My self-summary
Living in LeDroit Park, absolutely love it. Which chain-but-not-a-chain bar and restaurant is your favorite? I mock them but also mostly love most of them. Most.

If you mention Anthony Bourdain in your profile but have never approached someone like him in a bar, there's a 99% chance you're on okcupid. Let's hang out and consider ruining each other emotionally for a while.
What I’m doing with my life
During the week I analyze things for a company that does neat things with technology. Painting things on my wall. Playing bocce. Trying to retain my Spanish skills. Building furniture. Mandolining. And I want to be an Avett Brother.
I’m really good at
Bringing levity to serious conversations, remaining appropriately noncompetitive during recreational sports, finding silver linings, making really awful faces, Catchphrase.
The first things people usually notice about me
I tell a lot of stories.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: Getting back into short stories, (Adam Haslett and Alice Munroe at the moment), Handmaid's Tale...anything Margaret Atwood, Roald Dahl, David/Amy Sedaris, Lamb, Chuck Klosterman, The Art of Fielding, Ender's Game, Game of Thrones, Asimov. Predictably depressing modern sad-fests (Great Gatsby, The Sun Also Rises).

When I read a book and love it I usually can't hold on to it for more than a few days before I give it to someone and make them read it.

Movies: Paul Newman, Elizabeth Taylor, Moon, Neverending Story, Simon Birch, Let the Right One In, Wreck it Ralph, Akira, Hitchcock, Jarmusch, Spike Lee, Wes Anderson.

Shows: Flight of the Conchords, Summer Heights High, Firefly, Community, Cosby Show, Cowboy Bebop, Adventure Time.

Music: Avett Brothers, Townes Van Zandt, The Zombies, Chris Thile/Punch Brothers, Sam Cooke, Bill Withers, Delicate Steve, Sufjan, Ratatat, Santo & Johnny, Charlie Megira, Brenda Lee, Lead Belly, Typhoon.

Food: Picky eaters are highly suspect. It's almost always a sign of some more sinister character issue.

Other: Dan Savage, This American Life, Gordon Ramsey cooking things.
Six things I could never do without

I spend a lot of time thinking about
On a typical Friday night I am
Whiskey, rooftops, conversations shouted over live music.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
In 2nd grade I lost in the last round of the spelling bee on the word 'FRIEND'.

I don't particularly enjoy TED talks.
You should message me if
You like to have your way with words.

Walking is your preferred method of transportation/therapy/problem solving.
