WM, 50, 6'5", 265 lbs, Father of one. Engaged to the Raven-Haired Queen of the "G" Dimension; Snarky as hell, Friendly when you get to know me, even Snarkier if you REALLY get to know me (but by then, of course, it'll be far too late);

Volunteer DJ, In the classic definition of the term. Not a club emcee/turntable maestro or some weekender hauling their soundsystem around to wedding receptions or Sweet 16 bashes, but a music-obsessed goober that drags himself into a tiny, stuffy room once a week and broadcasts boatloads of brain-rattlin' boleros, bug-eyed boogies, beelzebubbian blues and basso-profundo be-bops in the sincere hope that some half-baked, goggleboxed do-gooder out there, upon exposure to this delirious racket, will get (at least) a peenie little cheap thrill in their ear-hole - but maybe, just maybe, (If yer LUCKY) the classic "Where-Has-This-Band-Been-All-My-Life-?" epiphinal kick in the head; So check it out if you want yer Sunday night dinner hour ruined sometime. (www.wqna.org, 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm CST, ya chickens).

Ok, what's next...Oh Yeah - Freaky-Deaky Chef (Did you know that you can put hot peppers in almost ANYTHING? And that you SHOULD? Yessireebob.), Lover of Wise-Ass T-Shirts (T-Shirt Hell is the Shit), Self-Styled Musical Elitist/Know-It-All Snob (Same goes for movies/DVD's), Detester of Keanu Reeves (Self-Explanatory), Twenty-Year-Plus State Employee (It's a Feudalist System, except instead of a few square yards of crappy, stone-choked tillage, we receive just enough money to survive and feed some taxes back into the local economy), omnivorous Culture Vulture. Actively trying to figure out how to get away with the on-air verbatim reciting of the works of Doktor Hunter S. Thompson......
