Bearnamic Duo – John & Frank

Meet Mid Century Modernists John & Frank from Palm Springs, with pieces featuring the Art Of John Murasky : http://www.johnmurasky.com/

154922_477771995599040_999739029_n
Hi John & Frank,

How did you guys meet?
“We met back in May of 1996, on AOL! Can you believe it? We met in the “Bears 4 Bears” chat room. We would chat online daily, but that evolved into daily phone calls, which made for some very expensive phone bills, since I lived in the Los Angeles area, and Frank was in Salem, MA.
We would actually watch movies on the phone. We would sync up the movies, on each end, and watch the whole thing over the phone! We would also send each other little gifts using the same cardboard box. I don’t know how many trips that little box made across the country, but we still have it! Sickening, I know. We finally had our first in-person meet at Walt Disney World in October of 1996. Frank eventually moved to CA in 1999.”

Do you have common interests?
“We both love mid-century modern design, classic movies from the 30s through the 60s…let’s see… what else… classic cars, cooking, classic disco, cartoons, animation, sci-fi, UFOs, ghosts, history,
and of course, the city we live in, Palm Springs!”

Do you each have an interest that the other has none in?
“We actually share pretty much all of our interests, but often one likes something to a higher degree than the other. Cars, for instance, is Frank’s big love. He knows all the models, makes, what they originally came with, what color they came in… I just think they’re cool and pretty. The opposite might be true for cartoons and animation.”

What’s the secret to your successful relationship?
“One word… Communication! We always tell each other what we’re feeling, what’s going on, all that.”

Any advice for a dating couple?
“We would say, be open to all possibilities. It always makes me laugh when you hear guys saying “I’d never date a guy who does this, or looks like this, or is into that.” I just think they’re narrowing the field too much. They might miss out on the love of their lives because of one tiny thing. Or, they have this impossible laundry list of expectations, that no one will ever live up to.”

Thanks John & Frank! Cheers from the Modern Bears!

Meet Woofy Wesley from L.A.

Hi Wesley!

11667406_922265831149652_7942587533701937798_n
What’s your idea of a perfect date?
“Hmm this for some reason seems to be the hardest question to answer. This can go in so many directions. Obviously a perfect date would entail laughter, tons of flirting, furry kisses, butterflies and “excitement”.
I’m a big fan of dinner with some bad ass ambiance and a movie. Preferably in one of the theaters with the small couch/love seats so there’s groping and cuddle action.
I also can take it outdoors and do say, a hike and maybe a picnic in a secluded spot on a hill in the grass under a tree to watch the sunset.
Or there’s the hot hangout on the couch for as long as you both can resist, maybe 20-30 mins into a movie and then just go at it!”

How would you describe your personal interior design style?
“Rustic design, earthy contemporary and a little pop never hurt.”

What kind of music do you listen to?

Fitness Routine:
“I workout about 6 days a week and do about 30 mins of cardio a day, preferably the treadmill on full incline at a nice speed. I lift weights on all gym days and try to switch up my routine every few weeks to keep it interesting and to constantly shock and stimulate my muscles. I like to add in a good core routine once or twice a week to stay in good healthy shape.”

Occupation:
“Canine Recreations provider, I exercise and socialize doggies!”

Fitness, weight lifting, Live music, concerts, cooking, watching movies, Travel adventures, LAZY BEAR WEEKEND, I’d say my job as well because I really love working with dogs, being in nature which I never feel like I get enough of. Hanging out with my friends and just being silly.”

Guilty Pleasure Snack: “Ice Cream, it’s the best.”
