My self-summary
Harvard dropout, transplanted San Franciscan, atheist, feminist, Marxist, supporter of Occupy, Doctors without Borders, Harmontown, the Oxford comma, and the Browncoats. Bon vivant, raconteur, Blue Blaze Irregular.

Trying to live my life like it's a Steve McQueen movie... with less driving.

"When someone asks you if you're a god, you say, "Yes!""

Also, I am a master of karate and friendship for everyone.

Things I believe:
Han shot first.
Nick Carraway killed Gatsby.
Lyanna Stark is Jon Snow's mother.

Radio play I did:
What I’m doing with my life
Shooting at the walls of heartache, sowing the seeds of love, stepping on Superman's cape, never dreaming it's over, building this city, changing the color on my parachute, walking in Memphis, losing my religion, not fearing the reaper, wang chunging tonight and every night.
I’m really good at
Explaining why Casablanca is not a love story
Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon
Wang Chunging
The first things people usually notice about me
My majestic bearing, my prepossessing demeanor. my steely and authoritative gaze, the resplendency of my comportment, or the fact that I'm drooling on myself a little.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Archer, Community, Jane the Virgin, Walking Dead, Downton Abbey, Black Dynamite, Scandal, Shameless, The Detour, The League, McLaughlin Group, Crazy Ex-Girlfriend, always Angel and Buffy, Arrow.

Raymond Chandler, Ernest Hemingway, Joyce Carol Oates, Thomas Pynchon, Vladimir Nabokov, The Iliad, Moby Dick, Don Quixote, the Thin Man. Conan, Riverworld, The Brothers K and Louis L'Amour.

The Brothers Bloom by Rian Johnson, best romantic movie most people haven't seen.

Right now I'm addicted to podcasts and am in the process of listening to every episode of WTF, Harmontown, The Smartest Man in The World, Girl on Guy, and This Feels Terrible.

For music, I like a mix of traditional jazz vocals, alternative Texas country, and 80s-90s rap, with random crap like Bruce Springsteen, Guns N Roses, and Lady Gaga thrown in. My favorite solo female country singer, Bonnie Bishop, just followed me on Twitter and it makes me giddy. No B-52's and no Rush.

Just found a new soft pecorino that makes me positively euphoric. I spend my days thinking of new things to stuff with prosciutto. I love to cook but don't do it as often as I should since I discovered Trader Joe's lobster ravioli. I gave up veal a couple years ago for moral reasons, and it's one of the hardest things I've ever done.
Six things I could never do without
Beer, playing cards, reason, witty conversation, dissenting opinions, another kind of beer... or Bourbon.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
What crimes a committed and realistic Marxist superhero would fight

The Zombiepocalypse

New recipes, particularly involving venison or ghost peppers

The closing of the American West/the Myth of the American Dream

The fact that "octopuses" is correct.

New punchlines for "What do you get when you cross a black and a pollack?"


On a typical Friday night I am
Playing trivia, drinking the work week away, or cooking the meal I've been planning all week, usually something with pork and bok choy.

Lately, working out and catching up on TV
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I have an irrational fear of both clowns and spiders.

I've paid money to see Barry Manilow.
You should message me if
You enjoy pointless banter. You enjoy pointful banter. You like watching absurd movies and you need someone to bring popcorn. You need a drinking partner or a trivia ringer. You lose track of time during a good conversation. You think you're smarter than me.
The two of us
