New York City. The hurricane of humanity. The world's largest outdoor psychiatric ward. Except for a black hole, no other place in the universe so perfectly mirrors the quiet, raging chaos that constantly swirls within the fleshy pile of random crap sitting behind the back of these eyes. With a population density of sixty thousand peopler per square mile, we're practically stepping on each other the minute we step out of bed. Yet these millions of shiny, noisy, constantly moving dots, do little to alleviate the sensation that you may as well be floating in outer space. You know the feeling I'm talking about. That sudden pang of awareness that you're essentially living in an emotional vacuum. Fun, ain't it?
This is my particular story of f*cked up mindless chaos. It's probably not much different than yours. Well, maybe it's slightly more entertaining to watch than that youtube video of the screaming goat. Enjoy.
Now it's time for some random quotes (because nothing represents me better than something someone else said!):
“Ah, computer dating. It’s like pimping but you rarely have to use the phrase ‘upside your head’.” -- Bender Bending Rodríguez
"If there is a God, he will have to beg for my forgiveness."
- Found written on the wall of a prison cell, Mathausen concentration
"This is what I want. I want total exhaustion from tasks that are outside of my skill set. I want my determination and anger to focus my energy. This is not an easy way to go, and it might not be good for one's constitution, but at least I don't feel old."
"I'm the product of 6 million years of evolution? Come on, man. I crawled out of a swamp yesterday." - Pete Steele
"I take responsibility for absolutely nothing, except for the fact that I take responsibility for absolutely nothing. Kinda Zen, if you think about it." - Wylie Times, 100 Bullets
and last, but not least: "Chicks = Trouble" - Nikki Sixx, Heroin Diaries
Aggressive, rebellious, intellectual. Born and raised New Yorker (NO! SLEEP! TILL BROOKLYN! \m/>_<\m/...sorry, I'll be normal now.) of Egyptian descent. I do and say what I want, when I want, and make no apologies. I live life by my rules, and I make them up as I go along. I'm a bit of a gambler in life. Many times luck is my friend. Sometimes it's not. I take risks, make mistakes, "Fuck up", but refuse to lament when shit hits the fan. I live life on my own terms, and accept the costs thereof. Think you can handle me? Then play your hand and lets see who's got the Ace...
Believe it or not, you're a machine. Everyone is a machine. My take on dating is that people are very similar to cars. Just because it looks great, makes all the right noises, and practically floats when you drive it off the lot, doesn't mean that there aren't gremlins under the hood waiting for you to drop your guard. In other words, I believe in taking the time to understand what drives a person, and more importantly, how the inner machinations of their mind aid or impede them in moving forward. If you're not willing to put in a lot more effort than just looking at the paint job, popping open the hood for a few minutes and kicking the tires, you're putting yourself on the road to disaster. I'll stop with the car puns now.
I'm an engineer (explains a lot, right?) and a construction project manager. The phrase, "it can't be done" is not in my vocabulary. However, the phrase "it can't be done SAFELY" is something I say on a fairly regular basis, usually from behind the safety of some kind of barricade. My intent is to eventually break into upper management without having to become a workaholic.
I am for the most part a regular "dude", with a regular job, who has not so regular friends and family. I strive to be a better man than I was yesterday, even if only by some minute detail. I enjoy training in martial arts, karaoke, singing and playing guitar in open mic nights around Manhattan, billiards, and the occasional bowling (though I'm terrible at it). I have a penchant for being hilariously awkward at just the right (or wrong, depending on your viewpoint) time. Being a walking encyclopedia of 80s and 90s pop culture references doesn't exactly help. Some think it's a gift. I think its just good luck and bad timing.
I like occasionally watching major sports games with friends, but I'm no sports expert or junkie by any means. Just enjoy getting together and watching/hanging out with friends.
To make a long story short, I have a wide range of music and entertainment tastes. If you're interested in getting to know me, we can discuss the specifics in person. If not, meh, no hard feelings, we all have our preferences.
That's all folks. Good night, and good luck.
