My self-summary
Whoa there! You clicked on my face. Nice! We got past the "judge me by my photo" phase. Don't worry, there are some more photos you can look at if you want to judge me some more. By the way, if within the first two sentences your profile says "I like travel and food" I am going to assume you have no imagination whatsoever. If you're really really attractive I may respond anyway, but it probably won't go anywhere. Don't be mad, I like those things too, everyone does. That's the thing. Have you ever met anyone sane who hated food and travel? At any rate, I'm glad we got this far. You seem interesting.
What I’m doing with my life
I used to have a cat. This is what I would often ask him. "What are you doing with your life?" Usually he would stare at me blankly. Sometimes he would try to bite me. I am certain that his answers to this question are superior to mine.

I also may be somewhat sarcastic at times. But it's all in love.

For most of my adult life i was a musician. Nowadays I have a couple small businesses. I recently became a partner in a small restaurant in Brooklyn. It's a lot of work!!

Update: i recently became a partner in a bar!
I’m really good at
Determining what your body type is from your photos. Really. Even if your only picture is a blurry close-up. Do you want to call me shallow? Well then I call BS. When was the last time you went on a date with a guy you weren't attracted to? How did that go? At any rate, if I'm not attracted to you I still value your humanity. We should get drunk and make fun of people sometime. Anyway I'm almost completely joking.

I am also good at music , reading, taking risks, drinking, talking about philosophy art and music, polite conversation, making salsa and marinara, and falling off skateboards.
The first things people usually notice about me
People often tell me I look familiar. This leads me to believe I have a long lost twin brother who runs around in a social circle one degree removed from mine.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
How could I possibly list them all?

Books: Everything by Albert Camus, Cormac McCarthy, William Faulkner, Steinbeck, Most everything by Hemingway and Kafka, Kurt Vonnegut, Sartre and James Baldwin. I've been through obsessive periods with Murikami, Plato, Kant, as well as various pop fiction authors. I will read pretty much anything as long as it's not recycled ideas warmed over with cliches.

Movies: I watch a lot of docs, but for pure movie-making I love the Coen Brothers, Wes Anderson, David Lynch, Tarantino, Kurasowa, Kubrick, Westerns, bad horror flicks and anything with something to say.

Music: Devotchka, Miles Davis, Ennio Marriconne, Beirut, Tom Waits, Wilco, Nick Drake, Danny Elfman, my god I could go on forever. Jazz, soundtracks, rock, indie, folk, Americana, gypsy music, modern classical. Anything interesting

Food: I'm a pescatarian foodie. And I hate the word pescatarian. It sounds so fucking condescending. Come to think of it I hate the word "foodie" too.
The six things I could never do without
1) Caffeine
2) Music
3) Occasionally sleeping late
4) New things to stare at
5) A good book
6) Dreams
I spend a lot of time thinking about
The future, music, literature, and the meaning of life...which is to say that I waste most of my thinking time.
On a typical Friday night I am
Playing a gig, watching a concert, checking out a movie, having a whiskey at the neighborhood bar, home on Netflix, practicing and writing music, or fucking around on the internet. I don't have a television and I rather enjoy it that way. Commercials make my head hurt.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Who are you again?
You should message me if
You realize most of this profile description is tongue-in-cheek sarcasm. If you're not committing egregious photo fraud on your profile (I don't understand this. Has that ever worked for you? It's like those construction workers who proposition pedestrians. I don't understand them either). If you don't skim OkCupid profiles looking for guys with sweet sweet ab pics (Let me save you some time. They are boring douchebags, and probably not very good in bed anyway- being narcissists). If you have something more interesting to talk about than how passionate you are about your Human Resources job at Stanley Morgan (I am not %100 convinced the humans there can be classified as "resources", but hey you could change my mind). If you think the idea of having an arch-nemesis is an interesting one. If you have ever done anything fun just for the sake of doing something fun. If you are rad.

Also: if you don't have "Work hard, play hard" somewhere in your profile. What the hell does that even mean?
