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.
Random gestures of Chivalry.
Not taking advantage of my fellow humans.
Paying attention to the little things.
Making new animal friends.
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.
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!

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...
