Books I'm digging right now: Maxine Hong Kingston, Warrior Woman;
Friedrich Kittler, Discourse Networks; I also like Arundhati Roy,
Will Faulkner, and Henry James, who writes gems such as: "She had
always observed that she got on better with clever women than with
silly ones, like herself; the silly ones could never understand her
wisdom, whereas the clever ones--the really clever ones--always
understood her silliness."
My life is starting to resemble a Wong Kar-wai movie with wordless
trysts that end up not working out. I have a snobby taste in
movies: Red Desert, La Chinoise, Breathless, 世界/The World, Stranger
in Paradise, Vive L'amour, Bicycle Thief, Yellow Earth, Happy
Together, Xala, 2 to 3 things I know about her, The Other Half. I
was very underwhelmed by the new Hunger Games.
Television: TWIN PEAKS!! I'm a very sporadic television viewer. My
TV is netflix. Other shows I have been obsessed with at certain
points in my life: The X-Files, Battlestar Galactica,
My itunes collection stopped growing sometime in 2006, so here's
what I got: modest mouse, 2pac, m.i.a., Nas, NoFX, blink 182,
atmosphere, the roots, the fugees, lauryn hill, wilco, lupe fiasco,
denizen kane, typical cats, beatles, ani difranco, amy winehouse,
lady gaga, some others, I'm kind of out of the loop, but I do love
music I swear.
Food: The most recent cooking intrigue for me is how to make very
neat looking japanese soba noodles. I've been failing mostly. A
successful, although unrelated, experiment with coleslaw happened
over thanksgiving however. I like asian cuisines. And newamerican.
