In my spare time, I write. I just finished a novel which I'm revising for publication next spring.
I'd like to think I'm pretty decent at writing, and my singing voice isn't bad.
I can cook, but am much better at making it up as I go than following a recipe!
For example: Radiohead, The Hold Steady, Iron & Wine, Wilco, Pearl Jam, The National, The Arcade Fire, Calexico, Elliott Smith, TV On The Radio, Public Service Broadcasting, Laura Marling, Local Natives, Air, Glasser, Mogwai, Death Cab For Cutie, Ben Folds, Spoon, Ludovico Einaudi, Thievery Corporation, Fela Kuti, The War on Drugs, Amadou and Mariam, Toumani Diabate, Vieux Farka Toure, Tiniarawen, Miles Davis, John Coltrane, Keith Jarrett, the Beastie Boys, the Chemical Brothers, the Streets, Faithless, Jimi Hendrix, Paul Simon, Yes, Dire Straits and Bon Iver.
My reading list began with a lot of scifi in my youth, but now I read a lot of other genres of fiction, as well as popular science, economics, history and psychology. There are few authors I try not to miss - China Mieville, Neil Gaiman, George RR Martin, Nick Hornby, Neal Stephenson, Michael Chabon, Charles Stross, Malcolm Gladwell, Michael Lewis, Patrick Rothfuss, Terry Pratchett. Plus the classics - Kundera, Steinbeck, Hemingway, Douglas Adams, Iain Banks, Fitzgerald, Tolkien, etc. In general I read what's had good reviews, as well as the writers I know personally.
I really enjoy quirky films like Wonderboys, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, Stranger Than Fiction or The Life Aquatic and watch most of the award-nominated films each year if I can, but I also love a popcorn action or scifi movie. I don't watch TV but I go through series on Netflix - The West Wing, House of Cards, Battlestar Galactica, Firefly, Fringe, Breaking Bad and The Killing are some favourites.
I love food, and there's very little I won't eat. I try to eat healthy most of the time but I occasionally succumb to a pulled pork roll, burrito or curry. I'm a little obsessed with avocados.
