I think you’ll have fun getting to know this DC-based musician, composer, actor, teacher and social media pro.
McCool. Yes, that is his real last name. It’s either a lot to live up to, or a great way to describe Jason. You be the judge.
OneChicklette: Your favorite qualities in a love interest
@coolmcjazz: I subscribe to the BBC: Brains. Beauty. Confidence. (I actually just made that up – can it become a thing?)
OneChicklette: Your chief characteristic (one word)
OneChicklette: What you appreciate most in your friends
@coolmcjazz: Whimsy. Shared adventures past and future. The desire to converse passionately about politics, music, art, religion, and life. Goodness.
OneChicklette: Your idea of happiness
@coolmcjazz: Producing something worthwhile. Quality time with family and friends. Boston. European travel. Mahler. Coltrane. Van Morrison on vinyl. Interesting booze.
OneChicklette: Your idea of misery
@coolmcjazz: Waking up hungover trapped in an elevator playing smooth jazz during a Republican presidential administration.
OneChicklette: Your favorite fictional character
@coolmcjazz: Ignatius J. Reilly, A Confederacy of Dunces
OneChicklette: Your favorite thing to eat, and also to drink
@coolmcjazz: So many more interesting options, but great pizza is a comfort. Fresh roasted coffee or French farmhouse ales.
OneChicklette: Five tangible things you can’t live without
@coolmcjazz: Records. An old piano. A companion. My high school yearbook. Lungs.
OneChicklette: What’s the number one item on your bucket list? (question via @SaraLang)
@coolmcjazz: I don’t have a bucket list. Perhaps I should rethink that? (If I did: writing an original musical that makes it to Broadway.)
@OneChicklette: Who do you know via social media that you’re dying to meet in real life? (this question came via @floridagirlindc)
@coolmcjazz: Maybe @common_squirrel, but I bet @SaraLang and @1chicklette would be better conversationalists.
@OneChicklette: What is your most under appreciated tweet? (this question came via @MikeKelton)
@coolmcjazz: Being enthusiastic about a “100th Anniv of the Rite of Spring premiere” party would give you, hypothetically, about a billiondy nerd points.
OneChicklette: A question I should ask the next participant
@coolmcjazz: What moves you, and how does your awareness of that affect your life?
OneChicklette: Random shout out (can be a person, your business, a web site, a favorite product or brand…anything)
@coolmcjazz: To my lovely ladyfriend and Fenway, the dog of my childhood dreams. And to my inspiring #DCarts community! Thanks @onechicklette!
