What matters to me is what I could be to just one girl...
I'm always thinking, I find I am, a Mind that never sleeps, a Hopeless Romantic, a Dreamer of better days, a Man, just a Man trying to walk down the cold bent sidewalk of life.
I feel an attraction to and solace in nostalgia, the way things use to be. I collect albums on Record, Cassette, Reel to Reel and 8-Track, and I'm very serious about it. Nothing beats the range, presence, and Warmth of an analog recording. I hate I-pods and compressed digital music (mp3...). Additionally I collect films on, CED Videodisc and Laserdisc.
I greatly admire the late-60's,70's and the 80's, the people that know me always say I look like I came from the past, as well I know more about before I was born than my own time on earth. I sort of despise the 90's and the current culture.
I always enjoy a good beer, normally the expensive stuff, the "real" beer connoisseur's beer,...REAL taste, (strong & dark/malty); Westvletern XII, Guinness, Weihenstephaner Vitus/Hefeweissbier Dunkel, Kostriker, Hacker-Pschorr Dunkle Weisse, & Leffe Brune.
Today seems so un-virtuosic and lame, I despise current pop culture and hate popular music. And country (for other reasons).
In all past relationships(or, exercises in immaturity), I ended up being trampled on and dragged through the dirt. Heart breakers; your thirst is not mine. Looking for someone who is mature in regard to a relationship, I really need to know someone before I can consider to bestow trust upon them, even though "I want to trust people".
I find nothing more attractive than beautiful eyes of a woman. And a woman that would just relax with me while listening to an entire progressive rock album... I'm dreaming,.. are you the type that would enjoy listening to a well composed 23 minute song or a 1+ hour concept album?
I do NOT have Facebook, I have no need. I feel, I should be concentrating my engergy within real life, Facebook often becomes more powerful than your own actions in real life...which is insane, and if you cannot be my friend because I don't have Facebook than you do not deserve to be my friend. Talk is cheap, it is our real life actions that make us all we are.
WAIT did I mention my name is, Tyler
I am Cynical, Loyal, and Hell Bent
I had ended a five year employment at a Fine dining Italian Restaurant, where I was a Line Cook / Chef, it was something that I had lost lust in doing, and I wanted to keep it as something I would still enjoy doing for myself (and a special someone hopefully).
On my own time I collect various things, from Vintage concert T-shirts to pocket watches, I like to preserve obscure history.
The spice must flow...
Mainly because I dress uniquely, I wear what I like, which is often various past styles and fashion. Black, black tag 510 Levi's Skinny-fit jeans, a pair of Stacy Adams Madison dress boots. I have a fascination with vintage jackets, I use ammo boxes to carry my belongings. I often wear solids or mainly just black (My favourite colour maybe Crimson Red, cause Black is not a colour, the absence of actually).
I have long hair and it often looks different from day to day, whether I style it or not etc... combed, tied and sometimes strightened. No facial hair, I shave regularly, and yes I do own a pair of tweezers.
My personality is hard to analyze, I'm normally recluse/quiet to begin. I change often between polar opposites, introvert and extrovert. I guess it depends on how eccentric I feel on a particular day.
I'm Science in Stereo.
The greatest piece of cinema ever made: Blade Runner, this film is by so far my favourite that nothing even comes close. I always like a good movie including; Drive, Dune, Beyond the Black Rainbow, Tron Legacy, Sleepy Hollow, Deep Red (Profondo Rosso), Heavy Metal, Black Swan, original three Star Wars, Legend, The Dark Crystal, The Terminal, Zoolander, The Fifth Element, Donnie Darko, Taxi Driver, Labyrinth, Night At The Roxbury, The Beatles in HELP!, and many more...
Shows: Miami Vice, the best television show ever...but maybe more fairly, Carl Sagan's The Cosmos.
Music is my ambrosia, the genres I really enjoy are, Progressive/Art Rock, Metal, Psychedelic Rock, and Early Synth. I enjoy Metal (mainly 80's) but I'm a little more complex than just metal. I like to Relax to the Avant-garde genres, but primarily I listen to Progressive Rock, nothing moves me more than the ominous sustain of a Mellotron. I could go on forever but to name a few artists/bands I can't live without; Genesis, King Crimson, Pink Floyd, Van Der Graaf Generator, Iron Maiden, Mercyful Fate, Def Leppard, Judas Priest, Ratt, Scorpions, Black Sabbath, Kaleidoscope (U.K.), Dream Theater, Opeth, The Beatles, Gandalf, The Zombies, The Moody Blues, Yes, Asia, ELP, Gentle Giant, Le Orme, Renaissance, Astra, Led Zeppelin, Blue Oyster Cult, Rush, Hawkwind, Queen, The Alan Parsons Project, Journey, Saga, ELO, David Bowie, Billy Idol, Duran Duran, Missing Persons, Naked Eyes, Tears For Fears, The Police, Dire Straits, Kraftwerk, Tangerine Dream, Chromatics, Gun, Neil Young, Vangelis, The Fixx, Boston, Tame Impala, The Cars, Beach Boys, Ultravox, April Wine, Red Rider, Steely Dan, Foreigner, Roxy Music, and...
I absolutely adore Roxy Music's album Avalon, beautiful, just beautiful. "Sometimes I get so blue, People say I'm just a fool. All the world, even you, Should learn to love the way I do".
I'm completely enamoured with the psychedelic album Gandalf (1968). It is something special I will hold dear untill my last day.
Die hard GENESIS Fan
Die hard PINK FLOYD Fan (quiz me, why don't you?)
Food: Eventhough I can cook and I love a well made meal, I've been known as picky, I don't like seafood, butter/margarine, mayonnaise, milk and most cheese... Shame?
(In no particular order) My:
-Classic Car (1984 Cutlass Supreme Brougham), Well I have to do without my baby somehow, it was totaled 6 days into this season, I survived, she did not... 29 years young, 94,000 kms. I will never forget her and I will never forgive the woman who carelessly drove across a highway meters away from me. My newly acquired replacement is a 1985 Cutlass Supreme Coupe, again showroom of course.
-Cassette Walkman(s) (Sony WM-F10,WM-10II, WM-R202, WM-F203 & WM-150)
-8-Track player (Pioneer H-R100) and Tapes
-Record Player (Sansui FR-D3) and Records
-Gaspar 2204 English Tan driving gloves
-Sunglasses (original Bausch & Lomb RayBan Wayfarers II)
The importance of what truly makes us human; empathy... love.
And why so many people are inhuman.
Really just, Too Much...
Going to a get-together and having some drinks or staying up late with a few drinks and falling asleep watching Blade Runner...
If you are a genuine person, have good intentions and want to know me more(and me to know you likewise). And above all you would do anything for true love... It is unbelievable how many shallow people on this site write something like, "If your sexy or hot", it SCREAMS their lack of true character and inability to mature into adulthood...
