Brian Bloom (aka mooman or moo-man)email@example.com
Hola! I'm Brian, sometimes known (particularly from the #ecto IRC channel) as 'mooman'. I'm a long time denizen of the ecto mailing list, joining just after the list started in 1991...
My musical tastes, like many of the other commentators here, vary significantly, and sometimes include the artists you'll see here in the Ectoguide, especially the more dreamy and ethereal artists like Area, Cocteau Twins, Dead Can Dance, Enya, Praise, The Sundays, etc. But more often than that, you'll catch me listening to electronica, ambient soundscapes, or dance music, like the Orb, Brian Eno, Harold Budd, Hardfloor, Skylab, Vapourspace, Orbital, 808 State, and old 'new beat' and 'acid house' stuff. And somewhere in the midst of all this, I still find time to listen to classics like New Order, Pink Floyd, Art of Noise, Paul Simon, old blues music, and more... So I'm all over the map, musically speaking, and friends are never sure what strangeness they'll hear from my stereo... One of these days I'll get around to making a list of my favorite tunage.
In addition to my music collection, I'm addicted to foreign and art-house movies. Check out my Artsy Fartsy Movie List to see what flicks I dig... And to go along with my unusual music and unusual movies, I like to indulge in unusual beers, which can easily be accomplished here in the microbrew heaven of the Pacific Northwest. My wife, Mindy, and I have been in Vancouver, WA (just outside Portland, OR) for the past couple years after escaping the Texas heat in 1997. You may see us taking our 4 dogs up into the Cascades to relax in the trees or play in the snow on Mt. Hood, things we never could do back in Texas. :)
