I read World War II history and a wide range of magazines every
month: Saveur, Metropolitan Home, Inc., Baltimore
, Stereophile, Macworld, Road
& Track, and more. That's an interesting snapshot, isn't it! I
enjoy the work of W.E.B. Griffin and Anne Rice's ('A. N.
get used more than read, but there is quite a pile of them on the
shelf. I'm still working on getting container gardening down.
Music: I'm a New
with some classical thrown in, which I think represents how I live
my life. Internet radio has changed how I listen, even though I
still buy CDs. I own a bunch of frame drums and a djembe. I play
with them more than I play them, which is fine for drumming at
Food: I''ve been a pesco-vegetarian
since the early '80s, and eat pretty well. I do all of my shopping
at Whole Foods. I've been a 'natural foods' guy since 1979, and a
pesco-vegetarian since 1981. Being a New Englander, seafood is near
and dear to my tummy. A big plate of fried clams makes me wildly
happy, although it's a rare occurrence in my life. In general, I
eat a generally healthy diet. Okay, I'm a chocolate-loving guy,
dark and rich. Fear not: Carnivorous friends suffer neither wrath
or scorn. The same goes for wine drinkers (it all tastes like
alcohol to me, so I don't drink it).
Movies: I loved Chicago!, the Chronicles of Narnia, the Lord of the
Rings trilogy, and Iron Man ( I was a fan as a kid). The latter
three were all fantastic fantasy movies, which is just the quality
that I enjoyed most. The fantasy was utterly engaging and complete.
Their world was THE world. I love being taken there, or wherever I
am fully engaged. The Lord of the Rings have the added benefit of
delicious Enya soundtracks, big and bold and encompassing. I'm
eagerly awaiting the release of film one of three(!) of The Hobbit
in December! (I've read all of the books several times.) I've loved
all of the Harry Potter books, although the movies varied in
quality. Nonetheless, seeing them all on the big screen at The
Senator was a thrill.. Speaking of movies, if you enjoyed
Secretary, that's a plus.
As much as I enjoy the big screen at The Senator, the living room
theatre is very cool and way more comfy.
