Oh I also write a column about grammar for The American Reader, it's supposed to be funny and sometimes is: http://theamericanreader.com/author/michael-roberts/
I'm a sucker for old French movies and film noir, but also love horror movies both good and bad. I also think that Pixar has brought about a real golden age for children's movies (I can barely handle Up). In the Mood for Love, The Red Shoes, and Fanny and Alexander are my absolute faves.
I really like the Modern Lovers, the Cure, Jens Lekman, and Belle and Sebastian. I also like dance music of all kinds when I'm out drinking and dancing. I've been through the requisite punk, folk, and house phases and like to revisit them occasionally.
my cat of course.
