In general: anything strangely beautiful or beautifully
o Food: I'm an adventurous eater: I even eat vegetables
o Music: My music tastes are all over. I find there's something to
enjoy about every kind. Some favorites: Flaming Lips, The Dirty
Projectors, Silent Way, Jazz Mafia, Bill Evans, Brad Mehldau,
Phish, The Bad Plus, Chillwave, Reggie Watts, Sufjan Stevens.
Minimalist electronica at night. Reggae, dub and bluegrass on a
sunny day. Jazz any time. I enjoy squeezing out the fun from music
that makes other people squirm like oldies, country, 80's, jam
bands and experimental noise.
o Books: I Am That, Chogyam Trungpa, Tarthang Tulku, Borges, Tom
Robbins, usually non-fiction
o Art: Sol Le Witt, Andre Breton, Dada, Op-Art, Collage
o Movies: Groundhog Day (a buddhist movie!), Eternal Sunshine of
the Spotless Mind, Adaptation, Memento, documentaries of the
o Shows: Mostly listen to music, but sometimes unwind with
something at the end of the night - Colbert, Mad Men, Treme, 30
Rock, Curb Your Enthusiasm, TED, cooking shows. Follow 49ers,
Ravens and Eagles in the fall.
o Countries: Bali, Cambodia, Nepal, Morocco, Singapore, Germany,
Austria, Mexico many times, Korea, Japan, Taiwan, Vietnam, Canada,
Thailand, Spain and...Canada
o Not regular, but do enjoy: tennis, biking, swimming,
I believe in the aphorism "dance like no one's looking".
