My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Hey, darlin' do you gamble? Well, I won't lie and say I didn’t think the good ones all were taken
Since there aint no peaches fallin' from the tree that I've been shakin'. I'm just a city boy with a hillbilly soul. I ain't no poet, I ain't no poet's son but I can sweet talk you, mama 'til your poet comes. I walk the streets at night, I go where eagles dare. Guitars, Cadillacs, hillbilly music, it's the only thing that keeps me hangin' on. I've got swingin' doors, a jukebox and a bar stool and my new home has a flashing neon sign. Don't tell me I'm a fool to hold out my hand to everyone , every time and risk the fall. A country mile can be the longest distance a man can ever travel when he's down. I've got ideas and dreams and twice as many doubts. Then one day a wealthy customer bought that Indian maid, and took her oh so far away but poor old Kaw-liga stayed. Them that don't know him won't like him and them that do sometimes won't know how to take him. He ain't wrong he's just different but his pride won't let him do things to make you think he's right. I'd rather be a devil endin' life on a tear than to be an angel at a church fair. Red hair and black leather, my favorite colour scheme. I'm just an old chunk of coal, but I'm gonna be a diamond some day. And in my head there's all these classic cars and outlaw cowboy bands. For all the good and bad I've done I'll take the credit and the blame. I can't wait 'til the show tonight, when I'm with my friends everything's alright.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm a man of simple tastes; I like beer, tattoos, rugby league, steak sandwiches, straight razor shaves, good whiskey, girls who play instruments and girls with accents.

"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. Went to the baseball, ate amazing barbecue, learned to Texas two-step and spent my nights in the dive bars of Nashville. 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; 34 year 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. Rediscovering my love of photography of late (instagram is @lesoulgambler). 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’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Self-deprication. It is my firm belief that you have NO right to laugh at the short comings of others until you can laugh at your own and point them out with Gatling gun-like frequency. I do this often and thus will do the same thing to you. You know the old school yard adage of "if he/she makes fun of you it just means they like you"? Well, that's kind of what I'm shooting for.

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.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I don't know. What was the first thing _you_ noticed?
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books: Philip Carlo, Bret Easton Ellis, Joe Bageant, music biographies, social studies books, any sort of true crime.

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. Lately, my guilty pleasure viewing is Nashville. It's practically a soap opera with all of the musical stuff as set dressing but I started watching it before I traveled there for real and found it reasonable enough to devour the first two seasons which are 20 episodes each!

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.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Good company, Guinness, a sense of humor, BBQ sauce, western shirts and rugby league.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
What Merle Haggard would do...
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
It depends on how close to pay day it is. I'm usually at home with a six pack and a pizza watching the NRL Friday Night double header. If not, I'm out at monthly work drinks or catching up with friends elsewhere or maybe at a gig.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Certain songs make me weepy; Coat of Many Colours by Dolly Parton, Blue Blvd. by Dave Alvin and Old Friend by Lyle Lovett top the list... plus I have awesome pyjamas.

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
If you want to... and if any of what was prologue to this appealed to you in any way, shape or form.

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!
