I suppose I have my life ducks in a row, live effortlessly organized, exist drama-free, and thankfully...financially secure. I can write my own hall passes at work to create free time for myself. I do tend to look for free-spirited women to let's say...'mess my stuff up'. I am quick-witted, irreverent, logically practical, yet Romantic with a 19th Century capital 'R'.
I strive to remain unflinchingly non-judgmental, and would not say...to a fault. I celebrate diversity in all lifestyles. I'm not sure why OKCupid posts that I might be 'more capitalistic'. I find that surprising, since I rarely spend time thinking about money, and support the working class.
I'm not religious, or even spiritual for that matter, but I am a raging secular humanist. If we do in fact have 'souls, 'music' is by far the easiest way to reach mine. I can't imagine not having music in my life.
When not working, I see live music as MUCH as possible. Currently rockabilly and trad jazz are in heavy rotation on my Life-iPod. I also travel around America for music & swing dance events. Since I've mastered the Lindy Hop, I now want to learn Argentine Tango.
I like riding my motorcycle and driving my Triumph Spitfire (British roadster car) up and down the Delaware.
Other than work, I am looking for more people of great character to spend time with, inspire me, and give me a better sense of community.
2) ice blue eyes?
3) pompadour haircut that I get tightened up every other week?
I'm not sure. My female friends often compliment me on how I present myself...dress, home decor, etc. I have no real need for that whole 'Queer Eye' thing, thank you very much.

'Mickey, you forgot to mention you cook! As long as you leave sewing out, you're fine'.
BOOKS: 1984, The Exorcist (W.P. Blatty), Memoirs of a Geisha, Contact, My Side Of The Mountain, The Road Less Traveled, To Kill A Mockingbird, The Road, Watchmen (graphic novel), World War Z ...I should probably read more. Although it's not a favorite, I've read The Five Love Languages..."words of affirmation" if you're interested.
MOVIES: Some of my 'recent' favorites are Inglorious Basterds, Bridesmaids, There Will Be Blood & Anchorman. I'll watch anything by Terrence Mallick, Stanley Kubrick, Martin Scorsese, Steven Spielberg or Ridley Scott.
more? How about The Godfather, The Exorcist (Friedkin), The Sound of Music & Sunset Boulevard. I'm partial to contemporary indie dramas, artsy horror films, Oscar-nominated stuff, this list is endless...
SHOWS: nope...TV is lame
THEATER: I've seen Punchdrunk's Sleep No More nine times, and I can't wait to go again.
MUSIC: Now onto the important stuff. Here we go...
rockabilly, big band swing, 20s-60s jazz, 40s-60s vintage country, 80s-90s speed metal, hardcore punk, non-corporate pop punk, indie rock
Bruce Springsteen, Van Halen, Social Distortion, SLAYER, Sick Of It All, Green Day, Rancid, Dance Hall Crashers, The Gaslight Anthem, Pokey LaFarge...should I go on?
FOOD: I'll be the first to admit that food as a hobby somewhat bores me. A $7 burrito at Chipotle is the perfect meal for me: clean, inexpensive, healthy & unprocessed. I've been strict vegetarian for 24 years, so that focuses my tastes. BTW, I don't care if you're not vegetarian. It takes all kinds. I'll eat anything made with pumpkin (sweet or savory). Lebanese is by far my favorite cuisine. I dig fresh Mexican. Thai & Japanese allows me to eat vegan. I can usually find room for anything sweet with cinnamon.
5) my job
None of these are physical 'things', so that says something about my desire to live a life without 'stuff'. My gypsy roots are manifest.
You shouldn't message me if you are making duck lips in any of your profile pics. Also, if any of your profile pics feature you holding up a drink at a bar...I'm probably not the guy for you.
