Let me say music is a huge part of me and my life. I am a musician.
I also have a professional recording studio. I listen to, play and
record music. I also have done a fair share of DJing in my life. I
will listen to anything. It is the only love I have never lost or
I don't expect a partner to love music as I do. I would love to
hear your musical tastes.
I am constantly changing what I listen to depending on my mood and
my tastes at the moment. I like all kinds of music.
I have a HUGE vinyl record and CD collection and rarely listen to
the radio. Some of the stuff I return to lately are: Joy Division,
New Order, older punk and new wave, The Church, The Pineapple
Thief, Chicane, Interpol, Slowdive, Engineers, The Meeting Places,
Felt, Lifehouse, Very Early Tangerine Dream, Early Pink Floyd, Tom
Middleton, Jimmy Van M, John Digweed, Camera Obscura, Luna-Dean

Cure, the Killers, Fleet Foxes, David Bowie, Sigur Ros, Ron Pope,
Capital Cities, The Notwist, The Xx, Mogwai, M83, The National,

ON FOREVER. I also love early Jazz- Miles Davis, John Coltrane, Cal
Tjader, most Jazz from about 1957 to 1965 (the Blue Note and Verve
years), again there so many to list...
I have a one room library in my home which includes many nonfiction
works including- Steinbeck, Marquaz, Dickens, Kubrick, Tolkien,
Hemmingway. and many many Poets.
Most books I own are non-fiction or about philosophy-both Western
and Eastern. I am an information junkie. When I am interested in a
subject I am unyielding in learning as much as I can about it. So I
have many non-fiction books on everything from architecture to
design to furniture history and construction to tattoos to
motorcycles to race car design (LMP, GTR, F1) to artists like
Edward Hopper, Eric Fischl, Richard Estes, John Register,
TV: I really don't watch much TV. I do appreciate Discovery,
The older films I love are too many to list; ie.The Black Rose, The
Sweet Smell of Success, and so many more.....many of them Film
Noir. Some actors I enjoy that are pre-1970: Cary Grant, Spencer
Tracy, Bogey, Orson Welles, Ava Gardner, Lana Turner, Rita
Hayworth, Marlene Dietrich, and too many others to list. Some later
movies I like are The Omen (1976), The Graduate, Easy Rider, Clint
Eastwood Westerns, Planet of the Apes, The Godfather, Rosemary's
Baby, Midnight Cowboy and of course Star Wars.
As far as more recent films (after 1980 or so): Valley Girl, John
Hughes' teen movies (Pretty in Pink, Sixteen Candles, The Breakfast
Club, Weird Science, Some Kind of Wonderful, Ferris Bueller's Day
Off), SE Hinton Films, Boondock Saints, Neo Ned, Slumdog
Millionaire, Control, Brother, Donnie Darko, Guy Ritchie Films

Bond films, Quentin Tarantino movies (Pulp Fiction Kill Bill, Hero,
Inglorious Bastards, etc.), Beautiful Girls, Penelope, Garden
State, Michael Mann films (Heat, Miami Vice, Collateral, Thief,
etc.), David Mamet films and sooooo many more.
I like my food to have lots of flavor and be fresh. I hate "chain"
restaurants and love hole in the wall, obscure little restaurants.
I prefer vegan food where everything is fresh and living.
People may not believe me but you can make very good vegan dishes
in the exotic styles of Puerto Rican food (not Cuban-there is a BIG
difference), ALTHOUGH- I also love Cuban food, most Latin/Caribbean
food, Indian (I live on CHAI!!!!!), Real Italian, Real Mexican,
Thai is my favorite if done right, just about anything as long as
its vegan, light, fresh and not over-processed nor over-cooked, AND
has strong, colorful flavors.
I do my best to consume fresh organic non-processed foods. I grow a
large mount of my own food- vegetables and herbs mainly. Although I
do not eat meat, I refuse to eat tofu. I cook this way for myself
and my son. I love to cook from scratch because I control what goes
into what I eat.
