Books: I like to read and usually have a few books going. A few of
my favorite subjects are philosophy, history, nutrition,
nature/wildlife, art, computer animation, architecture, and
photography. I read the New York Times regularly and find that I
can only handle so much of the news.
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 recently have been rewatching Miyazaki's
animated films which are incredible. Enjoyed 'Oblivion' not too
Food: I eat a very healthy diet. Meat and veg from organic, pasture
raised, local sources whenever possible, and steer clear of dairy
and gluten. Which essentially boils down to the 'paleo' diet. 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 actually don't have a TV at the moment, which has been
fine, so I can't really say much about shows. I'm not anti-TV or
anything, just notice that when it's not on I do more interesting
things with my time. I stream anything that I could ever wish for
with Netflix, Hulu, etc... I like going to comedy clubs and
listening to little hole in the wall music acts. 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 enjoyed them very
much. I was pretty blown away by Mozart's 'Don Giovanni' that the
Portland Opera performed. I also saw 'Wicked' in San Francisco and
thought it was amazing.
