My body, not so much. I'm a desk jockey. I make up for it in part by exercising the way most people brush teeth. For the same reason most people brush teeth--I've never been the sporting type. (My ambitions tend to be more inspired by personal fulfillment than social achievement. Competition seems "weird" to me.)

Studying a handful of things: salsa, improv, and iPhone programming. And cooking. (I reserve the right to drop any one of these at any moment.)
Being unconventional. (There are those who try, and then there's me.)
Pull-ups, for some odd reason. (Can't touch my toes, though.)
I can go through a pile of bad flicks in the time it takes to read
one sub-par novel. And I'm all about efficiency. So, despite a freakish literary comprehension, I seldom read for pure pleasure. When I do...
- Coupland has been consistently weird and funny for twenty years. And he writes exceptional dialogue.
- Palahniuk is hit and miss. But his prose is infectiously poetic.
- Hemingway was great with structure and grand themes.
- Rand wrote one decent book, with strong themes (but she over-romanticized her characters).
- Someone convinced me to check out Franzen recently. I think his social commentary distracts from the narrative, but our personal sensibilities are parallel.
I like words, ideas, and nuanced complexities.
- anything by the Nolans, the Cohens, or Kaufman
- I Heart Huckabees
- Me and You and Everyone We Know
Mostly "high brow" sit-coms and home renovation shows.
- I actually watched Arrested Development when it was ON. Street cred.
- Peep Show
- The Thick of It
- Neon Genesis: Evangelion
- Holmes on Homes
- Income Property
(Podcast are "shows," too, right?)
- Real Time (this is what you do when you don't have HBO, folks)
- Stop Podcasting Yourself (where half the joke is placing the references)
- Adam Carolla
- The Mike O'Meara Show
I'm the type who listens to music with his eyes closed wearing obscenely expensive headphones.
Sure, there's nostalgia. It will go unmentioned.
Then there's the alt-rock I stumbled into while developing my ear as a teen.
- Tori Amos
- Sunny Day Real Estate
- Rage Against the Machine
After that, I settled into hip-hop. My preferences have taken divergent paths:
British formalism (which eventually progressed from trip-hop to ambient):
- Cinematic Orchestra
- Tim Hecker
Abstract lyricism. It doesn't have to be underground. But the words are the music.
- MF DOOM
(a lot of local talent as well, actually)
I attempt to follow a slow carb / paleo diet. But I'm not religious about it.
The two cultures that handle this best are Mexican and Indian. So, when salads get boring, I eat some fusion of the cuisine from those cultures.
By request, I will elaborate, for the curious.
2) A plan.
3) A contingency.
4) A willingness to fail.
5) An awareness of when I'm wrong.
6) The openmindedness to adapt.
I also spend inordinate amounts of time trying to cogently articulate feelings and/or states of mind in ways that rhyme.
