My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm a pseudo intellectual never was been. My life is rather mundane and that's exactly how I like it. I'd prefer to take acid and contemplate my navel, paying particular attention to how every morning more fluff gets in there than write a self summary.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Gone to uni in my thirties. I feel like I was missing something and apparently it's watching 18 year olds throw up on themselves.

Also trying to be more like Kerouac than Cassady but failing dismally.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Blowing my own trumpet
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Stuff and things... if I were other people, that would help me answer this question. I mean seriously, how does one answer this question?

Hang on it's my gorgeous smile, my lovely chiseled bronze features, no my perfectly Anthony Robbins like teeth. Or maybe the fact that I'm a giant self absorbed cock.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books:
Invisible Man (The Ellison novel not the Wells... if you had to ask or google, then probably best we never meet).
Philip Roth
Jonathan Franzen
Junot Diaz
Jorges Luis Borges
Edith Wharton

OK so I figured it's time to update this with a massive list. No hard returns this time otherwise it would just become too difficult to manage. So here we go: Paul Auster; Neal Stephenson; Martin Amis; Kingsley Amis; James Elroy; Charles Bukowski; Naomi Klein (on a side note a couple of years ago I saw her in a restaurant in Sydney and was certain I knew her. Just as I was about to go up and say hello and ask where we know each other from, I realised who she was and humbly sat back down); Irvine Welsh; James Kelman; David Foster Wallace; William Gaddis; Jane Austen; Clive Barker ( we all have our guilty pleasures); Jeffrey Eugenides; Cormac McCarthy; John Updike; Michael Chabon; Armistead Maupin (more guilty pleasures); Toni Morrison; F Scott Fitzgerald; Will Self; Bret Easton Ellis (although do yourself a favour and never go see him live. He spent an hour talking about coke and grindr and not once mentioning themes or process); Do DeLillo; Emily Bronte (but not Charlotte); Pat Barker; Margaret Atwood (It's about this time I realised I'd barely mentioned any female authors); Haruki Murakami; Peter Ackroyd; Joseph Heller and; Gabriel Garcia Marquez.

Yes I read a lot. Good thing I am an English major.

Films:
Anything by Leone, Wenders and love Hal Hartley. One can also throw in Jim Jarmusch for good measure.
.......
Midnight Cowboy; Easy Rider; Run Lola Run; Anything by the Coen Brothers; Kubrick rocks my world; Early Felix the cat with it's strange racial undertones; Swingers; Easy Rider; Once Upon A Time In America (Yes I know I mentioned Leone before but this film deserves its own nod); Cool Hand Luke; Ground Hog Day; Michael Gondry; Spike Jonze; Charlie Kaufman (do the last three have to be mentioned in order?); Anything with Martin Sheen (even Hot Shots II - greatest cameo ever); John Cazale and; that's enough for now

As I write this I'm rocking out to Mott the Hoople. In hindsight it's probably best not to mention that.
.......
I just did authors and films. I'll come back to music and food another day.

Thai food. Love it.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Friends
Love
Sex
Music
Beer (or just alcohol in general)
Family

I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
How to answer these questions that not only represents who I am, but also doesn't scare others away.

Also is there anybody whom I have a 90% match or higher that doesn't list The Wire as one of their favorite TV shows.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
With friends
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Hmmm. Yes. Great... Next question. Really... Privacy on the Internet. That will happen soon. Coming to an apple store near you tomorrow.
........
And as I'm feeling more open today, "She's So Unusual" is one of my all time favourite albums, and still have the vinyl somewhere in storage which will be rescued one day.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
Your profile is void of teenage angst emo poetry. Really, not interested.

If you read over your profile see a spelling or grammar mistake and assume that is the reason nobody of any real substance responds to your messages.

But really if inane chatter about substantial matters that should be taken seriously and are no doubt being discussed by far greater minds than my own interest you.

Or simply when somebody asks you for your top five novels and you answer, but then question yourself for the rest of the evening thinking, "It's impossible that I could have forgotten that book. It changed my life."
