Getting a Date

2005-06-02

Hello and welcome to my dating info page. If it's not clear I've changed my look. You can check out my old pages if you are curious what you used to look like.

What do you want to know about me?

Well for starters, I'm a video game creator. I enjoy the creative aspects of my job. Games incorporate all the disciplines of movies, music, graphic design as well as all the disciplines that take those and turn them into a a game, game design, technology, artificial intelligence. You couldn't ask for a more creative field I think.

I'm also a programmer. It has it's advantages. I can build and fix a computer. If there is a technical problem I want solved I can usually solve it. I wrote the system that runs this website for instance.

Not so vital stats
Name: Gregg
Location: Tokyo
Age: 39
Height: 5'10 (178cm)
Eye Color: Brown
Blood Type: Alien
Sign: Peace
Dogs or Cats: Dogs
Drink: Sometimes
Smoke: No way!
Religion: nope

I love eating and trying new cuisines. When I get the chance I go out with my more adventurous friends and try new restaurants. I can't imagine eating the same dish or even the same cuisine every day. Even though I look white I'm positive I can use chopsticks better than you! 😊

I'm a music lover. Before I moved to Japan I had over 900 CDs. I pretty much like stuff all over the board. For dancing I like techno but for listening everything is good. Rock, Pop, Jazz, Swing, Bossa Nova, Vocals, Oldies, Hip Hop, R&B, Lounge, Ska, you name the genre and there are probably a few songs I'm into. I also like singing but most of that occurs in the car while I'm driving and being in Tokyo I don't get to drive much. If the song matches my voice I do okay.

I love going to the movies of course. I especially like to going to opening day blockbuster movies and seeing them when you can feel the energy in the audience. I don't usually mind crowded places like Shibuya since the more people there are the more interesting things there are to see.

Taking me to a bookstore is dangerous since I will want to buy 50 books even if I'll never read them. I especially like Art books, Architecture books and Children's books. On the other hand I don't read nearly as much as I should. For novels I probably prefer SF or something with a new idea to challenge my imagination.

I like doing crafts although I don't do them often enough. Making my own art, photography, or even clothing. You might even consider this website a craft as well.

I'm not really into sports, both doing and watching. I would like to do more. I'd like to try snowboarding more and some tennis but I need a partner. I'd also like to try surfing. Swimming is always fun as I grew up swimming since I was like 3yrs old.

I'm looking for someone who is first and foremost a fun person to be with. Someone who says "yes" to most suggestions about what to do. I'm also looking for someone that can be my best friend. My best guess is that person should have some similar interests. Movies and music are not similar interests, everybody enjoys those. I'm guessing that is someone that enjoys all the things a computer allows them to do and maybe enjoys a video games once in a while. That doesn't mean you should be a "geek" but it means that if you find computers boring or you think video games are a waste of time then we are clearly not a match.

I'm also looking for someone that is into the American ideal of a relationship which is that once you become a "couple" for the most part you act as a couple. Because you are best friends you want to do not all but most things together as a couple. I only bring that up because the Japanese ideal seems to be you sleep together a few times a week but you play with your friends separately.  I'm not looking for that kind of relationship.

You should also be smart, believe in yourself and preferably believe that you can do anything you set your mind to.

Other than that I'm pretty easy going.😃

Eating Silkworms

2004-11-23

Today I ate Silkworm Pupus. My Korean friend, Youngmi, told me she eats them regularly in Korea and she gave me some to try when she visited a week ago. They actually were not that bad. If they were spiced up and / or put in another food I could probably deal with them. Straight of the can and slightly heated, per her instructions, they were, well, like silkworm pupas.

