Music That Inspires Me
Anything that swings, especially if it has piano. There are too many individuals and bands to list them all. I love jazz (of course) but I also love rock and blues like the Rolling Stones, Muddy Waters, The Black Crowes, Gov't Mule, Little Feat, and Jimmie Vaughan. I also dig a lot of local bands like Winter Wallace, Peekaboo Theory, Kenneth Scott, and others.
Films I'll Watch More Than Once
Blazing Saddles, Stripes, Star Wars (all of 'em), Star Trek (all of those too), anything that makes me laugh.
