My self-summary
Native New Yorker...born in Spanish can be found somewhere on Spring Street. Four eyes...two of them usually orange...strong sense of self & personal style...sometimes absurd sense of humor, Art School Grad, self employed in the Music Industry with a disregard for the 9-5 lifestyle. I get exercised when I'm late for work. Guess that alone sums up a lot. Enjoy reading profiles of women who are "65+ % enemy" to see if we might really try to kill each other while stuck in a elevator together. The seemingly obligatory shirtless bathroom pic taken with my phone coming soon.
What I’m doing with my life
Worked with the same person for from 1988 - 2006 helping to make the world a better sounding place. One guitar amplifier at a time. Very happy but far from complacent. Otherwise, I'm trying to find someone who'll help me buy some donuts, steal a Police Car and go joy riding.
I’m really good at
Diplomacy, arguing (constructively) Critical thinking. Thinking in general. Maybe having toys like Chemistry Set & Erector Set when I was kid instead of Play Station might have something to do with it? Chaos Management. Shooting pool...shooting straight, "showing up"
The first things people usually notice about me
5 different people could give 5 different answers. Otherwise, not looking my age seems to come up a lot. Especially when I get carded.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Live to eat not eat to live. Guess that means in modern termonology I'm a foodie, but my friends have a better relationship with the wine in my bar than I do. Pulp Fiction, The Ghost Writer, Kill Bill l & ll. If I watch TV, prefer stuff like Biographies & History Channel, Family Guy too. Sunday New York Times, books on Pop Culture, Photography & Architecture + literature that makes my head hurt (like Toni Morrison's Playing in The Dark), WNYC FM Radio, Miss MY MTV from the 80's when it was about music videos, love old TV footage of music performances like Old Grey Whistle Test. Soul Train for the clothes & dance line alone makes me smile. Always curious about what others are listening to. Here's where I get cut off ? - Massive Attack, Portishead, Electric Miles Davis (saw him 4th row), The Stones, The Who, Motown, Burt Bacharach/Hal David, Joy Division/New Order, The Cure, Peter Gabriel, Nigerian Funk from the 70's, Rickie Lee Jones, Nashville, Steely Dan, Iggy & The Stooges, Fleetwood Mac, Joni Mitchell, Public Enemy, Elington/Strayhorn, most Radiohead, Wayne Shorter, Curtis Mayfield, Sly & The Family Stone, King Crimson, Dylan (Oh Mercy is so overlooked AND beyond well recorded), Black Sabbath, Justin Beiber...just making sure you're still paying attention, Deep Purple/Rainbow, prefer Nina Simone over Billie Holiday (shoot me), Metric, Luna, Muse, The Cars, Chic/Nile Rodgers, Queen, David Bowie...
Six things I could never do without
Brunch with a rotating crowd of interesting new people after few rounds of Pacman or Atari at my place first. Stoopid good Pizza, Vacuum Tubes (Wikipedia search this one?) Vinyl...Sex, Drugs & Rock n' Roll.....that's seven. Math clearly not a strong point...lose the drugs and a more interesting list would be things I CAN do without!
I spend a lot of time thinking about
What might have existed before the "Big Bang" or "God Creating himself...herself...itself..." - Excessive wear on my vinyl and if it's in fact time to have the stylus on my turntable's cartridge re-tipped. If you're primary source of music is a i-Pod, you might not understand this neurosis...when did common courtesy became something of a novelty, how to make even better Cornbread Pancakes.
On a typical Friday night I am
Trying to steal a Police Car to go joy riding
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I know where the government hides UFO's.
You should message me if
Anything I've said made you say hmmm...if you have a Foreign some of the "six things I can't do without" as much as I do...if you're willing to help steal a Police Car to go joy riding...c'mon, you saw that coming, didn't you?
The two of us
