My tastes are all over the place.
Music: I have no idea where to begin, so I'll just pick a letter at
random and list some of my favorites: (B).
Bob Dylan, Beastie Boys, Ben Gibbard, Bob Marley, Belle and
Sebastian, the Beatles, the Band, Bill Frisell, Bill Callahan,
Billy Bragg & Wilco, Bjork, the Black Crowes, Blind Melon, Bon
Iver, Booker T, Billie Holliday, Brett Dennon, Bright Eyes, Built
to Spill, Buddy Holly, B.I.G. (the Notorious) <-- okay, that
last one was kind of cheating.
My first concert was Paul Simon, and I still adore him. I've
probably been to about 1,000 shows in my life.
Movies: Yeah, I'm one of those guys who loves Wes Anderson movies.
Also most films by Christopher Guest, the Coen Brothers or Woody
Allen. Basically, I love anything with heart or wit; not usually
into shoot-em-up action flicks. Ten years later, I still think
about Lost in Translation.
Food: Every day I reminded to be grateful to be back in NYC. Even a
slice of pizza on the run tastes better here. I could probably eat
sushi for every meal. Big fan of all the healthy options this town
has to offer, and I'll never say no to Thai, Indian, or
Books: Even thinking about Hemingway's For Whom the Bell Tolls
gives me goosebumps still. But other than Ernest, I read a lot of
nonfiction -- Dylan's Chronicles, The Power Broker, Moneyball, Into
Thin Air & Into the Wild, and most everything by Malcolm
Gladwell and Bill Bryson. And FWIW Dr. Seuss's "Oh! The Places
You'll Go!" is brilliant. It really is.
Shows: Don't watch too much TV now, but favorite shows in the past
have included Freaks and Geeks, Arrested Development, Six Feet
Under, Parks n Rec, 30 Rock, Firefly, Curb Your Enthusiasm, Jon
Stewart & Stephen Colbert, or any well-made science show on the
