My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I stay up too late and live in bookstores. I show up at parties for good meals and overheard conversations (both the profound and the inane).

I'm a researcher / librarian, cruising on East Coast charm and inherited intelligence. Employers accuse me of lateness and general over-qualification. I try to write.

I crash wrap parties for the open bar, but faculty parties for the conversation. By the way, a pressed shirt and post-production vocabulary are all you need to get past security in this town.

What else...

Intellectually, I'm pretty much an omnivore. I try to balance an appreciation of history and the humanities with exposure to the natural sciences. So... kind of like Schrodinger's cat playing with a Gordian knot. Yeah, that's not confusing.

I drink red wine, run at 2AM, read next to sleeping dogs, and sneak rum into movies. It makes a good thing better.

I can tolerate various vices in a partner (drugs, kleptophilia, knife-play). Just as long as you're not a mercurial, entitled, 8x10 glossy-type. This city's already stocked up.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Wake boarding through the undercurrents of the global economy. That means I'm starting a career as an academic librarian. Just finished a master's at UCLA, applying for a few degrees while I wait out the storm. Also, I work in information architecture, interactive design, user experience... all that modern jazz.
For pre-midlife crisis, I've decided to watch No Country For Old Men every month with a bottle of rum. Cheaper than a Porsche, safer than attacking whaling ships.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
1) Writing.
2) Running in freezing weather.
3) Calming angry dogs. I've got a whole Crocodile Dundee thing.
4) Re-creating overheard dialogue. The stupider, the better (see the website
5) Walking past security into access-controlled events, although I've been cutting back on this.
6) Avoiding the Sunset Strip.
7) Raging against machines, whilst inadvertently performing maintenance on said machines.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
"I used to be 'with it.' But then they changed what 'it' was.
Now what I'm with isn't it,
and what's 'it' seems weird and scary to me."
-- Grandpa Simpson
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I'm still more of a magazine reader, e.g. New Yorker, Harper's, NYROB. But I love non-fiction, esp. Joan Didion, George Orwell (superb memoirs) and Denis Johnson. Also, Wells Tower and Murakami are growing on me.

FILMS: Eternal Sunshine, No Country, Syriana, Children of Men, Michael Clayton, No End In Sight, Boogie Nights, Sexy Beast, Hoop Dreams, The Corporation. I'm into lighter fare too. Old School and How High are cinematic masterpieces.
I celebrate Noah Baumbach. I have ever since Kicking & Screaming. I also love Wes Anderson (strange then that The Life Aquatic wasn't better, no?). The rest of my interests will be revealed on a need-to-know basis.

TV: True Detective, Homeland, Girls, An Idiot Abroad, The Wire (required viewing for social scientists), Extras, Curb, Simpsons 2-8, early West Wing, Deadwood.
MUSIC: I don't know. It's jello v. pudding out there. Here are some genres that haven't been invented yet: Igneous rock, hip-hop dysplasia, jungle grunge, sub-prime house, math-garage. Hmm. That last one sounds pretty good.
FOOD: do it.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1) night running
2) clean air
3) dirty martinis
4) the occasional back-rub. Seriously. If you can give a good massage, I will repay.
5) Ladies with a sharp sense of humor (dry wit, verbal acuity, social observation). Sex is fun, but funniness is way sexy.
6) your smile, potentially.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
how many of my 'perfect matches' on OKC live in Brooklyn, and how I could never live there.
Grammar. Attorneys general. Kondratiev cycles. Snacking culture.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
If tonight was a representative sample, then I'm running 5 miles, drinking white russians, and watching Frontline.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I hotwired a 1930s tractor on my 21st birthday. My accomplice and I were pulled over in 8 minutes. 15 hours community service; now he's a physician and I'm in academia. The system works.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
1) you are a recovering smart-ass.
2) you take your humor black.
3) you don't have a problem with 3AM. I read late, but I've also never had a break-in.
4) you had your heart broken in the playoffs and need support during the off-season. Go Pack.
