I live by the principles of my influences: Monty Python, Looney Tunes, John Muir, Mad Magazine of the 1970’s, Richard Scarry, Dr. Seuss, Dr. Who, Leo Tolstoy, Mr. Rogers, The Clash, and Tom Robbins. For all who say you can't summarize yourself in a sentence, there's your proof it can be done.
Favorite movie: "Once Upon a Time in the West."
When asked, "if you could be anyone else who would you choose?" I inevitably choose Tom Waits. Except I don't get cranky if you take me fishing. Otherwise, based on my record collection, favorites are Screamin' Jay Hawkins, Syl Johnson, James Brown, Etta James, Ann Peebles, and Ohio Players. Oh, and Billy Stewart.
I love ice cream. Repeat: love ice cream. My favorite flavor of ice cream is "ate". If you think me to be date-able, ask me out for ice cream and I'll grab my coat right damn now.
How white people need minorities and immigrants to save us from ourselves in the upcoming election.
Why all my white friends stopped posting links to Daily Show videos since Trevor Noah took over, even though he is a better host/commentator than John Stewart. (Apparently I've been thinking a lot about race in America as of late.)
How the main difference between people at a Trump rally and a Sanders rally is the old hippies in the crowd.
The myth of sustainability and how it blows the minds of people when you explain to them how it's just a feel-good form of consumerism. (Needless to say I LOVE doing this in Madison.)
What makes that so unusual? I wasn't drinking a glass of wine when I did it.
I name the jumping spiders that keep the fruit flies away from my bananas.
I've had people tell me that on a rainy day or when they are feeling down it's fun to answer my questions to read my explanation essays. You'll get entertainment value out of this profile or your money back.
You can message to say I'm a great writer but I'm not. If I am a great writer why am I writing things on a dating website instead of making a healthy living at writing?
Message if you have a good, simple dinner recipe to suggest.
