Acting like a child while I'm growing old."
I am a visual artist, musician, DJ, stand-up comedian, and occasional math tutor. I prefer to laugh as much as possible.
I have a tattoo of the cover of Shel Silverstein's "The Giving Tree" that is old enough to legally drive a car in most states.
I have a bizarre sense of humor that makes it difficult for many people to discern when I'm joking. This is exacerbated by my announcer-like voice, and the fact that most of my true anecdotes sound like fiction. For example: a conversion van that I once owned was featured in a few episodes of the HBO television show "The Wire".
Movies: almost anything by Wes Anderson
TV Shows: Parks and Recreation, Project Runway, Archer, Modern Family, Drunk History, The Eric Andre Show, Scandal, Arrested Development.
Music: This is always such a tough question. Here are a few off the top of my head: Alice Coltrane, Com Truise, Of Montreal, Death Grips, Danny Brown, Earl Sweatshirt, Daft Punk, The Hood Internet, Neon Indian, Girl Talk, Frank Ocean, The White Mandingos, Pizzicato Five, Charles Earland, Alan Hawkshaw, etc...
Food: Mexican, Thai, Ethiopian, Jamaican, American Comfort Food, Vietnamese, decadent sandwiches... I live dangerously close to the restaurant "Cookies and Carnitas".
...you are also new to Chicago and want to check out some galleries and/or music venues together.
...you are a long-time citizen of Chicago that would like to show me some cools spots, and bask in my bewildered merriment.
...you're looking for a safe, fun, friend with possible benefits
...(most importantly) you can say more than "hey nice pics". Captivate me and be honest about yourself.
