My self-summary
I value creativity, patience, empathy, kindness, moderation, humor, experience, curiosity, emotional openness, honesty and balance.
What I’m doing with my life
I work about fourteen hours a week and spend the rest of the time doing what I want.
I’m really good at
Writing, theatre, accents, painting, music, traveling independently, scuba diving, Scrabble, making silly jokes.
The first things people usually notice about me
My unseasonable, out of bounds attire. I've imagined a fop crossed with a South American freedom fighter on the scaffolding of a stoned bodybuilder.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Right now I'm very excited about Knausgaard's My Struggle. In general, I like very difficult books. Ulysses/Bloomsday Guide. The Origin of Consciousness in the Breakdown of the Bicameral Mind, In Search of Lost Time - Proust, Crowds and Power - Canetti + Huysmans, Genet, Hesse, Kafka, Bataille, Houellebecq, Beckett, Faulkner, Hardy, Duras, Cioran, Baudrillard, Zizek, Blanchot, Twain, Hemingway.

Movies-
In the White City - Alain Tanner + all the greats---Tarkovsky, Ozu, Brakhage, Godard, Bresson, Rivette, Reygadas, Denis, Haneke, Jodorowsky, Bunuel, Cocteau, Renoir, Rohmer, and then westerns, inane action movies, heist films.

Music-

Anything with an untouchable, immersive quality to it---drone, shoegaze, metal, ambient, electroacoustic, gamelan, field recordings. I play a lot of instruments and am constantly learning and thinking about sound. I like both consonance and dissonance, rhythm and non-rhythm.

Baroque, Leonard Cohen, oud music, select 90's rave/dance, Vietnamese folk music, idiot savants, sound art

Food:

Cilantro, basil, garlic, chile, ginger, lime. No animals, please. I like to cook. I like to replicate dishes I've tried. Yes, I'll wash the dishes.
The six things I could never do without
Fam
Sense of Humor
Faraway, Not Here
Sound, Color, Shape, Texture, Smell
Fruit
What I Can Remember
I spend a lot of time thinking about
What is authentic and what is conditioning. My own and others sense of control and motive. The problem of being. How to listen.
On a typical Friday night I am
My free time is much more expansive and different.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm more vulnerable to women than I would prefer.
You should message me if
You know yourself. You're relaxed. You're not concerned with what other people think. You're healthy. You're positively self-controlled.
