I love the outdoors, everything from gardening to hiking, biking and camping. I enjoy adventures of all kinds, and have been on some great ones - from building houses in El Salvador, surfing in Costa Rica, to bartending in Amsterdam. I also enjoy attending yoga classes once or twice a week, and just spending time with friends in this great city. Lately, I've started playing my banjo again. Is there a guitar or fiddle player out there who wants to try playing Cripple Creek or the Salty Dog Blues with me?
Clerks, The Graduate, Superbad, Juno, the Harry Potter series, I Heart Huckabee's, The Fantastic Mr. Fox, Oh Brother Where art Thou, Fargo, Miriam's Wedding, Do the Right Thing, Greed, The Blue Angel, lots more I am not thinking of right now. I just watched the recent BBC productions of Bleak House and Little Dorrit. I read the books a long time ago, but these were great adaptations! Caught the last episode of Downton Abbey last night - best British soap ever!
I don't watch much TV, but I enjoyed watching Six Feet Under, Arrested Development and Queer as Folk with former housemates. I do enjoy just about anything on Masterpiece Theater Classics!
Been into Americana like The Great Lake Swimmers, Bon Iver, The Be Good Tanyas, Stomping Radishes and The Pines this past year. Others favorites are Aimee Mann, The Cure, Depeche Mode, Joy Division, Sonic Youth, Old 97s, Son Volt, Camper Van Beethoven, Cracker, Fugazi, Boogie Down Productions, Run DMC, Ministry, Nitzer Ebb, They Might Be Giants, Garbage, Breeders, White Stripes, Nirvana, Minutemen, Johnny Cash and way more 80s music than I care to admit to (even stuff I hated in the 80s).
I love Indian, Middle Eastern and Himalayan Food. I haven't had any Eritrean/Ethiopian food since I lived in Oakland, but I remember loving the veggie platter with five distinctly flavored dishes and delicious Injera bread. Makes me hungry thinking of it! I like Thai, Mexican, Indonesian and Italian food. Homemade food, especially if it contains fresh vegetables from the garden (or local) is great! Lately I have enjoyed experimenting with massaged kale and swiss chard salads.
