"If you're honest, you sooner or later have to confront your
values. Then you're forced to separate what is right from what is
merely legal. This puts you metaphysically on the run. America is
full of metaphysical outlaws."
What I’m doing with my life
Just moved to Moscow. Working in/for/with a theater company for a
year. First new word learned upon arrival: шпион.
I’m really good at
bad puns, bitter drinks, scale models, hyperbole, polysyllabics,
talking myself into a hole
The first things people usually notice about me
"YOU HAVE SUCH A SQUARE FACE!"
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Muldoon, Foster Wallace, Millhauser, Updike, Thomas, Wilbur,
Bradbury, Rambert, Bulgakov, Mann, Chekhov, Tolstoy, Wilde,
Labyrinth, 2001, Sweet and Lowdown, the Karen Carpenter biopic made
with Barbie dolls;
Cocteau Twins, Sonic Youth, Aphex Twin, Boards of Canada, and
Animal Collective, Daniel Johnston, Sage Francis, Why?, Stephen
Sondheim, Etta James, The Mountain Goats, and The Tallest Man on
And I will put hot sauce on anything.
The six things I could never do without
Mars Lumographs, paint clothes, toe socks, Dr. Bronner's, granola,
and @Horse_ebooks (RIP).
I spend a lot of time thinking about
the mechanics of space and time, the necessity of memory, the
durability of realism, Twitter
On a typical Friday night I am
having anything but a typical night
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
One time, I woke up in an empty apartment on Avenue Montaigne with
no clue as to how I'd got there, an empty package of chocolate
covered waffles, and three shoes.
You should message me if
you have ever made up a stranger's life story as you're walking
you have no problem laughing at image macros
you want someone to climb through your window and sit backwards on
a swivel chair like the guy from Clarissa Explains It
(is that weird?)
