I'm interested in things. Music is my radar. I've got a head full of quandary and a mighty, mighty thirst.
I am big-hearted, soulful, and weird. Weird's a feature, not a bug! Mostly, I'm enthusiastic about life and all the amazing things in this world that make it worth living to its fullest. Come have adventures with me!
Movies: All things Noah Baumbach. Woody Allen is a questionable human being but I love "Annie Hall" and "Manhattan" and a lot of his other films. "The Shawshank Redemption", "Monty Python's The Meaning Of Life", "High Fidelity", "Wonder Boys," "Rushmore", "Trainspotting", "American Beauty", "Ferris Bueller's Day Off", "Lost In Translation", "Back To The Future", "Clerks".

Monty Python, Spaced, The Young Ones, Black Books, Father Ted, and on and on. The Office. Mad Men. Star Trek (Deep Space Nine is my fave). The State. Firefly. SNL. Anthony Bourdain's shows. Freaks & Geeks. Undeclared. Futurama. Roseanne. Quantum Leap. 30 Rock. Flight of the Conchords. Bob's Burgers. The Last Man On Earth. Law & Order. Dun dun.
