I'm a massive photography nerd. I love talking about equipment, and I love talking about technique.
I've played guitar since high school, and picked up keyboard a few years ago.
I will call bands and songs 'radio rock', sometimes derisively. I'm not a snob, I swear. But 'Intro-Verse-Chorus-Verse-Bridge-Chorus(x2 with the second an octave higher)-Outro' sucks. It's boring. Try harder.
In the same vein, I consider the lyrics of the song to be of the same importance as the music.
I really love traveling. I want to back-pack across the world, thumb a ride on a rocket ship to the moon, and backpack across that too.
I went to Scotland for two weeks, and I walked and rode a series of buses around the country with a rucksack. I found a gravestone of my ancestors from the 1740's, in the churchyard of a church that was built in the 1200's.
I built a single speed bike, because one day I realized I didn't know how to.
I got thrown off said bicycle by a pothole (thanks Philadelphia streets department!) and broke both bones in my left forearm. I now have metal plates holding them together. And I actually shot two weddings while my arm was still healing in a brace.
I don't shy away from big words in a conversation.
I've gone skydiving. During said sky-diving session, my chute failed, and the back-up chute is all that stopped me from ending up at the bottom of a human-shaped hole in the ground. Ala Wile E. Coyote.
I understand why artists and musicians are willing to live in their cars.
I live with a cat named Optimus Prime. He's not mine, but I'll readily take credit for his name.
I like Blues and Jazz.
I played several sports when I was younger, and was mediocre at all of them.
I'm not really a foodie. I do, however, understand why people spend $12 on a beer. I like good beer.
Wine too. Red, please.
I like bars, but prefer low key. Sitting in a booth and being able to talk to someone, while listening to a good jukebox > paying a $10 cover and drinking overpriced Coors from a plastic cup while listening to a terrible cover band.
I was a massive (MASSIVE) video game nerd at one point in my life, and because of this, have a pretty big collection of older video games (NES though N64/PS1).
