My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Born in Belgium, raised in the Bay Area, got "toughened up" in New York (i.e., reading philosophy and waiting tables and working construction), travelled to various countries to "broaden my horizons," currently residing in the Crescent City. A friend once described me as simultaneously the most serious and the silliest person they've ever known. I can sometimes come across as judgmental, but I really just have opinions, maybe even just hypotheses, none of which I take too seriously, most of which are probably me just thinking over something out loud, uncensored. I like children, animals and nature. Adults and books are also pretty good.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I write about three hours a day, which I usually enjoy, sometimes giggling like a loon, and then I read a lot and a person has to work to earn a living, so that leaves precious few hours for being the social butterfly I would otherwise greatly enjoy being. That is to say, I actually DO like people, socialization, etc., but the most I get out into the world is usually a half hour run or walk around the block, a chat with the roomie in the backyard. And then on a couple nights a week I find myself talking too much on ambling walks between bars and perhaps on a Sunday I'll be laying under a tree or driving through the Bayou with a friend. Long-term, I want to publish my novels (I've now written two, working on a third), save my pennies to buy a house (urban or country, still not sure) and raise a child or two with a lovely, WARM, supportive, secure, ambitious and otherwise perfect woman. But a lot could happen between now and then.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Listening, being quiet (solo or with others), talking (I suppose all variations on the scale of communication). Understanding, empathy, relating to people of all types (I've worked with academics, schizophrenics, autistics, junkies, homeless, blue collar, etc, and I honestly can't say which I like most, though it's not academics). Making people laugh or making people think deeply about something. Commitment, whether it be to a person or to a project, and honesty, sometimes to a fault. Helping people articulate their desires and needs (but there's a corollary weakness here in that I'm less good at articulating my own needs, being the solitary and strong man that I usually am and always believe myself to be).
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books: Don Delillo, Cormac McCarthy, Pynchon (though I can't understand more than 20%), Louis-Ferdinand Celine, Henry Miller, Roberto Bolano, WG Sebald, Dante, Dostoevsky, Nicannor Parra and crime novels.
Other: Wittgenstein and THE VISUAL ARTS (and Duchamp).
Movies: Snooty films usually of European origin, Antonioni, Tarkovsky, Godard, etc. Also, Cassavettes, anything made in NYC in the '70s. Romantic Comedies are my tub of ice cream when I'm truly down.
Shows: Modern dance, for me, is either the greatest or most truly god awful thing ever. I like Beckett and Brecht in theatre.
Music: Everything from Glenn Gould doing Bach to James Brown to Fugazi to Bob Dylan, except that decade he was on coke and Christianity. I like that crazy Mexican mariachi shit you find on the radio and everyone always thinks I'm joking, but that stuff makes me really, really happy. Paul McCartney's song, "Home in the Country," is motivational for me. Desmond Dekker is an excellent way to start the day.
Food: All of it and a lot of it. I like to strictly follow Italian recipes or whip together the old random ingredient stir-fry. When I'm down I exclusively eat from Verti Marte.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Love, friends, culture, nature, creativity, sex (in varying order depending on the current phase of my life, and I'd probably change this list in ten minutes so let's add a seventh thing, change).
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
My brain is a thoroughfare of ideas about the book I'm currently writing, ideas about the books I've been reading, snippets of song and human voices, things friends have said, passing scenery and female faces and bodies. Sometimes I snap out of this delightful revelry and neurotically check my bank-account to remind myself that I am in fact working towards the very "real-world" goal of one day buying a house, so as to have a family, etc. Then I go back to the first type of dreaming I mentioned.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Chatting with the roommate in the backyard or watching a movie or laughing at myself because I have a very silly way of dancing when I'm intoxicated.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I've lived in New York and Barcelona and have travelled through Asia, the Middle East and Africa, but things are a bit more low-key and focused now, which I like. My life has always been interesting (to me, that is), and I just don't try so hard anymore. I can come off as a whirlwind of energy and opinion, but I'm much more interested in everything EXCEPT myself and I pretty much just want to walk through a park or museum, have a conversation, laugh and smile (if I'm not writing or, let's be honest here, having amazing sex).
