time, so that's not too bad right? I kinda shift between that and
serious, but the bright side is with a little coaxing I'm usually
up for anything. I guess sometimes it can be a little hard to crack
my shell, but once you're in, I can be pretty good company if I do
say so myself.
And having actually decided to use that as my summary, I guess I
can add "occasionally a giant dork" in here.
Ultimately I'd like to be a professor. I'd like to profess...
I wouldn't mind being a novelist on the side though.
Or maybe dropping everything to open a bar on some beach somewhere with a writing room in the attic.
Unless its up north. Then it would be a bakery with a writing room attic.
I'm told I'm also a pretty good writer and listener.
I've also been told I'm a pretty good personal film critic. I just have a vibe for what people's tastes are for movies. Your own personal Netflix.
I think I've gotten mentions of my eyes in the past.
I've not really asked. It seems kinda narcissistic. (which I would never be.... Publicly anyway lol)
Tv I love modern family, old family guy, the occasional south park. Weeds, shameless, outnumbers.
Music, love 60s and 70s rock. In particular the Animals, Stones, Doors, Velvet Underground, the Beach Boys etc.
I also like movie music and classical, eg Tchaikovsky.
I'm a huge fan of musicals as well, such as Les Mis, Evita etc.
I also like modern indie rock like spoon and the cold war kids. I love the gorillaz.
I'm getting into dub step and I love techno like daft punk.
I guess I'm versatile, kind of like I am with movies.
In movies I've basically loved star wars since I was an infant. There are the obvious ones like lord of the rings, Jurassic park, back to the future, the godfather.
I'm a fan of Pixar as well as old style 60s Disney animation.
I'm kind of a nerd so I'm a sucker for good sci fi, like moon, alien, 2001, etc.
I also love a lot of great pretentiousy movies, in particular lots of things by Francois Truffaut, 400 Blows and The Last Metro especially) or things like Yojimbo.
I have a huge fondness for some quirky movies like Scott Pilgrim and Lucky Number Slevin.
I also love the James bond films. Also musicals. Especially Evita when it comes to film versions of musicals. I'm basically just an all around huge cinephile.
Speaking of James Bond, I really enjoy the written work of Ian Flemming. I also love Cormac McCarthy. I've just begun to grow a fondness for Albert Camus. I'm trying to learn to love Fitzgerald, but I'm having trouble with it, I always have for some reason. Same with Kerouac. I like them, I just don't love them.
I do love William Burroughs though. I try and read pretty diversely. I think my favorite books are probably The Count Of Monte Cristo, Candide, The Grapes Of Wrath, The Road and definitely Angelas Ashes.
I almost forgot to mention Frank McCourt! And his brother Malachy. I love memoirs. As a nerd, i also love to read the Nerd rule book mandatory incredibly nerdy and embarrassing sci-fi franchise book, like a Star Wars book or some such thing.
See, I'm being honest. Just here at the bottom of this super long essay.
I guess I'll add more to this as time goes on.
Being able to create things.
I also just like to think about life in general in that generically deep way. The big debate between the meaning of things and the mysteries of why we are and such other fluff.
