An awesome place I've visited:
Chester County Books and Music
My perfect Sunday:
Pretty laid back, relaxing, and serendipitous (open to ideas)...
The movie I've watched the most times:
Gimme Shelter - The Rolling Stones
My life history in 5 sentences or fewer:
Stu O'Connor was born in a cross-fire hurricane and howled at his ma in the driving rain. He was, however, able to overcome these adverse circumstances to earn an undergrad degree at West Chester University and a graduate degree from Gratz College in northeast Philadelphia. He currently teaches high school English and plays loud roadhouse rock, blues, and white-boy funk music in a band improbably named The Fabulous Taco Brothers. He also writes poetry and consults with Fortune 500 companies regarding their Emergency Zombie Outbreak Preparedness Plans. His one true aim in life is to get a cameo appearance as a zombie extra in a zombie film, preferably produced by George Romero. He has also failed miserably in his attempts to achieve a Dylanesque cultural gravitas by playing acoustic guitar, but most people think he’s OK, anyway…
My first concert / My dream concert:
First concert was the Stones '72 Exile on Main St. Tour. One of the best concerts I've ever seen: Al Green, Allman Brothers, Kuf Knotz, Traffic, Bob Dylan, etc.
Obscure knowledge I possess:
Rock n' roll history, as well as a fair amount of 20th century American music history - but rest assured, I'm not a know-it-all!
I have a weakness for guys/girls who:
The eyes have it, followed closely by a great smile...
For me, a first date no-no is:
Nervousness - relax and be who you are - if we click, great; if we don't, then we can acknowledge it and move on...
What I would bring to show and tell:
A story you should remind me to tell you on our first date:
Any of a number of drinking or music stories...
I secretly want to be:
I like who and what I am - it took me all of my life to get here, so I don't need to be anyone else...
I want to be with someone who wants to be:
reasonable, realistic, and able to communicate effectively.
An infatuation of mine:
If I won the lottery and quit my job, I would:
Write poetry and music (and maybe complete that idea for a novel) and play out a lot more...
One thing my mother would want you to know about me:
She would say I'm weird (whatever that means). But then, she simply didn't know me well at all - she could broadcast, but she couldn't receive...
I want to come home to:
Home, of course.
