**Keeps changing. I'll be happy to show you the current state of the current one. Just ask.
"Mozart in the Jungle" - if you've ever tried to collectively create something beautiful, this show will speak to your heart as it has to mine. Also: it features Gael Garcia Bernal as a caricature of Gustavo Dudamel who in turn even gets a little cameo.
"Love in the Time of Cholera" - I do love me my Bolaño and when I want to feel dark there's always a Vargas Llosa I have not yet read. The fascination for Cortazar eludes me, though, and for nearly three months now I have been novel-less. Please help! I seem to read in phases. I've had my "great Russians", my "classic Cyberpunk", my "everything Alan Moore wrote and inspired" and so on, but my magical realism phase seems to be on the way out.
Music-wise I don't really do favorites, my taste seems to vary by the hour. Safe picks are MBP (musica brasileira popular), Afro-Beat (everything up to Fela/Tony Allen... but give my some early sixties highlife to see me eargasm instantly) and Modern Jazz.
If that sounds pretentiously altruistic, consider that my personal comfort zone is waaay to the left of the current political mainstream. It really is just a long-term take on egotism.
