As for my intent here, I am at the age where most of my friends are settled/settling down and leaving the 'bar scene' behind and I figured, since the internet and social media are the preferred method of finding what you're looking for in every other walk of life, why not give this a shot. I am not looking to get married in three months, but I also don't want to be the 45 year old dad at kindergarten and tee ball games.
I have traveled somewhat in my life, only left the country twice though, and once was Montreal (not that Canada isn't a foreign country, but c'mon, its Canada). Some of my favorite cities are Chicago, San Francisco, Memphis, New Orleans, and my favorite place on Earth is Disney World. I know it sounds absurd, but the place really is magic.
Musically, my top three artists are Pearl Jam, Bruce Springsteen and The Rolling Stones. Beyond them, I like pretty much anything you'd find on a good jukebox in a corner bar. And, I have a love and respect for Motown and old soul/R&B that is unnatural for a 30-something year old white guy... can't get enough Sam Cooke or Temptations
While my TV is usually on, its mostly background noise or sports or some kind of syndicated reruns just to serve as white noise. When I am paying attention, I watch a staggering amount of HGTV and DIY for a guy who doesn't own tools or a house. I more or less like to see what the cost of living is across the country. Boggles my mind when you see people in the midwest buying a 4 bedroom house in the suburbs for the price of a rowhome in Camden or North Philly. When it comes to scripted shows, I'd trade almost all of it for one day as Tim Riggins. Walter White froze to death in the car and the rest was his dying dream. Roger Sterling was the real star of Mad Men.
My favorite foods are more of the standards, pizza, Italian, Chinese, barbecue, sandwiches (love a good PB&J). I gave up soda a few years ago as a new year's resolution and am amazed at how I don't miss it at all. I drink a ton of water, gatorade and crystal light. When it comes time to let my hair down, I am a pretty cut and dry beer guy.
