My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
all I really want to do, is baby be friends with you

I am a firm believer that humility is a good quality, but the nature of on-line dating makes that just a little difficult, doesn’t it?….anyway, here’s the quick tour: I’m an intelligent, kind, easy going guy with (in this humble narrator’s opinion) a great sense of humor (love the absurd, non-linear & obscure; I’m definitely a goof sometimes!). I’m honest, affectionate, playful, and loyal (I’ll always have your back); and always try to do the right thing. I’m emotionally available and have made peace with most (all?) of my baggage from past relationships. I’m ready to get back out there; meet some new people and have some fun! So, I’m looking for a good friend (the most important aspect in a relationship, in my opinion), someone I love to hang with, love to laugh with, a partner in crime, a darlin’ companion – I’ll be your Johnny, you be my June. Life is so much richer when shared with someone special, not to mention that it’s easier to fold sheets with two people doing it..

I like to discuss, not argue; recycle, not toss; I’m thrifty but not cheap; irreverent, but serious when it’s called for; listen with my brain, not just my ears; sometimes cynical, but usually optimistic; like to hear the other side of the story and make up my own mind.

I’m in the music business, which has done a good job keeping me young through the years. I’m all about music, live and recorded – love all kinds as long as it has quality. I’m a shameless Springsteen fan. Dylan, Sinatra, Ludwig van, Neil Young, Ella, Cash, Arcade Fire, Beatles (of course!), Zappa, The Kinks, Neko Case, Radiohead….the list is way too long to put down here. Love the Current, First Ave., the Dakota, and MPR (I’m a sustainer): APHC, Car Talk, This American Life. I’m a bit of a pop-culture junkie; you’d want me on your Trivial Pursuit team. I love astronomy (staring into the cosmos gives you so much to ponder. I do like to think about the nature of the universe), and I’m a student of history (ancient, English, American – find it all interesting). Like The Walker and MIA (what is life without art?), weekend brunch at The Uptown Diner; The Electric Fetus.

Not a couch potato, but not an exercise over-achiever either. I joined the Y at the beginning of 2014 and have been enjoying more regular exercise, including yoga, which I really like! Also like to bike, walk, bowl, hike. I don’t follow organized sports, players or statistics, but enjoy going to a baseball or basketball game once in awhile. Enjoy being outside and communing with nature, camping, fishing (catch & release; I find it very relaxing), but I definitely don’t hunt (well…just for good Mexican food).

I’ve lived a lot of different places in my life, including a few years in Europe and Africa, so I’ve been exposed to, and appreciate diverse people, cultures, and ideas. Enjoy observing unusual people, and I try to take something with me from any experiences I run into. I’m not a fan of organized religion of any kind (it’s been the death and bane of too many people and the irony of that drives me a little crazy), but I do respect others’ rights to their own beliefs as long as they’re not proselytizing. I do think I have a spiritual aspect to my inner self, but it’s closer to that nature-of-the-universe thing I mentioned.

Not much of a cook, but I’m a heck of a kitchen helper – I wash, clean up, slice and chop, and look forward to us preparing some nice meals together. I can handle a grill too (yeah, guess I’m a guy…).

You are a liberal thinker that might have a bohemian streak; thoughtful and self aware; easy going and fun. The state of humankind matters to you. We’ll have lots of good conversations and laughs with some good wine. You enjoy music, books, art, museums, hanging out, a bike ride, Lagoon-Cinema-type movies, staring into a fire on a cold night, having me make a nice Sunday breakfast for us, getting a nice back rub, and my soft kisses on your neck. You would welcome a see-where-the-road-takes-us road trip, and would like to come with me to Spain to visit my daughter, with a side trip to London to tour Abbey Road studios and see the Queen. If our interests don’t all align, that’s OK…we’re individuals after all, and it’s fun to learn about things you don’t already know...am I right? Really looking forward to getting to know you.

