This just in... I am somewhat verbose it would appear, both in person and written communication. I suggest reading through the questions answered portion of this site, because often I'll not only answer the question, then add a comment. Re-reading these have provided a better window to peer into ones head than the standard "six things you can't do without" or "what's the most private thing you want to publicly make decidedly unprivate right here on the super exclusive okcupid site?" And comments are always better than the canned answers provided on the tests. Take a peek, I wont tell. But it's only fair I showed you mine, now you show me yours!
So, I guess I'm doing good.
So, what should I put here, tell me.
Ska. The strongest anti-depression cure, available without a prescription. Bands currently inhabiting my ipod falling under "skabrella":
Reel Big Fish, Less Than Jake, Suburban Legend, Chase Long Beach, Skankin' Pickle, Save Ferris, The Toasters, Streetlight Manifesto. Sure some of these could fall into other music types but it's my list so there.
Rock-and-roll, 5% 60's era, a gallon and a half of 70's slanting towards progressive (what today would be alternative) and 6.9 cups of classic (when they start to call it oldies I am going to get so upset I just may write a strongly worded letter to someone.) Forensic ipod evidence: Pink Floyd, Rush, Led Zep, Black Sabbath, Shooting Star, Peter Frampton, Meatloaf.
Eighties, well pepper and fly crap them 80's. Some I love because it's good, some because my impressionable skull macaroni was al dente' when MTV exploded and told me that it was good, and some because I smoked pot. In no particular order from the ipot: siegue siegue sputnik, Oingo Bongo, Screaming Blue Messiahs, The Cars, Journey. You were there right? The eighties were a mess, just say eighties music and if you were there, you know.
90's, the turn of the century/millennium and the present. I like the evolution of music has taken, Linkin Park, Tool, alternative music in general. Some more obscure stuff too, Toy Matinee, Brother, Black 47. Local bands that had so much talent that if not for the stupid way radio markets work, could've been, Should've been, bigger than U2, I'm speaking of, B. B. Chung King and the Screaming Buddha Heads. Now search for Buddahheads in Itunes, I'll wait...
Movies, TV, sure! Most everything sci-fi, except the c movies like Battle piranha cyborg beachparty. I made that up, but you know what I mean right? You're hip and with it, on top of everything and down 'wit it, 'aight?
Bests: Forest Gump/Shawshank Redemption tie. 3 O'clock High, Ferris Bueller's day off, Star Wars(s) , Avatar in Imax 3D, Field of Dreams.
TV: Documentaries, Stargate and the spin offs, Lost, Fringe, Archer (animated Get Smart, The Office, and Sex In The City ), there is more but, as I've far surpassed the tl/dr limit so long ago, I'll shaddap and take a breath, let you talk. Oh, quiet eh, well I'll continue then.
Sports car, life's too short to be driving slow.
Music / Media
The word "approved" when it appears on the screen at the check-out when the ATM card is used. Call me an approval whore, but I am just that insecure, got extra approval you don't need, sent it to me. I'll take 2nd hand approval, hell, backhanded compliments accepted too!
Electricity, seriously, try living without it, I have and life gets lousy quick when suddenly it's 1880 in your 2014+ life. Off grid? Sure as long as I can have solar, wind or a ton of coppertops.
My boys, spawn of my loin, heir to my air, and the top two reasons why I know karma exists, they are exactly like me at that age (grampa's everywhere smugly enjoy their well earned vicarious revenge). Same reason they are at the bottom of the list too, every parent should get a peace prize on their kids birthdays just for not strangling the precious gifts they are! Ok, FBI profilers, have fun with that paragraph. :)
So why place this somewhat serious rant amongst the rest of my running on, and why here. Because it is the most private thing (after being a smoker) I'd admit here, with actual risk attached. So with that, let's wrap up this meeting with the standard, any questions? Great, another productive complete waste of time. Please be kind to everyone, even the assholes, if it weren't for them we could not appear so wonderfull.
And if you can tell me why "manslaughter" is 66% "laughter".
