My self-summary
Hey, I'm Lex - musician, artist, socialist, and general political enthusiast.

At any given moment you'll probably find me in fishnets and platform boots, getting really excited about foreign policy or Hannah Arendt.

I also play guitar, bass, and piano. I've got a band, in which I play guitar and write lyrics.

I make way too much eye contact. I think it makes people uncomfortable, but I never notice. Maybe it's my way of weeding out the weak?
What I’m doing with my life
Currently majoring in International Relations. I go to NYU.

I am also a model, photographer, and musician.
I’m really good at
Dyeing my hair... this took a lot of practice though. I have accidentally dyed my skin blue before an important interview.

I know a lot about constitutional law. Like way too much about constitutional law.
The first things people usually notice about me
My hair?
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Fight Club, Saw, The Shining, Sicko, Memento, 500 Days of Summer, 8 Mile, Scott Pilgrim vs the World, A Beautiful Mind, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind
I also watch a TON of documentaries.

Anything and everything by Chuck Palahniuk. Fight Club, Survivor, Invisible Monsters, Choke, Lullaby, all of them.
Also: Freakonomics, Battle Royale, Ender's Game, Just and Unjust Wars, Poverty & Power, and The Post-American World. I read a ton of magazines/periodicals too, including Foreign Affairs, The Atlantic, Newsweek, The Economist, Der Spiegel, Al Jazeera, Wall Street Journal, Russia Today, etc.
I also have a deep fondness for reading philosophy - my angsty teen self had a big existentialist phase so I'm very familiar with Camus, Sartre, etc, though I've also read all the classics (Kant, Mill, etc) and the more modern (Zizek, Arendt, etc).

Shows: I don't really watch TV, but I like the Daily Show and Orange is the New Black. I also am obsessed with Fareed Zakaria so I watch GPS when I get the chance.

Including but definitely not limited to:
Empires, Misfits, Say Anything, Fall Out Boy, Van Halen, Daughter, The Young Veins, Black Flag, Tallhart, Bright Eyes, The Clash, The Killers, JJAMZ, Violent Soho, Circa Survive, Mindless Self Indulgence, The Like, The Horrors, Led Zeppelin, The Kinks, Regina Spektor.
(Since I've gotten a ridiculous amount of messages about it... do not make fun of me for my music taste!! It is not charming and you will not get a response!)

I really like bread.
I have always had a deep fondness for seafood but I am an ethical vegan and only deviate from it incredibly rarely (maybe once a year while on vacation).
If you can cook really good vegan food, I'll probably fall in love with you.
Six things I could never do without
1. white cheddar popcorn
2. liquid eyeliner
3. 0.3 fine tip pens
4. pink lemonade vodka
5. 1000+ pages of Freud's collected works to refer to at any time
6. online forums that exist for the sole purpose of bashing Rupert Murdoch
I spend a lot of time thinking about
guitar riffs, attractive people, what color to dye my hair next, concerts, books, the Real, politics, clever things to write on my okcupid profile
On a typical Friday night I am
Well it depends... activities include dancing, drinking, guitar, studying law, reading, researching, writing music, sketching... I don't know. It's always different.

I used to go to a LOT of concerts back when I lived in LA, but not as much now, though I'd love to start doing it again.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I've been to jail overnight twice: once for involvement in a protest, and once for using a fake ID to buy vodka.
I obviously live life on the edge...
You should message me if
you've read my profile and can say something more than "hey... your hot (;"
new requirement: don't make a joke about saying "hey... your hot" either.
The two of us
