Music, Movies, and Books

Jamaican music and music from the other Caribbean islands are my favorite but I am a music fanatic and love sounds from all over the world. Danzones, Highlife, Zydeco, HIndi film songs, Classical European Symphony music, old school Hip Hop, 80s American pop, Celtic music, etc. etc. I have music in more than ten languages on my computer.

My favorite book is the Bible. Yes, the Bible! It defines who I am.
