Loved The Wire, Project Runway, Breaking Bad, RuPaul's Drag Race.
I've been doing the live streaming netflix thing more than watching
TV recently, although I have fairly low standards as far as TV is
concerned. I prefer comedy to other genres. The Goldbergs is OK. I
watch (and keep up to date on current events thanks to) Colbert and
Stewart. I listen to NPR.
My favorite food is avocado.
I regularly read New York Mag (though I let my subscription lapse).
I love books by and about New York/ers (Auster), Beats (Kerouak,
Burroughs), Russians (Lolita, Master and Margarita), short stories
by Cheever or Carver. Loved Middlesex, Cavalier & Clay, Life of
Pi, Oscar Wao, Freedom (Franzen), The Marriage Plot (Eugenides).
Just finished Just Kids.

Things I like that aren't books, movies, music or food: parties,
flea markets, antiques, museums and mellow bars, picknicking in
Prospect Park, biking around the 'hood, beaches, woods and
mountains, free concerts, block parties and hanging on the stoop in