ここに来てようこそ!これはグレッグマンのデートのホームページだ。読めば僕のような方が欲しがるのがいいな。もっと知りたかったら読んで続いてね。

ところで、僕は35才のアメリカ人だ。今東京に住んでいるけど元々アメリカのロスから来た。ロスのディズニーランドから5k位に育っていたから何回ディズニーランドに行ったか分からない。その上に先の10年の5年にはディズニーランド一年のパス-を持っていた。持っていたときほとんど毎週の日曜日の夜にディズニーランドで友達に会って、一緒に食事をしながら人々を見た。

アメリカ人と言えばどんなような人を想像するの?青目の白人だか?アメリカ人は色々な国々から来たでしょう。僕はハワイ系、タヒチ系、サモア系、中国系、イギリス系、ポルトガル系、アイルランド系、オランダ系のアメリカ人だ。僕の家族の歴史がふくざつだよね。元々金髪だったが10才の時ぐらい茶色になって来た。

僕の特別の特徴の一つは引っ越したことがいっぱいあるよ。19歳から今までもう20回以上引っ越したことがある。それは一年に1回以上でしょう。カリフォル二アのロス、ペンシルベニア州のフィラデルフィア、メリーランド州のバルチモール、メリーランド州のカッキズビール、カリフォルニア州のサンフランシスコ、そして今日本の東京に住んでいる。いつも引っ越す希望がなかったけど、何かがあってのですく行ったんだ。もう引っ越したくなくなってきたけど自宅を見つけるまでにまだどこかに行かなくっちゃね。

キャリアについて、僕のサイトを見たら、コンピューター・ソフト開発のを分かって来ると思う。もっと詳しく説明すると僕はすごく得意なゲーム・ソフト開発をしている人だ。今まで18_プロジェクトが出来た。興味があればこのページにリストが書いてある。ゲーム・ソフトの開発すろことは大変か知っているか?ほとんど一つは1年間から2年までかかるよ。ゲーム機械の力が強ければ強くなるともっと大変になるよ。中学生、高校生の時プログラマーはソフト、映像、音、音楽、全部一人で6ヶ月で作れた。今ほとんど15人から30人はかかるよ。

でも、今は休みを取っている。休みを取っているというよりむしるサバティカルだ。先の10ヶ月(2000年10月から)日本に住んで、日本語学校に通って、フルタイムで一周に5日に一日に4時間に日本語を勉強している。前回日本に住んでいた時セガで働いていた。目的は日本語を勉強だったけど生けるために仕事が必要だった。しかし、セガで、多分日本のゲーム会社全部で、仕事は毎日朝の10時から夜の11時半までだ。その上に僕の通勤は1時間2十分だったので勉強のやる気が急になくなった。当たり前じゃないか?

セガは仕事をしながら日本語を吸い取ると思ったかな。けどアメリカでいいチャンスがあってので、アメリカに帰って、そのチャンスを取った。それで今年仕事しなくても日本語勉強できる.

いつまで日本にいるか分からないがすぐ次のすることを決めなければならない。

ところで、僕のことについてちょっと言った方がいいかも。僕はちょっと恥ずかしいがりだ。でもシャイというより、知らない人と話すのが難しいげど友達と煩くなるよ。知らない人と話す上達して頑張っているね。

好きなことは、コンピューター、テクノロジー、インターネット、ゲームだ。コンピューターとインターネットで想像が使えるでしょう。ゲーム・ソフトを開発で、ホームページを更新で、デジカメで撮った写真を編集で、普通のソフトを開発で、全部クリエーティブのことでしょう。会いたいのは同じようなクリエーティブなことを興味を持っている人だ。CGとビデオもを楽しんで作りたい。

それ以外普通のことも好きだ。色々な映画が好きだ。このページにそんなに有名じゃないが好きな映画のリストが書いてある。DVD、レザーディスク、ビデオの映画300枚ぐらいを持っている

多分いい仕事があって、恋人がいなかたのでね。買い物すいに買っちゃうことが多いい。例えば、集まったのは、CD800枚腕時計は45個ぬいぐるみは70匹、それ本がいっぱい過ぎる。

映画では想像的な映画の方がドラマよりが好きだ。僕の生活にもうドラマがある十分ので他は要らないでしょう。たまに面白いドラマがあるけど。想像的なので色々な面白いアイディアに紹介されるから興味がある。

面白いアニメも大好きだが、平均アニメは面白くないでしょう。でも面白いのは本当に面白いね。GTOとか、ワン・ピースとか、ランマ1/2とか面白くない?

