There's a decent chance you've heard my voice on the TV box.
A couple things I've noticed about YOU: You've all been to Coachella, youve dressed up as David Bowie for at least one Halloween, you think the fake moustache pictures are really cute even though I'm apparently so old I have NO CLUE what that whole thing's about, and I'm pretty sure not nearly as many of you are bi sexual as you claim to be. Also, an awful lot of you have "Taco" in your username. You're either aware of the double entondre or you're not. I'm not sure which is worse.
No seriously, someone explain the moustache thing to me.
Also, I was just reprimanded by OKCupid for having a picture of my motorcycle up here when at least half of you have pictures of your dogs. My motorcycle is WAY faster than your dog. I always assumed that land speed was how these things were decided.
I used to have something in this section about alcohol tolerance but a few people decided to challenge me on that one and it ended up in some really weird first dates.
Things I'm not good at: Drawing anything, watching awards shows, putting the laundry away in an even slightly reasonable amount of time.
Books: Any and all Vonnegut (repeatedly), McCarthy, Twain, Hemingway, Palahniuk, Hunter Thompson...I like stories and avoid the deluge of self-important "memoir" novels that have been the standard of the last decade. And I try to work in a decent amount of non-fiction - been reading a lot of really dense stuff about the technological singularity lately so don't be surprised if I bore you with that over drinks sometime...
Movies: Terrence Malick, Terry Gilliam, Errol Morris, Herzog, Scorsese, Hitchcock, blah blah blah...this one seems silly because I was raised on Indiana Jones and Star Wars but I went to film school so I'm just as happy when a new X-Men movie comes out as I am discussing Truffaut.
Music: Rolling Stones, Sam Cooke, Otis Redding, Jesus & Mary Chain, Primal Scream, BRMC, The Raveonettes, Brian Jonestown, Black Keys, The Band, Dr. Dog, The Cult, T Rex, Iggy, Morrissey, The Clash. I could keep going but I'm pretty sure you get the point.
TV: For the last month or so I have been watching episodes of Oz on my iPad in bed before going to sleep every night. I'm not sure why I'm doing that to myself but it makes for some REALLY weird dreams. I wish Justified was my dad. Not Timothy Olyphant in Justified, but the actual show.
And I'm adding another category that not nearly enough people bother with - Comedians: Louis CK, Lenny Bruce, George Carlin, Nick Kroll, Paul F Thompkins, Patton Oswalt, Zach Galifianakis, Eugene Mirman, David Cross...so many more.
Despite my best efforts I really don't care all that much about food. That is not to say I don't enjoy very good food, because I very much do. But a long time ago someone I respected said to me "Food should either be the greatest thing you've ever tasted, or it should make you not hungry anymore." So I cook a lot but pretty simply.
That really was exactly as painful as I thought it would be.
I had green tea and Jameson listed 1 and 2 on here for a while, but a doctor told me I should stop drinking so much of both of them. For completely opposite reasons.
But seriously, why the snakes?
