Good folks, raised a gentlemen. Pretty close with them. * editors note - thankfully they are not Trump supporters. It's be tough watching friends having issues with their rents of politics this year.....
Just a kid from Queens. Born raised in NY, work in film tv. Own and operate a lighting rental company, which means I own a couple of trucks and too much equipment, or it owns me... haven't figured out which way it is yet. I also work on set as a lighting monkey.
Enjoy staying creative and working on personal projects. I'm pretty much a failed filmmaker, but I'm okay with that. Produced a couple of movies and music videos. Recently took a play to Edinburgh for the Fringe fest.
I've recently been described as true american hero, based on the reality that I'm single guy raising two black cats in these crazy times.
I like the kind of bars where dreams go to die. Usually that just means its dark, maybe a little dank, has a good jukebox, and preferably a pool table.
Just bought my idea of a dream house. It's right in the middle of nice neighborhood in Queens, tree lined streets, great backyard, fireplace, feels like it could be any nice suburb in the country. Difference is, its a 15 minute walk to subway or 15 minute drive to get into manhattan. Move in next year. Very excited.
Got no problem with the online thing, I've had a long and very good relationship from one of these sites. I'm on here looking for that again. I love running around and having a good time, I want someone to do that with. :)
TV; BSG, Its Always Sunny, Breaking Bad, were all excellent shows. Really into The Flash right now, lot of fun. Always down for some Law Order reruns.
Movies, definitely something I'm dork about. Blade Runner, Wild Bunch, Pee Wee's Big Adventure, Big Lewboski, Manhunter, Evil Dead 2, Tinker Tailor Solider Spy, Serenity, Glen Garry. Tarantino, Paul Thomas Anderson, Wes Anderson. I go to a lot of screenings of older films, especially if I haven't seen a print of it.
Books; read all things Neil Gaiman, Alan Moore, Elmore Leonard, Frank Miller, Raymond Chandler, Douglas Adams, unfortunately I've read all of them. big fan of nonfiction. Lately I've been consuming Stephen Kings Dark Tower series.
Love to cook, will try anything. I've had some really good lessons from little old ladies in moo moos. Got a well used BBQ and a turkey deep fryer out back. Like new restaurants, it takes a lot to get me to go to the same place twice... unless its walking distance.
Sports; UFC, baseball, football. I'm a Mets fan, which I pretty much regret every day. Setup a tv on the back porch because baseball was meant to be watched outside. If there is a big fight in a city I haven't been to or if its in Vegas during winter, chances are I'll be there and make a weekend trip out of it.
