I am generally a laid back guy; content and friendly in large groups, talkative and affable in small ones, but always game for whatever life throws at me. And up until now, life sure hasn't been skimping in that department.
I am always on the lookout for something ORIGINAL, whether it be new or old... food, music, tv, movies, conversations, destinations. Would love to find a person who is as keen about exploring new things as I am.
Currently looking at media MBA programs
Gravity, Her, synecdoche NY, act of Killing, sky fall, avengers, dark Knight, way way back...
I will always check out new flicks from my fav directors - Scorsese, both Andersons (PT & Wes), Nolan, Fincher.
I'm also a sucker for special fx flicks, especially of the superhero variety. 31 years old going on 13 til the end baby.
TV - True Detective, Mad Men, Boardwalk Empire, Game of Thrones, Portlandia, Archer, Seinfeld, Simpsons, Sopranos, Breaking Bad, Leafs, Jays. Mr. Show, West Wing, Twin Peaks, and on and on I go.
Books - Stephen King and Michael Crichton have a close place to my heart - they were my first "adult" authors growing up, and I've read pretty much everything they've done and hooked me ever since. Recent good reads include The Idiot, Cloud Atlas, The Demon, We Need to Talk About Kevin, Black Swan (Nassim Taleb's book, even though the unrelated movie is great).
Music - Here we go again. Been listening to a downloadable playlists lately, lots of obscure indie rock . Latest include Olms, Traams, Okkervil River, Ralfe Band, Foxygen, Young Jesus, Ty Segall, White Fence, Phantogram, Me Like Bees,Jake Bugs, Arcade Fire, Strange Boys, Grouplove, Black Lips, La Sera, Teenanger, Kurt Vile, Future Islands, Bahamas. Ipod standards include: modest mouse, Black Keys, Hayden, PJ, Walkmen, Pinback, Queens of the MF Stone Age, DFA 1979, Sam Roberts, Neil, Stones, Beatles, Pixies, Radiohead, you get the idea...
Food - Pretty much anything goes. Love Mexican, French, and pretty much all Asian cooking. Toronto is a world class restaurant city so love trying new great spots too. However, Death row last meal will always be A 12oz sirloin topped with a buttered lobster tail, a bottle of shiraz to savour along with it and a chocolate shadow cake for dessert. Three fingers of scotch to finish
A book in my backpack
A coffee in hand
A beer on a sunny patio with friends
Afternoon on a dock in Muskoka at least once a summer
Better one-liners than the ones I came up with on the spot that morning ("Jerk store!")
Whatever song is repeating endlessly in my head at any given time
The best route in the city to make up for however late I am to the next appointment I'm going to...
Storms are fun...
Believe reality TV glorifies everything that's wrong with the entertainment industry, with the few exceptions out there (Top Chef being one)
Wanna try something new with a new guy
