My self-summary
I am an old rugby hooligan with a wide streak of sarcasm, and a tendency to be cynically optimistic(an Apocoloptimist I guess) bout most things in life and the world. I'm by no means perfect, which is evident in some of my decision-making choices in the past. But I've lived, learned (although not as quickly as I should have on some subjects), and have a few tattoos as reminders.
What I’m doing with my life
Still trying to figure that out.
I’m really good at
Sarcasm, making chainmaille(the armor and jewelry, not the letters).cursing, working on bikes. I like to consider myself a jack-of-all-trades. I also make a mean baclava.
The first things people usually notice about me
Usually my hat, or my lack of hair. Here recently it's been how much weight I've lost! I guess the Coffee and Cigarettes diet works!
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I have a very eclectic taste when it comes to the written word. I am a voracious reader. I will read anything from beat poetry to how-to manuals. Some of my favorite writers are Kerouac, Ginsberg, Fitzgerald, Terry Pratchett, Lao Tzu, Dr. Hunter S. Thompson, George Carlin, Lewis Black, Corso, Dante, Blake, Hemingway, the list goes on.

I also have a wide range of movies that I like, from old horror to documentaries, to slapstick comedy to drama. Some of my favorites are Where the Buffalo Roam, Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas, Hugo, The Woman in Black(that was one of the first movies in a long time that I actually covered my face in the theater), Whip It. The Outsiders, Monty Python and the Holy Grail, Clerks, Clerks 2, Chasing Amy. I also love and will watch and Carlin HBO comedy special, no matter how many times I've seen it before.

I am a huge fan of SOA, the Walking Dead, and Big Bang Theory. I like Adult Swim, and most of their lineup. The Office(both US and UK), most any old cartoons, and some new ones too. I've started getting into TrueBlood.

I won't list all the bands I like, but I like everything from Tom Waits to punk rock, with some metal, old country, rockabilly and blues thrown in.

As for food, I don't have a specific style of cooking I like, but I will try most any food as long as it doesn't look back at me while I eat it. I do love steak.
Six things I could never do without
My sons
A good bicycle
My rugby kit
My brown felt stingy brim
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Things I probably shouldn't.
The zombie apocolypse.
What the hell is wrong with the world.
On a typical Friday night I am
Not doing much, spending time with my boys mostly. Unless there's something cool happening!
You should message me if
You would like to get coffee sometime.

You like to read and you like punk rock!
The two of us
