My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
DISCLAIMER (new): This profile is so outdated it's ridiculous. Everything on it is still accurate for the most part, but a lot has changed in the three-plus years since I last updated it, and all I really have time to do about it is write this little blurb. As such, we appreciate visits and whatnot, but at the moment we're very busy and only check here once in a blue moon, so please keep that in mind. Thank you!

DISCLAIMER (old): I am very happily married, for over a year now, but my wife is still kinda GAY, lol. She'll tell you herself, in fact, her profile on here is "thehardysarehot", go check her out. We both love meeting new and interesting people on here, we've had some different kinds of fun we'd never had before, so... yeah you can continue reading my life's story, or just message my wife instead. Your call.

My soul withers without a song to play.

A simpler way of saying that would be that music is my life, and I've been playing guitar and writing music for over 17 years now. In fact, I'd rather people like my music than like me, frankly.

I've been told I'm a bit eccentric; I realize that sounds really cliche, since I've seen it on just about every profile since I've been on here, but it's just the end result of the ways I choose to live my life. I like to think of life as one really huge, long, epic song that you play with everything you do. And I just can't have my song be boring, sorry. I also constantly fathom the idea that the world might blow up tomorrow, or that I might somehow die in my sleep, so I go to bed each night only after I'm completely satisfied with the entirety of my life's ambitions. And as if all that isn't enough, I question everything. Especially myself. Too many people run around nowadays with the ill-conceived notion that everything they do is okay, just because they did it themselves; and of course, they hear the voice of some idiot parent figure dancing around in their heads, telling them to "Just follow your heart, it'll never steer you wrong!". Puh-leeze. Shoot me. My heart is telling me to kill you and steal your wallet. Should I follow it? Fact is, you can't question anything properly until you question yourself, your motives, and your methods, first and foremost. Once you've done that, and come to real and truthful conclusions, then you'd be surprised what you find out about everything and everyone else.

In other words, I might be one of the only men left on earth who is willing to freely admit that he is wrong.

Update: ...or maybe not. Some people will always surprise you with how self-correcting they can be. My friends and bandmates are great when it comes to this kind of thing.

Whew! That was too intense! On a lighter note, I love talks, long walks on the beach (Lake George, especially), candlelight dinners (I know my way around a kitchen, and I love to cook), and I'm a sucker for Jelly Belly jellybeans. I have a group of friends and musicians that I like to hang out, have a few beers, watch football and write music with, so I am by no means "needy" or "clingy" (Actually, if you were paying attention before, you'd realize that that would go completely against my personality. If you weren't paying attention, it's okay. I forgive you.). I need my space, same as everyone. My normal eccentricities find their way into almost every conversation I've ever had in my life, so talking to me is never, EVER a dull proposition. I hate being bored, so I'll do almost anything to spice up a conversation, activity, etc..

I deeply resent shallow, ignorant, or stupid people. I don't dislike them, I resent them. They are taking up my valuable space, and breathing too much of my air. And the worst part is, they tend to be delusional about it, too. It's that pesky dumb parental voice again. We tell our kids to just "Be yourself!", and then we think we don't need to help them discover who that is afterward. Combine "Just be yourself" with "Follow your heart", and you get "DO WHATEVER THE FUCK YOU WANT!!!". I could rant about this forever, but the bottom line is, if you don't treat people with respect and courtesy, and really consider the ramifications of the things you do, then you are one of those people, and you can fuck off and die.

I love kids, animals, and I want to save the rain forests.

