My self-summary
I'm a B-side person. You know the band, but not this track. Savoy Truffle, for instance. The more obscure the more I'm intrigued. I'd like to see the office of the person who designs Cracker Jack prizes or Halloween masks. When I went to Tokyo my most important goal was to find the neighborhood where cottage factories make the rubber food.

When I was a little kid an early fascination with media was Orson Welles' War Of The Worlds radio broadcast, which convinced a surprisingly large segment of listeners that Martians had invaded Earth. That got me thinking about a lot of stuff. Pop culture permeates my mind, which has honed my sense of humor. That's one of the main places I learned what's funny despite my clinical analysis of it. Blazing Saddles is a major touchstone. (Perhaps this should go in the most private thing I'm willing to admit section.) But obscure humor isn't the only thing going inside my head. I get a strong sense of connection when I'm out in nature. It's a sense that whatever humans have created with their minds pales in comparison to nature's long, slow and overwhelmingly incomprehensible accomplishments.
What I’m doing with my life
Writing for a living while I write, playing drums in various bands and collectives, taking care of my parents, marketing my spec screenplays.
I’m really good at
Thinking funny, appreciating funny, saluting the elusive colonel of truth, listening to Live At Leeds, winding up in places I never expected, seeing things clearly out of focus, percolating ideas, cutting to the chase, making margaritas. And love doing these things with a charming, beautiful partner.
The first things people usually notice about me
I'm alive. Then they move onto my eyes or hair maybe.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: Martin Amis, the classics we've all read or meant to. Movies: The Third Man, Ox-Bow Incident, Apocalypse Now, Casablanca, The Big Sleep, Rosemary's Baby, Dr Strangelove, HELP!, Monty Python And The Holy Grail, Old Boy. TV Shows: True Detective, Breaking Bad, Mad Men, Dexter (up to season 7), Eastbound and Down, Mary Tyler Moore Show, The Prisoner, SCTV. Music: The Beatles, Spirit, The Grateful Dead, Rolling Stones, Little Feat, B-52's, Led Zeppelin, Jimi, Leon Russell, Miles, Mingus, Ellington, Ella, Frank, Buddy Rich...
Six things I could never do without
Playing and practicing drums, playing live music with my bands, the Beatles, Mexican food, Hubble photographs, dogs.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Existence, humor, what a great sun we have (that created a snowflake, Frank Sinatra, chocolate fudge, everything) even if it's going to scorch earth to a cinder in a few billion years. And in the meantime, always improving my drumming chops.
On a typical Friday night I am
Playing live music somewhere around the Bay Area; having dinner with fiends. My r key is broken. Oh, um ...
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I like Pixy Stix. The blue ones.
You should message me if
Despite all of the above you find me approachable. You're smart, attractive, enjoy intellectual interplay as a path to romantic connection that embraces the absurdity and wonder of life while having fun doing it. In street parlance, a rockin', groovy, hip nerd who wants to share that with me and wants mine to share.

I'm not big on dancing, but am a willing learner.
The two of us
