Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
(If you are looking at this because I favorited you I swear I am
not shy about sending messages - just BUSY AF for the next few
weeks - and I don't want to lose track of you)
[OKAY. QUICK NOTE: If our profile match is less than 90%? Just no.
NO. Why would you want to deal with that?]
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
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
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
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
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 an empty essay… fill me out!
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
Help your potential matches find common interests.
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
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
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
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
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
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
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
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
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’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I fucking despise the term "assless chaps". Being assless is an
inherent trait of chaps. If they had an ass they would be "pants".
