My self-summary
Send me a message if you're listening to Carly Rae Jepsen right now.
What I’m doing with my life
Pretending to want to learn to cook. Exploring America, man.
I’m really good at
Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon. Making friends with strange cats.
The first things people usually notice about me
I've got a habit of using dollar words for nickel sentences.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Buffy the Vampire Slayer: This is the show that shaped my conception of what good art is probably more than any other.

Firefly: I love me some Whedon, is what I'm saying.

Mad Men, Breaking Bad, 30 Rock, Arrested Development.

Friday Night Lights is one of the most rewarding experiences I've had with a television show and don't you dare laugh at me for crying at the finale.

Memento is a movie that really matters to me. Cool Hand Luke is unequivocally a movie that matters as well as being a Movie That Matters. Paul Newman might be my favorite American movie star. Movies I could turn on and enjoy at nearly any time include: 10 Things I Hate About You, A Few Good Men, Good Will Hunting.

A few books that matter to me for various reasons: The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier and Clay, The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, Cloud Atlas, Life of Pi, Sex, Drugs and Cocoa Puffs. I have a firm connection to Hamlet that I don't think will ever go away. There isn't a number high enough for the amount of books I keep intending to read and don't get around to.

Bands I currently listen to: The Weakerthans, Neutral Milk Hotel, Wilco, Robyn, The Cure, Passion Pit, Kendrick Lamar, The Front Bottoms, Against Me!
Six things I could never do without
- Burger and beer at Kay' s.
-The recurring hope that when I pick up my guitar this time I will finally be good.
-That feeling you get when you're trying to remember the name of that actor who was in that one thing and you know that you know it but you can't get your mind around it, so you let it settle into a sub-layer of your thinking, and then later out of nowhere you remember it and you're like, "OF COURSE!"
-Copious amounts of sleep.
- I'll get back to you on the rest.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Thinking, the nature of existence, how to make myself a better person in the context of my cis-male/white/heterosexual/able-bodied privilege, where I'm going, what it all means, if I'm thinking too hard.
Also the economy.
On a typical Friday night I am
Wishing I was singing karaoke.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I've watched 13 Going On 30 five more times than the first two Godfather movies combined. This is because I have watched 13 Going On 30 exactly five times.
You should message me if
Maybe you can help me pick a better profile picture. Or maybe you learned a really interesting word today and would like to share it with me! (I would love that, actually: please do that.)
The two of us
