I read constantly, well, daily. Everything. Seriously, I'm big on it. Historical narratives, buddhist thought, classic literature, art theory, anatomy, nonfiction, self help and....yes book please. Just read this great book, Empire of the Summer Moon. Fall of Giants. Favorites? Anything by Gabriel Garcia Marquez, Ken Follett, Oscar Wilde, Don Norman.
Cinema is a huge influence on my creative soul. Film noir, old Hollywood golden age, neorealism, Tarantino, Rodriguez...art documentaries. I have a closet thing for modern musicals. Sin City, The Watchmen, Black Swan, Gilda, Rear Window, The Lady from Shanghai, Marie Antoinette, Elizabeth, shit there are to many..
I Love such wide array of music! I can't pick, there are thousands. Nat King Cole lives in my heart, as does most vocal jazz. If u can narrow it down one might consider broadening your spectrum. Love it live, whatever it is. Lately I've been listening to a lot of Phosphorescent, Arctic Monkeys, Emma Louise and Grimes...
I love foooood. fresh local anything,where ever I may be. I like to cook and eat. I will try anything, but I generally eat whole foods. I love meat. And veggies.
I try to always educate myself in all of the vast pleasures of the universe. I don't watch tv really, unless it's an hbo series. I'd rather be making something or exploring out in the world.
Overall, I like things to be classic, timeless and brilliant.
