I suspect there may be a twist ending
I actually do something far more useful for a living (the world really doesn't need any more photographers), but I'm not as good at it.
Upon further self-reflection I would probably more accurately have to characterize my sense of humor as absurdist, or perhaps optimistic nihilistic. But now I may just be listing aspirational terms with nothing to back it up...
Tim Buckley over Jeff Buckley
Nina Simone over Adele
Natural Born Killers over True Romance (Quentin Tarantino related)
Juliette Lewis over Scarlett Johansson (Woody Allen related)
And also: Leonard Cohen over Jeff Buckley
Books, in (incomplete) order of most recently read:
The Sickness Unto Death - Soren Kierkegaard
Sex at Dawn
Just Kids, Patti Smith
Tropic of Cancer, Miller
Kobo Abe, The Face of Another
Emile Zola, Theresa
Lenny Bruce, How To Talk Dirty and Influence People
Dostoevsky, Notes From Underground
Nina Simone, I Put A Spell On You
I thought I coined the term optimistic nihilism to refer to my personal philosophy (I didn't), but an actual philosophy major acquaintance (brother) explained that what I meant was more of a Camus-style existentialism and recommended the Myth of Sisyphus. That was great for a while, but I suspected in practice it was a very convenient and self-serving philosophy: when something is bad, it is meaningless and absurd; when something is good, feel free to enjoy it (and secretly hope it will get better, even though that's not what existentialism is actually about). I don't remember if it was Nietzsche or The Joker from The Dark Night who asked (roughly) "If god is dead, why do we keep living as if our actions mean something?"
Anyway, my philosophy chops really aren't that studied (I doubt I'm fooling anyone into believing otherwise), but it's the sort of thing that will inevitably come up in conversation.
I'd like to go to the movies more, both new and vintage.
But... to actually answer the question as stated, not as implied: Probably reading stuff, or doing the work I need to finish by Monday before the weekend makes me forget that I even have a job.
