My self-summary
Small business owner (bar/venue), non-political bicyclist (meaning, I don't yell at the tourists, and I don't own a skintight multicolored onesie with redbull logos all over it), decent cook, artist, raconteur & connoisseur of all things tolerable.
What I’m doing with my life
Most/some of the above.
I’m really good at
I'm pretty much 100% musically inclined if that's of any use. Outside of that, I love our city, having been here for 19+ years now. I know some good spots - I better take a look and see if some of them have closed, tho... just in case someone calls me out on that.
The first things people usually notice about me
My eyes are nice, mom says at least. Who knows. Feel free to tell me yourself. If it was 1987, I'd say my asymmetrical skater haircut - but I think those days might be done...
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Non-fiction, fiction, anything, really. Sometimes I read the dedication before the back summary. Some I can't get past the forward, some I can't stop re-reading certain paragraphs.

Total lover of film. Going to the movies is something I love to do, but don't do often enough (I'm talking about revivals & special screenings etc, especially hard to resist in NYC). American sadsacks in the 70's is a favorite genre, & Claustrophobic Sci-Fi. I used to listen to every director's commentary track on every DVD, no matter how dumb, back when Netflix allowed that on their discs. Really enjoying the Mary Hartman, Mary Hartman 320 episode boxset thing that came out last month..

Total music obsessive. A record person. Extra gigantic and dumb record collection. Lots of Peggy Lee right now, and not totally sure why, but lots of thrash metal (kreator/nuclear assault/anthrax/coroner/exodus/voivod?). Arthur Russell always. SONDHEIM. DEVO. Roland Kirk. Low. Mammane Sani et son Orgue. Soundtracks of any kind. You get it.

Food is great. I'm currently 100% vegan, but again, not preachy about it.
Six things I could never do without
Pre-Spring 2016: Basil, This cool blanket I found at an estate sale that somehow doesn't smell like death, Elliot Gould, Hot Air Popcorn Popper from 1982, Merry Clayton's singing on Gimme Shelter... I'm learning how to live without stuff in general, and be less tethered. My dog Lili is the best thing in my world. I won't bore you about that fact, unless you really want that boredom of course.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Clydesdale-driven sleighrides thru the forests of Switzerland on a candlelit trail, also 1976-era Phil Collins.
On a typical Friday night I am
Varying degrees of out & about, at work, or working on home projects/your mixtape.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Dat's private.
You should message me if
This awkward resume here strikes your fancy in the slightest or mostest. ...I don't see likes, so please send a message.

...Also: if you want to form a band. I'm serious. I think the idea of a band made up of people who awkwardly met on OkCupid first is a gimmick worth exploring. Surely this is also how Fleetwood Mac did it?

...It is my dream to date a Cellist.

...Also-also, I just wanted to mention I'm totally good for a pals-ship. Many of my close friends don't live in NYC anymore, this year cleared 4 of 'em! It's just this sad, dumb fact about our city that I forgot happens, so lets go buy a NYC bagel/pizza/vegan egg cream, get sweared-at-by-a-Times-Square-Elmo, see 50 great bands in one night, & rub it in their faces. I hate pizza & bagels, but you get the point.
The two of us
