Eat World, Linkin Park, Silversun Pickups, Nancy Ajram, Niyaz,
Sha'abi music from Egypt, Rai from NW Africa, Persian pop, Katy

football these days, but definitely music and song writing lessons.

You like tall cultural guys and can talk about all sorts of
different subjects. Really like ladies who can speak other
