Book: Anything by Kurt Vonnegut, cookbooks, Kerouac, historical
fiction and anything about pirates, pirates rule! Did you know that
in certain pirate groups they lived in male pairs? And they really
did love to dress up super fancy with lots of scarves and jewelry
and shit in their hair...oh and drink and fight.....
Movies: Wes Anderson....need I say more?
TV: I don't have or really watch TV, but when I do, I watch
Food: I love all food; oysters and champagne, rustic country bread
smothered in liver pate, Ramen, Pho, Chinese hand pulled noodles, a
grilled steak with mashed potatoes and a salad, sushi.....oh, and I
am a HUGE fan of anything fermented, Sandor Katz is a hero for
sure. I spend a lot of time fermenting veggies from the farm,
currently I have a fridge full or kimchi, sauerkraut, dill pickles,
fermented spiced carrots, sriracha, with some turnip kimchi in the
works. Where would we be without fermented foods? no beer, no
chocolate, but I digress...
Music: Old-Time music, also known Appalachain string band music.
Its fiddle tunes from the mountain of West Virginia, Virginia, and
the Carolinas, as well as Missouri, Alabama and Tennessee/Kentucky.
Its amazing music that is rooted in tradition and is a whole lot of
fun to play, fellow musicians get together in a session and play
tunes for hours and hours on end. Besides this uber geeky music, I
listen to classical, jazz, indie rock, swing, folk, and I am
getting way into honky-tonk. Its fun to play, sing and dance
too...there are few things that are more enjoyable than two
stepping till the wee hours....
Also, punk, jazz, classical, indie rock, folky stuff, swing, good
country, old hip-hop.... basically anything that sounds good, is
played with love and makes me feel good!
