My self-summary
Just looking for a happy person (short story)

Get your reading glasses on!

-I'm a pet dad (i take in rescued animals. Mostly reptiles). My cat and bearded dragon Don, the Lizard Man, are my family. I'm a bit of a foodie. I will eat anything at least twice. I'm into quite a bit: skateboarding, painting, cooking, hiking, fishing, camping, movies, photography, music, writing music, blah blah blah. I like to do a little of everything, spread my skills out rather than be good at one thing. I went to school for Art, Geology/Paleontology and Cryptozoology on the side. I have a huge movie and music collection as well (my friends call me the "critic", "media snob", etc..). I like to be as active as possible. I have Fibromyalgia and a 6 inch plate in my leg, so the next day i have to relax. Not bad considering i love movies, playing guitar and video games :p
-I am a bit of a "workaholic". I have a hard time stopping once i have started something.
-I haven't dated in over a year, so i'm a tad rusty. Not to great at flirtin

-Also, if you are a complete ass to me on here, DO NOT approach me at a show after seeing what i do for a living. I WILL NOT talk to, nor will i look in your direction. I get that a lot being a band photographer. Seeing me in person/seeing what i do for a living should not change your opinion of me.
What I’m doing with my life
Since one of my good friends passed, i've been focused on just living. Socializing and adventuring as much as possible.

(https://www.facebook.com/xCouchphotox) you can also fallow me on Instagram "Couch_photography"

I've done a lot already... But, I'm a band/wedding/event photographer. Magazines/papers/promos for bands and etc. I like what I do. What's not to love about meeting famous bands.

I help raise awareness for Fibromyalgia. Remember that ice bucket challenge thing? Yeah, well Fibro is in that same family of disease, and i have it. It's extremely difficult, so i like to help out. most people don't know they have it. It makes me happy to know i could help someone in pain.

I'm having a Fibro Awareness show at the 13th Floor in Florence MA. Some really rad Doom-Rock bands from NY. Can't wait!!
I also just started selling Zilla/Zoo med as well as selling art and promoting shows.

I'm very active for someone who should't be
I’m really good at
I pride my self on my knowledge about movies and music. I'm like a media historian....

According to my friends: Cooking, photography, memorizing weird facts no one really needs to know. I seem to be someone who attracts others in my trades, or, if someone cant remember something media based :p

I'm not really sure, I don't really think about myself too much.
The first things people usually notice about me
Physically? Unfortunately my piercings and tattoos. Maybe my walk.... I kinda limp sometimes. I have no idea, no one tells me this kinda schtuff

I'm a talker. That's pretty noticeable .............

"I recognize you from shows" is the number 1 thing (if i had a dollar for every time i got that message).
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
There a quite a few things i like:

MOVIES: I loooooove Cary Grant and Frank Morgan movies. I suppose i watch horror movies mostly (dead alive, sleepy hallow, hellraiser, pumkinhead. I recently saw Odd Thomas, loved it) . I do love the weird imaginative type movies like Labyrinth or The Dark Crystal. I watch a lot of TCM so, you can imagine I love old black and white movies, especially 50s-80s monster movies (i such as the Seventh voyage of sinbad)..... I obviously watch A LOT of movies so I'd like to meet some one with the same obsession obsession.

CARTOONS: I collect old cartoons.... i have a huge collection that is always growing. anything from 1920- 1995, old cartoons!!! i have a huge cartoon and anime collection on my computer....my fav cartoons at the moment are freakazoid, swat cats, pirates of dark water, courage the cowardly dog, scooby doo (i have all the spin offs and episodes and seasons), looney tunes, mgm cartoons, funky phantom.... i do like some anime, my fave anime is Lupin the third, Big O, the Miyazaki movie collection, cowboy bebop, ronin warriors and so on

TV: Xfiles is my all time fav show.. i like the history channel, discovery, turner classic movies, cartoon network, the travel channel, the food network, and animal planet, i really don't watch anything else. unless its boomarang... I've been watching Sleepy Hollow, Bonanza, The Mentalist and Bones. Recently, i've been waiting for the second season of the Strain.

MUSIC: My fav bands in the world right now is Ogre you asshole, gorilla biscuits (still, after so many years), Pretend, the littlest viking, Toe, king crimson, t rex, talking heads, Uriah heep, 8otto, Doom riders, deathside, giraffes giraffes, the hives, negative approach, TSOL, dead boys, the freeze, the zero boys, the minutemen. Its hard to refrain from putting way more down, i have such a huge music collection, i guarantee i can show anyone at least 30 bands that you have never even heard of. ---------> this https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1KS_NrEP0cY

GAMES: i own NES, Gamecube, Xbox, SEGA, N64, and an Atari. I really enjoy games with monsters or scary situations. Games such as Bioshock, Arkham Asylum, Guitar Hero, Thief, Deadspace3 halo, Resident Evil, Borderlands, Castlevania, Gears of war, etc... Basically games that are fairly far from reality or Co-Op. Older games: i like sonic the hedgehog, mickeys world of illusion, lost vikings...any zelda game accept the windwaker games. Metroid Prime, Onimusha..... etc

BOOKS: Kitchen Confidential, Cary Grant biography. Any book about scary stories, dinosaurs, books about sharks or other animals. I love reading about recent sightings of cryptids. I have been reading a lot of Lovecraft lately. I'm really into monsters, "gods" and crazy stuff like that.

And yes I like way more than what i typed up here.
The six things I could never do without
Media: music/ movies
My pets (cat and a bearded dragon)
Strange food (especially pho)
Adventure! (Hiking/Swimming)
My camera
My IPOD
I spend a lot of time thinking about
music, food, why history channel doesn't play anything that i can learn from anymore.... How i should spread out or improve my business.
Why is every girl on here a yoga master and or an alcoholic >_> lol.

and.... Big ol butts... idk >_> Who thinks about the same thing every day?
On a typical Friday night I am
Most likely working a show, stuck at home editing, out enjoying a beer, or maybe a movie. I don't have a typical Friday, but, I'm down for what ever. I usually spend my week ends in the Northampton area.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
*I listen to a LOT of Japanese Indie/ Punk/ Math...
*I watch the animated version of the Hobbit 4 times a week.
* i own every Disney classic on VHS
I'm not really afraid of being open at all. I like my quirks.
You should message me if
I don't have "rules" for messages but, some things peek my interest.

- If you have a Bearded Dragon
- If you want to drink tea and watch Sleepy Hollow
- If you want to play some co-op xbox/snes/nes/sega.
- If you're down for random adventures.
- if you want movie marathons.
- If you like, and or, understand prog/math music.
- If you live in Boston or NY. Would be cool to have someone to hang with when i have photo shoots out there!
- If you like fancy beers and aren't a complete train-wreck (for once that would be nice >_>)
- If you are a fellow photographer and enjoy hiking with a camera!!!!

I don't care for pics of vintage bikes, "craft" beers/wine, pics hiking a mountain, spartan runs (everyone on here does that it seems)....etc. High school popularity/image ended in highschool for me. Show me you are a good loyal person and i will give you the same. Reciprocation is the game
