Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Cool dude seeks cool chick / lady / dance partner (ska+reggae) /
Mario kart challenger / bridge walking companion who wants to also
hang at cool shows, drink some beers, listen to some records, and
do other cool people things.
Addendum: Lately I've been going down the rabbit hole with record
collecting and listening. Almost every day has some 'meditation
time' which basically involves sitting purposely centered between
my speakers and listening to records at a high volume. Like,
LISTENING to them. It's awesome. Trending this week: Smashing
Pumpkins and. Charlie Brown Christmas.
Addendum round 2: Even further down the hole now with pretty much
all 90s music. As much of it as I can find. Weezer, green day,
sunny day real estate, helmet, hum, refused, operation Ivy, rancid,
low, blur, radiohead... And some George Winston piano music. My
roommates aren't so psyched on some of these. Or rather, the
Addendum 3: Currently obsessed with St Lucia. Been a long time
since I really liked every single song on an album.
Addendum 4: Now onto the Talking Heads.
Addendum 5: Revisiting a punk phase now.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I've spent most [read: all] of my 20s playing in a band you haven't
heard of (trust me...). This was a fantastic way to blow off real
work for about 10 years, while traveling around the country. I
swear, the best way to see this place is to drive it. It's
These days I'm holding down a steady job (my folks are so
proud...), but still play shows every now and then. I'm psyched
with my current job situation because after a number of shitty jobs
I am doing something a bit more career oriented now. Sweeeet.
I'd like to take some cool train rides someday and also go BASE
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Making the best of any situation. Always remembering to laugh.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
This would be fun to talk about in person, maybe.
More books and music than movies and shows.
Any sort of documentary.
Here's a start:
Books: Right now I'm into biographies/autobiographies. Recently
finished one by Duff McKagen. If you don't know, he is the bass
player from Guns n Roses. He is also a financial advisor and writer
for ESPN. Turns out, he's a decent writer.
The Slackers, Com Truise, Easy Star All Stars, John Brown's Body,
Smashing Pumpkins, Low, Neon Indian, Washed Out, anything from the
90s, any reggae, and....... Phish (probably a deal breaker for some
This is an incredibly small sampling. We all know this. Sometimes I
enjoy what the kids are listening to the the clubs. I don't hate
deadmau5/edm stuff. But I do have a very soft spot for ska and
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
What's next? NYC, and it's fascinating infrastructure. Old stuff,
new stuff. Have you seen the holiday subway train? It's an old
1940s subway train they run on Sundays. It's sooo cool!
Also: music, the next record I'll buy, what bar to go to next, what
neighborhood to go for a walk in, walking over the bridges,
synthesizers, guitars, amps, weed, street art, trains (really!),
what to eat, how long has it been since I got out of the city?,
kink, what to do when the seasons change, where I'm traveling next,
the next concert I'm going to, making music, stand up comedy,
investing, different scenes around the city. And stuff.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Listening to, watching, or playing music.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm even taller in person.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You are cool, fun, funny, you want to hang out. You like to wear
black leggings. And/or leather pants. Or pretty much anything from
American Apparel. You get a little weird sometimes. Maybe you have
some tatoos or piercings. You want to go record shopping, or hang
out and smoke and listen to some records. Or play Mario Kart. Or go
