Books: I read a lot of thrillers, sci-fi, fantasy & the
occasional biography. William Gibson, Robert Heinlein, Lee Childs,
Robert Crais, Neal Stephenson, Terry Brooks, Piers Anthony, Pat
Cadigan, Orson Scott Card, Jim Butcher & on & on. Other
than that, I love Vonnegut, chuck palahniuk(is over rated, get over
it) Carl Hiassen and books that make me laugh.
Movies: I'm a nerd and it especially shows in my movie selection. V
for Vendetta, Bladerunner, Superhero movies, heavy CGI Sci-Fi epics
and most animated features I'll check out in the theater.
Shows: Don't really follow too many shows anymore, since they suck
the living jeebus out of me. Which isn't to say I haven't plowed
through BattleStar Gallactica, Game of Thrones, Dexter &
Justified in 3 sittings.
Music: NIN, The Pixies, BassNectar, Jurrasic 5, Mos Def, Passion
Pit, Postal Service, Underworld, DJ Shadow, DJ Spooky, The Head
& the Heart, Modest Mouse, Little Dragon & SUBTRKT, The
Knife, Bob Marley, Phoenix & on & On & on. I used to DJ
a while ago and I still have the same mentality as far as absorbing
as much sound as I possibly can. If there's a bassline, I'm the
tweaker by the speaker.
Food: I've been working in the restaurant/bar industry for over 15
years. I also love to cook when I have the time and will usually
throw a dinner party for 8-15 people every couple of months just to
satisfy that urge.
