I can't think of one way to describe myself that wouldn't sound somewhat ridiculous. Including all of this. Let's just say I am a voracious consumer of all forms of expression - music, TV, books, film, art, etc. I love food of all kinds. I'm very liberal. I'm into intellectual pursuits but I'm also a populist so pretension is not my thing. I have a serious love/hate relationship with humans. Etc. etc. just go get a drink with me!
BUT I've been getting more queries about throwing down some specifics. So here's a cross section in RANDOM ORDER:
Music: REC, Daniel7, U2, Beatles, Femmes, Beasties, Nirvana, Who, Death Grips, Wombats, Horrors, Futureheads, Roots, Cure, Prince, Chicago, Franz Ferdinand, Sea Pinks, Bloc Party, Brubeck, Monk, TMBG, almost anything from NOLA, tons of stuff from Britain & Scotland. Chopin, Schumann, Bach(!), Debussy, Satie, Bartok.
TV: I watch a shiteload of new shows. Let's talk. Dig USA, BBC-A, SYFY!! in general. Admit to CW, Fox, the old "big three" networks. PBS, mo' or less. Bootleg stuff from HBO, Showtime, Max (their non-porn original programming is damn good). Of course FX, AMC. Smattering of online programming. It is NOT always sunny in Philly - I should know, I was born & raised there. But AWESOME show! Daily Show, Colbert, getting seriously into Chozen lately. ATHF, Deathklok show, Adventure Time, Spongebob. ANYTHING Louis CK. Survivor with my daughter.
Reading: Dickens, Eggers, Murakami, Knife of Never Letting Go, Stephen King, non-fiction, weird shite, lots of magazines, Sunday Times.
Movies: DEALeR (look it up on Amazon Prime! using "dealer feenix" - I dare ya), Clandestine, Requiem, Lock-Load-Love, Nicky Newark, This End Up, Capra stuff, Spielberg, Scorsese, Peter Weir, Wilder.
Food: Ridiculous question. If it's not moving, I'll try it. If it's moving, give me $500 and I'll try it. Prefer it not to be raw, unless tuna/sushi. Have no dietary restrictions because life is damn short. But Tex-Mex, burgers, pan-Asian, Indian buffet!, good salad, pizza - good and bad, REAL Italian, yes fast food, home cooking - did the Pillsbury Bakeoff once. Way prefer peanut butter cookies over chocolate chip. Only eat dark chocolate because don't even joke.
Multiply all that by 30, and the music by 300, and you've got the picture.
How to live the fullest life & still take care of those around me.
How to make my careers more profitable.
*You represent yourself honestly and consistently, and have no expectations or preconceived notions. You've actually read & absorbed the first paragraph way up above, but that still doesn't scare you away from giving this a try.
*You can swim in the deep end, but love to splash around in the shallow end too.
*You think the above metaphor is both cool AND cheesy.
