SHOWS: I really liked Shameless, Weeds, Breaking Bad, and Sons of Anarchy. Haven't watched much of anything lately though. There's nothing on. And I just cut the cord and dropped cable. So there's Netflix. Which I rarely have time for. Although I binged on "Hell on Wheels" last weekend and it's pretty good.
FAV MOVIES: Airplane!; Caddyshack; Fast Times at Ridgemont High; Cool Hand Luke; Office Space; The African Queen; No Country for Old Men; Dumb & Dumber; Deliverance; Gumball Rally; Pulp Fiction; The Godfather; Inglorious Basterds; Blood Diamond; Fargo; Meatballs!; My Cousin Vinny; Contact; the James James Bond series of movies
FOOD: I don't think animals should be killed for our mere culinary pleasure, so I do my best to avoid animal flesh. No cow, pig, lamb, etc. I'm not a nutcase about it, but I do my what I can. Every life matters. Thai, Indian, Japanese, Mexican; and Italian are my favs (esp pizza from Roberta's In Bushwick!); craft beer (esp Matilda by Goose Island)
MUSIC: Led Zep, Soundgarden, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Pink Floyd, Wolfmother, the Doors, Steely Dan, AC/DC, Nirvana, Hall & Oates, Steely Dan, White Stripes, Rage Against the Machine, Black Sabbath, BeeGees, Rush, Guns 'n' Roses, Rolling Stones, Rod Stewart/the Faces, etc.
Something to read
Animals' plight. Or, more accurately, our willingness to ignore the torture and murder of animals so that we can enjoy the fleeting pleasure of eating their flesh. If I was king, I'd ban all killing of animals for food. We'd get over it. We don't need hot dogs, steak, pulled pork, lamb chops, hamburgers, chicken parm, etc. We just don't. Ugh. :-(
Massive income inequality in the U.S.
Water and air pollution and global warming.
Meeting someone nice. As in kind. And funny. Who is single. And attracted to me. I worry that's never going to happen. It's a lonely world out there. Gotta change that.
If you like what you've read, shoot me a message. If I think there might be a spark, we'll meet for a drink and/or a bite to eat. Thx!
