But that is what others think. I tell my friends eccentricity is the mark of genius! But I am not that arrogant. A more appropriate image would be Larry David impersonating Bernie Sanders on SNL. A cynical idealist.
Do I contradict myself? Very well then...
(I am large, I contain multitudes)
I just finished my dissertation so I am now contemplating my next phase in life. In the interim, I'm catching up on everything I missed during last year's hibernation (e.g. movies, museums, etc).
My appearance tends to belie my anarchic personality.
I am currently reading DH Lawrence's The Rainbow.
Films: Annie Hall, Dr. Strangelove, and The Graduate. (my holy trinity: ego, super-ego, and id ). "Criterion collection and chill"?
The last great movie I watched was The Apartment.
Music: I've been listening to Elvis Costello, Leonard Cohen, Sam Cooke. Classical music when I write in the morning, jazz when I write in the evening. The three best concerts I've attended were 1) Joni Mitchell and Donovan; 2) Blondie and Pat Benatar; and 3) the Anger Management tour featuring Eminem, G-Unit, and Lil Jon.

you are imaginative, intellectual, compassionate, witty, and provocative (there is my okcupid idealism).
