drinking Yuengling and watching Spaced

So yeah, I know it’s after midnight, but I promised to update this every day.  I’m updating it now.  So suck it.  I was really bummed this girl didn’t write me back, because I really, really wanted to do unspeakable things to her.  She said she was working on a film about punk rock and was into a lot of cool shit.  Oh well, she’s not the first hot girl to ignore me.  But seriously, best subject line ever???

(NOTE) I actually sent this young lady TWO messages, because she had the hottest photos by far of any seemingly intelligent woman on this damn site.  I’m guessing that she didn’t need the internet’s help to get laid or land a free meal.  Or, maybe she just wasn’t into that.  Here they are…

Hi, how are you?

I’m really intrigued to hear about the film you’re working on, especially considering the books and movies you listed in your favorites. There aren’t very many people I’ve met who list “Psychotic Reactions & Carburetor Dung” amongst their favorite books. Have you read “Mainlines, Blood Feasts & Bad Taste” yet? I think I need to re-read both books because it’s been so long since I’ve read them. I’m currently reading “The Peculiar Memories Of Thomas Penman” by Bruce Robinson. I am really liking it. I had started reading it years ago, but for some reason, never finished. I’ve started reading “Ulysses” twice in the last two years and will no doubt try again soon.

And I’m really psyched that you listed Art Brut amongst your fave bands. They are so incredibly good! I saw them play with the Hold Steady and it was such a great show because both bands are just happy to play music for people. You can tell they love what they do.

Wow, I promised myself I was going to write something short here, but that’s not really the case, so I’m going to wrap this up. I’ll just say that if you are at all interested in discussing these things and more, drop me a line and maybe we can meet up for drinks and conversation.

take care,

Hi there,
I figured I would give it a go and see if you might be interested in talking. I’m pretty much about to give up and meeting people online (which I only tried because I’m crap at chatting up total strangers in person). My profile says most of what you need to know about me, and if you think you might be into that (or drinking 22 oz Yuenglings and watching Spaced), message me back. I think you’re into some cool stuff and sound pretty interesting. I’m sorry if this message is a bit forward or uninteresting, but I used to write really detailed letters and found it a waste of time. In person, however, I am pretty verbose and quite charming, i assure you.

hope to talk to you soon,

[this is where the OkCupid “Icebreakers” dealy starts coloring outside the lines (though ever so slightly).  “I think you both like sushi, vegetarian, music, no country for old men, and the pixies.” Oh, so very close!]
