So yeah. Things are pretty great right now.
Outside of work: playing pool, making weirdo net art, always trying and failing to get a good night's sleep. Baby steps.
Movies: Bad Lieutenant, Do the Right Thing, Down By Law, Gates of Heaven, The Holy Mountain, Metropolis, Repo Man, This is Spinal Tap. Crown International teensploitation crap, schlocky VHS bullshit, the cheaper the better.
Music, lately: Big Star, Bill Orcutt, Boredoms, Boris, Can, Chavez, The Dead C, Fucked Up, Giorgio Moroder, Harvey Milk, Jawbox, Lungfish, Miguel, Oneida, Psychic TV, Scritti Politti, Silkworm, Sugar, Swans, The-Dream, Unrest, Unwound, The Vaselines, The Wipers, Wire. WFMU, WPRB, WMBR. Comedy podcasts galore.
TV, lately: Black Mirror, Bob's Burgers, Bojack Horseman, Fargo, The Leftovers, Orphan Black, Review, a TON of reality garbage I can't shamelessly cop to right now. Trust me, it's bad.
Food: Regional barbecue appellations (always: galbi, eastern NC, TX hill country), Cambodian, Xi'an, Pueblan. Oysters, soft-shell crabs, kimchi, collards, asparagus. Strong flavors, fermented foods, and spicy stuff. Always game to try new offal/other unmentionables, seasonal seafood, and glutinous, uh, things. Constantly working on improving my hacky knife skills.
