Biographical Information

Location: Minneapolis

Gender: male

Occupation: Preoccupied

Birthdate: November 1, 1946 (68 years old)

Interests: Music, movies, books, food, dogs, politics, people (they're kind of required for the rest of it).

Biography: Bear type old gay guy. The fires of the heart cool as we head towards the October, November or December of our lives.

I am no longer working and I am much happier than I have been in years. I miss very little of the non-profit sector I labored in for 40 years. Now I can be the highly influential, much-sought-after intellectual I always wanted to be -- provided I think of a highly influential much-sought-after idea. Ah well, one of the tasks of old age is recognizing that some things one wanted are not going to happen and other things one didn't want are.

On many days I feel like a young man (other days, not so much) and on most days I prefer to think of myself as at least a fairly radical person.

  • BitterCrank [Aug 17, 2015 - 12:18 PM]: BBC reports that it was very bad.
  • BitterCrank [Aug 14, 2015 - 10:55 PM]: Harmonic Convergence: In the Guardian yesterday a story about a woman who liked Proust. ""It's not Remembrance Of Things Past. The right translations is "In Search of Lost Time." a picky commenter said." I was also reading a space opera by John Scalzi.
  • BitterCrank [Aug 14, 2015 - 10:48 PM]: Scalzi's book contained the same exchange about Proust -- "It's not Remembrance Of Things Past. The right translations is "In Search of Lost Time." she said. The same reference to Proust in 2 unrelated places in one day. I am totally verklempt.
