I try to go spearfishing every weekend; something about eating fresh fish thats caught yourself keeps me going into cold winter water.
i very very often discover new artists and its all i rave about for the week. caspar david friedrich was the latest; my inability to shutup about him tested the limits of a friendship of at least three people. i try to emulate some of their style into whatever im working on. constant evolution i guess
if im walking home late at night, and its a balmy spring/summer evening, theres every chance i'll lie back in a large oval and stargaze.
twister. ive won a competition.
i rule at jenga
calming down drunk people
And im patient. To a point.

george carlin. funniest and grumpiest guy ever. i could listen to him all day.
i love it all. hp lovecraft, its 90 years old and quite weird.storm of steel, a scanner darkly, book of the new sun, freakonomics, the lion the witch and the wardrobe, the black cauldron, 1984, the forever war, fear and loathing on the campaign trails (another hunter book), the dice man, stalingrad and berlin, slaughterhouse five, cats cradle, welcome to the monkey house, american gods (for the 3rd time in as many years), dangerous visions..
as for movies, all of it...fear and loathing, the princess bride, aliens, distrist 9, tarentino stuff, dark crystal, anchorman, the shining, evil dead, heavy metal, the hurt locker, king of kong....if youve got a soft spot for bad 80's movies we'll have something to chat about
tv...curb your enthusiasm, south park, american dad, QI..anything with louis theroux or david attenborough
does anyone remember watching the maxx on sbs about 15 years ago? no? fine
music...theres way too much to list here, but thee oh scees, neil young, sonic youth and their side projects, my bloody valentine, dinosaur jr, modest mouse, kurt vile, lotus plaza, the cramps, evan dando, hendrix, mudhoney, this one song by M83 that sounds like a combination of a boxing match, heartbreak, and F1 cars flying at breakneck speeds,......is a pretty good start...
and coachwhips! holy hell, thats some primal, messy rock and roll
christoph waltz cant put a foot wrong either.
my quincy quigg designed snowboard (i wanna explain more, but its impossible. its beautiful and chaotic and malign simultaneously)
