My self-summary
First of all, let's get the fedora out of the way. I know there's a thing about Guys on OK Cupid Who Wear Fedoras. I don't care. I am a 20th-level contrarian, which means I can pull off the fedora with impunity.

I'm an artist, I founded a small Williamsburg gallery, I day-job for a deceased collector's estate, and yet art makes me cranky as hell. But it's okay, since most of my friends tell me that I'm at my funniest, my most vividly alive, when I have a bug up my ass about something.

Do you ever see creative types on this site, and you can't help but think, 'Maybe they make really bad work. Maybe that's why they're single'?
That's not me.
Er, I think that's not me?

I like to think of myself as 'mostly not a dick'.

I give good nicknames. Just ask my friends Moonbeam and Torchy. Or my niece, Eyeball. Or my cat, Cobramouth Marshmallow.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm reading, drawing, and trying to drink 1.5 glasses of wine before bed. I'm told that you can get the same beneficial effects of wine from drinking pomegranate juice. Why the hell anyone would want to do that is beyond me.
I’m really good at
Pragmatic skills: I can build. I built my own loft and my own gallery, and I'm pretty proud of that.

DISCLAIMER: I am not 'really good' at construction, compared to actual contractors. I have lots of art-related skills but I'm more impressed that I can build walls and floors, so that's what I'm leading with. Also, bragging about what you do creatively strikes me as douche-y.

I'm also scary good at identifying obscure character actors. If Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon was an olympic sport, I would be writing this from the bottom of a heap of gold medals.
The first things people usually notice about me
I'm funny. I don't have to be 'on' all the time like some demented college drama major, but I am funny when I need to be. And on those occasions, very funny indeed.*

*granted, this paragraph is not in itself particularly funny. You will just have to trust me on this.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Music: Lotsa stuff. Right now I could listen to The Slits' cover of 'Heard it Through the Grapevine' on repeat all day, and be happy.

Books and Comic Books: Consider the Lobster, Watchmen, Andy Kaufman Revealed! Safe Area Gorazde, Big Questions, Mike Kelley: Catholic Tastes, Meditations in an Emergency, Man in the High Castle, Infinite Jest, The Power Broker: Robert Moses and the Fall of New York

Movies: Nights of Cabiria, Mysterious Skin, In the Loop, Hunger, Bridesmaids, Mulholland Drive, Paper Moon, Three Kings, Ghostbusters, Matewan, Let the Right One In, Grizzly Man, Spider-Man 2

Game of motherf*cking THRONES, Peep Show, Kids in the Hall, The Wire, etc, etc

I'm an adventurous eater; The weirder it is, the more I want to try it. Love oysters, Japanese street food, Italian cuisine especially.
The six things I could never do without
1. Air holes
2. Involuntary muscles
3. Delicious, delicious protein
4. Cocktails (the perfect pre-protein snack)
5. GPS
6. Toilet access

Runners-up: Loved ones, personal integrity, etc.
I spend a lot of time thinking about

Just kidding, that would be OKCreepy
On a typical Friday night I am
Working in my studio, if I can help it.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm actually a psychotic, bloodthirsty clown. Oh, and I have a tendency to deflect uncomfortable questions with humor.
You should message me if
You are artsy, nerdy, smart. I don't believe I have a 'type', but I am a sucker for punky girls with short hair and/or glasses. In other words, lesbians.
