I defy summarization, and probably require first-person experience to either begin to grasp, or make you flee in terror. I spend more time traveling for business than I do in Dallas. My website is http://jackthehack.com
, but hasn't been updated in ages as I have so little time between work and play...
I am erudite, musical, and eclectic
What I’m doing with my life
Trying to retire to a beach somewhere as quickly as possible. Of course, after a year or two on the beach I'll get bored and have to figure out what to do next, but I'll worry about that once I'm living on the beach.
I’m really good at
Playing guitar & keyboards. Solving complex problems on the cutting, bleeding edge of convergance technology. Gourmet cooking with a bizarre Provencal-fusion kind of style. Making the HR dept. and the accounting trolls insanely pissed off at me. Almost everything except suffering fools gladly.
The first things people usually notice about me
That I'm "not from around here", regardless of where in the world I am at the moment, or my energy.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
A.) Either "A Confederacy of Dunces" or "Catch-22"
B.) I don't own a TV, so I see virtually every movie worth seeing, hard to nail down a favorite... recently, Crash
C.) I like, and play all musical genres except rap & country.
D.) I'm a gourmand and enjoy everything but liver and monopods.
The six things I could never do without
Love, sex, music, books, a guitar, my dog Update: My dog got eaten by a badger, so I guess I can get by on five...
I spend a lot of time thinking about
New and exciting ways to get in trouble in Corporate Amerika. Why Gisele Bundchen would go out with someone so obviously gay as Leonardo DiCaprio. The Stranger Arranger matched me up with Wafflemeat, and I'm damned if I can figure out how I could possibly be more Radcliffy than her, even if I'm not completely sure WTF "Radcliffy" is...
On a typical Friday night I am
Either out listening to live music or at home playing/recording music. Occasionally I take groups of adult entertainers to dinner to restaurants and and invariably they create scenes after enough chocolate martinis, but they can't throw us out because I spend too much money corporately there; we usually go to dance clubs later and often the servers from the restaurant follow us.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I secretly want to turn Katie Couric and Diane Sawyers out as a tag team. Strippers send me Xmas cards with pictures of their dogs on them. I tried to train my dog to retrieve cute women, but being a dog, she has problems with the weight/height proportion deal, especially if you have potato chips or any form of meat products in your vicinity...
You should message me if
You're easily bored, know what a quark is and/or or can sing or play an instrument.
