I consume a fair bit of media, print and otherwise, but it takes me
forever to finish something because I'm usually reading several
things at once. Currently I'm reading non-fiction and graphic
novels almost exclusively, I don't know why I just am. On my
nightstand you'll find "Teach Yourself iCloud in 10 Minutes,"
"Walmart: The Bully of Bentonville," "Crisis on Multiple Earths," a
biography of Gene Autry, classic 60s Fantastic Four by Stan and
Jack, and "A Child's Garden of Grass" by Jack S. Margolis and
Musically I'm all over the map. Currently I'm listening to the
Knitters, Speedbuggy, Yardbirds, antmusic for antpeople, Sex
Pistols, Commander Cody, X, Dread Zeppelin, The Drongos, Flying
Burrito Brothers, Dave Alvin, The Ramones, The Blasters, Social
Distortion, The Beatles, and The Dave Clark 5. As I type this I'm
listening to String Cheese Incident play side 2 of Abbey Road.
Bowie changed my life, The Dead taught me how to dance, Patti Smith
taught me how to rebel, and Frank Zappa is like a god for me.
Many years ago I went through what I call my Tragic Folkie Period.
It began in 1974 when I discovered early Dylan and ended in 1978
when I discovered the Sex Pistols. For some reason I seem to be
returning to those days since I'm listening to a lot of American
roots music lately.
My teevee watching consists mostly of The Walking Dead, Doctor Who
watch teevee on DVD and online rather than on the box. Please feel
free to introduce me to something great.
