I enjoy embodying opposites. It may sound cliched, but without dark there simply can't be light. I train frequently and intensely for the sense of empowerment it gives, but also so that I can eat and drink what I please. In my estimation, one should do good to themselves so they can do bad to themselves. High level communication is key, but a person shouldn't be afraid to be ridiculous, play with language or drop some F bombs just to keep things interesting. Am I a lover or a fighter? Yep. One of them is a way of life, the other is simply a sport. Knowing both gives perspective. Planting seeds and sweating my ass off give me equal satisfaction, though obviously different types. I think those are sufficient examples for now...
Really: trying to live between the earth and sky
Brewing tasty and intoxicating beverages.
Sampling the various flavors of life!
Other books frequently pulled from my shelves: Radical Brewing, Mycelium Running, GGMM by Stamets, Pharmaka/poeia trilogy, Plants of the Gods, Choice Theory by Glasser, Being Human, Alchemical Psychology, some Haruki Murakami, the Tao te Ching.
I don't own a television, but do enjoy watching terrible movies on Netflix. Occasionally, I'll enjoy some more artistic films like The Big Lebowski. I've seen nearly every awful martial arts movie made. My movie watching is significantly more low brow than my literature choices. When I watch a movie, I want to be entertained, though occassionally I'll watch something more refined.
Music: The Band, Devendra Banhart, Beck, Modest Mouse, Paul Simon, Blackalicious, Old Crow Medicine Show, Donovan, the Dead, Die Antwoord, Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros, MGMT, Royksopp, Shpongle, Kruder and Dorfmeister, Boozoo Basjou, Little People, Amon Tobin, Bassnectar, The White Stripes, Led Zeppelin, Jackson C. Frank, The Doors.... Those are some of my pandora channels. Fairly eclectic, but I'm of the opinion that different moods and situations require different sounds.
Food: I'll eat anything that doesn't eat me first. Spicy food, particularly Asian, appeals to me greatly.
A nice beverage
Constant flow of knowledge
A deep bag of tricks
