Music and retro popular culture is my life force. I am not passive about these things. I dont just like "anything with a good beat". I can dissect it and analyze it and tell you it's history and why it is making you want to dance, cry, stick it to "the man", or fall in love. (And if you let me, I will talk about it for hours...Muhahaha!)
If you are looking for the guy who is running the marathon to surf at the beach after hangliding off a mountain he just climbed, I am not your guy. There seems to be a lot of that kind of stuff here. I am also not the guy who spends his time traveling to the outer reaches of Mongolia to live with native tribes. Those are all cool things, but that's not me either.
I am (at least in my own mind) funny and smart and exceedingly honest and patient and NICE most of the time. I can converse with you about the history of Crimea or Chomsky's linguistic theories but I would probably be happier discussing the genius of Don Knotts.
I am trying to put things in place to open a restaurant. I am excited and terrified about this, but I figure that even if I fall on my face, that its better being my own boss. It might be a while before that happens though.
While I have played in bands for years, I am taking a break. Up until recently, I had a DJ set one Saturday a month at a local bar. Not the thumpa thumpa dance stuff, but rare 60's soul and R&B.
I would love to meet someone who lives nearby (think SF, Oakland, Berkeley, Alameda).
I obsessively follow a small soccer team in West London.
I have tattoos that cover both my arms and may or may not want more.
I have a great old classic car that I love to work on (but not awesome for going too far out of town as it is 53 years old and all).
That being said, I am very interested creating local-ish adventures! If interested, Please submit your application for the position of "LOYAL AND TRUSTY SIDEKICK!!"
There is no setting for "Tall and Husky" on OKC! :(
Books: Steinbeck. Hemingway. HP Lovecraft. Neruda, Dashiell Hammett. I like the classics. I also read non-fiction like bio's, manuals, historical things. I can spend hours looking at maps. And shiny things. OOOH!!

Old TV shows. I am not embarrassed of watching TV and you shouldn't either.
Music: AC/DC, KISS, MC5, Sabbath, Sonics, Otis, Booker T, Etta, Howlin' Wolf, Sam and Dave, Northern, Stax, RAMONES, Stooges, Dead Boys, Clash, Spits, Mummies, The Dammed, RFTC, Devo, Cash, Buck Owens, Merle Haggard, Bob Wills, Patsy Cline, Charlie Parker, Sinatra, Ella, Dinah Washington, Dizzy, Sarah Vaughn, Chet Baker, Wanda Jackson, Wynona Carr, Carl Perkins, Doo Wop and pre-Rock and roll, 70's glam, 60's French pop, and that barely scratches the surface.
At the moment, this is my tops on my turntable...
Movies: I like everything from Hollywood action films to independent artsy-fartsy crap. I am a big fan of film noir. And I have a not-so-secret love for cheesy old horror movies and sci-fi from the 50's and 60's. Mel Brooks is a genius!
Food: I love Mexican/Salvadoran, Indian, Chinese, Thai, Vietnamese, Burgers, Pizza, German, BBQ, Scotch. I love a good salad too!
If you are some kind of Super Genius that uses her powers for good MOST of the time.
If you are funny. REALLY funny. REALLY REALLY FREAKIN' FUNNY!!
I am fairly left, politically, but also very tolerant for the most part. That said, John Birch-er/Tea Party-er conservative religious types, please move on.
You are 'ok' with the fact that I hate Mumford and all of his sons.
You dont have strong beliefs in Astrology or psychics or Scientology or some other silly type of self-analysis or Woo.
You might want to take swing dancing lessons with me.
You DONT have kids.
You have no interest in Burning Man.
Extra points if you have a retro, vintage style.
While you dont have to be all rock and roll, you at LEAST have to like the Ramones or it just isn't going to work!
