I don't like Hemingway. Or Lolita. Apologies if that's a deal breaker.
I'm really into the Avett Brothers, and have been for years now. Whenever I'm in New York on a Monday or Tueday, I go to a Bluegrass jam in the village and it's pretty much my favorite thing in the city. I badly want to learn the banjo. Also: Sam Cooke, Otis Redding, and Ella Fitzgerald; Led Zeppelin, Creedence Clearwater, and The Doors. Brahms' Trio No. 1 and Rhapsody in Blue. Also, recently discovered Kacey Musgraves, Alabama Shakes, Lake Street Dive, and St. Paul and the Broken Bones. They're real good.
Lawrence of Arabia. Did you have to ask?
