||Pretty much most genres except for rage metal, punk, screamo, brostep, popstep, folk punk, hardcore, etc. I have a special love for Raï, Levantine and Gulf Arabic pop, Neo Soul, Jazz Rap and Liquid Drum and Bass (Makoto, London Elektricity, High Contrast), Iranian music, Sufi music (like Niyaz), and some J-Pop and Shibuya-kei (Towa Tei, Pizzicato Five).
I believe that no audiophile's music library is complete without AT LEAST one Steely Dan and Donald Fagen album.
I love anything with Jazz patterns of influences in it. I love Jazz Pop, Liquid Funk (jazzy Drum n' Bass), Jazz rock, Jazz rap (A Tribe Called Quest, The Roots, and De La Soul), and Raï (Khaled, Cheb Mami).
Baroque is also my favorite classical genre.
||Arabic culture and language, ethnolinguistics, automobiles, jet planes, military history, architecture, books, biology, conflict resolution, a few others, my fetish for aluminum, and my OCD habit of hoarding as many functioning pens in my bag as possible.
|Gear-Fi (Favorite Non-Audio Gear & Gadgets)
||iPhone 5s, iPad Mini, my Brother laser printer, Sony NEX-3N Mirrorless Interchangeable Lens Camera, and of course my gel pens.
