My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I am widely considered to be the master of the single entendre.

Looking back, nostalgia is my only regret.

I grew up in a wood shop in the Junction; I've lived most of my adult life in Parkdale.

Yes, the wood shop thing is true.

My Dad used to say, "Don't burn your bridges." So I started napalming them.

Then I burned down his wood shop.

I hate the smell of sawdust in the morning, or any other time of day.

I don't want to go back in time, I want to bring time to me.

I am naturally contrarian, and I am quietly annoyed by cliches and wise old sayings meant to convey ageless wisdom, which always seem to lack insight. But maybe it's a blessing in disguise!

I'm not always serious.

But seriously, I am willing to meet people just to have fun. But I am looking for a relationship, eventually, but not just with anyone who fits my application requirements. We have to have chemistry, too: we should both have carbon, oxygen, hydrogen, nitrogen. Or it's just not going to work if one of us is not human.

Now I feel guilty about my chauvinistic, human-centric xenophobia as expressed above. Sorry, I'm only human.

I am anti-stalker.

I actually don't have application requirements. I get along with most people who are engaged mentally. Someone who wants to tell me insightful things. Someone who realizes that I am by far the most modest person in the entire world. Gets irony. Likes analyzing creative ideas using reason, realizing that they function together in spite of what Wordsworth says. Someone who is passionate about narrative art (in the broad sense) and/or philosophy. Doesn't have unresolved anger problems that get dumped on others. However, I don't mind introspective, unresolved existential anxiety; that's worldly and sexy, and I suspect those who scoff at it have small souls. There, I said it.

Stinky cheese & non-stinky fruit

Lately I'm reading a lot of books by women with female, first-person narrators. Secretly I am hoping this will help me understand women. I guess it's not a secret now.

Beauvoir, Milan Kundera, Amy Hemple, Byron, Orwell, Houellbecq, Julie Hecht, The Guilt Emails (By my Mom), Dostoyevsky, Paul Auster, Quine, Saul Bellow, Arendt, Wittgenstein, Lynne Trusse, Spinoza, Ian McEwan, Will Self, Marx (Groucho and his brothers Karl and Engels), Jorge Luis Borges, Umberto Eco, Sartre, Dorothy Parker; Scrooge McDuck comics.

I like reading literary essays by great fiction writers about other great fiction writers.

NYT Review of Books

I have the movie poster for Happiness over my sleigh bed,
makes for happy tobogganing

The Secretary
Glengarry Glenross
Apocalypse Now
The Affliction
Mike Leigh, Lars Von Trier, Woody, Ken Loach, Charlie Kaufman. Kitschy action-sci-fi (ie., Paul Verhoven)

TV, I must admit I don't invest much in it, except for the news satire shows, which I heart.

The Clash, The Talking Heads, The Deadly Snakes, Louis Armstrong, Iggy Pop, Leonard Cohen, Etta James, James Brown, Nick Cave, Nirvana, Lou Reed, Miles Davis. And some indie artists, such as Mozart & Bach, Etta James, Jelly Roll Morton, Kid Ory. New Orleans Jazz in general impresses me.
