My self-summary
What to say, what to say…

I have no clue why I'm even trying this again. So strange to peruse your pictures, read whatever you wrote, then decide to click on you or not. Does it really work this way now? If so, I think I need to catch the train back to "The Way It Used To Be-ville".

That aside, I'm fairly simple: no drama, and very little baggage (that I'm about to just leave in someone's mailbox for them to deal with haha). I'm actually quite happy with my life, minus the occasional stress or whatever negative crosses my path. I've lived, I've loved, and I've learned from every experience.

I suppose my choice of careers is a deal-breaker with most…I'm a musician. I tour, I record, I produce, I do whatever I can to fulfill the dream. When home I manage a small warehouse full of stuff. Gotta make ends meet, ya know? I like to think I do it well, and it's balanced. But the music thing…I've always wanted to do it. I've put it on a shelf many times, yet always come back to it. There's no other "job" like it on the planet. I figure I'm gone about a month or two out of the year, then home. And it's always broken up….long weekends here and there. So there's that.

There's way more, of course, but I'll save that for later.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm living it! I'll save this bit for whoever actually meets me.
I’m really good at
Playing/building various instruments, cooking, being goofy, sarcasm, not being offensive to those that simply don't get "it", and being offensive to those that simply do get "it" (see what I did there?), pointing out that you probably did not see what I did there, wearing long sleeved-anything, being a long distance-dad, sudoku, vacuuming, and (apparently) misplacing hyphens. Oh!…I think I'm pretty good at giving a speech (not the first thing on my list of activities, but I guess I gotta do what I gotta do).

I think I'm good with being patient, and not jumping to conclusions.
The first things people usually notice about me
A firm handshake and impeccable style! Just kidding about that 2nd one…

I had a friend once, who said she started liking me because of the song I was playing on my computer while at work. Does that count?
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: not a big reader, except for tech/nerdy stuff.
Movies: Anything, except foreign. I have this thing against subtitles.
TV: smart shows….
Music: Rock, rock, and more rock, with everything else peppered in to taste. My go-to playlist would have ORIGINAL Sabbath, PJ, SFK, something borrowed, and something blue.
Food: No ketchup please. Or chicken livers. And I prefer Corona without the lime. Everything else welcome!
The six things I could never do without
A guitar
A well-made writing utensil
Responsible indulgence
My daughter's love
I spend a lot of time thinking about
What to make for dinner, having a positive mindset (as best I can), what the chords are to the song I just heard and loved, why my damn cat is the best alarm clock I could EVER have (true!), and my significant other….whoever and wherever she may be. And will "she" have a sack of bricks in tow? It'd be super cool if "she" did. I know womens' purses contain a myriad of crap, but really?! Bricks fit in there, too??!! Yeah. Bring it, lady. Bring it.
On a typical Friday night I am
Either at a show or sleeping. Lately, I've been quite taken with scouring the Interwebs for new music to occupy myself with. Found some great shit, and have heard some humdingers (there's 1 I found that is SO awful he's good).
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Not the most private thing, but I'm drawn to 2 things: touching a 9V battery to my tongue, and the smell of magazine pages. Both are unlike any sensation on the planet. Strange, I know…:) And I dream of Sarah McLachlan singing me to sleep. True. Yes, I spelled her name correctly haha.
You should message me if
…you're being chased by a ghost. My proton pack is charged and ready. I'll have to borrow a trap from Chevy Chase though.

…you're interested (please say something more than just a typical greeting).

…you're interesting (I'm not ADD or anything, but please have some substance…I have high expectations regarding "her", and "she" is no dullard). I'm not kidding with this one…"she" will have high expectations regarding me.

…you don't believe in the typical bullshit stereotype that all musicians are bad, and/or have no other goals. Simply rubbish, and I like to think I'm proof of that…fuck that, I know I am.

…you know that Chevy Chase wasn't in "Ghostbusters".

…you believe in "love at first sight"; meaning, you're checking this silly website to see if I've emailed back, because you just felt…something. Chances are, to "her", I'm doing the same thing now.

Thanks for reading. Now, seriously…where the hell are "you"? Dinner's getting cold, and reheating it later is never as good!
