Books: I like to read and usually have several things going. A few
of my favorite subjects are philosophy, history, nutrition, nature,
art, computer rendering, architecture, and photography. I read the
New York Times regularly and find that I enjoy news, and loathe
Music: I like lots of music, but have always centered around
Classical/Baroque (JS Bach, CPE Bach, Mozart, Handel..), Hip-Hop
(Tribe Called Quest, Hieroglyphics, Roots, Jurassic 5..), Punk/Ska
(Citizen Fish, Bad Religion, NOFX, Nomeanso, Operation Ivy),
Classic Rock (Led Zeppelin, Aerosmith, Rolling Stones...), and
Electronic music (love Space Station SOMA, Dubstep, and Breaks).
Rdio subscriber now, and wouldn't go back.
Movies: Love movies, and am always down to go. Recently watched all
of Wes Anderson's films. Beautiful and brilliant. I'm torn between
Moonrise Kingdom and Grand Budapest for my favorite.
Food: I eat a healthy diet. Meat and veg from organic, pasture
raised, local sources whenever possible, and steer clear of dairy,
gluten, and sugar for the most part (sounds like a blast huh!).
Which essentially boils down to the 'paleo' way. I enjoy cooking
and like to do so for others more than for me. Everyone has their
own thing going when it comes to dietary guidelines, which is
great. I like to hear about what works for people and am always
learning about nutrition. I love Mexican, Indian, Thai, Sushi,
Ethiopian, and anything spicy!
Shows: I avoid getting hooked on too many shows, because I will
never get any of the cool stuff done. I can stream anything that I
could ever wish for with Netflix, Hulu, etc... but to be honest, I
haven't turned my TV on in several weeks, and that is both common,
and kinda ideal really. I like going to comedy clubs and listening
to up and coming talent. I am a Bill Maher fan and love Eddie
Izzard, Monty Python, and the general British edge on humor. I have
been to a few operas and thought it was fun. I was pretty blown
away by Mozart's 'Don Giovanni' that the Portland Opera performed.
I also saw 'Wicked' in San Francisco awhile back (I guess that was
more than awhile ago haha!) and thought it was amazing.
