My self-summary
I like film, literature, indie rock, social justice, sushi, literary theory, feminists and feminism, queer theory, gender deconstruction, autumn, dressing in layers, striped socks, knee-high socks on women, knee-high socks on me, Other Music, the Kids in the Hall, Jackson Pollock, Constantin Brancusi, Julia Margaret Cameron, Eva Hesse, Bruce Timm, fleeting moments of transcendence, making out, and Danskos.

I taught myself to read at age three. I was walking at 10 months. I've had red, blue, and blonde hair at various times. (I might be a mutant.)

I tend to make passes at girls who wear glasses. I'm also a sucker for girls with short hair. I like gamines, geeky girls, and nerdy girls, but not exclusively.

I make really great mixtapes. (I will never call them playlists. Never!) I would move to the Bay Area just to be near Amoeba Records. I miss summers in Ithaca. I always cry at the end of Fargo. Pretty much from Marge's speech in the police car onward, without fail.

My extended family lived in Bushwick several decades ago (my uncle still lives in the same house), and I have conflicted feelings about the gentrification wave steadily rising there. (Of course, I lived in Boston's South End in the late '90s and have been in Astoria for the past seven years, so I'm hardly one to talk.)

I try to watch this once a month to readjust my humours: http://youtu.be/N2bCc0EGP6U

I've always tried to be this weird amalgam of punk and hippie values without the de rigueur churlishness of the former and the stereotypical self-satisfaction of the latter.

I am empathic and sincere, and I think too much.
What I’m doing with my life
Writing and editing for a nonprofit. Occasional author and poet.
I’m really good at
* listening.
* getting the right gift for the right person (so I've been told).

c. Community is (was?) extraordinary television. Louis C.K.'s show is phenomenal; I love it to death. Breaking Bad!!! I've gotten over my hatred of The Office (and no, I haven't seen the UK version and yes, I know I should), and I enjoyed falling in love with Parks and Recreation last year. Buffy/Angel/Firefly 4eva. Star Trek: Deep Space Nine is still my all-time favorite.

d. When in doubt, I trust in the three Roberts: Zimmerman, Pollard, and Smith.

I was also raised on country music, without irony. My mother, recently: "I don't understand anyone who doesn't like country music. It's perfect for dancing, it makes you feel happy, and the lyrics and the sounds work with each other, more than any other kind of music." Isn't she grand?

On a sadder note, I am still in utter shock about Jason Molina.

You should totally play my library (http://www.last.fm/user/yet_heart/library). Good times.

e. I have a real weakness for sake don, seaweed salad, duck, and cheesecake. (Not all at once.) The only thing I can't stand is orange marmalade. I try to eat at least one vegan meal a day.
The six things I could never do without
Black coffee, Moscow mules, my iPod, at least one Moleskine, le cinéma, hope.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Grad school greatly affected my long-form fiction reading, but I feel like I'm almost back to full capacity.

I'm really attracted to red hair and freckles. And tan lines. Formative pre-pubescent fixation.

Oh, and for a long time, I dreamt of being Mr. Sinéad O'Connor.

No earth signs, please. I've learned my lesson there.

And I'll paint your nails if you'll paint mine....
