I used to be a pretty avid Stephen King (IT, The Stand) and Dean
Koontz (Watchers, Midnight) reader, but it seems to fallen a bit to
Nixonland and Before the Storm by Rick Perlstein are some of the
best U.S. Political History books I've read recently (well, not so
recently... where does the time go?) The Years of Lyndon Johnson is
hands down one of the best political biography I've read. Currently
reading the Bully Pulpit (on Teddy Roosevelt and Taft)
I'm a huge movie fan. Sneakers, LOTR Trilogy, and Shawshank
Redemption probably remain my favorite. Other movies I enjoy
include, but are not limited to Dr. Strangelove, Terminator 2, Star
Trek I:: Wrath of Khan, Usual Suspects, Momento, Star Wars Trilogy.
I definitely enjoy a night out (or in) watching a recent (or not so
I'm a bit nerdy, so also like political/historical documentaries.
Just watched Boogie Man recently and really enjoyed it. (Fog of
War, The War Room, Prohibition, and The Dustbowl were also pretty
Currently: Walking Dead, Game of Thrones, Downton Abbey, Mad Men,
Breaking Bad (I know it recently ended, I'm in denial), The Daily
Show, House of Cards, The Americans, Helix Alpha House, and I
occasionally catch How I Met your Mother.
Historically: The Wire, Any of the Star Treks, Simpsons up to
season 12 or so, The West Wing, any of the Stargates (even
Universe!) Battle Star Galactica, Band of Brothers,
Honestly, I'm a bit of a fair weather fan. For football its first
and foremost 49ers, then the Redskins (who do need to change their
name, What about the Washington Gridlock?) and third, whomever is
playing the Dallas Cowboys. For baseball, its the Giants, and then
the Nationals. I probably end up watching more Nats games though,
due to the ease of going to a game.
I love food. Often times when friends or co-workers put together a
lunch type thing and ask I want to go, I will just respond "I like
food" (which is an affirmative). That said, like every Californian
in DC I am always craving some good Mexican food. I would call
myself a "meat and potatos" type of guy, but I honestly really do
like vegetables as well. So again, I like food.
My musical tastes are pretty eclectic (I realize that is not an
original thing to say). Broadly speaking I'd say I have three
sources of music - songs of middle school to college (Nirvana, Red
Hot Chile Peppers etc) 70s/80s music that I got from my older
sister (AC/DC, Def Leppard, etc Led Zepplin, The Stones) and music
from my childhood/mother (folksy music - John Denver, Cat Stevens,
the Beatles etc, Johnny cash)
I do enjoy listening to whatever the most recent pop hit is, but I
have a feeling that few will become part of my favorites.
