more seriously, and in particular, i want to be a professor at a small liberal arts college, similar to the one where i did my undergrad.
at the moment, i'm a teaching assistant: for two out of three classes a week i sit around and listen to lecture, and then on fridays i lead class discussions
...also i suppose my sense of humor, my somewhat aloof but amiable character, my interest in the contradictory as well as all things "meta", and my love for puns. and maybe my beard?
but in case the reader is also a philosophy nerd, let me list some authors that are more in line w what i actually read on a constant basis and who influenced the development of my own thoughts: nagarjuna, shantideva, dharmakirti, abhinavagupta, zhuangzi, donald davidson, hans-georg gadamer, paul ricoeur, gwf hegel, martin heidegger, baruch spinoza, friedrich nietzsche, renee descartes, anita avramides, arindam chakrabarti, thomas nagel, ludwig wittgenstein, jean-paul sartre, peter strawson and his son galen strawson. this list is constantly growing and evolving - i have my eye on an almost endless list of other authors whom i fully intend to get involved with, but have, as of present, not dealt with in any significant manner. theres also plenty of others i have delved into, but who have yet to make a significant impact on my thinking and writing.
movies: The Big Lebowski; Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas; Moon; Waking Life; Seven Psychopaths; The Cable Guy (easily the most underrated Jim Carrey movie); I Heart Huckabees; Lucky Number Sleven; Ip Man (1 and 2); Fifth Element; Choke; Nick Cage movies (namely Con Air, The Rock, and Faceoff... hes the best overactor since William Shatner); What Dreams May Come; Fight Club; All Batman movies (yea even the shitty ones with Val Kilmer and George Clooney - they're fun to laugh at; but especiall christopher nolan's versions); all the Die Hards; Black Dynamite; A Scanner Darkley; Wet Hot American Summer; Being John Malkovich; Caddyshack...i'm also fond of anything Sam Rockwell is in and mostly anything by Stanley Kubrick or Quentin Tarantino
tv: don't watch many shows religiously - like i don't really set time aside to specifically watch any particular show. the ones i occasionally do are South Park, Its Always Sunny in Philadelphia, The Daily Show, Colbert Report, Workaholics, The League, The Kroll Show, The Jeselnik Offensive, Breaking Bad... i mostly watch whatever is on Comedy Central, FX, AMC, and Adult Swim...but I also watch a lot of History, History2, Discovery, DiscoveryScience, Animal Planet, and NatGeo. sometimes i dont quite watch shows, but just leave them on as background noise when i read
music: i like funky, jazzy, jammy, bluesy grooves, and of course some classic rock. Lettuce, STS9, James Brown, Phish, Mos Def, Hypnotic Brass Ensemble, Jurassic 5, Medeski Martin & Wood, Snoop, The Meters, Hot Tuna, Parliament-Funkadelic, Dizzy Gillespi, Talib Kweli, The Doors, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Led Zeppelin, Grateful Dead, Soulive, Radiohead, The Beatles, Rolling Stones, CSNY, Pink Floyd, Cake, Sly and the Family Stone, Bob Dylan, Bob Marley, Wu-tang, Toots & the Maytals, Galactic, Herbie Hancock, Bonobo, Beastie Boys, Elton John, The String Cheese Incident, Rodrigo y Gabriela, PROJECT Trio, Maceo Parker many many many more...
food: i have a terribly indiscriminant palate, so i'd try mostly anything - i think - and don't like anything in particular. italian, mexican, chinese, thai, japanese, korean, i'll eat whatever...i eat mostly the same things all the time though - theres not much variety in my diet these days. i dont really give too much thought to food, although i'm increasingly becoming aware that i probably should
sports: hockey (i played in high school and its by far my favorite sport), football, and baseball. never could get into basketball really, though ive tried (ill watch a game if its on at a bar or something, and ill root for the knicks, but i cant really get into it the way i get into hockey and football). i'd probably rather watch soccer, rugby, and cricket before i watch basketball. i've been getting into playing ultimate frisbee lately
games: haven't owned a console in a while, but i love me some arkham asylum and, more generally, first-person shooters. in terms of table-top games i'm a big fan of settlers of catan, uno, and cribbage. i also occasionally do the dominoes and chess. in terms of bar games i've recently got pretty into pool (your standard 8-ball), shuffleboard and have always been a fan of darts. for lawn games, i love me some cornhole and quoits (though i havent had a chance to play quoits since i was a kid). bocce is really fun too. and so is can-jam. and horseshoes
2. music (we want the funk!)
3. beer (rogue dead guy, magic hat #9, sierra nevada pale ale or blue point hoptical illusion would be preferable; though i'm recently becoming fond of Lagunitas Little Sumpin' and Coronado Idiot. but there aint nothing wrong with a classic PBR. or a bud heavy for that matter)
4. computer (w/ internet...bc whats the use of a computer without the internet)
5. friends/family (i consider my closest friends to be family)
6. a list of things i could never do without (bc how could someone with a list of things they could never do without do without a list of things they could never do without?)
most recently, about how to expand on my dissertation topic: what is the significance of the "you", the second, as opposed to the first or third, person? in what ways do my recognition of you as a "you" and my addressing you and the things i attest to in doing so shed light on my knowledge of your existence as a "you" (that is, as a me thats not mine), my concept of what it means to "have a mind" or be a "self" in general, and the values that shape the world of interpersonal interaction? so i guess my interest is really in the microcosm of short range interpersonality: networks of close friends, family, as well as the people you interact with on a daily basis like maybe the bus driver, the cashier at the food store, the bartender at your favorite bar, etc. broader, more abstract categories like institutions, societies, and communities are integrally - and concretely - related to these second person relations, but i'm trying to focus on these more concrete, immediate relations before i try to handle those broader aspects.
