Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Thank you for visiting my profile, you've won a prize, well sorta,
I think this site is really a lot of fun, but I sense Men and Women
have very different experiences here and that they really do range
from very good to truly terrible. I promise to strive to be
pleasant in my interactions, so go ahead send me a message. This is
great alternative to a noisy bar or waiting for lightning to
1) Very funny and will meet you at least half way, every
2) Loyal, honest and sensitive, and have paid the price to be the
person that I wanted to be.
3) Authentic, original example of something rare. I know exactly
who I am. This sounds like I'm describing an extinct lizard found
living secretly on an island (Tuatara?), I think that might be
charming and accurate.
It is hard to find someone who has had heavy duty life experiences
and has not become wrung out and embittered by them. The key is to
still have fun and retain the ability to love someone. I like
strong, creative women who want me to feel good about being who I
am. I'm a very good communicator and understand that listening
could be the majority of that skill.
The incredible events of my life have left me with some well earned
emotional maturity, but I still worship our inner children. I would
like to be on your team, or at least your cheerleader. Sensible
shoes have always hurt my feet, so I wear boots. Selfish isn't very
sexy, but if you don't ask for it you probably won't get it either.
They call it the Golden Rule, not the Golden Suggestion. You truly

The existential overtones of choosing to be a kind person feel very
real to me. Continuing to strive to be a good person in spite of
this world's insistence that I become a selfish moron is the best
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm 50 with no children and never married. My parents both died
during a 11 month period when I was 22 years of age. I was
fortunate enough to have a long and crazy career in the Music
Industry that more or less fulfilled my early ambitions. My 30 year
career had this strange, Forrest Gump-like quality of putting me in
close quarters with icons and luminaries at key moments in history.
Some of it still doesn't seem real. I was a nationally touring Rock
Guitarist in my twenties and owed a Recording Studio and Record
Label in my thirties. I spent the majority of my forties in the
manufacturing end of the music business. This was back when your
little brother could not do these things over summer vacation on
his laptop. If you're keen on mid '90's Alternative Rock you likely
know some of the Artists I worked with. There were a couple Gold
Records, but this is all ancient history. I'm focused on taking the
skills from my past and building a cool future.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Inspiring others. Seeing potential where others may not. Following
projects through to completion. Deluding myself with positive
result. Giving others the benefit of the doubt. Picking my battles.
Getting guitar sounds in the Recording Studio. Surviving the nearly
unsurvivable, really, I've seen some world class adventures.
Knowing which song should be the band's single. Appreciating the
somewhat tragic irony of everyday life without whining too loudly.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I like to go out and have adventures, and many people become home
bodies after turning 30. This means I may very well be the oldest
person at the concert or festival. I am quickly becoming the
world's most mature juvenile delinquent. I have an incredibly thick
head of hair and I might have a beard.
I walk with a slight limp that you may or may not even notice,
sometimes I use a cane. My Pimp Stick looks quite stylish, thank
you. I get where I'm going just fine. I'm not a slave to any one
fashion and I'm as comfortable in a sport coat as I am in my

The Jim Varney Biography, The Importance of Being Ernest, was
amazing. David and Amy Sedaris. Too much non fiction, too many
biographies. I recently reread Fahrenheit 451, it was like a
Although I do not have a TV , I find the rock band Television to be
one of my favorites. The Soft Boys, Wreckless Eric, T Rex, Kyuss,
Ian Hunter, Nico Vega and The Upper Crust are all genius. The album
Pink Flag by Wire maybe my all time favorite, but maybe its The
Idiot by Iggy Pop. Early Roxy Music and Bowie still sound fresh to
me. Locally, Arboretum and Dope Body are some of my favorites.
Really liked Lungfish and Lovenut too.
Fellini's 8 1/2, The Wizard of Oz, Blade Runner and Ernest-Scared
Stupid (with Eartha Kitt) entertain me greatly. Wes Anderson,
Dalli, Luis Bunuel. Any Coen brothers' film will do, but The Big
Lebowski was special. Man on the Moon, Ken Russell, The Devils, Any
Oliver Reed film except Gladiator. Peter Greenaway. Todd Solondz's
Happiness, Welcome to the Doll House. Land without Bread. John
Waters, Mel Brooks. Buckaroo Banzia. Giant lizard movies always
break my heart, as I end up rooting for the lizard and see 'em as
Bon Scott and Screaming Lord Sutch are personal heroes of mine, as
are Liberace and Zero Mostel. I am very familiar with Vintage Port
wine (Fonseca '74!). I have great passion for almost all cuisine
and love to cook. Sushi, seafood and most Asian food kinda top the
My favorite wild animals included capybara, coconut crabs, star
nosed moles, velvet worms and water bears. I'm not a huge fan of
centipedes or lampreys. Goats are the coolest farm animals, their
pupils freak me out. I love dogs with squished up faces and cats
with very short legs.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Music continues to save me. Interacting with other people is
something I could never do without; I wouldn't last long on a
desert island or in solitary confinement. I have found that I can
"do without" most "things", including the ones most people list in
their answer to this question. Self respect and friendship aren't
tangible but are very important to me. I love my friends dearly.
OK, Spell Check and heat in the Winter are pretty very nice indeed.
I have always found electric guitars to be fascinating (I built
them professionally for a few years). I've already forgotten more
about vintage electric guitars and AMC automobiles than one should
I spend a lot of time thinking about

On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
I like to see my friends and hear some live music. Rubbing your
back and shoulders. Feeding your cat. Cooking a wonderful meal.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I've got some righteous scars! When a small boy at the beach asked
me about the origin of a rather large one on my back I told him "It
was a shark and its still out there in the water!". He refused to
even get wet that day.

You respect Bob Denver as an existential hero, Homer style.
...you are a kind soul. You have avoided social dictates and have
become anything other than a embittered suburban consumer watching
all the wars from your couch. Just please bring something to the
party. I feel that selfish people do the least harm when they are
paired with other narcissistic types, if that sounds like you,
please run along and find your soul mate elsewhere. Emotional
intelligence and empathy are qualities I can't do without. I would
like to find someone who deserves to be adored.

luck in finding someone special or at least have a fine time
