I like my coffee black
My whiskey neat
My beer crafty, and
My men clever
I have a knack for parallel parking in absurdly tight spots.
Out-decibeling a brass section. If you're impressed by that you may be too nerdy to date me.
Books: I'm a bibliophile. Truly.
TV: Not so much, though there are exceptions.
Music: I'm a classical musician by profession, and have been immersed in music since the womb. I could talk shop all day with like-minded friends, but I'd rather just perform. Basically, I love the really good stuff- musically speaking, and generally speaking.
Food: Is it spicy? Can I make it spicy? How spicy can I make it? Often, the poorer the country, the richer the food- think about it.
Movies: Honestly, I feel like Hollywood is just a whole lot of white people circle-jerking each other. That said, I love documentaries cause I'm a huge nerd.
•The Music I love
•Great Food and Drink
•NPR (White, well-educated social democrat over here. Big surprise!)
•Airplanes and current passport
•My sense of humor
(I think that was technically 8 things. Oh well.)
•How to be a better musician, teacher, leader, friend, family member, and human being.
•Puns in general. I was going to try to come up with a clever one here- butt, fuck it.
1) I completely severed my foot from my body, had it surgically reattached, and now have full function of that foot. Modern medical science is a miracle, I tell ya.
2) I had the great pleasure of meeting President Obama not once-but twice.
3) I debuted at Carnegie Hall at age 16.
•You're a renaissance man. I have a weakness for those.
•You think you can make me ugly laugh-the kind with involuntary wheezing.
•You're a liberal. Social Democrat of the Bernie Sanders variety strongly preferred. Libertarians need not apply. You must be a voting, conscientious, decently political liberal. Otherwise it just ain't gunna work out-trust me.
•You enjoy a day at the museum, and a night at the symphony or opera.
•You understand that dogs are superior to cats, baseball is superior to football, and Andrea Bocelli and "the phantom of the opera" have about as much to do with opera as "Christian Science" has to do with Einstein and Hawking.
