I'm laid back, polite and inquisitive. I enjoy trying new things, I'm restless for good conversation. I can have fun in any setting, except for burning orphanages, those are decidedly not funny.
I enjoy good comedy. I'm well read and in good shape. I have weights that I actually use, a gym I occasionally attend, a bicycle I ride when I can and a dog I walk every day.
I'm stealing this description, but I work for an agency and do internet things, largely editing, writing and project managing. I very much enjoy good books and good writing. I have a 13-year-old lab mix, she is the way to my heart.
My tastes in music and film are relatively eclectic. I enjoy sports, which isn't to say I'm obsessive about sports. Fine, I'm somewhat obsessed with the NBA (go Cavs).
I do not play any 'actual' instruments, but let's be honest, air guitar takes just as much skill. Probably more.*
I love live music. I've seen Jay Z, Bob Dylan, My Morning Jacket, Radiohead, Wilco, Beck, Doctor John, Kanye, Justin Timberlake, TV on the Radio, Muse, Trombone Shorty, Deer Hunter, Death Cab for Cutie, Sirs Paul McCartney and Elton John, Bob Dylan, Arcade Fire, Janelle Monàe, Outkast, Wu Tang (for like 30 minutes), Zappa Plays Zappa, Billy Joel and Tame Impala (plus countless local bands) since moving here.
I like dancing, a lot. I attended an amazing disco dance party at a bumper car arena in Coney Island for New Years and I've been lucky enough to be invited to The Loft. I can have fun dancing for hours.
I'm looking for a woman who is intelligent and likes to laugh and likes adventures but is not opposed to doing nothing on occasion.
Also, she should be insanely wealthy and willing to give me exorbitant sums of money on the thinnest of pretenses, i.e. "Um, look, I'm 'researching' flying ... cats? ... yes, that makes a certain kind of sense. Yes, the research requires 'ridiculously expensive bourbon' ... why? ... I don't know. I'm not a flying cat. I had hoped that was obvious."
I prefer a woman who is adventurous, passionate and sympathetic. I like informed, sarcastic women -- that combo is such a plus that I'd call it a prerequisite. Unless you desperately want to fund my research. In that case, be as dumb as you like.
I've worked with said company for nearly a year and have worn several hats -- mostly backward because I think Fred Durst was messianic and should be emulated as such.
'm fairly well versed in current events. I very much love The New Yorker, the NY Times, the Post (there is only one and it is in Washington, DC), the Atlantic, NYT Review of Books, et cetera.
I'm a podcast junkie and if I ran NBC News, I would make Rachel Maddow the face of it tomorrow.
The only film genre I tend to shy from in film is horror. I have no desire to see people tortured for sport sans a compelling narrative. I enjoy comedy, both film and standup, and haven't seen nearly enough of the latter in my time here.
Deadwood is my favorite TV show of all time, but (past and present) I also really enjoy Fargo, Key and Peele, Louis, Broad City, Rick & Morty, Community, Treme, Sopranos, Six Feet Under, Game of Thrones (yes I've read the books), Louie, 30 Rock, Children's Hospital, Archer, Curb Your Enthusiasm, Mr. Show, The Office (truth: the BBC version is better), Arrested Development, Always Sunny and the Simpsons.
Where it concerns food, if the people making it are good at what they do, I don't care what it is. This city is, happily, replete with that.
talking to right now, sorry, passed out there for a minute.
OR ... you are from an immortal race of elves and it's time for me to do something awesome, preferably while controlling lightning, but that's negotiable.
P.S. The last group should not hesitate to leave me a voicemail
