What I like:
The Oxford comma
Sesame seed bagels.
Tattoos [looking to get my fourth soon]
I'm in an awesome show choir called Indy Spotlight.
The way to my heart is through a great mixed cd.
On the facial hair scale, I prefer scruffy to bearded.
I don't date anyone younger than myself. Apparently a few of you are taking that as a challenge. Please, don't. It's not cute.
I thoroughly enjoy going on cruises and I typically go on one every year or so. If you can't get down with relaxing on a ship while it sails across the ocean, we probably can't be friends.
BOOKS: I love to read! I recently finished Wool and I highly suggest it to anyone looking for a good book. Next on my list is Zoo or The Martian.
MOVIES: I enjoy all sorts of films. Some of my favorites are: You've Got Mail, Sister Act, LOTR, Pride & Prejudice, Batman, Serenity, Avengers, Wall-E, Thor, Love Actually, most anything Disney or Pixar, and most musicals.
SHOWS: House of Cards, the Following, Lost, Dexter, HIMYM, American Horror Story, Doctor Who, Firefly, Sherlock, Grey's Anatomy, New Girl, House, Criminal Minds, Are You Afraid of the Dark.
MUSIC: I listen to almost anything. Here are a few examples of what's currently playing in Sam's Epic iTunes Library: Typhoon, Bon Iver, St. Paul & the Broken Bones, Wicked soundtrack, The Raconteurs, The Book of Mormon (simply hilarious. If you have a sense of humor, you must listen to it.), Joe Bonamassa, Birdy, Andy D, AWOL, Muse, Of Monsters & Men, The Avett Brothers, Florence + The Machine, The Civil Wars, Iron & Wine, A Fine Frenzy, The Black Keys, Brown Bird, Sara Bareilles, Ingrid Michaelson, Sinatra, and some Classic Rock. This changes weekly and sometimes daily.
It's really disappointing to hear so many people say "I love everything except (insert genre here)." More than likely there is one song/artist in that genre that you will like. But how will you know if you won't give it a chance? Try to keep an open mind people.
FOOD: I appreciate anything from burgers to fine dining. I love great food and I love to cook.
I know that's 7 items. I'm a rebel.
Beach Foam by Future Islands
Blister in the Sun by Violent Femmes
Thrash Unreal by Against Me!
500 Miles by the Proclaimers
Canned Heat by Jamiroquai
Madness by Muse
However, you should NOT message me if...you can't find the punctuation keys on the keyboard, say any variation of 'swagger' or 'YOLO', can't form a mostly proper sentence, or if you use 'waz', 'wuz', 'wuts' to substitute 'what's'. It won't kill you to type a few more letters, I promise.
