I'm practically normal and I wonder how to fix that.
What I’m doing with my life
"Computers. I do computer things. Beep boop."
I'm a programmer for a no-longer-really-a-startup in SoHo. I'm
trying to balance that with writing songs, poems, and the fictional
history of a satirical church. Sometimes I write poems about the
Turing test. I hope someday to concoct the perfect Manhattan.
I’m really good at
Every so often I will discover a truly horrific pun.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Music: The Mountain Goats, The Hold Steady, Bob Dylan, Belle &
Sebastian, Andrew Bird, Thin Lizzy, lots of folk and indie and rock
Shows: The Wire, The Simpsons, Firefly, Futurama, Burn Notice,
Archer, Spaced. Smart (often British) comedies in general. If
there's nothing else on, Law & Order is always
Movies: In Bruges, Children of Men, spaghetti westerns, Airplane!,
Star Wars (not the prequels), The Matrix (not the sequels)
Books: Tolkien, Vonnegut, Asimov, William Gibson, Edgar Allen Poe,
Ray Bradbury, Douglas Adams, Mark Twain, Jack London, Jack
Food: is delicious.
The six things I could never do without
Oxygen, the English language, linear time, empty high places,
songs, and if I'm going to be completely honest, I probably
couldn't function without the internet.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How to be a mostly-functional human being, how to be a better
person, and the optimal place to stand while waiting for the train.
On a typical Friday night I am
Probably out with friends. I like a good drink and a good meal,
usually in the reverse order. Occasionally I'll stay in with a book
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Most of what I do doesn't make much sense to me but it seems to
mostly have worked out okay.
You should message me if
You need an accomplice.
