Currently reading Bicycle Diaries by David Byrne and The Savage Detectives by Roberto Bolaño. Also, delving deep into the True Believer by Eric Hoffer. Very much enjoyed The Stranger by Albert Camus.
Favorite song as a child, "Tears of a Clown" by Smoky Robinson. "Ceremony" by New Order has stolen my heart now. "Spinning Away" by Brian Eno sets me floating off. I heard Sugar Ray did a version of it...I think I'd be into that. A few other artists sprinkling my lawn - Joakim, Jakko Eino Kalevi, John Maus, HNNY. The Radio Dept. is my pizza: never gets old.
Favorite shows include the Bachelor and Twin Peaks. They're in sort of a similar genre, so, maybe that's cheating. Freaks and Geeks really made me wish I grew up around the time I was born. Louis CK brings the lols.
