Most of my reading is of a technical or informative nature. Fiction
usually has a hard time holding my attention but some novels I've
read and enjoyed include Dead Eye Dick, Lord of the Flies, and
Stranger in a Strange Land.
I like nearly all types of movies as long as they are done well and
not just pure garbage just shit out to draw in the mindless masses.
As far as favorite movies I don't think I really have any
favorites, just don't make me watch The Fast and The Furious.
I don't really fallow any TV shows that have an on-going story
line. I've tried it and always end up missing an episode or two and
giving up. I watch a good bit of history channel, discovery, the
science channel, but no shows in particular. TV is seen as last
resort entertainment to me.
Music has always been and always will be a very important part of
my life. I can appreciate nearly all types of music if it is done
well but most of it isn't. The styles of music I hold most closely
to my heart include old school punk rock, classic country,
rockabilly, early psychedelic rock, 20's - 40's folk, and
experimental rock. The styles of music that generally seriously
offend my ears are nu-metal, contemporary country, and contemporary
christian. So if you're a Korn or Toby Keith fan we probably will
not get along. Bands I like include but are not limited to he
Rolling Stones, The Beach Boys, The Byrds, The Ramones, The Clash,
The Buzzcocks, The Vibrators, Johnny Cash, Jerry Lee Lewis, James
Brown, Otis Redding, Ray Charles, The Ronettes, CCR, Woody Guthrie,
David Bowie, The Stooges, Big Star, The Kinks, Them, The Hollies,
Reigning Sound, Devo, The Fall, Wire, Wipers, The Damned, Talking
Heads, The Velvet Underground, Television Personalities, Bo
Diddley, Chuck Berry, Calexico, The Sadies, The Mekons, Porter
Wagoner, Wanda Jackson, Minor Threat, Black Flag, Fugazi, The Three
Johns, Punishment of luxury, Gram Parsons, Little Jimmy Dickens,
The Dead Milkmen, Buck Owens, Hank Williams Sr. pretty much
anything that doesn't suck.
