I like an almost impossibly diverse collection of books and films
which cause me to wonder, realize, laugh and sometimes cry. I've
written a few books for myself, have worked on a bunch of movies,
have hundreds of favorites, and I elected to decline electronic
billboard reception about 10 years ago.
I like all sorts of good music, doesn't matter to me what it's name
is (thank you, Bill Graham), from jazz stylists like Duke
Ellington, Charlie Parker, Charles Mingus, Ahmad Jamal and Melody
Gardot, blues guitarists like Buddy Guy and Carlos Santana (what,
you haven't heard Carlos play the blues?), anything truly soulful -
Motown and the great r&b that followed that,
singer/song-writers the Beatles, Dylan, the Band, the Dead, Neil
Young, Springsteen and Frank Zappa.
And I tend to like the abundant bounty of locally produced,
organic, fresh and tasty food that's becoming increasingly
available to us here. Yum.