Any interest? Well then, put me into your cart and check (me) out.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Trying to live it to its fullest. Want to experience everything I can, and make sure my family and friends know they are loved.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
The quick, witty quip that’s seemingly vague, but actually hits home if you think about it (and I try to not be TOO much of a smart ass).

Logical, analytical thinking (yeah, I know this is boring, but I am good at it).

Picking just the right music for any situation.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
A smile and a laugh.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Read a lot of books about rock and/or roll; currently working on X-Ray by The Kink’s Ray Davies – very cool in that it’s an autobiography, but written in the 3rd person, and provides a true glimpse into the early ‘60’s British Invasion. Enjoying Bossy Pants…I think Tina’s a genius. Next on deck is Game of Thrones (I am embracing my inner geek). I do like novels, but am never sure what’s worthwhile – recommend some to me, please!

Love anything by the Coen Brothers, especially The Big Lebowski; probably my favorite movie. Kind of a documentary junkie (real life is pretty damn interesting sometimes). Classics from the 30’s – 50’s. Thought Stanley Kubrick was pretty amazing in most all of his work. Indie stuff (so glad we have the Lagoon!); Wes Anderson is way cool. I do like (some of the better) big popcorn movies also (a little escapism never hurt anybody).

As for TV, I enjoy the well written series stuff: Mad Men, Breaking Bad, Game of Thrones (there’s that geek again), Dexter. For comedy: Portlandia, 30 Rock (so sorry to see it go), Curb, Louie (been trying to decide if Louie’s actually a “comedy” – it’s pretty subtle and cerebral, IMO – regardless, I enjoy it).

As far as music goes; there is too much to say it all here – I love almost all of it: old jazz (Ella, Billie, Miles, Duke, Benny); so-called “classic rock” – I just think of it as “rock” (almost any British invasion band; the SF bands; and of course, our crazy Uncle Bobby); classical (Beethoven, Mozart, Bach, Wagner); contemporary (and not so contemporary) alternative (just turn on The Current, and listen for an hour – it’s safe to say I’d like 12 of the 15 songs/artists you heard); Americana (Cash, Willie, Lucinda, Emmylou). Punk, Motown, Atlantic/Stax R&B, Minneapolis stuff (TBT - yeah, I know they’re actually from Duluth, but it’s close enough), Cloud Cult, Dessa). I cast a very wide net when it comes to music. I like that I can still be surprised when discovering new (to me) music, but I’m also terrified that I’m may be missing something I should know about.

Upcoming concerts on deck for me are Jane Monheit at The Dakota, Eels, Paul McCartney at Target Field (I’ve never been in the right place at the right time to see him, so I’m excited about this; should be a blast!), Ginger Baker…are you coming with me or what? Recent events I really enjoyed include St. Vincent, Amy Schumer, and The Minnesota Opera’s production of The Magic Flute.

Food? Ah, generally the usual stuff – love good Mexican, Asian (lean more to Thai), Italian, but I have been making a conscious decision to eat healthier, so it’s lucky that I do love good fresh fruits & veggies. An occasional (great) cheeseburger is one of life’s pleasures.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Friends (I have a few close ones that I’ve kept forever, unfortunately most of them are far away).

Music, music, music (did I mention music?).

My three awesome kids that are now three awesome adults; my pride in them knows no bounds.

Laughing ‘til I think I’ll pass out.

The Daily Show/Colbert Report time block. Yeah, I know it’s just faux news, but there are so many truths in there.

Nuzzling my face into the hair of a woman I care about.

Art (yes, I know that’s seven; I can follow directions, I just choose not to in this case; I’m a rebel, you know.)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Why modern humans evolved the way they did. There are so many emotions/drives/traits that are tied to our ancient past. We really are still just cave men & women, in so many ways.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
These days, I hang out, watch a movie, maybe go to a concert, or just chill out from the week. What would I like to be doing? Hanging with you, but of course!
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
That I do have a fear of not finding love again in my life. I have a good life, but it’s definitely missing the smile, companionship, and touch of a woman.
