Steve Ross Answers Five Questions
November 19, 2014 by Screenmag
In the latest installment of our regular running feature, Steve Ross, Director of Content Production at mcgarrybowen answers Five Questions With SCREEN.
SCREEN: What's your favorite day of the week?
ROSS: No disrespect to any of the other six. They’re all fine days in their own rights, but there’s no doubt it’s Saturday. Why? A full day with my wife and daughter, a day to recover from whatever Friday wrought, date night and the anticipation of Sunday, which is the runner up to Saturday as favorite day of the week.
SCREEN: Can you cook? If so, what is your go-to dish?
ROSS: I make a mean Grilled Ham and Cheese Sandwich. Key ingredients are 1) ham, 2) cheese. Sounds simple, but it has taken years to perfect.
SCREEN: What's your most-played iPod track?
ROSS: Depends on the week. Bruce Springsteen “Thunder Road”, The Kinks “Days”, The Clash “Rudie Can’t Fail” Elvis Costello “What’s So Funny ‘Bout Peace, Love and Understanding” are all in heavy rotation.
SCREEN: What's your guilty pleasure TV?
ROSS: Live From Daryl’s House. Each episode has a different musical artist visit Daryl Hall’s house/studio to hang out, make food and jam with Daryl Hall of Hall & Oates. It’s bizarre, sweet, awkward and usually results in surprisingly good music with unexpectedly interesting artists from all eras and genres.
SCREEN: Describe your perfect Sunday.
ROSS: Posey, my 5 year old, sleeps in late. We lounge around in the morning, make a big breakfast and then head out for a walk in our neighborhood. On our way back, we run into the neighbors and we end up hanging out for the better part of the day, when before you know it, someone suggests dinner together and the day just flows along until bedtime.
SCREEN: Best thing about Thanksgiving?
ROSS: The best thing about Thanksgiving is that it’s the most inclusive American Holiday. No religion owns it, it’s not about gifts, and watching football is acceptable if not encouraged.
