art, music, film, DJs, road trips, city lights, telling stories, and staying up late. Football! Indiewire. Pinup, Flying Lotus, the Arclight, getting lost in NYC, fresh-brewed coffee, thunderstorms, Instagram, Super 8, love letters, tattooed boys, glitter, wine. John Hughes movies, Jaws, mid-century modern, socially conscious hip-hop, inside jokes, HBO, superhero comics. Generally geeky pursuits, and any and all things nerdy. Dive bars. VIP. Bass so deep you can feel it. Sentence fragments. Lists.

The six things I could never do without
...besides oxygen, the sun, the moon, gravity, water, and air
