A recent trip to Montreal got me rereading some Canadian classics
by Mordecai Richler and Hugh MacLennan. I'd forgotten how amazing
these guys are. Why isn't Richler more popular here, I never
I have a knack for arriving in town a day after one of my favorite
musicians/bands have just played it (or having to leave a day
before). Last year it was Nick Cave in St. Petersburg, L. Cohen in
Berlin and a few weeks ago I went up to Montreal just after Arcade
Fire played and of course while I was up there they played down
here. I really need to figure this out.
Loooved Sopranos, Rome, Battlestar Galactica, Mad Men, Dexter,
Breaking Bad, Friday Night Lights...was ridiculously addicted to
(Some more lists, people like lists. Some favorite movies: Red, The
Godfather I&II, The Crying Game, Running On Empty, The Piano,
The Lives of Others, The 40 Year Old Virgin, Waltz With Bashir,
Silence of the Lambs, Annie Hall, Manhattan, Crimes &
Misdemenors, etc. ; Books: almost all Graham Greene, Joan Didion,
Willa Cather, Geoff Dyer, Larry McMurtry, Julian Barnes, Wolf Hall,
Gilead, Caro's LBJ Books, etc.). ; )
Total coffee addict. How to write about the importance of good food
without understating it (or being totally hyperbolic)...
Relatively recent convert to yoga and running. Not quite sure how I
did life without them.
Also a not so closeted, but maybe somewhat camouflaged, jock --
love my sports (to watch and to play).
