My self-summary
Sharp mind with a soft heart seeks same.

"The Grand Budapest Hotel" is coming soon to Thalian Hall's Cinematique series! "You see, there are still faint glimmers of civilization left in this barbaric slaughterhouse that was once known as humanity." Screwball comedy meets wistful reverie on the Empire of Empire. Who's in?!

Oh, the challenge of the verbal selfie. Here goes...travel, intelligent independent women, baseball, art, Latin America, my dog, progressive politics, punk rock, open-minded and creative friends, theatre & performing arts, discovering new places, trying new restaurants, goofy fun, hiking, live music, bowling, conversation both stimulating and not-so-serious.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm a university professor. Moved to Wilmington six years ago after many years in southern Arizona. Loved the desert and I'm loving the ocean now.
I’m really good at
trivia, crossword puzzles, making people laugh, dropping "bon mots" in the wrong places
The first things people usually notice about me
My eyeglass frames. They've stayed the same but at various times have signified nerd, punk, retro, emo, hipster, pseudo-intellectual, and pretentious jackass.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
mostly non-fiction, especially history, anthropology & pop culture, love James Ellroy novels; movies of all kinds, classics to what passes for indy: Coen Brothers fanatic & so many documentaries; eclectic musical taste from punk rock to bebop jazz to surf guitar to early country; current restaurant faves: Tandoori Bites, Indochine (everyone says that), Los Primos (R.I.P.)
The six things I could never do without
my dog
my career
travel
music
air
Indian food
I spend a lot of time thinking about
why I'm thinking about things in the way that I'm thinking about them. ( I'm a critical theory and reflexivity casualty)
On a typical Friday night I am
scheming to make it less typical. Any ideas?
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm an ironclad marshmallow. With another one inside.
You should message me if
you hate to laugh and love long walks on hot asphalt. And if you think that's funny.
