Functional without being boring, crazy but not destructive. I take pride in being kind and speaking gently. I love high brow art and gourmet food as much as mosh pits and dive bars.
Life has been an interesting ride so far. I've had an unusual life and like to think it's given me some perspective. I am a fun loving, adventure seeking, free speaking guy who can keep you engaged in conversation for days (unless you want to talk about sports or TV shows, in this I will fail).
I enjoy a loving, caring, ethically open marriage with primatology. If that's not how you roll, that's ok. We can be friends. I'm very happy with my romantic life and currently prioritize finding activity partners rather than dating, but if the chemistry is right, I'm happy to try for more.
TL/DR: GGG. Mostly harmless.
I am unusually passionate about insects.
I am hyper aware of my frailty and mortality which has resulted in an unbridled lust for life.
I have a fulfilling full-time job as a science teacher and several hobbies.
Movies: The Colors Trilogy, Kung Fu Hustle, the movies of Akira Kurosawa, Jim Jarmusch, Jon Cassavetes, Ray Harrihausen. I'm a sucker for cheesy fantasy films.
Music: Mostly metal, also jazz, classical, folk, soul, blues and a pinch of hip hop. There are several South American singer songwriters who can make me cry. I love Fado, Tango and The Blues. I never get tired of Andrés Calamaro, Tom Waits and Leonard Cohen. Keith Jarrett for life!
Shows: Samurai Champloo, Game of Thrones, Daredevil, Westworld, anything by Chuck Jones.
Food: An adventurous eater, I am always eager to learn how to make or enjoy great food. I am a decent baker and good cook. I love spices and well crafted beer.
Webcomics: XKCD, The Order of the Stick, Oglaf, Questionable Content.
Podcasts: Radiolab, This American Life, Savage Podcast, The Moth.
Late night conversations
How much I've changed over the years.
The short stories of J. L. Borges.
Systems of oppression. Invisible cages.
Also, I enjoy the music of Manowar, not even in a hip, ironic sense. I honest to the gods like it.
