My self-summary
I'm now temporarily residing in Paris, working on a screenplay.

I'm a great big pretentious windbag, but I'm kind to animals and children. Trying mightily to be a better human being. Struggling for the answers to questions that probably have none. Always curious, though frequently impatient with myself and the world. Ridiculously prone to moments of hyperbolean emotionalism.
What I’m doing with my life
Stumbling through it in a thoroughly reckless and haphazard manner. But they pay me to sell cheese. Sometimes, in moments of self-delusion, I fancy myself to be an aspiring writer.

I will be making major changes in the coming months. Taking a chance to fulfill my dreams. Traveling abroad and focusing upon my writing finally.
I’m really good at
Dancing, cooking, sharing arcane esoterica about massive quantities of trivialities--especially movies, railing against self-indulgence, engaging in self-indulgence, taking myself far too seriously, amateur cat management, selling cheese.
The first things people usually notice about me
The shine off my barren scalp. My inability to shut the fuck up.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: Bruno Schulz/ The Street of Crocodiles, Italo Calvino/ Invisible Cities, Jorge Luis Borges/ Labyrinths, Pu Song Ling/ Strange Stories from a Chinese Studio, The Thousand Nights and One Night, Poe, Kafka, James Joyce, William Blake, Wallace Stevens, Pablo Neruda, Rainer Rilke, Basho, Issa, Li Po.

Movies: currently The Third Man, Nostalghia, Mr. Arkadin, Wages of Fear, The Shop Around the Corner, The Lady Eve, Blade Runner, 8 1/2, Strangers on a Train, Singin' in the Rain, Ikiru, really love the current crop of great young indie directors: Christopher Nolan, Wes Anderson, Paul Thomas Anderson, Michael Winterbottom, Darren Aronofsky, David O. Russell, Spike Jonz, Michel Gondry, Jane Campion, etc.

Music: Avalon by Roxy Music has been my favorite album for years, Cocteau Twins, Tom Waits, Kate Bush, Elliott Smith, David Bowie, The Pixies, The Pogues, The Clash, ETBG, Sigur Ros, Grizzly Bear, Fleet Foxes, Washed Out, Cat Power, Air, Animal Collective, Beethoven, Chopin, Brahms, Debussy, Stravinsky, Django Reinhardt, Miles Davis, Billie Holiday, Louis Armstrong, Duke Ellington, Charles Mingus, Thelonious Monk, John Coltrane, Sarah Vaughn, Hank Williams, Ernest Tubb, and I utterly love house music, especially deep house--that is what sets me off on the dance floor.

Shows: Frontline, Nova, Nature, The American Experience, American Masters, The Power of Art, The Wire, Deadwood, Game of Thrones, Bob's Burgers, Home Movies, and I'm a total To the Best of Our Knowledge junkie.

How about artists? Joseph Cornell, Francis Bacon, Goya, Monet, Degas, Arshile Gorky, Vermeer, Calder, Van Gogh, Kandinsky, Kokoschka, Stuart Davis, Arthur Dove, Magritte, Rousseau, Durer, Bosch, Posada, O'Keefe, George Tooker, Joseph Stella, Miro, Rembrandt, Grandville, Dali, Lautrec, Lipschitz, Moore, Nevelson, Duchamp, Franz Kline, Breughel, etc., etc.

Food: anything cheap and good. Love especially Middle Eastern/Mediterranean, South and Southeast Asian, Japanese, and Southwestern.
The six things I could never do without
A good book.
Comfortable clothes.
Simple food.
My friendships.
My cat.
My doubts and questions.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
My tired bloated ego and where I can chuck the damned thing. How weird and weirdly precious the small things in life are. Where and when will I find another good dance floor.
On a typical Friday night I am
Movie-ing, then always dancing.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Hate flying. Gonna have to get used to a great deal of it soon though.
I’m looking for
  • Girls who like guys
  • Ages 30–55
  • Near me
  • Who are single
  • For new friends, long-term dating, short-term dating
You should message me if
You can talk my ear off without boring me to tears. You're always in need of a good dance partner. You're curious, skeptical, occasionally self-deprecating, occasionally take yourself far too seriously, trying to find your way but not there yet.
