What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Here are the Cliff Notes; gainfully employed, 30-something male living in Melbourne doing all the garden-variety things a fella of my age is inclined to do in his waking hours in between working and trying to work stuff out like everybody else.

I went solo to the USA for the first time earlier in 2014. Met so many great people who are now great friends and learned a lot about myself in the process. Promised myself I'd jump back in to the dating pool when I returned.

Two of my closest friends tell me I came back much more confident than I was before I left but I am still quite shy and retiring in some areas.

I've been learning banjo for a few years and my goal this year is to start krav maga.
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!

TV shows: Deadwood, Sons of Anarchy, Game of Thrones, Boston Legal, Friday Night Lights, 30 Rock, Justified, Dexter, Hell On Wheels, Weeds, Father Ted, Nashville, Banshee.

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.Bluebonnet Bar-B-Q in Collingwood is my favorite place to eat in Melbourne. 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.
You should message me if
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. If you don't like banjos or are not partial to country and bluegrass music then it's a deal breaker. 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!
