A couple things up front:
If you'd like to go out and have fun, I'm game right away. I like to get to know people by doing things with them, not by email. I don't think email is fun.
I respond frequently--because I'm looking for interesting people who want to do interesting things. You know, like OKC says, activity partners. I'm looking for a partner in crime on some memorable misadventures.
OK. Summary. Let's do this. This is happening:
I'm a reasonably smart regular guy. I have a dry sense of humor and a refined taste for good living, but I like bumming around too.
I'm stuck in the suburbs in a house upside down on the mortgage. I'm a native Washingtonian, and most of my friends live in the city. So I identify here as living in Washington. (I'm saying this here because to some people it matters. A lot.)
I've just released a jazz big band album of American songbook classics and contemporary songs in the Rat Pack style. I'm a fan of 1960s music and fashion. You can find it on iTunes, Amazon and Google Play. I hope you do. Here, let me help a little:
I'm an actor and musician. I cover my mortgage by doing public relations (on my own -- I used to have an old dog for company, but he split with the ex. What can I tell you? He really likes the ladies.)
If you've read A Confederacy of Dunces or The Secret History we might have enough in common to have lunch with no awkward silences.
I should probably admit that I have a fascination for Craig T. Nelson that borders on the unexplainable, even to me--but I hate his politics. I have CD collections of Garrison Keillor's Lake Wobegon monologues to help me sleep. That guy's voice is like warm honey on velvet.
I say "totally," "awesome" and "dude" without irony. I'm pretty sure I've said "Totally awesome, dude." That's how I roll (I say that one with irony.).
As the saying goes, I'll try anything at least once: parachute jumping, white water rafting, parasailing, bungee jumping. On the other hand, I'm not a huge party fan, and I'd rather hang out with a few people (or, preferably, one) instead of a massive crowd. A nearly-empty bar is one of my favorite places to be.
