The first things people usually notice about me
I'm not as boring as I look. You'll find I love trying new things, meeting new people, exploring new places.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: Love the classics but don't find myself reading them too often anymore. When it's not meh serial fiction (think: Follet, Grisham, DeMille) it's usually: Cormac McCarthy, Hunter S. Thompson, and assorted works of the Beats (read: anything which tries to uncover the real American Dream). I read nonfiction more often, especially topics like history, politics, or travel/exploration.

Music: Big fan of independent music. Especially indie rock. Artists I've latched onto over the last few years: the Decemberists, LCD Soundsystem, M83, Santigold, Neko Case and by extension the New Pornographers (which grew into recent appreciation of AC Newman), Ryan Adams, A Perfect Circle, Sleigh Bells. Also a pretty big fan of Jazz, particularly Monk and Coltrane, but I admittedly don't know enough to really appreciate it. Also a fan of classical music.

Shows: Big fan of almost everything HBO has done. Favorites: The Wire, Boardwalk Empire, Treme, True Blood, Game of Thrones, Band of Brothers, The Pacific, John Adams and all their documentaries. Otherwise, I'm a fan of The West Wing, Top Gear, Archer, Always Sunny in Philadelphia, South Park, Family Guy.

Film: Big fan of indie cinema - often find myself at the Nickelodeon Theater. Otherwise: I love just about anything the Coen Brothers or Tarantino do, I grew up with Stephen Spielberg movies like Jurassic Park and Saving Private Ryan, seem to have always liked: the Godfather, Goodfellas, Citizen Kane, Big Lebowski, High Fidelity, The Evil Dead, Layer Cake, Snatch ... this could take all day (read: there's a lot more than time I have to mention them).

Food: Love good food paired with excellent beer/wine. I'm adventurous and love trying new things. I always love: Indian, Thai, Italian, Mexican, as well as awesome American fare (think: buffalo wings, inventive burgers, BBQ, and southern comfort foods).
The six things I could never do without
The First Amendment, the ability to kick a soccer ball, a healthy mind, Crimson Tide football (I'm originally from Bama), caffeine, the interwebs.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How the world could be a better place (or more often: how I could be a better person.)
On a typical Friday night I am
Having drinks with friends. Locales include porches, bars, house shows.
