About me

Gender Male
Location San Francisco, CA, United States
Introduction Everyday is a new day. No matter how down I get today, there is always a new beginning tomorrow. What is impossible today will be possible tomorrow. I love music. I love to listen, and I love to create. Books are also a passion. Plus, I love to cook and eat, and I enjoy wine and scotch. I will probably share a recipe from time to time, if I can remember the measurements. I like improvising, both music and cooking. I love long, rambling walks with no destination in mind.
Favorite Movies I don't watch a lot of movies generally, and there are many movies I have not seen (often to the surprise of others. Forest Gump for example? I still have no desire to see it). Movies I do love include Singin' In the Rain, Holiday Inn, Casablanca, Empire Stikes Back, Inglorious Basterds, Bandits (Germany, 1997ish?), Rhythm on the River, A Night at the Opera, Run, Lola, Run, The Godfather, Monty Python and the Holy Grail, Wings of Desire, Young Frankenstein

As I said above, I love music.
