I like biographies, textbooks, mostly non-fiction. Of course all
the prerequisites from youth: LOTR, Dune... so on and so forth.
Recently read Descartes Bones, that was interesting. I read Cat's
Cradle by Vonnegut, after enjoying Slaughterhouse 5. Kornwolf by
Tristan Egolf was great. I may have been a resident of Macondo
Estates in a past life. My daughter turned me on to The Hunger
Games trilogy. Very fun read, she and I compared notes when we
watched the latest movie.
I'm open to just about any movie. It's terrible because I tend to
become invested in a movie within the first 10 minutes, and I have
to see it through. Because of that I have watched many terrible
movies, and have no regrets. It's the commitophile in me. With that
said, Italian Neo-Realism is where it's at. The Bicycle Thief,
Nights of Cabria, and Vidas Seccas are at the top of my list.
With netflix it's great to be able to watch a whole series without
missing a show. Yup, I tend to binge watch a series that I like. I
recently watched Shameless(UK), and that was fantastic. I prefer
sci-fi, but will enjoy anything that is thought provoking. I love a
I'll be honest and say my music tastes have stagnated. I don't have
much new music in my life anymore. I do tend towards more punk and
classic rock. I am also fond of bluegrass and some country. I
generally avoid the over-marketed flavor-of-the-day type stuff.
Having said that, I would like more music in my life. Send me a
suggestion, and I'll give it a listen.
And here is what my iPod says: the transplants, tim armstrong,
sublime, the beatles, the doors, social distortion, red hot chili
peppers, this listing of shit is boring, offspring, nirvana, no
cash, minor threat, leftover crack, janis joplin, green day,
flogging molly, eagles, dropkick murphys, the distillers, cypress
hill, aggrolites and so on and so forth.
Food? I'm open to anything. I will say I am craving some cafeteria
food right now. Yes, that is odd, but I have fond childhood
memories associated with BIA(Bureau of Indian Affairs) cafeteria
food. I did the month of January as a vegetarian and that has set
me on path where I consume much less meat.
Local brews and local food. Once I get my backyard garden going
I'll have some truly local food.
