Lists, lists, lists!
BOOKS: My top pick right now is without a doubt Jagganath by Karin
Tidbeck. Some old favorites are George Saunders' short story
collection CivilWarLand in Bad Decline, The Unbearable Lightness of
Being, Lolita, History of Love by Nicole Krauss, Breakfast of
Champions, We Need to Talk About Kevin, ISHMAEL. Edward Albee's
"Zoo Story" is the best play. Kafka's "A Hunger Artist" is a
worthwhile four pages.
I just finished Eggers's How We Are Hungry and loved it, so I'm on
to tackling A Heartbreaking Work of Staggering Genius. Though I'm
on hold because I left it at a friend's house by accident. If you
are reading this, and are the friend whose house I left it at,
please give me back my book.
Books are great. I highly recommend them. Everybody read
MOVIES: Beasts of the Southern Wild!!!
Also, The Darjeeling Limited, Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs,
Another Earth, Fargo, Up, Wet Hot American Summer, to name a
TV SHOWS: Louie, Portlandia, Arrested Development, Parks and Rec,

MUSIC: I am snoopin out new music but as of right now it's Alt J,
Fitz & the Tantrums, Alabama Shakes, Black Keys, Laura Mvula,
The Head & The Heart, and Thao & the Get Down Stay Down. It
should also be noted that Beyoncé is the queen of all things.
FOOD: Brussels Sprouts are my underdog of choice. Blueberries and
thai food are also pretty great. I love love cooking. As a recent
vegan, I'm digging the play element of finding new recipes and
