Cormac McCarthy, Elaine Pagels.. Dostoyevsky and Hermann Hesse were
huge for me in my 20s. Barbara Kingsolver, Marcus Aurelius. I don't
know.. I used to read a lot, but lately it's more listening
to/playing music. I am slowly reading, 'To Be Loved' by Berry Gordy
Pan's Labyrinth. Louie CK, Freaks and Geeks, Lost in Translation,
Princess Bride, Cohen Brothers, Lars Von Trier, Wes Anderson,
Sergio Leone, The Ballad of Cable Hogue, Cool Hand Luke,
Bladerunner, Family Guy, Movie 43 made me laugh out loud a lot. So
dumb, but well done!
Music is my first love and I have a pretty broad spectrum of
interests. I've been playing piano and/or guitar consistently since
3rd grade, but the very first piece of music that really rocked my
world was Beethoven's C minor sonata, the 'Moonlight'. I think I
was 7 years old and my mom played it for me once in it's entirety,
and then I wore out the record. It blew my little mind!! Then came
Michael Jackson.. Anyway, in short, if it's well done and honest, I
will be able to appreciate something about it regardless of the
genre. Tell me something I absolutely must hear, please!
I love food, well made simple local and/or organic food, when
possible. I'm kind of addicted to spicy food.
