music. Music is the best." (FZ)
I like Everything. But as the saying goes, it doesn't mean Anything
unless it has guts, heart, and that swing.
Here are how my most favorite categories break down (with an
example for each):
Intellectual/"World"/Trancey Stuff: The show New Sounds on WNYC
with Jonathan Shaefer
Demographically Popular Music: Whatever-I-Can-Find on Youtube //
"Mellow Stuff" // or Bjork
Rock'N'Roll: Yo La Tengo
Folk/Americana: Gillian Welch and David Rawlings
Contemporary Composition (aka "weird stuff"): Roomful of Teeth //
I try to balance fiction and non-fiction. This keeps my brain from
devouring itself. I just re-read To Kill A Mockingbird, and I also
just went through a book of science fiction shorts selected by Ray
Bradbury and Alfred Hitchcock. Other than that, the best books I've
read recently are Stoner by John Williams, and A Visit From the
Goon Squad by Jennifer Egan. Favorites: Murakami, Alexie,
Hemmingway, and Brautigan when everything gets too real...
I love animated short films. I don't really watch a lot of feature
films, but when I was in Amsterdam this summer I saw Boyhood, which
really moved me. I've also been recently impressed by Her, Gone
Girl (I know it is a great book, smarty-pants), and one other that
I can't think of right now...
You can find me in my kitchen, listening to the radio, and making
something delicious many nights during the week. I'll eat just
about anything, if it's good. No longer a vegetarian anymore, but a
big fan of the vegetable kingdom.
