newest revision - 12/11/13
Stayed away from Best Man 2 because I DO NOT like stories about the Xmas or the time of the season. Many have called this the Black "Big Chill" which if you take away the Xmas it sort of is. I liked it - a lot!!! Very evocative! And believable - nice story. Ok and it has some fantastically beautiful actresses especially Nia Long. Go see it and bring some hankies!!!
Pour yourself a wine or other adult beverage - get yourself comfortable and enjoy the read. And ride.
This is constantly under revision and changing !!! Come back often because you might find something you like.
12/07/13 Ok, more movies: Best film of 2013 nominees will include Philomena and The Book Thief which I saw yesterday. Bring tissues! Judi Densch will get a nomination for best actress. Her film resonates completely with my take on religon as portrayed by her journalist foil played by Steve Coogan. I felt this character was portraying me. Just delightful! What great casting. This film really exposes the hypocrasy of the church and those that feel they are the ARBITORS of God and SIN. You have sinned and must pay the price" Yeah, In the name of God. My ass!!! BTW these are the very same people who while hating gays fail to acknowledge that the priests of the church who are pedaphiles or sexually abuse boys are indeed homosexuals - go figure.... Nonetheless the last quarter of this film really gets you and focuses on the truth and point of the movie and of history. It is based on the true life of Philomena Lee.
Also horray for the Pope (Pope Frankie) he's doin' it His Way!!! Very truthful and positive manifesto condemming the way capitalism is practiced - especially in America. How people (those on the right particularly) can support industries and business that provide unlivable wages to workers who then must go out and get and depend on government subsidies and then label these workers moochers (you know Mitt's 47% of this country's population) is pathetic and self serving. But that is what they are - and none of them could exist on those SERF wages. I dare them. But you already know my take on this - if not keep reading its below on this page somewhere...
Oh yeah - Foxx turned 15 on Dec 4, 2013. What a great dog and what a handsome boy he is!!!!! :-)
11/23/13 New stuff: Mostly film About Time - - very endearing, cute flows very well and well I can't say anything bad about Rachel MacAdams - she's totally believable and it pretty much brings you to tears a number of time... I'll see every film this group of women produce they really know how to show you stories about love... 12 years a Slave - the trailers were the best although this is a great story and shows why the South will and never should rise again!!! (It's the mentality of their interpretation of Scripture...)
Enders Game - nice twist at the end - its a kids fairy tale sci fi adventure for adults. Bad grandpa - save your money
Saw The Butler - great story,very poignent - I cried...
Friday off to see Don Juan and Enough Said. Hey, retirement is great! What's more I get to sit in the VERY middle seat - my fave!!!:-) On the other hand AVOID WITH A PLAGUE "Blue Jasmine"!!! I love Woody but this is a dog - if you have to see it go to a drive in and make out with your date!!! You won't be missing anything!!!Sorry Alec! By the way - now that Tom Clancy died perhaps the THREE RYAN's - that's you, Ford and Affleck and can fill in on his book tour and do the book signings. It would be a nice touch!
Today's (10/9)synopsis is the Last day Without You is at least 2 stars - mainly because it had no "stars" in it. Otherwise it was a just cute film nicely done about life in New York and a achance encounter between a German Business guy who is sent by his company to terminate a company and a budding chantuesse singer songwriter. He's white she's black and lives in Brooklyn and its a story about a one day episode that becomes promising even though he really is supposed to catch the night flight on Luftansa back home. You might even call it sweet...
On the other hand I can not say enough about Enough Said - I give it 4 stars even though I don't particularly like Julie Dreyfus whatever her name is. I don't like Elaine and I never saw even one episode of Seinfeld!!! Not a one. But in htis movie she made me like her. Perhaps it was that she didn't playact the Jewishness I felt the Seinfeld show had. (But I didn't see any episodes right!!!. She was perfect for the part - soooo Cal-i-forniaish although it didn't seem like Cal-i-fornia except for the license plates and sights. And too bad about Jim Gandolfini. I believed him as his chracter as well perhaps because he embodied and said my thoughts and what I think my persona is. Go see this film!!! It should win best writing for a screenplay - it was dead on... I don't think there was ANY overacting.The story was believable and the acting just flowed - I like it and besides giving it my 3 thumbs up guarantee it should be rated 4 stars. You should like it.
This profile is, as I am, a work in progress/evolvement.
