Appreciating the absurd in everyday life. Like that one time I attended a Werner Herzog lecture entitled "The Search for Ecstatic Truth" and someone in the audience went into shock.

Currently reading: The Beautiful Fall: Fashion, Genius, and Glorious Excess in 1970s Paris by Alicia Drake and The Age of Extremes: 1914-1991 by Eric Hobsbawm.
Movies: Lots lots lots.
TV: The Twilight Zone.
Music: Pretty much anything you'd find at Dusty Groove. Disco, funk, soul, synthpop, italo disco, Piero Piccioni, Ennio Morricone, KPM Library, Raymond Scott, Yellow Magic Orchestra.
Food: Burritos and breakfast tacos. Tex Mex, Thai, and burgers. Also, my sweet tooth is out of control.

- You'd like to see a movie, go thrift shopping, or hit up book and/or record stores.
- You'd like to read Merleau-Ponty's Phenomenology of Perception with me.
- The only context in which you use the word "authenticity" is when you're heaping scorn on it.
