My self-summary
Doesn't Meredith Brook's song "I'm a bitch, I'm a lover" just kind of cover it? Isn't that what everyone writes here? And now you think I'm *that guy*, listening to that song. You know you turn it up in your car, don't lie. I do anyway, and then I am full of remorse. This is about me after all. Goddamn, that song is awful.

Hmm. Next, let's agree that these are self-selected descriptions that we put forth to portray ourselves in a certain light.

Pressing onward...
What I’m doing with my life
I saw a listing for tracking lions in the desert. I really wish that was my job. But, I hear the pay isn't great.

Anyway in my spare time:
Photo projects, a bit of film-directing/editing. Getting back into some acting. Developing a writing portfolio (articles). Trying on an elaborate recipe. Riding my motorcycle.

I am in the process of renovating a condo in an old textile mill, so that's fun.

By day, working 40 at a small publishing company. To wit: I have a new refrigerator and washer and dryer. This is baller. Renting your body to a company should be good for somethin, right?

However, I hope to have a new career in the next five years. I want a meaningful adventure.
I’m really good at
dancing like a fool until you decide to join me.
making dinner
making a song out of an uncomfortable situation
waxing philosophical
The first things people usually notice about me
That I'm easy to talk to. That I will continue a conversation right where it was left when someone comes back from the bathroom.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Some that affected me: Was. The Unbearable Lightness of Being. Alias Grace. 1984. The Corrections. Interpreter of Maladies. Welcome to the Monkey House. Others...

Currently Reading: on a book by Robert Mckee on storytelling, Dharma Bums, and The Fortress of Solitude.

(Hmmm. I guess I like a lot of self-reflective romantic comedies.)

I also get into foreign/documentary works.

I keep getting into conversations over:
The Wire (intelligent and insightful, excellent drama)
Six Feet Under (I watched the last episode twice and cried like a baby boy)
Dexter, but I gave up on it.
Breaking Bad
Game of Thrones (like 99% of everyone)
The Top of the Lake
Sherlock (BBC)
Madmen (Complicates my feelings about marriage, yikes)
House of Cards

***Childhood TV:
Wonder Woman (I was in love, I had it bad)
Felix the Cat
Pink Panther
Dr. Who

Endless shitty sitcoms that I am now embarrassed to mention...

Music moves me, I like a lot of it. There's no average week for me with music, but here are some:
Telepopmusik. The National. The Shins. Joni Mitchell. Radiohead. Tears for Fears. Ryan Adams. Thievery Corporation. Delta Spirit. Lovaage. Pulp. Chet Baker. Nat King Cole. The Walkmen. Morrissey. Clap Your Hands. XX. Bat for Lashes. Groove Armada. David Bowie. Arcade Fire.

Food: A lifelong goal to work through. I have food goals. I have recently acquired skills in pizza making with a stone, a peel, and homemade dough. Sweet lordy mama, it's good.

I like to gain skills, but the people's food is the best food. I just like it to be delicious. Can it please be delicious?
The six things I could never do without
-a consuming project
-a sharp knife kitchen knife
-music to soothe the savage beast
-cheese (you hear me talking? Let's be real)
-personal time
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Why people do things. The next project. A good book, song, film. How to make the perfect combination of flavors. How to get the coconut water out of the box, damn it.
On a typical Friday night I am
Variable. Relaxing, cooking with friends, seeing a movie, working on my condo, meeting up for a drink, hanging with friends, dancing. Maybe a book and some solo time. Sunning someplace until I'm eaten by wolves. Are you still reading this? Just go out with me!
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Oh probably a lot. Put a quarter in the machine and you'll find out.
You should message me if
-You have interests, damn it!
-You enjoy conversation
-You likely have the guts to grow a pair of ovaries and meet me for a little while.
