I love the local music scene and am happy to offer suggestions if you're interested. I find I'm less of a home-body as I get older but shoot for at least one weekend a month where I don't get out of my pajamas. I guess my interests are pretty typical but I'm always up for trying whatever fun suggestions are out there - concerts, mixers, hiking, camping, etc. Music festivals are one of my favorite summer activities. I have two on the books so far with two tentative.
It allows me to have many great experiences that I feel I will be able to use in the future but I'm not going anywhere soon.
Movies: I don't think there is a specific genre of movie that I tend towards so I'll list some of the titles in my collection: Ghostbusters, Shawshank Redemption, Legends of the Fall, the Birdcage, My Fellow Americans, To Wong Foo: Thanks for Everything Julie Newmar, Rocky Horror Picture Show, Indiana Jones, SLC Punk, Bridesmaids. Apparently I own more comedies than dramatic films.
Television: I find myself getting sucked into bad reality documentaries lately (damn TLC) like Long Island Medium, Intervention, My Strange Addiction, No Reservations, Breaking Amish, What Not To Wear, The Soup. The only new sitcoms I really follow are Wilfred and Shameless, both are just twisted and I love them. The IT Crowd is classic - British comedies are fine by me!
Music: Where to start? Local bands include Hot Bodies in Motion, Cody Bebee & the Crooks, Carson & Tess Henley, Kris Orlowski, Allen Stone, Ben Union, Whiskey Syndicate, Camile Bloom, Andrew Vait/Eternal Fair, Motopony, Ivan & Alyosha, and The Local Strangers to name a few. Favorite all time artists are Hanson (yes, that Hanson), Colin James, and Tony Lucca not counting all the classic rock that I love like the Beatles, the Doors, and Led Zeppelin.
My life theme songs:
Bob Seger: Old Tim Rock 'n Roll
The Eagles: New York Minute
Billy Joel: Only the Good Die Young
Food: No preference! I like all food and am willing to try most things at least once. Indian, Mexican, Thai, pizza, and you can't beat a good steak and I believe pho cures all (especially hangovers).
