so what AM i doing with my life then? lately it has involved a lot of traveling, exploring this crazy world we live in, getting stuck for a while in its most beautiful, exciting, or cool parts, and then remembering how fun and beautiful the bay area is and coming back here for a while.
peripherally, i'm also trying to become a better cook, push myself creatively with my personal projects, and attain the body of an underwear model (in decreasing order of success).
stopping to smell the roses.
maintaining long friendships.
taking it all in stride.
carl sagan, tina fey, neutral milk hotel, spicy food, say anything.
for those who like long lists or are just kind of bored, BEHOLD! the long version:
music (representative but not comprehensive): neutral milk hotel, the rolling stones, lcd soundsystem, talking heads, animal collective, black sabbath, joanna newsom, and willie nelson. i also really like pretty icelandic stuff. and noisy japanese stuff. and almost everything that was on the radio when i was in high school.
books: i like magical realism eg Midnight's Children (Salman Rushdie), classic sci-fi (Phillip K. Dick, William Gibson), philosophical/historical fiction (Hesse, Thoreau, Dostoyevsky). Murakami who kind of does his own thing. i also really love history books, my favorite being Ideas by Peter Watson.
movies: i like blade runner and other gritty, classic sci-fi movies.i like awesome 90's coming of age movies like pump up the volume, reality bites, and most of all say anything. and historical epics like lawrence of arabia and doctor zhivago. i love the coen brothers, but so does everyone. i love early wes anderson but i think he kind of got stuck doing the same thing lately. michel gondry. wong kar wai. i also like star wars, like, a LOT.
video games: i like, creative, artsy, thought-provoking video games. because of our entrenched societal gender roles you probably don't, and probably doubt that they exist. but they do! and they are a very powerful form of expression in my opinion.
food: i like to cook thai food, home made spaghetti sauce, and vegan chili. i tend to be drawn to strong flavors like chili, garlic, citrus, salt, and glutamate, but i am really blown away when i discover a mild tasting food that still begs to be noticed, like the tomato soup i once had a chez panisse. i love the perfect pairings of textures and flavors, like crispy sesame crackers with strong blue cheese and fresh blackberries. i love all manner of alcoholic drinks, but especially peaty scotch, oaky wine, and bitter beer.
i have a secret way of making bacon that will change your life.
an open mind
friends and family
or, to borrow someone else's words, "how strange it is to be anything at all".
i'm not always that high maintenance though, sometimes i'm also cool with a good old fashioned bikeride-bar-crawl or netflix binge-a-thon.
... if you have something insightful or hilarious to say about all the jaw-dropping, awe-inspiring, earth-shattering, hyphen-necessitating realities that we are confronted with every day, yet must push aside for more mundane matters.
