I've lived in England, Hungary, Japan and a handful of US states. Been in Boston for nine years now so I guess I've found a home, at least for now. Not much for image management but I've had to learn it for my job. I'd still rather look silly having fun than look cool being bored. People tell me I march to the beat of a different drummer, etc., which is something I never really set out to do, as I am certainly not the confrontational outlaw rebel. (In fact, I usually find those people reeeally boring at their core.) I mostly like feeling like I'm connecting with people rather than playing at human interaction like it's a game to determine social standing. Also, I'm crazy about stories... from the Epic of Gilgamesh onwards to the modern TV serial.
Also trying to muster up the discipline/courage to revise my own novel's first draft and send it off to agents.
Movies is too big a topic to really dig into here so I'll just say favorite directors include the Coen brothers, Jim Jarmusch, Quentin Tarantino, Joss Whedon, and Jeanne-Pierre Jeunet.
Enjoy serialized cable dramas like Breaking Bad, Justified, Mad Men, and Game of Thrones. My favorite comedies are usually too clever their own good and get canceled after a couple seasons, e.g. Arrested Development, Community. It's amazing how well Broad City's doing. Also, I love Adventure Time. I can't imagine not loving it. In general I still love animation in my 30s and will never stop, too bad if anyone thinks its just for kids. I do NOT like most procedurals in the doctor/cop/lawyer axis, reality TV, and most 3-camera sitcoms.
Musical taste runs towards critics' darlings of all genres. But I'll listen to more obscure stuff like Mojo Nixon too (and I think it's hilarious he was in the Super Mario Brothers movie.) All time favorites include Johnny Cash, Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds, The Clash, Talking Heads, The National, and The Cure. (And I love dancing to cheeseball 80s music.)
Working with my hands.
Movie night get togethers.
I'm a little weirded out when I see all these 99% match percentages. Who are these people?! I thought I was a unique little snowflake...
Seriously though, nothing I put here ever feels right.
