My self-summary
I retired from the toxic American way of life at age 30, moved to Vermont with wife and child to escape the madness of NYC. The North East Kingdom of Vermont with its like minded drop out agrarian youth was a wonderful learning phase in my life. I now live on 9 acres in a log cabin in Kentucky, travel incessantly, and have a daughter and grand daughter living in Australia. I am seriously anti American government, love reading non fiction, value the sport of tennis like a religion, and am an atheist.
My daughter has made a film and written a book, subject the two of us, and both entitled the same; Bruce & Me. The film is shown from time to time on the Sundance channel, and the book is currently sold only in Australia. The book and film have to do with my daughter's back and forth between Australia and the US between the ages of 7 and 30, visiting her criminal father and then returning to her transcendentally oriented mother, the latter living on an
Aussie farm in the out back which served as a gathering center for new age meditation folks.

I am world wise, cynical, and easy going
What I’m doing with my life
Traveling to Cuba, Australia, Europe. Taking care of my Kentucky 9 acres and taking most of my inherited money out of banks, realizing that cash is king. Trust no one in government or banking. I do put some cash in Australian banks, regarding them as less of an evil as the US type. Also the 6.3% on their term deposits beats hands down the US interest rates.
I’m really good at
Tennis, playing classical piano. languages, (German and Spanish) conversing with a minimum of persiflage and formulaic phrases; serious conversations appeal to me.I find loathsome the type of persiflage of that imbecile on TV, Glenn Beck. He, Sarah Palin, Limbaugh and Hannity are the perfect barometers for judging the intelligence quotient/political awareness of the American public, ie, the Boobus Americanus.
The first things people usually notice about me
A seriousness in my emotional responses. Notwithstanding this, a wry sense of humor, being appealed to by Monty Python routines. The alleged humor of a Jerry Seinfeld I find totally without value and supremely boring.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: Anything by Tim Leary, Ed Abbey or Baba Ram Dass; The God Delusion,(Dawkins) God is Not Great,(Hitchens) Philosophy of Bertrand Russell, The Trial by Kafka, The Sorrows of Empire by C Johnson, Psychological Roots of Religious Belief; Movies:Amadeus, Angel Heart, One Eyed Jacks, A Clockwork Orange, Bad Manners, The Red Violin. Music: Schubert, Beethoven, Bach, the latter played by Glenn Gould, Shostakovitch, the Elgar cello concerto played by Jacqueline DuPre, Joan Baez, Fleetwood Mac, Huddie Leadbetter, Lasa de Sela (died recently at a young age), Rolling Stones (is there anyone on the planet cooler than Keith Richards?) and Paul Simon; I'm always amused when reading the musical leanings of others on OKC. The absurdly sounding names of the groups I've never heard of cause me to smile. The Arthritic Monkeys, Let's Go! , The Twisted Asses!
Food: A vegetarian diet including avocados, peas, corn, Greek salads.
Six things I could never do without
My Kawasaki 800 bike both in Ky and in Australia, Cuban friends, Greek salads, books, visiting Australia, CDs of Schubert's impromptus for piano. Needless to say, I could do without any of those if I had to. Going to Cuba illegally has been such a hassle that I don't do that much anymore. Been there 36 times since '93.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Eros, the criminals in the US government, what their just punishment should be and how wonderful were that to occur, the absurdity and toxicity of organized religion. Becoming an atheist was so easy. All I did was review all the ludicrous beliefs in supernatural entities down thru the ages to understand that the human mind is so vulnerable to such adult fairy tales. One can easily recognize examples of the toxicity of organized religion, examples being the malignant stupidity of the church of England in their suppression of Darwin's monumental work on evolution, the innumerable religious wars down thru history, and currently the emotional plague on the part of the Boobus Americani in their insistence on the notion of intelligent design worthy of being taught in high school science classes.
On a typical Friday night I am
Reading, traveling, playing tennis under lights, thinking. Maybe looking at Orion or Scorpio constellations.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I was known to be a bank/insurance company scammer in my youth, before the inheritances occurred. No need for that now. (I had to support the family some how, having dropped out of the rat race)
You should message me if
You can relate to my type of personality and values. I'm sufficiently open minded to be able to listen respectively to most held ideologies however bogus. I created the bio truthfully and controversial to separate the wheat from the chaff amongst the other Cupids, keeping the responses at a low number. The enemy rating of almost all the members I've contacted is rarely lower than 60%.
Keep in mind that those who write Never! re drug experiences seem as absurd and close minded to me as do those ancient priests who refused to look into Galileo's telescope which would have shown the heliocentric nature of the solar system. Those who are the never! writers should realize that they have become victims of the fear, greed and ignorance of the anti drug cabal. Certain drugs can be one's educator par excellance. This never! crowd would improve their mind set markedly by reading some of the literature by the pro drug authors such as Aldous
Huxley, Tim Leary, Alan Watts, Terrence McKenna and Baba Ram Dass.
