"We were somewhere around Barstow on the edge of the desert when the drugs began to take hold. I remember saying something like "I feel a bit lightheaded; maybe you should drive...." And suddenly there was a terrible roar all around us and the sky was full of what looked like huge bats, all swooping and screeching and diving around the car, which was going about a hundred miles an hour with the top down to Las Vegas. And a voice was screaming "Holy Jesus! What are these goddamn animals?"
The above is one of the best openings of any literature ever.
I watch more movies than TV but I do enjoy many of HBOs dramas as well as the stupid (yet brilliant) comedies on FX. Additionally, as with everyone else on the planet, I find "Firefly" to be superb.
As for movies, "The Big Lebowski" is a masterpiece as is "The Seven Samurai". I do enjoy foreign films but I also enjoy a well-made comedy like "Anchorman". Rifftrax from the MST3K guys are absolutely indispensable for navigating the horrors of modern Hollywood.
I am a huge music fan. Some of my very favorites: Bob Dylan (often called Bob Fucking Dylan), Leonard Cohen (Leonard Fucking Cohen), Tom Waits (Tom Fucking Waits), William Elliot Whitmore, R. L. Burnside, Iron & Wine, The Beatles, The Stones, Eilen Jewell, Nick Drake, Gov't Mule, Led Zeppelin, etc.
If you like Nickelback... well, it's not gonna work.
I like going to good (a good place can be anything from a shady looking food truck to somewhere requiring a tie) restaurants and trying new things. I am a bit of a foodie that way. I can't see myself living too far from a major city since the cuisine in many suburbs is lacking.
Also, green curry is one of the best things ever in the history of ever. Thai and Indian food is excellent since those cultures have vegetarian dining to an art form. I'm not a vegetarian but I like having the option of eating amazing vegetarian food rather than just bastardized western dishes that taste like they are lacking in ingredients... because they are.
-My ne'er-do-well friends
I should probably list "The Big Lebowski" since this life we live in would be an empty, hollow shell without it.
Also, feel free to message me. This is the internet, not some bar where outmoded social rules of having the guy make the first move exist. If you think I am somewhat worthwhile, don't wait until I stumble upon your profile and message you. There are myriad reasons why I may not have messaged you despite you being a very interesting and cool person.
