My self-summary
Working at a job I love, writing for a living instead of a hobby, got the finances, food, shelter, lower tiers of Maslow's hierarchy taken fairly good care of. Great group of friends. Some sideline hobbies that make me happy. Living pretty healthy and looking to improve upon that.

Now I'm just looking for somebody who I can share in-jokes with while we go to movies and restaurants and hopefully other places and generally amuse the hell out of each other.

Someone who can SING!!*

*actual participants do not actually have to sing.
What I’m doing with my life
Working, cooking, exercising and living. Trying to write a lot. Podcasting. Cutting up.

I fell into the clover and found a company willing to pay me to write and be creative for a living. SO that doesn't suck.

In the meantime I watch a lot of movies, jump into green belts with abandon, read, laugh and generally try to live the hell out of this life.
I’m really good at
Amusing myself. Seriously, I'm terrific at it. I'm fairly decent at amusing others too (I've been told). I also make a decent omelet and I can change a flat tire very quickly which I think are good back-up skills in case the amusement thing doesn't pan out.

I also have an immense talent for remembering useless trivia. That's actually come in handy both with podcasting and my "real" job. Good for me!

I'm a dab hand in the Kitchen.

I'm a great Interlocutor. Seriously! Look it up!
The first things people usually notice about me
I'm tall. But I'm also a totally snappy dresser. So I'm going to go with "dashing sense of style".

If not that then my crooked smile or general goofiness.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Broad range of lit interests from trashy paperbacks to high end tomes.Some comic book stuff (The Hernandez Bros., Daniel Clowes, C. Tyler, and Craig Thomson) some fiction (perennial favorites being Garcia-Marquez, Murakami, and Raymond Chandler). Favorite book of 2013: A Visit From The Goon Squad

I AM A MOVIE FANATIC. I love french New Wave, art house gems, the occasional action movie and watch several documentaries a year. And everything in between. (my fave director BTW is Akira Kurosawa-the biggest genius of film IMHO - my favorite movie is Ikiru -not one of the Samurai ones, in case you're interested) Lately I'm watching and laughing (and occasionally really liking) bad European horror flicks on Netflix.

Concerts when I can. After decades in the music biz periphery I'm picky. I enjoy seeing a good show - I might lean more towards a place like the Paramount and ACL but I'll catch a crowd surfer if they are flung in my path. I definitely want to get out to more theater this year (I also want to start acting again, but that is another story).

I listen to a lot of stuff. I Love be-bop (I've been in a Mingus phase lately), Old school Nashville (and a few upstarts-Randy Travis, Dwight Yoakum, George Strait-I'd still rather listen to Faron Young or the Louvin Bros.). I've a deep abiding love for all punk rock, from the Ramones to Sham 69 to Black Flag. I like ancient New Wave and Alternative and Old School Hip Hop. I like a lot of hipster twee contemporary stuff too. I often find myself listening to classical for want of anything better on the radio (I don't have a mp3 player in my car). I'd love to hit the Symphony w/ someone (I actually read some of Beethoven's letters to a crowd of Austin Symphony supporters once and got to stay for the concert-it was awesome).

Food: other than being one of those genetic defects that can't endure cilantro I'm a pretty classical omnivore. Love trying new things and incorporating that into my own cooking style.
The six things I could never do without
My peeps (who are awesome).
Some way to watch movies.
Some way to read books. (preferably, you know, BOOKS.)
All that bottom rung Maslow's heirarchy crap.
Stuff that smells good.
A good 9 in one screwdriver.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Politics. Altruism and enlightened self interest. Pretty girls. What's for lunch. How the hell I'm going to make that character go where I need them to be. What's for dinner. Feminism. Material possessions. Budgeting. Lightsabers, phasers and sonic screwdrivers.
On a typical Friday night I am
Could be at a party with my friends. Or recording a podcast. Or down at the local having a pint. Or at a movie. Or on a group pubcrawl. Or maybe it's been a rough week and I'm in bed with a book or three.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I fucking despise the term "assless chaps". Being assless is an inherent trait of chaps. If they had an ass they would be "pants".
I’m looking for
  • Girls who like guys
  • Ages 26–44
  • Near me
  • Who are single
  • For new friends, long-term dating, short-term dating
You should message me if
You wanna go to one of these places with me: http://austin.eater.com/archives/2014/07/01/the-38-essential-austin-restaurants-july-14.php

You wanna walk around Town Lake, Barton or Bull or Shoal Creek Green Belt and talk about life the universe and everything.

You have actually used the words "cosmogony" or "eschatology" in a complete sentence.

You wanna go catch a flick. No joke, I'm a serious damn movie fan-let's go catch a classic at the Paramount this summer.

You have the other half to this locket I possess. No, seriously, what is up with that damn locket?
