Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Finishing an important documentary while finding all kinds of

I live my life by the rules of Kramer.

some biography mixed with Steve Reich, followed by some Charlie
Kaufman or Shane Carruth and a long MB sesh.
Alternately, lead with Bertolucci or Haneke or even Pasolini. Then
comes the MB sesh, accompanied by alanis. Catch up on some
unabashedly gay memoir. Built up an appetite and feel lazy after
all that so go out for something spicy or exotic with a real
margarita. Dancing with minimal acoustic electro. And don't forget
the night cap- Seinfeld or Kevin Spacey.

After drunkenly hooking up with someone in a park that was closed
for the night, I climbed the tall fence to get out, using a
neighboring tree for support.
As I stood atop the metal precipice, my partner in crime shouted up
a warm warning at me: be careful man, that's really high!
I leapt down to my demise: an ankle injury putting me on crutches
for weeks, not to mention the embarrassment needing his help to
limp home. The thing I shouted back at him, just before

I'm always skeptical of people whose dating profile default pic is
a group shot. Since, well, it's a dating site, and the idea is to
find someone who likes you, not you friends. I'm also generally
upfront. For the Germans that's normal but for the Americans it can
be... surprising :P
I'm not sure what makes me good at first dates, though it's a great
question. Probably practice? lol. (there's that self deprecating
tendency...) .... I'm great at speaking with strangers, getting to
know someone quickly, turning awkwardness into fun, and being blunt
and direct. So, it's usually a fun adventure, for the first drink,
though beyond that of course, neither of us is ever
