My self-summary
I am "Available,"as a friend, drinking partner, record-shopping partner, biking-and-hiking partner, FWB or an on-the-side guy.
What I’m doing with my life
Avoiding ablative behavior, when I can. I'm getting better at it. (I think I made up the term "ablative behavior!")

Working and over-using hyphens, whatever that means. Keeping my shoulders back, back straight and chin up. Posture. Wearing solid shoes to work. Solid footing on solid ground. As a rock.

I bike most places I go. Or take public transit. Why do they so rarely check tickets?
I’m really good at

Playing "Delia" by Johnny Cash.

Correcting people's grammar and spelling (as well as my own!).

Riding my bike with no hands.


"...long exposures...", indeed....
The first things people usually notice about me
I dunno, my eyeglasses?

Probably a subtle, judgmental sideways glance at the annoying couple sitting at the bar.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: David Byrne's Bicycle Diaries. His lyrics are better than his prose.
Our Band Could Be Your Life by Michael Azzerad.
Steep Approach To Garbardale by Iain Banks. Makes me want to read The Wasp Factory and The Bridge again.
Michael Ondaatje.
The Nasty Bits by Anthony Bourdain, The Ginger Man by JP Donleavy, The Road by Cormac McCarthy, Work and Other Sins, a collection of writings by Charlie LeDuff, NYTimes columnist. Lots of bits about drinking and NYC bars and post 9-11 stuff.

Music: Jeff the Brotherhood once changed the shape of my head with the flange on that bass!

The Hold Steady, Television, Mr. Airplane Man.

I have Metal Church s/t, Malcom McClaren-Fans, Iggy Pop-Instinct and Iggy Pop-Blah Blah Blah both on LP AND cassette!

I really only want to listen to Exile On Main Street, however. SoulSurvivor.

Food: I like all kinds of food. Carl's Jr.
I had a Gyro yesterday, couldn't help myself.
Prime Rib.

Movies: Yes, I enjoy watching movies.
Big Lebowski is a favorite that comes to mind.
Flash Gordon.
The Devil and Daniel Johnston. AIRPLANE!

Shows: I'm a big fan of Spaced, Mad Men, The Wire, Sopranos, Downton Abbey, TRAILER PARK BOYS and South Park.
I really like British copper shows (Prime Suspect, Luther, which is why I wrote it that way, because that's how he says it.)
The six things I could never do without
-Vinyl records
-Jesus walking on water
-Guided By Voices
-Film cameras (and film, duh....)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
"How to fight loneliness?"

How I can be better at being me, whatever that may turn out to be that day.

"You're" vs. "your."
"There, their, they're...."

Alex Grey paintings.

How putting the word YAY in all-caps and quotes makes the whole thing "Post," according to Suzy. "YAY!"

Oh, and sex, 'cause who doesn't?

Flip flops, UGH! Do I really need to see your toenails?
On a typical Friday night I am
Laying around or stalking the Bing Lounge or walking the neighborhood. Or drinking some cider.

Or seeing some band/hearing live music.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I don't really know what "ablative behavior" is, but it sounded good.

Also, I really dig Edie Brickel & New Bohemians' song "Nothin'," and "Circle." Heck that whole record kills.

Girl Talk is sonic collage, not "mash-ups."

How is it I can sing along to Toto-Hold The Line?!? I never owned any of their shit!
You should message me if
If you're the lady who sang Divinyls' "I Touch Myself" at Ladd's Inn karaoke that random Friday night two years ago. Ladd's Inn, RIP.

You want to ride through the alleys of Ladd's Addition! Funnest thing to do in Portland on a bike! Sublime, even.

I don't bite (unless you consent) and I'm perfectly harmless.

Message me first! I really respect a woman that sees something she likes and gets it.
