    Music Preferences:
    Avant-Garde to Western Swing, stopping off at all points except (bleh) stadium rock & regrettably most rap (too sexist, juvenile, posturing or butch. Regrettably because it's a waste of the Last Poets' legacy, among others): a notable exception for me is Emmanuel Jal. 'War Child' is a superb album.
