My self-summary
Today I realized that all matter is merely energy condensed to a slow vibration, that we are all one consciousness experiencing itself subjectively, there's no such thing as death, life is only a dream and we are the imagination of ourselves.

I'm smart, funny and quick witted. I'm emotionally available, have a powerful sense of right and wrong and am fiercely protective of those I love. I will do the right thing even if it's difficult. Cartoons are a passion and Bugs Bunny is my hero. I'm capable of conversations on any topic and prefer depth over simplicity. I have four cats who run the show and leave the bills to me. I love biking, hiking and camping and these mountains we live among. I like hearing peoples' stories about where they come from and what has shaped them into who they are. I've lived here over 20 years and can't imagine living anywhere else. I feel certain that marriage and children are not for me. As many of my friends have chosen that route, their time has become consumed by it. My pool of friends remains the same size but the opportunities to spend time with them has diminished. I'm hoping to use the online community here as a resource for making new relationships whether they are friendly, sexual or romantic.
Those are way too many "I" statements.

Someone once described me as St. Francis because of my way with animals. More than once I've had bees land on my finger upon command and I used to pet a walrus like others pet dogs and cats.

I like to read profiles so if you've seen that I've viewed yours, know that I've taken the time to read what you said. From my experience I've discovered that whether you've typed five sentences or five paragraphs, you can only give the most limited summary of who you are. Life is lived within the details for they are what truly define us. The broad strokes give an impression while the fine lines bring us into focus. Therein lies the excitement of discovery.

I'm not really attracted to skinny women. I prefer tall women with curves. Fat girls rock. Furthermore, I'm tired of fat being a dirty word and fat women still being one of the groups people choose to make fun of.
What I’m doing with my life
Swimming upstream.
I’m really good at
Listening to my instincts - they're never wrong
Understanding people's motivations
Over thinking things
Dancing my own way
Ping pong
Playing the electric bass
Being a dork
Being fucking real
The first things people usually notice about me
My deep voice and my tattoos. The fact that I'm rather unconventional and my clothing never advertises. Unless it's a band, you will never see a logo on me.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I love music. In fact I'll probably never love anyone as much as I love music. I listen to almost anything except straight jazz, blues or country. Cross any of those with a little rock and roll and then it's a different story. Neutral Milk Hotel, Tortoise, The Beta Band, Pixies, Akron/Family, Adrian Belew, Frank Zappa, Soul Coughing, Jimi Hendrix, Yes, Rush, King Crimson, Fishbone, The Jesus Lizard, Minutemen, Queens of the Stone Age, Butthole Surfers and on and on. Funk out with your junk out.

Books: Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas, Jonathon Livingston Seagull, Illusions, Tom Robbins, The Dark Tower series. I recently read The Hunger Games trilogy. I'm not sure what all the fuss was about. I'm in the midst of the Songs of Ice and Fire series so please just kill me now.

Movies: Little Murders and Harold and Maude are my two favorites. Dr. Strangelove, Being There, Slingblade, Delicatessen, The City of Lost Children, The Shining, Dead Man (because I like Jim Jarmusch, not Jonny Depp), Requiem for a Dream, A Clockwork Orange.

Cartoons: Bugs Bunny because he's the king, Frisky Dingo, Home Movies (season 1 only), The Venture Brothers, Squidbillies, Metalocalypse, The Simpsons (early years), Sealab 2012, Archer, The Boondocks. The latest fave, Rick and Morty is pretty damn good.
Six things I could never do without
There is nothing I could never do without but if I had a choice I'd rather not do without:

My cats
Psilocybin (it's the only real medicine there is)
Loving people that I can relate to
Passionate, intense, meaningful sex
I spend a lot of time thinking about
If the human race is a sustainable commodity. I'm fascinated by how amazing we are yet seem hell bent on our destruction.
Are we really just vessels for the proliferation of bacteria? Bill Hicks said we're a virus with shoes. Most of the time I find it hard to disagree.
On a typical Friday night I am
Somewhere the masses are not unless a good band is playing. I prefer hanging out with small groups of people versus large gatherings.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
A friend who has known me for over 20 years gave me the greatest compliment of my life. He said "You know I have lots of friends and they would pretty much do anything for me but if I was in real trouble you would be the one I asked for help. Like if my son was sick and the only way I could pay for an operation was to rob a bank, all my other friends would only wish they could help but if I asked you I know you would say 'How do we get it done?'."
You should message me if
If small talk makes you sick or if you need some new music.
If you can show me something I've never seen.
If you can teach me new things.
You must like cats.
I lost my bike riding buddy a while back and have trouble finding the motivation to ride by myself. If you like to ride and would care to help me get back in shape, definitely say hello.
The two of us
