I've moved to Ditmas Park, so my user name should now be Ben11226. I mean, if you're into zip codes
My beard and hair length is always in flux.
Oh, and I'm really good at punning. I'd make an old-timey pun right now, except that I don't want to date myself.
I've lived in NYC for 13 years, and while it's never going to be a totally ideal place to live I love it now as much (or more) than I ever have. I also hate it now as much (or more) than I ever have. But that is the way of things. Love has the edge.
Interacting with kids
Being a nice guy, getting drinks
Music has and always will be one of the most important things in my life. I am always seeking out new things to listen to, while staying in touch with old favorites. I still buy records and, on occasion, CDs, because the thought of a world without record stores is very upsetting.
I go to shows often, and am very loyal to the artists I like.
I'm a Film Forum member. Favorite movie is a tie between The Shining, Aguirre Wrath of God and How High.
I am very excited to see the new Twin Peaks.
As for food, going out to eat is just about my favorite thing to do in this city. My culinary parameters are unfortunately not quite as wide as they used to be (not by choice), but I remain the sort of person who will say yes to everything it is possible to say yes to. And, slowly but surely, I have been learning how to cook for myself -- a main dish and sides and everything. Just like Mom used to make, except worse.
