In the Beltway of Madness

Dispatches from Washington DC, Where Reason Goes To Die

21 January 1978
Me in a paragraph or two. Right. Well, I study philosophy on the graduate level, and I minored in history, so of course those are two subjects that rarely ever tire me. A lot of my professional interests are tied up with ethics, and with philosophy of law and philosophy of art. On the latter, I've been getting more interested in art history, and a few movements and artists mentioned in the my interests list below. I'm also sort of obsessed with music, to occasionally (but only occasionally) absurd, High Fidelity levels. And I've been getting into film theory, and weird, obscure b-movies, silent films, and other classic movies. For some reason, horror, fantasy and sci-fi tend to be my favorite genres.

Despite not actually owning much technology, I've had a growing interest in it, particularly in computers and multi-media. And I don't get to do it terribly often, but I love downhill skiing and hiking.
