I like my family, and I've got wonderful, colorful friends. I'm down to earth, not impressed by glitz, and believe a person's value comes from within. I'm passionate about my hobbies, and serious about my career.
I'm open to making some new friends and having some fun along the way, but I'd like to find someone to share my life with. Are you intelligent? Funny? Educated? Take care of yourself? We might be a good match!
Music? I'll listen to anything as long as it's good! Try this crazy guy: "რობი / Outsider - ლოკავს". No idea what language he's singing in. Georgian maybe? Or these guys: Sun Hop Fat's "Kasaleftkut Hulu". Locals! PJ Harvey, Link Wray, The Drifters, Chris Joss, Carla Bley, Nick Cave, Dollar Brand, Eliades Ochoa, Soul Coughing, Mary Lou Wiliams, Steve Reich. Tons of stuff. Check out youtube for Saint Privat's "Une, Deux, Trois", Ane Brun's "Do you Remember", Selah Sue's rendition of "No Sunshine", this crazy guy: Irakli Charkviani "Zgvas gavxar" or "Menatraba", "Sun in the Sand" by Hussein El Masry, or for a laugh, try DJ Roz's "Beatles vs. Metallica - when I saw sandman standing there" (sure to make you smile. I like a little variety!)
I don't watch much tv, and I'm picky about movies. I'm more likely to watch the Daily Show, or Frontline than Fox News, though I sometimes listen to the blow-hards on AM talk radio just to stay "informed".
Food? I love to eat! One of life's simple (or sometimes not so simple!) pleasures. Anything as long as it's good. I don't eat very much fast food though I'll eat a burrito from a good "roach coach" or tacqueria. I enjoy a fancy meal shared with friends, though I generally eat pretty simply when dining alone.
For some reason, a lot of ladies were asking me about drinking, so I figured I'd touch on that delicate subject! I drank beer when when I was a kid, but gave it up for many years. After a couple of trips to Germany, I started drinking beer again, though not often. I grew up with good wine on the table, so it was never a big deal ("snob appeal" is _so_ unappealing!) I started drinking port a while ago. A good one is sweet, smooth, velvety, like chocolate-covered cherries melting in your mouth. My favorite Scotch is Laphroaig, either quarter-cask or triple-wood, though I don't drink much. I love the way it smells, rich, warm, smoky, exotic. Special occasions. Anyway, I don't drink much, so why not put something special in your mouth when you do?
Good friends, interesting ideas, a worthy project, good food, good music. Oh, and a good woman!
