My self-summary
I'm a somewhat underachieving, perhaps too-smart-for-my-own-good, good humored bachelor, living the starving artist's dream one unpublished novel at a time. I'm as cute as one of those fainting goats from the Internet (remember those, like from a couple years back?), and humbler than I may initially seem. I'm honest to a fault, but this is undercut somewhat by my frequent employment of sarcasm.
What I’m doing with my life
Making art, consuming art, trying to turn my creative energies into some way of supporting myself in the long term.
The first things people usually notice about me
My beard? My stylish footwear? Or is it my resemblance to whatever hirsute heavy-set comedian is currently capturing the public's collective imagination?
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I don't read as much as you might imagine someone considering themselves a writer would, I'm ashamed to admit. I love Vonnegut, but who doesn't, and I finished reading all his books like forever ago. I just started reading Thomas Pynchon recently, and am finding the experience agreeable.

As for movies, I watch a ton of them. I subscribe to Netflix, Amazon Prime, Hulu, and have every cable movie channel. I just want all the movies... is that too much to ask? My favorites are undoubtedly the films of Wes Anderson, I guess I'm just kind of corny in that way. I love Michel Gondry, the Cohen Bros. (unabashed Lebowski fan here), Charlie Kaufman, Stanley Kubrik, and Jean-Pierre Jeunet. I don't like anime, but I *love* good anime, if you get what I'm saying. I liked Scott Pilgrim vs. The World a little more than I feel comfortable admitting, and I consider Blade Runner required viewing.

TV shows... Favorite of all time would have to be the Adventures of Pete and Pete, though Adventure Time has been making a go at unseating it lately. As for non-children's fare, I like a lot of the usual critically acclaimed zeitgeisty fare on the tube, your Homelands and Breaking Bads and the like. Have you watched Eastbound & Down? You should.

Music! I tend to find bands I like and then affix myself to them in an obsessive manner. Lately that means I've been listening to a lot of Pulp, and I've been rediscovering Radiohead all over again. When asked for my favorite band of all time, when I'm feeling practical I'd say Yo La Tengo, pretentious, I'd say the Fiery Furnaces, or just plain old honest, the Flaming Lips. Favorite British Invasion band would be the Kinks.
The six things I could never do without
My iPhone: I'm a recent convert to smart phones, but already feel deeply devoted to having my music, friends, photos and internet all in one handy-dandy hand-held device. I'm kind of addicted to Instagram.

My kitten: I'd be remiss in not mentioning my faithful cat-panion O.G. Nug Funnie. He's an awesome little dude, even if he sometimes claws the crap out of me.

My friends: Left to my own devices, I'm a little too prone to simply veg out at home. My friends make sure I don't become a full fledged hermit.

My laptop: Smart phones are great and all, but I love to write, and to write, you need a keyboard.

Oxygen, food, water, shelter, etc.: Dying of exposure is for chumps.

Facebook: Long time addict. I tweet occasionally, but I'm not particularly twit-savy. 140 characters can't contain my madness.
