well I've been putting this off forever, I would rather have someone else tell you about me, that would probably be more valid. How do I convince the reader how incredible(yet humble) I truly am? This also makes me contemplate the nature of identity, where does the reality lie? The man I think I am? The man I aspire to be? or the person others see me as? Somewhere in the middle I suppose. Well I love music and reading. I like to cook, and am somewhat of a homebody these days. I have a somewhat non-traditional job, which offers me a great deal of freedom. I feel that I am middle-of-the-road politically, yet I have been called a pinko liberal by some, I favor science over myth and hysteria. I don't know if there is a god or not, but I live my life in a way that will allow me to look him in the eye if he does indeed exist. I am a pop-culture junkie, I reference movies and shows that nobody remembers,(or has even seen) and am a sarcastic S.O.B. I think I have a great sense of humor, and I don't take myself too seriously. At the risk of sounding arrogant, I think I am fairly smart, and can discuss most topics intelligently. I can also admit when I am wrong, or don't know. I try to treat others the way I expect to be treated, to keep my word, and to ultimately be a decent human........Have you read this far?....Cause its all Bullshit....Fact is life hasn't happened the way I wish, I mean. I am happy, but at your age ... You want security, and the unfortunate fact I am as broke now as I was in college... The difference is, I own my home... I am OK, Can you be OK with me?
What I’m doing with my life
Not a ton, working, going to shows, enjoying the simple
things:books, food, and music. I am pretty content with my life.
I’m really good at
Snappy comebacks, practical jokes...
The first things people usually notice about me

thats what I hear.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
books:the beats, espesially Kerouac and Hunke, Hunter S. Thompson,

Monty Python(series and films), Clockwork Orange and everything

put together, sets, lighting,camera angles etc.

Margritte, Dali of course, Marcel Duchamp, Art Nouveau, the
Renaissance, and much of the current "Lowbrow movement"
The six things I could never do without
the comforts of home
thats only five but thats about it.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
politics, the nature and origins of the universe, and the blind
acceptance, and rejection of knowledge inherent in some tenets of
On a typical Friday night I am
If I am not working,odds are good I am at home. I have no set
schedule, so fridays are not a big deal to me. I will go out to see
bands, but they rarely seem to fall on fridays anymore, they always
seem to be on saturdays, or midweek/
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
whaddaya wanna know? I am an open book, ask me and I'll tell. I
have made mistakes in my life, everyone has. I own my mistakes, I
have few regrets.
You should message me if
You truly want to meet the "nice guy" women are always talking
about. I don't play games, I am honest and trustworthy.
