I work for a non-profit that is located near USC campus, and is actually a part of
USC, though we started off as an independent organization. I consider myself very
fortunate to work for a place that does good in the world and where I am treated
with respect and still earn a decent living.
I love to dance. By dance I mean dancing with someone, working together,
not line dances or stand and shake dances.
This is a video of me dancing with a friend.
Not the best lighting, but it will give you an idea of the type of dancing I like to do.
Ultimately, there are two core rules of social dancing.
1) Girl follow boy.
2) If it goes wrong, it's the guy's fault. (The price for rule one.)
So, if you are a beginner, and we are dancing, you can just relax knowing I'm
the one responsible, even if you feel you have two left feet.
(If it looks bad, it's my fault, that's the rule.)
And, in any case, that won't last long as I'm pretty darn good teacher too.
Yes, I'm more than just a dancer, but it is my most social activity.
Most of the other things I do in life tend to be is smaller groups.
I talk with a friend of mine back east every week, usually just catching
up with the little things in life and talking about a few of the better TV shows
when they are in season.
Favorite Comedians (Including, but not limited to):
Robin Williams, Richard Pryor, Chris Rock, George Carlin and Margaret Cho.
The Beatles. Jazz, Rock, and Classical, especially fast paced like Tchaikovsky.
I'll listen to most music, but I'm not too fond of manufactured music.
Strangely enough, I still like The Monkeys. (The first "insta-band".)
In the words of the late great Sam Kinison. "Rap Sucks!"
(OK, OK, I actually like some of the old school rap like "funky cold medina")
My Basic Philosophy:
Don't spend money you don't have.
Try to keep an open mind.
Hiding from the truth is stupid and dangerous.
The golden rule about treating others as you want to be treated still applies.
We are responsible for our actions, it's not enough to simply say you are
sorry, you need to make amends.
I just bought a home in Burbank. Kind of scary and exhilarating at the same time.
I think it would be nice to meet someplace casual. If we like each other, we can
always take if from there. Dinner, dancing and the like.
If you want to meet me in the real world so we don't have to meet "online" you could always
go down to Lindy Groove in Pasadena on Thursday nights. I'm there almost every week. :-)
