Like any self-respecting bleeding-heart liberal, I consume the New
York Times and the New Yorker regularly. Recently read: The Sense
of an Ending, 1Q84, The Orphan-Keeper's Son, Ready Player
I loved both Paul McCartney and Nine Inch Nails at Outside Lands. I
like to work to Steve Reich and Arvo Part. I like what I sing,
usually from opera, lieder, and old-school musicals. And what I
dance to at BRC. My back catalog has plenty of LZ and prog rock. I
like the current descendants of prog, e.g., M83, Sirius XMU. Loved
hanging out at Playa Jazz Cafe this year.
I'm somehow always behind on movies and really behind on TV. There
have been a few guy movie nights but I won't embarrass myself by
naming the films. I'd go to the movies with you, though!
I'm always up for local arts. Relatively recent stuff: Black Watch,
SF Playhouse, Andras Schiff, Matthias Goerne, Volti, six hours of
the Clock at SFMOMA, Arcadia, crazy shit at the Center for New
I'm an omnivore, but hit the produce section hard, meat is down to
a couple days a week. Kale and eggs is the best breakfast! I love
great restaurants (e.g., Range, St Vincent), but it's even better
to cook at home. Especially those three nights of the year when
it's warm enough to eat outside.
