Taken together, these contradictory portraits should suffice.
Do I contradict myself? Very well then...
(I am large, I contain multitudes)
I am currently on a fellowship, finishing my dissertation, so lots of "free time," but really no free time at all if you gather my drift. Blowing off steam at the gym and searching for inspiration at Philly's art museums offer a pleasant distraction.
In terms of meeting people I'd rather laugh with the sinners than cry with the saints.
Poets: Baudelaire, Dickinson, Whitman, Yeats, Frost, Stevens, and Bishop.
Films: Annie Hall, Dr. Strangelove, and The Graduate. (my holy trinity: ego, super-ego, and id ). Others that immediately spring to mind are Swingers, Harold and Maude, My Cousin Vinny, and Ghostbusters. I'm a huge movie buff. Not to brag - but I shall brag nonetheless - I've seen all AFI Top 100 movies. "Criterion collection and chill"?
Shows: Curb and Seinfeld so I'm stuck with reruns. Occasionally Bill Maher.
Music: anything. I've been listening to The Doors, Talking Heads, and Stevie Nicks a lot recently. Most any genre will do, depends on the mood, Sam Cooke never gets old, really any Motown, neither do 80s new wave pop hits or the sweet sounds of Simon & Garfunkel. 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.
I enjoy eating everything but long for Indonesian food from Holland.
Coffee (and coffee flavored things; esp milkshakes)
But right now the election. The fact that Trump is even on this "stage" is something unfathomable.
you are imaginative, intellectual, compassionate, witty, and provocative (there is my okcupid idealism).
