Hey ksmarker, I am in support of your move, for whatever that's worth to the folks showing up here to post. I both get why you are interested and why you moved the discussion here. Eventually another story as relevant or interesting as the fact that the NY Times wrote a story about this dude will show up, and then yes, it will be good not to drag it into other threads.

i’m last and when he gets to me he shakes my hand and i say “it’s great to meet you!!” and he says “what do you do?”

and i am looking barack obama in the eye and i say, “i write a blog about a popular music website!”

and he looks at me quizzically for a second, i guess he was sort of piecing it together, and he goes, “oh, which website?”

and i say, “it’s called pitchfork. it’s based in chicago! are you familiar with it?”

and he says, “no, but i’ll have to look into it!”

I think there's probably a degree of Aspergers at work with this kid. I mean...

People with Asperger syndrome often display behavior, interests, and activities that are restricted and repetitive and are sometimes abnormally intense or focused. They may stick to inflexible routines, move in stereotyped and repetitive ways, or preoccupy themselves with parts of objects.

Pursuit of specific and narrow areas of interest is one of the most striking features of AS. Individuals with AS may collect volumes of detailed information on a relatively narrow topic such as weather data or star names, without necessarily having genuine understanding of the broader topic.

I lose focus on the tour and accidentally start to wonder whether I've made it through twenty-one years of life without ever having formed a genuine connection with another person, and if conversation is so difficult for everyone, and if there might be a medication I could take, that would actually work, that would make it easier to interact with people.

I didn't know he had a novel out. From the Amazon blurb:

David is a freshly minted NYU grad who’s working a not-quite-entry-level job, falling in love, and telling his parents he’s studying for the LSAT. He starts a Tumblr blog, typing out posts on his BlackBerry under his desk—a blog that becomes wildly popular and brings him to the attention of major media (The New York Times) as well as the White House. But his outward fame doesn’t quell his confusion about the world and his direction in it.

I don't know if she'd remember me because she meets thousands of people, and I don't want her to not remember me, but I don't want to introduce myself as if we've never met before because then she might think I am doing that thing where you knowingly introduce yourself to someone you've already met and pretend you don't remember them to show them that they're not important to you and consequently you are cooler than they are. But Tavi was really friendly at Pitchfork, and also, she is 15.

I read a few pages of the book online and it was all about going to readings and telling people he writes a blog and being intimidated by people who write for Slate and how people make eye contact with him and smoke cigarettes near him.

this is weird to me because i would read PRR in college when dude was my age. i was also aware of tavi at that time, who was described to me as a child prodigy.

Treeship, Tuesday, 30 September 2014 11:33 (3 weeks ago) Permalink

i read his book, its not bad, hes tao lin but hanging out w/ more boring ppl if that's possible. it's obv a quick read and is relatable. the best part is like 3 pages long where he recounts applying for a job w/ an investment bank (only b/c he finds a woman who works there's cell phone in a cab), doesn't hear back for two and a half weeks, emails and tells her off and sez her company + their business ruined the economy, etc, and she responds showing him an email to HR that they were abt to hire him. it is the anecdote of a generation, and well told regardless of if it even happened

dating tavi would prob be v good for him like emotionally & socially cuz she seems well-adjusted and really healthy in those respects
