I'm a bit of a book junkie. I love to learn, so I buy
books. I'm not big on fiction or novels. Most of my books are on
yoga and vedanta, (Bhagavad Gita
, Yoga Sutras of
, and just about anything by Swami Śivānanda).
Although I also have some on gardening
, Earthships, and permaculture
about 390 pages into Ayn Rand's "Atlas Shrugged". I imagine there's
a lot in that one that I'll learn, although I think her
philosophies are permanently ingrained into my upbringing. My
parents were both huge fans, so much so that my middle name comes
from the main character of The Fountainhead.
One of my very favorite movies of all time is sorely
mis-titled. It's called Alien Visitor
. There is only
one other person I've ever met, that I didn't introduce the movie
to, who has seen it. That was my brother, which I find to be an odd
coincidence. It's an awesome independent low-budget film from
Australia done really well. The message is profound. If we meet,
I'll show it to you for sure. Once you get past the super cheesy
title, I hope you'll see it for the gem it is. If you have happened
to have seen it, please let me know.
Perhaps not what you might expect, but I also love chick flicks. I
always have. I know, I'm just funny like that... I like several
comedies as well, There's Something
and Meet the Parents
also gone on long marathons of documentaries... mostly the big ones
on food and environment, Food, Inc.
, King Corn
Future of Food
, Dirt! The Movie
many more documentaries that I could recommend. That is probably my
favorite genre. All that being said, my favorite movies of all time
series and the Star Wars series
Perhaps an overlooked art form on these dating
sites, I think stand-up comedy is definitely an area that can say a
lot about someone.
personal favorite. What an amazing, brave man who had the balls to
say things well ahead of his time...brilliant.
my new favorite. Even though he's had a very long career, I hadn't
discovered him until fairly recently.
has to be the all time favorite special. It's
just pure classic.
Others... Ellen DeGeneres
, Craig Ferguson
... I really love stand-up.
I dedicated my life for 17 years to music. This was
my focus and passion. Inspired to express to the world the very
different way I saw things, I wanted nothing less than to be the
... to carry on the message he began for another
generation. At age 15, I started to learn the guitar. I wrote songs
and was in bands. At age 19, I opened up a recording studio with my
brother and learned recording and music production. At age 24, I
found electronic dance music; specifically progressive house and
progressive breaks. This was a turning point for me. It took off. I
signed my first record contract in 2000, and had my breakthrough
hit in 2002. From then I started signing many singles to record
labels all over the world. Eventually, I owned my own record label,
and slowly burned myself out. I quit the music business in 2006.
Now, I don't listen to music anymore. I'm sure it'll come back
someday, but for now, I'm really enjoying the silence.
A quick list of favorites would include... The Beatles
, John Lennon
, Oingo Boingo
, The Grateful Dead
, Tracy Chapman
, Desert Dwellers
, Ali Akbar Khan
I eat a vegetarian diet. I like for my meals to be
well balanced... usually my dinners are rice, beans, and
vegetables. With that as a base, the combination of flavor and
variety is nearly infinite. I also enjoy raw foods. I like to
sprout grains and legumes and add them over garden salads with
dressings made from scratch. My juicer is also a great friend.
