I'm not really fond of favorites, because I like so much stuff,
really. The other part of the favorites game is that most people
will read this at the top, and process it in their mind and then
read the specific items below as a check list, looking for things
that directly relate to their interests. So I hesitate to list
anything because I really do like to so much. But I'll hit some
Books) Grew up reading back-to-back books during most of my
childhood, but don't remember the plot of most of them. It just
helped me "speak good." These days I get excited about books
regarding business, philosophy, spirituality, psychology,
biographies, and fiction. Just skimming my brain, the floaters
(Title and Author) are: The Satanic Verses, Slaughterhouse Five,
Breakfast of Champions, Good to Great, Built to Last, Bukowski,
L'Amour, Deida, Vonnegut, Tolle, Coehlo.
Movies) I tend to go to the thrillers for a fun experience, but
also chick flicks are not unheard of for me, good stories, even
documentaries, some drama, a little bit of horror, mind-benders.
Fight Club, Jurassic Park, Matrix, Eternal Sunshine of a Spotless
Mind, The Machinist, What The Bleep Do We Know.
Shows) I really need to get access to Game of Thrones soon. Was in
Germany when the new season hit and haven't caught up since I got
back to the States.
Music) Man, oh man, what's not to love? I recently went to a Rising
Appalachia concert at the City Winery, it was just stellar. I like
blues influenced music a lot, your blues rock, bluegrass, classic
blues, I also like rock, R&B, some hip hop, some country,
classical, some jazz. I'm pretty much all over the map because I
find if I sit and listen to something that jars me at first, I find
something I like about it. Bands/Artists: John Mayer, Ari Hest,
Band of Skulls, Nickel Creek, St. Vincent, Blue October, Kan Wakan,
Doomtree, Grieves, Passenger, James Vincent McMorrow, Skillrex,
Kinny, Wallflowers, Matisyahu, Prince, Blakroc, Haim, Crosses,
Bahamas, Alabama Shakes, The Used, Reema Datta, Youn Sun Nah, Kings
of Leon, The Raconteurs, Pixies, Johhny Cash, and on and on and on
Food) My plethora of likes here also make it hard for me to choose.
I romanticize vegetarianism and veganism, and have been vegetarian
for at least a couple of years at one point. I'm back to meat these
days, but am trying to find my balance. I can swing either way of
the food spectrum. Bottom line, though, I love trying great food. I
do wish the portions were served smaller here. I wish it were
getting the most bang for your fork, not for your dollar. New unit
of measurement please! Stuffs: Juicing, Fruit, Sushi, Farmhouse
Ales, Pinot Noir, Dark Chocolate, Lil' bites, Jerky, Thai iced tea,
Pad Thai, Lou Malnati's, water, coffee, espresso, *sparkling water.
