now let's try for an injection of humor:
Man walks down the street, passes a deli, BIG sign in the window: Fresh Bread $2.00; Ham Sandwich $5.00; Hand Job $10.00...
have you heard it?
I am surefooted, absorbing, and sensitive
I've been fortunate to have travelled to some great places on this planet, yet there are so many more ahead. I do tend to migrate toward civilized v less-than civilized spots. Right now Australia, Hong Kong, and Eastern Europe (Poland, Hungary, Czech) are on my radar. Samantha Brown and Anthony Bourdain have me sold on Singapore. But there's never anything wrong with a few days at the beach, or a couple of days in Vegas with a good meal (or two) and a good show (or two).
I live in Austin at present but don't think I will be here too much longer. Vancouver seems one possibility, or the Bay Area, maybe Berkeley.
Topsy Turvy and Tampopo, Super Troopers, Shawshank, anything by Patrice Leconte. Kieslowski Trilogy. Spaghetti westerns. Everything by Mike Leigh. Zombieland.
Ultimate Muscle Roller Legend, and Detective Mittens are shiny things to me. I try to stay relatively techie through blogs and genl online exploring:P I divested myself from TV/cable so my media based content comes fr the web in all shapes and sizes. I can binge TV shows w the best of them: Episodes is great and underappreciated. Mad Men (sure), and Boardwalk Empire, House of Cards is ok, and Orange Is The New Black has definitely lived up to all the hype....
Chris Cornell....I go for vocalists with strong voices whether its Al Green, George Jones of Taylor Dayne...Gregg Allman is pretty damn good too. I always thought Daryl Hall was just 1/2 of some 80s thing until I realized he has a top 5 voice. Someone has put me onto the new LCD Soundsystem, but so far I'm not hearing it. I do like Metric: Fantasies a whole lot; Silversun Pickups, The Arcade Fire. Yeah I listen to Lily Allen, but I'm not telling anyone.
Anything one can shove in ones mouth pretty much:) except beets...NO BEETS!.....(update: and I try hard not to eat my friends the animals :) that hypocrisy was killing me after all this time. I'm finding this new pallet of tastes a very pleasant and exciting change)
