If you want to get to know someone, don't ask them what they do, ask them why they do it. You'll learn more than you wanted to know, and quickly.
I started life as the biggest nerd ever. At some point I guess I got tired of it. Now, though I still remember nerdy things, I thrive more in creative endeavors. I'm a street, scenery, and modeling photographer.
(b)Pretty much anything by Stanley Kubrick, Monty Python and some others. Firefly/Serenity. Star Trek kicks ass. If you disagree, I will be forced to kill you ... in a few decades ... through a heinously slow mechanism called "aging". Yeah, that's right; it's MY fault you get old. What'cha gonna do about it, gramps? (It's also my fault the wind blows ... but that was an accident involving a Volvo and three un-paired sweat-socks your mom bought me last summer, I swear!)
(c)Some music saved as MP3s on my computer include these artists/songs/albums: Pink Floyd; Red Hot Chili Peppers; The Doors; Radiohead; En Los Jardines Espana (Falla's three movements); Norah Jones; Mint Royale; Led Zepplin; The Very Best of Sting and The Police; Eric Clapton; much of the work by Jerry Goldsmith, John Williams and Dennis McCarthy; Vertical Horizon; Smash Mouth; Aerosmith; Gotan Project; Mattias "Ia" Eklundh; The String Cheese Incident covers of Birdland and Take Five as well as the original by The Dave Brubeck Quartet; and Sundance Kid by Kent, anything by The Knife, Röyksopp, or Lykke Li.
(d) (I'm vegetarian, so bear that in mind.) I sometimes eat gluten free as my family does it. But I have a soft spot for the usual vegetarian junk foods with cheese. That must be why I have to work so hard to stay in shape. hah
