My self-summary
A driven writer, an avid reader, an obsessive fan of music. I like stuff and things. I cling to the idea of warm weather. I'm in that stage of life where I need to move forward, be productive, and possibly have a dance party.
What I’m doing with my life
Working. Playing music. Over-criticizing my work. And my music. Uh, I read a lot and spend copious amounts of time with a family-like group of friends.
I’m really good at
My greatest talent is my writing, though I suppose I have minor skills: I can speak, at length, about Duckburg (not particularly marketable but mildly amusing), over-analyzine literature (less amusing), and drink respectably.

I can't do cartwheels. If that's a requisite skill you're looking for, might as well stop reading now.
The first things people usually notice about me
My beard. An affectation for ill-fitting suits. Possibly messy hair.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
It is my opinion that JD Salinger is the greatest novelist of American letters, though I have an affinity for more modern writers, particularly the Literary Brat Pack, Dave Eggers, and Jeffery Eugenides. I've been reading or rereading some older writers, getting deeper appreciation for Fitzgerald and Hemingway. Also, too much John Irving and Philip Roth.

The deep running nerd nature I have coursing through me also sends me off on long rambles of comic reading, particularly Marvel super heroes, indie graphic novels, and the Vertigo line of old.

Cinema: Wes Anderson, Stanley Kubrick, the Coens, Noah Bambauch, Miranda July.

And music, lord, the extent: Neutral Milk Hotel, a bulk of the Saddle Creek artists (oh, Kasher, you devilish genius), Spoon, Okkervil River. That whole lovely indie rock world, tempered as it is by classic folk (Dylan, Young) and bands like The Smiths and The Cure. The Appleseed Cast should be mentioned, and The Decemberists.
The six things I could never do without
Glasses, pen, notepad, a book, a device capable of playing music, and an over-inflated desire to play with language.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Fiction and it's place in the world, in the creation and reading of it. What I'm doing with my free time. Should I get a haircut? What should I be for Halloween? Where's the party?

How to be as efficient as possible in regards to how much fun I'm having.
On a typical Friday night I am
Track down good people, drink and be merry with them, and then find my way home, having reached maximum glory.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I spend more time considering the potential socio-political commentary of the cartoon 'Doug' than is fitting for a man my age.
You should message me if
You like long walks on the beach. No, wait. Um.
If you like long, tangent-filled conversations, laughing at stuff other people don't find funny, and enjoy adventure of the 'how'd we get here' variety.
You have superpowers or happen to know how one acquires superpowers.
If you want book recommendations.

(But, seriously: superpowers)
