My self-summary
Part-time extroverted recluse who's made a living writing/creating for the last 25 years or so. That combination seems to work for what I do.
Read on...
What I’m doing with my life
Film. I wrote & directed a feature film recently. Very proud of it. Some people fucking hate it. Others; the opposite.
I’m really good at
Film again. And reading. I can read the crap out of a book or article.
Good at Bocce Ball.
Emotions. I've mastered emotions.
Let's keep the reading line moving...
The first things people usually notice about me
My opinions.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Close Encounters, Night of the Hunter, It's a Wonderful Life, Goodfellas, Alien, Watership Down, Jaws, DePalma, The Misfits, Kubrick, All That Jazz, Let The Right One In, Cronenberg, etc.
And my movie. If you feel like watching a fun, brain-twisting thriller it's called--

Books: Richard Matheson, Hunter Thompson, Warren Ellis, Paul Krugman, Arthur Miller, King, Joe Hill, Jennifer Egan, etc.
Constantly reading a rotation of memoirs, fiction, actual magazines, actual books, Right/Left Wing blogs, Salon, etc.
All in an effort to stay right on top of it ALL.
Impossible. But I love it.
Just read Thinking Fast and Slow (great) and Mastermind: How To Think Like Sherlock Holmes (Recommended to anyone who works in fiction or is interested in the thinking thing).
--Just finished The Circle by Eggers. Damn superb.--

Music: Lennon & co., Frightened Rabbit, Buzzcocks, Adam & the Ants, Sinead O'Connor, Philip Glass, Clash, Jam, New Order, so much more it's not funny to you, me or anyone.

For TV, Galactica was beautiful. Breaking Bads (Better Call Saul). The Odd Couple (original). True Detectives (sold on season 2 already -- Edit: no, not great enough), Black Mirror, BBC SHERLOCK!
The six things I could never do without
1: OkCupid
2: People who agree with me about that.
3: People who realize that meeting humans on-line is much better than meeting them in reality.
4: The Internet (OkCupid)
5: My computer (OkCupid)
6: ?
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How to make the world a bitter place.
Also, I just discovered my great-grandfather used to work for Lucky Luciano's NYC mob. He was a "Booker." That's someone who finds new women for prostitution. Crazy.
On a typical Friday night I am
Trying to be the best Booker I can be.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I could never be a Booker.
You should message me if
You like to enjoy thyself and others.
