I've been in a few bands. Play guitar, mostly originals,
alternative/indie. Can write a song, playing around more with
lyrics, used to just write music. After saying that I feel safe
saying this: I really love classical music. A couple of weeks ago
someone put a random piece of sheet music in front of me and within
a few minutes I'd figured out that it was about a third of the way
through the recapitulation of the first movement of Mozart's Piano
Sonata No. 18 in D Major K. 576. I'm that bad. I like noisy
electric guitars, but I also like picking apart Beethoven string
quartets and Mahler symphonies. One of my favorite pieces is Berg's
violin concerto. But I like Nick Drake a lot too, and Nirvana. One
of my ex's said some of the songs I wrote sound like Neil Young. I
really like the music from Venice around 1600. I like Perotin a
lot. The only Hip-Hop I have in my music collection is some heavily
Indian influenced stuff from Bollywood. One of my favorite albums
is Five Leaves Left by Nick Drake. Richard Strauss'
Four Last Songs is probably my favorite vocal piece,
especially the song Beim Schlaffengehen. I also really
like the song Breed on Nevermind a lot. Names:

Mary Austin, John Muir, Aldo Leopold, Terry Tempest Williams and
For TV I watch PBS a lot. Star Trek, Dr. Who, Nova, Nature, Being
Human. Netflix tends towards science documentaries and really old
