My self-summary
"It is commonplace among writers to need extreme arousal. For instance, Martin Buber. . ."
What I’m doing with my life
Teaching a freshman college writing course and playing with kids at an afterschool program. Searching out a permanent high school English/History teaching gig.
I’m really good at
I can juggle, but only basic, mostly round stuff.
The first things people usually notice about me
I can seem rather aloof by first impressions, so probably that I seem quiet. I open up as I gain my bearings with new folk though.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Mostly classics. Franz Kafka, Fyodor Dostoevsky, William Faulkner, Mark Twain, Vladimir Nabokov, Kurt Vonnegut, Thomas Pynchon, Stanislaw Lem, David Foster Wallace, assorted poetry, etc.

2001: A Space Odyssey
Dr. Strangelove
City of God
nature documentaries
Exit Through the Gift Shop
Groundhog Day

Music: Andrew Bird, Beck, Beirut, Woody and Arlo Guthrie, Deerhoof, etc. I like bluesy folk as well as experimental. I don't do hip hop often, but I can dig it once in a while. I recently purchased a turntable, so I'm working on building up a collection of records.
The six things I could never do without
Books and folks with whom to discuss them. My computer/phone for my daily tech indulgences.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
"All beauty, resonance, integrity,
Exist by deprivation or logic
Of strange position." -- John Ashbery

"And the tranquil hills, & gin, look like a drag 
and somehow a dog 
has taken itself & its tail considerably away 
into the mountains or sea or sky, leaving 
behind: me, wag." -- John Berryman

"Think of what you feel
Secretly, and how music has imitated that.
Make a moue." -- Kenneth Koch
On a typical Friday night I am
Out and about in the glistening Billings social scene or relaxing at home or with friends.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I eat adult gummy vitamins because I can't stomach the ordinary kind. (Ridiculous masculinity isn't my game)
You should message me if
Just do it!
