My self-summary
I have come here to chew bubblegum, and kick ass. And I'm all...out...of bubblegum.

I prefer a dive bar to a trendy club.

I prefer an intimate gathering to a large crowd.

I sing my own versions of popular canned music that's played at my workplace to my fellow co-workers.

I'm not an angel, but I try to be compassionate and bring a smile to an unsuspecting face daily. If I can brighten anyone's day, just a titch, I feel enriched by that.

I am a comic book nerd, and I had a garbage can lid shield JUST LIKE the kids at the end of Captain America.

Words to live by: "Men are like steel. When they lose their temper, they lose their worth."

I am soulful, smartasscastic, and groovy.

I have this lofty ideal of myself as a renaissance guy, albeit in tshirt and jeans.

That's about it.
What I’m doing with my life
Writing music & recording for my own pleasure, whilst honing the elusive art of songwriting. Taking vocal lessons. Working on being a better hockey player. Trying to not make my profile sound so serious. Attempting to write poetry. Buying "art" that I have no room for on my walls. Buying books I may not have time to read. Buying movies...well you get the idea. Working a full time retail management job and a part time job I truly love, dealing with the greatest sport in the!!
I’m really good at
Making people laugh.
Playing guitar.
Random gestures of Chivalry.
Not taking advantage of my fellow humans.
Paying attention to the little things.
Making new animal friends.
Loving unconditionally.
The first things people usually notice about me
My sense of the absurd. Maybe my forearm tattoo.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books-Way, way too many to list...I adore most anything Arthurian; in fact, give me a swashbuckling tale and I'll be amused for hours. I can read English Romantic poetry all day, and I'll read some to you if you behave. Don't take me to Half Price Books unless you have the hours to burn; for that matter, I love nothing more than browsing an old, musty dusty bookstore.

Movies- Lately I really look for the foreign/independent films. There's so many little gems out there. I tend to get in a rut watching horror/sci-fi and fantasy. I love subtitled films, because foreign films usually aren't formulaic and dumb (I admit though, I do love a big dumb action movie once in awhile).
I'm pretty taken with South Korean filmmakers at the moment.

Shows: Game of Thrones, Sherlock, Hannibal, Penny Dreadful, Lancelot Link-Secret Chimp, Castle, Firefly, Sledge Hammer, Whose Line Is It Anyway

Music- any Rock or Metal, classic or otherwise, though I tolerate, as well as listen to, many other genres.

Food- Greek food rules. But that's just me, my grandparents came through Ellis Island from Greece.

Favorite inanimate object: I thought I was over my materialistic stage, but it appears I am fond, overtly, of my new Reebok hockey stick; and my Reaper DAW for home recording.
Six things I could never do without
My guitar. Family. Music. Books. Laughter. Art. In no particular order...
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Goats. I'm fascinated with goats. I long to have one as a pet, because I'm sure it would become my friend and confidant. Goats are such good listeners.

Girls. I'm fascinated with girls. I long to have one as a pet, because I'm sure it would become my friend and confidant. It puts the lotion in the basket...sorry about that. Just wanted to make sure you were still paying attention.

What I would accomplish if I had magical abilities. Not accomplishments for the good of mankind necessarily, but things I'd do to set things right. And faulk things up (insert evil laughter here).

Letting the Medieval punishment fit the modern crime.

The word "manchild". It kind of bugs me. Call me that if you will, but I refuse to be "labeled" and put in a box, especially if said box is being shipped to the Island of Misfit Boys. I have way more in common with people younger than myself. I'll always be a kid at heart, but I'm waaaay more responsible than anyone I know. Nana nana boo boo!
On a typical Friday night I am
Usually hanging out with friends- enjoying a brew, a movie, a band or just plain good times. On occasion I stay in and write or practice musical stuff, and truthfully I enjoy being a hermit oftimes. Nothing like settling down with a good book...
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Ummm...does the goat thing count? Just kidding. I don't mind the usual "girly" things that might bother the average guy. I don't mind going clothes shopping with you or such, in fact I enjoy things like that. I will paint your toes for you, as long as you don't have hideously ugly peds, like with raptor claws or something. I grew up in an all-female household, and my respect, admiration and understanding of the fairer sex is something I'm proud of. (self edit) Hah! Like I could actually begin to understand women!
You should message me if are hopelessly romantic are slightly geeky enjoy intelligent conversation like a good massage enjoy providing commentary to awful movies, ala Mystery Science Theater 3000 might be interested in the ChuckTacular VanDammeathon Seagalabration martial arts movie marathon/drinking game think cuddling is swell agree/support that making out should be timed, minimally, in "sessions" have a red stapler on your desk, or are missing one secretly hide the fact that, in fact, you know many "Chuck Norris facts" sometimes think your cat/dog is your best friend want to be treated like a lady spent the last several years developing an immunity to iocaine powder enjoy bike rides, long walks or ice skating like to laugh and be silly might talk dirty to me in a ridiculous Russian accent, or perhaps agree to a date using the code names "Boris" and "Natasha", whilst conversing only in said accent enjoy reading and being read to like to act up/out wear glasses and/or have freckles because those two things are just. way. hot. can eat breakfast for any meal of the day, and you might make me french toast if I come over
...your mother was a hamster and/or your father smelt of elderberries have an intense love of the arts would never resort to "kung fu treachery"

...if any of the above put a smile on your face

I mean, you should get a prize or something for longevity if you read this far. Hopefully, you comprehend the "I'm Looking For" section above... I really am looking for friends and penpals. I love to write actual letters and such, and I'm not out to take advantage of you. Omigod, I just put myself in the "friend zone" again. Jeez.

Honestly, though. All good things spring from friendship...investing time getting to know someone is never wasted time, because you can learn something from everyone, and knowing someone truly enriches that whole "Love" thing...
The two of us
