Tall, dork, and handsome, cross between Andy Dwyer and Ron Swanson.
I'm originally from Upstate NY (where we keep all the trees), and spent 2 years in NJ (the nice part, but still... Jersey) before moving to the city 7 years ago.
Anything else you want to know about me you'll either have to read further or ask me. (Actual contact with another human? That's just crazy talk!)
I also have a Tumblr where each day I post a song about a historical event for that day. Basically I gave myself a daily research project involving music and history, for fun. This speaks volumes about me.
Or sleeping. Not gonna lie, I LOVE sleeping. I need to get a job sleeping. Like an MTA employee. (Jokes, America. I got jokes.)
Bumping my head a lot and otherwise generally injuring myself in fun new ways. My old boss called me "Crash."
Making up new lyrics to songs.
Eating delicious food. I eat the FUCK out of good food.
Bullet points, clearly.
Also apparently I look Croatian. I'm only 1/4 Croat, but the old Balkan men in my neighborhood talk to me like we're back in Karlovac.
Pretty much any Vonnegut, Heinlein, or Palahniuk. Steppenwolf, American Gods, Bossypants, League of Extraordinary Gentlemen, Jitterbug Perfume, just started ASOIAF. Currently reading: HST's Hell's Angels
Dirty Dozen, Big Lebowski, Roger Rabbit, and too many others. Too many. Most recent watched: Rogue One, Fences, Moonlight
I'm big into GoT, and I quote Futurama, 30 Rock, and Arrested Development in casual conversation. Also other shows you probably watch.
Currently watching: Taboo, Gotham, The OA, BK 99, John Oliver, @midnight, and as always: SVU and SNL
Also rewatching Homicide on DVD
I have an incredibly eclectic musical taste, but predominantly like hard rock, 90s rock & hip-hop, but I also dig folk, old country, blues, Motown, classical, jazz, etc. and I'm always up to listen to something new. Recently acquired a record player, my folks' vinyl collection, and a line of credit at the local record shop so that's been my musical obsession as of late. Most recent purchases: Rolling Stones, Parliament, RTJ3, old Kanye, Beatles.
I generally prefer food that used to have legs. I also like food from all over the world (living in Queens helps) and love trying stuff I've never had, and of course, salt potatoes. You don't even know what those are, but you love them. They're that good.
- intelligent conversation (I don't get enough)
- a creative outlet (I love making things)
- my car (it's not much, but it's a way out of town, and it's mine)
- naps (sleep is the best)
- I tried to not say "my phone" but who am I kidding?
The semantics of the OKC questions.
The logistics involved in the construction of various structures and buildings.
The paradox of HATING the tourists, but knowing my industry depends on all all the sweet money brought in by the chain-smoking Québécois and mouth-breathing Appalachians that clog our sidewalks.
Hoping Québécois women aren't offended by that last statement.
UPDATE: at least one is, she wrote to tell me.
You're 5'9" or taller. I'm serious, that's a deal breaker. Nothing against shorter women, I just very much prefer dating someone that's not drastically shorter than me.
You're GGG too.
