Native New Yorker...born in Spanish Harlem...now can be found
somewhere on Spring Street. Four eyes...two of them usually
orange...strong sense of self & personal style...sometimes
absurd sense of humor, Art School Grad, self employed in the Music
Industry with a disregard for the 9-5 lifestyle. I get exercised
when I'm late for work. Guess that alone sums up a lot. Enjoy
reading profiles of women who are "65+ % enemy" to see if we might
really try to kill each other while stuck in a elevator together.
The seemingly obligatory shirtless bathroom pic taken with my phone
What I’m doing with my life
Worked with the same person for from 1988 - 2006 helping to make
the world a better sounding place. One guitar amplifier at a time.
Very happy but far from complacent. Otherwise, I'm trying to find
someone who'll help me buy some donuts, steal a Police Car and go
I’m really good at
Diplomacy, arguing (constructively) Thinking: having toys like
Chemistry Set & Erector Set when I was kid instead of Play
Station might have something to do with it? Chaos Management.
Shooting pool...shooting straight, "showing up"
The first things people usually notice about me
5 different people could give 5 different answers. Otherwise, not
looking my age seems to come up a lot. Especially when I get
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Live to eat not eat to live. Guess that means in modern termonology
I'm a foodie, but my friends have a better relationship with the
wine in my bar than I do. Pulp Fiction, The Ghost Writer, Kill Bill
l & ll. If I watch TV, prefer stuff like Biographies &
History Channel, Family Guy too. Sunday New York Times, books on
Pop Culture, Photography & Architecture + literature that makes
my head hurt (like Toni Morrison's Playing in The Dark), WNYC FM
Radio, Miss MY MTV from the 80's when it was about music videos,
love old TV footage of music performances like Old Grey Whistle
Test. Soul Train for the clothes & dance line alone makes me
smile. Always curious about what others are listening to. Here's
where I get cut off ? - Massive Attack, Portishead, Electric Miles
Davis (saw him 4th row), The Stones, The Who, Motown, Burt
Bacharach/Hal David, Joy Division/New Order, The Cure, Peter
Gabriel, Nigerian Funk from the 70's, Rickie Lee Jones, Nashville,
Steely Dan, Iggy & The Stooges, Fleetwood Mac, Joni Mitchell,
Public Enemy, Elington/Strayhorn, most Radiohead, Wayne Shorter,
Curtis Mayfield, Sly & The Family Stone, King Crimson, Dylan
(Oh Mercy is so overlooked AND beyond well recorded), Black
Sabbath, Justin Beiber...just making sure you're still paying
attention, Deep Purple/Rainbow, prefer Nina Simone over Billie
Holiday (shoot me), Metric, Luna, Muse, The Cars, Chic/Nile
Rodgers, Queen, David Bowie...
The six things I could never do without
Brunch with a rotating crowd of interesting new people, Exceptional
Pizza, Vacuum Tubes (Wikipedia search this one?) Vinyl...Sex, Drugs
& Rock n' Roll.....that's seven. Math clearly not a strong
point...lose the drugs and a more interesting list would be things
I CAN do without!
I spend a lot of time thinking about
What might have existed before the "Big Bang" or "God Creating
himself...herself...itself..." - Excessive wear on my vinyl and if
it's in fact time to have the stylus on my turntable's cartridge
re-tipped. If you're primary source of music is a i-Pod, you might
not understand this neurosis...when did common courtesy became
something of a novelty, how to make even better Cornbread Pancakes.
On a typical Friday night I am
Trying to steal a Police Car to go joy riding
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I know where the government hides UFO's.
You should message me if
Anything I've said made you say hmmm...if you have a Foreign
Accent...love some of the "six things I can't do without" as much
as I do...if you're willing to help steal a Police Car to go joy
riding...c'mon, you saw that coming, didn't you?
