My self-summary
Feist calls some people her amplifiers. This is exactly right.

I want to learn how people work. I want to learn how to dance. I want to laugh my fucking face off.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm in a full-on self improvement crusade and getting to know my thriving side intimately.

I work full-time.

I'm playing acoustic engineer slowly piecing together the perfect listening room. I want to build a vocal isolation booth so I can play as loud as I want at 4am, when the best ideas come. I play guitar for stress relief. I have a secret fantasy where I make home-brewed album after album. The tapes get discovered next to a grease dumpster and are cherished after I die like Emily Dickinson.
I’m really good at
loving on music
photoshop (Not a good thing to say on a dating site but…)
picking good movies
Background processing
The first things people usually notice about me
Probably eyes and smile. Maybe they are laughing at some shit I said. My butt is not bad after a few months of bike commuting.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: I love books that show me what I'm like. I love it when books show me how arbitrary values can be and light up their dirt-caked roots. I like it when folks recognize values that aren't working and suggest alternatives.

Movies: I went to film school and learned to love original voices. I wish I could think of popular fun movies here, but films are best when they are 40-70 years old, european (mostly), and cynical. It's an objective fact. I'll cut you.

Oh, and the Cohen Brothers.

TV: I don't trust shows that are made for tons of money. There are many branches, only one trunk.

I still love cartoons.

Jeff Buckley, Animal Collective, Jose Gonzalez, Bon Iver, Perfume Genius, Beach House, Neutral Milk Hotel, Prince, The Beach Boys, Leonard Cohen, Belle and Sebastian, Of Montreal, Mountain Goats, The Beatles, Tom Waits, Chris Whitley, Talking Heads, The Royal Trux, Kings of Convenience, Paul Simon, Nine Inch Nails

Homemade things, Cookies, Middle Eastern/Mediterranean, Mexican, Thai, Indian, Ethiopian, really any culture with beans
The six things I could never do without
Thinking Time
A Fantastic Stereo
My Guitar
I spend a lot of time thinking about
What others feel. I love listening to folks and their stories and then wondering about what goes on inside of them.

The right partner. I'm looking for a girl that asks, "Now let me see if I understand you" rather than "You're wrong because" during fights.
On a typical Friday night I am
Arson. So much arson. I am Mrs. O'Leary's cow.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I talk to myself.
You should message me if
You believe yourself sexy.

You are in or have been through therapy.
