Books- usually non-fiction, politics, history, economics, etc. but
I will totally nerd out to A song of Ice and Fire, stormlight
archive and Kurt Vonnegut. Hunter S. Thompson, Mark Twain, Chuck
Pahlahniuk, and the beat writers.
Movies - don't really like a particular genre, watch alot of
documentaries, dramas, the occasional comedy.
Music - the Grateful Dead, Otis Redding,Isley Brothers ,old school
r&b, bluegrass, funk, reggae, hip hop, psych rock, anyone who
is fun live. Figure this is gonna be the same for a lot of people
So, Austin local bands I dig:
Deadeye, A live one, PEQ, Jabarvy, Dimitri's Ascent, The Trim,
DYE4, Estelline, Nameless Horses, Matt Hubbard, Flounders without
Eyes, Caliyope, Transcontinental Trip, the Black Angels, ghost
wolves, plenty more, but I'm drawing a blank right now..
