My favorite movies:
Dances with Wolves
original Star Wars Trilogy
Back to the Future
Dumb and Dumber
Naked Gun/Police Squad
Heart And Souls
Elizabethtown, to name a few.
Movies that I like that get a little better every time I see
The Usual Suspects
Stranger Than Fiction
Field of Dreams
The Truman Show. (One of the songs I wrote that I am very proud of
was inspired by The Truman Show.)
I like good romantic movies as well, like:
Sleepless in Seattle
When Harry Met Sally
Fools Rush In
Music and Lyrics
While You Were Sleeping.
One of my guilty favorites is Hudson Hawk. It's really dumb, but
really funny. I have others like that as well. Do you have one of
those movies that you really like, but is really dumb?
I reread the Harry Potter series every so often. They are really
enjoyable, and I don't consider them kids books. I like some
science fiction, like Arthur C Clarke. Also like Stephen King,
although haven't read much of his recent stuff. In general I will
like a book that sucks you in, and makes it difficult for you to
put it down.
I've been watching:
How I met your mother
Person of Interest (current favorite)
Big Bang Theory
The Walking Dead
I recently gave up cable, so I'm watching shows on Netflix or DVD.
Shows that are off the air but I still like:
Freaks and Geeks
Sifl and Olly. (I will have to explain that one, it's a little
I finally watched Firefly/Serenity, and really liked it. I'm now on
the forth season of Chuck.
Even if I don't have my boys I have been known to watch Phineas and
Ferb. If you haven't seen it give it a try; It's very funny.
My two favorite bands are either Barenaked Ladies, or Trashcan
Sinatras, depending on who I have listened to most recently. If you
are within driving distance see BNL live; they have an ongoing
conversation with the audience, and do a few improv songs each
show. But you can't throw Mac and Cheese anymore, which I
understand, but it's still a little sad. And 'Cake' by Trashcan
Sinatras is one of my favorite albums. Check out what Frank
Sinatra's family thought about the name.
I'm not a fan of country music. I like that a lot of the songs are
about love, family and friends, and that there are a lot of 'story'
songs. I can tolerate it, and have tried to like it, but I just
don't like it.
I also like:
Dave Matthews Band
Tears for Fears
Simon and Garfunkel
I enjoy a lot of '80's stuff as well, the good as well as the bad.
Some newer bands that I'm starting to get into are:
Foster the People
Empire of the Sun
Two Door Cinema Club
