I am big on reading, going to see music, dancing, hiking, swimming, camping, festivals and surfing or snowboarding when I get the chance.
As far as work goes...I used to do the 9-5 grind for close to a decade as an environmental consultant, until about a year ago. Nowadays I have my own little online retail business selling books, comics and stuff. I do miss the adventures of working outdoors and the challenges that my old environmental job offered, but I work a lot less, have a ton more freedom and am my own boss these days which is priceless.
Palahniuk, Chomsky, Zinn, Kerouac, Thompson, Burroughs, Alan Moore, Comic Books, Sci Fi, Fantasy, LOTS of Comics
I love movies...to many to list, but some of my favorite directors are David Lynch, Joel and Ethan Coen, Wes Anderson, Spike Jonze, Hayao Miyazaki, Michel Gondry. I love a good documentary too, and then there is the guilty pleasures of Robert Rodriguez, Quentin Tarantino, or some well written horror flick or comic book movie on occasion.
I refuse to watch network TV, mainstream news and commercials, but lately my wife and I have been known to get into shows on Netflix like Californication, Walking Dead, Dr. Who (yes I am a dork).
This section is stupid...I am a music freak. Very hard even for me to pin down as I have a diverse and somewhat eclectic taste at times. I grew up mostly more straight forward stuff like Led Zeppelin, punk, hardcore, metal, rock, reggae and the Grateful Dead Dead. Now a days, depending on the mood I listen to pretty much anything that is different, artistic, underground, danceable, experimental, cool and/or old. Sometimes its happy, sometimes sad, sometimes light and sometimes its dark. Sometimes fast, sometimes slow and a lot of the times it is weird. Standout favs at the moment....King Dude, Black Heart Procession, The Growlers, Chelsea Wolfe, Ennio Morricone, Dark Dark Dark, Warpaint, Iron and Wine, Bon Iver, Elliot Smith, Liberation Movement, Welder & ESKMO, Nicoals Jaar, Manu Chao, Johnny Cash, Hank Williams, Calexico, Velvet Underground, Godspeed You! Black Emperor, Mogwai, Joy Division, Danzig, Misfits, Fugazi, Frodus, The Faint, Milemarker, Pixies, Les Savy Fav, Radiohead, Jay Munly, Slim Cessna's Auto Club, Nick Cave, Dead Can Dance, NIN, NWW, Swans, Lustre, Bell Witch, Witchcraft, Ministry, Aphex Twin, The Knife, MF DOOM, Handsome Boy, Buck 65, Atmosphere, Sage Francis, Madlib & Quasimoto, J Dilla and I could really go on, but I will spare you...
I worked as a chef before and after college and now I live in a town that has some great local agriculture which I try and enjoy often; so eating good has always been important to me. I used to be vegetarian after high school and was vegan when I was going to HSU. For health and personal reasons, I started eating meat again a few years ago. Now I can get into eating anything fresh local, organic and sustainably raised/grown.
