In the foothills, I spend a lot of time out in nature, walking in the forest, gardening.
This question is actually somewhat hard for me. I'm professionally average. I'm a jack of all trades handyman, and I specifically try to get a broader understanding of a wider number of skills, and I tend to not devote the time it takes to become a true master of any one thing. I'm OK at a wide variety of skills, but truly good? I'm not sure how to quantify that.
For movies, science fiction and fantasy action are always a big thing, as well as some action films and romantic comedies. Anything from Starwars to Mr.Right. Some classics really stick with you...Dr Strangelove, especially when you realize what affect that film had on the discourse over Atomic weapons, and the real changes in how atomic weapons are handled.
Shows? I've been watching just about every comic book based TV series on broadcast and netflix. The Exspanse is almost as good as the books. NCIS. Code black.
Music is kinda a place where I've stagnated, I developed a love for metal and punk, especially Irish punk. I enjoy a lot of electronic music. But I really can't sit down and dive into bands, I listen to what's around me, I toss up pandora stations based on Electric Six or Gogol Bordelo, or Flogging Molly. Then I pull a sub-station from some band I've never heard of, and when I get sick of that, I pull off of that.
For food...this used to be a place where "I'm pretty simple, tacos, burgers, etc" and that's very much still true. I love the basics. I prefer food trucks to fine dining. But that's not really the whole story. I enjoy a nice potroast with a home baked loaf of crusty bread more than just about anything, really. Pasta. Chicken soup.
Really, a couple changes of clothes, my camera, and a laptop, and I can go anywhere. Everything else is just a convenience.
In a recent purge, this is really the only section that barley changed. It used to be an MP3 player, now a cellphone handles that need and so many others.
Now, I'm wondering about what else I should get over and past. I gave up on photography years ago, and I'm thinking that's my next step. I need to start taking my camera everywhere again, taking more photos of the beautiful world, and the wonderful people in it. Old ghost towns, abandoned buildings, national parks.
You think I sound interesting and want to grab a bite and a beer, when I'm down in the bay.
