My self-summary
Just to be clear...I'm not looking to date or hookup. I'm in between Portland Maine and moving to Toronto(to spend most of my time but will be coming back Maine/New England frequently).

Random things about me;
-Fan of live music....everything about it(except that Beiber kid--is he the anti-Christ?).
-Likes unconventional and absurd art that challenges thought
-Listens to NPR...weekend programming is great
-Slightly unconventional, experiantial, experimental but adventurous.
-Likes skiing, snowshoeing, hiking and bad movies from the 70s and 80s
-Prefers Indie films to Hollywood films with typical happy endings
-Politically Liberal
-Drives barefoot in the summer
-Prefers "hole in the wall" restaurant and local dive bars
-Checks out other's profiles for new artists and music
-I make a mean Chicken Paprikash

What I’m doing with my life
Being relevant
I’m really good at
Driving in NYC and parking on San Fran hills
Taking OK Cupid tests
The first things people usually notice about me
The eyes, yes, definitely the eyes.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
My musical taste is very broad and far reaching. I prefer more cutting edge with raw lyrics and really talented artists. Artists include Dresden Dolls, Dengue Fever, Zero 7, Liz Longley, PJ Harvey, Bitter Ruin, Hannah Fury, Within Temptation etc.... In general, I'm not a fan of gangsta rap, and twangy country but I do like Bluegrass--Go figure.

Indie, foreign or documentaries. Some of these are; One Night on Earth(points if you know this one!), The Two Ninas, Closer, The Cooler, Glengarry Glen Ross, Garden State, Undercover Brother, Run Lola Run, Corpse Bride(Tim Burton) any Woody Allen and Chistopher Guest films

Non-fiction books. I'm always interested in what motivates and inspires people and their behavior. For fiction, I like something a little more cutting edge and/or humour. Recently finished "Half the Sky" but also like Malcolm Gladwell, David Sedaris and Dan Ariely.

For Food, I'll go with just about anything. I'm eathing healthier and going more organic. For favorites.- Ethiopian, Tapas, Thai, Sushi, Indian, Comfort, BBQ, Chicken Paprikash, Middle Eastern, Canadian(are you paying attention?)
The six things I could never do without
Live music, paprika, autumn, creamy peanut butter, hot water in the morning and transportation
I spend a lot of time thinking about
hmmmmmmm.
On a typical Friday night I am
Friday nights aren't typical. But, Mondays are.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Not so fast there, missy....
