My self-summary
I'm a warm, solid, intelligent guy. I sometimes fall asleep in the shirt I wore all day. I make good coffee. I try to keep my plants alive.

I like intelligent, interesting or kind guys. I find smarts and humor and awareness all really attractive. I kid around with the people I love.

I'm a filmmaker and I teach filmmaking at a university. In a lot of ways I'm like my students; I get interested in some new thing-- a director, a film, a book, some food, whatever-- and I like to share it with everyone around me.
What I’m doing with my life
Reading Raymond Chandler right now, also Maus 1 & 2 again, and some other stuff. Trouble is my Business (R. Carver) is the best writing I've come across in years.

-I stay involved with the lives of my two god-children who live here in the city. I see them once a week at least.
I’m really good at
Starting a fire with a Duraflame log.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
My friends told me the list below is a surefire way to scare nice, normal people away and that I should erase the whole thing. You don't have to know or like any of the following:

Edward Hopper, Primo Levi, Mel Brooks, Jacques Demy's films, Harold Pinter screenplays, Cassavetes' A Woman Under the Influence, The Field Guide to American House Architecture, stupid blockbusters, Mario Bava, Robert Bresson, all those nazi documentaries on Netflix, Flannery O'Connor, The Four Last Songs, Charles Burchfield watercolors, Suspiria, Frankenstein, Pier Paolo Pasolini,
Six things I could never do without
Six things I'd be worse off without:

- Pizza at John's on Bleecker,

- the amusement park scene in Lola,

- the credits of Psycho,

- Arrabiata sauce,

- my apartment,

- Thirteen Ways of Looking at a Blackbird
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Just get rid of the "about" /\...
On a typical Friday night I am
Stoop sitting, people watching, laughing with my idiotic friends over some joke that was bad to begin with but has grown funny through repetition, going to the Strand, eating on some bench, balancing a book and a cup of hot chocolate…sometimes malbec is involved.
The two of us
