Huge hockey fan. Love it. Nothing better in the world of sports in my opinion: fast, graceful, aggressive, electric; a perfect mix of skill and physicality, of speed and grit, of finesse and power. I've never taken anyone to a live game that didn't come out with at least having had a great time and an appreciation.
I love the snow. Born and raised in California, but would rather be on the slopes than in the surf any day. Especially Tahoe: mountainside by day, craps table-side by night. I'm not a big gambler, but craps is a lot of fun once you get to learn the game.
Reading is a great way to be OK with not doing anything else. Fiction, non-fiction, doesn't matter. Short stories to epics, essays to volumes. I tend to switch back between a novel and something from which I can learn, depending on the mental energy I'm willing to expend. Don't really have time for TV or cable - Netflix is oppressive enough.
Went to Europe for a few weeks in Feb/March. Iceland, Denmark, Germany, Austria. There's really too much to say about all of that. Iceland in particular was amazing. The whole country is a postcard.
Reading now: 'The Power of Habit' by Charles Duhigg and a collection of Philip K. Dick stories. Just finished 'House of Leaves' by Mark Z. Danielewski which was the most insane thing I've ever read.
Just Watched: Upstream Color - I think Carruth is a genius. Also, can't stop watching Bill Burr standup and Archer.
Music...probably best just to ask. But favorites include Aphex Twin, Underworld, Cocteau Twins, Saint Etienne, Groove Armada, Cut Copy, New Order, Millionyoung, VNV Nation.
Things that make beautiful sounds
Films that challenge my emotions
The fact that the snow this season really sucks.
