The last two movies I saw that were absolutely worth recommending

Dave Eggers is my favorite author. Jonathan Safran Foer is my
half-favorite-author-that-comes-next. I find poems, poets, &

In terms of music, I am a sucker for banjos...but my musical tastes
are too extensive & eclectic to be summed up here, so let's

serial killers--& the awful things man can do to his fellow
man-- absolutely fascinating. No, not in the
cool-I'd-like-to-try-that way, but in the
how-could-anyone-fucking-do-that way. Again, no, I don't find this
