Books: Love in the Time of Cholera, Raymond Carver, Murakami,
Kundera, Pema Chodron, later Kerouac, Kurt Vonnegut, WS Merwin,
Neruda, Michael Pollan, 1491 and everything else. Been on a
non-fiction/ science/nutrition/history kick for a while.... Looking
to get back on the fiction train. Was into books on the Dutch
history in New York and am transitioning into semi-trashy
historical fiction about prehistoric man which I've found makes for
great mindless pre-bed reading. Haven't missed a National
Geographic in ten years.
Favorite movies/directors/actors: Wes Anderson, PT Anderson,
Terrence Malick, Andy Kaufman, Michel Gondry, Ken Burns, The Big
Lebowski, Will Farrell, Kids in the Hall, Any Kaufman, and a slew
of documentaries, shorts, and other bizarre post-modern
Music: I get paid to like everything but currently in rotation:
Andrew Bird, Gillian Welch, Bob Dylan, Willie Nelson, Fleet Foxes,
LCD, The Black Keys, Mumford and Sons, Magnetic Fields, Radiohead,
Alt-J, Josh Ritter, Kygo, The Clash, Beirut, Lord Huron, Future
Folk, The Avett Brothers, Blind Pilot, Crystal Fighters, Washed
Out, DeVotchka, Robot Heart sets from Burning Man, The National,
Oliver Mtukudzi, Pink Martini, Stan Getz, Keith Jarret, Louis
Armstrong, Sufjan Stevens, Johny Cash, and A Tribute to the Legacy
of 9 Time US Figure Skating Champion Michelle Kwan (our old band
name in LA)... So everything, but I have trouble listening to
modern Hip Hop and Country. I own about a thousand records and am
currently collecting old soul and country. I been known to go to
burning man a few times so I like me some dancey EDM stuff
Podcasts: this American life, radiolab, planet money, on being, the
moth, little things matter, Ted talks, freakonomics, and Dan
Savage. Was obsessed with Serial once.
Favorite Food: I like everything, especially Mexican, Sushi,
Indian, Thai, raw/vegetarian, and smoothies- which are like a
food... I just can't get into Ethiopian (tastes like a poor man's
Indian to me) but I've only tried it twice...
TV: I don't really watch tv but I do stream stuff online. Otherwise
I do like: Portlandia, The Daily Show, Colbert. (One day i hope to
finally watch GOT, The Wire and finish BSG.) I'm open to the idea
of having a "show" but need it to be good.
