Life is funny. The last few months have seen some major changes for me. I guess I was looking for a new adventure...Army lawyer seemed to fit the bill, so here I am...and wouldn't you know it, I got stationed in Seoul right out of the gate! I know next to nothing about my new home and would love to meet some new people to help me find my way around this incredible city.
I'm kidding, I have no idea. I've been told sense of humor, but how should I know - I don't recall ever meeting me.
Books. A few of the most recent: A Devil in the White City, W.B. Yeats - Selected Poems, Killer Angels, Shipping News, War. I'm also making my way through the Dragon Tattoo series, which I really enjoy so far.
Movies. High Fidelity, Scent of a Woman, American History X, The Shawshank Redemption, PCU, SLC Punk, Trainspotting, Garden State, anything by Wes Anderson, Reservoir Dogs, Inglorious Basterds, City of God, Boondock Saints, The Big Lebowski, Band of Brothers. I watch a lot of movies and love most genres. If anyone has any suggestions for some independent, hole-in-the-wall, art house theaters around here, I would be very interested.
Music. The first CD I ever bought with my own money was Better than Ezra - Deluxe. My father, an incredible musician and total hippie at heart, was horrified at my selection. So, the next day he purchased for me Led Zeppelin - I, Black Sabbath - Paranoid, and James Gang - #49.
Needless to say, I have never looked back...sincerest apologies to Ezra.
Lately...Pogues, Johnny Cash, and Black Star. Also Stones, Iggy, Modest Mouse, Iron & Wine, Death Cab, Postal Service, Primus, Dead Kennedys, Bad Religion, Interpol, The Distillers, Neko Case, Stray Cats, the RHH, Dropkick Murphys, Rilo Kiley, Atmosphere, The Von Bondies, Danger Mouse, Jimi, Janis, the Who, Velvet Underground, Dylan, Elton John, Mumford & Sons, Florence + The Machine, and the Wailin Jennys. I love going to see shows, finding new artists, and playing music with friends.
Food. Anything and everything. Pho, Japanese, Indian, Thai, street tacos, etc. Also, I've been meaning to try Ethiopian.
