Books: I love Steinbeck, "The Portrait Of A Lady", "The English
Patient", Graham Greene, His Dark Materials Trilogy, novels
generally.... Patti Smith's "Just Kids".... history, and poetry,
some books on design or film too.
Movies: Almadovar, Woody Allen, Kubrick, Hitchcock, Miyasaki,
Sophia Coppola, Terry Gilliam, Wes Anderson, Charlie Chaplin, etc.,
A Single Man, annie hall, casablanca, the fanny trilogy, design for
living, unberable lightness of being, rear window, full metal
jacket....I liked Tree Of Life even though the dinosaur was just
silly. I can go for any genre but horror ('cept I just saw The
Shining and it was awesome...) and have a weakness for period
costumes. I like how hanging out with 10 year old boys makes me
watch sillier movies..."Young Frankenstein" makes me laugh again
and again...and again.
Shows: "House of Cards", "Sherlock", "Mad Men", "Slings and
Arrows", "The House of Elliot", and "Firefly". "Futurama" and "myth
busters" with the kid.

Reinhardt, Solas, Waillin Jennys...Magnetic Feilds, Bach,
Food: I am an omnivore. I like good food. Farmers markets, off the
grid, cheeseboard pizza, avocados...peaches. Cha
