My self-summary
"I hate to advocate drugs, alcohol, violence, or insanity to anyone, but they've always worked for me." -HST High-school Dropout, College graduate, self-employed and serious recreationalist. I've done a lot, and lived all over the US. from being a bum, to running night clubs, trying to manage artist, starting my own businesses and always learning the hard way. Moved to socal from florida on a whim, and i loved it. i can drive down 1 side of my hill and be surfing or a couple hours ride the other way and be snowboarding. Now in Detroit, looking for new friends to show me around. I bought a house that I am renovating on the east side, haven't met anybody in my neighborhood to hang out with. Rockstar in my own mind. Before the beard i had been called a freak in disguise, because i had to wear a suit and be fairly conservative (even covered my ear plugs for one company!) I haven't read any other guys profiles, so I don't know if there is are certain expectations of how this is supposed to go, I'm just trying to be as honest as possible without sounding cheesy. I realize the sun rises without me, so I drink too much and drive too fast. That black blur the cut between your cars in traffic, that startled you, aggrevated you and eventually made you jealous as you inch forword in traffic? That was me. A streak in the streets, and a freak most of the time. :-) a work in progress... apparently I hate writing about myself *wink*
What I’m doing with my life
Having fun, surfing, riding my motorcycle, trying to learn new things! Hiking, looking for people to teach me new skills; i want to learn to do metal work, get better at auto mechanics, get back to doing yoga, learn to mountain climb and oh holy shit i want one of those flying squirrel suits, that is so badass. Surprising people, first impressions are usually off. Got something fun, maybe dangerous? I'm up for it.
I’m really good at
Having a good time, it's my main goal in life, always has been. "what do you want to be when you grow up? 'Rich and unemployed!'" true story! I need people to inspire me to try more stuff! Sleeping late, I love my nasabed. Being quiet, some of the nicest days I have I don't have to say a word.
The first things people usually notice about me
Currently, the beard and hair, have grown a flop-hawk, though it's long enough I'm considering changing the name to a "Trump-Hawk". Normally that i am outgoing, friendly and honest to a fault (hopefully) , hopefully that I try to be very polite, I hold doors for people, say thank you, yes ma'am, no sir et cetera. On the other hand i can flip pretty quickly if someone is being rude to/around me, but then I flip back pretty quick. Oh, and besides being super witty and good looking, I'm uber modest.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Fear and loathing, this is so broad, we can talk about it over coffee/dinner/ bondage (?) Scarface, Momento, Fight Club, anything by Chuck Palahniuk, Kurt Vonnegut Charles Bukowski, the Dark Tower series, Chelsea Handler books are way funnier than i would have given her credit for, Music: My Morning Jacket, Danzig, deer tick, jane's addiction, [[tool],] puscifer, die antwoord, aphex twin, squarepusher , busdriver, everything from "americana" to hip-hop and harder rock. Way too broad of a category here, dexter, game of thrones, SOA, i love my DVR....waaaaay too broad. Music is always playing in my head..."is that an ice cream truck?"
The six things I could never do without
My family, the ocean, music, GPS (i always get lost), driving fast, Good food. Does anyone ever have something really interesting here? No.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Recreation and ways to make more money, without working much harder. Wanting to learn things but not getting around to them like photography, welding, woodworking etc...inventions, people who may inspire me, people with opposing viewpoints that can make a good arguement for them.
On a typical Friday night I am
Lately just relaxing at home, or trying to find something fun but close by, not into the club scene. Writing and trying to design better products, i want one of my inventions on an infomercial. I looove staying close to home, going down the rabbit hole online checking out new bands or DIY projects i mostly never get around to. Playing poker. Sometimes with a drink in hand. But that's why we're here, right? To find someone to show us a better way to spend our Friday nights...
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
That im having fun on here....Also (this isn't really a secret) a girl that worked in a tattoo parlor called me out because i was wearing a suit (she didn't know about the several tats underneath) so i tattooed her name on my arm to shut her up. it looks trashy and i love it. Maybe better, I'm updating and it's 4 am Saturday. (My real secrets pay my bills). Hmm, or maybe when I got molested by Andy Dick...oh, and I fart in my sleep, and regardless of what you say you do too. I don't mind.
You should message me if
You're so vain, you probably think this section's about you. You'd think we'd have fun, that's what it's all about. And i'm easy to have fun with, 'cause im down for whateva. You like funky hair and beards; or you don't because I may get bored and totally change it up (I'm nots entimental). You can teach me how to use the basic version of photoshop i just bought for my tablet; I just seem to be missing some giant, obvious point, as if there was a button I am completely missing. You like tattoos, adventurous types and guys that look like the fella in my pics. Me being a big fan of sleep doesn't bother you, i sleep late and I've earned it (You're welcome to join, i'm pretty sure i'm a good spoon). You aren't scared of someone who may challenge what you believe. Devil's advocate should be a corporate position, I might even wear a tie again.
