My self-summary
Non-conformist who nevertheless looks good in a suit (when pressed). Stylishly casual, well-seasoned rebel who sees no end to the current seasons and reasons for rebellion. A knight-errant whose wounds have healed and is ready to begin anew with clarity and kindness. Too darn smart and witty for my own good, yet the rusty, churning flywheels of my brain do occasionally sparkle. Intellectual yet Earthy. Artistically inclined - visual, literary and musical - and capable of all sorts of mundane feats of daily survival. Always try to be kind and considerate, particularly to animals, small children and the elderly - but incapable of suffering pompous fools gladly - in which case sarcasm is my shield. Analytical, rather than judgmental. Tend to see the glass as half-full - even if the bottle is more than half-empty - and being steadily drained!
In spite of what might appear to be a few peccadilloes, I always thought I was the normal man in this crazy world.In any event, after all is said and done I'm usually a lot of fun. And in spite of what OKC thinks - I'm also wholesome and suave! (Yes, Virginia, algorithms do lie.)
Seriously looking for a truly GREAT woman to embark on a meaningful journey in a meaningless world while laughing together - all the way down the Yellow Brick Road!
OK, now I'm listening... and waiting for some voluptuous creature to startle me with good news (or else zap me back into reality with a stun gun).
What I’m doing with my life
Re-invention is a daily ritual.
I toil ceaselessly.
I’m really good at
I’ve been a chef, a musician, a filmmaker, a photographer, and finally a writer, among other things. Actually, there’s not much I can’t do, however, there's a lot I won’t do. Oh, well, maybe if you ask me pretty please...
The first things people usually notice about me
My buns. My halo. My humility. My total lack of a sense of humor.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I'm always open to new experiences... but for now-
Films: Love Me Tonight, Gods & Monsters, Sullivan’s Travels, Wrestling With Ernest Hemingway, Some Like It Hot, Arsenic And Old Lace, Casablanca, A Bronx Tale, The Sopranos, Triplets of Belleville, Breaking Bad...
Dramatists: Buechner, O'Neill, Pinter, Tennessee, Charles Ludlum, Dennis Potter, Vince Gilligan...
Books: Me, Cheetah!, In The Garden of The Beast, Shantaram, Erich Marie Remarque, Penelope Fitzgerald... but more often non-fiction... Howard Zinn, Kuznick & Stone, I Heard You Paint Houses....!
Music: Swing to Bop - Charlie Parker (the greatest artist of the 20th century!), Sidney Bechet, Louis, Duke, the Count, Prez, Bean, Hawk, Trane, Miles, Newk, Zoot, Jimmy Rowles, Tommy Flanagan... Django, Lady Day, Ray Charles, Dakota Staton, Little Jimmie Scott, James Taylor...the Great American Songbook, and not just jazz, but classical too...
Food: Simple, fresh food - nothing too pretentious - unless someone else is pretending to cook it! Essentially a Mediterranean diet, lots of fish and green veggies. However, to preserve my red corpuscles I still gotta chomp down on some poor dead creature every once in a while.
Six things I could never do without
Actually, I want it all, but kindness and clarity is enough. The rest is gravy.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Why the sun shone, having no alternative, on the nothing new.
Should I look back, or should I look ahead?
And why do we need 12 keys when we don't even use half of them?
On a typical Friday night I am
Probably having a glass of milk and some cookies, then saying my prayers before jumping into bed in order to get up early to watch the Saturday morning cartoons before hitting the farmers market.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
You must be joking!
Not even if I'm tortured!
No, please - no tickling! That's not fair!
Wait - stop - what was the question?
OK, I'll confess - my psychiatrist wrote my profile.
You should message me if
If you're looking for-
Sex with strings.
Preferably violins and cellos behind a curtain.
But only if we're in tune.
Why should we settle for anything less?
