My self-summary
"Kilimanjaro is a snow-covered mountain 19,710 feet high, and is said to be the highest mountain in Africa. Its western summit is called the Masai "Ngaje Ngai," the House of God. Close to the western summit there is the dried and frozen carcass of a leopard. No one has explained what the leopard was seeking at that altitude."

I know why the leopard was there. Do you?

If that's too cryptic, you'll just have to email me.
Points for knowing the quote WITHOUT googling it.

And aren't the OK Cupid tests a hoot!
What I’m doing with my life
Trying to squeeze some pleasure and/or meaning from life. (I'll take one or the other. Both on the same day is a bonus!) That's aside from all the mundane tasks that most of us without a trust fund have to perform to keep a roof over our heads and food on the table.
I’m really good at
Listening...if you are interesting
Telling a joke
Being Focused
Being Lazy
The first things people usually notice about me
The beard. And everyone seems to think I work with someone they know.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I read. A lot. Both fiction and non-fiction. And a newspaper every day. (I know, I know, so Twentieth Century. Sue me.)

Rather than regurgitate a list of artists that will tune you right out I'll say that I like almost all music-Rock, Jazz, Blues Classical, Country (real country, not Pop with a twang) Punk-it all works for me. Not a big rap fan, (no susprise there considering my age) and most Top 40 pop music I find a bit boring. I prefer rough with emotion over polished and flat.

This week I've been listening to:
Miles Davis-Kind of Blue (it never gets old!) and The Birth of Cool.
Rolling Stones: Sticky Fingers and Let It Bleed (perfect hot weather music!)
Beach Boys: Endless Summer-also perfect hot weather music. Perfectly crafted 2 and half minute pop songs.
Steppenwolf: Live
Beethoven: I've been going through the Symphonies again.
Jeff Beck and Jan Hammer Group Live: Rockin' Fusion.
Cowboy Junkies: Trinity Sessions. One of the great recordings.

I love motion pictures. All genres, eras, subjects and styles are fair game. Again, no lists. I prefer substance over style and smart over stupid. Think Monty Python over Adam Sandler, the Coen Brothers over Tony Scott.

In the last couple of weeks: Argo, Cloud Atlas (much better than I expected!) The Maltese Falcon (maybe the single best book to screen adaptation ever) Dipping into Supernatural Seasons 1-5 (Why I love this series is beyond explanation. But I do.) The Road (maybe one of the worst book to screen adaptations ever) and The Wild Bunch.
The six things I could never do without
The Ocean at Night
The Mountains in the Morning
Really Good Coffee
A Good Book
My Daughters
OK, that's seven. Whatever.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
The coming Zombie Apocalypse.
On a typical Friday night I am
Doing stuff.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Lots of things. Where the Wild Things Are. I know where Ameila Erhardt, Judge Crater and Jimmy Hoffa are at this very moment. How many licks it takes to get to the middle of a Tootsie pop. Why the sea is boiling hot and whether pig have wings. Just not in print.
You should message me if
If this sounds at all interesting. Photo to follow.
