My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm a free-thinking, honest, unconventional, creative and somewhat argumentative individual.
Doing things simply because "that's how things have always been done" or because some arbitrary rule/law/social convention dicates that I should is not how I role. I may conform to rules/traditions I disagree with, but only when I have determined that it will benefit me or someone I care about in some way. I like rocking the boat/stirring up controversy wherever I am able. If I am told that I shouldn't do or say something and not given a good reason as to why I shouldn't, I will probably be more inclined to say or do that very thing than I would be otherwise. Kinda like a kid who wasn't even thinking about cookies being told not to grab a cookie from the cookie jar. Of course he's going to want a fucking cookie! You brought it up! Lol.
I have no filter and could give a crap if people choose to be offended by my words/my views.
Politically, I take no sides and don't buy into the whole "left vs. right"/"liberal vs. conservative" myth as it is just a tool for those claiming authority to divide people and distract them from the real issues. I also have no loyalty to any chunk of rock or colorful rag that represents it, nor the people who claim authority over it/their armed enforcers. Countries do not exist (look at a picture of the borders, just landmasses and water) and no matter what chunk of rock you go to, the people that live on that particular chunk of rock consider theirs to be the best. Patriotism, like religion, creates an "us and them" mentality and is there to control and separate people. I feel that an individual should be able to do whatever they wish, when they wish, how they wish, and with who they wish as long as they don't infringe on another's right to do the same.

Music is a huge part of my life, though I have been taking a break from it as of late. Here is a live/solo acoustic track I recorded a little over a year ago:
I also enjoy art/drawing and have dabbled in tattooing in the past.
Big Star Wars fan...even the prequels and special editions, though I think there are things that could have been done differently. Cautiously optimisitic about episode 7...especially after seeing the trailers. Fun fact: I tattooed Darth Vader's helmet on my arm.

I also enjoy setting up/maintaining aquariums. Been doing it since I was a kid.

I'm currently trying my hand at growing my own food as a way to stick it to the man by being less reliant on grocery stores. Got two tomato plants, and a few broccoli plants that are doing well, of course they are transplants. I also planted some corn and onion seeds. Hopefully they do well, but only a couple have started to sprout, so far. So far its been a pretty good learning experience.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
What are YOU doing with YOUR life?
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Writing/performing music, writing, drawing, inspiring up-tight people to choose to be offended, cooking (especially stuff that is bbq'd, fried, or sauteed...and homemade pizza). Thinking outside the box/playing devil's advocate. Karaoke (guilty pleasure) depending on the song selection the bar has...its rare when there is a good selection of artists I like and when there is, its always the radio songs and they are crappy midi-cover versions with off-key backup vocals rather than the original minus the vocals. One thing that pissed me off is when I went up to do "Lateralus" by Tool, and the whole second half of the song was missing, which is the best part of the song. I thought the dj was being a dick and cut it off because he thought the song was too long, but turned out it was the track itself. So if you ever want to sing a somewhat long song, ask the dj how long the track is before going up. It will save you embarrassment.
Setting up/maintaining aquariums. Figuring out new computer software.

I love live music and have been to countless shows. I have seen a good percentage of the above listed bands, and more, in concert (some more than once), and have met quite a few artists that many people would give their left nut and/or a kidney to meet. Also, I take great joy in tricking concert security/event staff into granting me access to restricted areas or allowing me and those with me to have better seats despite not paying for them when at seated shows which are increasingly more common as of late. Not bragging, just illustrating that my experience working in the music business (plus a touch of common sense and out of the box thinking) has made it so I am someone you definitely want to go to a concert with as I tend to make what would normally be just a fun night at a show into an experience that you will never forget (and I can prove this with signed ticket stubs, pics with artists-none of which are from paid "meet and greets"- and eyewitnesses who have gone to shows with me and witnessed my use of the Jedi mind trick on security guards), oh, and all that while successfully smuggling in recording gear to get awesome sounding bootlegs of the shows.

