Books: "Bodies in Motion and at Rest" and "The Undertaking" by
Thomas Lynch; "House of Leaves
", "Born Standing
Up" by Steve Martin, "The Virgin Suicides", a couple Chuck
Palahniuk novels, and lots of non-fiction (really love Michio
Kaku's books on theoretical physics). "When Rabbit Howls
" by The
Troops for Truddi Chase would knock your socks off, but many
probably couldn't make it through it. Plato's Republic.
Freakonomics is really fascinating, about to start

Music: my iTunes library probably implies someone with
disassociative identity disorder... Rock, hard rock, alternative,
metal, post-rock/post-metal, electronic/dance, ambient, lots of
classical and whatever else tickles my fancy. I grew up listening
to classic rock bands like Allman Brothers
, Pink Floyd
Skynard and Neil
, and I've even got some Eurythmics
in my emotional memory.

Electric, Unearth, Mastodon

Favorite restaurants in LA include: Red Lion, Gates of India, Best
Fish Tacos in Los Feliz, Griddle Cafe, and when all else fails,
Cuisines: thai, indian, sushi, some chinese, some italian, mexican
is growing on me, and always room for a good burger. Anything
spicy, or that I can make spicy.
