a) Sometimes a book grabs ahold of me and getting away is tough,
now might be one of those times. I can put the book down and walk
away, but it follows.
I have quite the list depending on the genre. I've decided to
eliminate the genre headings and just list the books though.
Language Older Than
Economy, Freedom, and Community
, Wheel of Time
, the Mars
[The Things They Carried
, while I don't like some of Heinlein's
philosophies; Stranger in a Strange
is a truly amazing book, Botany of Desire
, The Monkeywrench
too. The Muppet Movie
is an all time
classic, and The Dark Crystal
be forgotten. V
! Clerks II
was good. The comic book
geek in me tries to see all the Marvel movies.
3) I just got a good amount of bluegrass, folk, and polyrhythmic
music from a co-worker. I'm not familiar enough with everything he
gave me to choose favorites, but I have had some darn good music
flowing from my speakers lately.
Druken Irish Rock is good music.
Angry music tops are The Dropkick Murpheys, The Reverend Horton
Heat, Floggin Molly.
Downer music favorites are Lucinda Williams, REM, Low, Iron and
Wine, Leonard Cohen, Counting Crows, Greg Brown.
Indie favorites are The New Pornographers, Neko Case, Ani DiFranco,
The Decemberists, Metric, Broken Social Scene, Matt Bingen,
Accident Clearinghouse, Old Crow Medicine Show, Splashdown.
General alternative favorites are, Harvey Danger (man that free
album is awesome), REM, The Violent Femmes, Mike Doughty, Soul
Coughing, Counting Crows, Ben Folds (sometimes when I listen
closely to the lyrics I wonder why, but then I just let the sound
overwhelm me), Cracker.
All time favorites would be REM
, Violent Femmes
, Johnny Cash
. I can't believe I forgot
That Other One) Bread, I love to eat it, I love to bake it, I just
really like it. Atkins can blow me from the grave as far as I'm
concerned, give me my fresh loaf of Cardamom Orange. I also am
getting into an experimental mood, mainly involved with taking very
good quality ingredients (organic, local, etc.) and cookbooks and
seeing what happens. I am rather proud of my Egg Nog, although I
don't know if it would taste as good in the summer. Tamales are
wonderful, and fun to make!