Food: Easier to list stuff I don't like...
1. Canned tuna (never had fresh, other than in sushi which is awesome, but other than that, no opinion)
2. Canned spinach
3. Miracle whip ( It is NOT the same thing as mayo. Whoever invented this foul, unholy sludge deserves a special place in hell. I don't even believe in hell, but they belong there)
4. Cottage cheese (though it CAN be good in certain homemade chip dips)
5. Undercooked corn tortillas. If a corn tortilla is not crispy, it is not done, IMO. This severely limits the foods I am willing to buy at taco carts/authentic mexican restaraunts.
6. Most cassarole/goulash-type dishes/certain pasta dishes. Usually its because there is cheese involved. I like cheese, but not in these kind of dishes (lasagna being an example-I usually like it, but it all depends on the ingredients used and how its cooked...lasagna with with cheddar is gross...or when people use cottage cheese instead of ricotta) ...unless its powdered parmasan, or uncooked shredded cheddar used like a condiment. I fucking hate chili-mac. I like chili, and I like mac-n-cheese (mostly Kraft, but it CAN be good homemade, if made right) but not together. There are exceptions to the rule, but I never know until I see it/try a bite or two. The only exceptions to the no exceptions rule is chili-mac and tuna cassaroles. Noone can make those taste good...not even me. So if you make something like any of the above, don't be surprised/offended if I refuse to eat it after only a bite or two...its nothing personal. It's a quirk of mine.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1. Food/water/shelter
2. Hygiene products (I use a lot of them)
3. An acoustic guitar/mic/mic stand/mixer/speakers and/or headphones/pedals/cables/a laptop/guitar pedals/back up sets of strings/guitar picks.
4. Human contact (to a certain degree, I can be fairly reclusive at times)
5. Cartoons
6. ⊙⊙
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Probably at home or chilling with friends. Probably not at a bar, unless I am playing a show, which I don't see myself doing for awhile.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You want to.
If you play an instrument, are honest, don't flirt with every guy you see, are literate/educated, don't base who you date on material things like how much money they make, or what posessions they own. Dating is about a physical/emotional connection. Not what is or isn't inside the other person's wallet. Mooches suck. Until I get to know you, I'm purposely not mentioning what I do for work/how much I make (don't worry, I'm not a man-whore or anything like that) and I would prefer to not hear about what you do/how much you make either...unless you are a stripper/other kind of prostitute, in which case, please don't contact me in the first place or reply if I message you (if you mention it on your profile, this wont be an issue)...Nor will I agree to a date activity that costs money until we have dated for awhile. Why not go for a walk in a park or cemetary, have a picnic/bbq, play video games, watch pirated movies, jam (if you play an instrument), do an art project together (fingerpainting, anyone?), hang out and talk, do something mischievious and/or of questionable legality or some combination of the above or something I may not have thought of? Sounds way more fun (and memorable) than getting overpriced coffee/drinks or sitting in a crowded theater or restaraunt. I would rather not base a relationship on finances or waste time with someone who does. I want something real.

You don't have any STD's or substance abuse issues that involve needles. I don't care what your vice is. We all have our vices, but when it negatively effects me or the relationship, then it is an issue.

No flakes. Honesty is important. Very important. If you flake it shows you are a dishonest person. Even more so if you flake on a first date. I don't give a crap what your excuse is, or how well we hit it off via text. Actions speak louder than words. Even if you get called in to work, it is no excuse as this shows where your priorities lie and I don't want to make someone a priority in my life if they make work a priority over people. It's not that hard to tell an employer that you have a prior engagment and that they should have given more notice.

Also, if you have kids, I don't mind, but if the father (or any other ex) is still in the picture, or if you have multiple kids from multiple fathers we wont be a good fit. Also, not into chicks with a bunch of male "friends", they may actually be "just friends", but I have no way of knowing this, and being a guy, I know whenever I have been "friends" with a chick, I usually wanted more than friendship, yet despite obvious signs, they were oblivious to this fact until I outright said something to them. If you have guy friends, no big deal, I just don't want to date you. I'll bang you, but I wont want anything to do with you otherwise. Not the end of the world.
