Music is a huge part of my life. It's always been there, and I don't know where I'd be without it. I listen to mainly indie stuff. I could write on forever, so I'll just name a few off the top of my head - Guided by Voices, Explosions in the Sky, Rainer Maria, The Vulgar Boatmen, Jawbreaker, Jets to Brazil, Mary Lou Lord, Mates of State, Blake Babies, Big Star, Teenage Fanclub, Jeff Buckley, The Appleseed Cast, The Ponys, Wesley Willis, Dressy Bessy, Pedro the Lion, the list is endless.
I Love discovering new bands(I mean I have a ton of shit, but there's still so much more out there I haven't heard and would enjoy, you just have to find it) and going to shows. Seeing a show every night sounds like a great way of spending the rest of my life. My favorite spots are the Beachland and the Grog Shop. I'm into seeing shows at smaller places like these and not huge venues.
I wouldn't say I like to argue, but have "spirited debates" with anyone over such things as religion, music, tv/film, etc... to such trivial or silly things as which fast food place has the best fries or which girl was the biggest idiot on "Rock of Love" for actually thinking Brett Michaels is cool & wanting to be with him.
Dress wise you'll normally find me wearing vintage shirts, jeans, and my pair of solid blue Vans, and I try to hit the thrift stores once a week.
Relationship wise some people say "opposites attract", that's really not my bag. Yeah, some girl with a mullet showing up for a date wearing a John Deer hat, Nickelback shirt & camo shorts, whose favorite saying is "Git Er Done" may sound extremely enticing, but I'm gonna have to pass. I'm looking for someone very much like myself. Don't get me wrong, I'm not wanting a doppelganger of myself with just a cute little "bob cut" or something, I don't think I'd make a very attractive woman. You know, someone who has similar views, interests, thoughts, feelings and just knows how to have fun. The kind of person who you can have a kick ass time with at a show, or just have the same amount of fun going to the grocery store with, someone who connects.

Movies: Her, Where the Wild Things Are, Lars and the Real Girl, The Perks of Being a Wallflower, Chasing Amy, High Fidelity, This is Spinal Tap, Anything John Hughes, Serenity, Waiting, The Jerk, Team America: World Police, Friday Night Lights, Moneyball and Hoosiers to name a few.
Shows: Angel, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Firefly(Hey, don't judge! You've gotta watch them all from the beginning, than you can tell me they suck. You'd be wrong, but at least you could say it.), South Park, Arrested Development, Battlestar Galactica(2004), Caprica, Freaks and Geeks, Friday Night Lights, Veronica Mars, The Adventures of Pete & Pete, The League, Warren the Ape, Starved, Austin Stories and a bunch of others that were cut off way too soon and never got a chance.
Music: As I said before, I listen to mainly indie stuff and named a few(of many) in my self summary because music is so important to me it deserved to be in that category. I'm sure if you're into that kind of scene we'd have a lot in common & probably a lot to introduce as well, but if I had a gun to my head I'd have to say Guided by Voices is my favorite. If you want to see me and know what I mean: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SX-t8_EA1_A GBV....GBV....GBV!!!
Food: I'd say a little bit of everything, more picky about how it's made or prepared, I enjoy how I cook stuff. I don't think I could ever get sick of Chipotle or Qdoba. One thing I'll never eat are any types of soups. No traumatic childhood soup incident, I just find them gross. Not a desert guy either, no cakes, pies, or jelly filled doughnuts for me. I do like just glazed doughnuts though and unfortunately Krispy Kreme has ruined me for wanting any other for the rest of my life, they're so damn good!!!

- Grass (or I'd be out of business, duh)

I'm 5'11 3/4'' and 175 lbs of "Twisted Steel and Sex Appeal" (see photos). Now, with the obvious out of the way, I'm also open and honest and, ummm, hopefully you can tell at times very sarcastic. I dance to my own beat and I'm very passionate about the things I like and are into without worrying what others think about them. I'm very open minded and respect other people's ideas and beliefs and expect the same in return because I really don't have time for one-sided, narrow-minded people.
I do landscaping/lawn maintenance for a living. I work hard and a lot and really enjoy being outside and active. Hey, anything good enough for "Ronald Miller" is cool with me.
What am I looking for? To put it simply, a connection. You're funny, real, smart. You're an individual who isn't afraid to be themselves. You have a great mind, with something to say. You can both dish it out and take it. Someone who always wants to take care of themselves both mentally and physically. Someone passionate about the things they hold dear. Someone who doesn't settle for things. Someone who loves to laugh and realizes that there's humor in everything. Someone who respects my ideas and beliefs, but doesn't have to agree with all of them(the vast majority is good enough). Someone who can get lost and find themselves in a song. Someone fun. Someone who realizes that "So, I Married an Axe Murderer" is Mike Myers' Masterpiece. Someone who doesn't need a laugh track to life and understands and appreciates sarcasm, i.e. parts of this profile. Someone who doesn't try to impress me, but does so none the less. Someone who believes that relationships aren't something you "always" have to work at, some just work. Someone to age with, but never grow old. A best friend. Someone that everytime I see them the first thing that comes to mind is, "Man, you're the Coolest Chick in the World." Wow, that's it, I could have saved a lot of time and trouble and made it very simple: I'm looking for "The Coolest Chick in the World."
