What I’m doing with my life
Learning, constantly learning. Mostly reading non-fiction or listening to lectures on a variety of subjects. Trying to learn spanish using Duolingo. I've learned to say "el oso blanco come arroz." not going apace.

I like traveling. I've lived overseas a few times (Edinburgh, London, Sydney).

standardized tests.
punctuality.
fixing things.
puppy wrestling/wrangling.
trivial pursuit.
The first things people usually notice about me

Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
dive bars, hole-in-the-wall restaurants, and shows at tiny venues. a night out at a play or a city arts & lectures event, or a night in watching a movie. I listen to NPR in the kitchen or the car.

Had the best time rowing a kayak in the south pacific and camping on a beach under the stars....i like hitting random small towns for most local looking diners and bars and exploring the local claims-to-fame. I do a snowboarding trip to distant locales once a year with friends. basically, I like both indoorsy stuff and I like outdoorsy stuff.

music:

i was a college dj @ kvrx.org. My program was obscure british micro-label downtempo (it was the end of the 90s). I see a lot of shows at Great American, the Independent, and the Chapel.

movies:

Dead Man, Le Samourai, Breathless, Alphaville, the 400 Blows, M, Army of Shadows, Playtime, Seventh Seal, Wages of Fear, Five Deadly Venoms, Stray Dog, Ran, High & Low, Branded to Kill, Chushingura, Sonatine, Rosemary's Baby, Mystery Train, Bottle Rocket, Rushmore, The American Astronaut, Six-String Samurai, Slacker.

books:

Nonfiction, mostly. The Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire, Sansom's Japan Trilogy (Part 2: 1334-1615 is the Empire Strikes Back of Japanese historical texts), also, narrative histories like I, Claudius. I took a class in ancient Roman law in law school. I adore Plutarch's Lives. Most guys like that sort of thing, i guess.

for fiction, I liked Oe's 'A Quiet Life', Lynda Barry's "Cruddy", DFW's "Girl With Curious Hair."
The six things I could never do without
my dog, a paywall-less nytimes.com, college radio, fitted shirts, lectures on tape, fine-ish dining
I spend a lot of time thinking about
meals. a terrible song that got stuck in my head at lunch. is my dog going to die soon? he's going to be 11, and wikipedia says he's entering last stage.
On a typical Friday night I am

The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm actually 5'9" and 1/4"
