Super mellow. Old soul. No games, no nonsense. Not your average. Polite and thoughtful, in spite of the sass. I feed stray cats, send news clippings to friends; granny style, open doors for strangers, say "excuse me", and write letters. I hate square plates and phones at the dinner table. My under things usually match, but there's a good chance there are holes in my socks. That kind of sums me up.
Or, this. https://youtu.be/wNmEdxgUs0E
All jokes aside, definitely ready for something real/significant, so be mindful of that one. I'm by no means looking to move quickly, but just want to be clear with my long term heart/mind intentions. Please follow suit.
Life is good, and full, and rich...but I'm looking to meet people outside of my regular day to day. Only recently getting back to seeking that lovely work/life balance situation I've heard so much about. Join me?
Oh, you've got blue eyes
Oh, you've got grey eyes
And I've never seen anyone quite like you before
No, I've never met anyone quite like you before"
I don't know...glasses? Smile? Sense of humor? Ever so slightly over dressed (I can't help it). General aura of awesome? I don't know, you tell me.
Books... A Tree Grows in Brooklyn by Betty Smith, and God-Shaped Hole, by Tiffanie DeBartolo, The Golden Compass (no, but seriously), Gatsby, and anything by Jonathan Kozol. Have been re-reading some classics lately which feels really good. Currently enjoying "How The Other Half Lives" by Jacob Riis. It's a study of tenement life in NYC during the late 1800's. Dry, but fascinating.
Movies...Tough to narrow it down. Bronx Tale, Help!, In Brugges, Cool Hand Luke, Fierce People, Sleepers, Modern Times, Wizard of Oz, Wet Hot American Summer, La Strada (or really anything with Giulietta Masina), Hard Day's Night, Across The Universe, The Ten. Any large ensemble comedy which results in a sweet ending where they all end up at the same party/concert/shopping mall, etc (Love, Actually being a prime and superior example), and anything by the Coen brothers, John Waters, Wes Anderson, David Cronenberg, or Christopher Guest. More Michael Shannon, please!
TV is getting better though, eh? That being said, I've very excited that My Two Dad's is now available on DVD.
Food...? Why? Yummy. I like that kind the best. I also quite like liverwurst, black licorice, burnt cheese and buttered popcorn Jelly Belly jelly beans (though not at the same time). Yup. Take it. Oh, and cheese is love.
I'd also be happy (and gigantic) to eat what I ate while in New Orleans, with lots of Crystal hot sauce, for the rest of my life.
I Love, love, love music. I'm pretty much listening to music from the moment I wake up until I go to sleep (can't sleep with music on though). My favorite Pandora stations is...probably a toss up between 90's NY Rap music and Incense and Peppermints. I've had a healthy, and I'd like to think charming, lifelong love affair with The Beatles. There's also quite a lot of other stuff that gets me excited. Everything from The Prodigy to Robert Johnson. Jeff Buckley's music sets my heart on fire. I also listen to ABBA and make no apologies. I used to work at a live music venue, so all I had to do was show up to work to hear great, new music. I don't have cable, or a radio...so I have to go by word of mouth for the new jams. This explains why I still listen to PM Dawn fairly regularly. Don't judge me, and I won't judge you. Got it?
If I had to choose...but honestly, that's a ridiculous question, really.
Why do people not bat an eye when folks talk about hating cats, but when someone says they don't like dogs, they're seen as a soulless monster ? (For the record, I love both...double standards, not so much)
Deleting this profile...but then I wouldn't have ROMANTAUR to marvel at.
I love Madea movies. And Wendy Williams. Yup.
I love the smell of subway bread baking, but I don't ever want to eat there because that shit is gross.
If you sometimes feel like a weird old man, I like you already.
If D'Angelo's music is or ever has been on your "get down to sexy business" mix. Call. Me. Now.
Or if you're Australian/have a cool dog.
Also open to platonic friends, because seriously that's hard to come by these days.
