And unwittingly gaining weight...
Book - The Song of Ice and Fire series by George R. R. Martin. (Still haven't watched a single episode of the TV series.) As well as The Godslayer Chronicles series by James Clemens. Also, I am thankful that Brandon Sanderson finally finished off the very long and, at times, somewhat dull Wheel of Time series originally written by the late Robert Jordan. In the meantime, I am re-reading the Dune series by Frank Herbert (<-- Pure Genius) and just completed the quick yet very entertaining Ready Player One by Ernest Cline.
Movie - John Woo's Hard Boiled starring Chow Yun-Fat is currently in my DVD Player. Which followed: Snatch, LoTR, Serenity, Firefly, Caddyshack, The Whole Nine Yards, Syriana, Thank You for Smoking. Spaceballs holds a very special place in my heart.
Show - I recently used the serialized retelling of the Arthurian tale, titled Merlin, as a means to induce sleep. Which has nothing to do with my strong recommendation that others watch it. Farscape was a very fun and terribly sexy journey, yes sexy, even with Jim Henson's puppeteers behind the scenes. Which followed: Caprica and a multitude of Funimation licensed anime. Also, I religiously watch (that is to say that I watch when it benefits me yet claim to do so daily) several netcasts on the TWiT Network. As mentioned above: I have yet to see Game of Thrones. I am currently having a philosophical debate within myself about how kosher it is to write TV scripts based on extremely popular books in a series that you have yet to finish writing even though your unwittingly loyal biblio-fanatics are crying for completion...
Music - Varies greatly. From metal to jazz, classic rock to classical, and a sprinkling of several techno genres across the top. I once used Last.fm (same username) to serve my varied aural diet, but now Google Play Music has proven itself far more capable of cooking me up a tuned feast.
Food - Pan-Asian. Something about the artistry and Ayurveda-like beliefs that make it so much fun to create. But really, as an aspiring chef, I do it all and thrive on the challenge of half stocked pantry mad science.
• Freedom (Both existentially and literally)
• Honesty (In myself as well as others)
• Conversation (Deep or drunken)
• Food (For motivation and passion as well as sustenance)
Why can't I create more hours in a day and more days in a week so I can actually do all the activities I want to do?
Where did all the flowers go?
What am I still doing in bed?!
When am I going to find time for a table top RPG?! and...
Who's going to join me?
For the first time in almost 20 years I have landed a job which does not necessarily require me to work on Friday nights. I simply don't know what to do with myself. Suggestions are welcome.
I am very Sex Positive, a friend of the Kink and LGBTQ communities, and am very much in love with my Girlfriend with whom I have an open-relationship that which is stronger and healthier than the decade-long monogamous marriage I was once beholden to.
