My self-summary
Read on, and be amused! If you're not completely satisfied upon completion, then... you lose.

Anyway, enough about you. Here's me!:

I'm an old school gear head, the untamable James Dean-type. And, if you don't know, he was a pretty awesome guy. Heck, I was named 'James' after him! (Okay, I was named after my Grandpa, but who's counting...)

In other news, I come from several generations of drag racing, and fast, loud cars are one of my passions. I also enjoy writing, having self-published a book, just for fun (actually mostly for money), so brains are also part of the package. Need proof? I know what the word 'adiaphorous' means. Just don't ask me how to say it.

In the past year or so, I've become an avid U.S. coin collector, which probably stems from my love of American history. Either that or the fact that I just like money in general.


I think cheese is AWESOME.
What I’m doing with my life
Besides trying to get a multi-million dollar writing career started, I'm a full-time artist/graphic designer, and occasionally I work in my Uncle's high performance automotive shop, which I love. Getting to work around and with race cars all the time is awesome. Someday, I'd actually like to travel the country and race for a living, doing artwork and writing at the same time, but what I'm doing now is the next best thing.

Although, I feel that testing mattresses and/or ice cream would be an awesome job.
I’m really good at
As previously stated, I'm an artist, first and foremost, and I love writing. Everyone (even the complete, unbiased stranger) has enjoyed my work. You can check it out for yourself on Amazon, just search for 'The Ballad of Carson Creek'. Playing guitar and composing music is another talent that I posses, but it's a talent that I don't use as often as I should. I've been told I make killer mixtapes, though, and I agree.
I'm also pretty good at breathing--been doing it my whole life. And, lastly, I'm an excellent blinker. Practice makes perfect. Go ahead. Blink for me. Prove to me our compatibility. BLINK FOR ME.
The first things people usually notice about me
How well I breathe and blink.

Unless I happen to have a leech hanging off my face. Then they'd probably notice that first.

"Honey, look at the leech on that guy's face!"
"Yeah, but he's blinking like a total boss! I'm leaving you for him."
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I love classic films, Rear Window being my favorite, but I can appreciate modern offerings as well, an example being Mad Max: Fury Road, which I thouroughly enjoyed.

A few others:
-American Graffiti
-The Royal Tenenbaums
-Raiders of the Lost Ark
-Blue Valentine
-Star Wars (OT)
-Forrest Gump
-Sunset Boulevard
-Breakfast At Tiffany's
-Ed Wood
-Pulp Fiction
And the list goes on. Pretty much anything directed by Hitchcock, Tarantino, Wes Anderson or Billy Wilder. I'm a bit of a film snob, I guess. But I'm okay with that.

I'm all over the map when it comes to music. Everything from Sigur Ros to Ozzy Osbourne, Led Zeppelin to The National. I go through phases of doo-wop, soundtracks and/or obscure 1970s progressive rock. It'd be easier to say what I don't care for all that much: rap and most country, and there are even a few songs from those genres that I'm able to stand. (And a few family members have been wearing me down as far as country goes... I'm getting used to it.)

Don't watch much TV, but I do find The Office amusing, along with Family Guy (giggity), The Simpsons, early Entourage, and Eastbound and Down (my favorite). I lost track of Dexter and Breaking Bad, but I did enjoy them while I was keeping up.

And I don't really read books much, either; I just write 'em.

UPDATE: Lately, the more I watch and study it, Pulp Fiction is closing rapidly on Rear Window for the top spot on my fave film list. And, for the record, I LIKE mayo on my fries. Shut up, Jules.

Food... Don't like sauerkraut, peanut brittle, mustard, baked beans and grapefruit (though I love the smell of grapefruit, probably one of the best-smelling things ever). Pretty much everything else is A-okay. Except bugs.
Six things I could never do without
I'm not that hard to please... As long as I have my iPhone, I'm pretty happy. And cash. Can't live without that... Oh, probably oxygen. How about food and water? Are socks and underwear one, two or three things? Whatever, I lost count.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
- What do blind deaf people dream about? This greatly perplexes me. If you have an answer, please share.

- Why do so many girls write 'love to laugh' on their profiles? I mean, isn't that a given? I never once walked out of a hilarious movie and said, "God... I hate laughing." I just don't understand you, I guess.

- Sex. Haha, just kidding. No I'm not.
On a typical Friday night I am
Since I usually work for myself, pretty much any night can be Friday night... Maybe a bit of grocery shopping, perhaps going out for a drink, possibly trying to break the sound barrier, probably working on my time machine.

But most likely just eating pizza and thinking about girls in Yoga pants. THERE. I said it. Happy now? God, you're so nosey.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Hmm... I can't do a handstand. Well, there are probably a lot of things I can't do, but that's the first thing that rushed to my head. Pun. INTENDED.

I wanna be a millionaire playboy when I grow up.

After 20 years, I still think the three daughters on Step by Step are hot as hellfire. Go ahead. Laugh.
You should message me if
You're Kate Beckinsale or Sienna Miller. Heck, you can BOTH message me. But why in the world are you on an Internet dating site?? You're both married! I won't tell anyone, though...


If you're not on the aforementioned VIP list, but you're still a sexy-- er, I mean 'an attractive, sweet person who enjoys laughing (haha), loving, and late night drives to nowhere', hit me up. I'm pretty easy to get along with.

*If I don't reply, one of three things has happened:

1: you're neither Kate Beckinsale NOR Sienna Miller

2: you're just not my type. I'm not a stuck-up, shallow jerk, I just know what I'm attracted to, and I don't see any reason to waste someone's valuable time. Namely mine. (I kid, I kid)

Or, C: You just say 'hey'. 'Hey's for horses. Why the long face? C'mon, give me something to work with here!
Unless you're incredibly beautiful and super interesting. If that's the case, you can just send me a message full of random numbers and I'll reply.
The two of us
