"I don't know how to kill the bunny..."
**UPDATE, July 2014** Attempting this again after a hiatus of about 8 months. I just got done with 4 weeks holiday in the USA (helLA, Austin, Nashville, Chicago, Wisconsin) and it was the single greatest experience of my life. Got to see a lot of stuff and have a great time. I met so many great people who are now great friends, learnt a lot about dealing with others and, most important of all, got to learn a hell of a lot about myself in the process. I wouldn't trade it for anything. I know I'm a better person for the experience and want to apply that to other parts of my life now that I'm home!
Here are the Cliff Notes; 33 years old single male (obviously). When I'm not working 40 hours a week for an online book retailer I play the banjo (or rather I am learning. Don't worry... I still have all my teeth) and tinker with a mandolin that I own. I was a bit late to the party on learning music but would love to (eventually) be multi-instrumental...next on my wish list is to learn lap steel guitar. Also; hanging out with my friends, seeing bands, enjoying nights at the local pub, watching rugby league (and refereeing it)... y'know, the garden variety stuff that 30-something males do in the downtime they have between working and trying to figure it all out like everybody else.
I've been in Melbourne since I was 7 years old. Sydney born (don't tell anyone) and, along with a twin sister, spent 3 years living in Sri Lanka as an "ex-pat brat" while my old man worked for a multi-national manufacturing company. Don't envision myself leaving here. I love Melbourne and although it's a big city, I find it to be a lot like a village...throw Facebook and social media in to the mix and that village becomes a sewing circle! Consequently, I have a number of acquaintances as well as a handful of separate groups of close, trusted and valued friends. Both suit me right down to the ground because, after all, I like people.
My parents are both from families of eight children each so I have a large extended family; 7 uncles, 7 aunts and more cousins than I can count.
I'm an atheist, but strangely enough I enjoy old country and bluegrass gospel tunes (Hank, Stanley Brothers, Carter Family etcetera and so forth)... probably because they just make for damn good songwriting and I'm exposed to them to a reasonable extent.
I've been travelling... but want to do more! Would love to go back to America and do more of Texas and Tennessee but also have my heart set on Ireland and Scotland and want to go to Russia and Ukraine to see my friends there when it (hopefully) calms down. Mexico is on the bucket list too!
I have a pretty wicked sense of humor with spells of being a smart arse and warm to similar people.
I also have a pretty good memory for names and faces and events and places and generally trivial tidbits of information.
Movies: Swingers, The Empire Stikes Back, Jaws, Raiders Of the Lost Ark, The Godfather, Hard Core Logo, basically anything Kevin Smith has ever done, A History of Violence, The Boondock Saints, Boogie Nights, Goonies, Zombieland, Goodfellas, westerns, sports dramas and comedies (Bull Durham, The Natural, White Men Can't Jump, Hoosiers, Any Given Sunday etc) anything with Julianne Moore in it because she is beautiful and anything with Ed Harris in it because he's a total fucking bad arse! Also, I watch Gremlins and Die Hard every Christmas eve.
TV shows: Deadwood is, hands down, the greatest show in television history. It's like Shakespeare in the Wild West. Love it! Also Sons of Anarchy, Game of Thrones, Boston Legal, Friday Night Lights, 30 Rock, Justified, Dexter, Hell On Wheels, Weeds, Father Ted.
Music: punk, psychobilly, country, bluegrass, western swing, rockabilly, Celtic, rock & roll, folk, old R&B/soul, some metal, hardcore and hip-hop.
I like too many bands and artists to name drop so copy and past this link to get a better idea of what I'm in to;
Food: Mexican, Sri Lankan, Asian. Also on the lookout for a good Russian and Creole/Cajun place. Danny's in North Fitzroy have the best burgers in Melbourne and Highway 31 in Brunswick has the best hangover fry ups. Plus, my local pub does an amazing, out of this world double baked goat cheese souflee...and I'm not even vegetarian.
I also love crude, politically incorrect, deadpan humor and satire. Frankie Boyle and Jim Jefferies are my new favorites but also have all the time in the world for Billy Connolly and the late, great George Carlin. Finally, Steve Martin's banjo records are the hallmarks of pure comic genius; wit, humor, great storytelling. Genuinely hilarious.

I was once asked by an acquaintance what I look for in a woman. I boiled it down to the essentials; stereotypically Celtic, tattooed lass who plays upright bass. He laughed and suggested that with that criteria it was one specific girl on a planet with a population of how many billion? And that it might be a stretch to find her. But if you're her, do get in touch...
But seriously, beggars can't be choosers so if anything about the above ramblings has struck you as mildly interesting, if you think we'd get along or you know any banjo jokes then go ahead and hit that "message" button.
I can be pretty indecisive about things at the best of times and usually talk myself out of things I want to do pretty easily. Looking for someone to challenge my spirit of adventure and take me outside of my comfort zone.
Oh, and if you can cook...not because I want you to cook for me but because I really want to learn how to cook myself. Sorely lacking that skill and chomping at the bit to learn!
