Musically, I enjoy many genres and grew up playing rock ("classic" nowadays), HR, HM, blues, etc. The past several years I've really been getting into jam music with heavy influence from the Dead, Phish, Blues Traveller, Gov't. Mule, etc.
One of the things I get asked about most often is my music. I'm a bass player. Played since I was a kid and have passed through many phases with it. Spent over ten years doing the "Classic Rock/Oldies" thing and had a lot of fun playing the bars. Nonetheless, I found myself getting pretty tired of it after a while and wanted to do something different. Eventually started a jam project with an old buddy and have had more fun with my music than I have in many years. It's almost entirely free-form improv with a few other guys who pursue it for the same freedom of expression which I do, myself. We all have long and diverse backgrounds and what we put together out of thin air is often jazzy, gritty, bluesy and wild, with elements of Latin, folk, funk and classical thrown in for good measure. Some of it has been described as "Phish meets Frank Zappa." Guess I've been taking my influences to heart with this little project...
Good job/career, moderate stability, no baggage and a firm belief that life is too short for a lot of insecurity, hang-ups and "typical guy" bullshit. No patience for head cases or mind-gamers, either.
On the more domestic side, I like to cook (and I'm pretty good at it, too), read, take in a good movie or show, hang out or whatever. I love good live music, and that will generally get me out to a club much more readily than just the "scene." I am also an unrepentant hedonist and inveterate libertine who enjoys fine beer, wine and liquor, good cooking snuggling/sensuality, 420 and occasional psychedelics.
Movies go along similar lines, and a good old fashioned, shoot-em-up, over-the-top action/caper flick is always fun. I don't see many movies at the theater, though, since I don't enjoy them as much by myself. Similar story for most TV shows. I don't watch very much TV, so I don't catch most of the shows. Like movies, I find them later, on Netflix.
Musically, I can go with most things from Metallica to Mozart. Meh, on most country (I'm a life-long Parrothead, but that's entirely different) and rap/hip hop quickly makes me violent (as in destroy whatever is making that gawdawful noise).
Food? Yea, food rocks. Especially good food. I enjoy most/all types of food and love how our "Northwestiness" allows us to mix them in ways they were never intended, but should have been. I'm omnivorous by nature, but frequently tend toward pescatarian/vegetarian.

...And just for good measure, my six favorite bass players, without whom my music would be far less than it is: John Entwistle, Geddy Lee, Steve Harris, Phil Lesh, Mike Gordon and Bobby Sheehan.
