If you like what you see, then read on.

I'm a real up-to-sky kind of guy.
I'm crazy about film, literature, music, theatre, art, and architecture, amongst other things.
I enjoy people who enjoy ideas.
I smile and laugh a lot.
I have a very dry wit.
I would never belong to any club that would have me as a member.
If you let me, I'll charm your pants off. And not just your pants.
What I’m doing with my life
Filmmaker. Tutor. Professor.
I’m really good at
I don't know karate, but I know ka-razy.

Owning the dance floor. This recently includes salsa dancing.

I play a few instruments and I sing.
The first things people usually notice about me
My aura. Blinding, hard to miss.

Apparently, I am familiar even though you've never met me. (I'm a time traveler.)
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Always reading something. Recent winners as of late: Debt, the first 5000 years (currently reading), The Day of the Owl, A Time to Keep Silence, The Wisdom of Insecurity, The Body Electric: Electromagnetism & the Foundation of Life. By now, have read most of the classics so love to be surprised by something out of left-field.

Movies: Rules of the Game, Mouchette, Blowup, Chinatown, Rosemary's Baby, Harold & Maude, Cleo from 5 to 7, Stalker, Tokyo Story, the 7-Up series, Groundhog Day, Ordinary People, Yi Yi, Touch of Evil, Don't Look Now, the Isle of Flowers, Scenes from a Marriage, The Green Ray, Love & Death, The Great Muppet Caper. I know, I know, esoteric. But trust me, at least one of these titles you haven't seen is your future favorite film of all-time.

TV: The Wire, Breaking Bad, Twin Peaks, Arrested Development & Bojack Horsemen. Don't watch too much TV though.

Music: Cocteau Twins, Elliott Smith, Stevie Wonder, Arthur Russell, Schubert, Jobim, David Bowie, Bill Evans, Fela Kuti, The Smiths, The Band, Joni Mitchell, Neutral Milk Hotel, Os Mutantes, Jacques Brel, Pixies, Ratatat, Radiohead, Anita O'Day, James Brown, Tortoise, Wire, Beethoven, Big Star, Jorge Ben, Jai Paul, Richard & Linda Thompson, Father John Misty.

Your taste is important to me.
The six things I could never do without
Love and art. Friends and family. Dreams.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Being and Time.

And Movies.
On a typical Friday night I am
Forging in the smithy of my soul the uncreated conscience of my race.

Or watching a film. Or dancing.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Maybe it's my imagination, but food seemed to taste better when I was a kid. Also, food would sing and dance and play musical instruments, but that could also have been my imagination.
You should message me if
I'm just looking for the usual things: love, passion, fun, laughter, excitement, companionship. But, because life is short, here are a few more details:

You laugh all the time.
You're kind and generous.
You have good, broad taste in both audio and visual.
You want to actually DO things rather than just hang out.
You have a healthy sex drive.
You can start conversations, not just continue them.
You're pretty darn smart. And curious.
You prefer not to automatically live by the conventions society has
presented you but rather to evaluate them based on their
usefulness.
You can expertly operate in all levels of society but feel most
comfortable among artists/intellectuals.
You want the same in me and you find me attractive!

You can message me but I don't respond very often. Super picky. Won't write to anyone with only one photo or an empty profile.
