Who I Would Like to MeetH.L. Mencken
Favorite MusicMost everything, especially guitar-centric; B.B. King, Char, Carlos Santana, Buddy Guy, Eric Clapton, Mark Knoepfler, Susan Tedeschi, Joe Satriani, Leslie West, Stanley Jordan and on. Big on Nickelback, Default, Theory of a Deadman. Currently hooked on The Ultimate Santana.
Favorite TV ShowsPrison Break, and, except for the last very dumb episode, Supernatural. Forget about terrestrial TV. I hardly ever watch television and wouldn't watch Japanese TV shows if you put a gun to both temples.

Favorite QuotesI'm not concerned about all hell breaking loose, but that a PART of hell will break loose... it'll be much harder to detect.--George Carlin (R.I.P.)
Imagination is more important than knowledge.--Albert Einstein.
Many people will walk in and out of your life but only true friends will leave footprints in your heart. -- Eleanor Roosevelt
In a rational society we would want our presidents to be teachers. In our actual society we insist they be cheerleaders.
