One monkey typing Shakespeare, one post at a time

Rating position

31 July 1956
I grew up in small towns all over Southern California, which may be why I love living in a large metropolitan city so much. Lived in San Francisco for a while before moving New York, where I have now resided longer than any other place in my life.

Bearded, blue-eyed, right handed, lactose tolerant. Loving, lovable, and truly blessed to be partnered with mudcub. I embrace my bearosity although currently trying to shed a few pounds. I appreciate a good sense of humor, and think I possess one, too.

I enjoy getting together with friends for movies, musuems, meals, poker, outings, and other activities. Check out my many other likes and interests below.

I’ve produced numerous S/M at the Movies films clips programs which have been shown to organizations and at film festivals, museums, and special events internationally. Contact me at thornyc@livejournal.com for more information.

And yes, it’s my real name.

Notice as per LJ standards:
You must be this open-minded to read this Journal. This is a Journal of an adult gay male, and as such includes images and discussions of a frank (adult) nature. You may even see a penis or two. If you are under 18, you should read this and other adult-gay-male journals to learn about people and their lives that are different from yours, and ask your parents, teachers, and religious leaders why they're so afraid that you do so.
