And I read a lot, mostly philosophy.
Sometimes they notice that I have my own theme music like Peter Griffen when he made a strange 2nd wish in that episode where he found a genie and made a strange 2nd wish. It's usually just the derby, though.
Movies: Across The Universe, Igby Goes Down, Harvard Man, Eulogy, Eternal Sunshine, anything by Wes Anderson, The Crow, V for Vendetta, Grandma's Boy, and The Adventures of Pete & Pete on DVD. A lot more too - I totally dig film. I just don't get horror movies.
Music: As far as playing is concerned, I consider myself a funk drummer but play more in the way of blues/reggae/jazz stuff.
As for listening, The Beatles are eternally at #1, and Jeff Buckley is a very close 2nd. I really dig anything that's played with passion so long as it has some sort of musical merit - can't really claim to listen to: death-metal, gangsta-rap, mindless pop, or mainstream country.
Foods: I do eat meat. I dig hard on Italian, Mexican, Continental, most asian cuisines, and anything that doesn't come across as particularly cruel or unusual.
The six things I could do without
My cellphone, fast-food, pop-culture, Fox News, penalties for victimless crimes, snakes.
Or if you've ever found yourself atop the Eiffel Tower with no recollection of how you got to France.
And if you have an interesting story to tell - then tell me. I don't care who you are or what the story is, I just like being entertained. If it's a happy story then so much the better. Happy drug story - even better still. Just send me something to read. Besides, I could use inspiration and guidance for my current project.
