PS. I can't see the "they're interested" type notifications, so drop a note and say Hi if you'd like.
Music: All over the place: Pixies, Cure, Coltrane, Hugh Masakela, all kinds of world music, huge jazz fan and history buff, brass bands, Sonny Rollins, Miles, Mingus, Blue Note period stuff ... Singer Songwriters like Glen Hansard, Paper Bird ... early Metallica ... classic-rock is growing back on me after getting burned out on it ... love finding obscure old soul gems... oi... I could spend all day listing people. Spotify has been a godsend - let's share playlists.
Books: Lots of reading for school. Loved Memoirs of a Geisha, No Country for Old Men, Kite Runner. I like autobiographies, history, that type of thing too.
