I was born and raised in Vancouver. I speak a bunch of different languages (not all fluently though), and I'm an artist (musician/writer/filmmaker).
One thing about me that I'm not ashamed to admit is that I'm a complex guy. People may make assumptions about me based on this profile or even after meeting me, but there's a lot to me that you would only understand and learn if you stick around.
And I like to think it's all worth it, too.
Others: playing piano, feeling extremely awkward, watching movies without unnecessary commentary, taking walks in (comfortable) silence
Movies: oh god, there are so many. Citizen Kane, Amélie, The Apartment, The Artist, All is Quiet on the Western Front, anything from Miyazaki, The General (Buster Keaton), etc. etc. Trying to watch all of imdb's Top 250 movies; I've seen 181 so far.
Music: intelligent pop music such as Vanessa Carlton, Rufus Wainwright, Jamie Cullum, Fiona Apple, Kelly Clarkson, but also jazz and Classical too. Oh, and everyone gripes about country music, but classic country music -- Patsy Cline's "Crazy", "You Belong to Me", Conway Twitty’s "It’s Only Make Believe" -- that's some of the best, most heartbreaking music that has ever existed.
