My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
[Based on a true story]

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

I like to have fun. Fun, fun, F-U-N. Breathing is another lifelong passion. I hope this provides you with some useful insights.

More profile ahead, but first this is pledge week for most local PBS affiliates....

[Do not erase]
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.

Keeping healthy -- best shape I've been in, in oh, 3 or 4 weeks.

Saving up to buy a weekend country house.

Flirting with disaster.

Reading the fine print.

Sometimes (as has been true of late), working intensely and appreciating the stimulation.
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 almost any innocuous sentence.

Driving. (With the windows open.)

Keeping 2 contradictory ideas in my head.

Listening carefully. (I'm sorry -- 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 highly irreverent. Indomitable. Delightful.

Tall for my height.

And that I'm probably holding a cup of coffee.
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. As of this writing on the eve of Halloween '15, I'm finishing Roger Cohen's transcendent & iridescent "The Girl From Human Street."

My musical universe is vast. A few stars in the constellation:
Bach, Ellington, Beethoven, Schubert, Kurt Weill, Brahms, Dvorak, Kodaly, katchaturian, & Bartok, Debussy, Satie, 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. Teagarden. The American Songbook royalty: Rodgers, Kern, Gershwin, Berlin, Porter, Arlen, Loesser ..... Also Bernstein & Sondheim. Nellie McCay!

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

Also a serious fan of film scores (Steiner,, Hermann, both Bernsteins, both Newmans (Randy's uncles), Waxman, Korngold, North, Young, Tiomkin, Kapur, Raksin, Webb, Previn, and more.)

Van Morrison, Beatles, Allman Bros, Sweet Baby James, Stevie Wonderous, Clapton, Pink Floyd, Moody Blues, Cat Stevens, and more. Original and distinctive musical voices.

Somewhat encyclopedic about classic films (can you spell "Ouspenskaya"?) As one small but significant example, I'm devotee of the unique and literary collaborative work of Michael Powell & Emeric Pressburger.

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 many other art venues.

Grew up playing sports & the classic street games on the streets & playgrounds of Brooklyn and still highly 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. Energetic, active, 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, and now both in college); my nephew, and my adorable 5 year-old grand nephew. (We seem to produce only males in my lineage; also only have brothers.)

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 skill at counting 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.

Alternate parking rules.

How much narcissism and fetish can one culture contain?

Lifting with my legs and not with my back.

What's my motivation?

The relentless pursuit of cool.

The 80/20 rule.

WWJD.... Who would Jesus date?

The difference between "mostly monogamous" and "strictly monogamous."

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, but attitude ain't art.

Yes, yes, it's half full, but full of what?

If you must know, the advantages of carbon dating.

What about a new dog and old tricks?

Why does nobody ever answer the tidbit about religion with "Buddhism, and laughing about it"?

Are the rumors true?

The slippery slopes of simple narratives.

Compared to what?
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 a Retrosexual -- my word, and not even sure what that is.

Switched to artificial intelligence about 8 months ago. Big improvement.

Above, I originally spelled Bessie's name as Bessy. Unforgivable.

I do smile occasionally.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
Your female pheromones want to meet my male pheromones.

True, nobody is good enough for you, but if you can bring yourself to lower your standards to my level....

You are smart, accomplished, and KIND, but you still want your man to think "Babe!" whenever he looks at you.

Seriously, you are looking for a man -- a life partner, not a lifestyle accessory. We've all wasted an awful lot of time already, haven't we?

But remember, supplies are limited, so call now.

p.s. Don't assume that Just because I didn't initiate contact that I'm not interested. If you are, say hello. Also, thanks for "liking" me, but I don't see 'em.
