My self-summary
Just your average talkative, curious, adventurous type, but I also appreciate the value of relaxing. I've always believed in equilbrium, and finding balance in life. There's a Buddhist concept that I really agree with, where your age and experiences are important but not defining. You still have various aspects to your personality..... your child self, your elderly wise self, your innocent self, your warrior self. You can be 18 and appreciate some profound wisdom; you can be 70 and still laugh at Woody Woodpecker. That's how I look at things, I guess. I know this makes no sense, but I had to fill the space in.
What I’m doing with my life
Well, I work at a printing company doing both old-school offset and digital printing.

I also write fiction and poetry, get published occasionally in small lit journals. And I wrote a screenplay that was purchased and (hopefully) one day be's sort of a dour black comedy about various blind dates occuring during the course of a apocalypse.
I’m really good at
Telling stories.

I'm a very attentive listener.

I like conjuring and interjecting good moods. It's corny, but I like seeing people happy.

I've written 2 really bad novels, so now I'm focusing on the novella form, which, of course, is a almost totally unsaleable format.

I can dislocate my thumbs.

I can be pretty funny sometimes (other times I try and fail miserably though).
The first things people usually notice about me
My eyes (bluish-greenish) get lots of attention.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I have always been a avid reader, everything from classic lit to modern poetry to history. I especially dig autobiographical fiction.

Some of my movie faves are BLADE RUNNER, BEFORE SUNRISE, LAST PICTURE SHOW, the original STAR WARS films, DAWN OF THE DEAD, APOCALYPSE NOW, cheesy Spaghetti Westerns, lame 80's teen comedies, weirdo art films from Alexjandro Jodorowsky and Werner Herzog......

As for music.....I "came of age" in the 1990's, so to speak, graduating from HS in 1992. The music of that decade will always resonate with me; the FM soundtrack to many young adventures and heartbreaks.

Some other random faves.....Daft Punk, The Cure, Bob Dylan, The Deftones, Bauhaus, Echo And The Bunnymen, The Rolling Stones, Amos Lee, Ann DiFranco, M83, PJ Harvey, Motown, Johnny Cash, The Beatles, Black Flag, St Vincient, Cat Power.....
Six things I could never do without
Family, friends, books, art, movies, and coffee.

And my e-cigarette! I just quit smoking after 25 years of pack-a-day Salems. I now have a Joyetech e-cigarette and love it. So both smokers and non-smokers are cool with me.....I'm just a inclusive guy.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Everything and nothing.
On a typical Friday night I am
Either relaxing at home and writing, or watching old movies, or going out with friends for a nice dinner and a few drinks afterwards, or checking out live music, or just having a conversation with someone interesting. I'm easy to please, and don't need to run around manically to have a good time.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'll tell you when we get acquainted.
You should message me if
If you think we have something to talk about? Or think I'm cute?
The two of us
