Lord Grantham: "So Mr. curbs10009, I'm most skeptical my daughter would be inclined to date a lowly exploiter of the canine masses. Most likely, she would much prefer a chauffeur.
curbs10009: "Lord Grantham, my words were merely meant to convey a whimsical sensibility. Your daughter's appreciation of such hypothetical satire is one of her finest attributes. In fact she convinced PBS to make a series about some people you probably know."
LG: "Indeed, throughout her youth she has been known to exalt in spirited jest. Creative type, are you? hmmmph So how do you pay the rent tribute?"
curbs: "Your lordship, I have the good fortune to be in the employ of King de Blasio. I'm a teacher."
LG: "It was rumored to me that teachers can only afford to sleep on futons in Bushwick Abbey in railroad apartments with 5 roommates?"
curbs: "Sir, I appreciate your concern, but I assure you that I reside in splendorous solitude in the East Village, well steeled away from the uncouth taint of hipster roommates."
Usually I'm not this obtuse, but sometimes a little weirdness is a good filter. Abstract: I'm an autism intervention teacher/therapist. I ride my bike around Brooklyn and work with extra special kiddos in their appartments. I also design communication devices for them. Occasionally I freelance as a photojournalist. My last big project was a book about New Orleans street performers. I go back there from time to time to get updates. http://sidewalksaints.com .
1. The size of my soul is immeasurable.
2. I'm really 5'4" but my legs are wooden and it's gonna rain.
3. Yeah, I keep getting bigger. (intellectually)
I play piano, string harp and guitar
Here's me playing an old school jazz song: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3nuWpfFLadM
Books: Mostly narrative nonfiction. Fascinated with social histories, particularly ones told in the first person. My favorite genre is well edited oral history with awesome pictures.
How to take candid, artistic photos without being an obnoxious jerk.
(It's real easy but when the alarm goes off they make you put the statue back)
You'd like to meet up.
