Into Thin Air;
Touching the Void;
The Lost Men;
The Metaphysical Club (amazing book about Pragmatism in
Anything by John Dewey; especially the stuff about experience as
art. It's probably part of my religion;
and, although it's a tough read---E.B. Sledge's With the Old
All time favorite: Pulp Fiction. I'm a real sucker for Dialogue.
After that, there's hundreds of great ones.
First and Foremost: The Daily Show. Thank you, John Stewart. I'm
actually a smarter, better person because I watch a 21 minute
comedy show 4 days a week. The Colbert Report works well too.
Aside from that:Game of Thrones, Bored to Death, Dexter, Boardwalk
Empire, Deadwood, Weeds, South Park, Nurse Jackie, United States of
Tara, Entourage, Eastbound and Down, Hung. Yeah, most shows on HBO
Music: Indie's great. I used to be more particular with my music,
but I've gotten lazy. Bluegrass is a current favorite.
Food: Anything and everything. Thai, Indian, Mexican, Chinese,
Sushi. Steak (rare).
Beverages: Whiskey, Fall through Winter. Gin and Tonics, Spring and
Summer. Essentially, I apply the rules about memorial/labor day and
proper colored attire to my liquor choices. Tequila has also found
a place in my heart, but I'm picky. Aside from that, Red Wine or
Beer. I AM a beer snob, except for Yuengling. IPA's in the summer,
Porters and Stouts in the winter, Pale Ale year round. Lager
sometimes (Oktoberfest--I'm German after all), Wheat beer never.
