Here are various things I like: Jhumpa Lahiri, Michael Mann,
Community, Oasis, George Clooney, Steven Soderbergh, The New
Pornographers, House of Cards, historical fiction, Orange is the
New Black, Neal Stephenson, Goldfrapp, Justified, Matt Damon, Tool,
spy thrillers, Danny Boyle, John le Carré.
This stuff is more fun to discuss in person, anyways :)
Food? Yeah it's just awesome. I'm particularly loving all the
different varieties of South/Central American cuisine you get down
here. Papusas are so great. I can't believe I went the first 30
years of my life without eating one.
