Recently, I'm trying to engage in activities I've either never done
or am not totally comfortable with. Like this. I grew up moving
every 6 to 18 months. Because of that I tend to have a few very
close friends, but am comfortable alone. I like myself, I'm a good
person. Slight comic book nerd. Somebody recently told me that I
was "built like a linebacker". But since they don't have those in
Quidditch, the info was kind of lost on me. I like laughing more
than almost anything on this planet. I love animals. I consider
myself quite spiritual, not religious.
What I’m doing with my life
I co-own a business, that keeps me busy. Practicing martial arts.
I've been taking a lot of two day vacation/road trips by myself. I
want to go skydiving as though it were critical to my survival.
I've been thinking of taking up archery. And no, I have not seen or
read The Hunger Games.
I’m really good at
I'm told I'm a masterful hugger. That could translate to cuddling
with the right conditions. I mean, you hug at an airport but
generally no cuddling. I make great coffee.
The first things people usually notice about me
I'm familiar to them. No idea. That's just what people tell me.
That, and I look younger than I am. I'm also a pretty big guy.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
The Soul of Sex. Catcher in the Rye, All the Pretty Horses, Cities
of the Plain and Libra are some of my favorite books. Most Cormac
McCarthy, David Sedaris and Don Delillo.
Miyazaki and other foreign cinema. Fantasy. But also martial art
and other dumb action movies. Terrence Malick is probably my
favorite director of all time.
Twin Peaks, The Wire, Arrested Development, Mystery Science Theater
3000 and other shows no longer around.
New music all the time. More recent diet is eL-P, Roxy Music, Nick
Cave and the Bad Seeds, Chromatics, Twin Shadow, Other Lives, Poni
Hoax, Mew and We Love. Hip hop, but mostly underground. Lots more
britpop than the average straight male, probably.
The six things I could never do without
I can do without a lot. But I really like coffee. My car. I love to
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Music, falling out of an airplane, being on a ship in the middle of
the ocean. What life would be like on different worlds.
On a typical Friday night I am
Dancing, home with cat or at martial arts class.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I ordered a pizza for carry out about 40 minutes ago. Completely
forgot about it. I love Electric Light Orchestra and don't care who
You should message me if
If you feel like you should. Or just want to.
