I empathize with social justice causes, yet find myself searching for encouragement to resist compassion fatigue.
Back in junior high Latin class, they taught us the phrase "sui generis" referring to an unique thing -"of its' own kind". I grew into being sui generis compared to other gentlemen you might run into either online or in real life ( as we all hope one or several of these online communications will evolve into...).

That's random ladies' worldwide opinion based on a few pictures (I'm a photographer, so I know what side of the viewfinder I actually belong on ) Worldwide is good, but local enough to DC to on the spur of the moment call and go have pizza or drinks without worrying if it's supposed to be the be all to end all is more what 54, tested negative for STIs, divorced and hoping for companionable lady company is about.

Music: The short list would run from ABC to ZZ Top. Bands I've seen live include the Who, the Rolling Stones,Alice Cooper, David Lee Roth, Sammy Hagar, Van Halen, Blondie, Jethro Tull, Pearl Jam,Kansas, Letters to Cleo, Timbuk 3, Garbage , Heart , Robert Palmer ( rest in peace with your sailing shoes on).

Movies: Star Wars would have been my favorite at 15, and the sequels were ok - saw each of them opening weekend in their respective years of release.
Currently - Siesta http://youtu.be/XngsdplfW08 (Ellen Barkin, where have you gone? I always wanted to be Gabriel Byrne after seeing that)Magnolia, Eyes Wide Shut, Body Heat, The Postman always Rings twice ( the 40's version, though Jessica Lange was very sexy in the '80s version), for starters...
