I play guitar and am always writing/recording music. I used to live in Tallinn, Estonia and spent years as an ex-pat bouncing around Scandinavia and the rest of Europe working on whatever camera job I could find and busking on the street to make $... For better or worse I came back to LA a couple years ago.
October and March are my favorite months of the year. I'm an analog guy living in a digital world...
Music: I'm down with anything that sounds good. I've played in a lot of bands over the years and love everything from crazy experimental acid jazz to ancient Sumerian lyre music and even mantras... But personally I tend to play a lot of shoegazey post rock and folk music. Fav bands? Here's a few: Sigur Ros, Pink Floyd, My Bloody Valentine, Radiohead, Porcupine Tree, The Decemberists, AIR, Andrew Bird, tycho, Bonobo, Baths, Tool, Yann Tiersen, Elliott Smith, Led Zeppelin, The Mars Volta, Thievery Corporation, Flying Lotus, Miles Davis, Hendrix, The Flaming Lips, Jeff Buckley, Bob Dylan, Steve Reich, Elbow, Traffic, nirvana, Regina Spektor, Low End Theory Residents
Books: Anything by Salinger, Orwell, Palahniuk (well maybe not everything), Hemingway, Vonnegut, Kerouac, Dickens, Ginsberg, TS Elliot, or Fitzgerald... political philosophy + history books
Shows: The X-files (The latest season was disappoint though), Daily Show (at least until Jon Stewart's departure), Breaking Bad, the IT Crowd, Survivor Man, House of Cards, Ghost Adventures, Solving History, Seinfeld, Old episodes of the Simpsons and Arrested Development, and although I loathe reality TV, I have been known to binge out on Kitchen Nightmares...
Also how did the Egyptians build the pyramids and is Donald Rumsfeld actually a reptile?
Btw - If Ayn Rand is one of your favorite authors, please save your time and don't bother writing. I can tell you already that we won't get along if you like Atlas Shrugged.
