Here goes...I speak with a soft drawl and am worried that my accent will someday disappear completely.
I grew up in rural Oklahoma but have lived in many cities such as London, New York, Seattle [twice!] and now Los Angeles.
I love new cities and new places.
Three things I plan on doing in 2013: learn to use a letterpress, finish a novel, go to Paris.

I like opinions.
I love to hear someone laugh.
I love to tell stories and will embellish them just enough to hear that laughter.
I am a no-holds barred romantic.

I affix stamps onto said letters and drop them into a mailbox.
I'm a mix of old-fashioned and modern.

I love my job.
I have been told I'm kind of quirky.
I have never been married but I've been very close.
I think the word "wife" is about the sexiest word I could ever utter.
If I could see one band play it would have to be Depeche Mode circa 1981, or The Smiths circa 1986, or Beach Boys in 1966, or Electric Light Orchestra circa 1977, or Blondie circa 1979, or Kraftwerk circa 1978 in Berlin, or....this could go on all night long, I am extremely passionate about music.
I will never own an e-reader!
I'm am a creative person who is always plotting and planning a project, or three, or six.
I am serious about photography--one of my favorite possessions is a Hasselblad camera. Oh, how I love that camera!
I don't own a digital camera and am still a luddite when it comes to photography.
I own thousands of records.
I am still surprised every time I look up and see a palm tree on my street, or see the Hollywood sign, or am stuck in gridlock.
I am turning my work commute into an art project.
I love to find new locals only places.
I love to be surprised.
I am a freelance movie programmer for an independent theatre back home and I do this for nothing but love.
I am not a phony.
I like people who stand up for what they believe in.

I like complex people.
I have a good heart.
I like people who believe in something. Anything.

I love to learn things and enjoy becoming obsessed by something new.
I tend to get nostalgic and sad for old buildings that are falling into disrepair.
I am a quality person who likes to have quality people in my life.
I'm fairly new to Los Angeles and am looking for new friends to explore the city.
Looking for a comrade.
