Stuff you may or may not want to know...I no longer drink but know A LOT about wine and spirits. Humphrey Bogart's quintessential anti-hero and Sherlock Holmes' critical thinking were, and still are, huge influences on my thinking in early adolescence. Flummoxed may be my favorite non-cuss word word. When I hit powerball I'm buying a Tuscan Villa. I've owned T. Rex's "The Slider" in some way shape or form in every decade I've been alive. The Small Faces are my favorite British Invasion band. Anything Memphis/Stax is my favorite soul. Johnny Thunders and The Heartbreakers' L.A.M.F. may be the the most perfect Rock n Roll record ever made. Please feel free to message me if you disagree.
MOVIES: Love them too. Mostly Film Noir. There's more...just ask.
R.I.P. Alan Rickman, you will be missed sir.
MUSIC: Raw ass Rock 'n' Roll... Johnny Thunders, Dead Boys, The Cramps, Motorhead (I am sadness), Ramones (alas sadness), Bowie (maybe the most sadness), Power Pop, etc...Be Bop, Honky Tonk, Rockabilly, fucked up 50's & 60's R&B...
FOOD: Never met a cheese I didn't like (except Grayson). Seriously love food...good food be it diner, bar, or fine dining. Definitely NOT vegetarian, but I'm ok if you are. I tend to mock vegans.
T.V.: The Simpsons (1st 9 seasons) and The Wire are the greatest things TV has produced. Breaking Bad, True Detective Season 1, Leftovers, Fargo, Walking Dead, Z Nation, Ash Vs. Evil Dead, Manhattan, Mr. Robot...Mr. Robot deserves a second notice, The Americans...
I get a lot of questions about this, so here ya go, if you care:

Punk? Power Pop? Who cares, it's great: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PGnLx1wj9ZI
Current obsession, Australia's best: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IpgVZVZVgpo
If any of this makes you go out and buy a Big Star or Plimsouls or Real Kids record...awesome!
DON"T IF: You consider yourself a Young Professional (what the fuck does that even mean?)
It takes you more than one sentence comprised of many multisyllabic words to describe your sexuality.
