Books: Some recent reads I enjoyed include You Deserve Nothing, The
Shadow of the Wind, Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close, aaaand
Mindy Kaling's book. I discovered a frightening amount of
similarities between me and Mindy Kaling. She might be my soul
Also currently reading Oliver Sacks' Musicophilia. I'm strangely
infatuated with Oliver Sacks.
I'm trying to read more but it's haaaard.
Music: let me just start by saying that I LOVE MUSIC. I often wish
I had chosen to be a musician as my life path. Sadly my actual
music skills haven't developed past like age 13, but I have an ear
for it and love singing (so let me into yer band, is what I'm
saying). ANYWAY, here are some random faves: Beirut, Little Dragon,
Erykah Badu, Esperanza Spalding, Frank Ocean, Jessie Ware, Lauryn
Hill, Rufus Wainwright, D'Angelo, Antibalas, Local Natives,
Miniature Tigers, Young the Giant, Toro y Moi, Dirty Projectors,
Alabama Shakes, Quadron
Movies: I'm terrible at seeing movies. I would be interested in
remedying this. But if you must know, I watch Love Actually at
least once a year. Usually around Christmas.
Shows: Portlandia, 30 Rock, It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia,
Parks and Recreation, Saturday Night Live... I'm all about funny
Also, Radiolab! Let's talk about Radiolab!
