Also I help/pretend to help people design the inside of their homes in my day job because people trust you if you're wearing a vest with a company name on it. I'm actually good at my job but "I'm very competent" isn't much of a punchline.
I make people laugh a lot. And I'm a pretty solid storyteller as well.
Favorite TV shows include The Daily Show, Doctor Who, Buffy, Firefly, 30 Rock, Parks & Rec, The Twilight Zone, Sons of Anarchy, Community, Futurama, and Arrested Development.
Some of my favorite bands/musicians are Bruce Springsteen and E-Street Band, Bad Religion, The Clash, Rollins Band, Tom Waits, Billy Bragg, Jonathan Coulton, Weird Al, MC Lars, Spose, The Mountain Goats and Sleater-Kinney.
10 of my favorite films - Dr. Strangelove, Inherit the Wind, American Splendor, Monty Pyton's Life of Brian, The Marvel Cinematic Universe stuff, The Cooler, Wristcutters : A Love Story, Young Frankenstein, Lawrence of Arabia, The King of Comedy (which is NOT the Kings of Comedy, but an excellent Scorsese/ De Niro film)
Sports wise I'm a baseball fan, played when I was a kid and I just love the game. I grew up a Phillies fan but have become a Bucco backer over the years in Pittsburgh. When the two teams play I wear a hat for one team, a shirt for the other and cheer every play. I've also gotten much more into hockey, namely the Pens, since moving to Pittsburgh. I'm not the crazy sports type but despite being more of the geeky type I can do sports.
In terms of food/drink I love a good Chicken Parm, be it on a plate or sandwich form. The existence of the potato gives me some hope that there may be, in fact, some higher power that likes us. Whiskey and rum are my usual drinks of choice for alcohol when I drink.
Does Existentialism count as a thing? I'm going to count it as two for now.
Possible stories to write.
Ideas for stand up.
How complicated and unpredictable the machinery of life really is.
-You're looking for someone to chat with about life, philosophy and just what it is we're all doing here
-You've Learned to Stop Worrying and Love The Bomb
-Also, in a non egotistical way, I do have the occasional moments of awesomeness. So I've got that going for me.
