I enjoy going out dancing to live bands (That 80's Band, Metal Studz, Vote 4 Pedro, SLAM Band, Platinum Rock Legends and other not-so-well-known local bands) or a DJ on the weekends. Having dinner and a movie at home is good too. I also enjoy Cardinals games, Blues Hockey, the art museum, zoo, live theater, and the occasional Symphony concert.
I have a 7 year old son, who lives with his mother. I have him a few nights a week but rarely on the weekends. If you have kids the same age I like to take my son to play with other kids.
So what do I have to offer you? I enjoy great conversations about anything and everything, though I can be opinionated about certain subjects I would love to hear your side. I've been told I have a good sense of humor and really understand women.
I do have a typical office job. I am on the product management team at the leader in undercar service equipment. (How's that for stereotypical corporate speak?) It is never the same day twice and I do get to travel some. I never thought I would enjoy a office job, but I do.
I also work weddings as a DJ or cinematographer. I DJ more than I shoot, but I really enjoy both.
I don't read much, but these two are the latest ones.
Sex at Dawn, Opening Up
This ranges from dramedies to documentaries. I prefer indie stuff but there are some mainstream movies that I like. I don't think there is a Pixar film I haven't liked, yet.
Here is a short list of indie films and documentaries I have enjoyed:
Shortbus, You, Me, and Everyone We Know, The Boys and Girls Guide to Getting Down (very funny), The Education of Shelby Knox, Party Monster: The Shockumentary
My music tastes are mainly rock to pop to country, there isn't much that's not on my iPhone. I love to dance to hip/hop and good remixes of older songs, but can dance to just about anything. I can also very poorly do a few country line dances and swing dance.
I am a self-admitted picky eater. I am working on expanding my horizons. Maybe you can get me to try something new. I do love Italian, American, and some Mexican and Chineese.
2. My friends.
3. My family.
4. My sense of humor.
5. My analytical brain.
6. My Mac. I would rather go without a computer than use a Windows computer.
What will I be doing this weekend?
Will people actually start marrying toasters once same-sex couples can marry?
Are monogamous relationships realistic? Just look at the famous people who can't keep their pants on; Tiger Woods, Mark Sanford, Meg Ryan, David Letterman, Elizabeth Taylor, Michael Jordan, Bill Clinton, Princess Diana, James Cameron, John F. Kennedy, John McCain, Rudy Giuliani, Kate Hudson. Hopefully people will realize that humans are not meant to me monogamous. For more proof read Sex at Dawn, it explains it all very well.
Is it Friday yet?
When I am not DJing I am out with friends at a local bar or club (usually Bottleneck Blues Bar, the Piano Bar at Harrah's, Trainwreck, or Helen Fitzgerald's), or checking out other local indie bands at places like 2720 Cherokee.
I also enjoy a more laid back night at a hooka bar in The Loop. I'm always looking to try new things, so feel free to suggest something.
