Read: mostly mysteries and comic thrillers...Michael Connelly,
Robert Parker, Jonathan Kellerman, Donald Westlake, Robert Crais, T
Jefferson Parker, Carl Hiaasen
, Tim Dorsey, Richard
Price. Occasionally the well-received best-seller or hipster tome
and there's always an unread stack of New Yorkers around my
Watch: quality non-dreckish movies--anything with Coen
, Scorsese and Anderson (Paul
Thomas or Wes) would usually get my attention. It's often difficult
for me to jump on a movie bandwagon--for example, never seen
Titanic, LotR or Matrix movies.
Listen: I worked for a record company during the 90s after spending
my youth as what I'll term a Hardcore. The music biz exposed me to
a lot of different things, nowadays I'm open to most anything but
country and top 40...leaning most towards indie rock. All-time
faves: Jesus Lizard, Superchunk (first 3 albums), Fugazi, Polvo,
Mudhoney, Buzzcocks, Dag Nasty, the Who, Born Against. Lately I've
been alternating between random underground hip hop mixtapes and
one-man black metal.
Eat: I'm equally satisfied with a fine meal in a restaurant or
something home-cooked...Any kind of Asian, especially sushi,
. Did I say I love Vietnamese? Hell, I've been known to
drive to a random city and type the word pho into my gps.
