So. Besides the outdoor showers thing.
I enjoy the changing of the seasons (did a stint on the west coast but WAY happy to be back), non-pretentious art galleries, healthy cooking, rock n' roll and film. Coffee, brunch and the entire Sunday morning experience replete with bacon, Chet Baker, pajama pants and the NY Times is pretty sweet too.
David Byrne said "the body understands music before the mind" and I have to agree. Dancing, and nearly any activity that gets me OUT if my head (I'm a pretty cerebral dude), is a BIG thumbs up for me. That includes yoga, weights, hiking, active beach time and more. I enjoy a healthy lifestyle and it'd be great if you did too. :)
All said, I LOVE being a man and I try to be the best, most authentic version of “me” possible. Like any New Yorker worth their salt I work very hard; this said, I constantly temper this inclination and try to honor the present moment. After all, that's all we ever have.

Movies+TV+Film: The standard go-tos like Colbert Report and the latest TED talks (here's one of my faves). Movies ==> Zeitgeist: The Movie, Lost in Translation, Anchorman, Say Anything and nerdy stuff like Berserk. Foreign films when I want to feel smart (admission: I leave the subtitles on).
Music: MJ, Fugazi, Nick Hakim, Lianne La Havas, Fleetwood, Bowie, Tamaryn, LCD, Wild Nothing, George Harrison, Jesus Lizard, Smiths, Ryan Adams, Modern Lovers, Bonobo, Police, Sabbath, Colin Hay, Talking Beats. New wave.
Food: I'm happily on the paleo / gluten-free / chocolate-peanut butter ice cream bandwagon.

Not so serious: Cuteoverload.com, puppy piles, fashion, Techmology, and Rad-dudes.com of course.
