Long before listicles ruled the earth, Don DeLillo said, "I don’t
want to list names because lists are a form of cultural hysteria."
I don't want to be hysterical so I'll keep this as listless as

I love lay-readable books about the brain, e.g., The Brain That
(Doidge), but mostly read fiction. Enjoyed the
most recent Murakami, and no, I don't think he's overrated. I love
authors brave enough to wander down blind alleys and holy-shit
talented enough to write themselves out.
I'm currently enjoying the hell out of David Mitchell's latest
book, it really reminds me of Murakami.
Music: I lean towards the Iron & Whiney and the AC
Newman-ismic/Tom Waitsian sides of the spectra but am willing and
able to let just about anything grow on me if you
passionate about it.

, The One I Love
, and Journey to the West
. Again, prefer
indie quirk to blockbusters, but willing to give anything a
TV: I believe we're in a golden age of television. Sure there's an
unprecedented number of HORRIBLE shows, but shit floats and cream
rises. Just skip the shit.
I'm cautiously ecstatic about the upcoming return of Twin Peaks on
Food: LOVE it. I want all of the foods. I run to support my food
habit. I really miss NYC restaurants and endless eating
