I fix the things people write. I try to make things happen. Looking for more touring opportunities. I hear you knocking.
I am a wicked dancer and record curator; and cocktail mixer...I am too clever by half, but also exceedingly loyal to the people I am fond of.
I miss playing in bands. I've dusted off my rhodes and (child-sized) accordion lately.
Teaching. I have taught:
--as an adjunct professor
--a whole room of kids to play "Louie Louie" on the ukulele
--an entire bar to do the Hustle semi-spontaneously.
I might be good to date: I'm busy, I've got a lot on the go, but I'm still attentive; I'm always at the ready with jokes or cooking or records; I like to fool around all the time.
Riding a bike that's as old as me, or walking briskly. (Temporarily less brisk, see broken leg).
TV: Transparent, Fargo, The Knick. Things that you watch on your computer. Party Down, forever.
Music: (right now) I have too many records.
Also in music: Spaceman 3, old-school soul and funk 45s, the kinks, Fresh and Onlys...Alton Ellis or Toots and the Maytalls for the sound of pure happiness.
Play me something new, too.
I'm probably listening to krautrock or a podcast (radiolab, memory palace) if you see me on the street with headphones.
Books: Recently: Weird memoirs. Heidi Julavitz, John Jeremiah Sullivan, Patti Smith, Jennifer Egan, Etgar Keret, Andrew Solomon, Michael Chabon, always Nabokov, Marquez
food that surprises,
my terribly clever cat,
the colour orange.
I'm partial to cooks, jokers, loveable mop-tops, teachers (and people who can teach me something/anything from bass lines to languages); people who appreciate good value and nice wine.
You like a little banter. I don't want to email around forever, but a little effort beyond "Hey winky face," goes far.
