I'm a 35 year old Indiana guy who's pretty normal in most definitions of the word. I'm just looking for some cool people here to make friends with...if anything comes from that, awesome! If not, it's cool too...the more friends I can make the better! :)
I am also asexual, so sex means absolutely nothing to me, I have more important things to do, haha. :) I have nothing against any other orientation though, everyone is cool with me!
Puppeteer/Muppets/Sesame Street creator Jim Henson is my idol and a person who I feel embodied everything that is good about humanity. I miss him lots. Walt Disney is also very high on my list of people I admire. I also think actors Bruce Campbell, Christian Bale, Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Hugh Laurie are super awesome.
I really enjoy musical theater, surprisingly enough...hey, I can appreciate great singing!
I also enjoy dressing up for comic conventions, and doing various charity events in costume as various characters...the most rewarding thing ever is seeing the smiles on kids' faces when they see some of their favorite characters talking to and interacting with them.
Here is an interview I recently did explaining why I do what I do:
I love going to the beach when the weather permits (being that this is Indiana, that's about...oh...2 months out of the year), sitting there and staring out over the water. Anything having to do with nature and being outside (unless it has to do with shooting animals) is cool with me.
I really love animation; Disney, Don Bluth, Pixar and everything in between. Voice over actors (which it is my dream to be one day) have my admiration and respect.
Music is a major part of my life. It has gotten me through many a rough patch in my life, and I hope to one day soon get back into playing music. I really want to be a drummer/percussionist of some sort.
My favorite band of all time is Alice in Chains, followed by the Aquabats, Faith No More (huge Mike Patton fan...the guy is a rock god), Barenaked Ladies, Gotye and Pink Floyd. I'm a big Mumford and Sons, Of Monsters and Men, Ween, Weird Al Yankovic, Tim Blane, Dawes, Glen Phillips, Pink Floyd and Edwin McCain fan as well. Frank Sinatra and Dean Martin are also very high on my list...they are the epitome of cool.
I have a full-time job as a stocker in the produce department of a local grocery store. Been at the same company for 15 years...it's been my only place of employment. It's a job and it pays the bills, that's all I can really say about that.
British comedies, more specifically Monty Python, Red Dwarf, Mr Bean, and the comedian Eddie Izzard, are a pretty big obsession of mine, and they've done a lot to influence my particular dry yet off-the-wall and silly sense of humor. If you like British humor, that goes a long way in my book!
I have a younger brother and an older sister, as well as a kittycat (Nick Furry. Yup, I'm a nerd.), and a canine (Indy).
I'm definitely an animal person...as well as a pescatarian (I don't eat beef, chicken or turkey, but I do eat fish.) But I don't push my beliefs on those around me....if you want to eat meat, be my guest. :)
Well, I dunno what else to say really...
Oh yeah, I'm a huge sports fan...in football, it's the Colts, and in the NBA it's the Pacers. I would say baseball too, but I like the Astros so I am very ashamed of that fact. :( Haha.
Oh and on a final note, if you are able to complete the following movie quote sequence, then you automatically win my respect...
"You remind me of the babe..."
Have a great day! ^_^
