I'd say that one thing I want to do all my life is explore. Obviously traveling is one of my favorite ways of doing this, but I don't get too many opportunities for that. Hopefully I'll get more chances to travel far and wide in the years to come.
Every now and then I'll be out and about in Fargo/Moorhead. I grew up in Moorhead, so it figures that I like to return there on occasion.
- Random bits of knowledge -- I would call it trivia, but sometimes these bits of knowledge can be helpful and non-trivial.
- Being honest
- Being considerate
- Expressing my thoughts
- Navagating. Well, sort of. I have a great sense of direction, a mediocre sense of distance, and a fairly good memory of places. It adds up to me becoming fairly familiar with the layout of any area in which I regularly frequent.
- Making mango salsa.
- Ranting about/culturally analyzing music. To be honest, mostly the ranting part, but I figure that it involves analyzing as well.
I do wear glasses, sometimes people comment on that.
Movies: Lord of the Rings, Godfather (sure enough), Pulp Fiction, Caddyshack, Goodfellas, Monty Python and the Holy Grail,Inglorious Basterds, and Walk Hard:The Dewey Cox Story.
Lots of people include TV shows as well, so here goes: Futurama,Mystery Science Theater 3000 (my favorite show of all time),The Drinky Crow Show,Tim and Eric Awesome Show,Shin Chan,Boondocks,Check it Out! With Dr. Steve Brule. Yep, that's a lot of Adult Swim shows, what can I say!
Music: Here goes. Very eclectic, but mostly Rock based. Beatles, U2, Pink Floyd, Phish, Yes, various Motown musicians, Eric Clapton, Laura Nyro, Queen, Of Montreal, Summer Hymns, Belle and Sebastian, Super Furry Animals. A good chart of my musical preferences can be found at my Last.fm account:
Oh, I almost forgot. I like some classical music/art music (whatever you want to call it) as well. I like many of the obviously familiar composers like Mozart and Beethoven; in addition, several composers from Eastern Europe, particularly Dvorak and Rimsky-Korsakov. I tend to like orchestral music the most, along with chamber music that features woodwind instruments.
Foods: fresh bread, steak, fish, pork chops, citrus fruits, cherries, mangoes, corn, green beans, tabouli, tons of other food items. In terms of general types of cuisine, I like Thai, Indian, Meditteranean, and Jamaican foods. I used to love Chinese food, and still like it, just not as much.
3. Social Contact
5. Love (in the broadest sense)
I also spend time thinking about politics. My knowledge of policy is still rather limited, but I am extremely fascinated with elections and electoral strategy. Keep this in mind: I have a strong political bias (I support the election of liberal Democrats), and I'm not apologetic about it.
On a lighter note,I also think about pop culture a lot (especially in the areas of film and music). While I'm not as "top 10" list obsessed as the characters in High Fidelity, sometimes I do think up such lists.
