My self-summary
Shopping for people is odd, isn't it? Well, let me trot out my version of the blue-light special:

I'm a mass of contradictions, like most interesting people. I search for something called "home" while in a constant state of wanderlust. I am close to my family and friends yet prefer to live alone. I'm fairly kinky yet I want something with depth.

Whoops, I'm supposed to be selling myself here, right?

Okay, let's trot out the buzzwords: Intuitive, sharp wit, bathe daily, solvent, sane, and I never listen to jazz fusion.
What I’m doing with my life
Who are you, my mother?

Oh, yes, what am I doing with my life. At 20 I was on my way towards a career in Journalism (considering the state of the business I'm glad that didn't take). Now I work with books and photographs.

Now I'm just pondering writing the Great American Novel. No, it's not a blog. Call me old-fashioned, with a blissful ignorance of the realities of the publishing industry.
I’m really good at
faux self-effacement, banter, digital stimulation, finding that charming bistro, mix 8-tracks, recalling the names of obscure seventies films, eye contact, grilled cheese, getting your jokes, cuddling, macramé.

Wait, that's a lost skill. I did once make a fine plant holder/dust gatherer.
The first things people usually notice about me
The voice.

It usually makes people think I must be 6'2". I'm not 6'2".
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Let's try alternating them for awhile, and I'll avoid writing too much in an attempt to impress you. We both know it's about much more than a mutual love of The Simpsons and runny French cheeses, though that's a good start.

The Stories of John Cheever, La Dolce Vita, Nick Drake, Kumamoto oysters, The World's Most Dangerous Places, Mulholland Drive, Ramones, etouffee, Audubon's Birds of America, Who's Afraid of Virginia Wolff, Eric Satie, fresh cherry gelato from Giolitti in Rome, Nine and a Half Weeks (yes, it's a book, and it's as great as the film is cheesy and mediocre), Jules and Jim, Neko Case, salad (yes, salad!) Luc Sante's Lowlife, Rosemary's Baby, Velvet Underground, ravioli with fresh cheese and sage.

Cindy Sherman, Weegee, Al Green, The Clash, pastrami.
Six things I could never do without
This is one of those problematic questions. How do you equate sex and lip balm? Good books and 8 hours of restful sleep? Your family and Diet Coke? (no, I'm not addicted to Diet Coke, but you might be)

This is a silly question. Let's let the Rolling Stones answer it about as well as anyone could:

"Love and Hope and Sex and Dreams".
I spend a lot of time thinking about
The big questions and the small ones. Better yet, I'll talk about them in depth with you, rather than just dwell on trivialities.
On a typical Friday night I am
I am not:

1. Slamming back PBRs at a bar where I can't hear what you're saying.

2. Complaining about my job and my week to a casual acquaintance

3 Reorganizing my spice rack.

I might be:

1. Sharing dinner with friends.

2. Watching surrealist films from the Thirties in the back room of a film warehouse in the Mission .

3. Meeting you for an evening of slap and tickle and sushi.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Hmmm. I've got an extra vertebrae? I've got a baby tooth?

No, you want the real dirt. Well, then you'd better get to know me. No one wants to meet a man too free and easy with his neuroses. Or his proclivities,
You should message me if
Hell, I'm not going to put up a list of hoops you need to jump through. Let's get a look at you!
The two of us
