I think I've topped out on books about the Vietnam War (May 5th
update: love him but I think I need to lay off Cormac McCarthy for
awhile)(September 22nd update: Not done with Vietnam and currently
very interested in current "conflicts". I really enjoy books by
journalists). I like literary non-fiction, re-found my love of
Pynchon in Inherent Vice, and have absolutely no regard for anyone
who makes decisions based on what someone else reads. If you read,
that is enough for me. Nothing is hotter.
Movies are nice. I gravitate towards documentaries but I will watch
any movie but I can't promise I will be awake at the end.
(September 22nd update: I purchased Teen Wolf on Blu-ray. I can't
really justify this other than the fact that Styles' peer
pressuring really comes alive in that format.)
Food is great. I enjoy it very much. I like to eat Vietnamese,
Indian, Thai, and Mexican particularly. I will show up on time for
a steak also.
Music can't be beat. Indie rock has always been my favorite but my
latest bent has been Waits and Bonnie "Prince" Billy (May 5th
update: add Solid Gold, Yuck, and a reborn interest in Samuel and
Hoover)(September 22nd update: Thanks to the magic of Amazon mp3
downloads I can rediscover the pleasures of Jesus Lizard, Eno's
Music For Airports, and The Highwaymen without the hassle of record
store clerks looking at me like a maniac.). My favorite live bands
all-time are Murder City Devils, Les Savy Fav, and Afghan Whigs.
And Low (May 5th update: I had tickets to Prince at Madison Square
Garden in January, didn't go, and now wonder what was so important
in my life that I couldn't go see Prince, I have no answer for
this)(September 22nd update: I actually do have an answer for this
but it is a long and convoluted story). I'd rather not box myself
in on this one so I will just say my favorite music is probably not
played on drive time radio (May 5th update: unless they play Liz
Phair on your drive time station)((May 5th EXTRA update: off the
first two albums of course)).
