My self-summary
*Anyone else finding an uptick in transparently fake profiles lately, like, where the fakers don't even bother to match the gender of the photo to the stated gender of the profile? Any idea what this is about?

We now resume our regularly scheduled personal advertisement.

Once, like Cat Power, I wanted to be the greatest. Now, I just have occasional delusions of adequacy. I know that, as the old hymn says, god's not finished with me yet, but I have occasionally been told, "don't go changing." I might have been born yesterday, but I stayed up all night.

Part of what determines attraction is how someone walks and talks, right? Well, you can see me walk and talk, and be generally foolish, here.
What I’m doing with my life
Working on getting free.

For work, I write about art. For fun, I meet dogs in the street, I laff it up with my friends, and I read a lot. Without, I hope, being excessively judgy or pedantic, I champion proper grammar and usage, but I find abbrevs hilair (except "veggies," which I loathe). I'm working on my capacity to be a friend among friends and a worker among workers, and to truly connect with people. In short: GTL.
I’m really good at
Making people laugh. And you know what they say about laughing. It's like jogging, but on the inside.
The first things people usually notice about me
The ski mask. The handgun.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Jeffrey Eugenides, Ta-Nehisi Coates, Ben Lerner, Jonathan Franzen, Chris Ware, Marilynne Robinson, David Foster Wallace, Jonathan Lethem, the Tao Te Ching, The Road, the New Yorker Magazine. (Lots of white dudes, I realize.)

The Big Short, The Hurt Locker, The White Ribbon, The Lives Of Others, The Big Lebowski, The Royal Tenenbaums, The Matrix, The Diving Bell And The Butterfly, The Usual Suspects, The Future Is Unwritten, L'avventura, La Jetée.

As for teevee, I don't watch much outside of the Daily Show. No teevee dramas, thanks, just not my drug, please don't, no, not even the one you like.

Das Racist, Spoon, The Band, Cat Power, Liz Phair, Foxy Shazam, Gang Of Four, Interpol, Miles Davis, Iron And Wine, Bon Iver, Guided By Voices, Kanye West, Radiohead, Steely Dan, The Smiths, Rocket From The Crypt, Vampire Weekend, some Jay-Z, Sloan, Don Caballero, Chinese Classical Music, Regular Old Classical Music.

I can rarely say no to sushi.
The six things I could never do without
Modern medicine and technology.
A good dictionary.
My eyeglasses.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
...who is going to play me in the movie.
On a typical Friday night I am the opera with your mama and your papa just for fun, like, "Where you at, man?" "I'm with your family, dawg."
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I enjoy certain music and movies that I am not sure I would want the world to know I like. Maybe what I shouldn't want to admit is that rather than just being comfortable liking what I like, I have guilty pleasures. And that I care whether others think I'm cool. I will stand by Steely Dan forever, though, and I don't care who knows about it.

And, I really wish I'd made my username nothing_personalz.
You should message me if
You can stop me before it comes to this.

You have a delightfully devious sense of fun. You are warm and giving. You rock the house that rocks the party that rocks the house.
