For someone as positive and upbeat an I am, I tend to like my
entertainment dark. Typically things that explore the human
condition when put under the stress of the pending apocalypse.
Movies/show like Children of Men, Twelve Monkeys, The Walking Dead,
District 9, Jericho, Battlestar Galatica. I have been told I should
read The Road, but that seems a little too cheerful for me.
My music taste hasn't progress much since the mid 90's, and even
then I tended to like more class rock. I like The Doors, the
Stones, and of course Zepplin and Floyd. From the 80's I like The
Police and Rush. I got into some of the grunge craze in the 90's,
but I haven't really found anything decent since then. I will
occasionally go see Chris Smither in concert when he stops by
Wolftrap. And one of my DC friends will sometimes drag me out to
9:30 or the Black Cat to see an old punk band.
As far as food goes, the more exotic the better. I could do without
the Olive Gardens and Fridays of the world. Mexican (at least a
good Mexican place) is a bare minimum, any asian, Indian, central
american, Turkish, Ethiopian all work for me.
