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: Order of the Stick: Blood Runs in the Family;
The Fleet: Counter Attack by Drake, etal.; The Utility of Force by
Looking on my bookshelf lately: Culture Wars: The Struggle to
Define America by Hunter; Mind Matters: Teaching for Thinking by
Kirby & Kuykendall; Problem-Solving Methods in Artificial
Intelligence by Nilsson; A Second Course in Complex Analysis by

or reading. But if you do, more to connect on and talk about.
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 includes Agents of Shield and Clone Wars. I am
always late to the party with TV shows... but I do watch the
seasons in quick succession since they are all out :-)
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! power pop is a recent fad of mine.
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
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
