It's time for me to get a new book shelf, my current one is almost
full. A few of my recent favorites are: The Child Thief, Gone Girl,
Neverwhere, Shadow of the Wind, Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy,
The Thirteenth Tale, The Historian, Dark Places, City of Thieves,
The Wind-Up Bird Chronicles, House of Leaves, World War Z, Water
for Elephants, Geek Love, I Am the Messenger, Middlesex, The
Shinning, One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest, The Book of Lost Things.
I also enjoy reading biographies of Rock musicians. Everything
Hunter S. Thompson. This list goes on for a while. And I simply
adore zombie books.
My two favorite movies are Evil Dead 2 and The Princess Bride. This
is true. I also love documentaries and indie movies. The best story
telling is not done with money, it's done with heart. Remember
that. Hollywood forgot this and it makes me sad.

made for the History channel, and the Learning Channel.
I wouldn't call myself a 'foodie', but I do love great food. Sushi
is one of the things that I love to eat out, and I'm convinced that
I don't eat enough of it. I also admit that I need to branch out
and try new things. There are lots of places to try over here in
Did you read all the way to the bottom? Liar.
