I'm studying with a Dr. in San Francisco who has her PHD in Positive Psychology. She developed a program called The Happiness Makeover/Positive Leadership Program. Working with her was a game changer for me and I look forward to adding teaching this program and helping people lead happier more positive lives to my repertoir.
I'm an artist and a healer and a little bit of a poet. I build stuff. I am experientially motivated and materially inspired.
Movies... I go by the motto: Any science fiction is good science fiction. other than that...Directors- Peter Greenaway, Jean Pierre Jeunet, the Cohen's, Katherine Bigelow, that aussie guy... specific films... that come to mind just now, Pumpkin, Northfork, Fifth Element, That cute one a couple years ago that was just the girls name but it was a double entendre....? Almost Famous, Kissing Jessica Stein, Serendipity, Tomb Raider, Underworld.... recently really enjoyed 'Insurrection'. Oh, and remember 'Vanilla Sky'? That was good. Most recently.. have you seen 'Sucker Punch'? Wow.
Music: Gothiccowpunkindustrialelectronicashoegazerariatoccattafolk-y. If you've never heard it on the radio, I'm probably listening to it. More beats than not lately. Trip hop, glitch hop, psyphy and melodic dubstep. Still love falling asleep to Mazzy Star or Cocteau Twins and Cat Power. But to get fired up gimme Revco or Bassnecter or Jantsen's glitchy breaks. Beats Antique covers all the basses of grooviness and Fever Ray takes me places. TIPPER!!! and really the whole bay area music scene is, well, just really really good! Also... I am a sucker for covers.
I love well prepared food and so many people do it so well in so many styles, but you really should come over for my o-toro tartare pillars with thai basil and lemongrass topped with caviar and flash pickled ginger served with a miso sake sauce. I make a mean pig in a blanket too. I endeavor to be more raw than not yet for a really comforting bowl of winter yumminess you can't go wrong with some dahl, squash and coconut milk. Though there is little that can compare to a piece of perfectly ripe fruit.
Friends who love you even when you're a junk show.
Expressions like 'junk show'.