腕時計は女の人の装身具みたいけど男の人が使ってもいい。ただ僕の言い訳だ。ほとんど安い方を買う。スワッチとか。

CDさ、音楽がなかったら人生が苦しくならないか?その上にいつも同じ音楽を聞くと飽きるので「Napster」を使わないさえ、たまに新しいCDを買わなくっちゃ。今スウィングとテクノが特に好きだけどカントリー以外何でもすきだよ。先買ったCD5枚は「Faye Wong」フェー・ウォン、「Brian Setzer」ブライアン・セッツァー、「Janet Jackson」ジャネット・ジャクソン、「Orbital」オービタル、「Depeche Mode」デペッシュ・モードだ。最近友達から美空ひばりの貢ぎのCDをもらった。最高面白いよ。

美味しい食べ物を食べるのは生きている理由一つじゃない?まだ食べたことがない食べ物を食べるのが大好きだ、お腹がそんなに強くないのに。今の生活で外食ばかりだ。料理を作れるが時間がかかるし、一人で無駄でしょう。東京にいるうちにできるだけ新しいレストランに行くようにしている。今学生なので安い方けどね。

後は遊園地が大好きだ。最近行ってないけどジェットコースターが大題ダイス好きだ。一番いい載ったのはロスベガスのビッグショットだ。

どんな女性を探していると聞いたらこのような女性だと思う。それに楽しくて、戯れているのが見つけたい。僕より活発がいいと思う。知的なのが必要だ。僕の一番大切な親友だ。親友と何でも一緒にやるでしょう。あまり何も一緒にやらない経験が欲しくない。そのような経験を持っているカップルが多いでしょう。いつも女は女の友達と何かしていて、男もいつも彼の友達何かをやっていて、寝ることだけ一緒にやっているので、なぜカップルになったか分かりがたい。僕の見つけたい相手は僕の親友なので、ほとんど親友と一緒に何でもやりたいし、何でもについて話したいし、一緒に何か作ったりとか、いいと思わない?

よろしければEメールを出してね。ここにクリック.

2002-01-19

You're HERE!!  Hello.  This is my "Date the Greggman" page.  Hopefully if you are reading this page you are looking for somebody like ME.  Want to know more?  Read on.

Let's see.  As I'm living in Japan you might like to know that I'm an 35 year old American from the Los Angeles area.  I grew up just 3 miles (5km) from Disneyland so I've been there more times than I can count.  In fact since about 1991 I've had a yearly pass for about 5 of those last 10 years.  I used to hook up with my friends about once a week, usually on Sunday nights for dinner and people watching.

One thing about me I move ALOT.  Since I was 19 I've moved over 20 times.  That's more than once a year.  I've lived in Los Angeles California, Prove Utah, Philadelphia Pennsylvania, Baltimore Maryland, Cockeysville Maryland, San Francisco California, and Tokyo Japan which is where I am as I write this.  I never actually planned to move at all, things just come up and off I go.  I would love to stop moving so much but until I find my "home" I guess I'll just have to go with the flow and see where I land.

As for my career, if you've looked around on this website you might be able to tell I'm a programmer.  More specifically I'm a KICK ASS VIDEO GAME programmer.  So far I've had about 18 projects.  If you are interested here's a list of some of the games I've worked on. You may not know it but games take a hell of a lot of work.  Usually 1 to 2 years per game and it's getting worse.  As the machines get more and more powerful it takes more and more work to fill them up with stuff.  When I started in junior high school and through high school one programmer could do it all in 6 months or less.  Programming, art and sounds/music.  Now it takes teams of 15 to 30 people to make one 

At the moment though I'm on break (or maybe I should call it a sabbatical).  For the last 10 months (since Oct 2000) I've been in Japan, going to Japanese school, studying Japanese fulltime 5 days a week, 4 hours a day.  Last time I lived in Japan I worked at Sega.  My reason for coming was to learn Japanese but of course I needed a job to survive.  Well, at Sega, maybe at all Japanese video game companies, they work 10am to 11:30pm EVERYDAY!.  With a 1 hour and 2 minute commute that pretty much means there's no way I was going to squeeze studying into that.

