My self-summary
I like hip-hop, writing, and most people. I've also recently developed an appreciation for the Oxford comma.
What I’m doing with my life
I work in a hipster bar (which is okay because I'm a hipster). I'm also a free-lance journalist with an emphasis on music and business.

In the summer I spend a lot of time at music festivals, both for professional and partying reasons.

I'm a beer snob and sometimes chain-smoker. I have something of an addiction to my cell phone, but I'm trying to kick it.
I’m really good at
Talking about music and politics. Being a loyal and kick-ass friend.
The first things people usually notice about me
That even though I'm a fairly disinterested door guy when I'm at work, I'm not actually a dick.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
BOOKS: Political stuff like Naomi Klein, Jeremy Scahill, and my ultimate hero, Hunter S. Thompson
Fiction: Cormac McCarthy, Lawrence Block, Richard Ford, Annie Proulx

Movies: Mostly whatever I come across on Netflix.

Shows: The Wire, The Sopranos, Arrested Development, The Simpsons

Music (current stuff I'm listening to): So much hip-hop! Danny Brown, Dopehead, Boldy James, Guilty Simpson, Star Slinger, Skywlkr, Death Grips, Gang Starr, Wu-Tang

Non hip-hop: Bob Dylan, Springsteen, Lucero, Rolling Stones, Brian Jonestown Massacre, Neon Indian, Washed Out, Calexico, Radiohead, Hold Steady, you get the idea.

Food: seafood, burgers, Mexican, Italian, breakfast food

I spend a lot of time thinking about
-Politics and music and writing about them.
-Cute girls
On a typical Friday night I am
Sadly I'm usually working, but I have other nights off. Those are spent with friends (new and old), a variety of vices, new and old music, and often karaoke.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I knocked over a shit-load of huge trees in the forest with friends when I was 20, while wearing an American-flag cape and camp-fire war paint on my face. The cops came and were too terrified to do anything.
You should message me if
-You're into crazy, fun stuff once in a while (you can decide what that means).
-you like music and politics
-you're okay with someone who has an erratic sleeping schedule
The two of us
