So I went to school at Cal imagining for those four years that I would end up working for the city helping folks through the redevelopment agency or through something else selfless and rewarding. Well it didn't work out that way, but the new gig and direction are truly fascinating. It certainly keeps me engaged.
Though work will take up a good chunk of the week I try to explore the bay more on the weekends. Trouble with exploring more of this amazing place is that I have already found so many good spots that I just keep returning to them knowing how wonderful they are.
Long and strange conversations with many tangents.
TV/movies: how I met your mother, Dr. Horrible's sing along blog, serenity/firefly, topgear, star trek, BSG, farscape, madmen , Scott Pilgrim vs. The World, The Prestige, 30 Rock, and all the fantastic stuff coming out of Netflix and amazon prime these days. House of cards was brilliantly done.
Music: arcade fire, flux pavilion, led zeppelin, the black keys, the white stripes, the doors, jimmi Hendrix, two fingers, justice, draft punk, the devil makes three, muse, Mumford and sons, aerosmith, arctic monkeys, bad company, beck, Beirut, Dr. Dog, Edward Sharpe & the Magnetic Zeros, Elton John, fleet foxes, foster the people, Franz Ferdinand, Gnarls Barkley, gorrilaz, gramatic, heart, iron & wine, Dan Auerbach, jack white, jet, Jethro Tull, johnny cash, lynyrd skynyrd, Metallica, Miles Davis, Neil Young, Nirvana, Otis Taylor, pink Floyd, queen, Rjd2, sweet, taj mahal, ted Nugent, thellonious monk, three dog night, wolf mother, zz top
When I get to do what I envision in my ideal world....I am enjoying some fine beverages with good friends, at a good concert, or sometimes even just relaxing with a good book.
But really, if you have something to say that will expand my mind I really want to hear it. I love to learn all sorts of new things from folks.
