Just finished Kazuo Ishiguro's works and all but George Saunder's
most recent. Both guys captivating in utterly different styles. I
will read Salinger's 'Nine Stories" at least once a year. Infinite
Jest is a masterpiece. I fell in love with David Mitchell"s Jacob
de Zoet, and I am distressed to see that Colin Farrell is playing
Peter Lake in Helprin's "Winter's Tale".
I depend on friends of all ages to educate me on music;
consequently, people seem to think I am very very well informed
when they play my ipod.. Sometimes I don't correct them.
How can you not love "Groundhog Day?" But Terence Malick's "Days of
Heaven" and Peter Weir's "The Year of Living Dangerously" cannot be
beat for sheer luscious moodiness and Von Trier' "Melancholia" is
slowly joining my list.
Lest you think I am too highbrow, be informed that I have a huge
crush on Dr. Drew of Celebrity Re-hab which I watch with no irony
or contempt. Joel Kinnamen from "The Killing" knocks me out, as
does the show. I also am crushing on Archer. A cartoon character ,
I know, but still.
I don't really even have an iPod.
