Books: Mostly non fiction and mostly music related books.
Movies: Mostly indies, foreign film, documentaries, and older
stuff. I get obsessed with directors. Some of my favorites are
Werner Herzog, Jim Jarmusch, The Coen Brothers, PT Anderson, Wes
Anderson, Lars Van Triers, and Kubrick.
Music: There is over 100 years of recorded music out there in
countless styles from all over the globe. To tie yourself down to
one piece of the pie would be a sin. Some of my soft spots are
Blues from the 20s to 60s, Country music from the 20s to the 70s,
Rock and Roll from the 50s, NYC post punk from the late 70s to
early 80s, the modern indie and Americana music movements. All time
fav is Elvis Costello. Lately I've been falling deeper down the
Jazz rabbit hole and find myself in conversations with strangers
over what was Miles Davis' best period. I collect records and CDs.
Can't stand music on a computer.
TV:The usual stuff for people who like good TV. AMC, HBO, Showtime,
IFC shows. The crazier Adult Swim stuff. Louie. Deadliest Catch. Oh
and 60 Minutes. I love 60 Minutes, it's the best long form magazine
reporting on TV.