You could find me to be your perfect summer project. Well maybe not sooooo perfect. Summer is gone but the SHUTDOWN is here - it's time to liberate the National Parks - Occupy the Capitol Building in Wash. D.C. Revolt is in the air and is much needed and November elections are not soon enough - We need a March on Washington like we had back in the 60's - Right Arm, brother!!! For more check out the Question in the Ethics section:
Do you enjoy discussing politics? Its's a rant in progress...
My Self Summary:
The GOOD, the BAD and the Ugly:
This is my good self - the wild and crazy, zany, raconteur.
Today: Today is profile revision day! This is revision 3.2 (08/31/2013)with 4000+ questions answered (all of them) and 220+ Tests taken!!!
SHORT Term: Another birthday - ya' know 64 is like the new 40'!!!! Ok ladies I just ran over my boy Ulyssess last night and so everything is on hold I'm shutting the traveling and trolling thing down. Sorry, my dogs are more important than my social and sex lives and his recuperation is going to preoccupy my money time and devotion. This is going to cost many K's - that's thousands for the uninitiated but I had him in my life first so that's where my obligations lie/lay...
MID Term: I'm on a mission - looking for a co-pilot to join me on a few bombing runs... If you're looking for some exploration or engaging discussion come with me..., or come to photograph as well. Or write. We can be a travel "team." Do your good deed for the day - be my MUSE. I'm planning on leaving New Orleans this summer no specific itinerary nor schedule - just camera in hand - remember I'm retired ;-) . Afflicted with the travel bug... I'm planning on spending 1 year in each of the following (no particular order) 4 Corners Native American country, California, Oregon and Washington and their coasts. (presently I am venturing to travel to Spokane.) Then I plan on venturing abroad to Ireland and Scotland each for a year and perhaps Italy and France. I have this need for a Kilt! And Guinness and Jameson and competing in the Galway Oyster Eating competition!!! Be with me. My heart can be hijacked !!! Interested in the ultimate ROAD TRIP? Ready to experience an enjoyable adventure of a lifetime? Come with me...
Obviously one of my vices/passions is photography and down in the NAWLIN'S there's plenty to shoot. My red carpet friends who/m I use to run w /back East called me the "unpaparazzi" paparazzi. I don't CHASE anybody! Lets go on photo safari around town and we can see what develops or if you don't know how I'll show you. If not just bring some images - show me yours and I'll show you mine. Either way it's a no pressure adventure - we'll learn a lot about each other - and, you'll have a great time. The worst that can happen is you'll leave with great timely images of youself for your profile page!!!!!And lets face it there are way too many terrible images on these pages. I played lacrosse and college soccer as a goalie; goalies are different - they have a different perspective. On everything...
I was a GREAT youth league soccer coach - if you have a kid who plays thats a plus. I snow ski and yearn to be a ski bum - a least for one season.
Sometimes I like to force a square word into a round hole (sentence)...
I'm competitive - when I want to be: When I play 3rd and look to my left - I'm even with the pitcher not the SS. When I'm catcher and the play comes to the plate know it's going to hurt. So when I play softball, volleyball, or ski you'll want to get out of my way...I was a great pairs hustle/disco dancer - the kind a crowd would surround - and would have any woman over my head in three dances. I miss that so am learning (badly) the Swing dancing thing now, then Tango - care to fly? You'll find me to be a humorous bon vivant.
You will find that I don't consider myself gods gift to women, just a one woman man who is faithful, capable of emotional, mental and physical affection and love, Well, I WAS that up until three months ago. I understand women. I just don't believe that you actually do what you do, think the way you think, and act the way you act. Care to compare notes? But I resigned myself to the fact that after all this is a game - and I am NOW here to play. I was not a wolf in sheeps clothing as many of my gender mates are. For the past 50 years I was the reverse but you didn't notice. I've evolved into a new animal whose goal is not grazing! If you want this lamb you're going to have to sooth the lion that is fiercely protective of it!
I cook! I make a mean Quiche, Crab Cakes and asst'd pastries among other dishes. I experimented with and was a vegan for a year - if you prefer that that's fine - you'll just have to reintroduce me. You don't ever want to give me one of YOUR recipes! When you make a dish I'll always be there to watch - and to lick the spoon, please!!! When I cook we'll dance - real slooow... visualize my thumbs lifting you up by the beltloops of your pants placing your unshoed feet on mine - pulling you close as we sway to the rythym of the beating of our hearts... Picnics are nice also! Picnics are good for frisky too!!!
