Musica-lots, Arcade Fire, The National, Grizzly Bear, Modest Mouse,
My Morning Jacket, Lumineers, Iron & Wine, Band of Horses, St
Vincent, Friendly Fires, Ray Lamontagne, Cut Copy, Passion Pit,
Empire of the Sun, Ben Howard, The XX, Bon Iver, Ghostland,
Mumford, Edward Sharp ... ya know, and some old school stuff New
Order, Radiohead, U2, Zeppelin, Pink Floyd, Bob Marley ...
And some Latin American stuff, Carlos Vives, Soda Estereo, Juanes,
Buena Vista Social Club, Gipsy Kings, Mano Chao ...
But I'm always open to anything, live classical music or opera can
be an amazing experience ...
Books- I didn't read as much growing up, but later found reading
very stimulating, early on was facinated by magical realism -
Gabriel Garcia Marquez stuff, but later became more interested in
business, systems or thought provoking type of material - Malcolm
Gladwell's Blink & Outliers, fascinating and others like Good
to Great ... I know, boring to some but at the end of the day
Movies-I'm all over the map here, anything with Bob DeNiro, Al
Pacino, Jack Nicholson ... Well maybe not everything but mostly
their oldies, One flew over the Cuckoo's Nest, Heat, Awakaning,
Taxi Driver, Midnight Run, comedies are great but NOT another Will
Ferrell or Adam Sandler movie, sorry but no mas!
Love a good foreign film and find that the great ones fly under the
radar all the time.
Abre Los Ojos was a Spanish film, where the idea for Vanilla Sky
TV-College Football. Anything else is a waste of time :)
Food-Anything, I grew up in two kitchens, so I am open to quite a
few options, enjoy cooking my South American specialties, but also
some traditional Americano stuff.
