Hmm. Next, let's agree that these are self-selected descriptions that we put forth to portray ourselves in a certain light.
Anyway in my spare time:
Photo projects, a bit of film-directing/editing. Getting back into some acting. Developing a writing portfolio (articles). Trying on an elaborate recipe. Riding my motorcycle.
I am in the process of renovating a condo in an old textile mill, so that's fun.
By day, working 40 at a small publishing company. To wit: I have a new refrigerator and washer and dryer. This is baller. Renting your body to a company should be good for somethin, right?
However, I hope to have a new career in the next five years. I want a meaningful adventure.

(Hmmm. I guess I like a lot of self-reflective romantic comedies.)
I also get into foreign/documentary works.
I keep getting into conversations over:
The Wire (intelligent and insightful, excellent drama)
Six Feet Under (I watched the last episode twice and cried like a baby boy)
Dexter, but I gave up on it.
Game of Thrones (like 99% of everyone)
The Top of the Lake
Madmen (Complicates my feelings about marriage, yikes)
House of Cards
Wonder Woman (I was in love, I had it bad)
Felix the Cat
Endless shitty sitcoms that I am now embarrassed to mention...
Music moves me, I like a lot of it. There's no average week for me with music, but here are some:
Telepopmusik. The National. The Shins. Joni Mitchell. Radiohead. Tears for Fears. Ryan Adams. Thievery Corporation. Delta Spirit. Lovaage. Pulp. Chet Baker. Nat King Cole. The Walkmen. Morrissey. Clap Your Hands. XX. Bat for Lashes. Groove Armada. David Bowie. Arcade Fire.
Food: A lifelong goal to work through. I have food goals. I have recently acquired skills in pizza making with a stone, a peel, and homemade dough. Sweet lordy mama, it's good.
I like to gain skills, but the people's food is the best food. I just like it to be delicious. Can it please be delicious?
