My self-summary
I guess I've got the cute artsy nerd thing going for me. I admit, I love pretentious art theory, but I'm also a (not so) secret Star Trek and Law & Order geek. I own all of Six Feet Under, Deadwood, Carnivale, Coupling (UK), and Arrested Development. The Smashing Pumpkins has been my favorite band since I was 11. I'm into drawing, painting, reading, and calling things "postmodern".

I am intellectually artsy, blithely elitist, and reluctantly adorable
What I’m doing with my life
Now that I've finished my BA in Art History and German at Columbia University, I've moved to Philadelphia for graduate school (PhD in Art History), where I plan to focus on the ways in which 18th and 19th century German aesthetic theory reverberates and is altered in the 20th century, particularly the postwar years...Well, it sounds sexy to me anyway. ;-)
I’m really good at
drawing, painting, kink, writing term papers, listening, affection, wholly random intelligent conversation
The first things people usually notice about me
That I'm Asian. I'm actually not on the inside, what with the whole being raised by a white military family thing. It's kinda like false advertising, really, since I am not at all interested in the culture at all...beyond its food anyway.

Other than that, you'll probably notice my height (or lack thereof), my smile, and my eyes.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
a) Small World, Lolita, American Gods, The Brothers Karamazov, The Wind-Up Bird Chronicle, M. Butterfly, German aesthetic theory anything (but especially: Sedlmayr, Kant, Adorno, Benjamin, Lessing, Schele, Husserl, Nietzsche, Riegl)

b) The original Star Wars Trilogy, Secretary, The Rocky Horror Picture Show, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, Sex Lies and Videotape, Blade Runner, Nightmare Before Christmas, The Dreamers, Hedwig and the Angry Inch, The Lives of Others, Shortbus...TV: Six Feet Under, Daily Show/Colbert Report, Dexter, Deadwood, Weeds, Star Trek: DS9, Law&Order, Carnivale, Arrested Development, Peep Show, Big Love, The Wire

c) The Smashing Pumpkins, Led Zeppelin, Dresden Dolls, The Who, A Perfect Circle, The Faint, Spoon, The Swell Season, The Cure, Depeche Mode, Flaming Lips, The National, Leonard Cohen

d) sushi, thai, southern
On a typical Friday night I am
Who the hell knows, now that I've just moved to a new city where I don't know anyone...maybe hanging out with you?
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I have a small blue birthmark on my ass. Yes, I know it's called a Mongolian spot, and I have in fact been researching/writing on the postcolonialist fetishism structuring the "asian[american]" porn genre. (Work and play combined!)
You should message me if
you're looking for a smart, chill girl to hang out with. In general I'm pretty thoughtful and down to earth, but I've also got a strong propensity for random silliness.
The two of us
