My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm a saxophonist and music professor. Having a career in music certainly comes with its sacrifices. For instance, you end up spending a lot of time listening to music as opposed to reading. Encouraging, I know. But I still consider myself fairly well-rounded.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I teach jazz studies and music theory at the u of r and try to play out as much as I can. I play in a classical saxophone quartet and a small jazz group. I also play in a good local salsa band. I'll play a few national dates a year, but I'd like to tour more, at least during the summers. I should probably hire a manager or some shit.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Messing up my sleep schedule.

I can execute a few eminem songs pretty well. I tried to karaoke him one time at a bar, but the rhythms were too tricky to be programmed properly on the backing track so it didn't really work out. Boy, that doesn't sound awkward.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Hair or maybe clothes...ya know, the important stuff.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Movies: Lynch, Kubrick, Goddard, Bunuel, Almodivar, Cronenberg (earlier stuff). This is the type of list that a film scholar would find particularly odious. I also love comedies: Christopher Guest films, all of the Ben Stiller/Owen Wilson stuff. Pretty much anything with Vince Vaughn. The older Adam Sandler movies were some of my early favorites, but I could even go back to Revenge of the Nerds and Moving Violations and stuff like that.

My favorite movie of all time is Belle de Jour. Made in USA (Goddard) is also an incredible film.

Shows: Parts Unknown, Curb your Enthusiasm. Seinfeld. SCTV, sort of; it was probably funnier at the time. Six Feet Under. Dexter. Real Time. Meet the Press, haha (I actually haven't been watching that lately).

Books: Camus, Burroughs, Henry Miller, Kurt Vonnegut, Flannery O'Connor, Shakespeare. Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man, Invisible Man, Crime and Punishment, Howl, the Bell Jar. Not much contemporary stuff, I guess. The Stranger is my favorite novel so far. Currently I'm trying to get through Kafka's the Trial.

Comedians: George Carlin, Sarah Silverman, David Cross is my favorite (although I will admit that he's kind of an asshole). As you can see, my knowledge of comedy is quite historical in nature, haha.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1. Turnip cakes from Flavors of Asia.

2. Good comedies, comedy shows and stand up.

3. Parole. Oh snap...I have watched a respectable amount of Lock Up in the past though.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Strategizing career moves; whether it be on a day to day level, or as a five year plan. Being paranoid, although it never seems like it at the time.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Either out with a friend or friends, playing a gig, or maybe staying in and ordering a pizza or something really exciting like that.
