Love all types of music, but Rap and hip hop only in small doses.
Miles Davis, Mozart, Satriani, Rodrigo y Gabriela, Beastie Boys,
NIN, Chet Atkins, Eric Clapton, Rachmaninoff, Seal, U2, Pink Floyd,
Lyle Lovett, Aretha, Trace Bundy (local), Michael Hedges, Sara
Vaughn, Buddha Groove and Thievery Corporation to name a
few...Think Spotify and Pandora are a great idea, and use them
Cirque du Soliel is proof positive that enthusiastic excellence is
not only achievable, it is magical!
Douglas Adams is worth the read, and so is Moshe Feldenkrais. I
enjoy learning from books and DVD's, and am lucky to have
cultivated the gift of curiosity. I read a great deal. Don't watch
TV but used to love SNL, Fawlty Towers, Are You Being Served?.
Remember Twin Peaks?
Movies? The Bourne Trilogy, Avatar (incredible visual feast),
Second Hand Lions, Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, Rocky Horror
Picture Show, Alien, The Usual Suspects, Good Will Hunting, Finding
Forrester, Heat, Any Given Sunday, The Godfather, The Replacements,
KPax, Tin Cup, Good Morning Vietnam....
Cooking is a favorite when I have the time, and even when I don't.
I am not fond of much prepackaged fare. Yes, I do know how to can
pears and make chutney.
