My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Musician, father, philosopher, and poet.

Okay, I was just joking about the poet part. The last "poem" I wrote was a limerick about ten years ago. I kind of liked it, though.

Actually I'm not even sure about the philosopher part. Maybe pseudo-philosopher? I dunno.

I am definitely a musician and father, though. I spend a lot of my time hitting things with sticks of wood. And I also play the drums.

Fun fact: the Foo Fighters opened for my first rock band on the very first club gig they ever did (it was just kind of a fluke thing). I just got an e-mail from some fellow at Britain's NME magazine asking to interview me about it, since they're doing a story on the 20th anniversary of the Foo Fighters first gig. Man, I feel old now...
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Trying to polish my approach (the endeavor seems to be an unending one). Spending time with my 17 year old son. Playing drums a lot.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Reading, writing, and arithmetic (I was one of those nerdy academic types that seemed to do well at school, even though there were glaring gaps in my skill set in other areas), drumming, empathy, and listening.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Probably that I laugh a lot.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books: Tolkien, Jane Austen, Dostoyevsky, Douglas Adams, John Dominic Crossan, Thich Nhat Hanh, Cervantes, Don Martin. I used to read voraciously as a kid, but I read less so now, mainly because most of my spare time is taken up with musical activities. When I do read, it's mostly non-fiction these days.

Movies: This is Spinal Tap (natch), Wings of Desire, Bullets Over Broadway, Gosford Park, Shattered Glass, Amadeus, Round Midnight, Waiting for Guffman, Office Space, Bowfinger (this one has gained me some ridicule, but I unashamedly proclaim it to be awesome), Blue Valentine (despite being one of the more painful movie-watching experiences of my life), and Groundhog Day.

I don't watch TV much these days. My favorite TV show is probably the Office (when Steve Carell was still on it). Other past favorites include Flight of the Conchords, Seinfeld, and Monty Python's Flying Circus. I also like Curb Your Enthusiasm and Louie.

Music: A lot of older stuff--jazz, blues, rock, soul/funk/R&B. I haven't paid too close attention to pop music of the last 20 years or so, which is a bit embarrassing, but not quite enough for me to start listening to top 40 radio. Some of my favorites are Otis Redding, Van Morrison, Clifford Brown, Mississippi John Hurt, Sonny Rollins, and John Coltrane.

I've been mostly a vegetarian for about four years. The only time I eat fish is occasionally with sushi, which is probably my favorite food. I love all sorts of food--Mexican, Thai, Vietnamese, Indian, Italian, German, Ethiopian, Chinese, etc.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Laughter, family, books, music.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
How fortunate I am; how I can help other people who aren't as fortunate as I am; how to not waste so much time; what motivates others; what motivates myself; whether I've done a decent job of preparing my son for success in life. Oh, and also the drums. I think about the drums a lot.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
I'm often performing music on Friday nights (one the hazards of the job). When I'm not doing that, I'm usually spending time with friends and/or my progeny, or maybe I'm on a date.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
Any and all messages are welcome (since I'm a guy, fortunately I can say that without running the risk of being deluged with a mountain of inappropriate and crude comments; I don't envy you women in this regard).
