My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I like to date people who also like dating several people at once or have an open primary relationship. i thrive on new experiences and being around people who live passionately: in worlds of words, images, performance, artisanry. I'm looking for someone who shares my curiosity and wants to explore. My ideal match doesn't necessarily share my specific interests, but she does share my inquisitiveness and independence.
My interests include writing, gardening, backcountry sports, travel, social theory, arts, history, culture, "green" construction, cooking, music, social justice, dogs, teaching, and a few dozen other things.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I am remodeling my old house, work on an organic farming co-op, and do some studying on green design and construction. I take my dog to fun places in the mountains and can't wait to snowboard this season. my latest hobby: blacksmithing. i have taken some classes and will set up a forge in the next year or 12.
For money, I am a Master plumber and mostly install mechanical systems on large construction sites like st joseph hospital and cherokee power plant. I am an active member of my trade union and involved in local politics. I never work on my doctoral dissertation and don't travel as much as I'd like, but generally, I pretty much do what I like and like what I do.
In former lives I've been a high school history teacher, DC political speechwriter, CU journalism instructor, PhD student, and freelance writer and editor. Much happier now that I work for a living!
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Showing a sincere interest in other people's knowledge and getting them to tell me about their interests and experiences.
Oh, and competitive watermelon eating, so, like, don't even try me...
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Warm smile and easy manner...or that's what I like to think people notice. Mostly I get comments about my perpetually f@cked up hair. (Others tell me they notice physical characteristics that modesty prevents me from revealing at this time...)
My nicknames at work are Professor, Big E, Easy, Evel...and so on. That probably says less about my real character than it does about how I work with some real characters, but there it is.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I like homestyle cooking no matter where its from in the world--it's all soul food to me. My local favorite is anything with green chile and a vietnamese place on south federal.
really dig st vincents latest. I especially like new music that builds on traditional styles like Jack White, Jeff Tweedy, Frank Black, Beck, Tom Waits, Nick Cave, etc. I prefer music with an edge, i.e. died-in-the-mines bluegrass over barefoot-hippie bluegrass, minor over major key, power over pretty. I also listen to a lot of jazz, blues, folk, old reggae-ska-rock steady, old-school and outlaw country, punk, hardcore, metal, classic rock, hip hop, funk, and all kinds of "alt-" and "fusions". When I want to hear what the kids are listening to, I tune in to AM 1190 or 1340, and I'm almost always impressed. Kind of a music geek.
My movie taste varies between low-brow-Farelly-fart humor to art-house-Bergman-painful drama. Some of my favorite recent directors are Paul Thomas Anderson and Pedro Almodovar. re-viewed Peter Greenaway's The Pillow Book after 20+ years and LOVED it. Probably a film geek, too!
Lately, I've been reading up on gardening and home repair. I used to read a lot of social theory, mainly Marxian cultural studies. I don't read much fiction, but I like Sartre, Joyce, Garcia Marquez and the occasional bestseller. Despite all those years in school, I'm not that into reading, but it is the best medium for expressing left-brain thoughts.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Big mountains, big ocean, mindblowing sex, soulful music, floppy dogs, and hot green chile.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Well, I AM a dude afterall. Besides the ever-present primal carnal thoughts of Pam Grier, Paz Vega, Bardot, et al, I think about gray water irrigation, passive solar design, and urban homesteading.
I've been trying NOT to think about how interactive media are used to turn entertainment into a form of exploitative production (no one needs to know what that means...really, no one).
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Either hanging with friends, catching live music, or if I'm not feeling social, taking the dog to the park, stargazing, cooking, and watching a movie. As of fall 2013, I'm doing crazy overtime, so either happy hour or other early night is the norm these days.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I am an un-closeted dork. My favorite books are atlases with detailed technical maps and dictionaries with etymological histories. I dig esoteric skills. Everyone is turned on by good massage, cooking, dance, etc. Me, too, but I can be equally seduced by knitting, entomology, or carpentry. I think the phrase, "sexy librarian" is redundant.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
you are open minded, appreciate a rapier wit, and something here strikes a chord (apologies for the mixed metaphors!)
...you appreciate aspiration as much as or more than ambition.
