Books: I love fiction but I read a lot of history, recently a lot
on South Asia/Afghanistan. The first book to change my life was The
Fountainhead. I conquered Infinite Jest and loved the hell out of
it. To me, Fitzgerald's prose is incomparable.
Movies: Sundance bait, documentaries, things that make you go "oh
fuck, my god damned mind."
Music: NPR (Serial, This American Life, The Moth, Radiolab, Snap
Judgement, Bullseye, Fresh Air, All Things Considered, Metro
Connection). And a lot of music. 80s hits, Madonna, Flying Lotus,
The Weeknd, Blood Orange, Hall and Oates, Simon and Garfunkel, Sam
Cooke. It goes on and on.
Food: Everything. Trying hard to be a better cook, focusing
particularly on Indian food and baking.
