Music: I love so many different types of music.
The Avett Brothers

We Were Promised Jetpacks
Tedeschi Trucks Band
John Lee Hooker

I like doo-wop and rockabilly, blues, swing and big band. All of
this changes day to day.

O Brother, Where Art Thou?
The Big Lebowski (duh!)
Beasts of the Southern Wild
This is Spinal Tap,
Cool Hand Luke
Good Will Hunting
Into the Wild
Million Dollar Baby

Books: I read uncontrollably. If you aren't a reader we probably
won't be a good match.
The Good Earth by Pearl S. Buck, A Tree Grows in Brooklyn by Betty
Smith, Life of Pi by Yann Martel, The Kite Runner by Khaled
Hosseini (I love all his stuff), The Red Tent by Anita Diamant,
Unbroken: A World War II Story of Survival, Resilience, and
Redemption by Laura Hillenbrand. I've also read everything by
Dennis Lehane and David Sedaris. I've read most of Vonnegut's works
and all of Christopher Moore's. I really want to like James Ellroy
but I have trouble with the patter and patois of his writing style.
I like Palahniuk as much as the rest of ya, but I will admit that I
need Pepto Bismol and/or brain bleach after reading some of his
I love stand-up comedy….I consider it an art form. My absolute
favorite is the late-great George Carlin. And now his replacement,
Louis C.K. I also like Bill Hicks, John Mulaney, Nick Swardson,
Redd Foxx, Jerry Seinfeld, Ron White, Chris Rock, Jim Gaffigan (Hot
Pocket!), Richard Pryor. I don't like Dane Cook or Tosh. I want to
be Tina Fey when I grow up. Or Amy Poehler.
