I'm looking for a strong-willed, intelligent, cheerful, active woman. If my friends were describing me they would probably mention my sense of humor, my dependability, and the fact that I am up for anything. I prefer small groups of people but big parties are fun too. Often deep in thought, but generally a light-hearted person. I love applying pragmatism to problems and figuring things out. I live for the those rare conversations that go deep into the night, where you make connections across art and culture and science, and get down to the essence of things.
Activities include playing piano, bass, and guitar, listening to music, live music (where most of my money goes), walks and hiking, biking, tennis, trying to see all of the great movies, bar trivia, museums, lying in the grass and staring at clouds, exploring neighborhoods, cards and board games, and hanging out on porches and balconies. Most of all just generally exploring St. Louis and finding all the cool things to do and see. Also I have a book of every Beatles song with words and chords, so guitar sing-a-longs are a frequent past time.
Nonfiction: The Dragons of Eden by Carl Sagan, The Elegant Universe by Brian Greene, People's History of the United States by Howard Zinn, Language of the Land by James Stephenson, Wilderness and the American Mind by Roderick Frazier Nash, and Christ Stopped at Eboli by Carlo Levi. I love a debauchery-filled autobiography, especially Keith Richards and Dr. John's, and good essay collections, especially David Foster Wallace stuff and Pulphead by John Jeremiah Sullivan, who is the heir to DFW's throne.
Fiction: Infinite Jest by David Foster Wallace, Cat's Cradle by Kurt Vonnegut, Blood Meridian by Cormac McCarthy. So many more
Plays: I used to live near Chicago, so basically anything at Steppenwolf or the Goodman, and specifically God of Carnage, Art, Killer Joe, and One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest. I haven't been to a play in St. Louis yet, but I hear good things.
Favorite movies: O Brother Where Art Thou, The Big Lebowski, Saving Private Ryan, Dumb and Dumber, Ace Ventura, Tommy Boy, Tombstone, There's Something About Mary, Apocalypse Now, Bonnie and Clyde, Silence of the Lambs, The Thing (1982 Kurt Russell version), Terminator 2, The Artist, Animal House, The Good, the Bad & the Ugly, The Last Waltz, Stop Making Sense, Dude Where's My Car. Shut Up Little Man and I Like Killing Flies. Documentaries rule.
TV: I don't watch much tv, but: Mr. Show with Bob and David, Seinfeld, Friends, 30 Rock, Broad City, Reno 911, Key & Peele, Mad Men, Arrested Development, Cosmos, Flight of the Conchords, The State, Daily Show, Colbert Report
Music: Beatles, Soul Coughing, Best Coast, jazz from the 1940's - 60's, 70's Funk, Bear Hands, Tune-Yards, LCD Soundsystem, My Morning Jacket, Ohio Players, The Meters, Dr. John, Steely Dan, Stevie Wonder, David Bowie, Nirvana, Jamie Cullum, Ben Folds, The Pretenders, any bluegrass, 90s rock, reggae, ska. So much more. Michael Buble
Classical: Liszt, Debussy, Gershwin, Chopin, Beethoven, Mozart
