I will notice and appreciate how your hands move and your mouth quirks.
Graphic novels: Blankets, Habibi, Bone, Zot!, and all things Chris Ware.
Movies: Her, Stranger Than Fiction, The Science of Sleep
Music: Indie longhair sad bands that tell elaborate stories (Okkerville River, Arcade Fire, Mountain Goats). Extremely into San Fermin. Also into bassy electronic a la Purity Ring or Grimes.

The intersection of systemic and poetic.

You're good with words, both the serious and the joking kind.
