Soft-spoken, yet hard-driven -- and can carry a big shtick. Yet I've had my challenges in life, both silly & serious. It might have started when I attended an inner city grammar school in my youth, where I learned to dance to the Jackson Five, and mastered the finger-roll layup in street-basketball. I'm sure your challenges have been a bit...different.
Gratitude is one of my favorite words.
I have a soft spot for hand-made goods, crafts, and other fine arts -- draws me in. I have an academic bent, with an admitted weakness for scientific or history tomes -- I can devour them. But don't worry, I would always save an 'appetite' for you, so go ahead and regale me with your own life tales, obsessions (or mis-adventures).
Which brings up...you. You sometimes give in to 'under-thinking' the moment, yet freely over-think your passions. You might have some sort of design or fashion sense. Not looking for a clone of my tastes & interests--counterpoint is good. Sharing is fun. I do read the profiles, after ogling your pics.
And I freely admit that I'm a "nice guy". There, I said it.
Word play -- OKC questions are fun. I do like to write.
Leading local urban history & geography walks. A minor passion of mine.
I like to cook -- blame my dear mom and her Swiss 'au pair' past for that.
MUSIC: As a true Oakland native, my early tastes were forged in James Brown, then grooved by Jerry Garcia, sharpened by Too $hort, punked by Green Day, and then expanded by EDM. Now refined by a Chopin etude, or a Bach cantata, heh.
MOVIES: Bulworth, Wag the Dog, Woody Allen 'presents'... , La Dolce Vita, Bridesmaids, Back to School, Dr Strangelove, Beetlejuice, CitizenKane, Bowfinger... get the Picture?
SHOWS: As in TV? Don't watch that anymore. If you do, have at it. I did watch Celebrity Rehab awhile back just for the meltdowns.
- Playing the piano, when not playing it.
You like to kiss. And dance -- even if everyone is watching.
You prefer we meet soon and engage our senses rather than idly construct idealizations built on abstract representations. In plain English, let's hang out.
