I'm uninterested the straight suburban civilian life. My life has been an interesting adventure thus far. I have a beard. I like it. I am a equal parts serious and ridiculous. I am unafraid to laugh at myself. I'm better in person than as an internet presence. I enjoy a good story told well. I have had the same best friend for more than 40 years. I have been in Austin for 25 years. I like tacos. Don't leave me alone with yours.
What I’m doing with my life
Being ok with life on life's terms, enjoying little things and hoping interesting things are on the horizon. Turning my house into a work of art. It reflects my obsessions with New Orleans and Mardis, Gras, Dia De Los Muertos, The Cult Of Elvis and music in general. Walking my dog. Meditating. I write a blog about my taco experiences with my friends. I am hopeful it will become a book about year of recovery, tacos and friendship.

Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Just finished Spike Lee's When the Levees Break. I'm rereading Blue Belle by Vaachs, Buckaroo Banzai by Earl Mac Rausch and Refuge Recovery by Noah Levine. I work in a book store. Reading is part of the job or maybe the reason I got the job.
Miles Davis said there are two kinds of music, good music and bad music. I like the good kind. Punk Rock in most of it's forms, Country and Metal Top the list if you need to genrify.

I spend a lot of time thinking about
It's probably a good thing the world doesn't run on my time table.
What happened to my social appropriateness meter? It seems to be
Twice a day I sit on a cushion and try not to think of anything but
my breathing. It's not as easy as it might sound but it makes my
On a typical Friday night I am
Enjoying the quiet or digging the hell out of the noise.
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. I understand that some folks will
find that blasphemous. I'm ok with that.
You should message me if
You like guys with beards. You have tacos. You color outside the lines. I'm looking for someone who hears that different drum. You like a good cup of caffeine and good conversation. You like to share good stories or hear a few told. Tattoos and colored hair and skull obsessions are definitely highly regarded.
