Figuring out how to make crust in time to bake a strawberry-rhubarb pie while it's in season is my current mission in life.
Music: funk, soul, R&B, and disco. Donny Hathaway, Chic, The Mary Jane Girls. Had a monthly DJ gig in the Mission for years, and--many years ago--was a house music-listening club kid. Have a special soft spots for mid-60s pop ("Bend Me, Shape Me," "Carrie Anne," "Windy"), and for 80s freestyle ("Point of No Return," "I Can't Wait," "I Didn't Mean to Turn You On"). Bill Frisell is the coolest musician alive in America right now.
Food: I like breakfast for dinner, Korean BBQ, pie (vs. cake), green curry, baba ganoush, nectarines, and things you would find in a Jewish deli.
TV: I'm a "Columbo" freak. Is anything on TV these days actually better than Columbo? I love the way he circles his prey, and the queasy look the perps get on their faces when they realize he's onto them.
I like baseball. Wanted to play 3rd base for the White Sox when I was a kid.
Side note: Unless a man is an overweight criminal defense lawyer from Louisiana with country ways that belie a skewering intellect, he shouldn't wear a seersucker suit.
