-I like books.
-I try and read 900 pages a month to keep myself reading.

-I make/compose metal music, too. I am the one on the right.
-I also make comedy movies. Here's one I co-wrote, co-produced, co-directed, acted in, edited, and so on.

Three BOOKS for the Elven kings under the sky (currently reading):

I read this in high school and it started a love of both Terry Brooks and reading in general. (This book is probably why I am here typing this now). After a horrid, abysmal, abhorrent television adaptation, I am re-reading it. The book holds up and is inspiring as ever! I love the material of Esther and Jerry Hicks, so I am enjoying this volume. Delving deep into the material, I am learning new ways to live a totally deliberate life. Interesting reading . . .
