Favorites?

Cartoon-hmm, anything Hanna Babera?
Movie-tough one.  Anything early Michael Mann, Heat, Thief, etc
Book-loved The Wind up Bird Chronicles by Haruki Murakami
Author-see above
Artist-also a tough one. I love art and can’t say I have a favorite. I love many works by many artists. That said, the Bernini sculptures at the Borghese museum in Rome are the most beautiful things I’ve ever seen made by a human being. Close second would be Richard Serra’s steel sculpture at Dia: Beacon, NY.
Dessert-My late Grandmother Allen’s chocolate fudge sauce
Cereal-Strawberry Fields!
Fruit-Kiwi
Drink-that’s easy, La Croix. Orange or Pamplemousse!
Soap-Dr Bronner’s
Sunglasses-American Optical:  the real aviators
Sport/team-Atlanta Hawks basketball. They’re tough to be a fan of, but this is my home
Animal-any boxer, anywhere, anytime
City or place-The ATL is home, then Athens, GA, where I grew up,
Coffee or tea-Octane’s espresso blend, ground and pulled at home
First concert-can’t remember if it was Widespread Panic at the Georgia Theater or Billy Idol at the Omni
Favorite song/band/musician-no such thing.  So much music that I love.  If I could only make one record ever again, it would probably be Tom Waits.

Tool you can’t live without-my ears, patience.

Would you draw for us a sketch or yourself or pet?-I can’t draw.
