Music is a huge part of my life. It's always been there, gotten me through a lot, and I don't know where I'd be without it. I listen to mainly indie stuff. I could write on forever, so I'll just name a few off the top of my head - Guided by Voices, Explosions in the Sky, Rainer Maria, The Vulgar Boatmen, Jawbreaker, Jets to Brazil, Mary Lou Lord, Mates of State, Blake Babies, Big Star, Teenage Fanclub, The Appleseed Cast, The Ponys, Wesley Willis, Dressy Bessy, Pedro the Lion, the list is endless. Not into the mainstream stuff and consider everything on major labels to be 99 44/100% Ivory Soap Clean pure crap(Yes, Jeff Buckley you are one of the few from keeping it 100% - RIP), and view majors as the Evil Empire. I'm into and admire artists who put out what they want and are not conformed to change things just to sell records, etc... The official video for "From the Devil Himself" by Viva Voce pretty much sums it up, check it out: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OvU8JS8b_uo
I Love discovering new bands(I mean I have a ton of shit, but there's still so much more out there I haven't heard and would enjoy, you just have to find it) and going to shows. Seeing a show every night sounds like a great way of spending the rest of my life. My favorite spots are the Beachland and the Grog Shop. I'm into seeing shows at smaller places like these and not huge venues, besides odds are anything I want to see isn't at big places anyways.
I wouldn't say I like to argue, but have "spirited debates" with anyone over such things as religion, music, tv/film, etc... to such trivial or silly things as which fast food place has the best fries or which girl was the biggest idiot on "Rock of Love" for actually thinking Brett Michaels is cool & wanting to be with him. Sometimes though, when having these debates with people I find so narrow minded, even if I may agree with their point of view, I'll take the opposing just to show them not everything is so black and white.
Dress wise you'll normally find me wearing vintage shirts, jeans, and my pair of solid blue Vans, and I hit the thrift stores at least once a week. No cruising to the mall to get the latest fads from Abercrombie for this dude. Definitely, not a suit or tie guy either, never owned one and I think I have two ties for if I have to go to like a wedding or something. I'll never consider myself a "Mr." and it's very strange to me when I hear it said, I'm just Dave.
Relationship wise some people say "opposites attract", that's really not my bag. Yeah, some girl with a mullet showing up for a date wearing a John Deer hat, Nickelback shirt & camo pants, whose favorite saying is "Git Er Done" may sound extremely enticing, but I'm gonna have to pass. I'm looking for someone very much like myself. Don't get me wrong, I'm not wanting someone who looks exactly like myself with just a cute little "bob cut" or something, I don't think I'd make a very attractive woman. You know, someone who has similar views & interests and just knows how to have fun. The kind of person who you can have a kick ass time with at a show, or just have the same amount of fun going to the grocery store with, someone who connects. Oh, and I'm not a fan of clowns, so if you've got the makeup caked on so much that a chisel is required to see your face again, we're probably not a match, and yes this means you as well Juggalettes.
Honesty and being straight up with people is very important to me. That's why if you haven't already noticed I left the smokes and drugs details blank. I used to socially smoke while drinking but I've been using those Blu Cigs electronic cigarettes for a while now and excuse my French, but they're PUTAIN DE AWESOME!!!. It's great to not have to go outside of the bar or club anymore when I want one. Also, once in a blue moon I might smoke some pot. Like maybe if some friends have some when their listening to some cool tunes or watching Spinal Tap. Like I said it's not very often at all, but they don't have an option for that and "never" wouldn't have been entirely correct either.
