I just finished touring the country with a Broadway musical, and am moving to Vegas at the beginning of July. When I get to town I'll definitely need someone to show me around, so if you know where to play nickel blackjack or where you can buy a Coors Light for less than $9, give me a shout!
Movies: I appreciate a "great" movie, but generally I just want to laugh, so I tend to watch a lot of "immature" comedies. I also kinda love the original Star Wars trilogy. Sue me.
Food: I enjoy a nice meal. I really enjoy having a bbq or firing up a smoker. Unfortunately, that's not been an option lately. C'est la vie.
Music: Alright, here comes a rant. (Remember, I warned you..) I love music. I've dedicated my life to music and truly appreciate great music no matter the genre. That said, I'm really tired of people who say, "I love ALL kinds of music!" Then go on to list 4 types of contemporary pop music. (But then say they hate country music, which is silly, because anymore it's just pop music with cowboy boots.)
Music is so much more than that. If you think you don't like classical music, or that opera is boring, or that jazz is confusing, or whatever, well, I'll bet the only time you've ever heard those styles was when you went to some concert at your college to get credit in your music appreciation class. Or maybe you've NEVER actually gone to the symphony, or the opera, or to hear a great jazz musician. Do yourself a favor, go hear a GREAT group play a concert. And pay attention to it. You may have to focus a little more to appreciate a Mahler Symphony than you do at a Lady Gaga concert (there simply isn't as much stimulus) but I PROMISE you it's worth it.
I'm not saying that everyone should LOVE classical music, or jazz, or whatever. I'm just saying that if you think you "love all styles of music," but don't include those. Well, maybe reevaluate...
All that said, if Sweet Home Alabama comes on the radio, I turn it up.
Also, if we have different answers to the "Stale is to Steal" question. To me the answer is obvious, but I see another one so often that I can't help but wonder if I'm missing something. Please tell me what I'm missing...
