I was born (10/18/78), live in Hagerstown, MD. I graduated from Middletown High School in 1997. I moved to Hagerstown in 2005 from Myersville, MD where I lived since my parents adopted me in 1978. I have a sister who is a few years younger and lives in Florida with her husband. I have a 9 year old English Springer Spaniel named Teek (after a character in the Ewoks movie) and a 1 year old King Charles Spaniel named Rocky (after the movie and his father).
I am very Liberal and follow politics but as long as you are open-minded when it comes the world you likely will click with me. I consider myself to be Agnostic and don't care if you follow a certain religion but at least know there are many forms of religions out there and please don't try to change my beliefs, act as if your views are above all others. I am a animal lover, especially dogs. I have a very soft spot in my heart for them.
I also help my parents take care of my two grandmothers aged 95 and 96. I also am a dog babysitter for my neighbor. Payed to watch them poop! It is very rewarding helping others and makes others in need happy when I can help out so I try and be there for everyone. I sadly lost both grandfathers to Alzheimers in the past ten years and it has only made my family tighter.
When it comes to music I cant stand today's mainstream music or anything deemed popular by radio/t.v.. Most of the musical artists I listen to have been around at least 15-20 years. Red Hot Chili Peppers, Bruce Springsteen and The Clash are my three favorites. I also love old school punk rock and classic rock. The Cure, David Bowie, The Ramones, Misfits (Danzig era), Fugazi, Stiff Little Fingers, The Who, Bob Dylan, Dropkick Murphys, Creedence Clearwater Revival, Johnny Cash, The Pogues, Jesus and Mary Chain, T.Rex, Van Morrison, The Beach Boys, The Doors, Rocket From the Crypt just to name a few others.
Huge movie fan. I currently own over 1,000 dvds/blu rays. My favorite genre is by far horror movies from the 30's-80's. I often go to horror conventions as well. I also am a HUGE Star Wars fan and have been pretty much my entire life.
Horror: Texas Chainsaw Massacre, Suspiria, Jaws, The Exorcist, The Changeling, The Evil Dead, Salem's Lot, Universal Monster movies, Hammer horror, anything zombie releated (though mostly older zombie movies), Vincent Price...you get the picture. I hate most remakes and most of the current mainstream horror films.
Some non-horror favorites: E.T., Rocky, anything Clint Eastwood (favorite actor), Goodfellas, High Fidelity, American Beauty, Fight Club, Big Fish, Stand By Me, The Godfather trilogy, Blazing Saddles, Mystic River, Raging Bull, Who Framed Roger Rabbit?, Terminator 2, Robocop, Across The Universe, (500) Days of Summer, Willow, The Goonies, See No Evil Hear No Evil, The Wild Bunch, Casino, To Kill A Mockingbird, A.I. Artificial Intelligence, Predator, A Clockwork Orange
The Walking Dead, Dexter, Weeds, True Blood, Family Guy, Community, WWE, Raising Hope, Orange is the New Black, The Goldbergs, Toy Hunter, Comic Book Men, Pawn Stars, ESPN, NFL Network, Real Time With Bill Maher, The Daily Show with Jon Stewart,
I don't read a lot however I seem toto like to read a lot of biographies. Anthony Kiedis' Scar Tissue and I Slept With Joey Ramone are great. Cash by Johnny Cash is a must read because he led such an amazing life as wellwell. To Kill a Mockingbird, Animal Farm, Frankenstein, Stephen King and of course, Curious George!
I am a sports fan. HUGE Philadelphia Eagles, Flyers and Sixers fan along with the Baltimore Orioles.
I eat too much of it, need to loose weight but I love Italian food a lot and a good steak. I also like Chinese and my grandmother, who stopped cooking (she is 95) always cooked an amazing roast beef. How I miss that. Nobody can figure out how to make the stuff she did even when she oversees the cooking operation. I also drink socially when out with friends. Love sweet tea (though rarely drink due to caffeine) and Dr. Pepper!
Food (which is good and bad)/water
Anyways...I don't expect too much out of this but hey, feel free to contact me. Oh and for what it's worth...I do not have a paying account on this website. I have a free profile so if for some reason i'm rated (HAH!) I can't see it. I personally see no use in paying for this site when chances are I wont end up connecting with anyone.
