I consider myself a movie guy and I tend to prefer either pre 70's
or recent indie movies. In the last five years I have seen maybe
five big budget movies that I liked and I watch a ton of movies.
And because I grew up on Carlin, Pryor, Radner, Martin, Hicks, and
Murphy every single Will Ferrell movie makes me want to slap the
the taste out of his mouth.
Vanishing Point. Casablanca. Dr. Strangelove. The Bad and the
Beautiful. Time Bandits. The Quiet Man. Miyezaki. Hong Kong crime
dramas. John Wayne. Lana Turner. Ride the
. And of course my favorites, three am insomnia driven
cult flicks. "Repo man never sleeps".
As for books I quite literally(see what I did there) don't leave
the house without one. I read when I smoke, when I eat, if I am
doing anything that doesn't require two hands I am reading. I

Music is a loaded question. I listen to everything from Slayer to
Glenn Miller. I hated living in Nashville and all of the music that
comes out of it. But I tend to be alt country and Americana. Most

Growing up on really bland food and in some cases really disgusting
food I learned how to cook out of self defense. And I love to cook
but rarely cook for myself unless I feel like biscuits and gravy on
a Saturday Morning. The only international foods I haven't tried
are Laotian, south east African, and from eastern Europe. So far
the only one I haven't liked is Filipino. And I like spicy food
from time to time especially if I can convince the waiter to bring
me what they consider spicy not bland American spicy. Recently I've
been obsessed with making kimchi and cheddar papusas but I can't
find a decent korean market nearby. I might have to make a trip to
LA just for that.
