Not divorced. No kids. Did live with an ex a few years back for four years though, so I can talk and stuff.
Doesn't have kids and can't have them. No, just kidding (I believe), but I just thought that was a funny concept for this site.
I was teaching jazz studies full time at the university of Rochester for the past four years, but now I'm in Brooklyn and trying to perform classical and jazz music and hopefully fall into some college teaching by the fall.
I just moved to the land of weird smells this summer, but so far I'm enjoying while simultaneously getting my ass kicked.
Having a string of bald men show up before me as matches on okc, and then, pazzow, I'm a fuckin' p i m p
My favorite movie of all time is Belle de Jour. Made in USA (Goddard) is also an incredible film.
Shows: Curb your Enthusiasm. Seinfeld. SCTV, sort of; it was probably funnier at the time. Six Feet Under. Dexter. Real Time. Frontline. BBC World. The Affair, haha. Vice news. Last week tonight. CNN, HBO, Showtime.
Books: Camus, Burroughs, Henry Miller, Kurt Vonnegut, Flannery O'Connor, Shakespeare. Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man, Invisible Man, Crime and Punishment, Howl, The Bell Jar, The Trial; not much contemporary stuff, I guess. The Stranger is my favorite novel so far.
Comedians: George Carlin, Sarah Silverman, Aziz Ansari, but only when he's impersonating R. Kelly. David Cross is my favorite. As you can see, my knowledge of comedy is quite historical in nature, haha.
Music: All kinds of crazy stuff. Anthony braxton the past week (no, not the r&b singer, although she is smooth as shit). I actually listen to a lot of pop music too. I've been trying to soak up the writing aesthetic of modern jazz tenor players, because I think there is a specific one.
2. Anti-psychotics (naw, just kidding).
3. My three beautiful teenage daughters. Okay, sorry, last joke.
