My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
[Do not erase]

New York wry bred. Droll. Pithy me. Viewer discretion advised.

I like to have fun. Hope that helps. I also like breathing.

You could probably do better. But you could also do worse. A lot worse.

Thought of writing something humorous, but didn't want to spoil the mood.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Living it but not by any bucket list, simply as it comes.

Lifting with my back instead of my legs.

Working on my unauthorized autobiography.

Saving up to buy a weekend country house. And matching towels. (No, to each other, silly, not to the house. Well, OK, maybe to the house as well.)
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Naming that tune. No, a different tune.

Fixing things and tinkering. Own tools & good with my hands.

Finding a bawdy innuendo or double entendre in an innocuous sentence.


Keeping 2 contradictory ideas in my mind.

Listening carefully. (Did you say something?)

Predicting the past.

Remembering birthdays: loved ones'. Duke Ellington's. Yours?
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
That I'm inside-out.

That I'm now available on Blue-Ray and for streaming....
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Equally at home with both high & low brow, elegant venues & dive joints. And the dive joints are not for irony.

ALWAYS have a book in tow: history, bios, sociology, politics, sports, memoirs, Shakespeare, some poetry, some fiction.

My musical universe is nothing if not vast. A few of the stars in the constellation:
Bach, Ellington, Beethoven, Schubert, Kurt Weill, Brahms, Debussy, Stephen Foster & Scott Joplin, The Duke & The Count, Bix & Bing, Bird & Diz, Bill & Gil Evans, Jobim's sambas & Piazzola's tangos. Plus Jango, Sinatra & Bennett, Dvorak, Samuel Barber, Sibeilus, Elgar, Bessie & Billie, Ella & Pops, Ray Charles, Miss Peggy Lee, Nat Cole, Dear Blossom. The American Songbook royalty: Rodgers, Kern, Gershwin, Berlin, Porter, Loesser ..... Also Bernstein & Sondheim. Nellie McCay!

Bluegrass makes me smile, and Merle Haggard, Waylon & Willie, Hank Williams, Kitty Wells, & Johnny Cash are old Country Western hard-drinking buddies from my blue collar days.

Also a serious fan of film scores (Hermann, both Bernsteins, Steiner, Friedhoffer, Randy Newman's uncles, Franz Waxman, Korngold, North, Tiomkin, Kapur, Webb, and more.)

Van Morrison, Beatles, Allman Bros, Sweet Baby James, Bobby Darin, Clapton, Pink Floyd, Moody Blues, and more. Original and distinctive musical voices.

Somewhat encyclopedic about classic films (can you spell "Ouspenskaya"?) and appreciate any and all "honest" theater, whether drama, comedy, musicals or musical comedy,.

Am a regular attendee of ballet & dance, the Met museum, the NYHS and other art venues.

Grew up playing sports on the streets & playgrounds of Brooklyn and still athletic. Have never been a fanatical fan, but I enjoy baseball more than the other spectator sports and happy to explain why if you are interested, but also enjoy football once the autumn chill arrives. Very energetic and love the great outdoors.

Am a pretty good sous chef. Tend to eat healthy, mostly vegetarian. As for cuisines, can't think of a single ethnic one I don't enjoy.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1. My two sons (who live with their mother, both in college by the fall of 2015); my nephew, and my adorable 5 year-old grand nephew.

2. Beverages: First cup of coffee in the AM and sometimes a cocktail in the evening.

3. Music (covered extensively above .)

4. Books .

6. Humor.

5. The 4 distinct seasons we get in NY.

7. My ability to count to six.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
What the studies REALLY show.

How much narcissism and fetish can one culture contain?

Lifting with my legs not my back.

What's my motivation?

The relentless pursuit of cool.

WWJD.... Who would Jesus date?

When did the art of flirting die? And when did we lose our ability to laugh at ourselves?

Is it just my imagination....?

The American League East division race.

Why (almost) nobody whistles anymore.

The law of supply. And demands.

Is it time to re-introduce radishes into my diet?

That attitude is easy -- there's an epidemic of that -- and attitude isn't art.

Sure, the glass is half full. But full of WHAT?

The advantages of carbon dating.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Ready to be swept off your feet.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I have a book that's 3 days overdue at the library. (Do "real men" read?)

I'm Retrosexual -- whatever that is.

Switched to artificial intelligence about 8 months ago. Big improvement.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
I'd say don't bother, but given the fact that overwhelmingly you women don't initiate contact, it's kinda pointless, rather like telling a fish to go for a swim.

Besides, I'm only on this site for the fun of writing and re-writing my profile. I find it a creative outlet. There's SOOO much fodder to skewer here, especially you VERY serious types.

(If THAT'S not a challenge, I don't know what is.)
