I'm a guy of contrasts, I'm a sports fan -Sox, Pats, B's & C's, love classical music and intellectual pursuits as well as going to see local bands play out at bars.
Three of favorite songs of mine that I don't think get played nearly enough, a little music to start us off:
(I want the car in that video too, including that GREAT interior! - 1960 Caddy in case you wanted to know).
I find myself singing the chorus of this song at random times and in a high pitch too doing my best JB impersonation.
The last time I did at work, nobody had ANY idea what I was talking about, if you're a fan of this band as I am we'll get along awesomely!
And a couple of more songs by bands that I don't think get nearly enough play in relation to the rest of their catalogues:
Barring that I'm following the words of David Wooderson:
Hear the man speak the words here:
I'm a heck of a home chef and love being in the kitchen.
I'm the KING of parallel parking, there's no spot I can't get a car into!
I'm a great listener and forever ready to be an ear to a friend.
Always know the name of the movie or tv show that "had that guy or girl who was in that thing".
give great hugs, and can pack a box for shipping or moving like a pro!
LA Confidential -
BTW How cool was Kevin Spacey in that film? Sgt. Jack Vincennes, that cat was a dapper dresser!
Swingers - "You're so money & you don't even know it!
Making the grade
Ok, now some authors and books:
A people's history of the United States" - Dr. Howard Zinn
Jimmy Breslin - architect of "New Journalism"
Judy Blume - One of my YA influences and who didn't love the "Fudge" books?
Bright lights, Big city - Jay McInerney
"The Pigman" and other books written by Paul Zindel - Another influence of mine as far as my Young Adult novel projects I'm working on writing.
Music wise I LOVE 80's New Wave & punk, Grunge,metal- and yes that includes"Hair metal" too, Classic hip hop & R&B,
classical, Jazz & Big Band.
I'm a big NPR listener, BBC news, "The Diane Rehm show", "The World" are some of my favorite programs as I'm a news junkie but also enjoy their entertainment programs - "The Moth Radio Hour", "Wait, Wait don't tell me", "Car Talk ".
"The Young Ones"
Lots of old TV shows on the retro TV channels from when I was growing up in the 70's-80's
The Rachel Maddow Show
Wish MSNBC would bring Keith Olbermann back.
I really enjoy anything on "Viceland".
I like "How to" shows like car fabrication & repair, woodworking and cooking - i'm a heck of a home chef - "America's test kitchen" & "Cook's Country".
I also like "Sherlock", "Seinfeld","Bob's Burgers", "Family Guy" "The League" & CSI.
I will always stop and watch a marathon of "How it's made" when I stumble upon it too.
Sandwiches - LOVE sandwiches & subs!
My imagination - for all those times I need to get lost for a while and also to power my writing.
Hot showers - I'm a total shower whore and I freely admit it !
Cookware - how else is a guy supposed to eat when he needs more than a sandwich?
The internet - sure I *could* live without it but I'd rather not.
I'm not putting people on here because they're not "things" but if I had to live as a "self contained unit" I could and it would't be a "nasty hang" for me - Thank you Cliff Poncier!
I also didn't put my dogs because as much as I love & miss them incredibly, they don't live with me anymore otherwise they would be at the top of my list.
If you want to see photos of them they're in my photo albums, the cutest Pugs you'll ever see!
What I want to do with my life, What my next steps are, What TRULY makes me happy?
learning to swing dance - care to be my partner?
Why so many women on here post photos of their feet .
I also some VERY interesting and amusing dating stories that nobody else can claim and my friends will tell you could ONLY happen to me!
Ask me about the time I met Sherman Helmsley - aka "George Jefferson" at a record store in Boston as proof.
I will leave you with this question: "Can you rock it like this?"
