Favorite bassists :
The best one I know of is Billy Sheehan. The Scorps have had some good bassists, but they've proven to be rather replaceable...
Favorite books :
The Dark is Rising (series), and a bunch of Egyptology and foreign language books.
Favorite tv :
As far as what's on, basically I'll watch MASH or Frasier if I happen to catch them. I'm not too big on television.
Favorite movies :
Basically, I look for anything with Bill Murray: What About Bob?, Stripes, Groundhog Day, etc. I also love Excalibur, and never turn down Total Recall. And, I have been known to get drawn into the occasional romance movie; none of that romantic comedy crap, though.
