My self-summary
Hi, I'm Dennis!

Why am I on this site? Because I'm trying to cook more and all my recipes are for two. Well, two to four. Don't get any ideas, I'm good with leftovers.

Me in a nutshell? An affectionate geek looking for same.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm a recovering prosecutor who just returned to public service helping out the abused or neglected kids of NYC.
I’m really good at
Hitting electronics until they work. It's a legitimate repair method.
The first things people usually notice about me
My cape.

Juuuust kidding. I don't wear capes since I watched The Incredibles. They are WAY too dangerous.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Not an all-inclusive list, in fact many of my favorites might be missing. Tl;dr summary: I am a huge geek.

(A)Books: just a short collection of things I love to re-read.

1984 and others from that genre.

Neil Gaiman, both his published works and the excellent Sandman series.

I also have preformed in several Shakespeare works, and at one point or another read every play. I'm partial to King Lear, but it's probably just because I was Edmund in a production.

A Song of Ice and Fire :started and finished in two months. Worth every page. New additions; all series! The Magicians The Expanse Kingkiller Chronicals The First Law.

(B) My all-time favorite movie is Nightmare Before Christmas. Some others include, but this is in no way an exhaustive list; Hudson Hawk, Batman, Serenity, Rudy, Monty Python, Fifth Element, Dark City, Amilie, Donnie Darko, Pan's Labyrinth, Dark Knight, RoyalTennenbaums, Clue Cohen Brothers (I was going to add True Grit and Big Leb, but then I though, heck, all the Cohen Brothers movies apply).

Just noticed that no TV is listed. All time favorite, possibly of any medium? Batman TAS. Hands down, the stories, the noir, it all spoke to me. Even as an adult.

I grew up with X-files and Star Trek, and blossomed into Farscape , Buffy , Lost , Doctor Who (10 was my Doctor!), BSG , Firefly THE WIRE and more. Currently I am addicted to a bunch of CW shows, such as Arrow , Flash , The 100 among others. Don't judge! Lost Girl, Orphan Black

(C) Some of my favorite bands include Radiohead, Foo Fighters, The CureStone Temple Pilots, Pearl Jam, Metalica, They Might be Giants , Queens of the Stone Age, Regina Spektor, Tom Waits,Yoko Kanno, The Protomen, The Seatbelts, Arcade Fire, Florence and the Machine. Really, I love all types of music, provided they aren't manufactured, and instead sound raw and emotional. If you can feel the music, I will love it.

I also have a soft spot for early 20th century music, as well as Jazz/Blues (especially New Orleans sounds). I usually have that playing when I am being artistic.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
What does 'cook until done' mean. If I knew when 'done' was I wouldn't need the recipe.
On a typical Friday night I am
Cooking, Netflix, meeting friends at a bar or their apartment. Maybe board games. Sometimes all combined!
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
There is a painting of me in some attic that grows older with time while I remain a cheruban beauty.
You should message me if
You'll trade me a story for a story; could be funny, could be sad, could be true, could be fiction, heck, it could even be boring. Just a story for a story. We can even make each other chose a topic.
The two of us
