Dr. Matthew Cathey

I adore all of the following, in no particular order:

· University of Tennessee football.  Go Vols!

· Reading.  I love graphic novels (especially V for Vendetta, The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen series, Y: The Last Man, Fables, The Walking Dead, …).  I also love everything Christopher Moore ever wrote (but especially Fool and Lamb).  My favorite sci-fi series is the Baroque Cycle by Neal Stephenson.

· TV and movies. The SimpsonsLost.  Wes Anderson.  DamagesTransformers (the original series).  Bill Murray.  Dan Aykroyd.  Chevy Chase.  Arrested DevelopmentModern Family.  I could go on all day.

· Music.  Rock, country (not terrible country-pop garbage like you hear on “country” radio stations, though), bluegrass.  Old 97s, Scott Miller, Avett Brothers, Del McCoury, Wilco, BR5-49, Vampire Weekend, Damnwells, Johnny Cash, Willie Nelson, Elvis Presley, Son Volt, The Meat Purveyors, …  Thousands of others.

· Maps.  Old maps.  New maps.  Weird maps.  Give me a map, and I’m consumed for hours.

· Barbeque.  Preferably with Sun-Drop.
