My self-summary
I like jokes, deadpan jokes and basketball and reading and writing
I'm a non-practicing socialist. I'm a romantic and uneasy but open-minded to OkCupid's rational procession toward finding a match.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm a journalist, covering labor issues, for pay. I write about basketball and other things for fun. I play tennis and the card game bridge. I like to read. I like to take baths.
I’m really good at
I have a good memory. I can tell you the top 25 rap albums of 1988, 1-25, the entire 1993 NBA draft first round, and also some non-trivial things.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Maybe it's an important part of my personality that I was one of those people who hated classic rock in high school and embraced sarcastic 80s punk/hardcore. But probably not so much anymore
I like 80s music -- I like rap, new wave, punk -- and I like other things.

I like chile relleno burritos.

Don DeLillo and Raymond Chandler are good writers

Risky Business and Jackie Brown are good movies
The six things I could never do without
I can do without most things -- I've moved a few times and things are a hassle. I need a bed and coffeemaker
I spend a lot of time thinking about
whether an audience is watching my life
On a typical Friday night I am
exploring L.A. which I'm still newish too - bars, diy rock shows, widely varied parties using parties somewhat loosely, bad stand-up comedy, good stand-up comedy. I place a high value on trying to experience and do new things, even if they make me uncomfortable, which, in L.A., they sometimes do. When I want to just be comfortable I watch basketball, read, watch Seinfeld, or listen to fast-paced early 90s R&B
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I literally gaze at my navel.
You should message me if
you're funny and thoughtful
