I moved to Austin in September of 2011 and I still don't know that many people. I have had less than a handful of dates in that time, and I am looking to jump into the deep end and sink or swim. Read ahead if you are intrigued.
I am an OK guitar player at best, but I like playing them. I like building them and fixing them even more. If you have a guitar that needs a repair - talk to me and we'll see what we can do.
I am also a very good problem solver, but of course the blessing and curse of that ability is I am much better at fixing other people's problems than my own. I am good at seeing both objective and subjective sides and weighing the difference.
MOVIES: Raiders of the Lost Ark, Dark City, The Matrix (#1, not #2 or 3), Gross Point Blank (can't believe I forgot this one the first time around), The Matador, The Outlaw Josey Wales, The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly, The Fifth Element, John Carpenters: The Thing, Sunshine, Romeo + Juliet, Casino Royale, Iron Man, Star Wars (4-6), Bill and Ted (Both), The Edge, Taxi Driver, The Big Sleep, SLC Punk... etc.
TV: It fluctuates. I haven't had broadcast TV in 7 years, so its usually catching up on what I choose to watch. All time favorites would have to be: The Mighty Boosh, Junkyard Wars, Firefly, Fringe, Sports Night, Stargate Universe, Spaced, The Adventures of Pete and Pete... I am currently watching: The 4400, Breaking Bad, Archer, Bob's Burgers.
MUSIC: I have a wide array of tastes, but I usually stay in the Classic Rock, Blues, and Heavy Metal camps: Mastodon, ZZ Top! Faith No More, Tomahawk, Kyuss, Queens of the Stone Age, No Doubt, Rush, Dick Dale, The Darkness, The Ventures, Green Day (classic version), Chuck Berry, Judas Priest, Bo Diddley, Jimi Hendrix, Black Label Society, Joe Walsh (James Gang, Eagles), Black Sabbath, Nirvana.. the list goes on.. and I am sure some of it would surprise you.
FOOD: I am not a foodie I can tell you that. I usually eat what I am familiar with, but I have tried a great many new things since moving to Austin. It's a wonderful place to experiment and I look forward to trying more.
(3) Movies and Music. Its a career because its a passion. It would suck to do without.
(4) Fresh Air. I do work inside a lot, and do not go out as much as I should, but when I do I immediately feel better.
(5) Something personal to craft. My career involves making other people's dreams and visions come to life, and I have learned that if I do not have something to work on just for me.. I start to lose it.
(6) If we are being honest - sex of course
Myself - I self reflect a lot.
Others - why people do certain things, what compels them and why.
Women - All of it, most I will never understand as much as I would like to.
Work - What I have to do, where I will get my next job.
Guitars - Building mostly, and various design aesthetics.
EVERYTHING ELSE - my mind drifts a lot, and since I say what I am thinking, you'll hear it... but not in an ADD I am not paying attention sort of way. I pay too much attention.
- Heels (even, and especially with already tall women)
- women who can cook
- bows in their hair
Don't know why, these things just catch my eye.
I am honestly open to talk about anything and everything - bring it on!
I have always been a very open person, but now that I am in a new city and still don't know many people, I am trying to be more honest in general. I am putting all the cards on the table and looking to see what happens. I am very outgoing and a conversationalist.. if you have something you want to ask or something you want to talk about - Don't be shy! I would love to hear if anybody has got something good to say.
