I live to travel. Life is not about collecting useless items like good little consumers. For me it is about those profound life experiences you attain that allow you to look back at your life and think - I did that! By the time I die, I want to have been everywhere and seen everything. That is my life's goal.
I love to go to Rock Concerts. The vibe and connection I get from live music is inspiring. My love affair with music has been my longest relationship. I love to eat and experiment with all types of foods - but yet I never cook. I am a regular VIP fixture at my local restaurants and sushi bars.
I have 1500+ movies, and 100s of complete TV seasons in my media collection. Mostly I love stupid comedies like Team America, Old School, Step Brothers, Beerfest, Eurotrip, Half Baked, Deuce Bigalow - or Intelligent Man Movies like Sin City, Snatch, RockNRolla, Pulp Fiction, Clockwork Orange - also love movies like Almost Famous, American Beauty, Kung Fu Hustle. On TV I am addicted to Man vs Wild, & Survivorman. I also love Weeds, House, Lost, Dexter, NFL football, and the Office - however I am almost never watching real TV.
I have a very diverse collection of music, with one exception. Bands I like play musical instruments. I do not think a repeating drum loop and ebonic mumbling about lollipops is hot. My roots are in Classic Hard Rock like Judas Priest, ACDC, Led Zepplin - before I fell for Heavier fare like Pantera, Metallica, Disturbed, NIN ,RATM. I LOVE English Punk like the Clash, Sex Pistols, the Adicts, the Business, but also enjoy American punk like the Ramones, Bad Religion also. My music needs attitude - or emotion, like Tool, a perfect circle, Sisters of Mercy, Depeche Mode, and even VAST. either way it needs to be edgy and genuine.
