My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm a student and wannabe writer with a passion for conversation, literature, friendship, people-watching, radical politics, and the occasional crazy adventure. I can't stand pretension and love a good sense of humor -- the darker the better.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I want to be a writer; the problem is how to get there. In the meantime I'm studying Comparative Literature and figuring shit out.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Reading people and books; being lovably neurotic; holding intellectual conversation without making it a cock-size competition.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
That I'm pretty loud; my hat.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

I think I'm going to take the risk of making this part long, not in order to namedrop but in order to paint a picture of the sort of things I'm interested in. I'm of the opinion that everything on this list is worth taking a bullet for, whatever that's worth.

I'll probably forget everything of any importance; I'm awful at thinking of things off the top of my head. Well, here goes...

BOOKS: Homage to Catalonia & various essays by George Orwell; Leaves of Grass by Walt Whitman; Howl & the other poetry of Allen Ginsberg; Gravity's Rainbow & V. by Thomas Pynchon; The Stranger & The Myth of Sisyphus & various essays by Albert Camus; The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald; The Trial by Franz Kafka; Dubliners & The Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man by James Joyce; To the Lighthouse by Virginia Woolf; A Hundred Years of Solitude by Gabriel Garcia Marquez; The Savage Detectives by Roberto Bolano; Blood Meridian by Cormac McCarthy; The Illiad and the Odyssey by Homer; The Metamorphoses by Ovid; Faust by Goethe; King Lear & Hamlet & Macbeth & The Merchant of Venice & The Tempest by William Shakespeare; The Communist Manifesto & various essays by Karl Marx; various essays and speeches of Emma Goldman; Madame Bovary by Gustave Flaubert; The Conquest of Bread by Pyotr Kropotkin; An Enquiry Concerning the Principles of Morals & An Enquiry Concerning Human Understanding & various essays by David Hume; various poems by Catullus; The History of the Peloponnesian War by Thucydides; various stories and essays by David Foster Wallace; various stories by George Saunders; Nausea & No Exit & various essays by Jean-Paul Sartre; The Open Work & various stories & various essays by Umberto Eco; a whole bunch of poets, novelists, essayists, theorists, historians, and obscure lunatics of various disciplines or none I'm forgetting.

MOVIES: Citizen Kane & F For Fake & The Trial & everything else I've seen and haven't seen by Orson Welles; Rushmore; Royal Tenenbaums; No Country For Old Men; Fargo; Metropolis; Manhattan; Annie Hall; Midnight in Paris; Deconstructing Harry; Bonnie and Clyde; Pixar films; Akira; Spirited Away & Ponyo & Princess Mononoke & other Miyazaki films; Fantasia & The Lion King & other (good) Disney films; My Dinner with Andre; The Decameron & Salo & other Piero Pasolini films; The Great Dictator & other Charlie Chaplin films; Blade Runner; the original Star Wars trilogy; Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan; Slacker; Clerks II; a bunch of other films.

MUSIC: Indie, classical, jazz, rap made before about 2004, electronica, pop that doesn't make me want to gauge my ears out.

FOOD: Latino food; Chinese; barbecue; burgers; and best of all, ice cream (I like to think of myself as a connoisseur).
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
HEAVY STUFF: The long, dark twentieth century; fascism; how (or if) we can make art matter again; the surveillance society; the coming political and ecological crisis; ways to revitalize people's sense that they can take control of their own lives; whether a better world is possible; trends in global literature; how (or whether) to oppose various sorts of neuroscientific and psychological reductionism; continental philosophy; the things I've been too lazy to write down that I'm afraid I'm going to forget and lose forever.

LIGHTER STUFF: Boys and boy problems; my friends' latest gossip; how I'm going to be entertaining myself for the rest of my life; whether I should learn another language; books, films, music, video games, etc. I've experienced lately; the way things seem so peaceful right before the sun rises when you've been up the whole night thinking.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Probably in the midst of a conversation that'll last until five in the morning. Alcohol may or may not be involved.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
One morning not so long ago I awoke after a night of restless dreams to find that I'd become an anarchist.
