Why am I here? I'm looking for friendship, sparring partners, wild-assed crushes and thinking folks.
A very dear friend said to me a while ago "you are one of the most alive people I know". That was just about the nicest thing anyone has said to me.
Yes that is me in my photo. Yes it's old and yes you cannot see my face. If you felt it necessary to comment on these things we probably are not a good match. I will send current photos to an email address or a cell phone if you desire. I live an open and honest life, but I still believe in discretion and integrity. That's why I don't post a 'face' picture here.
If you came to me on a Quickmatch, hey, get the full EmperorP experience. Go look at my profile!
Starting a new business of buying and selling collectible art- mostly 20th C prints, paintings and drawings. I might like some help if you have a good eye, want to learn, like 'picking' and can wrangle canvases with me. Big points if you know anything about framing and/or conservation!
I punch up, not down. You should too. That is very important.
I can tell a syrah from a cabernet, a double maduro from a colorado, a 20 gauge from a 12, and a hawk from a handsaw.
I read several books a month. All genres pretty much except romance. Oh, and no vampire books.
The Magnificent Seven and The Godfather (all 3) are at the top of my desert island list.
I will miss Jon Stewart, even if I like the new guy. Breaking Bad might have been the best serial storytelling I've ever seen although West Wing still gives chase after all these years.
My taste in music is so broad I don't try to label it. If it's authentic, well played (and well-sung) and compelling I'll listen to it. I pay attention to lyrics and I'm a sucker for clever words. If you don't know who Junior Brown is or why The Bottle Rockets are America's greatest rock n roll band, we might have some catching up to do.
Ooops. that's ONE.
Transport I need to move! Recent health issues limit my bicycling so it's usually a green car.
Affection. I'd make a lousy hermit.
Wild transgressive sex.
Wild transgressive teaching.
Making really good tea.
Applying legal ethics rules to real life.
Cigars. (Cigars is vegetables, you know?)
Getting back to my best shooting form.
Making lots of money and giving away lots of money.
If you have a poem you love that you want to share with me, or
If you are any or all of the following: Curious about B/D/S/M, polyamory life or finding your place in this world. If you are (any or all of): interested in health care policy, polyamorous, smart, a good shotgunner, want to teach me some funky bass tricks, want to be a good shotgunner, in need of a chicago-area drinking buddy, submissive or if you like to chat, or
Hell. Just if you want to chat. that might be enough.
