Soft-spoken, yet hard-driven -- and can carry a big shtick. Yet I've had my challenges in life, both silly & serious. It might have started when I attended an inner city grammar school in my youth, where I learned to dance to the Jackson Five, and mastered the finger-roll layup in street-basketball. I'm sure your challenges have been a bit...different.
Gratitude is one of my favorite words.
I have a soft spot for hand-made goods, crafts, and other fine arts -- draws me in. I have an academic bent, with an admitted weakness for scientific or history tomes -- I can devour them. But don't worry, I would always save an 'appetite' for you, so go ahead and regale me with your own life tales, obsessions (or mis-adventures).
Which brings up...you. You sometimes give in to 'under-thinking' the moment, yet freely over-think your passions. You might have some sort of design or fashion sense. Not looking for a clone of my tastes & interests--counterpoint is good. Sharing is fun. I do read the profiles, after ogling your pics.
And I freely admit that I'm a "nice guy". There, I said it. Adding to that sentiment, I tend to be fairly mild mannered, refined in my general disposition. So if you can't help yourself around a guy with more rough edges than low grade sand paper, uh we're probably not a match. You might say I march to the beat of my own drummer.
Word play -- OKC questions are fun. I do like to write.
Leading local urban history & geography walks. A minor passion of mine.
I like to cook -- blame my dear mom and her Swiss 'au pair' past for that.
MUSIC: As a true Oakland native, my early tastes were forged in James Brown, then grooved by Jerry Garcia, sharpened by Too $hort, punked by Green Day, and then expanded by EDM. Now refined by a Chopin etude, or a Bach cantata, heh.
MOVIES: Bulworth, Wag the Dog, Woody Allen 'presents'... , La Dolce Vita, Bridesmaids, Back to School, Dr Strangelove, Beetlejuice, CitizenKane, Bowfinger... get the Picture?
SHOWS: As in TV? Don't watch that anymore. If you do, have at it. I did watch Celebrity Rehab awhile back just for the meltdowns.
Having lived a bit, I've collected a wise aphorism or two to guide my humble existence. Maybe you too will agree that:
1. Modesty is my best quality.
2. You should never take anybody's advice.
3. Anonymity is my claim to fame.
4. A life of ease is a difficult pursuit.
If you want to know more, just ask me about my vow of silence. After all, life is too important to be taken seriously.
You like to kiss. And dance -- even if everyone is watching.
You prefer we meet soon and engage our senses rather than idly construct idealizations built on abstract representations. In plain English, let's hang out.
