I like the big picture, but get off on the details.
I am a bostonian by blood, have travelled a bit but been back for a few years and if I dont run away like i want to i would like to keep digging for the soul of this city- have found a few gems so far- and an awesome treehouse apartment to settle into but -otherwise my imagination is turning my paychecks into plane tickets...
Oh yeah, and working on a way to get paid for it..
*went to art school for printmaking, illustration (&design)
In the meantime my life is spent taking more and more and more art classes at RISD, getting a TEFL certificate, doing as much bikram yoga as I can fit into my week, and at night Im serving up sass to cantabridgians & covertly leaving drawings on chalkboards..
graphic-designing, to-do-listing, getting lost in conversation, finding my way in a new city, giving advice/insight, misrepresenting myself, playing dumb? seeing multiple sides of an argument, maintaining an open mind/fresh perspective,
run. on. sentences., writing papers (despite the looks of these well-crafted list-sentences),
indecisiveness, bruising, remembering the details.
Recognizing people from a mile+ away, by gesture, gait, or clothing.
Murakami, Arundhati Roy, Alain de Botton, Etgar Keret, Yann Martel, Zadie Smith, Mark Twain, Mikhail Bulgakov, Virginia Woolf, Garcia-Marquez, Calvino, Saramago, DeLillo, Roth, Junot Diaz-holy shit.
(genre: flash fiction)
E.E. Cummings, Lawrence Ferlinghetti, Hafiz, Neruda,
(Calvin & Hobbes- always and forever)
* I love BOOKS. as objects. I have a whole shelf of books that are there just to be beautiful- old, or retro first-aid or boy-scout manuals is a growing collection. I am sort of against Kindle, for obvious reasons.
Coen brothers stuff, wes anderson (when it's done right), Amelie, wristcutters, Imaginarium of Dr. Parnassus, Snatch, Beginners, Princess Bride, Monty Python & the Holy Grail, the Fifth Element, A Life Less Ordinary, Pan's Labrynth, Dr. Strangelove..
Mad Men, Homeland(!), 30 Rock, the Daily Show, Louie, portlandia, also classics like seinfeld, the simpsons, arrested development
Also podcasts: really obsessed with Radiolab, WTF with Marc Maron, then the NPR stuff like This American Life, Fresh Air, TED radio hour etc..
(heres a smattering~)
old-school/new conscious hip hop, JDilla, TRex, David Bowie, Led Zeppelin, Old Blues (Muddy Waters, Howlin' Wolf), Sam Cooke, Chuck Berry, Elvis, , Nina Simone, Otis Redding, old punk (Operation Ivy, the Clash), Iggy Pop, Radiohead, the Cure, the Smiths, newer people i've gotten into Passion Pit, Yeasayer, TV on the Radio, Animal Collective, gogol bordello, devotchka, neko case, rubblebucket, tune-yards,
I try a Banh Mi in every new city I end up in, it's my destination sandwich. SF was the best so far.
Vietnamese fresh rolls FTW!
I've been putting honey mustard on anything that seems remotely plausible. I'm a little bit in love with avocado too. & arugula(!!)
all summer i pretty much subsisted on mangoes, now that it's fall i will probably subsist on apples. (...& whiskey + cider)
****the food world has taught me a lot about booze recently:***
**In love with nicely balanced IPAs, rye, bourbon- the perfect old fashioned or sazerac makes me happy, and weirdly, mezcal- if it's in the right cocktail is delicious.
*i've had bouts of vegetarianism, and feel healthier on that end of the spectrum, but tend to keep it fresh, light and protein-based when i can. that said, i do love bacon.
a good book
*good* coffee (working on doing without it...maybe we'll change that to water)
people that get it...
peppermint tea ( = it's gonna be ok)
*as a nomad, all of these things fit in my bag, on my person, or in my periphery
the way body and brain connect, how to relax muscles,
synesthesia and if I might have an alphabetical version of it,
imbuing the mundane environment with some magic, turning my life into a graphic novel - diagramming moments mentally,
trying to figure out why all my best creative ideas come to me in the middle of work when i have no immediate ability to take action (except a tiny notebook to write them down in)
the origin of words.
who would be in my apocalypse survival group (friends that farm, build things, etc..), survival kits,
how online social networking may possibly be deconstructing ours and our future generations interpersonal skills.... eek.
...aaand sometimes I just need to rest my feet.
I think real people have histories stranger than fiction... so i might just be a part of this website for the sake of my first novel... you've been warned.
*apparently i have a lot to share. open book.
(hopefully something beyond 'hey whatsup')
you agree that sense of humor is a sign of intelligence. (or have a solid case against it.)
you can hold an intelligent conversation and are not threatened by a girl who might challenge your convictions for entertainment..
(respectfully of course)
