My self-summary
Full-time knowledge-fiend, part-time musician, quarter-time mendicant, and variable-time eremitic, I seek the low-key, the intense, and the ridiculous on equal terms, a typical aquarius I suppose.
I enjoy ephemera of all kinds, but I seem to have a knack for interests that are now ridiculously commonplace; po-mo analysis, "good" bad movies, musical colonialism, etc. To be honest, I'm kind of tired of it, or to quote the guy who quoted the other guy: "I'm so far ahead of you I'm in back of you." Portland makes me feel both old and pointless, and young and vibrant. Welcome to the dialectic, motherfucker (as the Philosopher once said).
What I’m doing with my life
Getting up way too early.
Keepin' my Tiger claws retracted in the year of the Monkey (while dodging all the life-challenging coconuts the said Monkey has been throwing at me all year).

Debating bad-habit-killing strategies.
Reading bout dead people who lived long ago and far away.
Formulating musical ideas, and trying to implement them within my means.
...And of course, making basil pesto...
I’m really good at
Making tasty food quickly, knowing who did what in musical groups, explaining certain complexities in a simple manner, singing harmony (even when it's out of my range), knowing a little about a lot (AKA being the guy you want on your trivia team) and a lot about a little, odd-meters, being enthusiastic to the point of exhaustion, over-analysis, intentional malaprops, figuring out melodies on stringed instruments (harmony as well), being parenthetical (duh) and sleeping in.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Will have to get back to this...
The six things I could never do without
Critical thinking
On a typical Friday night I am
Sleeping earlier than most people
