About me

Gender MALE
Occupation Shiftless dreamer.
Location Chicago, Illinois, United States
Introduction I am a thirty-something with stuff to say. Sometimes I'll even type it out.
Interests Biking, hockey, football, baseball, softball, movies, music, sex, beer, Guinness, beer, the finest single-malt scotch whiskey(there can be only one, highlander!), bowling, darts, pool, pinball, board games, and poker. The people who impress me are the ones who tell me a long, rambling story that ends with "and that's how I got [fill in the blank] tattoed on my ass."
Favorite Movies All-time favorite: Dr. Strangelove, Or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb. Others: Airplane!, M*A*S*H, Requiem for a Dream, The Snapper, Trainspotting, War Games, This is Spinal Tap, Highlander, Blade Runner, Young Frankenstein, Apocalypse Now, Three Amigos, Yellow Submarine, Office Space, Baseketball, The Shining, Attack of the Killer Tomatoes, Blazing Saddles, Dogma, Pretty in Pink, Casablanca, Slap Shot, Shallow Grave, Say Anything, Resevoir Dogs, the Time Machine(original), Tron, Chasing Amy, The Serpent and the Rainbow, Star Wars and Star Trek... the list goes on and on.
Favorite Music Nothing and everything at the same time. I am a snob. I do like Johnny Cash, the Beatles, the Clash, Frank Zappa, Smog, Soul Coughing, Walt Mink, Warren Zevon, TMBG, the Pogues, Joe Strummer and the Mescaleros, Liz Phair, Great Big Sea, Primus, Beastie Boys, the Ramones, Beck, Dead Kennedys, Morphine, Ween, Matthew Sweet, Dead Milkmen, Sly and the Family Stone, Mozart, the Police, Aerosmith, Turin Brakes, Roger Miller, Mike Doughty, Dressy Bessy, Terminal Bliss, Teegan and Sarah, Hank Williams(SENIOR), Public Enemy... The list goes on and on, and gets weirder and weirder.
Favorite Books I read an absurd amount of Kurt Vonnegut books, frequently reading each one several times. My all time favorite is Slapstick. I read Douglas Adams the same way. I tend to like things that are in English, but that hasn't stopped me from trying other things as well.
