My self-summary
I guess what I’m looking for more than anything is banter. That feeling that you’re riding a conversation around like an ecstatic toddler riding a St. Bernard around the yard. All big grins and flailing and sudden direction changes and limitless adventure. The stuff that keeps you up at 11:30 on a Tuesday night, with the beer you forgot to drink in your hand because you’re having so much fun.

I like to talk about big things like politics and society and why people think what they think and do what they do. I'm intensely curious. I’m silly, blasphemous, crabby, funny (with the right person), optimistic, kind, a little neurotic and given to frequent non-sequiturs. I ask a lot of questions and like it when you do too. I tell a good story and like it when you tell me one back. I want to walk by a muffler shop with you and you to grab me and say “That reminds me when I lived in Milwaukee and we had this shitbox Celica than was held together with tie wire”! Or something. Anything. I can be a little chatty, especially if I like you. Not, though, in a My God, I Will Give You All the Money in My Wallet If You Will Only Shut Up kind of way.

I like my place; it’s a good reflection of me. I have a lot of lamps because I don’t like bright, overhead light. I’ve got a thing about lighting and just the right amount of restaurant din.

I like hang out in the darkroom printing an elusive shot with a record playing, but I also like to get out and see a random band. I like taking in an art show that I've never heard of and being introduced to an activity that I would never have thought to engage in. I like crowds and watching people behave in them and am never deterred from something fun because there might be too many people there.

I work in the surreal world of diesel smoke, bad grammar, dipshit politics, un-ironically-worn moustaches and a curious obsession with restaurant portion sizes. My hands are callused and cut and both thumbnails smashed--I won't be doing any hand modeling any time soon. I’m an electrical inspector for a blue-and-white placarded utility company you may have heard of. I say snotty things like: "Where's your hardhat?" and "Don't eat that, it has lead in it!" and my favorite: “Are you going to leave that like that?” I look up blueprints and design standards and safety bulletins and-- shit, I spend a lot of time looking stuff up! It's kind of a weird job-- a cross between a warehouse clerk and a middle school vice-principal.
What I’m doing with my life
Making a living; hanging out with friends and family; a shot of adrenaline now and again; search for a good career/free time balance.
I’m really good at
Skiing in a long-abandoned style. Shooting film. Shooting. Summing up any evening's events with a deft reference to a 1940s Loony Tunes cartoon. Telling a story. Arguing a point without patronizing you within an inch of your life. Fixing a light and a plug and telling you that you've got way too much stuff plugged in at the same time. Knowing my business, which consists of getting electrons from one place to another. In tiny little buses. I'm also really good at not remembering why I went into the other room.
The first things people usually notice about me
Well, it's the high-school quarterback good looks, of course! I was told recently that I look like a character actor. Not anyone in particular, just someone's brother or dad or co-worker. I was hoping for Harry Dean Stanton.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
That's a lot of questions for just one box. Is this one of those Christian sites that tries to pair you up with someone using some poorly-weighted algorithm that attributes as many points to one's favorite color as their political views? Hmmm, sounds like somebody didn't have a good experience with E-harmony!

OK, here are a few random things:
Creedence; The Gourds; Robert Earl Keen; Drive-by truckers; What's the Matter With Kansas; Goodfellas; Jaws; Son Volt; The God Delusion; Holding Fast the Inner Lines (WW1 tome); The Clash; Elvis Costello; old delta blues guys whose names start with "Blind"; Cold War Kids; Bob Dylan; The Beatles; Rosamede; Brian Eno; Salon; Tom Waits; Slate; Huffington Post; Pliny the Elder; old Stones; Heartless Bastards; Old 97s; old Joni Mitchell; almost anything played on the turntable... except maybe for Mac Davis and the Barbara Streisand Superman album. Not those.

Of course tastes are funny things. They don't seem to be very reliable indicators of how we'll get along. Rapport, wit and chemistry are elusive things.
The six things I could never do without
Coffee; wine; good conversation with good friends; really fast skis; a motorbike in this can't find a parking place town; something for music to elegantly leak from.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
When I'm not thinking about finding the next hiding spot at work, I think about politics and society and where I might like to go over the weekend. Why people on OKC announce: "I'm seeing someone now!" instead of just taking their profile down. What the world's tonnage of ants is. Whether I should get off the management track and just put my fucking tools back on. How glad I am that I can buy a shirt nowadays that isn't covered in embroidery. Why there's always a 70s soft rock minor Jim Croce hit stuck in my head. Oh, OK, I'll bite: Sex.
On a typical Friday night I am
Oh, I'm much too enigmatic to engage in anything typical. Or was that distractible? I fear it's the latter.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I bought a house that I don't live in in a city I don't want to move to mostly to shut up all of my parents' friends about the virtues of home ownership.
