Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Native Multi-generational Texan. I have a punk rock soul and a
honky tonk heart. I'm looking for things exceptional in all areas
of life. I'm more interested in good experiences than fancy
possessions. That said, nothing's better than a great pair of
beautiful boots. In some ways my entire life has been an attempt to
duplicate the feeling of hearing the Clash for the first time,
because in that moment I understood transcendence perfectly. I dig
therefore I am. I don't drink or smoke or do drugs but I have
plenty of fun. Iconoclast seeks real connection with real human.
I'm partial to ladies with tattoos and rockin style.
I like this quote from Warren Zevon. "Enjoy every sandwich."
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Trying to keep the unnecessary from overwhelming the important.
Plotting where to hide the evidence. Wondering if I am the only
person that looks at a whole profile before sending someone a
message. Figuring out how to translate the real me digitally.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Finding information, answers and solutions. I make really good
cornbread. I've done a lot in life, a whole lot. It's been a great
ride. Now I'm living to tell the tale and looking for the next
adventure. I have a lot pretty good stories to tell. I tell them

I work in a book store. I read a lot. I prefer trashy fiction
because I am an escapist reader: Zombies, Apocalypses, Vampires,
Crime Fiction, Westerns. I worked in the music business for a long
time at a reasonably serious level. I love country and punk more
than anything else but I can hold my own with anything that is
good. Supersuckers are next on my live music agenda. I like live
music and most months I catch 2 or 3 shows but my tolerance for
crowds diminishes regularly. I watch a lot of movies, particularly
documentaries and westerns. I actually collect westerns and music
documentaries on DVD. I eat a lot of Mexican food. I used to be a
vegetarian. I mostly eat veggie now but I love fried chicken more
than most people love breathing. I can write you a novel on why
Gus's is the best fried chicken in Austin hands down. I read. I
Watch. I listen. I eat. I can talk about any of these or all of
them simultaneously. Bonus points to anyone who knows and loves
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Android pocket computer
reasonable set of speakers
time to reflect
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Where the best cheese enchiladas are. What is the next right thing
to do? Have I been grateful for what I have?
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Working and relaxing after. My "weekend" happens mid-week for
non-retail people. Tonight I ate chocolate ice cream, talked to my
dog, watched True Grit and re-answered these questions.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit

I've seen several thousand bands live. I'm beginning to prefer
recorded music to live music.
