Hmmm . . . where to start. Tolkien come to mind, let's go with
Books: Tolkien, Neil Stephenson, Naoki Urasawa, C.J.Cheryl, Tad
Williams, Chaucer, Lao Tzu, Sun Tzu. Hell there's a lot more, but
that's a decent distribution of my interests I think
Movies, I like fun movies, and good movies. What's the difference?
Speed Racer was the single most entertaining movie last year,
entertaining! It was not, however, a good movie in the classic
sense. Plot, character development, immersion whatever. Car-Fu and
pretty colours are fun! (yes I read too many British authors
growing up so it's coloUrs but my spelling still isn't totally
British) Oh yeah I was into Anime, still kinda am, but everything
feels the same anymore.
Music, in semi-chronological order:
Classical (technically Romantic, and Baroque i believe but my
musical history knowledge is rather wanting) I'm also going to
throw Wagner, Gershwin and orchestrated soundtracks (say
Braveheart, or Final Fantasy) in here as well.
Robert Johnson and the way up to "The Real Folk..." kind.
Jazz (not smooth), also big band, swing, bebop w/e
not "oldies", more 60s-70s, Pink Floyd tops this list. We will also
toss in Jonny Cash here as I'm not big on country but some of the
older "folksy" stuff is pretty sweet. Also very much not Hair
Punk and ska
my heart of hearts, at least in the morning when I'm
generally...non-happy it's what I'm listening to now.
is when i grew up and i was grunge before grunge existed, oh I've
cleaned up a bit since then but I'll still sit around in a ratty
old t-shirt on a Saturday morning, might even where it if i need to
quick run out to the gas station or such, and yes this is a run-on
Some, very selective rap: OK now i don't want to be misleading with
this one, and half of this stuff isn't considered rap by the
young-uns but here's some specifics: The Beastie Boys, Snoop Dog
(who is an awesome person that makes me laugh; lol Huggy Bear,
actually i don't much care for his music/poetry) Doh! mind blank
the cowboy kid . . . Kid Rock yeah his old stuff was rap, it was
also rock w/e i don't care. I think I like a total of 2 Eminem
songs as well, though given I haven't listened to either in almost
two years . . .
I'm not really sure about the sub categories but I'm talking about
the "gotta at least nod your head" kind John Digweed is . . .
One more, cause this guy defies categorization: Susumu Hirasawa. Go
look it up. It's weird. I like it!
Food: Cheesecake, Sushi, Crab Legs, anything I acquire through my
own means. Other tasty stuff
