I read a lot of books while I am on public transportation (part of
my bike commute). Mostly I read fiction cause I exhausted myself
with nonfiction during my undergrad and post grad years.

the Dragon Tattoo series, Book Thief, Night Circus, The Golem and
the Jinni, Unbearable Lightness of Being, Time Traveler's Wife,
Master and Margarita, The Poisonwood Bible, Ferdinand, The Sweetest
Figs, Movies: Amadeus, Amalie, Bridesmaids, Due Date, the Secret
Life of Walter Mitty, Savages, Dinner for Shmucks, Sherlock Holmes,
The Princess Bride, the Jerk, Traffic, Pan's Labryinth, Babel,
Volver, Delicatessen, The City of Lost Children, Cinema Paradiso,
Before Night Falls, Chocolat, Almovodar movies, Emir Kusteric
I usually hear about popular tv series when the it's in it's 2nd
season and feel too late to catch up. I have liked Newsroom
(curious about the Walking Dead, Game of Thrones and other new
series). I have started watching Breaking Bad, True Detective and
Orange is the New Black on Netflix so, I am catching up!
Music: I've become a lazy Pandora listener--out of the 100:
Bossanova, Bebel and Gil Gilberto, DeVotchka, Fleet Foxes, Manu
Chao, Neil Young, Fleetwood Mac, Marisa Monte, Bangra, Frank
Sinatra, Ella Fitzgerald, throw some blue grass, 70's and some
acoustic guitar or classical occasionally and I'm happy.
Food: Spicy! Thai, Vietnamese, Sushi, Indian, M. Eastern., Mexican,
a good hamburger or steak, now and then and seafood, like ceviche!
