In my life, I've totally read books. I think, like most people,
that I don't have nearly the time to read that i'd like or rather
the reading that I do have time for would lead to a listing of
magazines and not books (see The Atlantic) or even worse, a listing
of podcasts and not books (see most things on NPR along with WTF
and Savage Love ect.) but in the past I've been exposed to
traditional novels such as
Wonder Boys by Michael Chabon, most things by Jonathan Franzen,
most things by Ernest Hemingway, Old School By Tobias Wolff, The
Coast of Chicago by Stuart Dybek, and The Daily Show With Jon
Stewart Presents: Get Ready For The Metric System!
I'm currently reading Mike Royko's collection 'One More Time'
Better Off Dead, Lost In Translation, Little Miss Sunshine, Old
School, Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid, and Real Genius. The
worst movie that I can think off of the top of my head is Gus Van
Sant's 'Elephant;' Boyhood is the best movie that I've seen in
quite a long time.
I'm surprised that I've never seen anyone just ignore that 'Shows'
suggests television shows and attempt to list their favorite
Broadway shows instead.
I mean, I'm a pretty big fan of music-this is not surprising. I'm
going to try to not get too self-involved in this list. If you'd
like to have an conversation about what I left off, I'll probably
get all flustered and blush.
-Washed Out- Paracosm
-Cut Copy, Free Your Mind
-Steely Dan, Aja
-Tokyo Police Club, Champ
-Joe Cocker, Joe Cocker!
-Fleet Foxes, Helplessness Blues
-Wire, Pink Flag
-R.E.M., Dead Letter Office
-Jefferson Airplane, Surrealistic Pillow
Once again, big fan. I'm always stopping at a local restaurant
hoping to find a new favorite. I'll plan a whole day-off around
getting to the other side of town to try something new
Lula Cafe-Just a good honest place to go
Calumet Fisheries -I didn't know that you could get to 3200 East in
Au Cheval- In a city full of expensive, mediocre burgers-an
expensive burger that is anything but
Santullo's-Did that bearded-dude even wash his hands?
Marion Street Cheese Market-I've found it! I've found a restaurant
in the western suburbs!
