BOOKS: I just looked at my bookshelf. It tells a sad story.
Currently reading Michael Chabon's Yiddish Policeman's Union. Some
all-time favorites include The Cheese Monkeys, Snow Crash, The Big
Sleep, Catch-22, Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy, Understanding
Comics, and Harry Potter. I try to trade off between "fun" books
and "smart" books. Also ton of graphic novels (read Box Office
Poison, it's amazing).
MOVIES: I'm a fan of interesting style and clever writing. I have a
soft spot for Marx Brothers movies, When Harry Met Sally, Black
Dynamite, High Fidelity, Swingers, Brick, and things by Aaron
Sorkin. Oh, and I have been a part of and attended many midnight
showings of Rocky Horror. I've seen my fair share of indie and
foreign flicks, and liked most of them. My favorite thing about
movies is talking about them with other people, whether they like
them or hate them.
SHOWS: Lots of comedy and sci-fi, but also shows like Mad Men, The
Wire, and Deadwood. I keep up on a lot of TV while I'm doing other
PODCASTS (yep, threw those in too): This American Life, Radiolab,
Harmontown, Sklarboro Country, The Nerdist, and My Brother My
Brother and Me.
MUSIC: The Sheepdogs, The Raconteurs, The Beatles (cliche I know),
Black Joe Lewis and the Honeybears, Cake, Tobacco, RJD2, Rodrigo y
Gabriela, The Protomen, a fair amount of Miles Davis-era jazz, a
leftover teenage love of ska and punk, and an odd fascination with
FOOD: Great coffee is big. I like to eat out and try new things,
but love the classics like a good peanut butter and jelly sandwich.
I tend to eat mostly vegetarian because I like to eat healthy. I
keep "kosher style" (no cheeseburgers, but don't expect anyone else
to). I like to cook but never by myself, unless it's homemade
pizza. And pie. I have a severe weakness for pie. If you have a
favorite type of or place to get pie, please let me know as soon as
