I like to read. I'll pick up almost anything, but tend to like
funny books [Christopher Moore, Carl Hiaason, Douglass Adams, Dave
Barry] or detective/action [like Raymond Chandler]. I'm also a fan
of Edward Abbey, Tony Horwitz, Tim Cahill, Bill Bryson, and other
non-fiction or travel writers.
Confession: I read profiles looking for book ideas. It works well.
I've picked up several great suggestions.
Recently Enjoyed: The Alchemist; Finding Ultra; The Lust Lizard of
Melancholy Cove; The Racketeer; Swahili for the Broken Hearted; The
Serpent of Venice; Born to Run; The Art of Non-Conformity; The Rock
Warrior's Way; The Myth of Choice.
TV isn't important to me.
I prefer to do life, not watch.
Recently: WOTE, Citizen Cope, Daft Punk, Dave Matthews Band,
Jamrioquai, Brand New Heavies, G. Love & Special Sauce. I often
have my car radio on KDFC, classical.
Always: The Beatles and the Stones.
I under-appreciate electronic music, but hear it in places I like
(climbing gym, Burning Man, Parties) that I now recognize songs and
admit that some of them are growing on me.
I'll attend nearly any live music event to which I'm invited.
Food: I eat low on the food chain (mostly plants, often raw), yet
will eat anything non-dairy that I'm served/invited to share. I do
enjoy meat on occasion, especially BBQ or anything that I catch in
I've been known to get the veggie burger, with bacon.
Street food, purchased on location in far away places: *YUM*
Totally worth the occasional GI disaster. I'll pick an unknown hole
in the wall over a chain restaurant 11 times out of 10.
I eat chocolate (dark) every day. My nearly-100 year old
grandmother told me to. How can I argue with her?
