The thing that interests me MOST about Cafe de la Culture is the idea of a New Rennaissance. I have often wondered if we are or if I can somehow bring about a new Musical Rennaissance, and I think in many ways that I am onto a lot of very new, groundbreaking ideas to change rock music art, which I will explain in due time. I have always been an eccentric, and this group seems like a cup of tea. None of my friends would do it, and that seems like enough reason to me :) I am very interested in culture and philosophy which inspires me to think about things. I have an adventurous and curious soul and mind. I love to engage in playful, friendly debate where all is love and no one becomes upset. Thinking is also one of my all-time favorite things to do. Ever since I was a child I am able to grasp a subject and 'grok' it for hours, as Mark from Stranger from a Strange Land says :) By the way, if you haven't read that book, really, do! It's spectacular!
My interests are.. music, poetry, chaos and complexity, beauty, fashion, I like image- I love women; my favorite color is G for green! Those are important things to me. I love the weather anytime, I love smells! I am an abstinent from all mind altering substances except for coffee or tea, I don't smoke! I'm very relaxed but I can become very enthusiastic! I like to engage my mind a lot, that's why I love music. Music engages everything: passion, soul, intellect, cleverness- anything! Music can easily exceed normal expression, it becomes a portrait of your soul on the canvass of time itself. I sculpt time! I work for myself. I have risen to the top of the food chain of blue collar workers, from labor to sales to project manager, so my work ethic can be accounted for, but I have bigger goals than any of that. I teach guitar, and I entertain, and I sell products, like CDs. I went to Regis Jesuit High School, which is a Catholic High School. I believe in God and other things.
I'd like to network. I'd like to find like-minded individuals to converse with on a cerebral level- I find that very enjoyable. I would like to form a mastermind alliance. I would like to engage in many win-win endeavors with fellow artists and young professionals. I'd like to change the paradigms of the peer group aspect of my life. I'd like to have a good time and relax from normal work and work on creative problem solving and the vast conundrums which excite me most in the world. I need to discuss outside opinions as strong and as intelligent as mine. It puts a fire in your step and a gleam in your eye. I'd like to meet the people who have the wonderful gall to call their meeting a new renaissance!! I'd like to eat out at dimly lit and brooding restaurants whilst engaging in cerebral discourse, and I'd like to hear what international men and women of culture have to say about things like the weather and favorite colors and sculptures made out of time haha.
I bring a massive positive attitude, polite stimulating debate, smiling and laughing and outrageous stories if you want them. I bring uniqueness and style and bravery, adventurousness, and steadfast loyalty. I bring constantly improving my strengths and weaknesses, and constantly working to erase my faults. I bring mindfulness and a huge desire to learn. I bring fearlessness and music and the gift of perception. I see problems that need fixing, and I take the initiative to do so. I do WAY MORE than anyone could even expect of me. I go way above and beyond anything, I don't leave a stone unturned, I don't waste time, I bring massive scope and vision to everything that I do. I know how to be patient and when to take the initiative, and when to just have fun. That's all, nothing more or less.
Hi, my name is Marcus. I am a skilled and eccentric musician. I have the skills and the vision, and now I have turned my eyes to the manifestation of my dreams. I guess that's just like a pretty serious way of saying that I'm a wannabe rockstar ;)
