Books
Great books I've read and recommend reading:
The Bible, The Dream Giver, The Resolution for Men, The Greatest Miracle in the World, How to Win Friends and Influence People, the list could continue...

Books I plan to read this year:
The Great Gatsby and Wild at Heart

I'd love more suggestions on books that are good for the manly soul.
Movies
Although I studied Media Arts and Science, shot home videos as a young boy, and recreationally shoot wedding videography, the list of great movies I've watched is very short (and almost embarrassing). Instead of listing that short list, here is what I WILL finally watch this year:
Shawshank Redemption,
Goodfellas,
The Godfather,
Office Space
Music
My music taste ranges very widely from Frank Sinatra, Louis Armstrong, and Michael Bublé, to Christian Rap -- LeCrae and Andy Mineo.

I choose music to fit my day. If I'm going fishing with my son, I'll listen to country. If I'm relaxing and drinking a glass of wine with my wife, I'll put on something classical. If I'm about to work or workout, that's when I put on Christian Rap--the bass gets me motivated without listening to the garbage that's on the radio.
