Unlike I am in most things I do, brevity is not an attribute I seemed to have grasped here. My apologies in advance.
"Basically from nature and smoking drugs and doing different things, I've self learned myself"
Hi there. My name is David, but everyone calls me Elvis (or Delvis). I'm a hobbyist winemaker, musician, writer, nerd, gamer and avid DIY enthusiast.
I'm used goods as my body seems to be falling apart more and more each day, but that shit won't stop me. I'm a cancer survivor. Nothing keeps me down.
Currently making some big life changes. Diet and mental attitude changes to be specific. Turning my life around. Someone who is encouraging of this would be helpful.
I hate idle hands and thus I always have multiple projects around the house as well as a minimum of 2 bands I regularly play with. I am NOT the guy that will be spending all his time with you. I live my busy life and I love it. However, communication is key and I'm a hopeless romantic, so don't think I won't be thinking of you all the time or trying my damndest to see you every night.
Just the facts, Jack:
- You can bet I try to teach myself a new skill every day.
- Genuinely, I give everyone I meet the respect they deserve until they prove me otherwise.
- Always give more than I get.
- Very slow to judge.
- Intuition. I've got it in spades. (I usuallly see damn near anything coming a mile away).
- Always have a smile on my face.
- You can always count on me to make you laugh.
- Through thick and thin, I am always there, even if you don't know it.
- I probably own more dresses than you.
I'm also a pretty good puzzle solver.
I've been told I look like Orson Wells more times than I can remember.
I am apparently "the jolliest man this side of Uranus"

Also, if you like this recording of my drummer and I just fucking around:
