My self-summary
Still working on figuring out the best way to summarize who I am. For now, I'll let the critical details below speak for themselves.
What I’m doing with my life
Playing/discovering music. Getting outside. Finding my way into cycling. Teaching myself new recipes. And trying to strike that balance.
I’m really good at
Being reasonable. Picking up on details.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I'm putting music first because it's pretty important (to me). Recent listens include Sturgill Simpson, Harry Nilsson, David Bowie, Father John Misty, Tears for Fears, Wilco, The Antlers, Julia Holter, Pink Floyd, The Beatles, Phil Collins, Fleetwood Mac, The Eagles, Alabama Shakes, Sufjan Stevens, Van Morrison, The Band, Bobby Charles, and Supertramp.

I also have a healthy appreciation for one-hit wonder pop songs from the 70s and 80s.

Radio - I love Radiolab, KEXP's podcasts, and NPR's Tiny Desk Concert series.

Books/words - I have way too many books accumulating on my night stand. Trying to finish Les Miserables. Wish me luck.

Comedians - Mike Birbiglia, Kristen Wiig, Louis C.K., Andy Kaufman, Groucho, Aziz Ansari, Woody Allen, Gary Gulman, Jackie Mason, Bill Hicks, David Cross. Also, Mel Brooks' 2000 Year-Old Man routine is brilliant.

Movies - Anything by Stanley Kubrick or the Coen Brothers. I'm generally a big fan of 70s movies (Chinatown, Taxi Driver, Dog Day Afternoon), but am always looking for new suggestions.

Food - I like just about everything. Oh, and after years spent avoiding, I am really into eggplant these days. Like, for serious.
The six things I could never do without
Family. Friends. Music. A sense of history. Curiosity. Comedy.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Sound & Vision.
On a typical Friday night I am
"There is no typical Friday night."
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
C'mon, OKC, I've already spilled my guts all over the internet. Give me some space!
You should message me if
-are intellectually curious
-love music (huge plus if you can play the pedal steel guitar . . . swoon)
-can dig it
-have a good heart
-are appropriately sarcastic
-can deliver the spontaneous high-five
-ever wondered why the flying cars or hoverboards aren't here by now
-keep in touch with old friends
-are patient and not quick to judge
-value feeling connected to the past
-are cut from a wide cloth
-wish the East Coast had some real mountains
-find PBS somewhat reassuring
-would like to share your working theory of what The Shining is really about

That'll do for now.
