Favorite bands :
Opeth, Death, Mogwai, Enslaved, Baroness, Kyuss, Pearl Jam, Down, Sleep, Wishbone Ash, Porcupine Tree, SABBATH, Immortal, Isis, Pelican, Gojira, Mastodon, Alcest, Amon Amarth, Weedeater, Moonsorrow, Kylesa, Yes, Falkenbach, High on Fire, Type O Negative, Devin Townsend Project, Insomnium, Saint Vitus, Alice in Chains, Neurosis, Queens of The Stone Age, Corrosion of Conformity, Fugazi, Russian Circles, I could just list every band I love but it would be too long. I like everything from folk, country in the likes of Townes Van Zant and bebop/hard bop jazz like Miles Davis to nearly every ridiculous sub-genre of metal, rock, and punk.
Favorite guitarists :
Kim Thayil, Mikael Akerfeldt, Dan Swano, Jerry Cantrell, Devin Townsend, Tony Iommi, George Harrison, Matt Pike, Alex Skolnick, James Hetfield, Scott "Wino" Weinrich, Marty fucking Friedman. I consider Chuck Schuldiner a deity who was a mortal for but a brief time on our little planet. Seriously, the guy could write awesome riffs as well as really introspective and heavy lyrics.
Favorite bassists :
Peter Steele (RIP, one of my favorite musicians), Flea, Cliff Burton, Jeff Caxide, Steve Harris, Steve DiGiorgio, Geezer Butler, "Dixie" Dave Collins from Weedeater, Al Cisneros
Favorite books :
Casino Royale, Beowulf, The Odyssey, A Song of Ice and Fire series, all of H.P. Lovecraft's stuff
Favorite tv :
Metalocalypse, The Simpsons, House of Cards, Game of Thrones, Star Trek: The Next Generation, Frasier(fuck the haters), old History channel, PBS docs, etc
Favorite movies :
Gladiator, Lord of The Rings movies, Heavyweights, Good Burger, Black Sheep, Tommy Boy(Anything with Chris Farley), Into The Wild, Master and Commander, Star Wars (ALL of them)

About Flying Afros
Directionless 20-something year old. I enjoy drinking good quality beer, brewing(amateur), going to shows, obviously playing guitar, wasting time on reddit, sailing, swimming, the green, camping, pretending I'm a viking going on a raid while blasting Amon Amarth, Falkenbach, Moonsorrow and the like in my Jeep. Traveling is cool too when I have the time and money.
