I really like doing things and going places, but i also like a quiet night at home. I love to cook, but I really enjoy eating out. I like taking long walks through places I've never been, but it's nice to be a regular sometimes. I can brush off minor obstacles and frustrations but get infuriated at the big injustices. I liked the movie, but I liked the book better.
I am creative, droll, and sincere

music: I mostly listen to electronic music (ed banger, valerie labels), rocksteady (skatellites, or via pandora), guitar-driven indie bands from the 90s or modern bands that sound like guitar-driven indie bands from the 90s. And it is guaranteed that if a song is playing in a store, I will be humming it five minutes after I leave. Any song, every where, all the time.
Books: left to myself, I tend to read a lot of science fiction or whatever hot young author the Awl is going nuts over. So I joined a book club a couple of years ago, and now I mostly read what other people pick for me. which I like, because between reading news online, and blogs and instapaper, I feel like I spend most of my time reading what I want to read, and it’s nice to see what someone else thinks is interesting and dig in to things I wouldn’t have otherwise picked.
Television. I work in television, too much to list. I tried to make a top ten once, but it was too mind-bending. Still, you’ve read this far, and I’m not going to give up on you. The Americans, Breaking Bad, Mad Men, Thrones, The Wire, Deadwood, West Wing. P&R/30 Rock, Louie, Venture Bros, Larry Sanders, Community, AD.
