New to the area (Norcal transplant), looking for "real" people down here (body and soul). No interest in the "image" mentality (what you drive, what you wear, where you work), interested in who you are and whats your story.
Dad of two teens (boy and girl) (raised them full time until recently, now one to college and the other to boarding school (Harvard bound).
Like movies, don't watch TV much (except Garfunkel & Oats and The Black List), Two years of film history so my taste are wide ranging on flicks, just looking for a good story well told (Kingdom of Heaven, Troy, Lawrence of Arabia, Gandhi, Shivago - anything Ridley Scott or David Lean). The Other Guys (best comedy of all time). I am starting to produce some indie films.
I love all music,, but I'm mostly into alt rock (indie if possible), classic rock (not the top 100 all time radio junk), b-sides (the song on the other side of the 45, but it doesn't work well with CDs or MP3s :-), gotta get my dose of country rock too, some cool jazz (not the irritating kind people pretend to like) and yes some opera and classical (tosca live is the best, saw figaro recently), music festivals, car shows, country bars, jazz clubs, indie shows, black and white balls, as long as its a fun safe environment.
Love live theater and am in London at least once a year so always hit Charing Cross in the West End (if you know, then you know)...
Foodie, but I don't eat beef, pork or lamb, mostly veg but I do love the seafood. I don't drink soda, but do enjoy a cold craft beer and great wines, maybe a "bourbontucky". I like to cook when I have time. Wine enthusiast but by no means close to advanced, but very interested in learning more.
My kids of course (guess I should probably list them first)
Some musical instrument to goof around with (I play guitar, drums, keyboards, bass, percussion),
A great mattress (for sleeping, where was your mind going with that)
Learning something new
Peace, Love and Understanding
Ways to vacation more
The Arts - all of them; Music, Film, Sculpture, Painting, Theater, Dance
My kids, their health, their happiness, their grades, their next level of education, their future, did they brush, floss, shower (i have a son remember)... all that parenting stuff :-0
The human condition and why people focus on whats them different instead of what makes them all the same.
Origins of the universe and it's (and my) final destination.
The MOMENT (being present).
