Profile Information

Website
http://www.zachisonline.com
Interests
Working towards early retirement, enjoying good drink and smoke with friends, trekking through nature for solitude, traveling the world to learn.
Books
Don't get me started. I have a shelf full of shame that stares me down daily.
Movies
Whatever I'm in the mood for when there's a moment, but honestly, who has the time?
Music
An eclectic mix of music's recording history from the '50s and onward. Probably too much pop and synthesizer for most people's taste. Screw them! I like my music to remind me of Sonic the Hedgehog.
