My self-summary
I like discourse. I am obsessed with the redwoods. I LOVE the ocean. I like hugs and kisses. I like astronomy. I love technology. I hate technology. I like shavasana. I like historical fiction. Once I get back from a long trip, I am happy to be home in LA, but within a month or two I am itching to get out again and do so.

INTP

Non-monogamous (in an open marriage)

Looking for nature road trip partners. If you hate being photographed, do not apply.
What I’m doing with my life
Buying camping gear. Making timelapse blacklight bodypainting videos. Drawing and painting. Traveling too much for fun. Photographing people underwater. Hitting the yoga studio more than usual so i can legitimately change my body type to "Fit" for you OKC people (yes I realize this misses the point of yoga, haha).
I’m really good at
Asphyxiation.

Drawing bunnies.

Trivia.

Cuddling (especially with poisonous sea snakes!)

Backhanded compliments

Squats (bro!)

Laying on the bottom of pools
The first things people usually notice about me
That i am soft spoken as fuck. When I first went to Japan my future in-laws assumed i was gay because i did not speak like a drunken cowboy. Somehow my voice is stuck in bedroom mode, 24-7. let's go some place quiet, please?
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
- Wild Trees, The Golden Shore: California's Love Affair With the Sea, Sex At Dawn, The Omnivore's Dilemma, Sy Montgomery books, An Angel at My Table, Malcolm Gladwell (particularly the Outliers), Atlas of Remote Islands by Judith Schalansky, The Color Purple, Daniel Clowes, The Hunger Games Trilogy (guilty pleasure - are these books for kids? I don't know but i have a soft spot for TOUGH female heroines), Erik Larson's books, historical fiction about the lives and machinations surrounding the building of European cathedrals (now how is that for a specific genre!? Seriously though - i can give you my top three if you like)

- Under the Skin (I am not sure I would want to hang with someone that hated that movie - it's the most honest, beautifully anti-human movie, it explains nothing to you. It is film as art). Iñárritu, Alexander Payne's films, basically anything with Sam Rockwell in it, Coen Brothers, stupid comedies, smart comedies, sc-fi, war movies (i can never think of favorite movies when people ask). Also, weirdly, i am a sucker for movies with Channing Tatum (whose name my wife and I can never remember, so we took to calling him Chanting Totem, and that what has stuck).

- Jim James, How To Dress Well, iamamiwhoami, Lil Spook, Jogger, Arthur Russell, Growing, Zoo Kid, Julia Holter, King Krule, anything from the guys in YMO, Lee Hazelwood, Son Lux, Gal Costa, Lou Rawls, José James, Beach House, Prince, Susan Cadogan, Baths, M83, Nick Drake, Ashra, Moondog, Tame Impala, James Blake, Blood Orange, Tycho, Growing, Grace Jones, The Weeknd, tUnE yArDs, Sam Cooke, Purity Ring, Nina Simone, The Books, Youth Lagoon, and i also think EVERY rap song should have a cameo by Snoop (take a hike if you disagree).

- Louie (CK is so brutal), The Magicians, High Maintenance, {Penny Dreadful, Broad City, Master of None, Jessica Jones, Gotham, Humans (I found my own artwork hanging as a poster on the bedroom wall of one of the characters - neato!), The Knick, Ja'mie: Private School Girl, The 100, Black-ish, Ballers, The Good Wife, Silicon Valley, Girls, Game of Thrones, The West Wing, Sherlock, House of Lies, The Walking Dead, blah blah blah.

-Fresh Air, Radiolab, Song Exploder, The Daily Bugle, TAL, TEDTalks, TTBOOK, Dan Savage, Uhh Yeah Dude, Re:Sound, The Moth, Science Fridays (These are podcasts/radio in case you are lost here)

- At home i basically just eat vegetables and fruits, but i am not a vegetarian. I can't be bothered to go further into this subject (because i love to eat, and have a lot of favorites cuisines and dishes), but lets say I am mildly foodie, and most of the shit that passes for food in this country is frightening. Lately I have found that the food we make at home tastes better than the shit served at those celeb chef fine dining place. Fancy yes, but always over salted and too oily. Except SQIRL Kitchen. (Proper) Banh Mi 4 life though.
The six things I could never do without
the ocean, my passport,other sensualists, sunshine, witty banter, sex
I spend a lot of time thinking about
I seem to find myself giving a lot of unsolicited, albeit informative and entertaining (I promise!) rants about the coming of Singularity. It IS coming in our life time - if you really think you will never have a smart phone (well a smaller more powerful version of one that you will never use to physically "talk" with) implanted under the skin behind your ear that will allow you to communicate essentially telepathically through the internet cloud, then GTFO. All the technological elements are already in existence and Google will implement as soon as chips of the right speed are small enough. Kurzweil is on schedule (Hello - Google made Kurzweil himself their Goddamn Director of Engineering three years ago!!!!). The real question is - how long do we survive once we reach singularity - i predict about... 30 seconds? The topic is totally entertaining over a nice bottle of wine or two.

Joe Kittinger.
On a typical Friday night I am
I hate traffic and having to wait to be seated at dinner, so i usually stay home and work on Friday night. Also videos of slow loris' are usually viewed.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
For some reason I know the entirety of the Les Misérables musical by heart. I don't know how it was impressed upon my permanent memory, and i don't make a habit of listening to Broadway musicals in the last 15 years, so I can't understand why I still know every word! But if you play it for me I can sing the whole thing through. I sing it poorly, but with so much heart! You will be embarrassed or rolling in the aisles...
You should message me if
- You are NOT only looking for THE ONE (I already found mine - think poly, polyamorous, non-monogamous). You need a hiking or yoga partner. If you need a camping partner (I want to camp more!). If you are a scuba diver and want to nerd out about sea animals, diving, or underwater photography.

-You always wanted to be a mermaid and model underwater (this sounds stranger than it is...). instagram: dan.kitchens

Also my actual work instagram: instagram: kozyndan

-Also i don't know many poly people, so if you are one i would love to discuss (even if you and I have zero chemistry ourselves), or if you have a CamelBak and use it.

DON'T message me if: you have a picture of yourself with a Dodgers (or any sports ball team, really) cap on, a pic of yourself with your adorable little yappy dog, a pic of yourself with your equally tackily party dress-ed girlfriends at a club, by a Vegas hotel pool, or on a step and repeat, or a pic of yourself shooting guns at the gun range. Don't message me if you have a photo of yourself in front of some "angel wings" mural. Don't message me if you think walking around in Runyon Canyon is "hiking". Don't message me if you won't eat weird foods. Don't message me if you expect to be treated like a princess, or some other such Rom Com nonsense.
