My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Hi, I'm Josh.

Bay Area native, and apart from a few overseas sojourns, I have been lucky enough to reside here these one score and six years.

I've spent much of the last few years ascending the Ivory Tower. Having recently summited the second rampart (an M.A. in the humanities), I gazed up at the vats of boiling oil being poured down upon me, decided to fashion my diploma into a makeshift hangglider and leapt.

Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Books - reading them, thinking about them, talking about them

Splitting my time between working on public programs at the Cartoon Museum in SF and at a very progressive political magazine in Berkeley. Both involve a lot of finding super cool art and contacting creators of said art, only one involves figuring out how to make a cocktail that would properly represent "the ooze" from Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.

before that was briefly working as an interpreter of dreams and amanuensis of prophecy. Mainly drawing visions of the Ibis headed god Thoth and creating powerpoint presentations detailing the secret power of pyramids. Craigslist etc jobs yields some interesting results.

Trying to use my powers for good.

I take breaks to go outside, sing, play piano, and interact with persons neither fictional nor deceased.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Drawing (mainly haggard old dudes)
Dancing preposterously
Riding bikes up hills
Singing karaoke
wearing silly hats
Remembering (useless?) facts and geographical data
Making burritos (breakfast or otherwise)
Playing R. Kelly's Ignition remix on piano (fairly mediocre at most other compositions, though my Springsteen/Taylor Swift mashup has met with modestly positive critical responses)
Using parentheses (apparently)

My jewfro. When I was living in Taiwan, people would frequently ask me if my hair was real, or just go up and touch it.

Possibly also my teal shoes matching my teal backpack, if in a locale in which a jewfro is not out of the ordinary.

My chariot, last of the great silver volvo station wagons that once roamed these lands in vast herds.

Any interesting history book, good ol' good ols like Edward Gibbon's Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire, current newspapers, 19th century newspapers, oral history collections, most of all the Cartoon History of the Universe, George R.R. Martin, Clockwork Orange, David Mitchell, Neal Stephenson, Alan Moore, Art Speigelman, Osamu Tezuka, Joe Sacco. Getting more into fiction, currently reading Hilary Mantel's Cromwell series and loving it.

Carl Sagan's Cosmos, Daily Show, Colbert, Deadwood, Rome, Game of Thrones, Breaking Bad, have watched the entirety of Honey Boo Boo, with much ambivalence.

Anything with unapologetic passion: BRUUUUUUUCE, covers of Bruce, Beethoven, Meat Loaf, Wagner, various other opera, Prince, Hall and Oates, David Bowie, Motown, Chromeo, Justice, other crunchy electronica, Henry Purcell, Queen, Warren Zevon, Dvorak, Jackson Browne, trashy pop (kind of in a major Ke$ha phase at the moment), NPR is my jam. all of the glorious productions of John Hodgman.

Tasty food, often hummus. not too into the cephalopods.

when I was in 5th grade, I drew a comic strip about Cap'n Crunch, Tony the Tiger, the Lucky Charms leprechaun, and other breakfast cereal characters going on time-traveling adventures.
