The time for procrastination is over, though. I’ve decided to reapply myself to meeting random people on the internet after a bit of a hiatus. I like this site in particular because of it's pseudo-scientific approach, with all the charts and graphs and bell-curves and whatnot. I'm a fan of the science of statistics myself, but since I'm fairly certain there's nothing rational or predictable about dating, I have my doubts about how well the approach will work. I also appreciate that this site identifies enemies. (Someone has been thwarting my schemes recently, and he or she must be stopped).
In conclusion, you should totally think about dating me.
(Ok, that’s one question answered. Not so bad. I need a break now. More revisions to come. Watch this space!)
Other than that I've mostly been shouting about politics (preferably while drinking), playing too many video games, singing loudly at inappropriate times, and hanging out in formerly smoky jazz clubs.
Currently my focus is exploring my neighborhood.
That said, I do read a lot of comic books. Might as well just admit that up front. And not just the respectable literary ones that get reviewed in the NY times and show up on the occasional 'best books' list to demonstrate how open-minded the writer is (although I read those too). Mostly, I mean the elaborate soap operas for men with dudes in spandex beating each other up.
(B)Anything by the Coen Brothers, especially The Big Lebowski and Miller's Crossing. Lots of other movies too, but I think those are the most telling.
(C)My primary music interest is jazz, and that's what I'm most likely to actually go out and see. Favorites include Mingus, Dolphy and Coltrane. But I listen to a lot of other things. Recently I haven't been able to stop with the Danger Mouse/MF Doom album, and I've also been listening to a lot of Curtis Mayfield. A quick search of itunes reveals I have more tracks by Elvis Costello and They Might Be Giants than any other artist.
And now a genre-hopping list of incongrous-seeming bands that I enjoy, to demonstrate that I am a complex and fascinating person: Ed's Redeeming Qualities, The Clash, Cab Calloway, Ghostface particularly, Wu-Tang generally, Cake, Laura Cantrell, Journey (just kidding...I think...), Talib Kweli, Talking Heads, In-Flight Movie, anything involving Ella Fitzgerald, Flogging Molly, Alison Krauss, Mephiskapheles, The Impressions, Gogol Bordello... I'll finish this later.
Dr. Zoidberg is my spirit animal.
