My all time favorite book is probably a toss up between either
or Rousseau's Confessions
. I like a
lot of classics and philosophy, but I also really enjoy SF/Fantasy.
Genre favorites include Iain M. Banks, Scott Lynch, Guy Gavriel
Kay, and Gene Wolf. Currently trying to read this collection of
classic 50s sci-fi, but haven't had much time to really commit
lately. I subscribe to Jacobin
Music: My other great passion. I'm really digging Brown Bird
, and Father John Misty
these days. I'll go through phases
where I'm exploring a genre or an artist, but Bob Dylan and Willie
Nelson are enduring favorites, along with Kenny Burrell, Bill
Evans, Gabriel Faure, Nas, and many others. But really, Jazz is
just the best. Saint James Infirmary
is probably the best song ever
written. Blossom Dearie is underrated.
Movies: Both high and low brow. Favorites include Red Beard
8 & 1/2
, Die Hard
, The Thin
, Carpenter's The Thing
, and The
. Recently watched Errol Morris's Tabloid
that was a hoot.
TV: Behind the times when it comes to shows. Favorites include
those Timm/Dini cartoons based on DC Comics. Currently watching and
really enjoying Orphan Black
with some friends. I probably
haven't seen your favorite show.
Food: Pretty much everything but mayonnaise. I've been
experimenting with my broiler recently, and have perfected the pork
chop. A little magical cartoon chef teleported in and gave me a
trophy and everything.
