I still have an ambivalent relationship with the Kindle app. I love
that it eases the confusion of reading several books
simultaneously, but I love the feel of paper and the manual turn of
pages. Books aren't supposed to be ephemeral, and when I have moved
apartments, I have only felt comfortable after my books are
unpacked and shelved. I read often for my tutoring jobs, but I'm
incorporating reading for fun into my days. Just finished The
Shining and I am starting to read Tom Perrotta's new book of short
stories, as I am hosting book club this month.
I majored in Russian Lit in undergrad and still love anything
I will always love Six Feet Under, Party Down, and Bored to Death.
Six Feet Under has impacted me most out of any show I've ever
watched. Bought myself the box set last spring.
*How is it that I forgot to write about music? I guess I'm so used
to talking about and seeing bands that I forgot to state what is
obvious to me. My favorite show this year thus far has been Chk Chk
Chk, and I am a huge fan of The Walkmen. Looking forward to seeing
Beck in a few weeks (for the first time since college)! Otherwise,
I enjoy the usual suspects. You can find Joy Division lyrics in my
journals from age 15 onwards since, you know, I am the deepest
person in the world.
Darron Aronofsky, Noah Baumbach, Lynne Shelton, Mark Duplass (other
privileged white people who create films about white people
problems), Alexander Payne. I suck. What can I say. We need more
movies directed by neurotic people of color.
