So I’m definitely neither hip nor with it. And that’s ok—it’s what makes me me. That said, it’s not like I couldn’t stand to have my horizons expanded a bit, and it would be great to meet somebody who would. In return, I’ll do my best to expand yours, or at the very least pepper my commentary with arcane references.
Movies: There's a range. “Double Indemnity,” “Sunset Boulevard,” “The Sting,” “To Live and Die in L.A.," the “Rocky” franchise (number three is the best; let’s pretend the fifth never happened) and so on.
TV Shows: I oscillate between things like “The Rockford Files” and “Magnum P.I.” to “Silicon Valley” and “Narcos.”
Music: There's a bit of everything in there, but I listen primarily to classic hip hop, 80s and 90s alternative, and Yacht Rock. 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 has a lot to live up to—the last one took 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.
