My self-summary
I'm a pretty goofy person, if you couldn't tell from the photos...
What I’m doing with my life
Trying to get it right, trying to make my friends laugh, trying not to let it go to waste.

Stuff i do or wish i could do everyday: being outdoors, reading some good fiction, listening to public radio, watching the Braves win, watching football, putting stories on paper, eating and/or cooking delicious food, throwing a good party
I’m really good at
Talking to strangers, making buddies, keeping friends, over-analyzing, drinking whiskey

AND irritating people with my pedantry.
The first things people usually notice about me
I don't think i care what the first thing someone notices about me is.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I like all kinds of books - interesting histories, graphic novels and comic books (esp. anything Batman-related), pop social science, literary analysis, mostly anything as long as i can put it down when it starts to bore me. When it comes to fiction: most stuff by Nabokov, Flannery O' Connor, Shakespeare's histories and tragedies, Kurt Vonnegut, George Eliot, John Dos Passos, Hemingway, Fitzgerald, David Sedaris, Arthur Conan Doyle, D.H. Lawrence - i could keep going for a while.

All time movie faves: Annie Hall, Chinatown, Confessions of a Dangerous Mind, Ghostbusters, Grosse Pointe Blank, The Big Lebowski, Parenthood, the original Bad News Bears

Music: some of my go-tos: Bob Dylan, Wilco, Pearl Jam, Modest Mouse, Tom Waits, Johnny Cash, the Pixies, Springsteen, Leonard Cohen, Andrew Bird, The Flaming Lips, Radiohead, Miles Davis, Charlie Parker, Bud Powell, Rusted Root, Charles Mingus, Nina Simone, Marvin Gaye, early Rolling Stones, John Prine, Bach, Blind Melon, Led Zeppelin, Ali Farka Toure, Van Morrison, Stevie Wonder, Neil Young, Gil Scott-Heron, The Talking Heads, Broken Bells, Mumford and Sons, Arcade Fire, Wolf Parade, Handsome Furs, Postal Service, Avett Bros., the National, MANMAN

TV: "TV is a problem only if you've forgotten how to look and listen...(young people) are beginning to feel they ought to turn against the medium, exactly as an earlier generation turned against their parents and their country. I tell them they have to learn to look as children again. Root out content. Find the codes and messages..."

There's some really good TV out there, all you have do is wade through the vile stream of crap that advertisers and idiot network execs think you want to see.

Food: Anything interesting and tasty - especially if it's not fried or drenched in cheese; its pretty easy to make something taste good when it's covered in fat.
Six things I could never do without
words, music, my goofy buddies, new ideas, the outdoors, whiskey
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Why the world is as it is; why people are who they are; the hidden meanings of words; how the hell to get home.
On a typical Friday night I am
Goofing around with friends; seeing local bands; figuring out how to make the most of the coming Saturday.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I have an irrational tendency to anthropomorphize and become overly-attached to inanimate objects... such as rocks i find on the street and overripe tomatoes at the grocery store...
You should message me if
You're not an asshole; or, if you're an asshole, you're a funny asshole
The two of us
