My self-summary
I would like to disclaim any affiliation with David Brooks' definition of Bobo.

I share my outlook on life with a former brand of shampoo: Yes to tomatoes!
What I’m doing with my life
Teaching my cats that it's ok to be hugged. [Edit: cats have left along with former roommate.]

Baking a mean olive oil zucchini cake.

Teaching kindergarteners how to play chess.
I’m really good at
watching films, reading books, listening to music. 9 hour documentary about miming underwater? Seen it! An epic poem written only with the letters b and u? Read 3 times! Experimental sound piece made by tying microphones to snow? I fall asleep to it!
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Favorites are hard. I usually end up reading 5 or 6 books at once. Right now I am reading the Charles D'Ambrosio essay collection, Loitering.

I have been listening to, among others, the new Camera Obscura and Jon Hopkins, old Arthur Russell, and the fantastic Disintegration Loops box set a friend gave me. Also gone back to the Nick Cave and Warren Ellis soundtrack for The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford.

I come from a long line of Russian movie snobs, so obviously Tarkovsky and Paradjanov are two of my favorites.
On a typical Friday night I am
Purim party!
You should message me if
you have a dog I can play with. Or if you need a trivia teammate. Or if you are looking at something written in Russian and it's imperative that you know what it says.
