These days I mostly find myself listening to the music that comes
up on my Passion Pit / LCD Soundsystem Pandora station. But I love
all kinds of music and find it difficult not to sing or dance along
to whatever is playing. Most of my favorite artists are people that
I'm lucky enough to know. (If you don't know Pearl and the Beard,
seek them out!) But I also love the current crop of pop stars
including Lady Gaga, Katy Perry, and even Ke$ha. No, I'm not
ashamed to admit that. Regina Spektor is still near and dear to my
heart, as is They Might be Giants. My favorite album is either
"Healing is Difficult" by Sia or "Gone Gone Gone" by The New Deal.

I love foods of all kinds and I will try almost anything, but no
matter what mood I'm in I can always eat sushi, a good hamburger,
pasta, or any well-crafted sandwich. When it's time for brunch, I'm
almost always in the mood for eggs benedict. And then, of course,
there are cookies, ice cream, and red velvet cake. This list is
also woefully incomplete, but mainly because I'm full as I write
