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 exclusively, I don't know why I just am. On my nightstand
you'll find "On Acting" by Sanford Meisner, "Detroit: An American
Autopsy" by Charlie LeDuff, "Still Broke: Understanding the U.S.
Health Care System" by Stephen M. Davidson, "Palomar" by Gilbert
Hernadez, "Public Cowboy #1: The Life and Times of Gene Autry" by
Holly George-Warren, "Strikeforce: Morituri Vol 2" by Peter B.
Gillis and Brent Anderson, and "A Child's Garden of Grass" by Jack
S. Margolis and Richard Clorfene.
Musically I'm all over the map. Currently I'm listening to the
Knitters, Speedbuggy, Yardbirds, antmusic for antpeople, Sex
Pistols, Tex Ritter, X, Dread Zeppelin, The Drongos, Flying Burrito
Brothers, Dave Alvin, The Blasters, and The Dave Clark 5. 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.
