A loyal friend
Hungering for new knowledge & experience
A secular humanist
Always trying to be a better person
A friend to dogs & cats alike
A man of dry wit
Someone that’s proactive about trying to improve the human condition in whatever “small” way I can.
Movies? The Big Lebowski, Monty Python’s The Meaning of Life, The Dark Knight, Dangerous Liasons, The Way of The Gun
Shows? Breaking Bad, Dexter, Curb Your Enthusiasm, Carnivale, Louie, Game of Thrones, The Walking Dead, Mystery Science Theatre 3000 (I’ve been revisiting that show & it’s pretty damn witty) & Rifftrax.
I think I have a pretty diverse taste in music. I like some rap (not current club rap) such as Talib Kweli, Gang Starr, Jurassic 5, The Geto Boys, Eric B. & Rakim, old industrial music (Skinny Puppy, Pig, Ministry, Frontline Assembly, My Life With The Thrill Kill Kult), Aloe Blacc, Otis Redding, James Brown, Primus, Devo, Tim Booth, REM, Flight of The Conchords, James Brown (great wake up music!), Silverfish (I have a huge crush on Lesley Rankine, & think she has one of the best rock voices with lyrics to match), and Pink Floyd.
Saw Roger Waters in July ’12. BEST SHOW EVER!!!!
Food: I like Indian and Thai food a lot. I love a good steak (but eat them sparingly for health). Peter Chang’s in Glen Allen was one of the best meals I’ve had in a while.
2) Activism (I volunteer as an advocate for public health & legal policy surrounding issues of mental health)
3) The neuroscience underlying cognition
5) Hip hop (it’s like a booster/pro-drug for my coffee)
6) Moments to meditate, &/or exercise to remove the clutter out of my head.
