My self-summary
I'm not much of one for chit-chat, small talk, or listening to complaints, but I'm getting better at it. I enjoy listening to people discuss stuff they've clearly put a lot of thought into, or topics they're passionate about. I tend to engage in conversation about movies, and big boring ideas, like political and moral philosophy, but I don't mind listening when I have nothing to contribute.

I have a weird sense of humor. It's dry and a little sarcastic, and it takes a while for people to get used to it and for me to get comfortable employing it around new people. I think most new people think I'm weird, and I think most of them are right.
What I’m doing with my life
When the weather is nice, I like to hike in state parks, walk around a boardwalk or a new town, or just sitting on my deck and read. Sometimes I drive around or take the train into New York and bum around.

During the day I work at a title insurance company, where we facilitate real estate transactions. It's a job at a place, not much more to it.

Sometimes I like to sit at coffee shops and bars, just to hang out. I'm not real big on TV or internet. I enjoy minding my own business and thinking my own thoughts.

Sometimes I'll get together with friends in South Jersey on the weekends. It's getting tougher though as they move away or enter romantic relationships.
I’m really good at
I am an excellent foosball player, but nobody cares. I have a few similarly-irrelevant hidden talents and strengths. You ever see a drummer twirl his drumsticks? Well I'm the best you'll ever see. I'm pretty good at games that use only your brain, like rummy and hearts and trivial pursuit.

It may be strange to say, but I'm pretty good at my job. I think it's important to do something you can take pride in, even if it's not particularly interesting.

How many things can a person claim to be good at before it warrants an accusation of narcissism? I like to think I can be pretty articulate. I like to make casual observations in clever ways, and they usually can get a laugh.
The first things people usually notice about me
I never asked anyone the first thing they noticed about me, so I don't really know. The most frequent comment is that I don't talk much.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: White Noise (Don DeLillo), A Clockwork Orange (Anthony Burgess), On the Road (Jack Kerouac), Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy (Douglas Adams), Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas (Hunter Thompson) most books written by Paul Auster, the occasional Stephen King or Michael Crichton. I was recently on a "hard-boiled detective" kick with books by Ross MacDonald, but have since picked up the Game of Thrones series (George R.R. Martin).

Movies: I love movies, and I love talking about movies with people who love movies. I especially like the Coen brothers (Millers Crossing, Fargo, O Brother, Where Art Thou). I like older movies (Casablanca), especially Charlie Chaplin (Modern Times, City Lights), and kids movies (Walle, Hugo, The Lion King). I like Martin Scorcese (esp Gangs of New York and Goodfellas), Sam Mendes (American Beauty, Road to Perdition), and Woody Allen (Annie Hall, Manhattan). I like a lot of movies, and I love to talk about them.

Shows: Seinfeld, Community, 30 Rock, How I Met You Mother, Futurama, Simpsons, Arrested exposure is pretty limited, but I have a penchant for sitcoms and cartoons.

Music: I mostly listen to early classic rock (1963-1977). I have a pretty solid (if outdated) CD collection, most of which fall in that range. Favorites include The Beatles, Bob Dylan, Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin, Pink Floyd, CCR, and Neil Young, but these days I'm trying to expand my horizons when it comes to music.

Food: I could probably survive on chicken parmesan sandwiches and western omelets for the rest of my life. I'm no foodie, but I can appreciate a good meal.
Six things I could never do without
My friends, movies, my phone, music, whiskey, and books.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
funny-sounding words and phrases. I think about my self and future. I spend a lot of time thinking about people. What drives us, and why we act the way we do. How should we act and how should we educate our children to act?
I think about a lot of different things. I like to estimate the economics of small shops and restaurants. Sometimes I think about recent national and world events, and what consequences they'll have.
I also enjoy thinking about the arts I enjoy: music and movies, mostly. I think it's important to know what you like, and why you like it, even if the answer is "just because."
On a typical Friday night I am
Recently, I've been going to Red Bank or Asbury Park to have a drink and see an independent movie.
Sometimes I go to South Jersey to hang out with friends from high school, but one by one, they're all moving away.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I have an irrational fear of anonymously revealing private things on the internet.
You should message me if
I don't know...if you feel like it. What kind of question is this?
The two of us
