For a rank amateur, i'd like to think I'm pretty good at photography, guitar, and cooking. i've recently started making little wood projects with a router, as well, though i'm really at a beginner level there.
I like playing and recording guitar music, bike riding, going on trips, taking pictures, cooking and listening to music (at the same time, that is; throw in a beer, maybe, and that's perfection).
Maybe also the fact that i'm fairly quiet, until I get really excited about something, at which point I am NOT quiet.
My hair can be pretty striking, too, depending on the humidity.
I haven't done much pleasure reading in the last few years, but I loved The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy. I like Thoreau, and Stephen King's short stories. I just spent a lot of time reading Michel Foucault for school. That was great, and I enjoyed "Discipline and Punish" most of all (it's about prisons and political power, not BDSM). I love Wallace Stevens. I like Rilke a lot, though i haven't spent a lot of time on him.
I would lose my mind without Netflix. It has brought me Archer, Top Gear, 30 Rock, Parks and Recreation, Bob's Burgers, Portlandia, Adventure Time, and A Bit of Fry and Laurie. I was Ron Swanson for Halloween last year. I wrote a speech, made a breakfast utility belt out of Tupperware, and ate the food I carried in it. The second season of Little Britain is delightfully horrendous.
1/9/14 - I just discovered Mad Men. I don't want to emulate any of the characters, but that show is a work of art. Halfway through the first season, totally hooked.
I don't know how the music I like really fits together, but let's say i like classic rock, the blues, prog rock, and some acoustic, folk and experimental stuff. Some, not much. I have never once found myself getting tired of Led Zeppelin, Jimi Hendrix, or Stevie Ray Vaughan. I have seen Rush in concert five times. Neil Peart stands alone.
Lately, i've been listening to Bill Frisell, J.J. Cale, and Springsteen's "Nebraska" album.
Fans of Opeth, Porcupine Tree, Steven Wilson, and Bass Communion should definitely write.
I'm not a big movie buff. The answer to "have you seen…" is almost definitely "no."
I just have other interests (that said, Star Wars, LOTR, The Big Lebowski, Easy Rider and Ghostbusters are near and dear to my heart).
My favorite foods are pizza, hummus (a term I use loosely), Indian, Thai, deli sandwiches and Irish pub food.
Most of my close friends are very busy, so it's tricky to plan things, but I love getting together with them at a bar, in someone's yard or living room, or wherever.
You should message if (1) that describes you, or (2) you know the source of the quote and love it as much as I do.
I'm open to whatever you're looking for, in principle, but i'm a little old for games. If you can't make a date and keep it, don't bother.
