Books: Many. Far too many to name here. I've made lists before and
they're exhausting to write and to read.
I have a voracious appetite for History and I have infinite
curiosity so I'm constantly researching. I also like looking at how
novels translate into films.
Movies: Most of them. Particularly bio-pics, histories, intelligent
comedies. Best to list my favorite directors: Terry Gilliam, the
Coen Bros., Scorsese, Orson Wells (The third man is one of my very
favorite films), Kaufman, Kubrick, Apatow, Wes Anderson,
Zeffirelli, ... you know, the good directors. The list goes on.
Also I stood 3 feet from Ang Lee and Demitri Martin while working
as an extra on 'Taking Woodstock'. Lee gave my a head nod I'll
I'm also into Stand-up comedy on kind of an esoteric level. Bill
Hicks, Eddie Izzard, David Cross Lenny Bruce, Richard Pryor, Eddie
Murphy,to name a few.. Louis CK may be the best comedian working
today. Also, I quote George Carlin more than clergymen quote
Music: I believe all genres have some really good stuff and a lot
of total crap. My tastes change with my mood. With my itunes on
shuffle it currently looks like this: Bowie, Modest Mouse, Hendrix,
Beck, Neutral Milk Hotel, Weezer, NIN, Phil Ochs, TMBG, Townes Van
Zandt, Sublime, Beastie Boys, Zappa,
Cake, Smokey Robinson, Beatles, Jethro Tull, Ramones, Ween... you
get the idea. Also, I recently played the lead in 'Hedwig and the
Angry Inch' a trans-gender rock musical.
Food: Yes please. Preferable organic. I love to cook and there are
very few foods that I don't like, however, tomatoes, broccoli and
avocado have turned against me. I get very ill if I eat them.
