I have a passionate love affair with music and she is my ice cold
red hot bitch mistress. She ties me up and drags me down the street
while all the neighbours are watching and wondering whether to take
photos or call the cops. Here's some examples:
Arcade Fire, Blackalicious, Cheap Trick, Daft Punk, Everclear,
Grand Buffet, Harvey Danger, Iggy Pop, Jurassic 5, Kronos Quartet.
Ladytron, Metric, Nick Cave, Oasis, Propellerheads, Queen, Todd
Rundgren, the Shins, the Tragically Hip, Underworld, Violent
Femmes, the Who, goddamn letter x (never really dug x the band or
x-ray specs), Yo La Tengo and Frank Zappa. Wheeeee!
food... to be honest, I'm not an epicurean. I'll eat literally
anything and probably a lot of it, including your friend and her
date's left-overs if we're out on a double-date and they leave
early. I cook a lot and generally know what I'm doing; for example,
if I am making spaghetti the first choice I have to deal with is
what kind of wine to use.
