I love the Marx Brothers; my Dad's fault. Good old humor that still
cracks me up as others sit by in stony silence. Also, Seven
Samurai, Children of Men, Secondhand Lions, Up and various other
animations, and cheesy B horror flicks like Tremors. Wild Zero is
Red Hot Chili Peppers are not always my favorite band, but
consistently rank up there. Almost always good for a song by me.
Other eclectic tastes ... TV on the Radio, Gnarls Barkley, Lupe
Fiasco, K'naan, Modest Mouse, Alison Krauss, RJD2, Jurassic 5, Wild
Sweet Orange, Blue Scholars, Wild Asparagus, Edward Sharpe, Manu
Reading has been my (solo) vice of choice since I was young. My
favorite book in recent years is Wicked, along with other Gregory
Maguire. I also enjoy His Dark Materials, Ender's Shadow, Dresden
Files, Anne McCaffrey, The Dancing Wu Li Masters, Shōgun, The Five
People You Meet in Heaven, and other random stuff, fiction,
nonfiction, funky textbooks, pretty much anything. I love Maurice
Sendak and Tom Robbins!
I also really enjoy the Drunken-love-poetry-to-God of Rumi and the
hot mess of style of ee cummings.
