Favorite authors - Mark Twain (seriously, the man was a genius and
100 years before his time), Carl Sagan, Michio Kaku, William
Faulkner, David Sedaris, PJ O'Rourke, HP Lovecraft, Sir Arthur C
Doyle, Michael Crichton, Stephen King, Graham Hancock, Bill
Waterson (points for you if you know who that is...) and too many
more...recently, my favorite book has been "An Island to One's
Self" by Tom Neale - just a remarkable story of going at it alone
on an island and one I would highly recommend.
Movies - I LOVE a good scary movie and bad monster movies too! (2
rubbery monsters slugging it out over Toyko? Sounds compelling...I
must watch.) Of course, I'm partial to good science fiction,
comedies as well and old movies - especially if that old movie is
starring Cary Grant! Father Goose, A Touch of Mink, Philadelphia
Story...any of them!! I learned everything
(I think) I need to know about being a gentleman from watching Cary
Almost nothing is better to me on a lazy Sunday than to curl up on
the couch with someone, surround ourselves with snacks, pull the
curtains tight and just make a movie marathon of the afternoon and
TV - Big Bang Theory, Modern Family, anything on the
History/Science channel, Family Guy, old South Parks, Monty Python,
Red Green, Food Network (especially Chopped), Dexter rocks, and I
absolutely love documentaries, I could listen to David Attenborough
read the phone book.
Music - I play a bit of guitar and back in the day, I would have
told you that I'm destined to be a musician. However, my creditors
and previous girlfriends assured me that it wasn't in the stars, so
now I just pick around occasionally if I've had a few beers. Mostly
classic rock stuff, alternative 90s stuff...I've seen so many
bands, it's hard to say exactly what my tastes are - but it spans
everything from Bluegrass to Led Zeppelin to Widespread Panic to
John Lee Hooker and Elvis. As long as it isn't rap, I'll listen,
groove and enjoy it.
