My self-summary
I think about human nature and geopolitics quite a lot, but there are times I can't stop laughing. I really enjoy luxuries like excellent food and foreign travel, but the best work I’ve ever done was pure class struggle. I know a lot, but you definitely could teach me a few things.

I ask follow-up questions. I like people, food, film, and music from all over the world. I don’t like yippy dogs or public clocks that don't keep time. I have an amazingly cute 9 year old boy (part-time). He’s made me a better person.

I’m Left, not liberal. I don't smoke, drink, or do drugs, but I don't need help overcoming inhibitions (obviously I don't mind if you drink). I try to live by certain ideals and fail more often than I'd like--meat is f’in delicious! I'm not a hipster, so I'll still have a beard when the fad's died out. I'm not on Facebook. I'm originally from Philadelphia. I like to dance.

I don't talk in staccato lists. I just don't.

I'm a snob about movies--really like the foreign, indie, and classics. Did you see Beasts of the Southern Wild?! Theeb? Tangerine? Tangerines? (yep, they're different) I'm well-traveled and although being a dad has limited my int'l jaunts to Mexico for the last several years, I still do cool trips to National Parks and other assorted destinations.

I'm flattered by the "likes" I get. Since I don't have a paid OKC account, know that if you like me, it'll remain anonymous for eternity.

To me, a good relationship has to include laughter and fun. If I fall for you, you’ll be able to get me to do things that I wouldn't consider for anyone else. Andale Cupid!
What I’m doing with my life
Working, parenting, trying to have fun
I’m really good at
one thing in the kitchen: challah french toast
a couple other things, too
The first things people usually notice about me
I'm tall, and my smile
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I'm not reading a lot of books these days, but I know if I say Murakami people will think I'm cool. And I surprised myself by reading 1Q84, which is fantastic. I check the NYT and al-Jazeera online for news.

I like Lila Downs and Led Zeppelin; Mos Def and Martha Wainwright; Beyoncé and Built to Spill.

I'm not into country music, but I think this is a piece of beautiful poetic genius: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tE2uEl_aB9E

I used to think all tv was stupid (well, not Seinfeld). Then I was introduced to The Wire, Mad Men, Shameless, Breaking Bad. Some serious writing talent went to cable! So now I watch some.

Snobby movie favorites: M, The Bicycle Thief, The White Balloon, Only Lovers Left Alive, Wind Journeys, the Apu trilogy, Matewan, Raising Arizona, Cocaine Cowboys II, Borat, and scores more.

I think paella may be the world's best dish. I love bbq that's delicious even before the sauce goes on. Sugar in all forms is my true carnal vice.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
the pale blue dot
who you might be and when we'll finally meet
On a typical Friday night I am
at home with my boy or doing something I found in the East Bay Express or SFBG. Or working out even though I'm really not in the mood.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
My family is part of the global banking conspiracy based in Zurich.
You should message me if
more than half of this resonates, or one thing resonates deeply
The two of us
