My self-summary
Born in NYC, I was raised and educated in the likeable enough state of Maryland. Then I did some traipsing around the country looking in here, settling there until finally I made a return trip to San Francisco where I've no been for awhile. I work for a living, play guitar and compose songs for fun, and writing is my somewhat difficult vocation. I almost always have a book in my hand* but I'm more than glad to put it down for some conversation. My moods are effected by the seasons and now that it is spring I feel buoyant, rather more life is for living than in the dark season just past. I think I will take up jogging on April the first. That is not a joke or a "fool." One of these days I'm going to buy a boat. I'd like to believe there is a love of my life. I am not afraid of spiders.


I am un, chien, and alusia
What I’m doing with my life
Reading obsessively, drinking socially, songsmithing, writing creatively and trying to make more money (roughly in that order).
I’m really good at
Looking like just maybe I have something profound to say. Also, occasional profundity. Also, bringing women chocolate. Maybe a few other things. Definitely not exercises of this sort.
The first things people usually notice about me
My deer in the headlights look. My sexy dancing. That I know things I shouldn't.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
a) 2666 by Roberto Bolano is a fine book, my favorite in years. I also enjoy the works of Nicola Barker David Foster Wallace, Neal Stephenson, Thomas Pynchon and Melville. So I guess I like long books. b)By sheer times viewed I'm afraid Raiders of the Lost Ark would be my favorite film, however the work of Godard, particularly Le Mepris, Un Bout de Souffle, and Alphaville score high as well. Also the Jerk is hilarious. c) I like music in many of it's myriad forms particularly teenage filmstars and, oh look, if it was on Creation Records I probably like it; Bowie, Architecture in Helsinki, Duran Duran, Prince, Broken Social Scene, Neko Case, Aimee Mann especially and my own band Hot Farm. d) I have heard good things about food, supposedly it goes well with wine, of which I am fond of particularly the Italian Piedmont varieties.
Six things I could never do without
Never? That's a long time and quite emphatic. But, uh, that most dreaded of all emotions- hope (love), music, shelter, cross-word puzzles, Italian wine and er, shamefully perhaps, baby pandas. Grown pandas are fine too, I guess. Maybe I should put something about the love of a good woman (by whatever definition of that we may agree to) in here?
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Lately it's been character v. psychology both in literature and in life. Then how I should get out more, followed by song structure (thirds and fifths and whatnot, though music theory can make my eyes glazeover). A morning companion.
On a typical Friday night I am
Probably, playing guitar while drinking a tad too much wine if you want honesty or whatever. It's vaguely possible I might be at the opera which I enjoy. Fantasy scenarios include [fill in the blank].
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I have this fantasy: I meet a lovely woman. A certain of number of dates follow. On the one in question we share a good bottle of wine and conversation. We find ourselves at your place and topping the pile of your to be read pile of books is the Pale King, a book I have mixed feelings about. I pick it up and you notice and then we find ourselves in a most intimate conversation, and then...
You should message me if
You know of any excellent tour plans.
You would like to tour with me!
You are thinking maybe I would tour with him but I would prefer to get to know him in the meantime.

Or you know you are at leastCavalier but kind, bookish, spontaneous, and but shabby genteel suits or complements your own style. Also if you play a musical instrument of any sort write posthaste to me
The two of us
