Birthdate:Sep 29
Location:Kernersville, North Carolina, United States of America
Just a bit of info about me... I grew up in Southern California, but presently I reside in Kernersville, North Carolina. I am married to my wife Mindy, am the proud father of our daughter Emily (5), son Jensen (2). I am a former employee of AT&T Wireless, American Express, iQor, Bank of America, and am presently unemployed. I have a wide variety of musical tastes, ranging from Alternative to Classic Rock, or from Lounge to Country - you never know what I'll be listening to from day to day. I am a huge movie buff and I have an uncanny knack of naming actors voices in commercials or know what movie you are watching just by hearing the music. That is one of the reasons I am the moderator of moviequotes, in addition to co-moderating 80s_trivia. I am someone who enjoys learning about new things, and have loads of trivial knowledge crammed inside my skull - enough to carry on a conversation, but not enough to consider myself an expert on any particular topic.

In my journal, I write about many things - I share my thoughts about current events, things that strike me as interesting, I write about life as a dad and a husband, I write about my past when I am feeling nostolgic, or else vent about family and work drama. The bottom line: I try to keep everything interesting and entertaining. Come on in, look around, and if you like what you read than add me to your friend's list - (Note: If you just friend me at random, I reserve the right to not add you back if I don't think we are all that compatible as LJ friends) If you can't make up your mind, see what some of my friends have to say about my journal:

modernarchetype -- Life with a splash of imagery. Fatherhood with a sense of humor. Opinions concocted of equal parts sincerity, thought and wackiness.

krazyleesa -- A caring husband, great father to lil Emily, someone I'm glad to call a friend. Oh yeah...he knows his 80's stuff too! :)

hofmannison -- mcbarnes1970 is so much like me it's scary!

sillylizzie -- mcbarnes1970 is a goof, who seems to like to have fun; and yet has a refreshing serious & philosophical side.

talitha_oy -- It's a good, intelligent, and fun read....a good way for me to keep up with the life of an old friend who's across the country from me.

the_headhunter -- His Mickey Mouse Kung Fu is no match for my superior fighting style!

babyulu -- A must add, mcbarnes1970 is a fellow former So. Cal guy & Monsoon whose posts I always look forward to because they are fun, refreshing, and random. (Plus he's got the cutest daughter ever!)

hippie_chick -- Refreshing and intelligent reading. I'm happy to have Michael on my friends list. Add him now, you know you wanna.

ainabarad -- When I met him, I had randomly stumbled across his journal. My son was standing by my side, took one look at his layout, and started squealing, "SUPERMAN! LOOK, IT'S SUPERMAN, MAMA!" Being a Superman fan myself, I couldn't resist reading more about the man behind this personal fortress of solitude I had discovered and the rest is history!!! He's absolutely made of awesome in so many countless ways and I'm blessed to have him as a friend.

eliz -- mcbarnes1970: Never read your friend's list without it.

Even total strangers agree!
chrishaas -- If you only add one journal to your friends list, mcbarnes1970 should be it.
