I’ve worked very hard to get where I am, and it’s started to payoff, but life would be better with the right person added to it. I'm ambitious, selective, warm, passionate, and like every man, I want someone who can keep me on my toes - a woman who's beautiful, super cool and smart.
It is VERY of date, but it's good background. The kindle app on my phone has become like book heroin as of late ;p
The Hunger Games books were surprisingly good, but mostly, I read nonfiction. I will say that Salman Rushdie, James Joyce, Anais Nin, and Edward Said are favorite authors of mine. I bought Ulysses by Joyce when I was in college and never got past the first couple of pages - it terrifies me. I'm increasingly learning to appreciate American authors too. I'm trying to get into Bukowski. I just purchased The Story of O.
More than anything, I like to make fun of the Fifty Shades books or anything written by Ayn Rand ;p
Music - I'm on a real 90s kick right now, especially early 90s, ie. Spin Doctors, Goo Goo Dolls, REM, Gin Blossoms. More generally?
Black Keys, Curtis Mayfield, Felix Da Housecat, Swedish House Mafia, Dire Straits, MGMT, Gogol Bordello, M83, Kraftwerk, Techno, House, Electroclash, Trance, Bally Sagoo, Nitin Sawhney, La Roux, Princess Superstar, Decemberists, Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeroes, LMFAO, dhol foundation, afro celt sound system, anything with soul, anything with rhythm.
Movies - I'm a big movie buff, especially independent films with snappy dialogue. Anything by David Lynch, Party Monster, Videodrome, anything with Jet Li or Bruce Lee or Eric Stoltz etc. I think if I watched every movie in the world, I'd like about half of them.
Shows - The Wire (possibly my all time favorite), Battlestar Galactica, Scrubs, No Reservations, the ORIGINAL Law and Order (especially the earlier seasons), possibly Portlandia (I've only seen the first episode, and it was hit or miss) to name a few. True crime type shows (especially Investigation Discovery) are a VERY guilty pleasure. I've also rewatched a lot of Beavis and Butthead recently (even guiltier pleasure I guess).
Food - I'm pretty flexible. I'm not Andrew Zimmern, but I'm adventurous. Generally, I like grilled meats, so any cuisine with that is sure to please. Vietnamese is good, but I'm really into Korean at the moment.
More than any specific cuisine, I like fresh, quality ingredients, cooked well and with lots of flavor. Locally sourced is generally nice, but it's not a matter of principle for me. I actually have a list of local restaurants I need to try ;p
News - I can't believe this one isn't listed. It's important to me to take some interest in the larger world. Moreover, where you get your news says a lot about you. I listen to a lot of NPR. Vice (VBS) is a new favorite of mine.
NOTE: Chances are if there's something you don't see on here, ASK ME. It's probably a favorite I just forgot to list. Even if you think I never heard of it, ASK ME. I'm always looking for new suggestions ;p
But then again, Friday nights are for going out. All nights are, for that matter - bars, restaurants, and the like are the only things that are open. I think the better question is what we do on our Saturdays and Sundays during the day - thats where we have more options...
No, that answer won't do. It's just cheating, hiding behind literalism to avoid saying anything of substance. And moreover, half the profiles I see on OKC say "i cant tell u cuz it wouldn't be private," so maybe it's not such a witty answer ;p.
But honestly? I think I still believe in happily ever after. Or at least I want to.
you spotted the strategically placed grammar/syntax errors.
you read all the way through this profile to get here. No cheating!
you just want to. The button's right there, for pete's sake.
NOTE: If you've been to a Tea Party, or are much more conservative than I, know this: you might make a good friend, but that's it. I'm sure you're a great person, but we just won't mesh and the chemistry won't be there.
