Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Hello, ATX! I just moved here from Oakland and I'm eager to meet
new people, discover new trouble, and the likes...
Came to Texas as means of rediscovery after several years in the
Bay Area (and formerly by way of Cincinnati, Boston, Houston, and
Florida), wanderlust got the best of me and I knew I would find
something..."Deep in the Heart of Texas..."
Don't let my stoicism fool you, I am a George Lucas character stuck
in a Tim Burton world, a wanderlust looking for trouble and
Traveling, hiking/camping, single malt Scotches, craft or Belgian
beers, wine tasting, bourbon, local burlesque shows, farmers
markets, antique flea markets, dive bars, live music...
Looking for someone else to explore fun and have myths written
about our adventures.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Starting anew. I moved to Texas to take new perspectives and be
open to all horizons. In the meantime, I'm exploring time travel,
zombie infiltration, and other global travel opportunities.
I was the 1982 lightning bug catching champion of the Midwest, I
expect any prospective date to also wield a similar trophy.
I make my own mustards (the last one was a delicious harvest
flavored bourbon honey hot & spicy mustard). I juggle with the
pair o' dimes...
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Which came first? The fedora or the sarcasm?
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I'm an avid reader - books may be my most prized possession.
Favorites include: Hesse's "Glass Bead Game"; Dostoevsky's "Notes
from the Underground"; Saramago's "Blindness"; Atwood's "The
Handmaid's Tale"; Asimov's "Foundation" novels; Kundera & Kafka
(love those Czechs); LOTR; "Game of Thrones" (excellent!)
Lighter side: Tom Robbins, John Irving, Chuck Palahniuk, Philip
Roth - just discovered Stephen King's "Dark Tower" series...
Movies: Star Wars IV; Godfather I & II; The Big Lebowski;
Tarantino; Wes Anderson; Coen Brothers; anything showing sci-fi
dystopian societies... and Barbarella (this one is a class by
Music: Black Keys, Beck, Zeppelin, Pearl Jam, Cash, Talking Heads,
Beastie Boys, Jack White, Devotchka, The National, Beirut, Wilco,
TV: Battlestar Galactica, Game of Thrones, Arrested Development,
It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia, Dexter
Food: I just moved from the Bay Area where everyone was an
excessive foodie. I'm eager to learn of H-Town's culinary
destinations. I like the ethnic usual suspects. And spice. Must
I am a mustard fiend (I make my own - see above). Ketchup and
mayonnaise are both inferior.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Books, passport, mustard, bourbon, imagination, chocolate, and a
balance to want room for #7 while still trying to figure out to be
able to further minimize to 5 things.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
You may ask yourself, how do I work this?
You may ask yourself, where is that large automobile?
You may tell yourself, this is not my beautiful house
You may tell yourself, this is not my beautiful wife...
Future travel plans (where to travel to next, as opposed to 1.21
Gigawatts & the flux capacitor - those travel plans I've
already conquered), the next great bar, and possible screenplays
for the second-best sci-fi movie ever.
And why Deer (or Elk or other critters') Crossing signs read "Next
__ Miles" - do deer have an internal odometer that tells them to
stop at the marked mileage and not go any further?
The word "out" seems like it should be spelled differently. It
always feels owlt of place.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Enjoying Belgian beers, dinner parties, alt-indie live music, or
waxing poetry from a bar stool (and still trying to figure out what
a "typical Friday night in H-town looks like...)
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I used to enjoy watching Sex and the City.

You're able to laugh at yourself. You think Dexter is a cool dude.
You're still mourning the loss of the house plant you couldn't keep
alive. You know the difference between your libido and your id
(both are appreciated). You dig what the Texas has to offer - share
your recommendations and things you love about your city - I'm
eager to explore them myself! (and I would welcome your company to
