I also have a work background in music since I did live concert engineering and I've also worked behind the scenes in college radio. I've listened to most every major style of music, so my favorites aren't limited to a particular style. I do tend to listen to contemporary music more often.
I'm a long-time Objectivist NOT a Libertarian! What this really means is that I'm more interested in connecting the why to the how rather than just advocating for taking particular actions regardless of motives.
I tend to be opinionated, but I keep my opinions to myself unless queried. I have long-term goals, but I think I've become a bit better at setting interim steps.
I'm also back in school studying computer programming for a second Bachelor's degree or a Master's degree. I'm also trying to continue with musical work.
I moved into a different part of Orange County and got a house for rent!!! I'm still house and car shopping.
Movies: ...not enough favorites, but _The Mask of Zorro_ is my #1 favorite of the past dozen years or so. I also love _Blade Runner_, early James Bond movies, early Mel Brooks movies are good as far as comedy goes....
Music: ...maybe too many?!? Again, I've heard thousands of bands, but these days, I mainly listen to Italian and Japanese progressive rock as well as DEATH & TAXE$ (with Tom Shannon), FIELDS OF THE NEPHILIM, KING CRIMSON, TANGERINE DREAM, and Klaus Schulze. (_Farscape_ seems like it will be okay, but it's not going to be the best work for either Schulze or Lisa Gerrard.)
Food: Yes, please... I mainly prefer American, Italian, Thai, and Indian, but I've tried many other cuisines.
Television: I watch financial programming (of course) and some sports (but overwhelmingly tennis.)
I used to watch (in no particular order):
_Mythbusters_ (though I don't care for the newer engineers)
_Hawaii 5-0_ (the original series, of course!)
_Monty Python's Flying Circus_
_The Vicar of Dibley_
Really, any BBC comedy is likely to be worth watching. (By the way, I consider BBC news to be mildly interesting though it's patently hard Leftist propaganda!)
