Recent books I really loved: A Visit From the Goon Squad, Just
Kids, The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao.
Movies: Recently I got pretty choked up watching Shut Up and Play
the Hits, but that might have more to do with my love for James
Murphy. Some life-long favorites include Trainspotting, Rushmore,
Fantastic Mr. Fox, The Wedding Singer, A Matter of Life and Death,
Casablanca, etc. I like watching Slacker (the Richard Linklater
one) because it makes me feel like I'm seeing something I was born
too late to be a part of.
Music: My favorite recent albums are probably from Wild Nothing and
DIIV. I also adore LCD Soundsystem, Arcade Fire, Beach House, The
War on Drugs, and The National.
Food: Just about anything with lime, garlic, and cilantro. I'll
take ice cream or sorbet over baked goods any day of the week.
