberries; raw oysters; fried oyster po-boys; lamb chops; pan-fried rice noodles; stir-fried pea sprouts; real barbecue

And, though they didn't ask, my favorite visual art and artists, because I love that stuff: all ancient Greek sculpture, statuary, pottery and grave monuments; Fra Angelico; Piero della Francesca; Tintoretto; Caravaggio; Velazquez; Rubens; Brueghel the Elder; Cranach the Elder; Bosch; Titian; Rodin; Odilon Redon; Cezanne; Matisse; Dali; Francis Bacon; Giacomo Manzu; Marino Marini; Alexander Calder; Eadweard Muybridge; Garry Winogrand; Lee Friedlander; Robert Adams
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1. friends
2. books
3. music
4. red wine
5. peaches
6. sex (and physical contact, like cuddling, in general)
7. things both silly and profound to wonder about
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
86 different things at once; what that particular "meow" of my cat meant; the Second Law of Thermodynamics; why some visual images are ravishing; why we don't have a better conceptual vocabulary to describe smells; just how really far away 3 billion light years is; this one math problem that's been driving me crazy; whether I can get away with staying in bed for just 5 more minutes; how nice it would be to have someone to stay in bed for 5 more minutes with, especially if it turned into a fun tussle where I had to drag her back in under the covers when she was trying to be responsible and get up
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
home reading, or re-watching some episode of Buffy for the zillionth time, or out drinking beers and playing pool with friends, or out dancing, or making dinner at home for a few folks, or... usual stuff, I reckon
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I talk with my cat. A lot. But you would too if you knew her.
You should message me if
