I'm also a vegetarian. Have been for over twenty years.
My tastes in movies and music are many and varied. There's very little that I'm not interested in at some level and I enjoy seeking out new and interesting art forms.
Though born and raised Jewish, I did drift. I appreciate Buddhism, Paganism, and Eastern approaches to life.
I am literate, goofy, and a punslinger
Used to volunteer at an animal rescue on the east side. Now, living on the west side with the cat I rescued from where I used to work. Good times.
The old pulp fictions are fun too. H.P. Lovecraft, Maxwell Grant, Kenneth Robeson and I already mentioned Bob Howard.
Then there's the esoteric philosophy side of my little library: Crowley, Kenneth Grant, The Golden Dawn, John Dee, and Dion Fortune.
I also like literature and lit crit: James Joyce, Yeats, Foucault, Zizek, etc. I finally picked up a copy of War and Peace and am determined to get though it in this lifetime.
Movies: A mixed bag. Zombie films (walking not running zombies); the Italians, Fulci, Bava, Argento. I also love samurai films, Yojimbo, Ran, Sword of Doom are most festive. Some artsy fartsy directors I like include: Bergman, Fellini, and Kurosawa. I also love classic horror- Universal's monsters are just peachy-Karloff and Lugosi and Lon Chaney Sr. & Jr.
Music: Another mixed bag. Old punk, rock, classical, opera, Johnny Cash, Pogues, Ani Difranco, Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan, Diamanda Galas, Tom Waits, Dead Can Dance, etc.
Food: If it's veggie/vegan I'm all over it.
