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, "The Complete Fabulous
Furry Freak Brothers" by Gilbert Sheldon, "There is Power in a
Union" by Philip Dray, "Fantastic Four" by John Byrne, and "A
Child's Garden of Grass" by Margolis and 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, 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. Right now
I'm watching season four of Fringe. Please feel free to introduce
me to something great.
