I grew up around here and did my BA at the Evergreen State College, in the usual History and Literature focus. I'm a total book nut, and it is really rare for a week to go by where I haven't finished at least one novel. Most of my time is spent working on some kind of project, either to fix up my house, make my car a bit better or just for the sake of building something!
I'm also a pretty decent cook, hand me a recipe and some ingredients and I can usually whip something up that tastes pretty awesome. Spaghetti with a meat sauce is my current specialty, but I really want to learn to cook bainghan bharta, an awesome eggplant curry thing that tastes amazing over rice.
TV: Warehouse 13, Castle and Top Gear. Mystery Science Theater 3000 is also awesome beyond words and probably responsible for most of my odd sense of humor today. I also started watching Brooklyn 99, which is hilarious, and Supernatural because friends would not stop talking about it.
Movies: The Good, the Bad and the Ugly, Casablanca, Indiana Jones, Evil Dead. Fun, dramatic or goofy all work for me. My current favorite flick is The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou, standing neck and neck with Pan's Labyrinth.
Music: Metal (Iron Maiden, Sabbath, Hammerfall, Tyr, Manowar or anything with awesome guitar riffs) Classic rock ( Hendrix, SRV, Deep Purple, Frijid Pink, Lynyrd Skynyrd, etc.), Blues (BB King, Buddy Guy, Howlin' Wolf, Muddy Waters) and some classical/opera (Bach, Locatelli, Wagner). I've also started finding oddball things over at Rainy Day Records like ambient meditative rock and forgotten pop of bygone eras. Fun stuff!
