Job: Server at Carroll Street Café
Relationship status: Has a girlfriend
Smiths-listening, anime-watching, L5P-residing, tattooed hipster Vincent used to go to every cool show in town when he was in his teens. Now the Milwaukee native splits his time between work, studying journalism and public relations at GSU, and repairing his '78 Honda CB650. Oh, and finding Atlanta's next great cheeseburger, a hobby he's adopted since falling off the vegetarian wagon last year. Vincent talks like he's full of himself, but then he cops to being nerdy, so we think he's just having fun with us. Or maybe his sweet smile is throwing us off.
What's your standard drink?
If I am being a baby, I will drink PBR. But if I have things to do, Jack and ginger all day.
What band were you obsessed with when you were 14?
The Smiths then, the Smiths now.
What's your guiltiest pleasure?
What's your least favorite household chore?
Dishes. Oh my God, I'm like super squeamish, so I can't handle seeing a clump of food in the sink.
On which reality TV show should you be cast?
"Jersey Shore." I like to be douchey with the guys. I'll fist-pump with them.
What's the last thing that made you cry?
My girlfriend made me watch "Intervention." It's too much.
What's the last good book you read?
I'm in school right now, so I don't read too much for free time. But The Unbearable Lightness of Being.
What do you wish someone would hurry up and invent?
Teleporting cheeseburgers to me. How about that — teleportation.
What's the lamest pickup line anyone's used on you?
Something about polar bears and breaking the ice. It's horrible. Pickup lines are horrible, anyway. You shouldn't even do those.
If you could live in any movie, which would it be?
Anything with Patrick Dempsey. How about Can't Buy Me Love?
What's the first album you bought with your own money?
[Laughs] This is embarrassing. Fourth grade. It'd have to be the *NSYNC CD. Actually, no! Before that, I bought the Mortal Combat CD.
What's the best way for a customer to hit on you?
I have a huge head, so you can say anything and I'll probably be into it.
Who would play you in the movie of your life?
It has to be someone very attractive. They gotta be the best! I don't know, they have to be really good at stuff. Let's see ... let's do Tyson Beckford.
If you were a groupie, who would be the object of your obsession?
Dude: Ryan Gosling. Lady: Charlize Theron. She's so sexy.
What's the one thing you most hope to accomplish this year?
Oh, to get my website up and running. Most definitely. Um, I want to call it Weekend Warfare. I'm actually in the process of making it right now. It's geared to the alternative crowd. You can go find chill listings and band reviews and everything, but, um, not like it's convoluted like Ticketmaster, where I have to go through pages and pages of Daughtry and Nickelback or whatever to find something I actually like.
What's your least favorite thing about Atlanta?
Park Atlanta. They should die. Easily.
Is there a drawback to being attractive?
Oh, most definitely. 'Cause any situation, regardless of its friends or whatever, is kinda sketchy. You find yourself making a friend. Then you get that weird, I-don't-know-if-you-like-me feeling. Basically, if you're really attractive and you're in a relationship, you should have friends in relationships.
What's the weirdest thing in your house?
Hmm. I'm pretty normal. The massive amount of Nylon magazines that me and my girlfriend have is probably a little weird.
Name one thing you've stolen.
I stole a matchbox car for my little brother when I was in ninth grade from Kroger. I didn't get caught, though.
Who's the most important person in your life?
My family first and foremost. I love my mother, my brother, and my father. But definitely, my lady.
What's your sexy-time soundtrack?
I'm a big fan of the R&B jams. I'm gonna go with Jamie Foxx.
Have you ever been dumped? If so, what was the reason?
I've been dumped two times. One, she like played lots of soccer and traveled all time. The other girl dumped me for the cool guy with a lot of tattoos. I was still in school.
What's your pettiest relationship deal-breaker?
I feel like I date very high-maintenance girls. The one thing I hate the most with anyone is rhetorical questions. Don't ask me something you know already. You'll definitely get a no-response.
What would you order for your last meal?
Some type of delicious cheeseburger. I was a vegetarian for eight years and I never cheated once. My girlfriend this year kept saying I should try bacon. I finally gave in and had a bite of Cobb salad and it was over — bacon cheeseburgers on the regular.
Lawd, please stop advertising the hostel. It's a sacred space.
one addendum: take the golden isles highway to brunswick rather than I-16. it's like going…
How is the stupid rap "music" version of The Great Gatsy supposed to be classy?
Absolutely fabulous. My summer is planned.
Dahlonega is a great little town!
