Music is very important to me. Music is the language of emotion and is useful to accentuate a certain feeling. I like a wide variety of music. Everything from classical, classic rock, Jazz (ie. Maynard Ferguson), old school country, punk, new wave, alternative, jam bands, progressive rock, glam rock, (ie. Bowie), fusion, art rock, experimental (odd combinations of other genres and new combinations of new musical textures and timbres), and a lot of guilty pleasures like Hall and Oates, Billy Joel, hair metal, and some I would be embarrassed to admit...
I am a great reader. I tend to gravitate to some the old school avant garde writers of the beat generation. Burroughs and Thompson are some that I have read. Graphic novels like "Sandman" or anything else by Vertigo (Fables, Preacher, ect.) . I am really into The Walking Dead comics and the novels (Rise of the Gov.) I also read lots of technical articles, nonfiction, magazines, and case law. I usually pick up a new hobby here and there and go through stages where I have to know everything about it!
T.V. shows: Thank god for Netflix! Lost, Breaking Bad, Sons of Anarchy, Dexter, Dr. Who (new incarnation), Sopranos, MST3K, It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia, The Walking Dead, Pawn Stars, American Pickers, History Channel in general, and WKUK. I don't watch much network television. I don't care for most reality shows. I don't like American Idol. I also get douche chills from watching The Jersey Shore or any similar show with shallow and disgusting participants.
I love ALL kinds of food. Sushi, Indian, East Asian (Ie. Thai, Japanese, Chinese) (I guess I really have only tried the Americanized versions.. haha), Mediterranean, seafood, and good 'ol American staples. I would love to have some Morel mushrooms!
