My self-summary
I would give myself a B+, which is much worse than it sounds because I am a college professor and notoriously easy grader. So maybe I can argue it up to an A-. I have absolutely no interest in team sports. I like little more than appreciating people for being people.
What I’m doing with my life
Teaching, learning. I fought the NNJ mafia recently, and, knock on wood, won. Parenting. Still making movies.
I’m really good at
cooking. repairing things. teaching. writing. After an illness several years ago I picked up the ability to program computers in many different languages. I am proficient in javascript, java, perl, c, c++, html, Visual Basic, python, REXX and derivitives. It is a tad Rain Man for a guy who went to art school.
The first things people usually notice about me
Voice. Then hair. Then physical intimidation-ess. Intelligence. All in that order, I think.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Book = Cat's Cradle
Movie = Full Metal Jacket
Show = Broad City (current) The Wire (past)
Music=P J Harvey
Food=My mother's lasagna

These are strictly my choices, and I would not expect anyone to have to agree. Or even like the choices. If you are curious why I picked one, feel free to ask me about it.
The six things I could never do without
Internet Connection, Coke Zero, Teaching, Learning, Music
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Maybe monotheism isn't an improvement over polytheism? At least with multiple gods if someone is following a slightly different one you can say "Hey, great, stick them on the list." Monotheists have to say "You are WRONG, we are already following the O.T.G" (one true god) and start killing one another over it. Because if there is one thing god cannot stand it is hypocrisy. At least the monotheists agree on that.

Joining ISIS is a really bad fuck you. By the time you finally annoy the intended people, you could be dead or in prison. Get an earring, buy a motorcycle, become a scientologist instead.

1-877-KARS-4-KIDS is a very questionable business model. Really the authorities should look into it.

The crossing guard system of getting kids to school seems highly inefficient. Also appears to depend on a constant supply of senior citizens.

Why would god care about what you wear? Why do those who think so assume god's fashion sense stopped sometime in the mid 19th century? Wouldn't the Hasidim unloading heavy boxes at B&H on 34th street in August be more comfortable wearing tshirts?

Religion is theater.

Who sells missiles to Hamas in the Gaza strip? Regardless of the politics of the situation, these people live in an area the size of Queens surrounded on all sides by a huge wall and an enemy with one of the most effective militaries in the world. Who could possibly think it is a good idea to lob small unguided missiles onto the enemy from there? Why not just sell big targets that say "Fuck You" in Hebrew on them? It would be cheaper and just as effective.

Why would a Doomsday Prepper, who is so afraid of his government surrounding his compound, that he builds a tunnel from a secret room in his basement to an escape vehicle waiting in a shed, not be smart enough to realize broadcasting himself doing that from a Home Depot on the National Geographic network eliminates any advantages of the 'secret' part?

If Channing Tatum, playing a candidate to become a secret service agent, answers the question "Why do you want this job?" with "Because I think protecting the PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES is THE MOST IMPORTANT JOB IN THE WORLD", shouldn't he be automatically disqualified from it?

Grand Unified theory, conservatives, if compassion is the opposite of anger.

I recently discovered what love is: The Propensity to Nurture. Please share.
On a typical Friday night I am
Falling asleep with my kids.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
It is only referred to as a sex act once the authorities are involved.

The Big Lebowski: loosely based on my life.
You should message me if
You have suggestions or constructive criticism for me. If you think Organ Donation Awareness day sounds like a celebration of vivisection.
