My self-summary
People who know me describe me as fiercely loyal, trustworthy, honest, compassionate non-conformist with a twisted sardonic sense of humor (people who crack me up – David Sedaris, Mitch Hedberg, Demetri Martin, Matt & Trey). I'm fascinated by things that are either of an intellectual nature or ridiculously silly (borderline stupid). I'm mostly bored by anything in-between.
Friends always identify me with these three things:
a) New Orleans - my 'home away from home'.
b) Halloween - I go WAY overboard. I'm famous in my neighborhood for it.
c) LA Kings - I love hockey. Gladiators on ice. How could any sport be better than that?
Every once in a while I'll be stuck in traffic on the PCH while the sun is setting over the ocean and all I can think is, "this is the best traffic jam ever".
What I’m doing with my life
After an 18 year career in intellectual property law, I had an 'Office Space' moment of clarity and went into self reinvention mode. Doing work that I love now - carpentry during the week, dog rescue on weekends, playing music, volunteering with Habitat for Humanity when I have time.
I’m really good at
building/creating things (furniture, movie sets, houses, etc.) and playing music. Also seeing all 17 sides to every story, playing devil's advocate and resolving conflict through cognitive process.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: David Sedaris, Charles Bukowski, and Confederacy of Dunces (if you know the book, then you probably already knew I was a fan).

Movies: Anything that involves Rob Reiner and/or Christopher Guest, Tim Burton, Pedro Almodovar, Q.T. or the Coen Bros. And of course the Godfather - but that goes without saying, right? I generally prefer indie and foreign films because they're usually just better, but I'll watch certain blockbusters just to keep up on pop culture. I have 'boycotted' watching the oscars (and any hollywood awards shows) ever since Shawshank Redemption lost to Forrest Gump for best picture. wtf?

Music: VERY ecclectic - though I tend to lean towards bands like Muse, Black Keys, Band of Skulls, Jet... etc. Short list also includes Elliott Smith, Iguanas, G. Love & Special Sauce, My Morning Jacket, Triumph, Kansas, Neko Case, anything Stanton Moore related, Iron Maiden, Drive By Truckers, Hawksley Workman, Calexico, Queensryche, and oh, about 10,000 others. And anything that absolutely lays down the funk (if there is an appropriate place to insert 'good god-y'all', then count me in!) I think Kings of Leon are severely over-rated. Yeah, I said it. sigh. I tend to really dislike any homogenous manufactured lowest common denominator top 40 bubblegum garbage. (Although every once in a while a song like that will get it's hooks in me and I'll hate myself for loving it.)

TV: Jon Stewart/Stephen Colbert, Archer, SOA, Metalocolypse, Justified, Dexter, Mythbusters, Wilfred (1st season - great. 2nd season - wtf?), Portlandia, An Idiot Abroad, Natgeo, Discovery, History channel, Breaking Bad (but I'm a couple seasons behind - no spoilers please)...
The six things I could never do without
my musical instruments
my tools
my blender (for smoothies)
my crockpot (for jambalaya)
my family
my friends
(note: these are not in any particular order)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Politics, anthropology, quantum physics, why are we here? ...are we really here? ...is there a solution to the problem of perpetual motion? ...am I supposed to be somewhere else right now? ...I'm pretty sure I'm supposed to be in New Orleans right now. ...who was the first person to eat eggs for breakfast - was it some really impatient person who was just in the mood for chicken? ...how do we undo the damage hipsters have done to the word 'irony'? ...if there is a god, and he was a singer, would he sound more like Lyle Lovett or Neil Diamond? [I recently received a nomination for Leonard Cohen - brilliant! and I should probably add Nat King Cole to the ballot too]
On a typical Friday night I am
true. I am. I just couldn't tell you where or what I'm doing...
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Journey. 'nuf said. oh, and Styx. Okay, okay - the whole 80's rock thing. Nostalgia is a very powerful thing.
I’m looking for
  • Girls who like guys
  • Ages 34–40
  • Near me
  • For long-term dating, short-term dating
You should message me if
- you hear tom waits voice in your head when you read bukowski
- you can appreciate a well timed 'that's what she said' joke
- you're not hung up on traditional gender roles and are waiting for me to happen upon your profile and contact you (I mean, if you're awesome, I probably will. But if you beat me to it, don't worry - I'm not threatened by assertive women)
- you can explain to me what the 'jumping in the air at the beach' photos are all about... is 'vertical leap' a top rated quality that men are looking for in a partner?
