Books: I need to read for pleasure more. I read a lot of music
journalism day-to-day and have a fairly constant interest in true
crime stuff as well-- it's some of the most thrilling nonfiction
stuff to read. But my favorite author of all time is Ray
Recent film favorites: Say Anything, Flash Gordon, The Perks of
Being A Wallflower, The Fountain (I don't think I will have that
good a cry again for a long time). I love most genres but
especially adore heartfelt comedy, coming-of-age stuff, film noir,
dark sci-fi, Hong Kong action, '80s horror and John Hughes
Shows: I have recently fallen in love with Twin Peaks. Other
favorites include the Wire, Community, Breaking Bad, Party Down,
Workaholics, and Game of Thrones.
I listen to a lot of different stuff. Lately: Boards of Canada,
Queen's Flash Gordon soundtrack, Angelo Badalamenti's Twin Peaks
soundtrack, Neil Young, The Chameleons, Smashing Pumpkins, and
Warren G and Nate Dogg's teamup on the immortal "Regulate."
Food: burritos, pho, kale, falafel, black bean veggie burgers, my
mom's apple crisp.
