David Sedaris, Chuck Klosterman, Nick Hornby, Michael Lewis,
Earnest Hemingway, John Steinbeck. My favorite book ever is either
The Stranger or To Kill a Mockingbird. I read both the "Dragon
Tattoo" trilogy and "Hunger Games" trilogy in record time. And
while it's not really a book, I'm obsessed with Lucky Peach
The Big Lebowski, Once, Anchorman, Almost Famous, 500 Days of
Summer, Lord of the Rings trilogy, 50/50, anything John Hughes,
Wonder Boys (remember Katie Holmes before she was crazy?) Run Lola
Run, Amelie, and the movie that started my obsession with film,
I may watch a lot of tv, but thanks to my DVR I do so more
productively! My latest obsession is Downton Abbey but also Bravo
for bad reality shows, Showtime for Shameless and Homeland. Other
favorite shows are Girls, Mad Men, Portlandia, No Reservations,
Breaking Bad, Top Chef, Big Bang Theory and the occasional House
Hunters International marathon.
I've just started buying some of my favorite albums on vinyl as I
love the bigger canvas for the artwork and the sound of records.
Some of my favorite bands:
Of Monsters and Men, The Head and the Heart, The National,
CHVRCHES, MS MR, M83, Phoenix, the Lumineers, Radiohead, Lord
Huron, Florence + the Machine, the Swell Season, Saint Etienne,
Local Natives, Freelance Whales, Ryan Adams, U2, Spoon, Stars, Rilo
Kiley, Arcade Fire, Crowded House, Metric, Band of Horses, the
Verve, Depeche Mode, the Naked and Famous, Travis, Portishead, the
Beatles, the Shins, Neil Finn, the Postal Service, Mumford &
Sons, to name a few...ok, that's more than a few but I told you up
front that I'm a music nut!
Food: a nice steak, sushi, pizza, a great burger (ask me for my
burger list) red wine. I also make a mean fish taco.
My new favorite pizza place in the city is Una Pizza Napoletana in
SOMA though Pizzeria Delfina will always be #1.
