My self-summary
I'm a journalist, at least for now. But the blogosphere seems to have come to a consensus that we're going the way of the Dodo, so I'm trying to get all the journalisting in that I can journalist until there's no journalisting left to do. Um, what else? I can tell you why Miller Lite is a crappy beer, beyond, ya know, the obvious. Along with its bottom-feeding, domestic lager-y counterparts. I'm definitely a beer geek, which I hope can be differentiated from a beer snob. I like good food and can cook a little if Alton Brown tells me how. I also enjoy abruptly cutting off in mid .......

I am curious, clothed, and curmudgeonly
What I’m doing with my life
Examining my purpose in the cosmos. And eating Chee-Tos.
I’m really good at
Writing (allegedly), figuring out random stuff to do, not texting my friends, which drives them crazy, getting outside, debating, golf (relatively speaking, to most idiots who play), finding good places to eat/drink, and I'm not bad at cooking, though I definitely wouldn't go with "really good." Wouldn't want to raise expectations too much.
The first things people usually notice about me
You should probably ask these mysterious "people" about that.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I'm notoriously poor at creating time to read books, which probably makes me a truly bad person.

Movies: Casablanca, Rear Window, Eternal Sunshine, Double Indemnity, Godfather, Fight Club, Ocean's Eleven, North By Northwest, To Have and Have Not, The Big Sleep, Pulp Fiction, Big Lebowski, Fargo, Fletch, Pi, 39 Steps, Magnolia, Office Space, etc., etc., etc.

Food: Isn't this the type of question they ask you in third grade, and everybody draws a slice of pepperoni pizza on a piece of colored construction paper? Wait ... you got any construction paper? I guess my answer is I'll try anything once. And then I'll probably try it one more time. Don't like ketchup or mayo. Pickles are growing on me.

Music: Ryan Adams, Wilco, The Decemberists, Drive-By Truckers, Roger Clyne & the Peacemakers, Arcade Fire, Nirvana, Smashing Pumpkins, R.E.M., Aimee Mann, Radiohead, Arctic Monkeys, Avett Brothers, The Beatles, Bob Dylan, Beck, The Clash, The Ramones, Fiona Apple, Neutral Milk Hotel, Rilo Kiley, The Long Winters, Scott Miller, The National, Neko Case, Old 97's, Phoenix, Superdrag, Van Morrison, The White Stripes
Six things I could never do without
Computer, car (at least, not here), functioning lungs, photosynthesis, ozone layer, tectonic plates.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
What to write in this spot.
On a typical Friday night I am
Lately, I've been joining packs of other beer geeks at The Fred Bar (if you don't know where this is and you have any interest in beer, you must go ... but you have to ring a buzzer to get in; I'm not making that up). Oh, or the Brickstore. It's my favorite place on Earth. Other than my comfortable bed. OK, maybe even including my comfortable bed. Yes, good beer is that good. Miller Lite isn't worth even opening my eyes.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Puppies are cute.
You should message me if
... if ... well, why wouldn't you? I mean, honestly. I've got an octopus on my head. When are you gonna see that again? Once in a lifetime, I tell ya. If you don't, you'll regret it. Maybe not today. Maybe not tomorrow. But one day soon, and for the rest of your life. Yes, I sometimes quote Bogey. I'm unashamed.
The two of us
