My self-summary
OK, so a dot (.) was not deemed descriptive enough by the omniprescient genie making the decisions here. I'll just say graphviz instead then.

Спасибо хоть на C++ не заставляют свою скромную биографию расписывать. А так - см. по-английски.

I am an introvert, a night-owl, and an alien
What I’m doing with my life
I work in a startup; after spending a few dismally boring years at Cisco I'm almost surprised to be enjoying my job again. Seeing things done the way you believe they need to be done is quite magical.
The first things people usually notice about me
Never bothered to ask.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
João César Monteiro, Kaurismaki, Muratova, early Forman, Menzel, Hong Sang-soo, Tsai Ming-Liang, Juraj Jakubisko, Lee Chang-Ho, Ettore Scola, Marco Ferreri, Otar Iosseliani, Seijun Suzuki, Satyajit Ray, Fassbinder, Warmerdam, Jos Stelling, Bela Tarr, Pasolini, Eugene Green, Slobodan Sijan, Guy Maddin, etc. I like all the usual highfalutin artsy fartsy stuff too but just listing Fellini+Co seems kinda boring...

In theater: Shepard, Stoppard, Beckett, Tennessee Williams, Strindberg; or some no-name local production.

This section used to say that I got a reader's block - it seems to be mostly over now. I guess I need to thank my ereader for that - the near-instant availability of formerly printed physical matter was quite a watershed moment. Anyway: Mishima, Borges, Mommsen, E.T.A. Hoffman, Akutagawa, Robber-Grillet, Brodsky, Baudrillard, Beckett, Muriel Sparks, Updike's short stories, Bolano, Frisch, Barbara Pym, Machado de Assis, "Слушай Вайль, а где твой Генис?".
Six things I could never do without
Turkish coffee in the morning; a nice reclining armchair next to a reading lamp.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Myself; others; why people read what they read; does that matter? why cinema is still entertainment for so many.
On a typical Friday night I am
Chances are I'm trying my luck off-broadway; oh, wait - that was Thursday.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I don't remember the last time I went to bed before midnight or woke up before 9am.

I'm a serial abuser of smileys and ellipsis is my favorite punctuation mark by far.
You should message me if
An "or" of the following:
favorite books/movies is the first profile section you read; you know where my nick comes from (or bothered to look it up); a couple of names in my favorites section ring the bell; you hate 50 shades of blah and coehlo without ever having read either; you like hiking/climbing/outdoors; you feel like chatting.
The two of us
