Southerner born and raised in a two-stoplight town 40 miles east of Memphis, went to school in Chicago, now living here. I miss real storms, cicadas, and the smell of honeysuckle heavy on the air.
In terms of women, I like those whose intelligence, competence, and confidence are borderline intimidating.
I subscribe to Alan Watts' philosophy that the path to fulfillment requires blurring of the line between your work and play. I'm not career-obsessed, I just love what I do.
Everything else gets a sampling of five favorites because I no more want to list them all than you want to read them.
Books: House of Leaves; The Weeds of God; The Electric Kool-Aid Acid Test; I Am A Strange Loop; The Book: On the Taboo Against Knowing Who You Are. Right now I'm working on Danielewski's new book "The Familiar: One Rainy Day in May".
Movies: Requiem for a Dream; Black Swan; Snatch; Tucker and Dale vs. Evil; Sunshine. Recent favorite: IT FOLLOWS HOLY SHIT
Shows: The Wire; True Detective; Parks and Recreation; Hannibal; Louie
Music: According to my Last.fm, my top 5 artists are Mew, Nine Inch Nails, Porcupine Tree, Efterklang, and Radiohead, but I've been listening to a lot of Yeezy lately.
You have a dream you're actively pursuing.
You appreciate the stillness brought by exhaustion and the smell of the earth.
If you made it this far, you should probably just hit me up. Seriously, I'm not smelly and I will make you laugh (if not with then at least at me).