I've also been told I'm funny, charming, and INSANE.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
After years of slave labor in professional, commission-paid sales, I decided to take a simple, part-time job that doesn't involve too much brainpower, so that I can concentrate on my true passion; MUSIC. I am in the Capital District's #1 metal band (as voted by the Metroland Reader's Poll, thanks everyone!), and I've been playing guitar for over 15 years. I guess my other favorite "hobbies" would have to be poker (which is more of a second job than a hobby, really), and SEX. I'm no sleaze, but I think a healthy sex life is vital to keeping one's sanity. I also like camping, fishing, skiing, etc., and I LOVE football. It's like a religion to me. I even keep up to date on football news in the offseason, which I know is kind of sad, but I was a real geek in high school, so I guess I'm making up for it now.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Music, poker, and talking to people. Really, all things considered, I'd prefer people like my music more than they like me. Music is the most perfect voice I have, even though I do talk a bit. Anything else I could say about it would sound like bragging though, and I don't like to brag. I've started posting some of my acoustic song lyrics in my journal, please, check them out! I love the input! Poker; well, that's just my favorite way to pay the bills. I also consider it one of the ultimate forms of human interaction; a way to understand the thought processes of others, sometimes without them even saying a word. I talk to people, honestly, because the idea of missing out on really interacting with and getting to know lots of people seems like a crime to me. People can always surprise you, in one way or another.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
People say I look 'aggressive'. They actually tend to be intimidated by me, I've been told. Which makes no sense to me whatsoever, other than the fact that I shave my head and have a pretty righteous goatee. I'm really a very laid-back guy, and I'm very comfortable in my own skin. Once people talk to me, they say I am very charming (more stuff I don't really understand, and am kind of embarassed about), and that I have very nice eyes (boring old blue, as far as I'm concerned).
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I haven't read a good book since 'Gump & Co.', the sequel to 'Forrest Gump'. My all-time favorites include 'A Brave New World', by Aldous Huxley, 'The Green Mile' series, by Steven King (and several of his other books, I might add), and the entire 'My Teacher is an Alien' series, by Bruce Coville (I like kids books, they're more fun. Adult novels tend to take themselves way too seriously).

Being part geek, part 'guy', my favorite movies are The Lord of the Rings movies, followed very closely by any Scorsese film (Goodfellas is my favorite, followed by Gangs of New York and Raging Bull).

I mainly listen to extreme, death, and prog metal. My favorite band is Dream Theater, then Opeth, then a whole bunch of other metal, classical, folk, jazz, etc. (more of which is listed in my 1st journal entry) that I go back and forth on daily. I've listened to Messuggah and Jack Johnson back to back before! I have many favorite foods and enjoy cooking, raisins are my favorite snack (the grape is the greatest fruit ever created).

Update: I have recently developed an allergic reaction to raisins, which, of course, is living proof that there is no god. Sigh. I'm gonna go jump off a bridge now.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1. My son and my wife.
2. My friends and family.
3. My hands. Duh, I play guitar.
4. My 10-track portable recording studio.
5. My guitars (even the ones I've ruined).
6. My penis. Hey, you asked.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Music. I'm always writing something in my head.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Hanging out with the guys and drinking Smithwick's (The only Irish thing I like! For all the Irish girls, I'm kidding of course. It's not your fault you can't survive without a potato. I understand.).
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Nothing. Ask me anything, and I'll give you a straight-up answer. I'm very open and honest about just about everything.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You're bored or stuck in a rut. I can always find something entertaining to do or to talk about.

You should also message me if you are into couples, since my wife and I are always looking to meet new and interesting ladies (which is why I'm looking for bi girls only). Again, her name on here is thehardysarehot, you should go check her out. We love to hang out, watch movies and play games.

You should especially message me if you like Heavy Metal in any way, shape, or form. I have a list of favorite bands in my 1st journal entry, and if we share any favorites you should definitely let me know. I don't get many opportunities to talk to women that are into the same music as me, and it sucks balls. Go back and read my profile again, you'll understand why this is VERY important to me.

You should not message me if you are vain or arrogant, or if you get all dolled up just to go to Wal-Mart. You are not special, you are not unique, and you shouldn't let it bother you to the point where you go all supermodel just to buy a fucking pair of Southpole jeans. Above all, you're not too good for ANYONE, so get off you're goddamn high horse right now. Just be you, and if I don't like you, oh fucking well, it ain't the end of the world!

On the reverse side of things, I'm not huge into clingy, OCD women. I like to be flattered, but I don't like to be smothered, k? Nobody falls in love in a month, no matter what every girl I've ever met in my entire life seems to think. Yeah, you all heard me! You know who you are!

Also, while we're on the subject of messages, would eveyone reading this please just message me back when I say "hi"? Honestly, what does it take, like, 5 fucking seconds to type in "fuck off" if you don't want to talk to me? Of course, you'd be really dumb for saying it, but at least I could stop worrying that my browser is broken. Fuck.
