I share my outlook on life with a former brand of shampoo: Yes to tomatoes!
Baking a mean olive oil zucchini cake.
Teaching kindergarteners how to play chess.
I have been listening to, among others, the new Camera Obscura and Jon Hopkins, old Arthur Russell, and the fantastic Disintegration Loops box set a friend gave me. Also gone back to the Nick Cave and Warren Ellis soundtrack for The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford.
I come from a long line of Russian movie snobs, so obviously Tarkovsky and Paradjanov are two of my favorites.
