I get around by bike (and train), but I own no spandex, nor do I have a fixie. Purely utilitarian biker here. I do love me some bike lanes, though.
I once wrote that I don't go to church, I go to the movies instead. My religious fascination with the movies is pretty severe: I've done Saturday quintuple features without my ass getting numb once. Movies are photography, music, sound design, fashion, writing, interior design, and intense levels of coordinated craftsmanship all rolled into one. It's the art that combines all other arts, and I love it for that. And also, sometimes, it's a mindless way to entertain yourself. And that's fine too. If you think the movies are only good at being one or the other of these, and that there's something wrong with the other, then we're probably not going to get along.
I've driven across America.
I've been on nationally syndicated television, local public television and Russian TV.
I played cello in a post-punk band that featured a singer with a penchant for hanging Pinocchio in effigy from the mic stand.
I once spent half an hour helping Stevie Wonder pick out music.
I've run the NYC Marathon. Three times.
I've saved a wayward duckling.
I write. I'm a writer. It took a long time for me to feel comfortable saying that about myself. It still feels good.
