I live in Baltimore but am in NYC pretty much every other weekend to see family, friends, games, and bands back home. It's like a dual-citizenship deal.
Very easy-going, driven, and creative guy born and raised in the suburbs of Queens, NY (I come from the same hometown as The Ramones, Spider-Man, and Ray Romano). I like hockey (Rangers/Avalanche) and baseball (Mets/O's - though I'm trying to see every team's ballpark). Pro wrestling is the best. I'm involved in the DIY punk scene even though I don't (think I) fit a lot of the stereotypes. My spiritual godfathers are Michael J. Fox and Vince McMahon.
Books - High Fidelity, The Great Gatsby, Joe College, Charlie & The Chocolate Factory, The Rules of Attraction
Movies - Back to the Future, Elizabethtown, Clerks, Teen Wolf, High Fidelity, Fast Times at Ridgemont High, Some Kind of Wonderful, Can't Hardly Wait, Safety Not Guaranteed, Sleepwalk With Me... I could go on
TV - Veronica Mars, Freaks & Geeks, Boy Meets World, Saved by the Bell, The Wonder Years, Scrubs, The League, It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia... I could go on again
Music (right now anyway) - I'm currently going through a phase where I'm really into Gin Blossoms, The Psychedelic Furs, Carole King, and Nas. Take that as you may. Otherwise... Saves the Day, Weston, Lanemeyer, The Get Up Kids, The Front Bottoms, The Hotelier, Beach Slang, Rational Anthem, RVIVR, Worriers, Allison Weiss, Masked Intruder, The Menzingers, The Replacements, Rilo Kiley, Weezer, Limbeck, Lifetime, Kid Dynamite, Blink 182, MxPx, The Wonder Years, Latterman, Say Anything... I started with the whole promoter/record label thing in college and now it's taken on a life of its own.
Food - Cocoa Pebbles, baked ziti, Tex-Mex, anything with avocado.
Again, it's not a necessity that any of this stuff correlates. But I do take my own tastes seriously and am always interested in meeting more people who I can share obscure records and art with. And it does give us something to talk about.
I also believe smoking pot is a *lot* better for you than drinking alcohol. Not to say I don't drink ever. But I'm kinda over it.
