A completely incomplete list of things I like!
Books: Fortress of Solitude, The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier
& Klay (which features a cameo by my grandfather), A Visit From
the Geek Squad, Geek Love, Love in the Time of Cholera, The Road,
Dune, all Murakami. Poetry of ee cummings, Hafiz, Leonard Cohen,
Pablo Neruda & Mary Oliver. I just finished Dave Eggers' new
novel, The Circle and found it hilarious and terrifying.
Movies: Being Jon Malkovich, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind,
Donnie Darko, The Wrestler, Pulp Fiction.
Music: I occasionally DJ electronic music: midtempo, glitch, funky,
world beats. But I have varied interests outside of that as well:
Dylan, Massive Attack, Fourtet, The Velvet Underground, The Flaming
Lips, The xx, Sigur Ros, Calexico, Iron & Wine, Jose Gonzalez,
M. Ward, Mia Doi Todd, Sean Hayes, Tom Waits, Joni Mitchell, Neil
Young, Johnny Cash, Hendrix, Nina Simone, Miles Davis, Thelonious
Monk, Arcade Fire, Sublime, Santogold, Prince, Nneka. I just
discovered Fat Freddy's Drop and am loving them.
Food: I like to cook simple, yummy meals. But if I'm going out:
Thai, Burmese, Vietnamese, Sushi.
TV: I don't have a TV. But I am a full-on Game of Thrones addict.
Mad Men is pretty amazing too.
Podcasts: Third Coast, The New Yorker Fiction Podcast, Radiolab
& The Moth.
