I recently moved to California from Pennsylvania. I am not into watching professional sports, but I can do hockey games. I do enjoy reading books on history, economics, political philosophy, the esoteric and strange. My all time favorite genre has to be classic science fiction, many copies of Weird Tales I do adore. All of my books are in storage since I arrived in CA, thankfully my e-book reader is stuffed to the gills. I would like to make some new friends and possibly something more. I am a laid back kind of guy. You'll find that I am intelligent, respectful, amorous, open minded, and willing to try new things.
To me free thinkers are rare in this day and age. The extremely high levels of indoctrination and social conditioning ingrained into our culture can make it difficult for many to break the mold. So if you are a free thinking woman, all the better. We shall have many things to discuss while we ponder the intricacies of life, the universe and everything. Of course, we all know that the ultimate answer to the ultimate question is 42. If I had to align myself politically I would be more in the area of not beholding myself to any rulers or overlords.
Life is about perspective, I try to maintain a broad view while remaining optimistic about the future in general. Even though I might come across some information or fact that is disturbing in the grand scheme, I do not allow this to keep me down or prevent me from doing what I set out to do for my own individual satisfaction, want or need. I celebrate individualism and revere those that embrace their inner creative genius.
I really like the Mother Hips, they are a great California band and I finally got to see them live recently. Looking forward to seeing them again and again and again. Frank Zappa, Steve Kimock, the Jacob Fred Jazz Odyssey, the Grateful Dead, jazz, blues, classic blues, rock, classic rock, Primus, anything with Les Claypool, moe., Garaj Mahal, Kyuss! The list is long, no reason to list them all out here. Just not too big into rap or pop music. Live music is great, the more intimate the setting, the better. I am not usually a fan of stadium shows or ginormous festivals, but if the line up is agreeable I will make an exception.
I am a dog lover, as you can see I put up a few pics of my dogs Nanook and Pamiiruq. It is a plus if you are into caring for animals.
I also try to maintain healthy eating habits to avoid gluten and grains as much as possible. I pretty much prepare all of the food I eat, and most of the food has either no ingredient label, or minimal collected ingredients. Nothing processed, nothing augmented or tainted in any way. I have a chile pepper fetish, do you likey spicy?!?
I can do e-mail to initially break the ice with someone but would like to at least move into phone conversation to see if there is any further interest. After that we can arrange to (gasp!) meet in person. I am a coffee snob, you have been warned. I enjoy a great cup of coffee, strong, low acid, with complex flavors that tickle the palette.
