Whatever the case, it would be really great to meet somebody who can compliment that, and maybe even expand my horizons a bit. Who knows? We might end up being quite different from one another. But in return, I’ll do my best to expand yours, or at the very least pepper my commentary with references to old movies.
Drop me a line if you’d like to know more.*
*I considered using a “To Have and Have Not”/“Dead Men Don’t Wear Plaid” reference as a closing line, but that might’ve been a little too inside baseball.
Movies: If it’s a big, fun story, I’m for it. “Double Indemnity,” “Sunset Boulevard,” “The Sting,” “To Live and Die in L.A.,” the classic “Star Trek” movies, the “Rocky” franchise (number three is the best; let’s pretend the fifth never happened) and on and on.
Shows: Again, anything with a good story, from “The Rockford Files” and “Magnum P.I.” up to my current favorites, “Silicon Valley” and “Ray Donovan.” However, I’m not fan of “Game of Thrones” or anything else in the realm of fantasy, really.
Music: Gosh, there’s a lot. I skew rock, with lots of James Taylor and Steely Dan in the mix, but I listen primarily to classic hip hop, 80s and 90s alternative, and Yacht Rock, while dabbling in what some call synth wave or new retro wave. I once even produced a music documentary, if you can believe it. That said, I love "Double Time" by Leon Redbone—it's one of the jewels in my vinyl crown.
Food: I like a good sandwich.
My Jeep. It’s taken me to all five boroughs, 17 states, and both coasts.
Sailboats. I admire their inherent grace and steadfastness; too bad I can’t say the same for myself in the face of seasickness.
Dogs. They’re reminders to commit fully to whatever you do, even if it’s taking a nap.
Work. Much of how I define myself is dictated by my career; I admit that’s not always a good thing.
Physical challenges. There’s a competitive streak in me that needs to be satisfied, however my lower back doesn't always share that enthusiasm.
