My self-summary
I'm a tall, long haired guy who looks good in a suit. I verge on technogeekiness. (that's a word now, deal with it) I usually don't say much, but people tend to listen when I do. I am a serious reader. My apartment looks like a nuclear event in a library.

A few years ago I was hit by a train. Honest. It is a matter of pride that I didn't get hurt riding a motorcycle or flying an airplane. It was a lot of fun trying. I walk with a cane. I do well enough in everyday transactions but my previous loquaciousness is not always there. My friends sometimes help by talking for me. Their attempts at train sounds are pretty lame. Now if they just would remember my raves about the right wing sound machine we call corporate media.

I'm political. I am sort of a socialist. To me, liberal, ultra liberal, political correctness, and pc) are appellations of honor, not just the right wing's demonizing buzzwords. I call myself a Democrat out of a misguided sense of duty. I spend my time volunteering for local candidates. Before you think impeachment, ponder president Hastert. Update, it's now speaker Boehner, are you scared yet? Pray for melanoma. Pelosi and Obama are from cities where politics is a blood sport. Why no throats cut yet? I'd rather have brought Hillary along to a knife fight.

I am compelling, cynical, and crazy. I drive a old Mercedes with a deadhead sticker. Get the joke? I only buy cars made in a union shop.
What I’m doing with my life
Getting by.
I’m really good at
Barking at the moon. Finding cool restaurants and bands. Getting speeding tickets. Pissing off "Conservative Christain, Right Wing Republican, Straight White American Males." Convincing girlfriends of aforementioned that he really is a jerk. Impromptu road trips.
The first things people usually notice about me
I look like someone who wrecked his Harley on the way to Woodstock. I always have a book with me. My ponytail. My cane. My attitude.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
My apartment looks like a nuclear event in a library. I read mostly non fiction. Right now my favorites are The Education of Henry Adams, by Henry Adams; River-Horse, by William Least Heat-Moon; The Journals of Lewis and Clark; "Bush on the Couch"; "The Truth with Jokes", by Al Franken, Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance, Stiff: The Curious Lives of Human Cadavers

Please Don't Shoot The Piano Player, Secretary, Fahrenheit 911

Do I really have to choose? Kinky Friedman ("They Ain't Makin Jews Like Jesus Anymore" is the best song ever about a bar fight) The Gypsy Kings, Squirrel Nut Zippers, Rickie Lee Jones, Steve Earle, John Prine, Lou Reed, Tom Russel, Commander Cody, Courtney Love. Mary Lee's Corvette, Squirrel Nut Zippers, Tin Hat Trio Shrug (check them out) Israel Kamakawiwo'ole (Iz) John Prine, CSNY, Johny Cash, Gabby Pahinui, Melissa Etheridge, Lucinda Williams, Patti Smith, Todd Snider Tuvan throat singing I was at The Grateful Dead's last LA show. Fuck tha LAPD. Didn't Snoop say that?

I used to like (still like) seafood but I really don't like the irresponsible way fish stocks are being depleted. Sharks taste terrible and they don't reproduce very fast. Only obese trendizoids and Asian abusers of human rights eat them. What's so cool about eating an endangered species?
Six things I could never do without
Mother Jones, 94 octane, caffeine, my Mac, my Deadhead sticker, my car (In case that wasn't implicit in my need for petrochemicals) you?
On a typical Friday night I am
Listening to live music somewhere or eating rubber chicken at some political gathering. Doing the restaurant and show thing if I have a date.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I've never seen American Idol.
You should message me if
You are brave enough. If your think the Patriot Act is unpatriotic. If we share compatible tastes in misdemeanors. You can count to 420 You can forgive the spelling errors I caught after however long they've been here.
The two of us
