I'm looking for someone to share all the best things in life--which in my book pretty much means spending equal time exploring, creating, and spending time with great people.
Among other things I truly dig are...
Long conversations, people who like telling tales (tall or otherwise...)
I like guys who can make me laugh. Bet I can make you laugh too.
I direct films for live concerts (the ones that go behind the musicians while they're playing). I also edit professionally for features, web, and commercials--and I teach a high school film class as well.
Making Spanish tortilla w/o getting egg on the walls.
Knowing where to find things like 19th Century spectacles, and horses that are trained to pull stagecoaches.
Random, mostly useless phrases in other languages.
Finding cool vintage clothing. Identifying the year of an old movie based on fashion.
The Coen Brothers, PT Anderson, Agnes Varda, Altman, Mike Leigh.
I have a huge noir obsession, so if you like going to the Egyptian and stuff, that's great.
Favorite Books: Wuthering Heights, Don Quixote, LA Confidential, Murakami, Geek Love, Flannery O'Connor, Raymond Chandler, Beloved, Wilkie Collins, Borges. Reading and loving The Flamethrowers right now.
Music: Miles Davis, Patsy Cline, Pulp, Bessie Smith, Sigur Ros.
I like my music with a good, healthy dose of raw emotion in it, so I find that runs the gamut of anything from blues, to punk, to 60s psychadelia, to country.
Favorite TV: The Sopranos, House of Cards, Breaking Bad, Twin Peaks.
2) Santa Ana Winds.
3) Smell of rain on cement.
4) Driving at night.
5) Sea air.
Or a bar. Preferably the kind that has a neon sign, isn't too crowded, and knows how to make a dirty martini.
