One activity would be First or Last Friday Art Walks in Topeka and Lawrence. I have a strong Art background and have had some work on display in the Topeka NOTO area. I have 2 degrees in Art from ESU in Emporia. [BA was with KSTC before the name change]
Another activity would be to find folks who would want to watch my DVD collection with me. Things I have seen many times are more fun with company.
I have some Drama , A lot of Science Fiction and Sci Fi [points if you know the difference], Anime, like Spirited Away and Howl's Moving castle, Ghost in The Machine and other titles with very good art and animation. Asian Fantasy and Chinese Kung Fu that are not just beat 'em up flicks. Some are actually good dramas.
Old B&W movies, Bogart, a lot of William Powell, including all the Thin Man series, etc. Some old westerns, including comic ones,like Cat Balou, and Big Hand For A Little Lady.
Babylon 5, Buffy, Star Trek, CSI [the 1st] and Law and Order.
Old TV shows like Perry Mason - some of the best drama that was ever on TV, The Man From Uncle, Patrick McGoohan in Danger man [Secret Agent Man in US]. Am I the only one to remember The Challengers? 3 British agents who crashed in the Himalayas and were 'remade' to have powers? It was in the USA one summer around 1969 along with The Avengers. yes, I have The Avengers, too.
"You can tell that a guy has no girlfriend by the fact that he has no sofa." That's me. Chairs only.
Let's be friends or at least acquaintances with the same interests.
The last 1st date I had via OKCupid was an Art Walk with a woman who was shorter than me but who walked almost twice as fast as I did and who disappeared on her own in the crowded galleries. If she did not think I looked like someone she wanted to date, I would have enjoyed it if she had just told me. For the Art Walks I would like to be with someone with no pressure, just 2 folks who enjoy art.
Lately, I get comments on the beard I have been growing.
Classic movies like Casablanca and anything with Loy and Powell.
--Peaceful electronica, loud 60's rock. Loud electronica, softer 60's rock. Individual singer/songwriters like Happy Rhodes, Tori Amos; and if you like KaTe Bush, we will be friends forever.
-- Science Fiction books (surprise!) Mysteries. Esoterica - physics/mind connections and if there are any. Histories that are interesting. Simple books like Ray Bradbury's stuff. Thicker reading like Eco's Foucault's Pendulum. Uncle Scrooge comics: yes, I said it!
