I really enjoyed “The Moral Landscape” by Sam Harris “The Happiness
Hypothesis” by Jonathen Haidt, “The Noonday Demon” by Andrew
Solomon, “Sick Societies” by Robert Edgerton, “Republic, Lost: How
Money Corrupts Congress--and a Plan to Stop It” by Lawrence Lessig,
"Unstoppable: The Emerging Left-Right Alliance to Dismantle the
Corporate State" by Ralph Nader, “Quiet” by Susan Cain, George
Carlin's autobiography "Last Words", and “Rhythms of The Brain” by
Gyorgy Buzaki. I don’t read a lot of fiction, but I liked “Dune” by
Frank Herbert, “The Stranger” by Albert Camus, “Good Omens” by
Terry Pratchett & Neil Gaiman, “The Gun Slinger” by Stephen
King and am currently reading an excellent fantasy series called
“Malazan: Books of The Fallen” by Steven Erikson.
Movies? The Big Lebowski, Monty Python’s The Meaning of Life, The
Dark Knight, Dangerous Liasons, The Way of The Gun

3000 (I’ve been revisiting that show & it’s pretty damn witty)
I think I have a pretty diverse taste in music. I like some rap
(not current club rap) such as Talib Kweli, Gang Starr, Jurassic 5,
The Geto Boys, Eric B. & Rakim, old industrial music (Skinny
Puppy, Pig, Ministry, Frontline Assembly, My Life With The Thrill
Kill Kult), Aloe Blacc, Otis Redding, James Brown, Primus, Devo,
Tim Booth, REM, Flight of The Conchords, James Brown (great wake up
music!), and Pink Floyd.
Saw Roger Waters in July ’12. BEST SHOW EVER!!!!
Food: I like Indian and Thai food a lot. I love a good steak (but
eat them sparingly for health). Peter Chang’s in Glen Allen was one
of the best meals I’ve had in a while.
