I went to my first TAM in vegas last year which was great fun.
When the weather is nice I like riding the motorcycle everywhere I can. There's room on the back if you are feeling adventurous.
I can sew buttons back onto things that have buttons and I'm learning to cook more.. I could use help/motivation here!
I put solar panels on the top of my townhouse.
I'm more apt to enjoy small social gatherings than large parties.. or crowded bars.. those just don't appeal to me as I rarely have more than a beer or two or glass of wine in an evening. A little grilling out with friends.. some music.. some poker.. a few adult beverages.. that's my idea of a fun friday night. Movie nights in on the couch and take-out are also good.
Weekends are for exploring.. road trips (I've not been to the San Juan islands yet) or sleeping in.. projects around the house.. going to a performance of some sort.
Learning how to make movies down in LA by shadowing a successful indie film maker.
Things I have been known to say at work:
"How many people have to tell you that's a bad idea before you will reconsider?"
"Let me stop you right there"
"There's no such thing as a temporary fix"
I like a lot of Carl Sagan: The Demon-Haunted World, Shadows of Forgotten Ancestors, The Dragons of Eden
Other favorites are: Influence: The Psychology of Persuasion, Thick Face Black Heart, Fate is the Hunter, Stiff, Terra Incognita, The Innovators Dilemma, The God Delusion
For movies.. I have lots of favorites:
Pan's Labyrinth, The Secretary, Dune, The Godfather, Dawn of the Dead, Poltergeist, Aliens (Game over man! Game over!), Leon, The Paper and pretty much anything by Quentin Tarantino
For music.. a pretty wide mix. The Heavy, Black Keys, Gary Clark Jr., The White Stripes, Imagine Dragons, Jimi Hendrix, Tom Petty, Bowling for Soup, Fall Out Boy, Beatles, Vanessa Daou, Dar Williams, Rebecca Loebe, AKUS, Norah Jones, Mila Drumke, Corinne Bailey Rae, Holly Cole, Jacqui Naylor, Diana Krall
Based on previous experiences you probably Shouldn't message me if:
You think it's plausible that man and dinosaurs were around at the same time (the Flintstones view of history) as presented at the Creation Museum in Petersburg KY. Or you think the Earth is 4000 years old.
You feel as if you have a personal stake in the life of a reality show contestant.
You could quit (drinking|smoking|drugs) any time you wanted... but you just don't want to.
You are a militant vegetarian or would expect me to become one.
