I read a lot, indiscriminately and voraciously. My favorite book is
also my favorite work of art of any medium, James Joyce's
. It's an annual tradition of mine to reread it on
Bloomsday. Other favorites are The Magic Mountain

Here's my last.fm page
. My standards are David Bowie,
Converge, and Ivy. Lately I've been listening a lot to Dillnger
Escape Plan, Camera Obscura, and Janelle Monae. I recently saw
Deafheaven and BTBAM and will be soon seeing Dillinger Escape Plan,
TesseracT, and Liars.
I love all kinds of food, sushi and Italian particularly. I can
grill up a mean steak, but this doesn't mean I don't like tofu. I
can go for Bugs-Bunny-as-a-teakettle spicy or modern French
cuisine. My favorite restaurant in the city is India Quality.
