My self-summary
Here is the main reason for my presence at OKCupid:
Everything else written here is simply filler for the insatiably curious.

So how many of you awesome American babes are thinking about moving to Canada?

About Me
It's difficult to be objective in describing oneself sometimes, but here's a crude stab at that Fat Ham: An eclectic and somewhat paradoxical combination of diverse talents, perceptions, sensitivities and insatiable curiosities, whose capabilities run the gamut from directing irresistible, unwavering brute force against immovable objects, to a desire for complete, sweet surrender with trusted company. Someone rather uncompromising regarding ethics and whatever else is deemed important. Desiring of it all and not ready to settle for much less.

I stay completely outside the Punch and Judy show of what is referred to as "democracy" and politics, but consider it amusing to watch and comment on. Kinda/sorta like people who follow professional wrestling. They root for one brute or another, but they know it's all completely fake and that the winner has been determined beforehand. However, for some twisted reason perhaps unknown to themselves, they still find watching the hype and drama supremely entertaining.

I'm a very sincere, down to earth guy who likes to put honesty and integrity above most other things in life. I love the simple pleasures in life. Relaxed times with good friends & family, good food and good music. I am more of a one on one person than a mass audience partier. A real nature lover, I enjoy the beach, the ocean and especially forests, lakes and streams.

I also have a sense of adventure and am looking for someone else who has one too. I like traveling and exploring new places and experiences. A bit of a rebel at heart, I have always liked to color outside the lines in the coloring book, travel the path least trodden, cut my own path through the forest.

These days, my biggest passion in life is music, so in addition to my work life and business ventures, I have also been a pro musician for many years. I recently returned to Canada after spending nearly nine years in the New Orleans music scene. In the future, I will be shifting my priorities more toward the family and relationships aspects of my life.

I am tall, sarcastic, smart, yet dumb, and impossibly groovy!

My philosophy of life can be summed up by the following story:

An old Cherokee is teaching his grandson about life. "A fight is going on inside me," he said to the boy.

"It is a terrible fight and it is between two wolves. One is evil - he is anger, envy, sorrow, regret, greed, arrogance, self-pity, guilt, resentment, inferiority, lies, false pride, superiority, and ego." He continued, "The other is good - he is joy, peace, love, hope, serenity, humility, kindness, benevolence, empathy, generosity, truth, compassion, and faith. The same fight is going on inside you - and inside every other person, too."

The grandson thought about it for a minute and then asked his grandfather, "Which wolf will win?"

The old Cherokee simply replied, "The one you feed."
What I’m doing with my life
Following my passions. How would you like to be one of them?
I’m really good at
Figuring out what is wrong with computers, seeing the real truth about things.... including myself, getting to number one on Google search results for my businesses, playing Bad A$$ Blues Harmonica.
The first things people usually notice about me
That I sure ain't from around here, or anyplace else they have been or can even likely imagine.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
My fave authors are P.D. Ouspensky, G.I. Gurdjieff, Rodney Colin, Vernon Howard and James Lee Burke.

I liked Six Feet Under a whole lot and American Beauty too. Breaking Bad is most probably the finest television drama ever produced.

What kinda music do you suppose a Blues Boy likes?

I guess that Chinese and Vietnamese are about my fave foods other than Mexican.
Six things I could never do without
I spend a lot of time thinking about
The real meaning of life and whether personal evolution is even possible.
On a typical Friday night I am
When not performing at a local venue, I am most probably just sitting here waiting for you to write that effervescent, witty reply.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I generally do not suffer fools or foolettes gladly.
You should message me if
You want someone who will tell you the truth instead of only what they think you wish to hear.
The two of us
