My self-summary
Honestly, I'm looking for some creative and inspiring people to hang out with as I'm new to Vancouver. Anyone looking for (immodestly) an absolute gem of a new friend, message me.

I'm an old soul. I love great books. I love music. I record music. I'm inspired and excited. I'm a student. I'm an audiophile. I'm lost and daydreaming. Purveyor of fine female vocalists. Scientist, artist, nostalgist, chill vibrations extrordinaire. Bedroom architect and duvet connoisseur. Spiller of fine wines, admirer of old bicycles, burgeoning young naturalist seeking philanthropic jaded divorcee to finance a foray in the tropics
What I’m doing with my life
I studied biochemistry for a while because i was told that's what good people do. I graduated, I'm smarter now, I know more about the universe. It's beautiful, and perplexing I swear. So damn fascinating. I'm now feeling the crushing weight of youth, I love the freedom but I'm yearning. I'm a thinker. I'm a musician. I'm going back to school to think more and meet beautiful creative people, and create music because I daydream far too often not to make an eccentric out of myself
I’m really good at
Losing my page. Losing my book! Losing the keys. Offering wisdom. Finding myself hilarious. Feeling disillusioned. Chasing ideals. Finding great bands. Open-tunings. Woolgathering, analyzing dreams, knowing everything everything everything about love, knowing nothing and everything. Amazing at chilling hard. Criticizing the suburbs, feeling the profundity of nature. I'm beginning to feel lost in this generation. What happened to romanticism. I want landscapes, I want hugeness, I want sublimity. I'm great at finding wonderful things and great at loving the wonderful things you find. Show me things you love, especially music, especially music you write, or drawings you make, or poems. Not enough people dig deep enough, and share what they're passionate, or sarcastic, or bewildered, transfixed, enamoured, about concerning by or with. Find some beauty, and originality. I'm great at finding absurdity fascinating. I am great at finding ways to make small rooms feel absolutely wonderful. (Good lamps. Good lighting is key). I'm great at making tea in the morning and drinking half the pot. I'm great at pouring wine in the evening and drinking half the bottle
The first things people usually notice about me
Man. You're right, you're absolutely right, but people just don't think like that anymore. You're endearing and wise, and have a contagious smile. Sharply witted. Skipped the small talk. Easy-going
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Not even going to list music in detail. I love music obsessively and eclectically. Theres also this thing called the internet thats turned us all into aficionados of everything obscure and meaningful. Neil Young, and anything that exists because Neil Young is a musician who exists and once existed. Very often women. You soulful heart benders. Maternal all-seers, brokenhearted and wise women with instruments or not. American gold and rust, roots, country, whiskey drenched, revolver-strapped burlesque girls and honky-tonk piano. Folk, really the most recent manifestations of that genre- I think folk has become an all encompassing bracket that describes really beautiful simple music becoming more and more progressive. Constantines are probably my favourite band, Shine A Light is my favourite record of theirs. I love recordings that let you hear the hiss of the tubes in all the amps, the subtleties of long inured instruments, the nuances when a weathered musician plays simple chords on a guitar (no plectrums man!), the trails of whispered vocals, woodwind that lurks behind everything and warms it up, layered vocals and harmony, reverb, breathing and voice-breaks, the sound of the snare resonating in the same room as the band, organized chaos and grit, noise, sex, hair over the face lipstick smudged cigarette in hand, deadly heels on a beer soaked stage. Understated wisdom in lyrics, thoughtful percussion, all of this channeled through electronics, personalities, cultural enigmas. bad asses.

I read books all the time.
The modernists, Scott Fitzgerald James Joyce, and Virginia Woolf, Hesse, DH Lawrence, The existentialists, Sartre and de Beauvoir, Camus, Kundera, Orwell, Mann, Sylvia Plath, Patti Smith, Paul Haines, the Beats Kerouac and Ginsberg, Robert Service and Farley Mowat, Atwood, Dylan Thomas, Zizek, Adorno, Marcuse and the Frankfurt school, Shopenhauer, Nietzsche, Heidegger, Merleau-Ponty, Kuhn, Levins and Lewontin, Stuart Kaufmann, Marx.

The Science of Sleep, I don't know anything great and quirky, Wes Anderson, Woody Allen, David Attenborough, Paul T Anderson, any old film you're excited about, animation, band documentary, any any any documentary. Film festivals are great, I love good ridiculous comedies. Tim and Eric. The Room. Anything Jonny Greenwood scores and or has Daniel Day Lewis. Or Philip Seymour Hoffmann. Or Charlotte Gainsbourg. Scarlett Johanssen. Great books turned into movies. Movies set in Victorian England. Romance!

Food is the best. Better shared.

I spend a lot of time thinking about
Everything, and hopefully, in all honesty, sadly truly, possibly, regrettably you or someone like you
On a typical Friday night I am
Eating pho on unbelievable floating couches. Listening to an amazing album with great friends. If the sounds on Kaputt could be made into an evening. Long continuous streams of intermingling saxophones. Cold dark beers. High fives. Euchre maybe.
If you're a musician, things would be drastically different and more antisocial. It would be you and I alone doing covers of Ian and Sylvia in the mirror
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I grew up in a small suburban townhouse filled with cats. I made an OKCupid profile because I'm bored and curious

You're disillusioned by all the bros. You're a tea drinker, you're a musician, or you're a beautiful artist and or you wear great glasses and or you wear lipstick on occasion
