Just about anything by (in no particular order) Mark Twain, William
Shakespeare, Nick Hornby, J.R.R. Tolkien, Tm Robins, Kenneth
Graham, Terry Pratchett, Christopher Moore, Saki (Hector Hugh
Munro), Roald Dahl, Arthur Conan Doyle, Issaic Asimov, Tom Wolfe,
John Steinbeck, Edgar Allen Poe.
Too many favorites to name them all, but some of my favorites are
"Being There", "Princess Bride", "Shakespeare In Love" and "The
Incredibles". I'm a screen junkie, (I can resist anything but
visual temptation) but I haven't watched commercial TV in thirty
years (I can't do TV responsibly) but I do have a screen and watch
DVDs. I like to think of it as methadone.
Being a musician tends to make me want to listen to just about
anything, (although I tend towards R&B, rock, soul, etc.) but
there are a few genres I just don't get, including industrial or
really twangy country tunes. I'm also not a big fan of pop-music
from the 80's (that was the decade I took the radio out of my car).
