I like a lot of music. Telefon Tel Aviv, Squarepusher, Fiona Apple,
Neil Young, and Deftones are a few favorites. I have cultivated an
IDM station on Pandora that I'm sure is better than most of the
stuff you listen to. Don't think so? Try me.
I don't believe in reincarnation, but if I did, I would want to
come back as Missy Elliott.
I like all food, especially if it's spicy. There's an Indian
