For those who kept reading:
I'm a full time IT guy, almost 20 years into my career (yeah I started early), part time musician and dj. I started working in IT to pay for the music career..and well..it's still paying for it lol
I was born in Germany (Air Force brat) grew up mostly outside of DC, and bounced around the Northeast for a couple years after high school before kicking off my IT career in Boston.
I've been in Texas since 2003, and having grown up in the military I get itchy feet every couple years. In the 11 years I've been here I've moved 7 times. Apart from a move to Dallas for 18 months, I've spent that whole time in San Antonio. Although, I am starting to wonder if I'm in the right city lol the volume of 80+% matches in Austin and Dallas are seriously kicking the shit out of San Antonio.
Oh yeah.. I suck at having my picture taken, and I'm way more charming in person than online. I have a very low tolerance for hypocrisy; caveat emptor.
"No sympathy for the devil; keep that in mind. Buy the ticket, take the ride...and if it occasionally gets a little heavier than what you had in mind, well...maybe chalk it off to forced conscious expansion: Tune in, freak out, get beaten."
Hunter S. Thompson
And I'm absolutely exceptional at being terrible with money, but it's mine, I'm not in debt and I've a respectable retirement fund. But hey, it's just money, and you can't take it with you.
Drinking you under the table.
Non-fiction and technical reading, history, politics, splatterpunk, horror, suspense.
The Marketplace series, Anne Rice, Stephen King, Hunter S Thompson, Robert Heinlein, Poppy Z Brite, Venus in Furs, DeSade, Heinlein, etc..
I read Sun Tzu's "The Art of War", Marcus Aurelius's "Meditations" and Robert Greene's "The 48 Laws of Power" once a year
Comedy (the drier the better), dramas, action, sci-fi, musicals, the occasional twisted asian horror flick

True Detective, Criminal Minds, Luther, Lie to Me, The Wire, House, Game of Thrones, Blacklist, House of Cards, Family Guy, American Dad, Oz, The Tudors, Archer, the first couple seasons of Weeds. Anything kinda dry and dark, but with a sense of humor
Mostly anything. Yeah, I know it's a cliche, but I've been playing one instrument or another since childhood, so my musical tastes range from classical to punk to 90's alternative and grunge, etc..
the spicer the better, not a fan of eggplant, avocados and cucumber, aside from that I'm willing to give it a try
3) my pooches
5) the constant cognitive dissonance caused by being a cynic and a hopeless romantic
6) a challenge
Why a significant plurality of profiles on here have some comment detailing how sarcastic the person. I'm honestly about to start keeping track of how many times I see that lol
I also wonder why there is a prevalence of people unable to discern the difference between there, they're, and their as well as your and you're, wear/where/were ( I don't know how that last one gets all fuckered, and yet it does..)
But mostly I think about ways to advance; what's the next step, what's the next thing I could be doing. What is the thing I'm going to do in life so that after I'm gone, people who never knew me will know I was here. I'm pretty driven, and the curse of it is that I have a hard time being complacent.
Also if you get all those references, you're awesome.
Sometimes I think I'm still 21. And then my body punishes me for it lol but then I'm too stubborn to listen, and the dance plays on
Also, this is a dating site, if you don't have any pictures posted, you can skip over messaging me. If you talk to someone in person, you're both able to see what the other person looks like. The closest analog to that on a website is a simple photo.