Did I mention I like travel and exploring new places?
I'm the original "Wild and Crazy Guy" and the model for the John Belushi/Blutarski character in Animal House - of course, I know that Japan bombed the Pearl NOT the Germans. I can make you laugh. Or provide you with provocative, insightful and intellegent conversation. I have a slow hand. I had 12 (4 now - southern LA is not good for animals - chemicals from Katrina are still here) Miniature Schnauzers which I trained as comfort dogs to the VA's. I WAS an incurable romantic... Don't ever ask me if this makes you look fat.
I know what's in the Constitution and the more important document the Declaration of Independence - I read the former every Jan 1 and July 4th and can recite a good portion of the latter. I write orgasmic erotica. I don't own or have a firearm. But thanks to Boy Scout camp I obtained every marksmanship medal there was!
I'm not a commitment-phobe. I have a long fuse but if you abuse me I'll leave. I just started working out again - was in decent shape before quitting 20 years ago. I can gain or lose 20/30 lbs in a month. What you see today will be different in 30 days. You'll find me to be a perfect Yankee Gentleman: I can keep you warm on BOTH sides of the sheets. I don't Twitter, Tumblr, or Skype - but I "wrastle." How about best two out of three falls? ;-) Game??? Lets spoon - although, cooler weather spooning is preferred.
Please DON'T RESPOND with the " but you're too far away or you are in New Orleans and I am in..., or I don't do long distance. Save us both some time and please just don't bother responding at all - reading comprehension counts! So while it will be from your perspective - your perspective about our compatibility is and will be wrong!!! If you are the right one I have no problem coming to you.
I know some of you women will think that I am being attitudinal but hey - girls, - I'm just throwing yours back at you!!! It's parity!!! So, we're a lot alike..
I need to FOCUS MORE on a certain exposure...
O - (neg) blood type which makes me a rare commidity. Yes!, O- is the universal donor so you and I are more than "just" compatible already. But it will take you more than one or two visits or dates to fully appreciate what I am. Even in person. As it should be. Flash in the pan is just that - "flash". I'm NOT!!!
You will find me to be complexly simple. And simply complex. I am uniquely different than any of the males you have or will experience/d who want to get into your soft girlish mound. That is and was never the first thing on my list. It is on theirs. I will not suffer for the sins of my gendermates!!! I do not suffer a fools errand gladly. You should take note of that!
I love a good rant!!! Don't you???
One more thing - on occasion when a woman (that would be YOU) chooses to be in a relationship with me I become a different person - I bloom. Be prepared for YOUR gendermates to come out of the woodwork to flirt with what you have birthed. Fear not - I am disparagingly and disdainfully angry with them. You will be aware that you are with the LAST BOY SCOUT. They deserve it!!!. :-)
That said I am worthy of a spot on your dance card - the one after the last note has reverberated, whose hand you reach for and lead to your chambers.
Open your heart...
Consider the possibilities...
It will be an enjoyable and exciting adventure.
What I'm looking for:
Natural and casual are nice after all we're not going to the PROM -unless we are. I'm a leg man so if you wear shorts thats what I'll be staring at. Of course Spring has sprung so bring 'em on. Ok, it's nearing the end of summer now - so shoot me!!! Inversely, I don't get stupid with, um, lets say, overly large have their own zip code female accoutrements - if you have them fine. I don't like you more the larger they are. Some guys do. I'm not one of them! Just know that I am attracted to you because of something else!!! Besides you'll adore me because I do something else! And while we're on the topic of OMG - sex!!! - in full disclosure I know about the g-spot, a-spot and OM - your pleasure is paramount and really that's all you need to know about me in this area. Don't be a CT (that's two letters not four.)
Use your f%#@*'n blinkers. Be my MUSE. Don't get bent out of shape if I use the wrong fork - I'm a functional guy....BTW last time I checked Chicken - yeah, its a finger food! Boneless or not!!!
Have something you are passionate about and love animals preferably dogs. I tolerate house cats - but not feral cats. Know what's real and be the mature adult that you are but let your inner little girl out once in awhile. Let me play with your pigtails. And please, don't have your head buried in your iPhone when we're on a date... On second thought put your iPhone down - live life!!! Be prepared to be dessert. That's what I'm looking for in and from a woman. And one last thing - DON'T make love HURT!!!!
There's a spot for you right here, Scully!!!
Thank you for your time and consideration.
