Trying to live my life like it's a Steve McQueen movie... with less driving.
"When someone asks you if you're a god, you say, "Yes!""
Also, I am a master of karate and friendship for everyone.
Things I believe:
Han shot first.
Nick Carraway killed Gatsby.
Lyanna Stark is Jon Snow's mother.
Radio play I did:
Explaining why Casablanca is not a love story
Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon
Raymond Chandler, Ernest Hemingway, Joyce Carol Oates, Thomas Pynchon, Vladimir Nabokov, The Iliad, Moby Dick, Don Quixote, the Thin Man. Conan, Riverworld, The Brothers K and Louis L'Amour.
The Brothers Bloom by Rian Johnson, best romantic movie most people haven't seen.
Right now I'm addicted to podcasts and am in the process of listening to every episode of WTF, Harmontown, The Smartest Man in The World, Girl on Guy, and This Feels Terrible.
For music, I like a mix of traditional jazz vocals, alternative Texas country, and 80s-90s rap, with random crap like Bruce Springsteen, Guns N Roses, and Lady Gaga thrown in. My favorite solo female country singer, Bonnie Bishop, just followed me on Twitter and it makes me giddy. No B-52's and no Rush.
Just found a new soft pecorino that makes me positively euphoric. I spend my days thinking of new things to stuff with prosciutto. I love to cook but don't do it as often as I should since I discovered Trader Joe's lobster ravioli. I gave up veal a couple years ago for moral reasons, and it's one of the hardest things I've ever done.
New recipes, particularly involving venison or ghost peppers
The closing of the American West/the Myth of the American Dream
Obama's unlawful detention and torture policies, Obama's betrayal of progressives, Obama's abhorrent militarism, Obama's fellating of Wall Street, Obama's murder of innocents with flying robots, how many people Obama is killing with drones this very moment
The fact that "octopuses" is correct.
New punchlines for "What do you get when you cross a black and a pollack?"
Lately, working out and catching up on TV
I've paid money to see Barry Manilow.
