Ummmmm?.... Let's see, what else? .... Oh yeah, also ....
I'm an over educated nerd dilettante royale with degrees in Physics and Art, among others ... with a bit of a crafty woodsy streak ... So yes, the beard IS legit! ... and so are the glasses.
I'd like to think of myself as kind of a Jack Donaghy meets Hunter S Thompson, but I might be a bit more of a Michael Bluth meets Kenny Powers. .... but either way, with a dash of Bill Murray. Which means I can be amusingly sardonic in almost any social situation. ... Umm ... and I think I mean that in a good way. ....
Ok .... Forget the rest of the verbose nonsense below .... I've got good whiskey and bad wine at home, and a hot tub out back. ... So choose your own adventure; Netflix and Chill ...or Hottub and .... Spill?
... and for those that want/need to know ... I am a "Bernie Supporter / Hillary Voter"
I'm a home owner/fixer upper, and an owner of a techie oriented business, and make a very comfortable living for Portland. ... hopefully without being a humble braggy douche about it ... this being a rare practical exception, of course.
Currently enjoying a life of understated aesthetic leisure... My Gawd, that sounds pretentious! .... I mean I have a very flexible schedule with lots of free time that allows for spontaneous AND meticulously planned adventure ... and a wee bit of Portland day slumming ....
Beyond maybe being "good at", I also "love" singing
I love to travel, and I freakishly have the time AND means to do so, and I'm really good at the logistics of travel, but I hate traveling alone and I'm lousy at the "what to see and do" kinda stuff ... *whisper* ...That's where you come in! Where should we go?
I also have a fetish for collecting Magazines ..... not to be confused with collecting magazines about fetishes.
TV? ....*smug pretentious tone* Ummm ... I don't own a TV ...
*snicker* .... I'm just mess'n with yah! .... I heat my house with TVs! ..... I watch all the shows you watch ... and a lot of the ones you don't ... and anything that involves Alaska and/or extreme truck driving. .... *cough* .... DON'T JUDGE ME, HIPPIE!!
Music? ... old Grunge, old Punk, old garage rock, outlaw country, cheesy eighties metal ....errrrrr ...also lots of current Indie crap that the hip kids are into, and Opera (season ticket holder). The last few shows I've been to were Man or Astroman?, Guitar Wolf, Jason Lytle, Punkrock Bowling and Music Festival in Vegas, Sub Pop's 25th Year Jubilee, The Postal Service, The Yeah Yeah Yeahs, the FYF Music Fest in LA, Dead Moon, Meatloaf's Rocktales & Cocktails in Vegas (OMG!!), The Pixies, Guided By Voices, The Replacements, Band of Horses, Black Sabbath, and The Descendants.
Food? ... I love all kinds of food ... I seriously can't keep up with what our town has to offer ... I love all the amazing ethnic food ... made by white people with incomplete Masters degrees .... that Portland is known for ... and I love ethnic good that's actually made by ethnic people too ... yes that actually exists here ... *whisper* I know a place!
Artists? ... Jeff Koones, Paul Caponigro, Andy Goldsworthy, Vito Acconci, Miguel Calderon, Chuck Close, Damien Hirst, Survival Research Laboratories, and others.
Oh, and I suppose this is as good a place as any to disclose for your approval or dismissal, that I don't give a crap about watching sports, whether Pro or College ... not my thing ... I'm much more of an arts, music, and movies kinda guy ... a couple of rare exceptions would be watching Pro Cycling or going to my small home town's high school football games.
.... do nerds in tight jeans dream of electric motorcycles?
..... sure, the Oxford Comma .... but what about the Princeton Ellipsis? ... or the Vermont Vo-Tech Shwa?
....Astronomy, Cosmology, Physics, Philosophy, Politics, Religion, Economics, Technology, Design, Art, Photography, and Film. ....and the fusion of Science and Art, i.e. "The Third Culture"
.... replacing a moss covered trailer down by the river with a cozy tiny moss covered cabin down by the river. ... *whisper* ... I need some help with this
..... learning to sail.
..... where is the best Thai Steak Salad in town?
.... cashing out and opening a Moose Burger cart in Alaska ... or buying a sheep ranch in New Zealand? .... or maybe stay closer to home and starting a goat farm? ... doing any of these things with an amazing partner is pretty much mandatory ... just say'n
... you want to go do a Karaoke duet of Paradise by the Dashboard Lights ... with me ... preferably
.... you're a fellow Sapiosexual, that has a thing for cool dapper nerds ... ummmm .... but without being weird or creepy about it!
... you are a clever, engaging, together, and independent woman who is more "Muse" than "Fury", and more "kick ass" than "punch in the gut".
... and please be single(ish) and be open and clear about what you are looking for, and I promise that I'll do the same
