Books - Right now I'm reading some about how to do fun data tricks
in Excel and with SQL. Isn't that just so fun?
Music - Rather then list what sounds cool and things I might not
actually listen to all that often; here's what Spotify has to say
about the artists I like, which should give you a decent idea of
what I listen to.
Idina Menzel (yeah, no...Let It Go is the best.)
The Fratellis (I was on a Chelsea Dagger kick in Chitown)
The Gaslight Anthem
The Naked and Famous
Explosions in the Sky
Radio - I enjoy NPR. Every other station here makes me want to punt
a puppy (although I have a soft spot for Delilah on Magic 95.5.
CALL YOUR MOTHER. TELL HER YOU LOVE HER AND SHIT)
Movies - Aside from boring finance/environmental/economic
documentaries and FROZEN; anything by Tarantino, No Country for Old
Men, 3:10 to Yuma, every Disney movie....there's a bunch of others
I can't remember, I'm not a film buff.
TV - My primary pasttime is watching my hometown hockey team on the
couch at home and verbally berating them from 2,500 miles away. I
watch plenty of hockey, basketball, football - professional sports
in general (zero interest in anything college related. Once again,
I have not picked the right town.)
Actual TV shows - The Simpsons, Adventure Time, 30 Rock, Mad Men,
History Channel's crazy bullshit, Daria; basically anything funny
or otherwise amusing.
Food - I'm a huge fan of pizza and ramen (good ramen - not just the
stuff in a packet.), but brisket has grown on me. My last meal
would be a pizza, buffalo wings and a Coors Light followed by a
British digestive cookie and some milk.
I really really like Starbucks and the concentration of Starbucks
here is nowhere near Manhattan which is disappointing for me.
