My self-summary
Just a regular schlub trying to maintain some shred of dignity as I navigate the humiliations and frustrations of daily life.
What I’m doing with my life
Crawling through the wreckage.
I’m really good at
Still figuring that out.
The first things people usually notice about me
I'm not wearing pants.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I like many kinds of different movies from low brow schlock, high brow foreign films, popular, obscure... I've liked some (not all) films by Wes Anderson (Rushmore, Royal Tenenbaums, Moonrise Kingdom), P.T. Anderson (There Will be Blood, Punch Drunk Love), Jim Jarmush (Down by Law, Mystery Train, Dead Man), Michel Gondry, Spike Jones, Wim Wenders (Wings of Desire, Until the End of the World), Coen brothers, Werner Herzog (Fitzcaraldo).... lots, lots. That doesn't mean I can't get a few laughs out of the crudeness of something like Superbad.

Not a huge reader, but I subscribe to the New Yorker and plow through that most weeks... a good mix of fiction and reporting and other distractions. Also pick up a copy of Granta now and then.

Music tastes similar to my movie tastes... a bit of everything. The typical stuff includes Tom Waits, pavement, Fela, Ali Farka Toure, White Stripes, the xx, Miles Davis, Leon Bridges. Usually listen to NPR's All Songs Considered.

Food. Yes. Yum.
The six things I could never do without
water
coffee
beer
anxiety
nervous rituals
obsessive thoughts
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Everything and/or nothing.
On a typical Friday night I am
Curled up in a ball weeping for no reason in particular.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I don't floss as much as I should.
You should message me if
Your soul mate married someone else while you were reading The Secret.
