My self-summary
Confident self-deprecator. More endearing traits (usually) make up for the woes of chronic foot-in-mouth syndrome.
What I’m doing with my life
Making sleazy political ads... (for the good guys).
I’m really good at
-Siloing groups of friends.
-Being sneaky cultured... "Is that a DeYoung membership in your wallet?"..... "Why yes, I suppose it is"..... "Well that IS a surprise. Well done, sir."
(Had that conversation with myself the other day.)
The first things people usually notice about me
My Dougie's gotta be high on the list... maybe that i handle chopsticks like I lack opposable thumbs.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Reading.... Kundera, Henry James, Gogol-Dostoevsky-Tolstoy, Nabakov, Confederacy of Dunces, Straight Man...

Watching... the Squid and the Whale, Some Like it Hot, Coming to America, Greenberg, My Cousin Vinnie, the Beginners, Summer Heights...

Listening... to the collected works of Andre 3000 and Antwan Patton. (And all the standard festival shit too, don't worry.)

Eating... is important to me. Omnivorous so long as being omnivorous doesn't necessitate cottage cheese or hard-boiled egg yolks. (Get that sulfur chalk outta here... or better yet, just leave it runny.)
Six things I could never do without
-Semi-friendly competition veering into semi-unfriendly competition.
-Chile relleno burritos
-Taking terrible shots in pickup basketball games and then acting completely shocked when they don't go in.
-Sam Cooke radio.
-The Land of Enchantment.
-Old fiction.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
-Whether I'm spending too much time with my fun friends at the expense of my smart friends.... or vice-versa?
-How old is too old to have a Biggie poster on the apartment wall, unframed.
-Whether to trip the dude running by in those five-toed shoes;
-How much longer I can feign interest in TED talks before someone catches on.
On a typical Friday night I am
Trying (and generally failing) to convince people that if they'd come over to Oakland just this once, I'd make all their wildest dreams come true...

Or in the audience at a dimly-lit Bernal attic, cheering an ambitious new performance artist as he excoriates tech hegemony and demands a return to a San Francisco unmarred by the icy grip of gentrification...

The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Fully caught-up on "Downton Abbey"...

Closet Jason DeRulo fan.
You should message me if
Real world > interwebs world. Let's meet up already.
