Right now, my life is a bit at sea--but only metaphorically, otherwise I would be happier and probably without wifi. I'm writing as much as I can, baking for a living, and cultivating a healthy, anti-state attitude. I'm not in a band. I'm a libra. I don't like Jung, so I'm knee-jerk against the whole INFTPRLQN thing; but I won't harangue you if you find it meaningful.
Schul shopping without admitting it's schul shopping. Looking for a decent bagel.
The bit about AP is a lie. I hate AP style and I resent my foxy history teacher for making me use it.

Movies and TV: I like silly, campy things, and classic old movies from the golden age of hollywood. I also love almost any kung-fu movie, and almost any musical. Sometimes I watch K-Dramas, and occasionally I watch anime. My favorite movies are Blazing Saddles and The Producers.
The music I listen to the most is hip-hop; the genres I aspire to the most in my own humble efforts are jazz and the blues; the three artists I grew up listening to for whom I have an unshakeable affection are Iggy Pop, Tom Waits, and Kate Bush. The one album constantly on repeat is the cowboy bebop ost (yes, you are dealing with one of those guys).
I like all foods except anything cream-based. I think it has something to do with my psyche.
I forgot to mention smooth tenor sax. Update: smooth tenor sax is under threat from slide guitar.
I am dismayed by how pedestrian Oxford comma jokes have become. I've seen them on at least two other profiles now, and I'm just going to have to think of something more original to put here. Probably a pun.
Just joshing you, I don't believe in that stuff.
P. S., I'm transgender (ftm). If you don't recognize the terms or want to know more, I recommend this neat search engine called Google.
A note to potential interlocutors, transgender is not my gender identity (dude is my gender identity) and does not define me as a person. If you'd like to talk, please don't lead with the above. It's pretty boring for me by now.
Okay, since no one has ever messaged me trying to guess which team I'd best like to be assigned to, I'll just tell you. Team Gai forever. Savor your springtime of youth.
You want to smash the state, if by "smash the state" you mean dismantle state-based systems of oppression like the prison system, the police force, the stock exchange, white supremacy, etc. etc. etc. And if by "smash" you actually mean smash, and not "write a strongly-worded letter".
You want to talk Torah/Talmud.
You want get a drink together. I hate drinking alone!
