I love spending time with friends doing whatever, but real life takes up a lot of time. If I could make a living off of music, I'd do it in a heartbeat. I love playing and writing - I just wish I had more time for it. That said, the rockstar life definitely is NOT for me. I have been on stage a couple of times though and loved every moment of it!
In my "spare" time I volunteer at local high schools to help teach students about engineering and technology. I mentor the students while they build robots. I am an active volunteer for the local events and also frequently volunteer at national events as well. This program does take up a lot of my time but I don't think I could ever walk away from it.
Movies: Sunshine, Wall-E, Roger Rabbit, Back to the Future, all Batman movies (even the cheesy ones), Ghostbusters, Inception, The Prestige, and far too many others to list.
Music: Megadeth, Nine Inch Nails, Sevendust, Dream Theater, Frontline Assembly, Aerosmith, ACDC, U2, Rodrigo y Gabriella, Skrillex, Daft Punk, good soundtrack music (anything by Hans Zimmer, Danny Elfman, or John Williams)...the list goes on. Anything with good musicianship or a good beat will work. I absolutely cannot stand country and I could live without most rap but there are always exceptions. The kids at school last year turned me on to some poppy stuff too.
Food: Chicken Parmesan and Caesar salads are my weaknesses. I'm pretty picky - no pickles, no mustard, no onions, no mayo.
