Okay ... (long breath) ...
Books: I'm a huge fan of (fiction) Kurt Vonnegut, Thomas Pynchon,
Patrick O'Leary, David Eggers, Hunter S. Thompson, J. G. Ballard,
Tolkein, Irvine Welsh (and translating Irvine to English), Joe Meno
(nonfiction) Julian Jaynes, Richard Dawkins (on evolutionary
biology, but not on theology), Hunter S. Thompson, Antonio DiMasio,
Brad Warner, Paul Ekman, Sun Bear.
People often say "you have more books than anyone I know."
Super-smart literary nerds even. I dig that.
Movies: Apocalypse Now, Blade Runner, the Fountain, Wristcutters
(oddly, the least dark of the bunch) and 28 Days Later (because,
damnit, Danny Boyle). It seems no one on here likes horror films,
and that's really pretty disappointing.
Shows: Just went to see Evil Dead: The Musical. My only regret is
we didn't get there early enough to sit in the splatter zone.
Music: Hrmmmm. Right now I'm listening to Fitz and the Tantrums ...
and I guess I was a big rivethead back in the day, but now it's
kinda hard to describe what I like. No young country, no ICP. Other
than that, I know it when I hear it.
Food: I recently learned to really cook decently, and though I'm
loving it, it's really ruined a lot of restaurants for me. It's
made me into a horrible foodie.