I think they thought I would just absorb it as I worked and maybe I would have but an opportunity came up to come back to the states, earn a big check and that's why I'm able to be here this year without a job and study fulltime.

At the moment I don't know how long I will be here.  Within the next few months I need to figure out where I'm going to work next.

Okay, so what can I tell you about me?  I'm I little on the shy side.  I don't think anybody would really describe me as shy but I do tend to remain quiet until I get to know somebody.  I'm working on that though.

Thinks I like: I like computers, technology, the internet and games.  Computers and the internet let me be creative whether it's creating games on the job or making my webpage or editing digital photos or making software or whatever.  I'd really like to meet somebody I can share that passion with.  I'd even like to make some CG or a video for fun.

Outside of that I like lots of the usual.  I like almost all kinds of movies.  Here's a list of some of the slightly less known ones.  I have probably about 300 movies in the form of DVDs, Laserdics and Videos.

I think that comes from having a good job and no girlfriend.  I tend to spend lots of money on collecting stuff.  Maybe collecting is not the right word but I have 800 CDs, 45 watches, 70 stuffed animals, and too many books.

I prefer creative stuff to dramas.  I already have enough drama in my life that I don't usually need more from TV or Movies.  Sometimes they can be interesting though.  Creative stuff though is exciting because I get introduced to new ideas.

I like anime when it's good which I suppose on average is not that often but when it's good it's REALLY GOOD.

Watches to me are like jewelry for men.  At least that seems like a good excuse to me.  I generally only get cheaper ones like Swatch or Fossils so I'm not going crazy.

CDs, well, life would pretty much suck ass without music and I get tired of listening to the same thing over and over so unless I'm going to steal music with Napster (something I think is wrong) then I have to buy a new CD now and then.  Right now I especially like Swing and Techno but I can get into pretty much anything except maybe Country. 🤢  The last 5 CDs I bought were Faye Wong, Brian Setzer, Janet Jackson, Orbital and Depeche Mode.  One of my friends just gave me a CD which is a collection of tributes to a famous Enka singer.  It's pretty cool.

I think eating is one of the best reasons for living.  Eating good food and trying new things.  I'll eat almost anything at least once even though I think I have a weak stomach sometimes.  I pretty much go out to eat for nearly every meal at the moment but not that I go to fancy places.  Here in Japan, as best I can I try to go to a new place everyday for lunch though I'm keeping it on the cheap side.

I also like thrill rides. Though I haven't gone out of my way to ride any recently I love riding roller coasters and going to amusement parks.

I'm looking for someone around my age plus or minus a few years.  Someone that is playful and fun.  Preferable someone who is at least slightly more outgoing than me.  Someone who is intelligent is extremely important. I'm looking for someone to be my best friend.  Best friends do most things together.  I bring this up because some couples seem to live mostly separate lives.  They hang out with separate friends.  Go on separate vacations.  I don't actually know why they consider themselves couples but anyway that's not what I'm looking for.  I'm not saying I want to do everything together but generally best friends just want to do stuff together.  Best friends also talk about everything, share everything, work on stuff together.  Think of all the things you've done with your previous best friends.

Hope to hear from you.  Write me at here.

You wanted to know more about me?  Here you go...

I'm a little shy at first but once I get to know somebody I open up.  My friends would not consider me shy at all and I'm definitely not shy at work.

I can be extremely romantic when I'm in love and I'm romantic at heart.  I still want that wonderful relationship with somebody I really connect with on all levels.

I can be very playful and very crazy when I'm comfortable with somebody.  As long as you're not embarrassed neither am I.

I come across as the kind of guy your mom would love.  That doesn't mean there aren't things about me your mother would rather not know but you'll have to find that kind of stuff out yourself instead of here because I don't want my mom to know those things either.  In other words I'm not a "goodie two shoes" (Where the heck did that expression come from?)

