I program for a living and wouldn't have it any other way. It can be stressful but programming is what I've always wanted to do since I was writing games for my TI-82 calculator back in middle school.
I love good food and good beer which are in no shortage here in Seattle. I could always use sometime to go on food adventures with me.
I'm love the music scene here in Seattle and I go to plenty of shows. KEXP is a-maz-ing.
This next year I started TA'ing a class at Garfield. It's going well and the kids are great.
It always feels like I spend most of my summer at music festivals (Sasquatch, CHBP, Bumbershoot, Doe Bay).
For movies I'm always of a fan of Tarantino, Wes Anderson, Coen Brothers. Synecdoche, New York. Eternal Sunshine. Documentaries. Korean films. French films. Broken Lizard guys.
Louie. My GOD have you been watching Louie? Louis CK does the whole thing himself (down to editing) and has complete creative control. So funny and yet so poignant. Nothing like it. I love sketch comedies. I love watching any UCB, Mr Show or Whitest Kids U Know sketch. I've seen every Seinfeld and Curb Your Enthusiasm episode. Eastbound and Down. Jon Benjamin Has a Van. Some dramas. Game of Thrones, Breaking Bad, The Sopranos.
Radiohead. I've grown up with their albums and each new one blows me away. Seriously, In Rainbows is my desert island album. Sufjan Stevens is amazing, amazing, amazing. I've always had a soft spot for singer/songwriters and he's at the top of the list. Jack White is genius. White Stripes songs were among some of the first I ever learned to play on guitar. Simple chords but amazing songs. Andrew Bird! I'd give anything to be able to whistle and play the violin like that. Bands whose music I've been listening to over a decade like Pavement, Modest Mouse, The Flaming Lips. Built To Spill. Some modern folky stuff like The Tallest Man on Earth, Cave Singers and more pop-folky like Of Monsters and Men. Girl Talk (Got to see him at Chop Suey years ago. Insane). The Antlers. etc...
Day to day I try to be good and stick to white meat but damn if I don't love a good steak. And anything from a pig, natures most delicious animal. Don't let that scare you off if you're a vegetarian though. I love veggie food too but we're talking about my indulgences here. Chocolate is so good. Anything with cream or dairy is inevitably delicious.
Other very important, weighty matters.
