I'm basically a blues and rock guy but I like a lot of different kinds of music; lately I've been listening to Tab Benoit and Oliver Mtukudzi. For live music I'm partial to the Beachland; for movies it's the Cinematheque or Monday nights movie special. I like walking around in the woods when the weather is decent. I lift weights several times a week; I enjoy it and at my age it looks like a necessity. I dislike opera, smarmy crooners of the Sinatra type, cucumbers, television, and the Rethugs. I like Dostoevsky, Mailer, the Stones, Dylan, the Clash, the Bell Rays, catfish, and the first two Godfathers. Among other things.
