My self-summary
Aspiring lotus-eater searching for a sympathetic imagination to keep his synapses from going to sleep.
What I’m doing with my life
Collecting stories.

My nine to five is more of a two in the afternoon till eleven. On the plus side it's only four days a week.

If you're partial to poetry, I house some of my more recent writings online: https://halfsohappy.wordpress.com/
I’m really good at
The first things people usually notice about me
I'm a very conspicuous wallflower.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Murakami writes my favorite short fiction. "On seeing the 100% perfect girl one beautiful april morning" is particularly fitting for this medium and "Honey Pie" makes me misty eyed every time I read it.

Glen Duncan produces a sort of thoughtful pulp fiction that I can't seem to get enough of. The fact that two of his books have amazing soundtracks (I, Lucifer and The Last Werewolf) by one of my favorite musicians doesn't hurt his standing with me either. I'd be remiss to not mention Milan Kundera as well. Immortality was a book that changed the way I look at the world.

Jean Paul Jeunet's films epitomize for me what that tired old phrase 'movie magic' truly means. Some of my other favorites include Cashback, The Exploding Girl, Stranger than Fiction, Her, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, Howl's Moving Castle, Shoot 'Em Up, Scott Pilgrim vs. The World, and the LotR trilogy.

The Venture Brothers is easily my favorite thing still on TV. I was a cartoon junkie growing up and a couple years back I got into anime. Some favorites in that medium include Acchi Kocchi, Black Lagoon, The Tatami Galaxy, Hyouka, Toradora, and Cross Game. My Anime List

The six things I could never do without
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Language. Plenty of people are content to adopt inexactitudes in order to take social short-cuts. I obstinately go the long way around.
On a typical Friday night I am
I have a group of guys that I've played online games with since middle school. Unless something more interesting presents itself I'm likely kicking it with them. League of Legends is our primary game of choice.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
There's a correlation between my fondness for someone and the amount of time that person spends on their phone while in my presence.
