I like to have a drink and/or meal with friends or go to a show. I like it when I have time for these things.
I used to paint cosmonauts, WWI flying aces and jungle explorers of the 19th century. Lately, I have been reduced to the odd doodle now and then.
What I spend my time reading: Supernatural Romance (this is a lie), Matthew Bender's various frustrating publications.
Music: The Zombies, The Kinks, Sunset Rubdown, Black Sabbath, Wanda Jackson, The Jam, The Gories, Cab Calloway, Louvin Brothers, Johnny Cash, Magnetic Fields, Elvis Perkins, The Dutchess and The Duke.
Which eccentric old man hobby is best to cultivate.
- Pigeon Fancying?
- Collecting Vintage Tweed?
- Paintings of Early Bi-planes?
- Annotating the New York Times in Red Pen?
- Castigating Youth?
- Speed Walking in Tiny 80's Style Nylon Shorts?
- The "Old Fiddle" or "Two Man Violin" Scam?
You are interested in talking about serious things in a silly manner and silly things in a serious manner.
You're over, ambivalent about or at least deeply questioning 'the scene', 'burningman' and 'polyamory'.
You are amused by the return of Bloom County.
You wonder if the repeated use of the phrase "partner in crime" in OKC profiles is a secret code related to actual criminality or even something more sinister.
You find endless, uncontrollable, frenzied babbling about the esoteric things amusing. For Example: I can totally explain the most recent Supreme Court rulings using a fair number of silly examples and cuss words (if I have read them - which I usually haven't).
