I'm also a huge fan of the late great comedian George Carlin.
Music: Live shows are important. I used to mainstream music but now
I use Pandora to listen to independent music like William Elliot
Whitmore, Flogging Molly, Lone Bellow Musikanto, Deer Tick, Khaled
and I'm discovering more everyday.
I also like mainstream music.
Fleetwood Mac is the best band in the world. I will punch you if
you say otherwise :) David Bowie, Bob Dylan, Incubus, Green Day,
Weezer, Metallica, Pink Floyd, and Prince, William Elliott
Whitmore, Dire Straits, Fitz and The Tantrums Franz Firzgerald, U2,
GARBAGE, Alter Bridge and Led Zeppelin are other favorites. MGMT
& The Ettes are two kick ass new bands I recently discovered. I
used to be one of those people that hated country music but I'm
starting to like some of it. I still hate most new country but I
like older country artist like Conway Twitty.
I'm also a HUGE fan of the radio show This American Life and I have
the TAL app for my iPhone.
Books: Love books.I'll read any book real or digital.
I just read Siddhartha, The Good Earth, and Fahrenheit 451 on my
spankin new Kindle. Currently re-reading Things Fall Apart.
Some of my favorite books are:
Any book by Douglas Adams
Food: I like almost any food I eat. I do have standards though.
Been getting more and more into Thai cuisine esp. the curry based
dishes. Always enjoy a steak or a good sandwich. Classic American
dishes like meatloaf and lasagna are my true weakness. And I won't
lose popularity points by saying I have a love affair with pizza.
Can't go wrong with Pie and Cake.
