A hardened, stubborn, unrepenting villain,
Still my heart melts at human wretchedness;
And with sincere but unavailing sighs
I view the helpless children of distress:
With tears indignant I behold the oppressor
Rejoicing in the honest man's destruction,
Whose unsubmitting heart was all his crime.--
Ev'n you, ye hapless crew! I pity you;
Ye, whom the seeming good think sin to pity;
Ye poor, despised, abandoned vagabonds,
Whom Vice, as usual, has turn'd o'er to ruin.
Oh! but for friends and interposing Heaven,
I had been driven forth like you forlorn,
The most detested, worthless wretch among you!
O injured God! Thy goodness has endow'd me
With talents passing most of my compeers,
Which I in just proportion have abused--
As far surpassing other common villains
As Thou in natural parts has given me more.
~~ Robert Burns
Religion... hmmm... Kashmiri Shaivic with Zen tendencies and a healthy dose of Solipism. They don't seem to have that in the profile selections.
I am literary, dominant, and affectionate
I am the head of a polyamorous, leather family, based on Integrity, Loyalty, Honor and Respect.
I love Ren Faires in general, and Scarborough Faire in particular. If you ever make it out, stop by and say hi to me at Ravensburg Chainmaiile!

Music: Can't find anything to settle on recently. Any suggestions?
You can't spell crap without rap. Other than that, everything from Pink to Hinder to Daughtry to Meatloaf to Bach to Celine Dion to Andrea Bocelli to Neil Diamond to ManOWar to October Country to Black Sabbath to Brother to Evanescence to Nickleback to John Denver to Mozart to The Killers to Julia Ecklar to Linkin Park to Blue Man Group to etc....
Movies: The Thomas Crown Affair, The Princes Bride; Plus anything Monty Python or Sci-Fi/Fantasy, some chick flicks, some Horror, some Comedy, nothing stupid.
Television: What's that? Oh...the idiot box. OK, OK, I miss Firefly and Babylon 5, and I can usually be enticed to watch anything sci-fi, anime, or on Discovery Channel, as long as we can cuddle while watching.

In the much more narrow sense, of what I would hate to do without: Good books (see above), good alcohol, interesting food, Internet access, and indoor plumbing. Also, I loathe sleeping alone.
My future harem of beautiful women who all believe in my Solipsism. Hey... I don't really want a pony.
I sometimes travel without my towel.
Han shot first, dammit!
I don't do exclusive, or secret, relationships. I'm polyamorous, but not fanatic about it. [I'm not really looking for someone new to sleep with] I really enjoy dating. I like taking a fun lady to a nice dinner or night on the town. Or even better, an evening on the couch cuddled up and watching movies. I have fantasies about introducing you to my favorite movies, and re-discovering them through your eyes, watching your favorites that I somehow missed, and re-watching movies that we both love over, but for the first time together. Good conversation and a relaxed enjoyable time are what I enjoy.
If you are in the North Dallas, North Garland, Richardson area, and want to be taken out for a nice date, or are just feeling lonely, drop me a line.
If you live further than that, say hi. I regularly travel around the Denton to Fort Worth to Burleson to Arlington to Corsicana to Athens to Greenville to McKinney to Lewisville to Denton area. But I've also been known to drive to Houston, Santa Fe, and Shreveport to spend time with someone interesting. Longer trips just take slightly more planning. ;-)
