My embarrassing admission is that I hardly read any books these
days, but I'm an honest type so there you have it! Last ones I read
were "The Road" by Cormac McCarthy (finished quickly), His Dark
Materials trilogy by Phillip Pullman (finished in wide breaks and
intervals), and "Wild Things" by Dave Eggers (unfinished). Used to
be a total bookworm when I was younger, pre-internet (damn you
world wide web, your distractions are endless).
As is to be expected of someone who works at a record spot, I
listen to a scary amount of music. Weird indie hip hop is
definitely my speciality field, but I'm open-minded and always
interested in hearing other people's music picks. My favorite
releases of 2010 so far are: Qwel & Maker "Owl", Dessa "A Badly
Broken Code," Dark Time Sunshine "Vessel," Homeboy Sandman "The
Good Sun," Factor "Lawson Graham," Soulcrate Music "The Heartland
Panic" and The Opus "Praying Mantis - Plus." There've plenty of
other great releases, though, and plenty more emerging in the near
future. Did I mention I occasionally make mixes for people I like?
I watch way too many movies... I go through different phases where
I'll devour a lot of films by a particular director (Lars Von Trier
recently got this treatment) or in a particular theme or genre. I
also have a deep-founded love for movies ripe with camp value,
particularly horror and exploitation films from the 80s. Some of my
favorite movies are: "Mulholland Dr.", "Buffalo 66," "Dead Man"
(<3 Jarmusch), "Mister Lonely", "Rushmore," "Dogville," "Eternal
Sunshine of the Spotless Mind," "Leon: the Professional," "Pulp
As far as food goes, I'm an omnivore that's open to just about
anything. Be it Mexican, Indian, Italian, Japanese, Chinese, Greek,
Ethiopian, American, etc. I will eat it if it's good. I will not
turn down a dish just because it sounds disgusting from a
descriptive stand point, or looks disgusting from a visual stand
point. I try to keep my diet interesting and varied, though I don't
always get enough greens and end up subbing chocolate in it's
place. Got a pretty major sweet-tooth, in fact I'm practically an
ice cream connaiseur at this point.
