Here are some more basics:
- I love the outdoors and anything to do with water. In fact, if I had gills I'd probably be the happiest dude on Earth. I wouldn't be a pussy like Aquaman though. More like Kevin Costner in Waterworld. But I digress.
- I like old things, especially guitars, cameras, record players and my mother.. Don't tell her I said she's old though.
- I travel a lot but I also LOVE being home. Something about sitting in my own place making my own coffee and watching the sun warm up my own floor. Then again, I wouldn't mind being in Casablanca right now either.
- I like getting lost.
The rest, as they say, is for me to know and you to find out. That's the fun of it anyway, isn't it?
I know this kind of thing tends to be used to gauge similarity of tastes, so here's a quick sampling of some of my faves of each:
Movies: The Science Of Sleep, Broken English, Cool Hand Luke, Crumb, You're Gonna Miss Me, Diving Bell and the Butterfly, Down By Law, Ed Wood, The Big Lebowski, Raising Arizona, Harold and Maude, Withnail and I
TV: The Wire (friggin rocks! rocked?), The Muppet Show, Black Adder, The Mighty Boosh, Frontline, Curb Your Enthusiasm, MythBusters
Music: The Pixies, The Wedding Present, Varnaline, Bob Dylan, The Brian Jonestown Massacre, Ace of Base (yes), Luna, M. Ward, Bloc Party, Interpol, Built To Spill, Joy Division and New Order, The Jesus and Mary Chain, The Knife, Leonard Cohen, Modest Mouse, Pavement...you get the picture. I just love music, period.
Books: let's just say I read. A lot. Like I usually trip over about five or six books getting up in the morning. Currently I am regretting the decision to start a 900 page bio of Fyodor Dostoevskii. Mostly cuz I haven't finished my 600 page bio of Napoleon yet, plus I started Cloud Atlas but only managed to commit to like 2 chapters. You see where I'm going here, right?
Food: yes please.
