My self-summary
PROLOGUE; If you see me on "Quickmatch", and you give me a "Like", I won't see them because only "A-list" members get to see them, and I don't feel like paying for that. When they say "we'll let him know", they are lying. they don't let me know who you are, it's just a come-on to get us to pay, and they already have paid ads. "Quickmatch" is a trick and a waste of time! Find my profile (A search for Scorpios my age should work), drop me a line that says "Hi". I will answer :-) Now the Profile...
Aimez-vous le Cinema Francais?
I also watch Swedish, German, Russian, Senegalese, Belgian, Italian,Greek, Hungarian, Mexican and Spanish films. I have a big collection and watch them on my yoga wall with a projector. I also like yoga. I am into healing, culinary and magickal herbs and I have a rather wild, unkempt garden that produces lavender, sage, thyme, rosemary, marjoram (my favorite), catnip, lettuce, mache (perrenial!), celery, kale, potatoes, plums and several species of mint. I quit television decades ago. Everyone keeps telling me how great HBO series are, but I guess I haven't drunk the kool-aid. I have tried to watch them and just can't get into it. Too many great foreign films to see. Also I don't like the style of TV shows, if you can call that a style. And I love to read books, mostly history, but occasionally fiction. It's hard to tell the difference sometimes.

I have a son, but he is grown and recently moved out, so I have more free time now. I still hang out with him once a week, we have a great relationship, but I am pretty much " off-duty" now :-)
RE:OKCupid Questions. These questions are so unbelievably dumb, irrelevant, subjective and case-sensitive that I answered the questions sarcastically, with explanations. For most people this means OKCupid will tell you "Y'all Have Issues", or that we are "59% Enemies" or something like that. Click on "unacceptable answers" to find out why...but please don't just glance at their techno-evaluation based on nonsense questions and take their opinion seriously. For almost all of their questions, the correct answer should be "It Depends on the Situation". It's bad enough that potential friends over-analyze each other before taking a chance, but it's even worse if you let a computer eliminate your possibilities! I believe anything is possible and I wouldn't want someone to be a carbon-copy of me.
It takes time to get to know a person, and answering a bunch of silly questions seems, to me, to unnecessarily confusing.
Message me if you have any specific questions:) I will answer honestly.
I am into Love, and Honesty.
I also absolutely LOVE silent films, mostly foreign ones.
There are no limits to my imagination.
What I’m doing with my life
Yoga, meditation, hanging out in my garden, and watching cinema on my home projector...I don't watch teevee or spend much time at computer. I am not on Facebook and never have been and you won't see me playing with my smartphone. Ever. Doing this is totally alien to me and i feel like typing just whatever. I would usually rather be taking a bath, with music and candles than doing something productive. I have already done plenty of stuff and now i am just trying to enjoy life while its still legal.
I’m really good at
saying the wrong thing.
The first things people usually notice about me
That i am different. So either they like me or are scared of me. I don't really care either way, usually. To thine own self be true.

Films: 400 Blows. McCabe and Mrs. Miller, The Killing of A Chinese Bookie, The Long Goodbye, The Passion of Joan of Arc (silent), Freaks (1932), Winter Light, La Strada, Mikey and Nicky, Au Hasard Balthazar, Daughters of the Dust, Bush Mama, Killer of Sheep, Le Jour Se leve, The Unknown...if you want to know what recent films I liked: Tangerine, Carol, 45 Years, The Thoughts That Once We Had, Gett, Mustang, Two Days One Night, From What is Before, Blancanieves, Nymph(o)maniac, The Kid With A Bike, We Need To Talk About Kevin, Beasts of the Southern Wild, Chungking Express(1994...almost recent), Goodbye to Language. I try not to eat too much food, but I do know how too cook and occasionally like a GOOD restaurant.... i eat healthy and do yoga. I never ever eat cupcakes, even tho i like to look at them.
Music: Puccini, Verdi, Donizetti, Bach, Schumann, Albinoni, Hendrix, Jefferson Airplane, Coltrane, Bix Beiderbecke, Hot Lips Page, The Voices of East Harlem, The Seldom Scene, Bobby Womack, Sammy Davis, Jr. and much, much more.

1) Friends/Family
2) paleo food/organic farmer's market
3)Cinema/hi-def projector/Karagarga/Mubi
4) art
I spend a lot of time thinking about
how to empty my mind of all thought. This is especially difficult as I often have the news blaring on the radio. At the moment I am thinking how to subvert "quickmatch", it only shows stars to paying subscribers..find me on "search" (Scorpios my age) and drop me a "Hi". I will answer.
On a typical Friday night I am
reading a book or watching a film, on my projector, on the wall. Really I am a Morning Person, and I love to go to the cinema, but I go to matinees when i can. If you are reading this on "quickmatch", don't do the stars, I won't see them. Find me on a "search" (Scorpios my age) and send me a "Hi". I will answer.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I am a terribly honest person and would rather you not have anything to do with me than have to lie in order to be with you. You can ask me anything (in person) and i will either tell you the truth, or that it isn't any one else's business. I hope that you also be truthful if you want to spend any time with me.
If you are on "quickmatch", I don't automatically see "like"s...find me on "search" (Scorpios my age) and drop me a "Hi". I will answer.
You should message me if
IF you want to meet me. I'm not sending out too many messages, if I did send you a message it's because I think that you are fantastic, it isn't part of a bulk mailing, it is a unique message directed at you. If you are free weekends and/or mornings. And If you just want to chat about cinema or art. Especially if you like my film list and seeing (mostly) foreign/arthouse films. Or silent films (not comedies).
I also like walking around, especially towards the end of the day.
I am looking for friends who are amazing.
I'm looking for friends to screen films with.
I don't usually send out messages, so if you want to, write to me, and I promise to answer anyone! Even if I saw you visit me, and you seem interesting, I probably won't send you a message first but if you are interested, know that age/looks don't matter to me. Friendship is about how people feel good when they are together...PS. Please don't give me a LIKE and hope i will write to you, because OKCupid doesn't show those to people who don't pay them (like me). Just drop me a message. I will answer you.
ADDENDUM, 3/12/16: Please write :) Not just LIKEs. I see people are still giving me LIKEs, I am flattered but I don't know who you are. "Quickmatch" is a fake-out. Find me on a Search (Scorpios my age), drop me a simple message. I don't normally send out messages to people who haven't written to me first... Women, take the initiative, please? I won't ignore you or send you a rude response. And it doesn't have to be a big long message...a few words is enough.
