My self-summary
I like to work and work out. My workouts consist of weight lifting, walking and, in good weather, bicycle riding. I read alot and follow current events, trends, technology, culture etc... I do trade work, which is also good for the body. This picture was taken April 27 2011.
What I’m doing with my life
Among other things, trying to write an interesting and appealing description of myself on OKC.
I’m really good at
Getting out of my own way.
The first things people usually notice about me
I have no idea. They haven't told me.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Book: Isaac Asimov's Chronology of the world,
Movies: Seven Samurai. The Searchers, The Godfather, Vertigo,
Sorcerer(the wages of fear), Dr. Strangelove and to let you know I do have a sense of humor, Animal House.
Shows: A Chorus Line

Music: Okay here is where I really have something to say. Growing up music was always with me, starting in the 60's with the Beatles, through the mid 90's. Then, for some reason, I stopped listening to music. In 2008, something caused me to get back into music in a big way. What happened ? Well first a friend took me to FYE to burn a cd. So I'm going through the catalogue trying to pack as much onto the cd as possible in the same genre, and I couldn't fill it out. So then I started looking, and searching, and, key point, remembering music and artists. And the key moment came when I was driving around with the same friend and this song came on the radio. A song from the 80's that I remembered. An obscure song, but a great song. Kind of a freestyle, dance song with a beat. I didn't know the name of the song or the artist. I didn't even know the words. So I couldn't search lyrics. So I searched and searched and searched until finally after months of searching I found it at digitaldreamdoor/freestyle #69
Yo Little Brother by Nolan Thomas. Ever heard it ? I'm listening to it as I write this. And since then I have collected what I think are the best songs of all time. And so for perspective on my eclectic musical taste here is a link to the Rolling Stone Magazine list of the 500 best songs of all time(in their opinion):

And here are the songs that are on their list and on mine:
#24 People Get Ready - The Impressions
#48 All Along The Watchtower - Jimi Hendrix
#50 The Tracks Of My Tears - Smokey Robinson
#89 California Dreamin' - The Mamas & The Papas
#91 Suspicious Minds - Elvis Presley
#103 Hot Stuff/Bad Girls - Donna Summer
#120 I Want You Back - Jackson 5
#121 Stand By Me - Ben E. King
#146 Rock Lobster - B-52s(Saw them w/Talking Heads in 1979)
#239 The Wanderer - Dion
#245 The Night They Drove Old Dixie Down - Band(I've Joan Baez)
#246 (Your Love Keeps Lifting Me)Higher and Higher-Jackie Wilson
#276 I'll Take You There - The Staple Singers
#308 Lonely Teardrops - Jackie Wilson
#338 Maybe I'm Amazed - Paul McCartney
#342 Runaround Sue - Dion
#344 Piece Of My Heart - Janis Joplin
#348 That Lady (Part 1 and 2) - The Isley Brothers
#369 I'm a Man - Bo Diddley(I've Chicago and Yardbirds)
#462 Respect Yourself -The Staple Singers
#474 One Nation Under a Groove - Funkadelic
#479 Lady Marmalade - Patti LaBelle

So from their top 500, I like 22. For anyone reading this, I would be interested in: Your impression of the top 500, of my songs in the 500, and the other 478 songs not on my list. What I would really like is for someone to see my song lists and that would be a good thing to discuss.

As for food, mostly cereal, pasta, fruits, nuts, dairy. I drink a lot of milk. 3+ gallons a week, and 1 percent.
The six things I could never do without
Oxygen, water, food, sleep, vitamins, sunshine
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Love, and the lack thereof. Maybe that sounds a little sad and forlorn, but I'm philosophical about it. I can't make someone love me. I can only try, every day, to put my best foot forward, to be the best person I can be. If I have to be alone, then I will try to be happy. So far, I've been successful. Hope springs eternal, and I still retain hope.
On a typical Friday night I am
Having a typical Friday night.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm honest. I'll admit anything and everything all you have to do is ask. I would only ask you to at least wait for the second date before you put me on the spot.
You should message me if
If anything you see or read appeals to you and possibly if our friend and match percentages are high and our "enemy" percentage is low. And by the way, I think that is absolutely the wrong word to use, at least for me. I would NEVER describe or refer to any woman on this earth as my "enemy".
