Now, about me:
I like chickens. I like astronomy (but not NdGT--he's a Pluto-hater). UPDATE: I watch Cosmos now and NdGT is pretty legit. I watch TED talks and have weird crushes like Brian Cox (Large Hadron Collider Scientist) and Adam Savage from Mythbusters. I have two cats and I also like dogs, but not smelly ones. I love crossword puzzles, trivia, word games, and the oxford comma (I'm a member of Mensa). I love dive bars and live music (if it's not Sublime).
I love freshly made guacamole, wine tasting, and I've been known to steal baby jesuses from plastic front yard nativity scenes only to return them on Easter. I recently began enjoying craft beer, and I'm from Cleveland originally.
I voted for Obama. I have tattoos. If you believe in God, I believe in the Flying Spaghetti Monster. I went to Catholic school. I don't like liars. I like tall people. Steve Martin is my surrogate father. I told him so on Twitter. Still waiting to hear. UPDATE: still haven't heard.
Podcasts: This American Life. Q. Comedy Bang Bang. WTF. Radiolab. Wait Wait Don't Tell Me. Fresh Air.
Books: all of them. My favorites are The Little Prince and Illusions: Adventures of a Reluctant Messiah (Richard Bach). Mostly a Gore Vidal reader, but I enjoy a Jon Stewart essay or Steve Martin book just as well. Neal Stephenson, Gaiman, David Foster Wallace, and Murakami for light reading.
Music: (add "the" where necessary, except to "the the", because that would just be silly): Cure, Smiths, Duran Duran, The The, Elliot Smith, Jeff Buckley, Rolling Stones, Cake, Bloodhound Gang, Weezer, Kate Bush, Bush, They Might Be Giants, Flaming Lips and many, many more. I would also like to give a shout out to my local homies; Buzzkill Romantics, Blizzard, yours truly's Velvet Tongue, The Displaced, The Q, Spell Toronto, Bad Credit, Reeve Oliver, Jenn Grinels, Curtis Peoples, The Biddy Bums (don't add another "the" to the Biddy Bums), Channing Cope, A Beautiful Noise, Secret Apollo, Japanese Sunday, Buckfast Superbee, Anya Marina, Emery Bird, Emerson Band, Yovee, Evervess, The Afterparty, Hot Like (A)Robot, Waterline Drift, Campaign for Quiet, Scarlet Symphony, Divided by Zero and all the other bands that we've played with but I forgot to mention and I'm getting tired sorry.
