I love books that can really pull you into a sprawling kind of world. The Savage Detectives and 2666 by Roberto Bolano, The Great Perhaps, Super Sad True Love Story, Oscar Wao, The Corrections, A visit from the Goon Squad and Let the Great World Spin.

Big fan of comedic films. A couple random favorites: The Apartment, Hannah and Her Sisters, One Crazy Summer. (The scene where Bobcat Goldwaith crushes a model town while wearing a Godzilla costume is maybe the funniest thing I've ever seen.)

Shows: Mad Men. Slings & Arrows. Downton Abbey until they started killing off main characters. Into The Bridge and Justified, too. Deadwood.

Some bands I like are: Wilco, Spoon, the National, the Strokes, Radiohead, the Smiths, Led Zep, Bob Dylan, Elvis Costello. At this moment I'm listening to Velvet Underground. I've also recently gotten into Roots Rock/Americana.

Favorite places I've visited: Costa Rica. Paris. Dublin. Marfa, Texas (trust me it really is cool) and Big Bend National Park.
