My self-summary
I like making up funny stuff to do in front of people.
What I’m doing with my life
Gainfully employed as a street beggar on the high line, might be the best day job out there.
I’m really good at
making objects defy the laws of physics, being ridiculous, making up words, bad english accents, chess, making soup
The first things people usually notice about me
Everyone always tells me I look like someone they know, I don't know if this is a compliment or not.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Off the top of my head, books:
Extension du domaine de la lutte, Michel Houellebecq
The Confidence Man, Herman Melville
Terry Pratchett
If on a Winter's Night a Traveler, Italo Calvino
Neal Stephenson
house of leaves
zen: the doctrine of no mind, suzuki
the phantom tollbooth
the master and margarita

Movies:
Spaceballs, Time Bandits, the raid, la haine, l'aventure c'est l'aventure, Rhumba, Ghost Dog: Way of the Samurai, The Princess Bride, Sean of the Dead, old kung-fu, Groundhog Day, The Meaning of Life, The Life Aquatic, basically any documentary

Shows
democracy now, home movies, the venture brothers

music:
lots of stuff, underground hip hop, some weird electronic stuff (love my clicks and clacks and beeps and boops), 1960's ethiopian jazz, 70's rock from thailand and laos, gamelan, early animal collective, lucky dragons, the books, honey is cool, okkervil river, son house, born ruffians, j-dilla, secret mommy, colleen, minus story, javelin, nosaj thing, metronomy
The six things I could never do without
juggling
thrift stores
headphones
stretching
home made veggie juice
lemon water
I spend a lot of time thinking about
the performer's role as public servant.
On a typical Friday night I am
probably going to see a show or going to bed early because saturday's a big day.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
i have weird chicken pinkie toenails
You should message me if
the inspiration strikes you.
