when i'm not teaching, i spend most of my time working on the two books i have coming out next year. the first is a book on german idealism, psychoanalysis, and american romanticism; the second is an edited collection on philosopher slavoj žižek (youtube him) and literary theory. when i'm not doing either of those things, i write and play music for the band misconstruity. we're recording a new album in the near future--hopefully before the album format goes extinct. (has it already??) we do mini east coast tours once in a while.
what else? i like watching and talking about good films and tv shows (ok, maybe some trashy ones too); debating politics; making people laugh (stand-up comedian in either a previous or next life); sushi; technology; masquerading as a philosopher rather than a literary critic.
