At this moment I'm thinking...
Book: The Alexandria Quartet by Lawrence Durrell or Kundera, The
Unbearable Lightness of Being. How about that David Mitchell, Cloud
Atlas or Ursula LeGuin, all of it. John Crowley, Little Big. Jim
Harrison, Dalva. Jorge Amado. Kim Stanley Robinson: Mars Trilogy.
Sherri Tepper, Starhawk. Tom Robbins is a god. I'm working on
reading everything ever written by Neal Stephenson. I'm a
Film: Almost Famous, Strictly Ballroom, Blade Runner, Donnie Darko,
Children of Men, Pan's Labrynth, The Handmaid's Tale, Inglorious
Basterds, Juno, Slumdog Millionaire, Dangerous Liasons, Amelie,
Mississippi Masala, Henry & June, Master and Commander, Room
with a View, Fanny & Alexander, Les Enfants du Paradis, Jules
et Jim, La Dolce Vita or ... (I've loved so many) And, yes I
thought Inception was a wonderful return to a day when films were

Music: Manu Chao or The Buena Vista Social Club, Michael
Franti/Spearhead. I'm hooked right now on the DJ, Gaudi. Came a bit
late to the Decembrists which I now love. Ray LeMontaigne. Cheb I
Sabbah, Tori Amos, Regina Spector - this list is way too long to
Ask me ten minutes from now.
