Poetry is not usually my bag, but I'm recently obsessed with Alice
Notley's "I am Vocal and Salt" -- my favorite bit:
"Momma he won’t shut up. They don’t even know
how to speak they understand each other
saying nothing words. I’m tormented because
I can’t find someone with an ear. God has an ear
but there’s no god. There must be someone
who can hear delicacy and fierceness mixed"
Shows - Girls, Damages, Ab Fab, and all the usual suspects.
Music - Dirty rap and indie pop (and bluegrass... shut up)
Movies: Powder, The House of Yes, Steel Magnolias, Magnolia, Edward
Scissorhands, Tree of Life, Cloud Atlas, Lemony Snicket's: A Series
