My self-summary
I'm serious about lots of issues, but there are times I can't stop laughing. I really enjoy the finer things, 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. 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. I try to live by certain ideals and fail more often than I'd like--meat is f’in delicious! I like to dance.

I don't talk in staccato lists. I really 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 mostly stopped the int'l jaunts, I still do cool trips to National Parks and other assorted destinations. I'm originally from Philadelphia; sarcasm plays a role in my banter. I'm not on Facebook.

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 be completely anonymous.

Sense of humor and fun are not optional! 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. I check the NYT and al-Jazeera online for news.

I like Lila Downs and Led Zeppelin; Mos Def and Martha Wainwright.

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!

Snobby movie favorites: M, The Bicycle Thief, The White Balloon, 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. Or bbq that's delicious before the sauce goes on. Sugar in all forms is my true carnal vice.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
who you might be
On a typical Friday night I am
at home with my boy or doing something I found in the East Bay Express or SFBG
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
My family is part of the global banking conspiracy based in Zurich. Working for money is just an elaborate cover.
