But that is what others think. I tell them eccentricity is the mark of genius! 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 spend my time blowing off steam at the gym and searching for inspiration by roaming around the city without any particular direction: looking at art, listening to music, watching people, taking in the sights and smells.
My appearance tends to belie my anarchic personality.
I am currently reading Reading Lolita in Tehran.
Films: Annie Hall, Dr. Strangelove, and The Graduate. (my holy trinity: ego, super-ego, and id ). Others that immediately spring to mind are Harold and Maude, My Cousin Vinny, La Dolce Vita, Godfather, and Blazing Saddles. "Criterion collection and chill"?
The last great movie I watched was The Apartment.
Shows: Grew up on Nick at Nite (esp. Mary Tyler Moore), Seinfeld, and then Curb. So always stuck with reruns.
Shows should also apply to the theater... Philly has some great playhouses, check them out.
Music: I've been listening to Elvis Costello, Leonard Cohen, Sam Cooke, Wu Tang Clan. 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.

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