My self-summary
"One morning, as David was waking up from weird dreams, he discovered that in bed he had been changed into a human being..."

Cinéphile, audiophile, and logophile.

Handyman ordinaire. Bricoleur du Dimanche.

My BS detector is very sensitive. Life is too short for deception and lies.
What I’m doing with my life
Learning how to be a human being. It's a dirty job, and someone has to do it.
Taking photos. See the progress on Flickr: http://www.flickr.com/photos/dchatenay/
Listening to too much (bad) music, watching too many (bad) movies, reading too many (bad) books.
Breathing, stretching and bending.
Fighting entropy.
Understanding the world.
Trying to be useful.
I strive to be a gentleman.
I try to live my life unfiltered.

Zen and the art of making dark chocolate mousse.
I’m really good at
Learning. Looking and listening. Bending. Analyzing. Over-analyzing. Being clumsy. Using Occam's razor. Accumulating vast amounts of useless knowledge. Being redundant. I'm not bad with litotes, and have a slight tendency for understatement. Detecting patterns and understanding the dynamics of complex systems. Making lists.
My Gallic shrugs are pretty good. My French accent is excellent, according to my friends. I make a mean dark chocolate mousse.
The first things people usually notice about me
My frame(s).
Six things I could never do without
Food, shelter, clothes, family, friends, art? Or yoga, movies, books, vinyls, a camera and a bike?
I spend a lot of time thinking about
The irony of life. The lightness of being. Santa Claus the slave master. The geopolitical quagmire of the middle-east. Gregor Samsa. The feeling of the absurd. The mysteries of photographic composition. Why I'm thinking so much. What's for lunch. Moving to Iceland. Why is it so hard to define oneself in a few words. Moving to Japan.
On a typical Friday night I am
Practicing yoga. Having dinner with friends. Watching a movie. Planning for world domination.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I would like to get a fauxhawk.
I have a soft spot for pixie crops and pencil skirts.
You should message me if
You want to raid Amoeba Records with me.
You're an architect, or a photographer, or a cinéphile. Or all three.
You can't live without your Sunday New York Times (or New York Review of Books).
You read books.
Bonus points if you speak Japanese or Icelandic.

You are 16 blocks away from your destination. The next MUNI bus is in 17 minutes and takes 15 minutes. Do you:
A) call an Uber
B) wait for the bus
C) walk
D) get on your bike because that's how you got there
E) ???
The two of us
