My self-summary
Native New Yorker. Glutton for poetic squalor. Flaneur and day drinker. Lover of low-tech gadgets and entertainments. I'm a night person with an early shift type job so now I am a half-zombie who always perks up around sundown.
What I’m doing with my life
Working in infotainment. Trying to write a novel and some songs.
I’m really good at
Puns
Throwing a frisbee forehand
Developing theories about pop cultural artifacts' deeper significance that may have even less validity than than meets the eye.
The first things people usually notice about me
Winning glare, compact frame, good shirt.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
"Barrel Fever," "A Fan's Notes," Jeffrey Eugenides' "Middlesex" and "The Marriage Plot," "The Corrections," Nabakov's "Laughter in the Dark," "The Namesake," "Raising Arizona," "Sideways," "Withnail and I," "Straight to Hell," "The Wire," Colbert, "Breaking Bad," "Enlightened," Tom Waits, Elliott Smith, The Stones, Aimee Mann, Madeleine Peyroux, Jenny Owen Youngs, Queens of the Stone Age, The Flaming Lips, Bowie, Italian, Indian, sushi, fish and chips, fried things.
The six things I could never do without
Depressing folk pop, old fashioned saloons, inappropriate humor, beer, trains, brick and mortar bookstores damn it
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Guitar chords and lyrics; punctuation; whether I can stay up for another hour; whether I'm destined to win a Darwin Award.
On a typical Friday night I am
Battered & fried.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I miss velour.
You should message me if
You are a liberal with a strong thirst and a sense of humor.
