Let's traverse a trail or play some tennis, or if it's foggy, shoot some pool in a pub with a good IPA. My favorite movies are classics but not always at the top of everyone's list. My musical tastes run from the Black Keys to Muddy Waters and almost everything in between. I'm clever, well-read and educated with a wry, sarcastic sense of humor and I bet I can make you laugh at least a couple of times on our first date. I'm also independent, but I enjoy the company of a smart and funny woman with a great smile. In the words of Mr. Waters, "I live the life I love and I love the life I live."
Tell No One
Life of PI
The Devil in the White City
Game of Thrones
All the Light We Cannot See
and almost everything written by Elmore Leonard
I love the live music in San Francisco, with my favorites being guitar rock, blues and reggae:
John Lee Hooker
Nathaniel Rateliffe and the Night Sweats
and anything by Jack White
I enjoy a good indie film at the theater along with any movie that has at least 80% on RottenTomatoes.com:
Lawrence of Arabia
Lost in Translation
Man on Wire
Requiem for a Dream
Searching for Sugarman
and almost everything by Woody Allen
I'm disappointed, no make that devastated, Breaking Bad is no more. The same thing happened when the Sopranos concluded so I suppose this too shall pass. I'm consoling myself with the fact that Walking Dead isn't half bad. I also recently tore through the first three seasons of House of Cards, and it was brilliant! Other than that, its mainly PBS for the News Hour, Frontline, as well as assorted documentaries. I'm also heartbroken that the Colbert Report is no more, but I'm giving his new show a shot. And I do watch college sports; Go Blue!
I just thought of one thing I won't eat, black licorice. Otherwise, watch your plate when I'm at the table. I was in Rome at the end of the year, so Italian has moved to the top of the list. I also love Thai and Vietnamese food along with all the great Mexican food in the city, and I'm a sucker for the food trucks. I bow to Chairman Bao.
A winding trail
Music, live and otherwise
A good book (with a cover and real pages)
