My self-summary
Music and bikes. All day every day. Throw some books and art in there somewhere.

I love Philly, but grew up in the woods of New England. I am working towards a plan so I can have the city and country in my life, equally.
What I’m doing with my life
Teaching Pennsylvania youngins the fine art of clapping in rhythm, and the difference between a sousaphone and a saxophone.

New: Prepping for a new full time teaching gig in the fall. K-8 Elementary music. My principal seems supportive of the arts so I plan to take over the world with a Kindergarten Kazoo Choir and Bucket Drums.

Old: I teach (taught) drumline and run the recording studio at a high school in North Philly. I am convinced that all high schoolers have un-diagnosed ADHD... Now add drums to this equation. I love my kids but let's just say this job has taught me to cut to the chase.
I’m really good at
Strumming steel strings and hitting objects in a musical manner.

Giving overly enthusiastic kids side-hugs that are just shy of a headlock.

Cooking. Although I am no longer veg I can still make a bangin veg chilli.

Making stuff:
I like to do-it-myself, from woodworking to fixing stuff at home. A friend and I are in the planning stages for making a cabin in the woods. For the everyday, not doomsday.

Listening. Nope, not just saying that one for brownie points. I love to hear about other people's day.
The first things people usually notice about me
Ninjas don't get noticed.

...till too late.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books - Hemingway, Burroughs, Cormac McCarthy, Tom Robbins, Phillip K Dick, Sylvia Plath, Noam Chomsky, John Zerzan, Lewis Mumford.

90's Image/DC/Marvel, Harvey Pekar, Calvin and Hobbes. Not so up to date on current comics but always looking for good indie comic suggestions.

Music - anything and everything. No really, from classical to country to free-jazz to death metal. Currently: Cat Power, Will Oldham, Al Green, John Fahey, Gnarls Barkley, Magnolia Electric Co., Cult of Luna, the Melvins, Big Business, Notorious BIG, and lots of jazz.

You don't have to actively like metal or hardcore or noisier stuff but don't mind if it's on sometimes to deal with a rough day, or get some cleanin done son.

TV: Parks and Rec, The Office, Breaking Bad (give them all the Emmys), The Wire, Deadwood, and the old Arrested Development.
The six things I could never do without
A bike.
My close friends/family.
A cast iron pan
Some books (a few light reads, a few heavy theory).
Some sort of percussion instrument (which I suppose the pan could double as).
A Guitar.

I tend to see this question as a deserted island list. Anything else I would form out of coconut husks and sea shells. Primitive backwood crafting yo.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
The difference between tweakin, twakin and twerking.

Having a beer with Scott Franzke and Larry Anderson.

How Chooch got that cheek scar...
On a typical Friday night I am
Friday is officially Taco Night. You do like tacos right? Who doesn't like tacos? Even communists like tacos.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Real men snuggle.

I ride a fixed geared mountain bike. Yep, they exist.
Nope, I haven't broken anything... yet.
I’m looking for
  • Girls who like guys
  • Ages 25–38
  • Near me
  • Who are single
  • For new friends, long-term dating, short-term dating
You should message me if
You aren't afraid of a little dirt or paint or ink under the fingernails.

I'd love to meet someone who frequently bolts out of bed to jot down an idea, write a song, or make some art cuz it just can't wait till morning, and yet still understands that creativity and stability are not diametrically opposed.

Fellow teachers get brownie points. No, it's not some kind of job-snobbery thing; it just means we'd have similar schedules, and (hopefully) get that some nights you need to rant and rave, and other nights a long stretch of silence is the only solution to a bad day. However, the flip side is I love hearing the inside scoop on jobs I would never do. How's that for flip-floppin?

Ladies who can kick my ass at Scrabble, but won't rub it in too bad...

So at the end of the day, yeah it's cool to meet new people on OKC, but I have plenty of friends. More is good. But I am looking for a partner in the long run. My folks just celebrated their 45th anniversary, so I had a decent example of working through the thick and the thin. In the age of infinite choice and instant gratification, that means something to me.

And lastly, if you want to ride some bikes.
