In the interest of full dis-claim-osure... I tend to get long-winded in written form. (This is not the case in physical form... in-person I fall more on the side of quiet-to-regular winded-ness.) With this in mind... I have re-configured my profile into something more akin to a bullet-pointed list, albeit I have maintained a few moments that completely blow (you know, like the a fore mentioned wind). Anyway... Enjoy!
I used to identify myself as first-and-foremost, an Artist... however... due to a whirlwind of life events... being a Dad has overtaken that first-and-foremostedness. That being said... as my time as a parent is shared... I (should) have plenty leftover to be an Artist. My need to be creative has never waned... but my time management and energy cache is lacking at times. I'm working on it.
I support myself by being a regular `ol "9-5er". I never ever EVER saw myself taking this path, but... in order to feed and house me and the kid... compromises need to be made. Lucky for me... the "real-job" is not a terribly painful compromise. It is in my field and for the most part I like it. BUT... no matter how responsible I'm trying to be... OR... how much I like eating... I would still rather being carrying on that romantic tradition/fallacy of the Artist spending day/night in the studio cranking out work.
I have a good to great sense of humor... I am witty... smart... polite (thanks Ma)... honest AND sincere... open-minded... fun/funny... generally maybe kind of shy... and sometimes quiet-ish.
The only thing I like more than laughing... making other people laugh. Preferably "with me" and not "at me"... but either is fine.
The NEED to Knows:
-I suffer from a life-long battle with nostalgia.
-I enjoy good TV, movies, and music... however... I do occasionally indulge in BAD music, movies, and TV.
-I wear jeans and t-shirts but can and will clean-up nicely from time to time.
-I appreciate culture, sub-culture, AND pop culture equally.
-I like to shop but recently I have trouble with the purchasing part.
-I have been told I have style... albeit... my own style.
-I like chachkis, kitsch, flea markets, and antique malls.
-I collect and save things for reasons I am not always aware of.
-I usually have some version of a mustache/beard... and it's seasonal.
-I sometimes watch and/or attend sporting events.
-I have two dogs of the Chihuahua mix variety... they are adorable... but they are also assholes.
-I generally like to keep my life/space need-and-tidy... you know... like organized, but... there are a few areas of my life/space that have become an embarrassing mess. Someday I will clean that shit up... I will.
-I have a shoe collection that is bigger than yours. I have "paired" it down in recent years... but It is still bigger than yours.
Oh yeah, and...
-I have a kid... he is 5... and he is Rad.