My previous girlfriends thought I was pretty wonderful.  What more do you want? (1)

If it's not clear from my website I'm a video game programmer.  That doesn't mean I'm a "nerd" in the bad senses.  Only in the good ones.  I'm very smart (not wise just smart)  I know computers inside and out which means I'm always asked to help my friends and family with theirs.  It also means I'm doing pretty well generally.  I have yet to have to look for a job as they always come to me.  I'm pretty lucky in that way though I've earned it through alot (2) of hard work.

I give good conversation once I open up.  I, possibly unfortunately, have an opinion on almost everything.  I have some knowledge about quite a few things.  I'm also quick to learn most new stuff so I'll catch on quickly.

I'm very open emotionally in the sense that I'll tell you what I'm thinking.  If I think I need to talk about something I will.  I do tend to over analyze things though.  I'm working on that. 

I'm also working on getting out more.  Right now I don't have an activity partner.  One friend had a family emergency and the other is for all intents and purposes engaged.  There are quite a few things I'd like to do from rollerblading to tennis to swimming.  Parties, dinning,  movies,  plays, museums.  I love trying new restaurants.

I'm 35 (or will be real soon) and I am looking for a long term relationship.  I don't want to settle for something that's not right but I am very seriously wanting to meet that wonderful person that I can share a wonderful life with.

I'm one who believes common interests are very important.  I'm not looking for a clone but on the other hand if we have nothing in common what will we do together or talk about?  I of course like technology and video games.  I'm not crazy about video games though.  I've probably spent less then 10 hours this month playing anything.  I love opening night movies.  I love dogs (sorry but a few years ago I became allergic to cats)  I love the ocean.  I love learning and speaking Japanese.  I love animation, animation festivals, cartoon network, anime.  I love the Discovery Channel and TLC.  Some Fox News, CNN and a little MTV, VH1.  I'm not a big sitcom person though I have gotten hooked in the past.  I love creating things.  Games, programs, webpages, crafts, food, photos.

I've read about some dating services like "Just Coffee" or "Speed Dating" where the idea is that you can very quickly know if you want to see somebody again.  I believe that is true.  On the other hand I don't think it's true that you can know if somebody is going to be a good match quickly.  I can tell you in my previous relationships I generally knew the person a few months before we really started hitting it off.  I think that means I prefer to start as friends.

I really need to take some new pictures.  These are not good ones.  Trust me.

1) I'm not somebody that thinks you shouldn't talk about past relationships.  Those relationships helped make me me.  Many of my first or best experiences happened in those relationships and so they will come up.  I expect the same is true for you too.  Accept it.  It's your history.  Share it.
2) I'm one of those people that thinks "alot" should be added to the language as everybody seems to use it.  It's kind of stupid.  They can add "Inputting" which if you go back 15 years didn't exist but they can't add "alot"  What's up with that?

1) I'm not somebody that thinks you shouldn't talk about past relationships.  Those relationships helped make me me.  Many of my first or best experiences happened in those relationships and so they will come up.  I expect the same is true for you too.  Accept it.  It's your history.  Share it.
2) I'm one of those people that thinks "alot" should be added to the language as everybody seems to use it.  It's kind of stupid.  They can add "Inputting" which if you go back 15 years didn't exist but they can't add "alot"  What's up with that?

Wells Fargo is AWFUL!!!

2000-12-30

This page is closed for comments. If you want to comment about your Wells Fargo experiences please follow this link. Do I still think Wells Fargo sucks? Yes, more than ever. Especially given some of the responses from people claiming to work for them here. But that said, I'm tired of being reminded of this episode. Please take your comments here and hopefully something will come of them.

Wells Fargo Bank: In my opinion they must be the Single WORST BANK IN THE WORLD!!!!

Please please please if you are using Wells Fargo.  Please switch banks.  Do not reward this bank with your patronage.  You're only helping an evil empire.  Please get out now.
