I'm a biblioholic. Currently have more books than I will be able to
read in my lifetime. I love to poke through books. Currently back
on a Sci-fi kick. I have quite a collection on authors who had
books banned in the past that I like or find interesting: DH
Lawrence, Henry Miller, de Sade, Anais Nin, Nabokov... Math,
History (Roman, Greek, French Revolution, Samurai culture),
Engineering topics, submarines, sexuality and erotica.
Currently Reading: 61 Days by Child; Broken Angels by Morgan
Looking on my bookshelf lately: A Terrible Love of War by Hillman;
Dogs in the Vineyard by Baker; Man of Steel & Velvet by
Andelin; Strategy & Tactics of War ed by Fowler.
Note: I do not expect you to care about my tastes in book
collecting or reading. Just be able to put up with it. You can
playfully roll your eyes and sigh while walking around with me in
the bookstore and I will just keep grinning like a kid in the candy
Discovering and finding good anime: Studio Ghibli films, Ghost in
the Shell, Read or Die. Taste runs to Terry Gilliam films (Time
Bandits, Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas, 12 Monkeys, Brazil, etc.).
Chinese and Japanese films. Movies linked to submarine service.
Recent TV watching included Dexter and Breaking Bad. Was getting
into Californication before it dropped off NetFlix. A friend is
introducing me to Game of Thrones. I am always late to the party
with TV shows...
Music-wise I tend to like the old ballads from Steve Miller and Tom
Petty. Huey Lewis and the News and Beat Farmers are some others
that get my interest. OK Go! and Renegade Legion techno. Tim
Minchin. I like quite a bit of new stuff I hear in the Heavy Rock
genre but do not go out tracking it down. Not so guilty pleasure is
I like spicy food. Like to cook and have quite a few favorite
dishes. Fall backs are medium rare steaks and stews with baked
crispy asparagus or chicken & eggplant stir fry. I have a
specialty dish that no one else makes called BS Beef and Onions. I
like to have people guess what the BS stands for after I make it
