Interests Too many. Happiest when I'm pursuing more than one thing and have something completely different waiting in the wings. I'm addicted to live music, making it and listening to it. And I love wilderness adventures, and getting into situations that climbers call "sporty." I love getting lost for hours in museums, and I have a passion for spending time in places where historic events happened, especially when I have several good books about the people who were there. I have many favorite places, from urban to very rural, to nearly untouched, and I am frustrated that it's too expensive to go anywhere.
Favorite Movies "Casablanca" (Bergman & Bogart - the best), the original "Star Wars" trilogy (before it became a dumb kids thing), "Oh Brother Where Art Thou", "The Magnificent Seven", "Centennial" (27-hour mini-series), "How the West Was Won", "They Died with Their Boots On", "2001 - A Space Odyssey" (the future we never had because we spent the money on warfare instead.)
Favorite Music Acoustic Americana - new & roots - specifically, blues, bluegrass, borderlands, Cajun, cowboy, Celtic, Cape Breton, Quebecois, new-old-trad-alt-post folk, and the best of today's singer-songwriter acoustic renaissance.
Favorite Books Well - lots. A few:, "And Not To Yield" - James Ramsey Ullman. Shakespeare (complete works). "Letters from Planet Earth" - Mark Twain. Good histories; accounts of mountaineering, and other adventures and expeditions, (I'm a non-fiction guy with books, but often the opposite with films.)
