I love to cook, read, draw and paint, or anything that is artistically related. I am rediscovering a healthier lifestyle and I've actually lost about 40 pounds in the past four months.
My sense of humor is goofy, inappropriate and over-the-top. I don't like sarcasm for sarcasm's sake and believe the people who say that "sarcasm is their second language" are just giving themselves license to be jerks to other people. How about we try to re-cultivate intellect in its purest form, rather then succumbing to using its ugly cousin, sarcasm?
I'm a good person, who likes to help children, the elderly, animals and anyone else who is in need. If you like dating guys who are douche bags or secretive with their feelings, I invite you to look elsewhere. I am an open book and wear my heart on my sleeve, for better or worse.
I give good massages, I'm a good big spoon and I am looking for a woman worthy of the affections of a good man.
Anything else you need to know, please feel free to ask. Like I said, I am an open book.
Music: too much to get into.. Everything from jazz to metal to classical, to funk, to reggae, hip hop, etc. Right now, listening to Billie Holiday, Pantera, Adam Rogers, Sly and the Family Stone, Medeski Martin and Wood, Frank Sinatra, John McLaughlin, Mr. Bungle (one of my all time favorites) and Frank Zappa (one of the biggest influences on me musically...). I also love Charlie Hunter, Tuck Andress, a ton of classic rock from the Doors to Zep to Pink Floyd (another huge influence)... Marley, old Chili Peppers, Metallica, Sepultura, Meshuggah, Ella Fitzgerald (my favorite female vocalist of all time), Esperanza Spalding, Rodrigo y Gabriella, Paco DeLucia, etc. etc. ad nauseum... Also, Oceansize is one of my favorite new bands (eventhough they just broke up...)
Movies: again too much to get into, but off the top of my head: Anchorman, Grandma's Boy, The Hangover, Step Brothers, City of Lost Children, Silence of the Lambs, Yes man, Etrenal Sunshine of the Spotless mind, American Beauty, The Usual Suspects, Swimming with Sharks, Happy Gilmore, Borat, Bruno, Ali G in Da House, Talladega nights, Supersize Me, Waiting for Superman, Dr. Strangelove, Putney Swope, A Clockwork Orange, Goodfellas, The Basketball Diaries, The Breakfast Club, Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World, Youth In Revolt, Superbad, Knocked Up, 40 Year-Old Virgin, Dinner For Shmucks, Pirates of the Carribean, Dead Man, Crazy Heart, What's Eating Gilbert Grape, Benny and Joon... I know I am missing TONS... I could go on forever with this as well...
Food: I love ethnic foods. Middle Eastern, Indian, Thai, etc. It's hard to find a good bowl of Pho in Miami (That is Vietnamese, for you who don't know) I miss Seattle for this reason (and many others, to be frank...) But I am open to most anything gastronomically related.
