How about we… take the East River Ferry from Midtown to Governor's Island, with possible stops in Long Island City (PS1) and DUMBO (Brooklyn Bridge Park).
How about we… Celebrate Brooklyn! by going to the free Laura Marling/Michael Kiwanuka show next month?
How about we… on a Sunday afternoon, head up to Sugar Hill to catch some amazing jazz at the wonderful Marjorie Eliot's place?

An awesome place I've visited:
Most recently: Dalsland, Sweden

Overall probably "Top Gun" (We had that on VHS and me and my little brother used to watch it up to two, possibly three times a day when we were kids.) Between age 18 and today: Jim Jarmusch's "Night on Earth"
My life history in 5 sentences or fewer:
Born and raised in a small village in the Middle of Nowhere, Germany. College in Bonn, Germany, and Madison, WI. Degree in English Lit. Boring office job, looking for something else. In love with music and NYC (gonna be in Brooklyn for part of the summer).
My first concert / My dream concert:
Aerosmith circa 1997 / Bruce Springsteen & the E Street Band circa 1975
Obscure knowledge I possess:
Makes me realize how relatively uninteresting I obviously am... I know stuff like why there's a leap year and why it's skipped every 100 years. Not sure that qualifies as "obscure" though.
For me, a first date no-no is:

a tiny bit taller
