I'm kind of in love with John Steinbeck and Ian Fleming. They're my go-to guys. I've only recently rediscovered fiction after being in academia for the past six years and am burning though books at a rate of one per week and a half.
//music: Childish Gambino. Kanye West. Marina & the Diamonds. LIGHTS. Vampire Weekend. Tegan and Sara. Patrick Wolf. Mika. Nicki Minaj. Hurts. 2NE1. Scissor Sisters. Robyn. Freelance Whales. Kylie Minogue. Darren Criss. Matt & Kim. Iggy Azalea. Adele. Robin Sparkles. Lorde. Haim. Musicals.
Also, I have terrible taste in music. I acknowledge that.
//foods: Pork buns. Beet pickled eggs. Vanilla pudding. Bagels with cream cheese and smoked salmon. Cheese. Samosas. Sandwiches. ("I believe that all anyone wants in this life is to sit in peace and eat a sandwich.") Split pea soup. Milksteak. Cheesy Blasters. (Picky eaters need not apply.)

Top Gear. Anthony Bourdain's No Reservations. Queer as Folk. Regular Show. Torchwood. Bomb Girls. Soap operas. Misfits. Downton Abbey. Luther. Sherlock. Are You Being Served? Keeping Up Appearances.

Orange is the New Black. Masters of Sex. Broad City. The Mind of a Chef. Black Fraiser. Bitchhunter.
I also admit that I watch a lot of trashy TV. I'm not proud of that fact, but I'm not ashamed to say that I'll watch Keeping Up with the Kardashians/Here Comes Honey Boo Boo/Ghost Adventures (a show that I have nicknamed Ghost Bros: Bros in the Dark)/Intervention/Hoarders: Buried Alive. I have also been known to watch daytime soap operas. (Formerly As the World Turns, currently General Hospital.) It's cool if you judge me based on this confession, I judge me. (Look at your life, look at your choices.)
I will, without fail, watch a documentary about the Titanic, nature or outer space even if I've already seen it a half dozen times.
I'm an advanced TV watcher, so TV is a pretty big deal to me. We probably won't get along if you don't watch any TV.
//movies: Jurassic Park. A Blaffair to Rememblack. Who Dat Ninja?
I have to admit that I tend to gravitate towards documentaries when it comes to movies. And that I am terrible at seeing movies in the theater. I have a whole list of excuses as to why I don't go to the movies: it's expensive, I don't want to put on pants, what if I want to lie down, what if I want a meatloaf sandwich, etc.
// My iPhone. (Oh god, how did I ever live without you?)
// My college ring. (I feel naked without it.)
// An unlimited Metrocard.
// Pie. (Especially in peach or apple varieties.)
// My Moleskine planner.
// Where I can find a cheap, delicious burrito at two in the morning.
// When I'm going to get around to writing that paper about the religious symbology in Kanye West's music video for POWER.
// How to cite rap lyrics in an academic paper. See above.
// Okay, you know that little box on the right hand side of someone's profile that says, 'similar users,' and then it lists a bunch of people with characteristics like, 'more desiring of sex,' or 'less adventurous?' I spend a lot of time thinking about what it says under my username. I once saw that someone was 'thriftier' than the person who's profile I was currently on and I laughed and went CLICK.
// Why people use group photos as their profile pictures. Okay, I get that you have friends, but when you're with a group in your profile picture I DON'T KNOW WHO YOU ARE. And then I hope that you're the hot one.
// Why so many people have professional looking head shots as their profile picture.
I'm also super into cooking right now. I make a mean bread pudding but my scalloped potatoes still need some work.

You're the guy from PBS's Idea Channel. No, seriously. That guy can get it. If you're him, message me ASAP so we can nerd out.
You want to merc some brunch.
You have a beard and/or glasses. I'm kind of a sucker for that. Smart and short dudes, unpretentious intellectuals, Doctor Who fans, Westsiders/Upper Manhattanites, and snappy dressers need apply.
