Other favorites authors I have are:
Orsen Scott Card
Robert Pirsig (Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance is my favorite book of all time)
I'd say my favorite kind of movies are spy thrillers, but I'm not too picky when it comes to movies.
Some of my favorite directors are:
My Musical taste is pretty eclectic. Since I'm a horn player I'm partial to anything that has horns in it. I'm really into afrobeat at the moment but I'm also passionate about New Orleans brass bands, old school funk and soul, jazz, and samba. I don't follow top 40 radio at all really. I'll probably recognize a song if you sang it to me but I wouldn't be able to tell you who wrote it or anything.
Lately I've mostly been listening to podcasts. I really like Radiolab, Freakonomics, Wits Radio, Wait Wait Don't Tell Me, Afropop Worldwide and The Dirtbag Diaries.
You have tomboyish tendencies.
You should message me if you think you might actually want to hang out at some point. :)
