I'm a curious and calculated thinker with all the earnestness and peculiarities that come from growing up in the Midwest (USA). I'm in love with the magic of nature and the strangeness of life. I do a lot of bike riding, music collecting, and dragging absurd jokes on way too long. I’m new to madrid and looking for all sorts of new experiences, in the city or out. Outside is better than in, I love camping, bike tours, and cold sunrises in forests. Even after the better part of a decade of vegetarianism, I still have a lot of dreams about fried chicken. I'm down for some fucking ruckus.
I’m originally from Ohio and most recently lived in Eugene, Oregon.
Tengo un Ph.D. en Química Organica desde University of Oregon con un concentración en cosas de carbón. si quieres hablar sobre las ciencias, eso me gusta mucho.
Bicicletas, bicicletas, bicicletas.
Tratando a hablar Español.
Tumbling blindly through and trying to make as much noise as possible.
I just earned a Ph.D. in Organic Chemistry at the University of Oregon with a focus on carbon materials research. I don't like to define myself by my work. But hey, if you want to nerd out, I'll nerd the hell on out.
Racing bikes, I guess.
Learning Spanish as quickly as I can. Wanna help?
Mixing cocktails, fixing hangovers, fixing bikes, road trips, euchre, probably some more useful stuff too...
Hair, pants with poorly patched crotches, how close I can come to falling over and still somehow manage to pull it out.
The first ones that come to mind (In the order that they slowly trickle on to my profile):
Libros/Books: Something Wicked This Way Comes, Eating Animals, Still Life with Woodpecker, The Road was pretty damn good, Island was my favorite book for years.
Películas/Movies: Bull Durham, Vernon Florida, Waiting for Guffman, Sonatine, Dancer in the Dark, Hellraiser, They Live, the Star Wars movies made before I was born, Sometimes I like to get really drunk and watch Constantine.
Televisión/Shows: Twin Peaks and Regular Show. Most of my screen-watchin' time is spent looking for obscure and strange footage on youtube.
Música/Music: Mates of State when they stuck to two instruments, JEFF the Brotherhood, The Books, Artichoke, Ween, Goblin, anything Kathleen Hanna touches, anything Jenny Lewis touches, The Zombies, Mean Jeans, Drive-By Truckers, Mathematicians, Pixel Panda, Shannon and the Clams, Austra, Liz Phair, Television, Animal Collective, Gillian Welch, Roky Erickson, and a whole mash of early American folk, garage, and bluegrass.
I've been trying to narrow down a top five (no order) albums list lately. So far it's:
-Neutral Milk Hotel - In the Aeroplane Over The Sea
-Mathematicians - Level Two
-Joanna Newsom - The Milk-Eyed Mender
-Concrete Blonde - Bloodletting
-Death Vessel - Stay Close
...but that's hardly final.
Comida/Food: does Turkish coffee count? I'm going to count it. Moxie. Anything brined. Gingersnaps. Black licorice. If you want to make and drink Salmiakki Koskenkorva with me, that sounds like a pretty rad night.
Un hogar que parece un nido…con sábanas buenas
Sexo creativo y mucho de esto
Estrellas y viento para me recuerdo que estoy pequeño.
These are cliche, but kind of for a reason:
Composing music and writing, even though I've done very little lately.
A place to nest just a little, somewhere that's my own...with nice sheets.
Deep conversation without an agenda.
Sex. Creative, hot sex and lots of it.
Stars and breezes to remind me of my finiteness.
Donde necesito viajar porque vivo en Europa ahora.
Colloquialisms and weird America. Local history of any sort really. At least that's what I've been thinking about today. If there are oddball Oregon landmarks, I want to know about them. Why OkCupid seems to think that I'm "old fashioned", which couldn't be further from the truth. Also the origin of that cool "S", you know the one.
Where I should travel now that I live in Europe.
I haven’t had a typical night at all in madrid…
Cuando estoy borracho, grito a la luna.
I'd pretty much always rather be naked. You know, if the climate is appropriate.
I'm also on a much less wholesome social networking site.
Sometimes when I get really mashed, I yell at the moon. Not howling or anything, more like telling it to go fuck itself.
Hablar Español (despacio) conmigo
Estar en un balcón hasta que no tenemos mas cerveza
Platicar conmigo de la red
Construir y comer un bocadillo fantastico
You're a Spanish speaker and want to be my conversation buddy while I learn!
Also, I'll be honest, I'm trying to meet folks and I'm not looking for a serious long-term partner so much as someone to hang out with, have some solid adventures, and maybe do some casual canoodling.
You want one or more of the following:
to meet me.
to ride bikes.
to hang out on a porch until we run out of beer.
to talk to me behind the veil of the internet.
To show me around this magical new town.
to play old-people card games.
to fool around.
If you and your lovely partner are drunk at 4am and searching OKCupid for the word "threesome", you might be in luck...
If you want to make and eat a fancy sandwich.
The cheat code to getting me to respond is just being direct.
