Turnip for what?!?
Being in my mid-thirties, I realize that there are so many things that I have not experienced in life. Not only do I want to travel to new places and share new experiences with a special someone, I would like to bring each other up to speed for a balance of LAUGHTER, LOVE, FRIENDSHIP, TRUST, CREATIVITY, and, HAPPINESS.
I'm still single because I'm picky. I'm beginning to think that I need to move out of Michigan in order to find a soul-mate/swole-mate with a similar mindset that is NOT a cat owner. (Achoo).
My goal for 2015 is to get into the best physical shape of my life and get at least one full sleeve tattoo. Veganism + weights + cardio = smiles and energy for days. I'm not drinking any alcohol in 2015 to accelerate this goal.
I've seen some of my late family members suffer the effects of poor lifestyle choices, being sedentary, and eating foods loaded in sugar, fat, and sodium. I'M NOT GOING OUT LIKE THAT!!!
That being said. I'm looking for a partner that puts conscious thought into what foods they put into their body, stays active, and lifts weights.
I'm NOT on a diet. I'm following a healthy LIFESTYLE damn it!
If you are not willing to do so than MOVE THE EFF ON.
What I’m doing with my life
My main hobbies at this time are vegan cooking, daily exercise, and playing in my band. Aka: Vegan food pron production, getting my swell on, and getting my funk on.
Solid job, shelter and transportation. In dire need of creative outlets/stimuli, synergy, and romanticism. Traveling, photography, music, dancing, photoshoping, you name it. Let's have some creative fun!
The majority of my friends think I'm crazy for eating vegan style and cooking almost every day of the week.
If you have the equipment to make tempeh, (and do so on a regular basis), I may just ask for your hand in marriage. (You're laughing? I'm not laughing).
Going to SXSW has been on my bucket list for some time now. Hopefully I'll be able to plan out said vacation with my future lover in the next year or two.
I’m really good at
Going though multiple weekly dishwasher loads because I cook too damn much. Discovering aged aural funkiness, interjecting cheesiness into conversation, being a beer snob, running fast marathons with my fingers on some bass guitar strings. creating impromptu photoshopped/funny/vintage looking/ mod podge wall art.
The first things people usually notice about me
Beard, smile, eyes, one of my many pairs of sexy specs, cheesy sence of humor.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I'll admit that I prefer nonfiction over fiction as far as books go. I do tend to read lots of technology/scientific articles when time allows. I'm currently reading books about entrepreneurship, zymurgy, craft beers, gardening, aquaponic gardening, and starting up a food truck.
I don't get out to a movie theater as much as I'd like to. Absolutely 3 XBMC, Amazon Prime video and Netflix.
Portlandia is hilarious. BBC's Top Gear. Peep Show. Online fitness/workout vids so I can add new routines/exercises to my workouts.
I'm completely biased when it comes to my musical tastes from being a bass guitar player. Anything that makes me shake my moneymaker, (aka tail feather), sing out loud, or play an air instrument. I'm a sucka for rare funk/soul grooves, blaxploitation soundtracks, and dirty/gritty electronic basslines. Vintage studio room reverb, spring delay, tape echo, and guitar fuzz make my extremities want to move around. I'll truly listen to anything, but hate overproduced corporate-made music.
FYI, I just bought a tube spring drum after watching some You+Me studio recording behind the scenes footage. It's eerie awesome to play with. :)
Detroit radio blows IMO, except for WDET. I'm a fan of the Sound Check, Radio Lab, and Modern Music programs.
Electronica, Dub, Funk, Soul, Down tempo, Afrobeat, Surf, garage... THE LIST GOES ON AND ON...
I just may be grooving out to the new Budos Band album as you're reading my profile.
Strong black coffee with a side of coffee.
The six things I could never do without
Earth, fire, wind, water, heart, and music. DEFINITELY music. (Music is way cooler than Captain Planet's green mullet anyways).
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Why the majority of sheeple out there are taking things for granted and living their lives on autopilot. Why corporate funded nonprofit organizations will not admit to the FACT that the meat and dairy industries are the major contributors to producing greenhouse gases and creating climate change, (aka destroying our planet). What new vegtastic recipe can I cook up today. Why people continue to eat $hit food and choose sedentary lifestyles. What place I would like to travel to on vacation. What I can do to expand my backyard garden next year. How I could retire, become self sufficient, and life off the grid during my golden years.
On a typical Friday night I am
Cooking, working out, sweating in my steam room post-workout, watching a good documentary, scanning/photoshopping old 35mm photo negatives, wishing I was out somewhere enjoying laughter with good company, or having my fingers run a 5K on some bass guitar stings during a jam session with the bandmates.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I have a Chaka Khan doorbell chime.
You should message me if
You want to attempt to bring tears to each other's eyes via laughter.
You are actually looking for a relationship or friendship, (NOT just a hook up).
You can teach me some new skills. (I dig chicks with skills).
Can play an instrument.
Wear sexy specs like a champ.
Know how to drive a manual.
Enjoy watching scary horror/suspense movies.
Love taking photographs and videographs, (and would like to go out on a photo outing date).
Curse like a sailor.
Can cook up a mean vegan dish.
You know that as a woman lifting weights will not make you look like Ahnold because of your physiological lack of testosterone.
You are looking for a swolemate.
You are dedicated to setting up a space/time oasis in which we can become kindred spirits.
If any of those criteria describe you then I think you should lettuce turnip the beet.
